The end of Daylight Saving Time means that we're going to gain an extra hour every day, but the additional 60 minutes doesn't come without a catch: It's going to get darker out even earlier. Losing a bit of sunlight is a good consolation for having more time to catch up on work or sleep, but if we're being honest, chances are we're going to use the next four months as an opportunity to indulge in the areas of our beauty routines we've ben slacking on.
Applying an exfoliating scrub in a warm bath, and working on brightening up our smiles are two places where we plan to start. Here, we have five skin and hair treatments to indulge in with the extra hour the end of Daylight Saving Time is giving us.
