When we think of fall, some of the first things that come to mind are yummy comfort foods, brisk air, pumpkin spice everything and Halloween & Thanksgiving, which will both be here before we know it! Here are a few tips we pulled together to help you make the most of the fall season.
Healthy skin is always in.
There are lots of ways to keep your skin looking healthy in the fall. One easy way is to consume the very same ingredients that you will find featured in some of the great seasonal products that you can apply topically. For example, the enzymes and vitamins found in pumpkins, apples, and beets are used frequently in topical creams, lotions and more, but are also great for you from the inside, too. Here’s how to incorporate both!
- Start out your morning with a pumpkin facial cleanser.
- Grab an apple to eat on your way to work.
- Enjoy a roasted beet salad for lunch with a cup of pumpkin soup.
- End the evening with a glass of your favorite regular or hard cider.
*Fun fact: did you know one of the key ingredients in Ortanic’s airbrush formula comes from sugar beets? It’s called Dihydroxyacetone (aka DHA) which is a colorless non-toxic sugar that reacts with the outermost layer of skin’s amino acid proteins to naturally produce a beautiful golden hue, minus the harmful rays of the sun!
Keeping it classy on Halloween.
Sure you might find a great deal online, but there’s a way to look cute AND be creative without going the “sexy meter maid” route. Here are a few costume ideas that are both smart and sassy.
Rosie The Riveter: Something about a festive bandana, showing off your “guns” and wearing a chambray shirt screams “We can do it!”
Flapper: This is a classic costume for any lady and can be made to be as flirty or “conservative” as you desire!
Mother Nature: You can cover as much or as little as you want with greenery like leaves and flowers. Celebrate our planet earth looking feminine and strong – as you know, no one messes with Mother Nature!
Get outside for the health of it.
Most people turn up the heat and stay indoors once the weather dips and it starts getting darker earlier. It’s fun to cuddle up by the fireplace but don’t forget fall is a wonderful time to soak up some afternoon vitamin D – take your latte outside and enjoy a few deep breaths. You’re bound to find yourself with more energy, not to mention, get a better night’s sleep!
