The leaves are changing colour and the air is becoming more crisp, this can only mean one thing, ** said in the voice of Jon Snow** Autumn is coming!
We have spent all summer sculpting our bodies, protecting our skin and enjoying the sun. Although it is hibernation weather, we should not neglect ourselves, our bodies still need some serious TLC during the colder months.
So we have an Autumn Survival Guide for you to help you keep your glow without that sun kissed effect.
Treat yourself to a haircut to trim away the damage done by the sun, and salt and chlorinated water. This is also the perfect time to start nourishing your locks in order to prevent the damage winter can do.
Tip: Apply coconut oil to your hair once a week for a luxurious shine and deep moisture treatment without any harsh chemicals!
Prepare your skin for the colder months by getting into a regular moisturising routine. Now is the time to switch to a richer, creamier moisturiser. The cold, harsh air will dry out the skin and become dry and flaky. Remember to exfoliate first so you remove any dead skin cells and so that your skin can easily absorb the moisture.
Tip: Prevent dryness and flakiness by using a hydrating face mask or serum on a regular basis. Do not forget to still apply sunscreen. Just because the temperature may be low, does not mean the UV rays will be less detrimental.
Cooler weather can dry our skins, especially the tender, delicate skin under your eyes. Make sure you use a moisturiser specifically for eyes.
Tip: Get rid of dark circles and puffiness by applying cool teabags, cucumber or coconut oil to the sensitive areas. Take care not to get it in your eyes!
4. Hands & Nails
Your hands are constantly exposed and can suffer from dryness in the colder season, especially around your joints. Keep them soft and hydrated by regularly applying hand cream.
The colder air can also make your nails more brittle, so be sure to file them at least once a week to avoid breakage.
In the cold weather, the craving for heartier foods is something we all get (if we are honest). The appeal of salads disappears with the heat!
Here we have an awesome recipe for Apple Pie Porridge that will keep your energy levels and metabolism functioning throughout the day.
2 medium peeled and diced apples.
2 heaped tablespoons of raisins.
¼ teaspoon of cinnamon.
400mls of sugar free apple juice (if you can press your own, that would be fabulous!).
100g rolled oats.
200ml of water, coconut or almond milk.
2 tsps of Oh My Glow Beauty Blend
Place the diced apple, raisins, cinnamon and apple juice in a saucepan, place the lid on, and cook on a high heat for 3-4 minutes.
Add in the oats, Beauty Blend and water/milk and simmer for a further 2 minutes.
Serve in bowls and sprinkle with a little cinnamon for extra flavour if desired.
