It’s officially Fall/Autumn! I really like the change of season, I think it makes you appreciate more time passing and the change in nature. But to be honest, this summer felt like it lasted 6 months and I am truly ready for a colder weather, teas, blankets and cosy sweaters!
With the change of season comes a different more adapted routine to make the most of this new few months so I’ve started changing my different routines.
Summer calls for a skincare routine based on cooling, light products to brighten the skin and make it look more fresh. With Autumn, it’s time for us to get more moisture into our skin to make sure its ready with colder weather and possibly wind.
I have normal to oily skin but I have discovered years ago that if an oily skin lacks moisture, it will produce even more moisture so I make sure to hydrate it well and I’ve seen a big difference. I have been using coconut oil as a moisturizer for almost a year now and I don’t see myself going back to a normal moisturizer. It hydrates my skin thoroughly and gives it a gorgeous glow. Using a hydrating mask is also crucial in the colder months, I particularly like the Sephora sheet masks as they are cheap, easy to use and definitely do the job. They have different types for different purposes and work wonders.
As it is less hot, I like to start working out outside. I know that for some people, they like working out outside in spring and summer but here where I live in France, it gets really hot and I hate feeling like I am about to pass out while exercising. I have started running again (still very early stages though) as our apartment is too small for my usual inside workouts and I think it will definitely help with my anxiety.
New school year, new healthy resolutions. Summer makes it easier to eat healthy, we eat lots of salads and fresh produce but when the start of the school year/work starts again, I find it difficult to eat well because I don’t have a routine yet. On top of that, it’s important to eat better when it gets colder again to make sure not to get sick!
We’ve been back to the apartment for two weeks now (I haven’t started classes yet) and I’ve been for sure not eating too many carbs and not enough veggies so of course I don’t feel body confident or energetic. Therefore, it’s time to catch again the healthy wagon and I’ve been writing down easy quick healthy recipes from my fave bloggers and Youtubers to get ideas and get excited for eating healthy!
Here comes the warmer tones and matter makeup looks! I love the berry tones and bronze-y looks so I am definitely preparing for that. Even though these colors won’t be the trend this year, I will for sure still use them. Out are the Kiko berry eye shadows and NYX lip creams, deeper nail polishes and hand cream!
And you, how do you prepare for Autumn?
