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. You can even wear cream-based sunblock which you couldn’t do during the summer.

It Is Too Freakin’ Hot

You would think I would be used to heat since I was born and raised in the South, but I can’t take it. I just can’t. If you read my questionnaire the other day, you would know that I like dressing myself in the cooler months. You can layer and be more creative with what you wear. When I went into the American Apparel store downtown a few weeks ago, I saw the perfect items for my fall wardrobe. I can see myself wearing these pieces daily. I plan on buying them in August.

The Two Pieces I Can’t Wait To Wear:

  • Unisex Bat Wing Hoody- $39.00

It comes in various fabrics and colors, but I am leaning toward the thicker Black/White Composition one. It looks like it would keep me warm for days.

  • Unisex Matte Faux Leather Hoodie-$60.00

There is something so bad ass about a leather jacket. It reminds me of a motorcycle gang or the boys from Justice. Either way this hoody looks hot, and I am going to rock it to the fullest.

P.S. I got a job working at the Urban League doing PR and things of that nature. I had my first day on Monday, and it was pretty good. School is also kicking my butt, but I will get over it. Wish me luck! I also haven’t been on Looklet in awhile. I had to ween myself off of it. BWAHAHAHAHAHAH!
