Refresh Your Skin-Care Routine for Fall With These Simple Product Swaps
The changing of the seasons is always a good excuse to reassess your skin type, needs and routine. The drop in temperature and humidity from summer to fall usually means it’s time to swap out your favorite warm-weather skin-care products for those better suited to colder climates. This oftentimes means reaching for gentler products designed to deliver long-lasting hydration and soothe dry skin. Need a fall skin-care overhaul? Check out the products Skincare.com’s editors swear by, ahead.
Swap in a Heavy-Duty Cream
Lightweight, water-based lotions and gels may have kept your skin hydrated during the summer months, but once fall hits, you’ll want to max out on moisturize. With chillier weather often comes dry skin, and your product picks need to reflect that. Push your lighter serums and moisturizers aside until the seasons switch again and reach for a heavy-duty face lotion like the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream or IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Cream Hydrating Moisturizer.
Swap in a Gentle Cleanser
Opting for a cream cleanser that pulls double duty by nourishing and cleansing your complexion at the same time is important when chillier temperatures arrive. We like the IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Cleanser because it helps remove impurities and oil from the skin’s surface gently and effectively, but also hydrates the skin with hyaluronic acid and ceramides.
Swap in a Brightening Serum (Or Two!)
Hopefully you managed to avoid any sunburns this summer, but even still, fall is the perfect time to repair any damage from UV ray exposure and other environmental aggressors. Formulated with bifidus prebiotic, hyaluronic acid, vitamin C and ceramides, the Lancôme Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate tackles dryness, dullness, uneven skin texture and addresses fine lines and wrinkles. Skin looks more radiant in just one week.
And don’t forget your eyes: To brighten the look of dark under-eye circles, tap the Kiehl’s Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing & Dark Circle-Diminishing Vitamin C Eye Serum around your eye contour morning and night.
Swap in a Powerhouse Night Cream
Take advantage of the time your skin repairs itself by applying an ultra moisturizing night cream like the IT Cosmetics Confidence in Your Beauty Sleep Night Cream. It helps improve surface cell renewal for skin that feels firmer and looks plumper. And the lavender scent gives fall’s typical pumpkin spice a run for its (expected) money.
