Fall Beauty Tips for Skincare Enthusiasts

Fall Beauty Tips for Skincare Enthusiasts

Fall is coming, and with it comes sweater weather, warm drinks, and a brand new skin care regimen. As the cooler temperatures hit, make sure your skin is ready for fall by following the fall beauty tips below.

  • Moisturize – when the air is drier, as it tends to be in colder months, you’ll need a heavier moisturizer (cream rather than lighter, oil-based) to keep your skin from cracking. And moisturize every day for the best results.
  • Exfoliate – exfoliation is key in preventing dryness and keeping your skin soft. Use an all-natural scrub without harsh chemicals or plastic beads. Exfoliation can sometimes be harsh on your skin, so try exfoliating your skin once a week during the fall months.
  • Get some rest – sleep is still the best medicine for glowing skin, and rest has a whole host of other benefits, so there’s no excuse for skipping out. Make sure you’re getting between 7-9 hours every night to look and feel your best.
  • Hydrate – it’s easy to remember to guzzle water when the weather is steamy and you’re sweating it all out. But don’t miss out on drinking plenty of fluid all year round. Stay away from too much sugar or caffeine. Plan water is best.
  • Sunscreen – just because it isn’t 80 degrees and sunny outside doesn’t mean the sun can’t damage your skin. Use a sunscreen of at least SPF 15 on all areas of your body that aren’t covered by clothing, and reapply throughout the day as necessary, especially on your face.
  • Don’t forget – areas like lips and cuticles get dry too, and can be particularly painful if they crack. Lip balm and cuticle cream are quick additions to your skin care routine and will save you from painful dry areas.

Most importantly, always pay attention to what your skin is telling you. You may need to switch products as fall approaches. Seasonal changes definitely affect your body in many ways, so if you notice breakouts, flaky skin, or other problems, it’s a sign that whatever you’re doing now needs to be switched up. Don’t be afraid to experiment this fall to see what works for your skin care regimen.

We look forward to seeing you the next time you’re at Grapevine Towne Center and please remember to contact us with any of your questions or concerns.

Staycations near Dallas

For those of you that live near the Dallas area, remember that there are lots of things that you can do during the summer on a simple and inexpensive day trip or staycation. Staying close to home and not staying overnight in a hotel doesn’t mean you can’t have a great time and explore somewhere new! Sometimes it’s hard to plan, pack, board the pets or haul them along too, book hotel rooms and schedule everyone’s vacation time just to get away for a few days.

Summer Entertaining Tips

Summer Entertaining Tips

Although any time of year is a good time for entertaining guests, trying to host an event during the hot Texas summers can be a bit of a task. To help you out with this, Grapevine Towne Center is sharing some fun summer entertaining tips.

Cool Outdoor Furniture

The heat may be a bit of a deterrent, but there really isn’t anything better than sitting out on your patio with your friends and family for an afternoon of summer fun! You can find all sorts of breathable outdoor furniture so you don’t have to worry about a chair giving you a sweaty back. Your furniture can help guests can stay nice and comfy even when it’s a real scorcher.

Easy Clean Up

Don’t worry about bringing out the fine china for your summer cookout. Beat those flimsy paper plates for a more eco-friendly version. Nothing will make you seem more like the best host than to have some fun, summer-inspired dinnerware that’s reusable and easy to wash.

Summer Living

Who says the party has to stop just because the sun went down? Summer is all about staying up late and enjoying the cool night air. Make sure you and your guests can keep the fun going even after sunset with some great outdoor lighting.

We hope these summer entertaining tips help you turn your plain jane backyard into an outdoor oasis where you can have friends and family over for plenty of unforgettable good times.

Trick or Treat Safety with the Grapevine Community!

Trick or Treat Safety with the Grapevine Community!

It’s nearly Halloween and we can’t wait to do some trick or treating in the Grapevine community! Although Halloween can be fun and games, trick or treating is sometimes serious business! Make sure your kids are safe in our Grapevine community this Halloween with our top trick or treat safety tips.

Make Sure You’re Visible

While Halloween may be the only time we can get away with dressing in dark and super scary costumes, you still want to make sure you and your child can still be seen. More often than not, vehicles will not be able to see you at night if you are dressed in all black. To make sure you’re visible, add reflective tape to your child’s costume and bring a flashlight. Let’s make this the safest Halloween yet!

Check The Candy! 

You should ALWAYS check your child’s candy, no matter where they received it from. Always be safe than sorry! It’s super quick and easy, and if you find anything that doesn’t appear to be candy, call the police or throw it away immediately!

Plan Your Route and Carry Cell Phones

Whether you’re extremely familiar with the Grapevine community or not, make sure you always plan your route and carry cell phones. There are too many monsters and ghosts running away and the possibility of losing each other is high! Regardless of where you’re trick or treating, it’s best to plan your route.

Have you got your Halloween costume and decorations sorted yet? Visit Spirit Halloween at Grapevine Towne Center and get prepared:

Tips to Stay Healthy During Summer

Tips to Stay Healthy During Summer

It’s now summer, and that means boats, lakes, floating the river, and long summer nights. Bikini body season is officially here, and this may or may not give you an anxiety attack. There is always room for improvement, so we sat down with the Weight Watchers Grapevine team to discover tips to stay healthy during summer.

1. Drink Lots of Water

Keeping hydrated during Summer is essential, especially in Texas. We recommend taking a large water bottle wherever you go to make sure you always have water available.

2. Eat Healthy Snacks

Whether it be by the pool or next to the grill, we love to snack during Summer during our relaxing times. Switch your chips, dips, and queso to delicious, refreshing Summer fruits. We love melons, strawberries, watermelon, and grapes!

3. Stick to low-calorie drinks

Let’s be honest. Summer is for drinking, and that means calories. We always recommend drinking lightly and our drink of choice is Deep Eddy Grapefruit Vodka with tonic. It doesn’t pack tons of calories and is delicious!
