Can you believe the summer break is over, and the new academic year is at your doorstep? Whether you’re preparing your children to go back to school or are getting back to a year of studies yourself, Autumn is the perfect time to recommit to your daily routine to ensure you look and feel your absolute best.
This September, try these 10 glow-up hacks to get your mind and body re-centred and ready to take on autumn and winter. There are no rules; simply choose what and how you want to incorporate these tips over the coming weeks to fuel you mentally and physically for the second half of a busy year.
Glow Up Your Mind
Summer is all about relaxation-mode and the opportunity to let your hair down, so it’s no surprise that getting back to a busy routine once September rolls round can be especially difficult. Here are a few ways you can get your mind in gear for a productive autumn.
Set your goals:
Before you commit to getting back into a daily routine, take some time to sit down and think about what you’d like to accomplish over the next 6 months and make sure you organise your daily routine to reflect these goals. Whether it’s finding better work/life balance or saving enough for a winter holiday, these goals are key to outlining which priorities will guide you.
Start every day off on the right foot:
Set your alarm 30 minutes earlier than you usually would to create a bit of extra time for you! Use this as an opportunity to add mindfulness to your day. Maybe that includes a yoga or workout session, or simply a few moments to reflect, meditate and breathe. This is also the perfect time to practise journaling, writing down your plan for the day or week ahead.

Beat the afternoon slump:
Juggling tight deadlines at work, keeping your home tidy, staying on top of family schedules and adding a social life to the mix is a lot to keep up with. And sometimes, your brain feels frazzled. Modere GO takes a holistic approach to optimising energy levels, alertness, focus and cognitive function. Made with clean energy derived from green tea and 23 support ingredients — 10 vitamins, 3 minerals and 10 other nutrients — each scientifically selected, single-serve packet helps you get more done and mentally perform your best.
Glow Up Your Body
Making sure your head is in the right space is essential, but your body needs to keep up too! Below we’ll take you through a few ways you can keep your body nourished, hydrated and ready to take on the day by unlocking your own beautiful glow from within.
Boost your everyday nutrition:
Nourishing your body with the essential nutrients you need to function optimally is essential to achieving overall vitality. Choosing a wide variety of whole, unprocessed foods that provide a rich range of vitamins, minerals, fibre and other vital components will take you a long way toward accomplishing your health goals. But whilst eating well is good advice, the reality is that chasing after all those unending obligations can often result in poor eating habits. Supplementing your nutrition daily with science-backed formulas can ensure your body is getting the fuel it needs.
Our Modere Axis™ range, including Axis TreBiotic and Axis Phytos, works synergistically with the friendly bacteria in your gut, putting you in control of your overall wellness. Modere Axis™ TreBiotic features a 3-in-1 matrix with friendly bacteria that thrive in the gastrointestinal tract, and Modere Axis™ PhytoReds and PhytoGreens contain 17 highly bioavailable and bioactive fruits and vegetables to boost your nutrition and support a balanced diet. Add these to your daily routine for a wellness glow.
It’s hard to feel energetic when you spend most of your day sitting at a computer or in a lecture hall, so make sure you incorporate movement into your daily routine. Whether it’s a walk with your dog, a CrossFit session with your friends or a yoga workout in your lounge, just 20 minutes a day is beneficial to your mental and physical wellbeing. And exercise isn’t just good for your health or keeping off the weight, it also helps improve your mood, concentration and energy levels.
There’s nothing quite as refreshing as a good night’s sleep, so prioritizing a mindful bedtime routine is just as important as maintaining healthy habits in your daytime routine. Not only is sleep essential to your brain health, cognitive function and mood, but when you sleep well, your body also boosts the blood flow to your skin, so you’ll wake up refreshed and with a glowing complexion!
Glow Up Your Beauty Routine
The transition from summer to autumn and winter often leaves skin looking dry and dull, but with these glow-up tips it’s easy to let your inner beauty shine so you have the confidence to take on every day looking your best.
Inspect your beauty products:
What you put on your skin is equally as important as what you put in your body. Popular personal care formulas often contain ingredients that could be considered controversial, not only to human health, but to the environment. At Modere, our #LiveClean philosophy means you always have effective, clean label alternatives to the beauty essentials you use every day. We believe that what we leave out of our products is as important as what we include, and we prioritize innovative, science-backed formulas that work.
Worried you’ll lose your summer glow? We’ve got just what you need for authentic-looking, true colour through any season. Modere CellProof Sunless Tanning Foam helps maintain your summer glow and supports younger looking skin with its clean label self-tanner formula backed by BioCell Collagen® CG in a streak-free, quick-drying foam. Pair it with bestselling Modere CellProof Body Firming Foam in between applications for skin that looks visibly firm and toned. This duo helps you flaunt it confidently so you can look as vibrant as you feel!
Build new bonds and strengthen hair with every wash:
A healthy, beautiful mane is one of the best accessories for any glow-up. But after a summer exposed to heat, chlorine and salt water, your hair can feel dry, damaged and unkempt. September is the perfect time to revive your strands with Modere CellProof MicroBond™ Hair System. Backed by FiberHance™ and BioCell Collagen® CG, our shampoo and conditioner help build the most abundant hair bonds up to 3x stronger, maintain existing bonds, increase hair volume and shine and promote thicker, fuller looking locks.‡ In fact, after just one use, CellProof MicroBond formulas are shown to improve smoothness and manageability by 89%, decrease split ends by 86% and reduce breakage by 63%. Damage? Consider it controlled.†
Brighten your complexion:
Whether you want to keep skin looking young and flawless from season to season or reverse the visible signs of ageing brought on by a natural slowing of skin cell turnover, retinol effectively removes a build-up of dead skin cells and encourages a renewed appearance, revealing the brightest, youngest and smoothest looking version of your complexion. But retinol can also cause harsh side effects. Modere CellProof Bakuchiol Booster takes your natural beauty to the next level with a powerful dose of 1% plant-based bakuchiol, shown to be as effective as retinol without the dryness or peeling. Each concentrated drop promotes optimal surface skin cell turnover, targeting the buildup of dead skin cells that can exacerbate the look of wrinkles, uneven skin tone and a dull complexion. The result? Noticeably brighter, clearer and smoother looking skin with visibly reduced fine lines and wrinkles.
So, there you have it — 10 glow-up tips to get you back-to-school ready with an optimized daily routine to support you inside and out. It’s the perfect boost to get you back on track after summer holiday and help you look and feel your best for the rest of 2023.
