While the changing weather of autumn inspires you to put your favorite jackets and booties into wardrobe rotation, it’s also the perfect time to align your skincare routine with the season. As temps cool down and the humidity starts to shift, your skin will need some extra TLC. To make the transition into fall easier from head to toe, we’ve zeroed in on six products to work into your skincare regimen. Read on for fall skincare tips.
Swap out your summer sunscreen for this SPF 50 tinted lotion to help make the transition to fall a smooth one. Not only does it have physical barriers (titanium dioxide and zinc oxide) to protect skin against both UVA, UVB and infrared rays, but it also acts as a primer for a flawless makeup application. Rice bran, argan oil and apple extract team up to moisturize without weighing your skin down.
The unpredictable temperature changes that fall brings can cause your skin to either run overly dry, or overproduce in the oil department. This misting toner provides soothing hydration, purifies your T-zone and also acts as a light mattifier, too.
If you’re dreading the inevitable hat hair that comes with sporting your favorite knit caps and beanies, this leave-in cream will do the trick. One application provides a whopping 10 benefits: hydrating moisture, UV protection, shine, softness, smoothness, strength, heat protection, anti-breakage, manageability and light hold. You can use it alone or as a base to other styling products.
During this transitionary time, your skin isn’t quite ready for winter’s heavy moisturizers, but hydration is definitely still a must. The hyaluronic acid in this dual-chambered serum draws the air’s moisture into your skin, resulting in a plumper texture with reduced wrinkles and fine lines. Pro-Niacin and peptides also go to work busting on any sun damage that your summer adventures may have left behind.
Not ready to part with your summertime glow just yet? Keep your subtle tan going strong with this self-tanning lotion, which builds a natural-looking tan that lasts for about a week. Bonus: No telltale tanner scent left behind, thanks to proprietary technology called Odour Remove.
This four-pack of quickie face masks is packed with vitamin B5 to soften and smooth skin, betaine for serious hydration and hyaluronic acid to improve your skin’s elasticity. It’s so fast-acting—seriously, just 5 minutes is all you need—that you can even duck into the restroom at work or while running errands for an emergency boost of hydration.
