Seasonal Skin Care 101: Fall

Seasonal Skin Care 101: Fall

This post is brought to you by our Esthetics Experts Panel, composed of skin care professionals, educators + authorities with decades of experience in the industry.

The transition from summer to fall is exciting yet bittersweet, as it brings challenges along with the change in weather - most notably, the usual (and new!) skin care issues. Here’s everything you need to know about how to change your skin care routine for the fall and how to successfully start your cold weather skin care routine to tackle the beginning of seasonal skin concerns.

reverse summer sun damage

No matter how much you prioritized SPF during the sunny summer months, it’s likely that you still experienced some sun damage - whether visible or not. The truth is that UVA and UVB rays are omnipresent and powerful, regardless of the forecast. Unless you were diligent with applying and reapplying regularly, your skin may need some extra attention to help remedy any sun spots or hyperpigmentation. Innovative formulas like LightPlex GigaWatt Dark Spot Corrector and LightPlex MegaWatt Skin Brightener will help target, lighten and brighten common signs of aging skin caused by the sun.

target skin sensitivity

Allergies may not be as much of a problem as temperatures drop, but signs of sensitivity can still persist in other ways. Every skin will react differently as surroundings, circumstances and age change - so your skin care routine should reflect that as well. Whether you notice sudden dryness, irritation, redness or maskne, we recommend adding in a soothing formula or two to be proactive against sudden signs of sensitivities. A calming toner like Soothing Reset Mist will provide a lightweight layer of hydration that will also help your moisturizer absorb more effectively. Barrier Fix Daily Hydrator is an ideal moisturizer to assist with strengthening the skin barrier and protect against external stressors.

exfoliate with care

Regular exfoliation has many benefits, though it’s important to approach exfoliating with caution. Too frequent or too aggressive of an exfoliator can unnecessarily damage or sensitize skin, while not exfoliating enough can cause skin to become more congested and flare up other skin issues. Opt for a leave-on gel chemical exfoliator like Quick Refiner as opposed to a physical exfoliator to still see smoother, softer skin - without any mess or extra work - as you head into cooler temperatures.

keep skin radiant

Saying goodbye to summer doesn’t mean saying goodbye to glow! In order to achieve a radiant, youthful complexion all year long, look for serums with antioxidants. Serums are key to lightweight and comfortable layering. For a boost of fullness, Plump Start seamlessly sinks into the skin to help with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. For guaranteed glow, vc10 daily glow is a superior vitamin C formula that gives aging skin a surge of hydration as it brightens and protects against free radicals and blue light from regular phone or computer use.

lock in hydration

As the weather starts to drop, the natural humidity of summer disappears from the air - and subsequently zaps the moisture from your skin. Incorporating an ultra-hydrating 10-minute treatment mask like Collagen Rehab will create a discernible moisture barrier on skin and lips for 72 hours. Follow with your nighttime moisturizer and seal it in with an occlusive facial oil like Dewluxe. The ideal fall skin care formula, Dewluxe melts right into the skin to lock in moisture, replenish protective barrier lipids and deliver natural dewiness - all while diminishing the appearance of fine lines. Dry, very dry and combination skin will especially love Dewluxe as part of their cold weather skin care routine.
