As boisterous summer winds down, so do your days of beach leisure and recreational roaming. The reduction of daylight and arrival of brisk weather shouldn’t get you down, as you can use autumn to its full advantage.
This season opens the door for new splurges and luxuries, which will make you embrace and appreciate the shift in seasons. Treat yourself with better beauty products and practices, splendid seasonal apparel, high-grade technology, an interior refresh and a little extra sparkle. Here is a list of splurges that are absolutely worth making during the autumn season.
Protective Beauty Products
As the colder weather breezes in, make sure your skin is protected from any weather damage. The key is hydration! Utilise products that will keep your collagen intact and create a barrier between your epidermis and the elements. Splurge on a beauty brand that boasts some of the best skin revitalising products, like Zoe Foster’s Go-To. This skin care line includes an outstanding oil that will prevent dry skin. Exceptionoil contains natural oils and butters that will help you remedy rough patches and nourish your skin.
Make an Autumn Statement
Autumn apparel lets you mix and match with layers and a multitude of textures. Splurge on the season’s finest, including a statement coat. Choose a hue that matches your fall wardrobe and seek out eye-catching patterns. And who says floral patterns are only for the spring and summer? Designers, like Ted Baker and MSGM, are all about moody and dark florals that will give you a fun, yet refined look.
New tech is unveiled at this time of year, which helps reduce the cost of the previous generation of gadgets. With the arrival of the iPhone 7, the 6s model will drop in price and allow you the upgrade you’ve lusted for. The iPhone 6s’ features aren’t far behind the 7, so you won’t miss out on the essential capabilities. Give your new phone a little flash, with a personalised phone case that will both protect and show off your tech accessory.
Take a day for yourself in an oasis that lets you escape the outdoor chill. Visit a spa for services that will gear you up for the winter season. Give your body a beautiful glow with a full body scrub and a moisture-retaining wrap session. Your face will need recovery from all the sun exposure, and now is the perfect time for a revitalising facial. A recommended treatment is a skin lift with Nuface microcurrent machines and a moisture mask that contains high levels of vitamin C. This service will combat any sun damage and improve skin tone.
Dress up your home with the season’s finest. Change your home accessories for new additions that provide a cozy and rich feeling. Go for darker colours that are warm, which will make your home feel inviting, luxurious and snug. Take advantage of decor inspired by autumn’s natural wonders. Collect a couple of pumpkins from the farmers market for a fun, interior finish. Luckily, pumpkins, squash and gourds come in a variety of colours, shapes and sizes — you can choose the varieties that best suit the personality and scheme of your home. You can also find a more glamorous variety of pumpkin from home decor stores, like Pottery Barn. These sparkled and painted sculptures won’t go bad and will add an air of autumnal glitz.
