There are many different images that come to mind when you think of the month of September; a cool breeze that brings the aroma of apple and pumpkin spices, the leaves beginning to change from green to yellow, red and orange, and digging through your closet to find your pair of boots, kids rustling through backpacks to find the right school supplies.

Whether it’s physically, mentally, spiritually, in the workplace, at home, or educationally, September is considered the perfect month to make changes to your life.

But some theorize that the month of September usually coincides with the Jewish New Year Rosh Hashanah, where many people made New Years resolutions to improve aspects of their life.

Also, with the season change in September, skin tends to be dry especially on the face. Keeping a mineral water facial spray on hand will refresh your make up and moisturize skin. And let’s not forget the importance of having flawless hair.
