Fall is Here – Now for Self Care
The arrival of fall calls for an endless stream of long-awaited and exciting changes. From rocking a new wardrobe to sipping our favorite hot drinks as we watch the leaves turn red, there are more things to look forward to than we can count. We certainly dreamed of the chillier weather during those scorching summer days, and now it’s finally here!
The shift into fall isn’t only reflected in the beautiful foliage and our best jackets – it’s also the perfect time for a new self-care routine. While spring and summer are often times during which we want to take it easy and possibly minimize our use of products (gotta keep that hair pool-ready!), fall is the perfect opportunity to switch up our look and our everyday regimen.
Whether you are going to miss your bikinis or not, embracing this change and incorporating it into your everyday self-care ritual can make you feel more in tune with your environment. Ultimately, actively welcoming the new season can have a significant, uplifting impact on things like well-being, productivity, and overall happiness. Here are some of our favorite ways to get fall-ready:
1. Experiment with a Darker Hair Color
A darker hair color for fall is a popular choice, as it gets you in the right headspace to take on pumpkin season while fitting right in with the theme. While going darker in the colder, drier months is a great aesthetic choice, it requires some specific care. Don’t worry, you can still have your dream hair without sacrificing the health of your beautiful locks!
There are great and easy ways to approach haircare, ensuring the best color and preventing your hair from becoming fragile and damaged in the process.
For many people, the thought of going through the hair-dyeing process at home can be overwhelming, and for good reason. Bad experiences relating to burning and itching sensations on the scalp, for example, are enough to eliminate any desire to try to do it yourself. On top of that, limited knowledge on the right way to balance bleach and color can make successfully dyeing your hair at home feel like an unrealistic goal. But don’t give up just yet!
Formulated to completely eliminate these issues and concerns, pH Plex works to take care of all of the headache-inducing parts of this process for you. The hair treatment comes in pre-measured sachets, ready with the right amount of product for your hair treatment. Beyond protecting your hair during your fall transformation, pH Plex also helps to repair and stabilize your strands. And – get this – it’s an affordable way to do it, too!
Whatever look you decide to go for, pH Plex helps you get there in an easy, healthy, and effective way.
2. Spice Up Your Morning Coffee!
For many of us, making our coffee in the morning is an important step in our routine. Besides the usual benefits (read: caffeine!) of our staple coffees or teas, the simple act of taking the time to make a delicious beverage can give us a grounding and quiet moment of peace at the start of the day.
Fall drinks are popular all over the country, but you don’t have to have a pumpkin spice latte every day to get into the right mood for fall. Making small changes to your morning latte, for example, can be a subtle yet fun way to ease into the new season.
If you usually go for iced drinks, maybe try a hot latte with some cinnamon. If that’s not your style, browse your local grocery store for different syrups to give your coffee or tea an extra kick.
Your morning beverage can also be a great opportunity to integrate some dietary aspects of your beauty routine! If you would like, add powder supplements and vitamins into your coffee for a quick and easy way to work towards a healthy complexion. Checking multiple self-care boxes at once? We are all for it.
Whatever your drink of choice, it’s about making sure to enjoy yourself! Little shifts can go a long way into making us excited for what’s to come.
Having exercise as a part of your routine is always great, but we have to admit that working out in the summer and in the fall are two entirely different experiences. If you love going outside for your daily physical activity, autumn is your time to thrive!
Personally, we find there to be something particularly refreshing about brisk runs or walks during the fall. The colder air is an opportunity to reset and clear your head, all while you are actively working to care for both your physical and mental health. It’s a win-win!
Since you are far less likely to be distracted by the relentless heat, you might even get a few extra steps in. Lather on your sunscreen and get going!
4. Invest in Fall Products
Our skin and our hair are always adapting to our different environments, and we often have the weather to thank for that. While it might not be at the top of our minds, it’s likely that we will see our bodies change as the weather does. By switching out some of our everyday products to target skin and hair conditions brought about by the colder air, we are helping our bodies adjust more easily to the shift.
It’s no secret that this time of year makes our skin drier and our hair more prone to breakage. Taking preventative steps with pH Plex allows you to keep your hair in great shape all year round. If you are already experiencing some damage – don’t worry! pH Plex works to both protect and repair your hair – whether it’s color-treated or not.
Whatever your current hair status, pH Plex will be there to take you to the next level. The fall season brings about a fresh new start and tons of opportunities to show yourself the love and care we know you deserve – it’s time for you to Feel Like Your Best Self!
