Our 5 Favorite Fall Beauty Products

Now that summer’s over and we’re officially indulging in PSLs and fuzzy sweaters, we need to switch up our beauty products to match the season. It’s time to admit our vacation tans have finally worn off, our skin is getting drier, and our hair is probably suffering from months of too much sun. Here are some of my favorite products for embracing autumn this year.

For your hair...

 

MOROCCAN GOLD SERIES TREATMENT MASK
This product is a miracle worker. If you have dry and damaged hair from too much chlorine and sun in the summertime or harsh cold come fall, use this product to rebind the proteins in each strand. After just one use, you’ll notice your hair looking healthy and smooth.

For your eyes...

 

MORPHE 35OM NATURE GLOW EYESHADOW PALETTE

This is my absolute favorite eyeshadow palette. The colors are very pigmented, so you won’t feel like you’re constantly layering and dropping color onto unwanted areas of your face (what a waste). All of the colors in this palette are great for fall, and it features both matte and shimmery shades for you to play around with! Plus, it’s affordable compared to similar palettes on the market.

For your face...

 

IT BYE BYE UNDER EYE

I don’t know about you, but I find myself looking *extra*  tired during the fall and winter months. Maybe it’s because I’ve lost my summer glow, or maybe my body is confused because the sun goes down earlier. Whatever it is, this IT concealer has been a lifesaver for hiding my dark circles (and any other unwanted spots). It’s also anti-aging, waterproof, and comes in 48 shades so you can find the perfect match for your skin tone.

Part of their Infinite Shine collection, this deep burgundy color is long-lasting and bold. It complements any fall look! And it matches perfectly with that glass of pinot in your hand.

For your lips...

 

MAC SATIN LIPSTICK - TWIG

A “soft muted brownish pink,” this shade is perfect for fall. It’s natural enough to wear every day, but pigmented enough to layer for a more dramatic effect. I love this shade because it goes well with every outfit and can be worn on any occasion.

What Are the Benefits of an Online Gym Membership?

That’s something I never expected to hear. Think about it: we join gyms and studios because of their equipment, instructors, space, community (and AC, of course). But who’s to say we can’t get all that—or at least most of it—with virtual and online classes, too? In this new wave of wellness, we’re all switching up our fitness routines as we switch up our everyday schedules and habits. It’s not just in-studio or at-home anymore. It’s in-studio, at-home, at the park, beach, parking lot, rooftop...virtual, hybrid, Instagram Live, online, on-demand, and so much more. As we’re adapting, adjusting, finding our groove, etc., online gym memberships enter the frayHas a nice ring to it, doesn’t it? 

So, why should we care about online gym memberships? 

There are tons of benefits to an online gym membership, especially right now.

Let’s break this down: 

1. Scheduling convenience 

A virtual/online gym fitness membership is a monthly subscription that gives you access to tons of live stream fitness classes you can take anywhere, from studios across the globe. These fitness studios offer tons of at-home workouts, group exercise, and one-on-one training sessions to choose from, no matter your exercise program or fitness level. With so many options, it’s easy to find one that fits your schedule. Whether you want to fit in a morning flow before work, combat that afternoon slump with some cardio, squeeze in some strength training before dinner, or wind down with an evening barre class, you can pick and choose classes to fit your fitness routine. 

2. Minimizing exposure to COVID-19 

And because they’re online, you can take these classes from the comfort of your home (or wherever you are), thus minimizing your exposure to COVID-19 and eliminating your commute to the gym or studio. By now, many of us have our designated “workout spot,” whether it’s an actual weight room, a quick scooch of the coffee table, or a grassy area in the backyard. Maybe you’re comfortable here... maybe you’ve even learned to love it.  

With an online gym membership, you can stay in your safe space/comfy workout spot. Or, you can go somewhere new (local park, beach spot, a different area of the house, you know). You can access these virtual, live stream fitness classes from any device, so you can prop up your phone, laptop, or tablet wherever you want to go, or roll out your mat in front of the big screen TV in your living room. 

3. Variety 

We all have our favorite, go-to workouts. But sometimes, it feels good to switch it up (especially right now). Working from home all day, many of us are craving some variety and excitement, and an online gym membership can definitely help with that. According to our recent poll about COVID’s effect on our fitness routines, 64% of you have tried new online workouts since the start of the pandemic—I know I have. Maybe it’s because trying new things is easier in the comfort of our homes, maybe we’re finally able to try some classes we normally can’t find locally, or maybe we’re all just bored out of our minds...I don’t know. But I’m excited about it.  

With an online gym membership, you can get that spice you’re looking for easily. Start out your Monday by hitting some HIIT, ease your sore muscles with some Restorative Yoga, and end the week with some dance cardio to pretend you’re at the club. The world is yours.

4. Working out without a commute 

My favorite part? No commute. There are literally no more excuses when it comes to skipping workouts. No traffic, no schedule conflicts, no fear of returning to the studio. You don’t even have to worry about packing a gym bag with a change of clothes and shower supplies or prepping a snack or protein shake to bring to work. Just shut your computer, throw on some leggings, and get to work. 

5. Community 

Community—the element of online fitness memberships we don’t often think of. When we go into studios, we understand the beauty of a fitness community. We’re greeted by our instructors, we chat with others in the class, and we all sweat together and encourage each other throughout. But working out at home is different... or is it?  

We can do workouts on our own at home all we want, but we’re definitely going to miss out on the community aspect we all know and love. But, with live stream classes, we can create a different kind of community. The beauty of it? It’s not just your neighbors anymore. Anyone with an online fitness membership can join these classes, regardless of where they’re located in relation to the studio, so you can be working out alongside people from all over the world—now that’s something I can get behind.
