How to update your beauty routine this Fall

Let's be honest: Autumn is finally here with its colder temperatures and shorter days. Apart from a few days of harsh wind, I have been pretty lucky here in Amsterdam as the temperatures were kind of mild until a few days ago. We definitely had a beautiful Indian summer!
As the weather is slowly but surely changing, I want to share with you my the top beauty tips in order to transition smoothly to the cooler season. Read below!



SKIN

As the temperatures drop, the lightweight moisturizer you diligently used to apply during the Summer is not heavy enough to bring a decent protection. The skin needs a bit more cocooning than usual. It is time to invest in a good moisturizer that not only can keep your skin moisture's in balance but also protect the skin barrier against environmental challenges.

Another important change to implement in Autumn is to get some health complements. Getting supplements is actually not needed if your diet is balanced and if you are in good health. But if you think you need that little kick, then, a daily vitamin C boost intake, for example, can have great results as it will help stimulating the defense mechanisms of the body while having positive effects on the skin.

BODY

As the humidity escapes the air, the skin may become a tad itchier or drier- with red areas appearing in particular zones such as the knees or the elbows. I swear by a good and quickly absorbed body cream that deeply hydrates, protects, and restores my skin suppleness. I like to apply it on damp skin after the shower as it keeps the moisture levels up throughout the day. My preference goes to lotions that are not greasy. I usually reserve body oils for the weekend as I have more time to enjoy the application ritual.

HAIR

Autumn is the perfect season to reassess your haircare routine and transition to a more caring and nurturing one. I have long and curly hair and I often get compliments on how my hair looks. I am quite "shy" on Instagram but I may post soon a picture of my hair so you can clearly see what they look like. I like using sulfate-free shampoos that are rich in conditioning and softening oils such as Coconut oil or Argan oil. Weekly deep conditioning is also an essential beauty step as it helps to detangle matted hair while preventing breakages or other damages. Coating my hair with a leave-in or rinse-out conditioner make them stronger, more manageable, and undeniably soft.

Beauty crush: discover Rosalena skincare

Before the summer, I came across a very cute british natural beauty brand via Instagram : Rosalena skincare. Rosalena skincare was founded in 2016 by Maya and Helena, 2 busy mama's turned beauty entrepreneurs.
They gently sent me a trial package to discover their skincare line....And today, I am super excited to tell you what I think of 3 of their products!



The Goodness and Tonic Face toning mist (£22.00 for 50ml)
The gorgeously scented face mist is a refreshing potion made with the addition of some the most aromatic essential oils such as Sweet Orange Peel Oil, Grapefruit oil and Bergamot oil. The scent is so gorgeous that I could mist my face all day long with it. The invigorating and vivifying effects are really noticeable and I just love how the ultra-fine toner quickly melts into my skin leaving a ultra-thin layer of moisture on the top of it. It is really lovely and refreshing and it is definitely a step I would not miss in my routine!


The Frank & Sense oil (£42.00 for 15 ml)
This could be the ultimate face oil to boost a pale looking skins, to decongest tired skins or repair devitalised skins. The unique combo between some top linoleic acid rich-botanical oils (Safflower oil, Pumpkin oil, Evening Primerose oil or Grapeseed oil) with calming ingredients such as Bisabolol and top hydrating & regenerating molecules such as Hyaluronic acid and Coenzyme Q10 makes this elixir a perfect all-year round evening treat. The texture of the oil blend is absolutely divine: the oil melts onto the skin letting its precious nutrients and goodness sink into it. The scent is lovely and the packaging is also maxi- cute! A few drops on this golden elixir each evening and my skin wakes up happy and rested the morning after. The price is quite steep but this luxurious oil is totally worth the purchase despite the small contenance. Love it!


The lip conditioning balm (£18.00 for 10g)
This is one of the cutest lip balms I have ever seen! With its waxy and nurturing texture, the  petroleum-free lip balm softens immediately the lips while leaving a refreshing and cooling effect due to the presence of Peppermint and Lime essential oils. I use it every evening before bedtime. It is nourishing and repairing and just so good! I love the stunning Pink packaging as well. This is a big big favourite! The balm is also not cheap but ... what a winner!


All in all, Rosalena skincare is certainly my 2018 beauty coup de coeur. If you are looking for that special and luxurious skincare natural beauty brand that delivers awesome results, there it is!
