Practical Fall Essentials – 10 Items You Need This Fall!
Today we are talking about some practical fall essentials you need this fall! As the weather gets cooler and daylight time gets shorter, we must change our routines, and our schedules, and manage our time differently! Our skin gets drier, our vitamin D drops, and we feel sluggish or sloppy. Although fall and winter are beautiful seasons, it is sometimes a bit more maintenance to stay healthy and stay disciplined. From skin, hair, style, and nutrition, here are 10 practical fall items you need this fall!
So let’s get into it!
1. Lounge Set
A cute matching lounge set is a must for fall! When the temperature drops in the early evening, it’s great to feel cozy and comfortable in a nice loungewear set.
A humidifier is a great addition to your place during the cooler months. Central or space heating tends to dry out the air as it heats your place. By using a humidifier, moisture is added back into the air which can help you with your sinuses, skin, hair, and sleep quality. You can even add essential oils to fragrance your room! Lavender, mint, eucalyptus, orange peel, rose, cinnamon, and vanilla are all great essential oils you can add to your humidifier.
3. Silk Pillowcase
Silk is an amazing material to sleep on as it’s soft, delicate, and cool. They are great for your skin and your hair. The material provides “slip” therefore avoiding split ends, wrinkles, and dryness.
4. Body Butter
A thick body butter or body cream is essential for cooler months. You’ll want to stay moisturized and soft while the weather gets colder to avoid rashes and other skin issues alike.
BONUS: a medicated lip balm is also an essential item for cold months to avoid those painful, dry, chapped lips.
Journaling is a great way to start or end your day during the fall months. As daylight saving time comes around, it may be harder to start and end your day in a good mood. Journaling can help set your intentions for the day, commemorate good memories, be cathartic, and relaxing!
6. Vitamin D
Vitamin D deficiency is very common in most people. Taking a supplement during the winter months is crucial because of the reduced sunlight that we all get! Vitamin D keeps your bones, muscles, and teeth healthy!
You can also make an effort to cook more vitamin D-rich foods such as:
7. Sunset Lamp
A sunset lamp can provide a nice ambiance as. The lamp can also help with your sleep-wake cycle if you find yourself more tired and sluggish through the colder months.
8. Updated Skin Care Routine
Updating your skincare routine for colder months is a game-changer. For colder months, it’s a great idea to reduce your use of clay masks and drying products and increase your oils, thick creams, and exfoliants. Don’t forget to wear sunscreen- it’s not just for the summertime!
9. Updated Make-Up Routine
Updating your foundation colour, primer, setting powder, and setting spray is also a great move for keeping your make-up on point as the weather and season change. For example, using your super matte summer foundation in colder temperatures doesn’t always fair well. Adjusting your makeup routine and your colour palette for fall can help you look more put-together and presentable.
10. Light Jacket
A perfect jacket for cool weather is a life-saver when entering fall. The mornings tend to be cold, the afternoons hot, and the evenings cool. A light jacket you can carry will be great in helping you avoid feeling uncomfortably cold or hot during the season transition.
