MY AUTUMN BEAUTY MUST HAVES

Ange blog post 17 apr.jpg

Autumn has hit in Australia and I’m all about seasonal everything right now.  It’s my obsession.  

From getting way too into Hygge (I’m going to do a live about this soon… watch this space), to not just eating seasonally but exercising and even adjusting my self care ritual to suit the fresh season.  I’m even getting more and more excited about the spiritual meaning of Autumn.    

Like I said, obsession.  

And because I love you, I want to share what I’m loving, learning and living.  

But let's start with my revitalised beauty cabinet?  

 

First up, the face!  

When the weather changes, my skin reacts!  I can get redness on my chin, dry skin around my nose and the seasonal adjustments can sometimes result in a flare up of dermatitis that I used to get as a teen and sometimes even blemishes!  

I’ve said this before, exfoliate, exfoliate, EXFOLIATE!  I used to think that scrubbing would make my skin more dry but it actually does the opposite.  

I’ve been using this Eco by Sonya Driver Skin Compost Exfoliant and I’m loving it!  My skin feels so soft after using it! 

And of course you can’t forget the body.  I love to dry body brush in the mornings but I know that as it gets colder, I get lazier and want to jump straight into a warm shower.  So I’ve got this Divine Company Exfoliating Body Scrub sitting in my shower, ready to rock!

And I’m from the Gold Coast so it’s clear and obvious that I love a tan.  And I also love keeping my skin young so it’s mostly a fake bake.  My fave one, right here!

And to keep that freshly scrubbed skin feeling nice and hydrated, I’m 100% sure you will fall in love with this moisturiser like I did.  There are only 5 or 6 ingredients and it’s so luscious!  Plus, all the celebrities use it so it must work, right?

Then in order to keep moving towards naturally ageless (while ageing gracefully at the same time, such a juggle!) we know we need to keep our insides doing the things, right?  I drink this Beauty Chef Inner Beauty Boost daily.  It’s yummy and it’s collagen boosting, you can’t lose! 

 

And look, this isn’t really a beauty must have, but it’s a wellbeing must have and while I’m at it - TONGUE SCRAPING!  If you’re not doing it, you must start.  Not only does it give your mouth a whole new level of clean but I believe it also removes small particles of food from the pores of your tongue, so your no longer having your body ‘taste’ these foods and cravings can decrease dramatically. Just try it for 30 days!

Another beauty must have is one I was gifted in an event goodie bag. This is my sole saviour.  Literally, if cracked heels aren’t something you’re digging, lather this stuffon, cover in socks and wake up in the morning with the most divine, baby smooth soles.  I’m sure it’s got other uses but it’s usually seen on the base of my big feet!

And I’m going to finish off by spilling the secret.  Sometimes I get asked how I get my hair the way I do… This is exactly what I use and I promise that if you want it, I’ll do a mini tutorial on how I use it.  So go ahead and get yourself one and in a few weeks, we’ll get you some beach waves for days.  Sound good?  

Also - this brush is amazing! 

 

I hope this is a helpful step towards your Autumn beauty rituals.  I would LOVE to know what you use and love that keeps you feeling nurtured when the temperature drops?  Tell me in the comments below!
