How to keep your skincare and motivation in check during the chilly season.
The chilly fall vibes are officially here. While it’s been a long, challenging and exhausting year for us all, now is not the time to re-treat to your room until 2021 (even though we wouldn't blame you for wanting too). Instead, we’re going to stay motivated through Fall by maintaining our summer glow, exercising healthy habits and perfecting our fall skincare routine instead. Put on your best Fall playlist (we recommend Folklore by Taylor Swift), make yourself a pumpkin spice latte and read on, babes.
Hydrate and bronze
A change is in the air, which means it’s time to put your summer skincare routine to the side until next year. Winter skin is all about serious hydration. Rich, creamy moisturisers that are full of glycerin, hydrating butters and nourishing oils. As the temperature’s drop, our skin's ability to create natural oils really struggles, so an extra boost of hydration to protect the skin barrier is a must. Our top pick? The Bali Body Gradual Tan. The gradual tanning moisturiser is the hydrating body lotion your skin craves throughout Fall, mixed with a subtle bronzed glow so that you can maintain your summer tan without the sun. It’s the foolproof way to hydrate and bronze, no effort required. The best part? You always feel better with a tan.
Start a habit tracker
They say motivation is what gets you started and habit is what keeps you going. Write down your top 5 - 10 goals for the season and start a habit tracker. The goals can be as simple, fun or challenging as you like. Some ideas could include, a big walk outside daily, 30 minutes of reading before bed, swapping your afternoon coffee for a matcha latte to reduce your caffeine intake or learning a new Fall inspired recipe every week (Hello, oatmeal pumpkin cream pies). A quick google search of “printable habit tracker” will find you your tracker. Now all that’s left to do is print it off and fill it in. Keeping a habit tracker will motivate you to stay accountable and create healthy habits, which in turn will make you as happy as Emily In Paris each morning when she got her croissant. So, really happy.
Combine your coverage
Just because we're spending most of our time inside, doesn't mean you can't put on a quick face every morning. A glowing complexion will boost your mood and you'll look fab in Zoom meetings. To make sure you remember to apply your SPF everyday throughout Fall (yes, we need sun protection even when it's cold) combine it with your coverage. The Bali Body BB Cream is a multitasking beauty cream that does all the work for you. The skincare meets makeup product combines your SPF, with your tinted moisturiser and skincare. It’s the type of product that makes you feel better for skipping your skincare because it’s enriched with its own. Hyaluronic acid, marine collagen, SPF15 and a flawless, dewy glow. No wonder why it has over 1,000 5 star reviews.
