It is fall again. The leaves are falling and the humidity is dropping. Soon winter will be upon us and we all know what that means. As the temperature drops lower and lower, our skin scrambles to adjust to the dryness. I get the total disappointment of having a dry skin. We all get it once in a while especially during the winter where there is barely enough humidity in the air and it all feels so ashy and cold. Our skin reacts to these conditions as it is as expected. But who says that nothing can be done about it?

You can turn things around and transform that dryness into a glorious glow. There are quite a number of excellent ways to keep your skin fresh with that youthful grace all day long. And I’m not talking about synthetic products that may or may not break the bank. Nah. I’m talking about natural tips – easy, accessible methods that you can try for yourself. I will be sharing some of them with you below. Step into fall with some simple things that you can add to your skincare routine.

Natural Masks

Masks are excellent ways to rejuvenate the skin’s pores and restore their freshness. However, dermatologists confirm that it is preferably advisable to opt for masks composed of natural organic ingredients such as fruits, plant extracts and essential vitamins. These ingredients help brighten your skin regardless of the time of the year. They are great for moisture and they leave your skin feeling supple and clog-free.

Essential Oils

Coconut oil is a good go-to for glowing skin. It honestly works like magic and it works for every kind of skin type – from dry to oily. Natural oils such as carrot seed oil, turmeric, lemongrass, lavender and frankincense are among the best oils to make your skin glow. The benefits of these oils seem endless, from suppressing wrinkles, reducing fine lines, to soothing the skin and calming inflammation. Essential oils are indeed a blessing to the skin.

Crystal Face Rollers

Crystal Face Rollers are stones that are basically used for massaging the surface of the skin. They help releasing stresses and tension that might have been built up under the skin. It’s believed that these rollers can help combat wrinkles, fine lines and other signs of aging. You can combine these face rollers with face serum. Rolling one of these across the face after applying a face serum opens up the skin pores.

Beauty Sleep

Yes, you read that right! Sleep!
Life is not so perfect and sometimes stress affects our productivity. When that happens, we tend to forget to relax our mind, body and soul. Did you know getting enough sleep can help offset the toll that stress takes on our body? As ordinary as it seems, sleeping up to eight hours a day can reduce stress and leave your skin feeling healthier. It is basically the cheapest way possible to help your skin, and the least regarded. It’ll also help your mind radiate, too.

Bonus points for thoroughly removing your makeup before going to bed at night. Let that skin breathe, girl!

Drink Healthy

I kind of hibernate in the winter. I spend most of my time indoors drinking my green tea and taking care of my skin and my mind. During fall, I drink plenty of water to prevent the skin from looking flaky and dull. Water flushes the body and takes out the toxins. Staying hydrated is a good way to maintain soft and glowing skin. Drink plenty of coconut water, green tea, carrot juice and almond milk for the best results.

You should note that these tips can be practiced all year round. Try working them into your beauty routine to keep that natural glow going from season to season.

Celebs and music icons often flourish in radiant, goddess-length locks one day, and with a flick of their strands, an adorable pixie cut the next. Then, their dynamite hair sprouts a magical six inches days later and turns into a wild color during the process. Either celebrities are wizards, or they’re choosing to revel in the diversity of wigs.

For many years, celebrities have housed myriads of hairstyles in their expansive closets. Let’s explore some of the stars embracing the beauty, versatility and stylish advantages of wigs.

If you’ve been following CysterWigs for a while, it’s no secret that we love Dolly! Parton, who started performing professionally at age 10, started wearing wigs in 1973. She once said, “I used to try to keep my own hair teased as big as I like it, and having the bleach and all of that, it just broke off. I thought, ‘Why am I going through all that? Why don’t I just wear wigs? That way, I never have a bad hair day! I have a big hair day, but not a bad hair day.” We totally hear you, DP!

Diana Ross

There’s not many in the world more famous for transformative hairstyles than Queen Ross. Diana took full creative advantage of wigs during her time with The Supremes and on, and had a unique, noteworthy new look nearly every day. She’s never been afraid of volume or going for over the top styles like the huge flower garden wig that she wore in 1969. When it comes to full on glamour, Ms. Ross is the boss.

Christina Aguilera

The late 90s “Genie in a Bottle” sensation began experimenting with wigs in the early 2000’s when her hair started accruing extensive damage from extensions and bleaching. Her introduction into the wig world proved to be a catalyst for many different styles, and she continues to wear them through all aspects of her continuing career.

Cher

From her Native American headdress to her strawberry red locks, Cher could write the book on wig fashion. As her headwear is often the most noticeable part of any of her ensembles, she has a long history of keeping things interesting with whimsical, unconventional, and cutting-edge styles.

Keira Knightley

Keira tapped into the wig world in 2011 when she started to toy with different locks due to the movie industry requiring her to dye, bleach, and lop off her hair, causing the star hair loss and extensive damage. Turning to wigs solved Keira’s scorched-hair dilemmas, and she now is an avid proponent of wig-wearing.

Katy Perry

Especially memorable for her dazzling hair as a judge of American Idol—donning everything from a jet black Snow White do’ to a Marilyn Monroe bob (and nearly everything in between)—the pop star keeps the world of hair zesty and entertaining, continually showcasing the colors of her vibrant personality.

Sia

One of the more modern influences on the music spectrum, Sia has transported wig-wearing to a new echelon with face-covering, eccentric wigs. Sia chooses to hide her face because of the criticism modern-day celebrities face in the wake of social sharing platforms, and her collection of wigs help her integrate her beliefs, personality, and individual style into a wearable accessory.

Take your hand (excluding your thumb) with your fingers together and press them up against where your eyebrows are / should be.

Wherever the top of your hand is, that is generally where you should guide the measuring tape.
