The transition from summer to fall can be a juggling act, and this year it comes with a little extra uncertainty! This month, we’re setting our minds to getting #BacktoBalance, so we’ve picked these September must-haves to help you de-stress and manage your day-to-day load a little easier.
The confidence to put your best face forward.
Transitions to office and school settings means more time spent wearing masks. If half your face is going to be covered all day, it’s important to simplify—but not skimp—on your skincare routine. Our customized Fresh Start cleanser and moisturizer set will help you streamline your morning routine and rebalance your skin whether you’re experiencing extra oiliness or preparing for drier skin as the weather cools down.
An app that does it all.
If your work-life balance is a little blurry, Todoist is the organizing app you need in your life. Use it to create to-do lists, collaborate on projects, track your productivity and so much more. Todoist can be integrated with your email, calendar, Alexa and other tools to help you conveniently plan and organize your time.
Healthy meals made simple.
Maybe you want to eat healthier but you’re short on time (or patience) when it comes to home cooking. Enter Hungryroot. This hybrid meal kit/grocery delivery service makes cooking and eating healthy, balanced meals a breeze. Each week, you can choose your own ingredients or pick quick and easy recipes that are ready in 20 minutes or less. From plant-based pastas and proteins to lean meats, fresh veggies and even healthy sweets (hello, black bean brownie batter!), you can customize your plan to cover all your daily meals and snacks or just fill in the gaps on your busiest days.
Something easy on the eyes.
Waterproof mascara isn’t just for summertime! When you’re running from work to workouts to at-home happy hour, you want makeup that stays put. That’s exactly why we created our Making Waves Waterproof Mascara. Shea butter and vitamin E keep your lashes glossy and moisturized, while the waterproof formula stays in place until you take it off! Attending a Zoom or micro-wedding this fall? Whether you’re in person or on screen, Making Waves will make sure you’re only crying happy (and streak-free) tears.
A good night’s sleep.
The National Sleep Foundation recommends that most adults get between 7 and 9 hours of sleep a night. Adjusting to a new routine can make this difficult, especially if you’re getting up earlier for a morning commute instead of rolling out of bed to work from the living room. So how can you get your mind and body to relax when your head hits the pillow? We recommend a good neutral noise machine like the Yogasleep Dohm. This two-speed fan-based machine helps you drift peacefully into dreamland with the simple sound of moving air.
