As the hot and humid weather fades into oblivion and the air turns crisper, it's time to adjust our skin care routines.
When humidity levels start to drop, the drier autumn air can lead to itchy or irritated skin and chapped lips.
Today, we’re sharing a few tips to make the transition from summer to fall seamless.
1. Protect Your Lips from the Elements
Your lips are delicate and deserve special attention, especially during the fall. Brisk winds, chilly air and indoor heat can leave your lips feeling dry and cracked.
When it’s cold out, reach for a nourishing balm like Kari Gran Lip Whip Treatment Balm. Thicker than your average lip balm Lip Whip treatment balms provide lasting moisture. Organic beeswax, camellia oil and non-GMO Vitamin E lock in moisture and keep lips hydrated.
Peppermint Blush leaves lips with a beautiful, blushed sheen or opt for a clear shade you can wear under lipstick.
2. Fall in Love with Moisture
In the fall when the air is drier adding a heavier (or extra) moisturizer is a simple step you can take to keep skin soft and supple. Being proactive is one of the best ways to help ward off dryness before it starts.
Moisturizing helps keep the skin barrier hydrated and protected. Dry, tight skin is the first sign of a weakened barrier. A weak barrier is prone to dryness, irritation, eczema and increased sensitivity.
Best fall moisturizer for oily or combination skin
If you have oily skin, look for a face moisturizer that will balance your skin without feeling heavy.
For long lasting hydration that won’t weigh down your oily skin we recommend Futurize Bakuchiol Serum. With just 3 ingredients (bakuchiol, rosehip oil and squalane), Futurize is lightweight and nourishing.
Bonus points: bakuchiol can help keep your skin clear without the side-effects of retinol.
Best fall moisturizer for dry skin
If you have dry skin reach for a nourishing moisturizer like Mokosh Rich Face Cream. This award-winning cream is ideal for dry skin promoting smooth, healthy, glowing skin.
If you need something lighter, we love Graydon’s Berry Rich Face Cream for this. A pea-sized amount works to reinforce the skin barrier function while improving hydration.
Best fall moisturizer for sensitive skin
When you have sensitive skin, look for gentle fragrance-free skincare products and choose a formula for your skin type.
Try a gentle essential oil free formula like Graydon Skin Stuff Face + Eye Cream or Mokosh Pure Organic Face Cream. These formulas can help replenish your skin barrier—your first line of defense against irritation.
3. Revitalize with a Vitamin C serum
Too much fun in the sun? Let a Vitamin C serum work its magic helping brighten dull skin and even out your skin tone. Think of it as a reset button for your skin, giving you a fresh start for fall.
4. Exfoliate for a brighter, refreshed complexion
Exfoliation is your secret weapon during the autumn months. Try it now to remove any pore clogging buildup (which can lead to breakouts) from summer sunscreen and excess oil.
If you have an uneven skin tone, try an exfoliating cleanser to wash your face or Hawaiian Beauty Water with papaya enzymes. A stronger formula like Complexion Polish will even out your skin tone and lighten the appearance of sunspots.
5. SPF: Your Fall Essential
Don’t stop using sunscreen just because you’ve traded in your sandals for boots. Even in the cooler months, the sun's rays can cause skin damage. If you wear sunscreen under your moisturizer, opt for a lighter formula like Hynt Beauty Sun Prep or Malu SPF Day Cream. Both of these formulas shield skin from harmful UV rays without feeling greasy or heavy.
We hope these skin care tips help you transition seamlessly into fall.
