If you’re ready to step out in style this fall, you’ll want one of the year’s hottest foot wear trends, the riding boot. Why are these boots such big news in the fashion world? Not only are they easy on they eyes, but they’re comfortable to boot. Confused about what to wear them with? Here’s how to wear those ultra comfortable and versatile riding boots.

Wear them with skinny pants.

The most basic, but still sleek and sexy way to wear riding boots is to slide them on over slim jeans in dark denim, or a pair of riding pants with a fall turtleneck or oxford shirt and one of the season’s other “must have” accessories, a thin belt. This look is appropriate for almost any casual outdoor function. Not only will you look chic and fashionable but your feet won’t feel the pinch. The flat heel on riding boots makes them one of the most comfy boots of all.

Wear them with dresses.

 Riding boots can add a whole new dimension to your favorite dress. While you can wear riding boots with a variety of dress types, keep the hem of the dress above the top of the boot, otherwise the look will be formless and unflattering. Try pairing riding boots with a shorter, wrap-around shirt dress for classic look. If you’re in great shape, wear riding boots with a shorter, form fitting knit dress and tights that match your boots. Try layering dresses by placing a sleeveless dress over a long sleeved dress, add a belt and a pair of riding boots for a super chic look. Layering is another key fall fashion trend.

Wear them with skirts

 Riding boots look chic and casual teamed with a skirt and matching tights. Generally shorter skirts look best with riding boots. Be sure you’re wearing tights that match your boots to avoid cutting the line of the outfit as well as giving the appearance of being shorter than you are. One fun idea is to wear riding boots with a saucy, pleated skirt and turtleneck. Hang an oversized handbag from your shoulder and you can welcome fall in style.

 When selecting riding boots choose a pair that fits snuggly against your leg. Riding boots are meant to be sleek and form fitting. They’re a forgiving look if your calves are somewhat less than perfect as they cover them in style. Don’t forget about wearing riding boots with leather and suede jackets for an ultra cool fall fashion look. If you can only choose a single pair of riding boots to add to your wardrobe, you can’t go wrong with dark brown or basic black. Pick up some matching tights and you have instant fall versatility. Have fun exploring the world in your riding boots this fall!

Why Your Lifestyle Needs Proper Skin Care

Your skin is the first line of defense against disease and infection as it helps to protect your body from all the contaminants we come across each day, and gives protection against the ultraviolet rays. As useful as the skin is to us, it is also the first organ that shows signs of aging. While we might have lived without things like wrinkle creams or moisturizers when we were younger and more resilient, as we age some degree of skin care is inevitable. Keeping your skin healthy should be the most important part of your beauty routine.

Skincare Dos

Wear sunscreen

As much as everyone loves to feel the sun on their skin, it’s good to protect yourself from the direct rays of the sun. UV rays can cause wrinkles and skin cancer, so apply sunscreen whenever you are going to be in the sun, even if only for a little while. Skin around the face, chest, neck and hands, are the most sensitive to UV rays and yet these are always exposed, so make sure to always apply sunscreen to these areas.

Eat healthy foods

Vegetables and fruits are packed full of antioxidants which are chemical compounds that cam help in breaking down cancer-causing free radicals in the body. Free radicals also cause cell damage to the skin. Include colourful vegetables and fruits in every meal for healthy and glowing skin. Also take a lot of vitamins C, E, A and beta carotene.

Treat your skin gently

Contrary to some recent news, scrubbing the skin or exfoliating too often is not good for your skin. Be very gentle when massaging cleanser into your face. Do not rub but go in upward circular motions until whatever you are using is properly absorbed. The skin loses its elasticity as you grow older, so avoid rubbing or pulling it to prevent sagging.

Exfoliate only to remove dead skin cells

The skin renews itself by generating new cells and shedding the old one at the surface so exfoliation helps to remove the dead skin cells. But if you have dry skin, ensure that you do not over-exfoliate because it may become flaky and unattractive. Exfoliating once or twice a week is okay for people with dry skin. People with oily and normal skin however, can exfoliate more frequently; up to 3 or 4 times per week. Make sure to use a gentle exfoliator that is appropriate for your skin type and again, don’t over do it.

Drink plenty of water

Water flushes out toxins and improves circulation. Try to drink at least eight glasses of water to keep your skin looking soft and supple.

Get enough sleep

Apart from the fact that lack of sleep tells on your skin, it also affects your overall health. If you are always tired you are not at your most productive anyway, so why not call it a night and get the rest you need? Sleeping well will not only help to reduce your stress levels but it will also give your skin time to regenerate itself.

Apply eye cream

The skin around your eyes is some of the most sensitive, delicate skin on the entire body. Take care of it by applying a nightly eye cream.

Always moisturize

Moisturized skin is happy skin! Your skin will naturally plump up after applying moisturizer which helps to straighten out the wrinkles. Apply moisturizer when your skin is still damp from your shower or bath – this will lock in moisture and keep your skin looking plump and healthy all day long.

Skincare Don’ts

Don’t smoke

If you need motivation to quit, just take some time to examine the skin of long-term smokers. No offense to them, but even a smoker will admit that it will make your skin yellowish and unattractive with lots of wrinkles around the lips. So quit. Today. Your skin will thank you for years to come.

Never use body soap on the face

These types of soaps are meant for use below the neck. Only use cleansers that are made for the face because they are much gentler on delicate skin.

Don’t be sporadic about your skincare

Cleanse and moisturize every day to offset the pollution and other toxins your skin is exposed to on a daily basis. When you apply skincare products, use them properly. Five minutes in the morning and five minutes in the evening can make a huge difference for your skin over a lifetime.
