It doesn’t quite feel like here in NC, but summer’s definitely coming to an end. Whenever a new season rolls around, I take time to change out decor around the house, clean and declutter a bunch, and yes, switch up some of the products in my beauty routine!
I love everything about the cooler months, but as much as I love fall, changing temperatures sure can wreak havoc on our beauty routines! With the air slowly getting cooler and a bit harsher, I look for products that nourish and protect my skin. Today I am sharing my top fall beauty essentials to help you prep for the new season!
Soft skin is good all year round! In the cooler months we have to take that extra step to make our skin the softest it can possibly be. This is where a good body scrub comes into play. It’ll help to slough off dry skin to prep your skin for moisturizers and creams.
A Good Moisturizer
A good moisturizer is an absolute MUST in any beauty routine, especially in fall and winter months! In my opinion, the richer, the better. Nourishing moisturizers keep the skin on my body and the skin on my face happy, healthy, and hydrated. There are so many options when it comes to facial moisturizers that you can find at the drugstore or on your next Target run!
On a chilly night, what could be better than relaxing in cozy pj’s? A super hydrating or detoxifying face mask, of course! I don’t know about you guys, but I tend to mask more in the fall and winter time. I feel like my skin needs some TLC after being exposed to the harsher weather that those seasons bring. I love piling on a nice serum and then a moisturizer after masking to really treat my skin.
New Nail Colors
Now’s the perfect time to whip out the deeper, berry, and some vampy shades. I’m here for it! Nude nail colors also look really sleek for fall and winter. A pretty nail color always looks best with well cared for nails and hands, so well manicured nails and nice hand cream can make such a difference!
A Hydrating + Protecting Lip Balm
A good moisturizer for the face and body is something we all have to have, but we also need at least one for our lips too ladies! Lips that are too dry really kill any lip look we try to wear, so keeping our lips soft and smooth is key. I have so many lip balms, but I am extremely picky about which ones I choose to add to my rotation.
Keeping lips looking their absolute best makes us feel good. But be careful because all lip balms are not created equal! Finding quality balms that actually work is what’s important. I was recently introduced to a lip balm that I am loving as we transition into fall. I’m excited to share it with all of you ladies: Lypsyl Intense Protection Original Mint Lip Balm
Created with pure Swedish beeswax, Organic Shea Butter, Coconut Oil and vitamins A and E for long-lasting, deep-penetrating moisture and lip care protection. LypSyl Intense Protection helps moisturize, soften and protect your lips naturally. The unique one-hand slide allows for quick application. And, the oversized application tip ensures this ultra- light formula spreads evenly for better lip coverage.
- Minty flavor refreshes
- Organic Shea Butter heals & protects
- Coconut Oil moisturizes
- Vitamins A&E soften & heal
- Not tested on animals
I love the freshness of the mint flavor and how unbelievably smooth Lypsyl makes my lips! The packaging is adorable and my 3 year old son really likes the cute little bee slider on the side 🙂 The formula is so nice that I’ve actually used this on him before swim lessons each week.
The balm glides on clear and works great under any lip color or liner I am wearing. Most days, I have been wearing just this lip balm and find that I don’t have to constantly reapply it to my lips. What more can you ask for in a balm? Goes on smoothly, hydrates, and it LASTS!
The applicator is slightly more oversized than most lip balms and it allows me to get complete coverage in one swipe! Easy and convenient to apply anytime and anywhere, which is nice.
You can pick up Lypsyl for yourself at your local Walmart, Walmart.com, or Meijer. Lypsyl Original Mint Lip Balm retails for $2.99 . To find out more, head over to lypsylhome.com and follow lypsyllipcare on Facebook!
