Just because summer is coming to an end, does not mean you stop protecting your skin! Soaking up some sun at a fall festival or simply taking a walk outside can help you to receive an essential dose of Vitamin D, but you still need to take precautions. Follow these tips to take care of your skin this fall – and in every season:

  • DO regularly receive 15-20 minutes of midday sun exposure, exposing as much of the skin as possible while being careful not to burn.
  • DO wear sunscreen. Sunny, Cloudly, Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter – always! Wear sunscreen that is non-toxic and free of dyes, fragrance, and chemical irritants.  Tinted sunscreen is another product that protects your skin and which a touch of color.
  • DO wear a hat! The skin around your eyes and face is thinner than the rest of your body. Protect your skin by keeping your eyes shaded with a hat.
  • DON’T over expose your skin to the sun! Just because temperatures are lower, doesn’t mean you won’t burn or damage your skin. Too much sun speeds up your skin’s aging process and causes wrinkles, sun spots and damage. If you did soak up too much sun, Photofacials are a way to keep skin healthy and helps to remove sun spots or other pigmentation irregularities.
Have a fun and safe fall!

Wellness Wednesday: Fall Fitness Tips

iGoPink Blog, Nutrition & Recipes No Comments

Seriously, what’s not to love about fall? Pumpkin lattes are back, you can dig out your favorite sweaters, and sweet potatoes are finally in season. Best of all, the crisp temps make fall the perfect time to exercise outdoors: “The cool weather allows you to enjoy yourself without having to worry about being overheated or too cold,” says Terri Walsh, celebrity trainer and creator of the Active Resistance Training Method (A.R.T.). And that means you’re more likely to feel awesome during your workout, and maybe even log an extra mile or climb another trail.

But before you lace up and head outside, prepare for your outdoor adventure with Walsh’s fall weather workout tips:

Wear Layers
It may feel slightly nippy at first, but the weather has a rep for changing on a moment’s notice. Dress in layers that you can easily remove if your body starts to heat up—or put back on if you get cold, says Walsh.

Stay Hydrated
Many people forget to drink enough fluids during fall workouts because it’s not super hot, says Walsh. Not good. Keep drinking as normal to avoid dehydration. While it’s good to carry water, you can add some flavor with a bit of fruit juice to get even more nutrients.

Pack Snacks
Don’t disrupt your outing for a food pit stop. If you’ll be out most of the day hiking or biking, Walsh recommends bringing a small backpack with nuts or fruit stashed inside. No matter where you are, at least you have a constant source of fuel.

And if you think running is the only outdoor exercise to try, it’s time to get creative! If you’re near some branches and a log, you’ll definitely want to try this off-the-beaten-trail circuit workout. But if a park is your only outdoor fitness center, find a jungle gym and do these fun exercises on the playground. The kids in line for the monkey bars can wait their turn.
