Revamp your wellness routine: Top 10 essential health and beauty tips to help become a happier you this autumn

Shifting from summer to autumn is often seen as a return to self – falling back into your routine and re-assessing what’s important. But be sure that you don’t return to bad habits, especially when it comes to your health and beauty.

With pointers on everything from hair to skin and beyond, here are Checklist‘s top 10 health and beauty tips to see you through autumn.

New antiperspirant that’s kinder on you and the planet

Make Waves has developed a refillable antiperspirant – a first in the UK – which is packed with premium natural ingredients for its base, whilst harnessing the power of traditional antiperspirant ingredients for performance.

Make Waves recognise that people want to smell great and don’t want sweat patches, but also want a more sustainable solution to what’s on offer on the shelf. That means providing a refillable antiperspirant that has the performance of the big brands, but in a formulation packed with premium natural ingredients, rich in vitamins, and that is kind to your skin – all in a more sustainable model.

The one-time purchase applicator can be used time and time again thanks to refill capsules that are made from fully recycled material. Make Waves want to prevent single use plastics from ending up in landfill or even worse, the ocean, by giving it a new lease of life. 

Having launched just a month ago, they’re already rated ‘Excellent’ on Trustpilot, plus all their products are vegan friendly, cruelty free, dermatologically tested, and 100% made in the UK!
