When seasons change, your wardrobe isn’t the only thing that switches up with the weather; your skincare should, too. You no longer have to go the extra mile to make sure that your skin isn’t super oily in the heat or worry that sweating will cause pimples to spring up. Cool temps means less stripping and aggressive skincare.
The oil-eliminating cleanser that you swore by during the summer? Too drying now. Swap it out for something that helps your skin retain moisture, like Laura Mercier Flawless Skin Purifying Cleansing Oil. Using an oil cleanser is a win-win because if you have dry/sensitive skin the oil will not strip your skin and leave it feeling tight. If you have oily/combo/acne-prone skin, the oil will break down the oil in your skin (remember we learned this in chemistry class?) better than any mattifying product can without sucking your skin dry.
Because of the change in weather, you have to be careful about the way that you exfoliate your skin. Cleansing two or three times a week with glycolic acid like this one by Mario Badescu will chemically exfoliate your skin without being abrasive.
When it comes to your nightly regimen, add a thicker moisturizing crème to hydrate your skin as you sleep. Don’t forget the eye cream, and drink lots of water! Hydration starts from the inside out.
So moral of the story?
Add extra hydration to your regimen, perhaps even when it comes to your makeup, too. Tinted moisturizers and creamy foundations can replace our stand- by summer favorites.
How will you switch up your skincare this fall, ladies?
