Do You Need To Change Your Skincare Routine For Fall?

If you never change your skincare routine, you might be doing your skin a huge disservice. Sure, you see better results when you consistently use a product, but you also need to pay attention to your environment. Just like your wardrobe, you skincare needs to be changed with the seasons. The change from summer to fall in particular can drastically affect your skin. Here’s how to update your skincare routine to help your skin ease into the transition from summer to fall:

Evaluate your cleanser: During the summer, you want to get rid of all the oil and impurities on your face. However, come fall, you want to find a cleanser that isn’t too harsh or drying. This might be a surprise, but you don’t want to remove all the oil from your fact. A little oil actually helps to keep your skin healthy and hydrated. Use a gentle cleanser, like the philosophy Purity Made Simple ($24), or a cleansing oil to wash your skin.

Change your moisturizer: Skin tends to be more oily in the summer. When the weather starts to cool off, the humidity drops and the dry air can affect your skin. Dry weather usually means dry skin.  It’s important to keep your skin hydrated because dry skin actually tries to overcompensate by producinh more oil, which can cause acne. Amp up your hydration game by swapping out your daily moisturizer for a more a heavier formula. At night, use a a rich moisturizing cream such as the belif True Cream Moisturizing Bomb ($38), which  provides the skin with intense, soothing hydration. For even more hydration, trying adding a serum into your skincare routine.

Exfoliate: You might think that you would want to avoid exfoliating dry skin, but the opposite is true. When your skin is dry, it’s extremely important to exfoliate. A good exfoliator, such as the Frank Body Creamy Face Scrub ($21.95), will help revive parched skin. It will scrub away dead skin cells and leave your skin looking dewy and fresh. Don’t forget to give your body a good scrub down, too. Try the Herbivore Coco Rose Coconut Oil Body Polish ($48). This gentle, sugar-based body exfoliant buffs and hydrates skin at the same time.

Keep the SPF: Just because summer is over, doesn’t mean you get to ditch the SPF. Sun damage can happen any time of the year. You are exposed to the sun’s rays all the time. Protect yourself by using a daily moisturizer with a built-in SPF. If you’re going to be outside for a long period of time (say, apple picking), you still need to apply sunscreen to the areas that will be exposed to the sun.
