Chapter 26: Summer to Fall Skin Care Transition

Beauty Book

Say goodbye to your lightweight skin care products and make room for richer ones such as thicker creams and sleeping masks. The air is about to get a lot drier so your skin will need extra hydration to maintain that glow you’ve been flaunting all summer long.

Need some help with transitioning your skin care routine from summer to fall? Follow these tips for a smooth transition: 

Exfoliate more

Exfoliating is a must in everyone’s daily skin care routine to keep dead skin cells at bay and keep your skin smooth throughout every season. As the weather gets cooler, it’s even more important to exfoliate to ensure that your skin won’t get clogged with excess sebum and dirt. 

Go for a gentle scrub or try A’PIEU’s Glycolic Acid Cream, which contains AHA, BHA and birch extract that gently exfoliate skin while replenishing it with all the moisture it’s going to need during fall. 

 

Swap out your moisturizers

If you already have dry skin, you’ll need an even richer cream for your skin to ease into a new season. To avoid dealing with dry patches or flaky skin, swap out that lightweight moisturizer in your summer beach bag for one that offers deeper hydration. Creams from Belif, Real Barrier and LISSE DERM are all great options for you to choose from, depending on the level of hydration your skin needs. 

 

Continue using sunscreen 

Applying sunscreen shouldn’t stop just because your days at the beach are over. The sun still shines during fall and winter so your skin still needs protection against UV rays, which can pass through clouds. So the next time it’s cloudy outside and you’re thinking of skipping sunscreen, think again!

If you prefer a lightweight formula, go for the Waterful Sun Gel SPF50+ PA+++ from Earth’s Recipes. Your skin will absorb this sun gel pretty quickly since it doesn’t have a thick or heavy formula. You also don’t have to worry about it leaving a white cast.

 

Invest in a face oil

Applying face oil does wonders for the skin especially during the colder months. Add a few drops of face oil after your moisturizer at night and you’ll wake up to a glowy and radiant complexion. TOSOWOOG’s Tamanu 100% Botanic Oil is perfect for all skin types, even sensitive or acne-prone skin. This non-comedogenic oil is made with 100% tamanu fruit seed oil that helps balance out your complexion as well as soothe skin.  

 

Use a humidifier

While autumn air feels cool and fresh, it’s also dry, which isn’t good news for your skin. If the dry air wreaks havoc on your skin, then it’s time to get yourself a humidifier. Humidifiers are extremely helpful as they add moisture into the air. Goodbye dry, itchy skin!

Come fall, keep a USB humidifier at your office desk. It’ll help keep your skin hydrated throughout the day, plus they make great desk accessories especially if they’re as cute as this penguin or cactus humidifier!
