For Your Skin and Nails

Use Nail Overlays

With nail overlays rocking big time, you can now customize your nails to any color and pattern you can possibly imagine. Companies like Minx have nail overlays in patterns ranging from houndstooth to wedding lace. Another long lasting technique for your nails is to get a gel nail treatment. Both overlays and gel nails can last for up to two weeks. These products are also healthier for your nails and help them to grow, unlike acrylic nails which can be harsh on your nailbeds.

Keep Your Tan Throughout the Fall

You worked hard on your tan all summer, so why let it fade as the weather gets cooler? This fall, use products like Jergens Natural Glow moisturizers, Sephora Skin Transformer, or Neutrogena’s Glow Sheers Medium to Tan 40 to keep your warm skin tones without hopping in the tanning bed. If you’re “naturally tan”, then using a bronzer from a trusted drug store brand like Black Opal, can give you that summer glow.

Strive for Smooth, Silky Skin

Nothing represents health and beauty more than silky skin. In keeping with the trend of natural beauty this fall, pamper yourself with sugar scrubs (like Bath & Body Works’ Stress Relief Eucalyptus Spearmint Sugar Scrub). Apply sugar scrubs while taking a bath or a shower to remove dead skin, and in the process, enjoy the healing powers of aromatherapy. You’ll not only feel relaxed but your skin will appear radiant and healthy, two qualities that are always in fashion.

Embrace Woodsy, Natural Fragrances

Fall brings a sense of comfort, cooler weather, and time spent outdoors camping and raking leaves. So, it’s only natural that women will be embracing woodsy, autumn scents this season. These fragrances have a more romantic aroma than the sweet, flowery scents you will typically smell in the spring and summer. To sample a woodsy scent, try Victoria’s Secret Rapture or Bath & Body Works’ Twilight Woods.
