Fall Must Haves

The air becomes drier, the days grow shorter and the leaves begin to change colours. You may notice a change in your skin and your hair as fall settles in. Although I love the beautiful tones autumn brings to the landscape, it is a season of transition and it can deprive your skin from needed moisture. Since I already live in a dry area, I always find that the temperature dropping affects my face, my body and my hair the most. That's because when the air outside is cold and dry, the water in your skin evaporates more quickly which makes you skin feel dry and tight, and makes it look flaky. Make time to prepare for the months of cold winter weather ahead. You can’t hide a skin or hair that needs repair!




OLE HENRIKSEN Walnut Complexion Scrub

Exfoliating twice a week with this face scrub will help reveal smooth skin and improve its texture. The smells alone is amazing! The Walnut Scrub is oil free and non-irritating making it suitable for all skin types.  It contains natural ingredients such as Aloe Vera, Chamomile and Comfrey extract to soothe, moisture and refresh your skin. The best way to treat blemishes and fade the dark marks on your skin is to exfoliate. It encourages new skin tissue to grow, increases blood circulation and drains toxins from the skin.


LA ROCHE-POSAY Effaclar K Daily Renovating Acne Treatment

LOVE this product. I use it morning and night right after cleansing with the Gentle Foaming Gel. I apply Effaclar K before moisturizing. It is very gentle,  and I have never had redness, peeling or itching for the past 3 years of using this treatment. It also prevents breakouts, gradually transform skin's texture and pores are refined with daily use. Can't go without this!

For targeted spot treatment, I've recently started to use Effaclar A.I.  to eliminate imperfections. It really reduces the inflammation and redness but it tends to leave the treated areas dry. I would also recommend Effaclar Duo which is more of an all over preventative treatment. It contains four active ingredients to help fight skin imperfections. Niacinamide and Piroctone Olamine are responsible for purifying the skin and protecting the skin against future breakouts developing and the LHA/Linoleic Acid combination help to eliminate the dead skin cells which are responsible for sebum-clogged pores. La Roche-Posay's thermal spring water is also a key ingredient, which acts as an anti-irritant and has soothing properties. 


THE BODY SHOP Vitamin C Daily Moisturizer with SPF

Fight the dullness with Vitamin C Daily Moisturizer. This moisturizer will hydrate and enhance your skin's natural glow while also protecting it from UV rays (SPF 30). The texture works as a great primer as it preps your skin for the foundation application by filling in fine lines and smoothing pores. The product works amazing under make-up and it keeps it looking fresh all day.





HEMPZ Triple Moisture Whipped Body Crème

Give your body the love it needs. Light, yet super moist. Not oily or heavy on the skin. After a few days of using it, your skin feels wonderful! Also works wonders on troubled skin as HEMPZ uses all natural ingredients. The lotion itself is nice and thick plus the smell is unbelievably yummy! The fragrance is Enchanted Grapefruit & Sparkling Peach.  

Tip: If you want to get rid of your calluses, apply this lotion as much as needed (also comes in a travel size) and your hands will be smooth again!




MOROCCANOIL Intense Hydrating Mask

My go- to product to keep my hair healthy. I love the rich, creamy texture of MOROCCANOIL Intense Hydrating Mask. It will treat your hair with plenty of moisture and protein, adding elasticity and shine. Just after one use, the mask gave my hair the much needed hydration, and shine. I use heat at least once every two weeks. For better results, I leave it on for 30 minutes or longer. Adding heat will open up the cuticle and allow the conditioner to deeply penetrate. Allow the deep conditioner to stay on for at least 15 minutes.


NATIVA Coconut Oil

If you haven't tried coconut oil, you are missing out! It has natural antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. Coconut oil is an excellent moisturizer, it can penetrate hair better than other oils. There is nothing more versatile than coconut oil: use it as shaving cream, deep-conditioner, make-up remover, face and body moisturizer, and message oil. All you need is one thing: Raw and organic virgin coconut oil.
