Beauty Favorites // Fall 2016

Beauty Favorites // Fall 2016

The weather in Coastal Virginia has finally (other than today's 75* surprise;) decided to join the season of Fall. And with that, comes a change in the air that can wreak havoc on your summer hair and skin. It's this time of the year that I move onto creamier, more emollient products. Ones that will nourish your hair and skin during the dry winter months. For me, with my naturally curly hair and combination skin...these products are helping me transition out of summer into the cooler months on a budget!

TRESemme Botanique Hair Mask: I use this once a week to add moisture back into my curly hair. Curly hair is already drier than most, so this mask gives it that extra oomph that it needs this time of the year. Plus, it smells really great!!

Carols Daughter Hair Milk: I don't wash my hair everyday because 1. it's not good for it and 2. it's time consuming! On the days that I don't pile it up on my head in a bun and actually dry it curly, this refresher spray is a lifesaver. I'll go to bed the night before with it up in an elastic and then the next morning spray this on my locks, use the diffuser on my hairdryer and voila....I'm good to go for another day. Truly great stuff!!

Burt's Bees Sensitive Facial Cleansing Towelettes / Clinique Clarifying Lotion #3: These are actually a year round staple for me. I have combination skin that can be sensitive at times. The towelettes get the majority of the day's makeup and grime off before I use my clarisonic for thorough cleansing. Then I follow up with the the clinique lotion on a fluffy cotton pad to refresh my skin. Feels oh so good:)

Clinique All About Eyes Rich: As I get older one of the areas that I'm really trying to combat is my under eye area. Stress and DNA have both brought out the puffiness and dark circles unfortunately. I started using this super rich eye cream in October and it's made a world of difference. I can feel the skin below my eyes tighten after application and I've noticed a considerable reduction in puff and darkness over the last few weeks. This is probably going to be a year-round staple for me. I'm totally sold!

Clinique Moisture Surge: To combat the extra dry air that has descended upon us, I use a humidifier at night and this gel-cream twice daily. It's cool and refreshing and doesn't make my combination T-zone oily. I also find that it makes my foundation go on a lot smoother and that's always a plus in my book!

So there you have current cool weather hair and skin favorites. 
When we get into the thick of winter, I'll share some of my other faves...
especially those items that keep my whole body soft and healthy.
