Falling leaves, pumpkin spice, cozy sweaters—it’s finally fall, and we are embracing everything the season has to offer. In addition to a warmer wardrobe, we’re refreshing our beauty routine. Cooler temps have an effect on the health of your skin (think hands, face, and body) and hair—so it’s crucial to embrace a more nourishing beauty routine. Nothing scary here—just a few of our favorite products to keep you looking and feeling great all fall.
Happy hair is hydrated hair. So as chilly, windy weather ramps up, it’s important to restore hair's moisture balance. An effortless way to prevent breakage and damage is with Philip Kingsley Daily Damage Defence Leave-In Conditioner Spray. The nourishing formula strengthens and improves hair elasticity while weightless conditioners leave hair soft and shiny.
For hair that requires more serious repair, reach for Oribe Power \Drops Damage Repair Booster 2% Linoleic Acid. These super-concentrated treatment drops reverse damaged, dry hair restoring hydration and shine. And who says masks are only for skin? Christophe Robin Regenerating Mask with Rare Prickly Pear Seed Oil is a deeply regenerating hair mask that restructures, strengthens, and protects all hair types.
Nothing dampens a perfect fall day like dry, cracked, irritated hands. We’ve slathered our hands with all kinds of moisturizers in hopes of finding the holy grail of skin-saving hand creams. One of our favorites? MALIN + GOETZ Vitamin B5 Hand Treatment. Provitamin b5, almond extract, and fatty acids deliver intense hydration to repair and heal hands.
For soft, nourished hands, reach for Oribe Cote d'Azur Refining Hand Scrub. This indulgent polishing scrub gently buffs away dead skin cells leaving hands smoother, while macadamia seed oil creates a moisture barrier to comfort and protect skin against harsh weather.
Like your hair, your skin requires balancing hydration as the weather changes. For those of us in dryer climates, chilly weather can take a toll on skin leaving your complexion looking dull, dry, or even flaky. Luckily, Kosas Tinted Face Oil is formulated with soothing avocado, meadowfoam, and jojoba oils to nourish skin while imparting a smooth, velvety soft finish. To prevent shine, swipe rms beauty Tinted “Un” Powder across skin to keep makeup in place and looking fresh.
And while we’re on the topic of nourishing makeup, we can’t leave out a game-changing lipstick. We love Kjaer Weis Lipstick for bold pigmented color and a silky matte finish. Whether you’re going for a glam splash of color, or enhancing your natural lip color—this luxurious lippie will leave you lips feeling nourished and looking gorgeous hour after hour. To prevent smudging and to increase wear, use a matching lip pencil first, blot with a tissue, then apply lipstick.
For an effortless eye look, we like using Wander Beauty Double Date Eyeshadow Duo. The silky cream shadow works perfectly as a primer on lids imparting a flattering splash of color. Add eye-catching shimmer with the powder shadow for an eye look that shines.
The easiest way to keep skin looking and feeling beautiful? Creating a morning and evening skincare routine that works for you. Fall is the perfect time to refresh your beauty shelf with products that promote healthy, hydrated skin. Augustinus Bader The Rich Creami ntensely hydrates, nourishes, and supports cellular renewal to improve skin’s appearance.
And don’t let gloomy weather diminish your radiance. Restore moisture and luminosity with Youth to the People Superberry Hydrate + Glow Oil. The flash-absorbing brightening oil is formulated with loads of antioxidant-rich ingredients like maqui and Acai to intensely moisturizes the skin while calming redness. So go ahead—go apple picking, throw a handful of leaves, and stay up late watching scary movies. These fall favorites have you covered all season long.
