13 Beauty tips to try this Fall



Low temperatures, dry air, cold wind- Fall is when your skin, hair and nails need a little extra loving.

It’s time to update your routine a little and I’m not just talking berry-colored lippies and dark and moody nails.

Your skin is often under a lot of stress during warmer months (sun, water, wind, dry air) so it’s important to restore it and keep it healthy. Make sure your skincare routine includes a good moisturizer that’s rich in antioxidants and cell-communicating ingredients like Niacinamide- it improves skin’s elasticity, diminishes discoloration, enhances its barrier function and revives its healthy tone and texture. CeraVe Moisturizing PM Lotion is a great drugstore product that’s formulated with Niacinamide.


During summer we tend to drink a lot more water, since it’s pretty much always very warm and sunny and we get thirsty easily. I know that when Fall comes around, I don’t drink as much water as I do during summer, and it really shows on my skin- that’s why I always make sure to keep track of my water intake especially during colder months.


Our heating systems usually cause the air to feel extremely dry, that’s why it’s important to use a humidifier (even when you’re not sick)- it’ll put moisture in the air which will keep H2O levels in your skin higher and sooth dry and itchy skin .


Swap your coffee for herbal teas and start your day with a warm (not hot) glass of water and lemon juice from 1/2 organic lemon. Lemon has antiviral, antibacterial and immune-boosting properties that will clean your liver, boost your immunity, aid digestion, balance pH levels and help fight infections.


Soak your hands in olive oil in 5-10 minutes to moisturize dry and cracked cuticles.


When the temperatures drop, we tend to get a little lazy and often skip a few workouts a week. My number one rule is to never skip a Monday- if you skip Monday’s workout, you’re more likely to also skip the following day, and then you think “well, I’ve already skipped Monday and Tuesday, what’s the point of starting on Wednesday?” Being active doesn’t mean you need to have an extremely intense routine- going for a run or a long, brisk walk also counts.


You may not wear sandals everyday anymore, but it doesn’t mean you have to stop taking care of your feet. If your feet start to feel dry, apply some Vaseline on them before you go to bed, wear some socks and let it work overnight.

Nuxe Ultra nourishing lip balm


If you suffer from chronically dry lips you probably know just how annoying and even painful this problem can get at times. I always need to pay special attention to my lips during colder months because they tend to get even more dry than usually: I exfoliate them with a moist washcloth, then apply a used green tea bag by gently pressing it on my lips- this will not only bring relief if your lips are dry but also moisturizes them. I then apply a few drops of Jojoba oil or my favorite lip balm to seal in the moisture.


Prevention is the best treatment, especially when it comes to skincare. Just because the Summer is over, it doesn’t mean that you can stop wearing sunscreen- the sun still emits harmful UVA rays that can easily penetrate clouds- this is why you need wear sunscreen, even if the weather is dark and gloomy. UVA rays penetrate deep into the dermis, where they damage the collagen fibers- this can cause wrinkles and hyperpigmentation (age spots). Make it a habit to wear sunscreen every single day- just like you brush your teeth every day.


Fall is the best time to try treatments for your hair like deep-conditioning and hair masks. My favorite haircare product is still coconut oil. I massage it all over my hair, including my scalp, leave it on for a few hours (sometimes I do it overnight) and then wash it off. If your hair tends to fall out a lot (like mine does) I highly recommend you try a good Omega3 Supplement (I swear by Dr. Perricone supplements, I have been taking them for years).

avocado for healthy skin


It’s just as important to keep a healthy and clean diet during Fall as it it is during Summer. Seasonal finds like apples are full of antioxidants, brussels sprouts are a good source of folate and iron, squash has Omega3 fatty acids that will help your skin stay pretty and it’s also a good source of Vitamin A. And, of course, can’t forget pumpkin; it’s rich in Potassium and a good source of B Vitamins. It’s totally okay to indulge once in a while, but remember that foods that are high in salt will cause you to retain water which can lead to swelling (puffy eyes, anyone?).

Physicians Formula Nourishing Argan Oil


Oils have become my favorite thing, ever. I love Jojoba, Coconut and Argan Oils. You can use them on your face, your body, your hair, your nails, etc. I get my Jojoba and Coconut oils from Trader Joe’s, and my favorite Argan Oil is by Josie Maran, but I did find an amazing drugstore dupe from Physicians Formula. I also recently fell in love with Jurlique’s Skin Balancing Oil.


Nothing will boost your confidence like a few spritz of your favorite, signature fragrance

    These are great tips! I actually used to drink lemon water all the time, but now I’ve let that habit go. This is a great reminder to start again though – and these tips make me feel better since I’ve already been doing some of them :)

    I don’t know why I haven’t been doing half of your tips! I’ve just caught a cold and my whole body has become dehydrated even though I’m drinking more than 2 litres of water a day! I keep saying it but I also think I’m more determined than ever to actually create some sort of workout routine!

    Great tips I’m definitely bad at drinking lots of water and eating healthily in the winter, I just crave comfort foods in the winter! Having a dog really helps me stay active though, I tend to skip exercise more in the winter but I’d never hear the end of it if I tried to skip a day walking Riley, he loves his walks haha :) xx

      Oh definitely! That’s something that my grandma used to make for us every morning in winter: warm water with honey and lemon- it was the best thing ever and I swear that it helped every time I had a sore throat ;)

      Thanks so much Dagmara! Ahh I know it can be a little difficult to remember about drinking water, but you can also include some water-rich foods in your diet as well like cauliflower, red cabbage and peppers to compensate for that. :)

    I love how you take your blog pictures, just clean and crisp. Enjoyed reading all the tips and I always make sure to drink a big glass of water when I wake up in the morning and taking care of fluid consumption in winters is very important.

    Great list… I currently do the hot water and lemon. It is great for the digestive system. on the weekend I will add a little honey and red pepper. I know it sounds gross, but it is pretty delicious.

      Thank you! I used to use honey in my lemon water before I started my plant-based diet, but I’ve never used red pepper, sounds interesting! ;)

      I really want to try a Rosehip Seed oil, do you use a particular brand that you really like and could recommend I try?

        Oops I just saw this comment! I’ve been using the Rose hip seed oil from Now Solutions, but I’m on the look out for one that is better quality. I got this because it’s easy to find in health food stores and fairly inexpensive, but I’ve been doing more research and there are better alternatives out there that are better quality! I’ll definitely be doing a post once I find one :).

    I agree with all these tips! Hydration and moisturising is SO SO SO important. Keeping active is hard like you said as we get lazy.. but a cold morning run is very refreshing!
