Transition Your Skincare Routine from Summer to Fall

As the season transitions from summer to fall, so should your skincare routine. While the steps of your regimen should largely remain the same, altering the products that you use can ensure that your skin remains protected and hydrated in the fall and winter. Here, we’ll discuss how you can take care of your skin this fall for a beautiful, glowing visage. 

Opt for a Heftier Moisturizer

Hot and sweaty summer days call for light moisturizers. However, in the fall, dropping humidity levels and rising winds can dry your skin out. So, swapping out your light summer moisturizer for a thicker, more nourishing product in the fall is a wise choice. Look for ingredients including hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and ceramides, all of which offer powerful and lasting hydration!

Choose a Gentle Cleanser

If you were using a cleanser designed to reduce excess oil in the summer, you may want to find a gentler option to use this fall. Non-foaming, cream-based cleansers are ideal for protecting your skin’s moisture barrier in the fall and winter, when it’s more likely to become dry and irritated. 

Utilize Retinol

Topical retinol boosts collagen production and regulates the skin cycle, making it an excellent product for fending off signs of aging and improving the overall appearance of the skin. However, retinol increases your skin’s sensitivity to the sun, so many people use it in moderation in the summer. In the fall and winter, when people typically spend more time inside, we recommend making retinol a regular part of your skincare routine by applying it at night. It’s wise to start by applying it every other night, then, if no excessive dryness occurs, increase your application to every night.

Continue Using SPF

Summer may be over, but that doesn’t mean you can nix the SPF. You’re still at risk of sunburn in the fall and winter, even if the weather is overcast, making it crucial to continue applying sunscreen before heading outside.
