Fall – my favorite time of the year. The days are getting cooler, the leaves will start changing colors soon, and school is starting! I tend to neglect myself a bit during the summer, focusing all my attention on my kids, so it’s nice to have a little more “me” time; maybe I’ll even do some shopping next week. While I’m not big into buying new clothes for every season, I do love investing in a new pair of boots and a handbag. Purses and shoes… they always fit! A fabulous new coat and one key piece of jewelry are also great buys.
My makeup and skincare routines change with the seasons as well. In the summer I hardly wear anything – maybe just some tinted moisturizer and lip gloss. I sweat the rest off, so what’s the point? And while I make sure to wear sunscreen every day, I probably slack on taking care of my skin otherwise. This collage illustrates some of my must-have Fall trends, as well as a few of my favorite skincare products from Neutrogena:
As for how my routine changes, since the weather gets colder, I have to moisturize every day. Can’t skip it. I also like to add a little more color, to make up for the lack of a tan! A product like Neutrogena Healthy Skin Custom Glow Blush & Bronzer is great because it’s a coordinated blush and bronzer that’s lightweight and blends effortlessly, so I can get a sun-kissed glow anytime. Along with the Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup, my skin looks and feels great!
I find myself sleeping less, so for those mornings I have to be up and at it bright and early, the Neutrogena Healthy Skin Brightening Eye Perfector is essential! It covers shadows and helps de-puff the eye area, hiding the awful dark circles under my eyes. And it protects my skin with Broad Spectrum SPF 25.
At the end of the day, to battle all the damage from the harsh summer sun, I’m fighting it with Neutrogena’s Rapid Wrinkle Repair line. However, I’ll first wash my face with something gentle, like Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash. I’ve used that since I was a teenager. But for those nights when I’m just too exhausted to do anything more, wipes are the answer! Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes are as gentle as water and safe to use around the eye area. Plus, there’s no need to rinse, so I can even do it on-the-go.
