Preparing Your Skin for Fall and Winter

Summer is almost over, and the days of lounging around under the sun will soon come to an end. Fall will be the start of the cold months which takes a lot of toll on our skin. Here are some tips to help prepare your skin for the new season.

Do Not Forget The Sunblock: Just because the sun isn’t out that much, it doesn’t mean that it isn’t damaging our skin. Due to this notion, people actually tend to damage the skin more during this season. An added bonus of wearing sunblock would be the extra moisture it gives your skin.

Clipless Curling Iron

If you’re not a hair guru like me, it gets frustrating when you just can’t let your hair fall the way you want to. Beachy waves are perfect for the summer but sometimes getting it perfect takes too much time and effort. I’ve been using a regular curling iron all my life and I never ever did my hair. I always asked someone else because I always got burnt. When I stumbled upon this video, I was amazed at how easy it looked and how great the curls looked like in the end. Clipless Curling Irons, like regular curling irons, comes in different sizes depending on how big you want your curls. Get an iron that’s coated in ceramic to protect your hair and leave it shiny.

*Jai Tip: I have a clipless curling iron. When buying one, make sure that it either comes with a heat protectant glove or you can get one from Sally’s for less than $5. Try the Conair CD117 Infiniti You Curl Tourmaline Ceramic Curling Iron, color may vary for tighter curls or the Cortex Curling Iron, Black, 1″ for bigger curls.
Clipless curling irons are available online and in most beauty stores. I know I want one right now.
