Are you tired of the changing seasons and the alternating wet days, cool and hot weather, and the dry hair and skin, and layering of clothes that comes with them? The constantly changing temperature during fall and winter means that it’s important for you to change your beauty routine, too. People realize their skin and hair are drier during the cold winter months, but they may not know that their entire body needs special attention this time of year. We’ve got the perfect beauty expert to help!

WHAT CAN A PERSON DO FOR DRY SKIN?
As we start to move indoors for cooler weather, our skin and hair really begin to dry out from the heat. That’s why if you want great skin, have a great humidifier. I personally like the Dyson Humidifier that helps supports hydrated skin all year round while doubling up as a fan to keep you cool in warmer months. The water inside passes over an ultraviolent light, twice, ensuring every drop is 99.9% bacteria-free and Dyson’s Air Multiplier™ Technology ensures that all of the hygienic mist is distributed evenly through the room. Humidifiers can help your skin retain its natural moisture, and helps to soothe dry eyes, itchy skin and dry hands. You’ll be amazed at was a humidifier can do for your skin and hair. Also, one really cool feature is the remote control. It allows for precise control in setting temps, choosing desired airflow and it has sleep time settings. It’s available at Dyson.com and selected retailers for just under $500.

WHAT CAN WE DO FOR DRY HAIR?
A humidifier can fix part of the problem, but as the air gets colder and dryer this fall season, our scalps can lose moisture much like the rest of our skin, so many of us will experience a dry or itchy scalp. Fortunately, a great brand that has been around for many years has something new, Head & Shoulders Instant Relief. It improves the scalp’s resilience to moisture loss, instantly relieving scalp issues. If you’re experiencing dry scalp and seeing flakes this fall, shampoo and condition your hair with Head & Shoulders Instant Relief. The formula is infused with peppermint that instantly cools and refreshes the scalp to provide relief from dandruff symptoms. It was recently voted an Allure Best of Beauty Award winner.

BEAUTY SECRETS FOR FALL
This will help you all year round! Although the temperature dropped, the sun is still stronger than ever. Research shows that 90% of sun damage comes from everyday exposure without protection. That’s why wearing sunscreen on a daily basis is so important, and it’s easier than you think thanks to my favorite product, La Roche-Posay Anthelios AOX. It’s the first EVER daily antioxidant serum with SPF 50. I love this because it visibly improves fine lines and dark spots, and the texture is so smooth that there’s no layering necessary, so you can put this on and walk right out the door. This multi-functional serum is made from an exclusive blend of antioxidants and UVA/UVB protection, and is paraben-free/dermatologist tested. Sold at drugstores and Target for $42.50. La Roche-Posay offers a unique range of daily skincare and I suggest you check out their other new products; Pigmentclar Eyes, Cicaplast and Effaclar BB Blur.

TIPS FOR AVOIDING GAINING EXTRA WEIGHT DURING THE FALL AND HOLIDAY SEASON
I believe the thing to keep in mind is not to focus on dieting but changing your lifestyle by incorporating structure and portion control. The challenge that most people face is that this can seem overwhelming. That’s why I think Jenny Craig is such a great resource. Members work with a consultant on a one-on-one basis in order to take the guesswork out of losing weight and learning how to keep it off. They will teach you about portion control, proper nutrition and adding physical activity into your life so it’s about a lifestyle change and not a diet. Their approach is simple, no counting, no tracking, no worrying and they even have nearly 100 nutritionally-balanced and portioned food options including comfort food favorites like the Jenny Craig Cheese Curls and even a Chocolate Lava Cake!
