Stay Refreshed This Fall Season


Here at Simply Stylist, there are few things we love more than the chilly fall season. Whether it's the abundance of puffy coats, the beautiful sight that is the first snowfall, or the smell of lit fireplaces that make us swoon over this time of year, we are all about hanging onto every aspect this season has to offer! One of our favorite parts is that we get to stash our bikinis and pull our warm, comfy clothes out of the back of our closet for their annual 5 months of fame. Let’s be real: Any season that includes bundling up in a large jacket while devouring a Pumpkin Spice Latte is fine by us!

There is nothing better than the cooling weather because, well, there are tons of excuses that allow for us to (slightly) slack off on our daily routines and not feel as bad about it as we do in the summer — Like the fact that you can hide your not-so-shaven legs under your many layers of clothes (It’s OK ladies, we are all guilty of it). Or that the windy weather results in you snoozing your alarm longer than usual, instead of waking up to style your hair for the day (It’s just going to get messed up anyway, right?) Still, just because your bulky clothes cover up your less-than-frequent fall gym schedule, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do everything in your power to stay as refreshed as possible this season! Here are 4 simple tips that will leave you feeling rejuvenated, recharged, and at your best this Fall without going too far out of your way to do so!

Start prepping your skin now! Let’s fast forward to March — the weather is beginning to warm up, which means that it is finally acceptable to start wearing your favorite spring dresses. You plan your outfit for the next day only to realize that your legs have been hiding under layers and layers of clothes for the past few months. They’re pale, they’re dry, and you might as well say ‘bye-bye’ to those dresses until you get this situation under control.

Well, this doesn’t have to happen to you! This fall, keep your skin at its best with a thorough moisturizing routine! Use an advanced formula, like the Intensive Care Advanced Relief Healing Serum by Vaseline, to moisturize, heal, and calm your skin through the chilly fall weather. Trust us, healthy skin = a happy you!

A manicure can go a long way. It’s time for a nail-tervention! We are all guilty of not putting as much of an effort into our cuticles during the fall season. It’s not that we don’t care as much, it’s just that we would much rather binge watch Netflix in front of a warm fire than take on the chilly air and head to the local nail salon. But, we are here to tell you that your nails need seasonal care, too!

Just because your summer beach days went into hibernation for the winter, doesn’t mean your polished nails have to! The Sally Hansen’s Complete Salon Manicure line makes do-it-yourself manicures a breeze! Each color (our favorites are Poof! Be-Gonia and In Full Blue-m) has a formula that includes 7 nail benefits in one — A Base Coat, Strengthener, Growth Treatment, Color, Top Coat, Chip-Resistant, and Gel Shine — and can be topped off with the 3D Gel Shine Top Coat to give the look an extra dose of shine. The simplicity of keeping your nails in check will go a long way in helping you look more put together!

Give your face the attention it deserves. Fall marks the beginning of cool temperatures, but we can’t forget about the warm weather just yet. As much as we love basking in the summer sun, the harsh rays can greatly hurt the health of your skin! Not only does the sun increase your chances of getting wrinkles somewhere down the line, but it also extracts beneficial nutrients from your face.

Use this fall season to repair any damage! If you’re not sure where to start, try the Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant by Paula’s Choice. This leave-on formula works to treat breakouts, reduce the look of fine lines, and improve the appearance of your face, which will give you that natural glow you’ve been looking for!

Don’t let the holidays get you down! The holiday season equals busier schedules, and busier schedules equal more stress! On top of everything, now you have to worry about what to get your brother, sister, and parents without putting a huge hole in the bottom of your wallet. Well, we are here to tell you that no matter how much you stress about the holiday season, it will come and go just as it does every year. So why put the extra burden on yourself by stressing over every little detail?

Sure, telling yourself not to stress out is easier said than done. If you’re predicting a stressful holiday season, then you should give yourself one less thing to worry about: Your personal hygiene. There’s always Clinical Strength Deodorant by Secret, which is specifically designed to combat even the worst cases of stress sweat. That way, when you’re running to Target for a last minute, late night shopping trip, you’ll be confident knowing you will look (and smell) refreshed even after the longest of days!
