share their inspiration, advice, and favorite products for autumn.
We grew up in Northern California, where we had all four seasons. Leaves would change colors and fall off the branches this time of year. In Los Angeles (where we all live now), the seasons are more subtle. For us, fall has become more of a feeling or a mood. That’s why we think it’s important to make changes to your beauty look and routine to celebrate the transition. As kids, we were all familiar with the feeling of “back to school” and wanting to return to campus with a cool, new look. We said, why should this stop after elementary school? Trying something new can be liberating and make you feel younger. Something as simple as a darker, deeper shade of lipstick or going a shade richer with your hair or eyebrow color can instantly change your look.

Reason to Love: Big Sur is a romantic getaway this time of year because of the way the fog rolls in across the majestic cliffs, and there’s a chill in the air. Deetjen’s, which was built in the 1930s, is this rustic and cozy inn nestled on the edge of the Redwood Forest. Plus, the food at the restaurant is award-winning, fresh and delicious.
Streicher Must: Be sure to book a massage and soak in the hot springs at Esalen. These cliffside hot springs have been used by the Esselen Indians for healing rituals for more than 6,000 years.
Reason to Love: The hot and cold baths are great for thermal therapy, which strengthens the immune system and promotes blood circulation.
Streicher Must: Schedule a treatment that consists of a full-body exfoliation. A Korean scrub removes every bit of dead skin and is traditionally followed by a very slippery oil massage. There’s nothing better than an immediate moisture surge for that new layer of skin. It’s total skin renewal.
Reason to Love: Apple picking and wine tasting are great ways to revel in the season outdoors. For us, it’s not fall without a trip to Apple Hill, where you can pick your own apples. They also have a charming shop that sells caramel and candied apples, pumpkins and, of course, pie.
Streicher Must: There are some great wineries in the area. Boeger is our favorite. They make such delicious wines and have beautiful picnic grounds. It’s a must-visit.
