Fall Skincare & Makeup Tips:
Hoboken, NJ’s Guide to Seasonal Beauty

As the crisp autumn breeze sweeps through my favorite town on earth, and leaves don their vibrant fall colors, it’s time for your skincare and makeup routine to follow suit. Fall brings about a change in weather, and your skin craves a different kind of pampering. In this blog, we’ll explore why your skin adores the autumn season and share tips on transitioning your skincare and makeup routine. Plus, we’ll treat you to a delightful DIY fall aromatherapy body polish recipe that will leave your skin glowing and invigorated.

Why Your Skin Loves Fall:

  1. Gentler Sunshine: With the summer sun gradually fading, your skin gets a reprieve from intense UV rays. This means less risk of sunburn and sun damage. However, don’t slack on your sunscreen—UV protection is still essential year-round, so continue to use sunscreen.

  2. Hydration Heaven: Cooler temperatures mean lower humidity levels, which can lead to drier skin. Fall is the ideal time to introduce richer moisturizers into your routine to lock in moisture and keep your skin supple.

  3. Less Sweating: As the weather cools down, you’ll find yourself perspiring less, woo hoo! This reduction in sweat can help reduce the risk of clogged pores and breakouts.

  4. Skin Repair Mode: With less exposure to harsh environmental factors, your skin can focus on repairing itself. Fall is the perfect time to make an appointment with us to address any summer-induced skin damage.

Transitioning Your Routine:

  1. Switch to a slightly richer moisturizer: Opt for a more hydrating moisturizer to combat the dryness that comes with fall. Look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid and shea butter.

  2. Exfoliation is key: It helps remove dead skin cells, allowing your skin to absorb skincare products more effectively. Consider incorporating a gentle exfoliating product into your routine, like our ZO Skin Health Exfoliating Polish. It’s a game changer, and we always have it in stock. Feel free to inquire about it at your next appointment!

  3. Don’t overlook your lips: They deserve some TLC too. Fight chapped lips this season with a luxurious lip balm. Explore our range for hydration featuring clean beauty options.

  4. Hydrating masks: Pamper yourself with hydrating face masks to replenish your skin’s moisture levels. Try ones containing ingredients like honey, aloe vera, or oatmeal.

  5. One simple makeup tip our makeup artist Karina recommends is to get your makeup fall-ready is to incorporate warmer, autumnal tones into your eyeshadow and lipstick choices. Transition from the bright and light colors of summer to deeper, earthy shades like warm browns, rich burgundies, deep plums, and burnt oranges. These colors not only complement the season’s cozy vibes but also add depth and warmth to your overall look, making it perfect for the fall season.

DIY Fall Aromatherapy Body Polish Recipe:

Ingredients:

Instructions:

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the brown sugar and your choice of oil.

  2. Add the essential oil drops and mix until you achieve a consistent, grainy texture.

    paying special attention to areas prone to dryness like elbows and knees.
