Where to buy?
Although it might not feel a lot like it now in sunny Amsterdam, cold Fall and Winter days are just one step away. This means that our skincare routine has to go through the necessary transition. This being said, here are 5 useful tips for beautiful lips in Autumn:
1. Invest in a Lip Scrub (or create your very own natural sugar scrub)
Exfoliating is the key to beautiful skin. The same applies to your lips. Get rid of the dead skin layer and reveal your beautiful lips with a natural healthy glow. But remember, cold makes our skin extremely sensitive so if you fancy scrubs choose a gentle one that will help seal in moisture instead of unnecessarily drying your lips even more. You can also easily create your very own natural exfoliant with a pinch of caster sugar and a drop of olive (coconut) oil. In this way, you are exfoliating and nourishing your skin at the same time.
2. Hydrate your lips (moisturize lips- Sleeping Lip Mask)
Keeping your skin moisturized during the cold seasons is extremely important, especially for lips as they are directly exposed to all the unpleasant weather conditions during Autumn and Winter. And that is when the Sleeping Lip Mask comes to the rescue! It is a great option to nourish and deeply moisturize your lips to bring out this beautiful healthy glow and velvety softness.
3. Lip spa (nourishing oils, such as coconut, olive, almond, or essential oils- pure rose oil)
Don’t be afraid to use oils! As the other part of your body’s skin, your lips will also enjoy a nice aroma nourishing spa. Massage your lips for 5 minutes every day and, trust me, you will love the results. It also improves the blood circulations which helps the skin get all the necessary nutrients needed.
4. Protect your lips (nourishing lip balm as a primer)
A nourishing lip balm is a must during the cold fall and winter days. As the skin on your face, your lips also need protection from external influences. Using lip balm as a base of your basic lip makeup routine, will provide a moisturizing layer that will keep your lips hydrated, soft and beautiful throughout the day. Similarly to the lip scrub, you can always create your very own lip balm from natural nourishing ingredients (coconut oil, shea butter, bee wax, etc.). And this is where you can actually get creative and create delicious lip balms with yummy aromas.
5. Lip coat (always wear lipstick when going outside)
Always wear lipstick! The lipstick serves as a sealing layer that keeps your lips hydrated and protected from external influence (pollution or unpleasant weather conditions).
And talking about lip colors, let’s take the time to mention the lip color trends for this Fall:
- Ruby Red is the all-time favorite- bright red is always trendy and stylish.
- Burgundy Red- dark red tending towards brown or as some like to call it “wine” red. Rich and bold pigments are still on the list.
- Maroon Red- dark brownish red shade, called also “chestnut”. If are seeking for a bold but stylish look, this color is a great option.
- Raspberry Purple- bold and adventurous. This purple-pinkish shade will make you stand out.
- Deep Brown- what better says Fall than the deep rich brown color.
- Rich Nude shades (sparkle) - Sparkle, sparkle, sparkle! This Fall you can be in the spotlight and shine bright with sparkly nude shades enriched with nourishing ingredients. A natural look is always trendy.
- “Orange” Nude- it is not orange and it’s not nude. A perfect combination of warm fall colors to brighten up your look.
- Rusty Orange- a beautiful blend of orange, red and brown. If you had to represent Autumn with just one color, this would be the best choice!
- Silver grey- who said that Fall has to be boring? Be bold, be adventurous!
