As the sunny days and sizzling heat of summer have come to an end, it’s time to change to a new hair and beauty routine. The shifting seasons can be the perfect time to try a new trend, and there are plenty of style tricks that will help you gradually change your look.
Our favourite style experts share valuable tips here for men and women to help you take your look to the next level.
1. Take a day of TLC
After hours under the sun, spend a day pampering your skin. Use a sugar or salt scrub to get rid of rough patches, impurities and lingering dead skin cells. Then, use a scented body wash like Caress Mystic Forever bodywash to seal in moisture.
The American plus-size model Denise Bidot is a fan. She says: “There is nothing more attractive than soft skin and good fragrance. I love how the scent is released hours after I use it.”
The fragrance touch technology in the bodywash releases bursts of iris and amber scent throughout the day.
2. Embrace your confidence
The transition period between summer and autumn is a great time to re-energise. Men can up their game by changing deodorants. AXE Adrenaline Dry Spray Antiperspirant leaves no visible residue and will help guys take on their day with the long-lasting fragrance of fresh, green woods.
3. Start with a blank canvas
Before you begin your beauty routine for the day, make sure your entire face is clean. Iris Beilin, the YouTube beauty guru, uses cleansing wipes like Pond’s Original Fresh Wet Cleansing Towelettes, to make sure her face is both dirt and oil-free. After that, moisturise and prime your face before putting on make-up.
4. Give your hair an intensive treatment
The elements can be hard on your hair but you can fight the damage with a coconut oil treatment. Celebrity hairstylist Leonardo Rocco recommends using a repairing oil, like Suave Coconut Oil Infusion Damage Repair Oil Treatment, to bring your strands back to life. Rocco says: “In the shower, put a few drops into your hands, rub them together and apply it to your hair from the middle to the ends. Leave in for three minutes, rinse and style as usual.”
5. Deepen your colour palette
Swap your gold, nude and bronze shades for a colour palette more suitable for the autumn season. Rich shades of plum pair well with matte textures and add warmth when you’re getting ready on those cooler autumn mornings. – BPT
