Fall for Autumn with Our Three Transition Tips!

Posted: October 11, 2016 | Post Categories: Elmwood Spa Blog

If the chiller temperatures and earlier sunsets have not given it away, fall is in full swing! That’s right, gone are the days of eating gelato, lounging by the pool, and wearing white. Even though we’ve been lucky enough to enjoy warmer than usual weather until now, it’s time to swap swimsuits for shawls and switch to the autumn state of mind.

Aside from a wardrobe change, a new season also means that it’s time for new routines. We have three ways to make sure you’re all prepared for fall!

Clean out the Closet: To make space for all those warm and cozy knits, tuck your summer stuff away. Whether you slide them under your bed or store them in a spare room, we love the idea of vacuum-packing all those extra outfits that are no longer in season. Also, if you have fall items that you can part ways with, it’s a good time to donate. For a list of places that accept worn clothing, click here.

Put your Best Face Forward: Facials should be a regular part of your skin care routine, but even more so at the switch of seasons. So pencil in some face time because summer can leave our skin dehydrated from all the heat. Our Spa Care Experts™  suggest that we renew our skin with exfoliation, and prepare it with nutrients for the colder days ahead. Suitable for all skin types, we recommend our Guinot Vitamin C Double Peeling Facial (50 min, $145) to remove dead skin cells and leave the skin radiant and refreshed.

Break a Sweat:  Leaving summer behind can also mean becoming less active –fewer strolls in the park, and more curling up on the couch. But we can list many reasons why breaking a sweat should be a priority. Whether you sign up for a gym membership at our partner Hard Candy Fitness down the street, bust a move to YouTube workouts (Blogilates is always fun) or swing over for salsa at The Spanish Centre, pick something that you’ll stick with and can enjoy indoors. It’s easy to hide and hibernate as we get closer to winter, so start planning your new fitness routine early.

Whether you’ve always been a fan of fall or still need some convincing, we bet these tips will make the transition an easier one!
