The transition from summer to fall can be harsh on your skin, with cooler, drier air and potential shifts in humidity levels. To keep your skin healthy and radiant, it's essential to adapt your skincare routine accordingly. In this blog post, we'll guide you through the steps to transition your skincare routine from summer to fall, ensuring that your skin remains hydrated, protected, and glowing throughout the season.
Adjust Your Cleanser:
Start by switching to a gentler, more hydrating cleanser. Summer may have left your skin feeling oily and sweaty, but fall often leads to drier, more sensitive skin. Opt for a mild, sulfate-free cleanser that will remove impurities without stripping your skin of its natural oils. This step will help maintain your skin's moisture balance. We recommend our gentle Double-Duty Amino Gel Face Cleanser which, like all our other products, is non-toxic and free of parabens, sulphates, phthalates, silicone, dyes & fragrances.
While exfoliation is crucial year-round, you may want to adjust your exfoliation frequency as the seasons change. In fall, your skin may become more sensitive, so consider reducing the frequency of harsh exfoliants like chemical peels or physical scrubs. Instead, opt for milder exfoliation methods such as enzymatic exfoliants or gentle exfoliating masks like our Frontliner Mask + Scrub with gentle Kaolin clay.
Switch to a Heavier Moisturizer
As the air becomes cooler and less humid, it's time to switch to a richer, more hydrating moisturizer. Look for products that contain ingredients like hyaluronic acid, ceramides, and fatty acids to provide your skin with the extra nourishment it needs, try our Ultimate Rich Face Cream with 3 hyaluronic acids & shea butter. Applying a thicker moisturizer like this will help create a barrier against the drying effects of fall weather.
Don't Forget Sunscreen
Even though summer is over, don't skip sunscreen. UV rays are present year-round and can still damage your skin, especially when reflected off surfaces like water or snow. Opt for a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30, and apply it daily, even on cloudy days.
Add a Serum to Your Routine
Consider incorporating a hydrating or antioxidant-rich serum into your skincare routine. Serums can provide an extra layer of protection and nourishment for your skin. Look for serums with ingredients like vitamin C, various seed oils, or hyaluronic acid to target specific concerns and maintain your skin's vibrancy.

Lip and Hand Care
Your lips and hands are often the first to show signs of dryness in the fall. Invest in a good lip balm and hand cream to keep them soft and moisturized. Look for products with ingredients like shea butter or beeswax.
Transitioning your skincare routine from summer to fall is essential for maintaining healthy, glowing skin throughout the season. By making these adjustments and providing your skin with the extra care it needs, you'll be well-prepared to face the cooler, drier weather.
