Just because summer and beach time are behind us and fall has offically arrived (today in fact), it doesn’t mean you should, er, fall out of your healthy living and eating routines. Autumn is the perfect time to get ahead of your wellness goals so you don’t completely lose your way during the gluttonous holiday season. And even better, you won’t have to start from scratch come spring! By following a few easy tips for staying strong and active this season, you can achieve flawless skin, a strong immune system and a generally healthy glow. The sooner you start, the sooner you reach your best self.
For Your Health!
Being on top of your health game starts with staying hydrated. Drinking the recommended eight 8-ounce glasses of water per day keeps your skin clear and body free of toxins. Do good for the environment by investing in a sustainable bottle you can use over and over again.
Whether you partake in an hour-long kickboxing class a few times a week or prefer a leisurely stroll in your neighborhood after a long day, staying active is important for maintaining a healthy body. Once you get in the groove, exercising can be a lot of fun—especially when done in supercute activewear.
Protecting your face from environmental stressors is crucial to keeping naturally youthful skin. By applying sunscreen before an outdoor activity (we always wear it underneath our makeup) and moisturizing with lotions, serums and balms, you can make sure your complexion stays pristine.
Sipping your superfoods yields major results. Packed with a plethora of powerful greens, high-vitamin fruits and plenty of unconventional but beneficial ingredients (ginger root, jalapeno, cayenne), pressed juice is more than just a craze—it's liquid gold.
Maintain your skin's elasticity and smoothness by paying close attention to it—especially during a shift in seasons. The transition from summer to fall can result in dryness and dehydration, which can be cured by exfoliating and moisturizing. It pays to pamper yourself!
While it's a myth that a full 8 hours of sleep is absolutely crucial, it doesn't hurt to hit the snooze button every now and then. A well-rested body means a well-rested mind, and sleep is proven to increase your mood, strengthen your immune system and sharpen your memory. If you have trouble falling asleep, we recommend investing in an ultra-cozy pajama set to make catching your Zs a chic (and easy) feat.
