After much research and through personal trial-and-error, we’ve found the best autumn beauty tips and products to have you ready for the crisp weather ASAP.Have a FACE That Glows:
If you haven’t exfoliated in the past few months, then you will need to shed the excess dead skin build up by using a gentle scrub. Twice a week will do. A good exfoliant to try is Olay Regenerist Thermal Skin Polisher. Or, you can make your own sugar polish by mixing one packet of raw sugar with a few drops of virgin olive oil. It works! Gently massage your face in circles. Rinse off to reveal healthy and fresh looking skin. Anytime is the perfect time to start using Retinol-based products. You can ask your doctor to prescribe one for a collagen boost and a lot of radiance in your face. Just remember to use it at night only and to wear a sunscreen daily to prevent skin irritation. (You can wear it during the day but you MUST be sure to protect your skin from the sun.) Speaking of sunscreen, that’s a year-round ‘must-have’. We recommend you try one of these five natural sunscreens. Don’t forget to protect your lips. Use a non-petroleum based lip balm. Gorgeous Hands, Feet, Elbows & Knees: There’s nothing sexy about dry scaly feet. Slough off dead skin and get rid of roughness daily in the shower by using a pumice stone. Follow by a thick cream such as Burt’s Bees Coconut Foot Cream.Your hands should be protected with a sunscreen of at least a 30 SPF. To soften scaly elbows and knees abused by summer activities, hydrate with a rich cream morning and night. Dermatologists recommend using one with lactic acid or urea. Gold Bond Ultimate Softening lotion works great. Easiest Way to a Flatter Stomach: Stay away from heavy party casseroles and dips. Instead go for grilled lean meats and fresh salads with vinaigrette style dressing. You will be amazed at the results if you are consistent. The fastest way to flatten your stomach is to eat an unlimited amount of one type of fruit for breakfast. Follow with chicken or lean meat or tuna with vegetables and salad for lunch. And, for dinner, another fruit or perhaps fajitas with lots of veggies (onions, cilantro, tomatoes, avocado, etc).The simple act of combining these by mixing and matching vegetables with lean proteins plus staying away from sugars and flour based products will do wonders for your waistline. You will also have less inflammation that interferes with digestion. According to recent research, a diet high in monounsaturated fats specifically appears to decrease ab fat. Eat only good fats such as nuts, avocados, and olive oil. These will eventually replace the bad fats in your body and make a slimmer you. Well now you know of many ways to keep yourself looking gorgeous this Fall. To feel your best, simply do fun things while enjoying the company of your loved ones.
