Let’s welcome autumn
As we move from summer to autumn, we need to adjust our beauty routines to ensure we stay looking our best. Here are Kazia Pelka’s nine top tips
Kazia Pelka on how to tweak your beauty routine to match the time of year
Shed the skin
Time to kiss any lingering traces of tan goodbye and step into autumn a little paler and a lot more polished. Introduce a weekly body exfoliation with a rich, balm-like exfoliant. Simply apply to skin before you shower, using gentle circular motions, and work a little longer on elbows, knees and heels, before rinsing off. TRY REN Atlantic Kelp And Magnesium Exfoliating Body Scrub
(£26, Feel Unique).
Bump up nail colour
Bye bye brights – it’s time to introduce a grown-up shade to your fingertips. Full-on darks are better suited to winter, so now’s the time to opt for deep reds or shades of grey and taupe. A big trend this season is for negative space nail polish, where only part of the nail is painted with colour. Leave a space the same shape as the half moon on your nail – only make it a little bigger, then paint above it. Your nail will look like it’s been dipped in colour.
