At the end of nearly every summer, it seems that autumn suddenly sneaks up on us. While preparing almost everything else (and everyone else in the house), more often than not we usually find ourselves struggling for time to sort out beauty essentials for the new season. As the weather cools and we approach autumn, our priorities shift from SPF protection to keeping the skin feel hydrated and bright in order to hold on to our summer glow for as long as possible.
We sat down with the SCOON team and talked through the beauty essentials & tips for this time of year. Here’s a summary of the clean beauty favourites we’re stocking up right now.
Fake tan - If you're like us and you're not ready to say goodbye to your tan just yet, Tan Organics is an easy and healthy way to keep a sun-kissed glow - plus it has a light citrus smell reminding you of those long summer days.
ILIA Limitless mascara - You won't believe this mascara is as clean and natural as it is. It has serious volume-building capability to rival that of any conventional mascara. Plus, it leaves your lashes looking soft, long and full without the toxic chemicals commonly used in traditional mascara; the formula is smooth and clump-free so it doesn’t smudge or flake.
Dr Alkaitis Ageless Elixer - This all-natural, pure oil is without a doubt the most gorgeous and luxurious treatment ever for all skintypes. The unique formulation contains a potent combination of anti-aging antioxidants, Ayurvedic herbs and high potency super foods that promote luminous skin, deeply nourished at the cellular level. While deeply moisturizing and stimulating cell renewal, the Elixir also protects your skin from environmental damage.
SMPL Boosting Serum - This oil is super moisturizing and full of antioxidants, giving a concentrated nutrition both day and night. It restores damaged skin, helps to reduce lines caused by dryness and prevents wrinkles creating a healthy glow and supple smooth skin overall.
SMPL Dry shampoo - Yes, amazing, clean, nontoxic dry shampoo exists! This one currently is getting a lot of use around the SCOON team: SMPL dry shampoo. Why we love it so much? Dry shampoo is instantly able to keep second-, third-, and even fourth-day hair fresh, while adding gorgeous texture. We think it’s one of the most brilliant styling products we know of. (Bonus: this one smells great!)
