It happens every year - summer is coming to a close and fall is just around the corner.
As you break out your sweaters and your pumpkin spice treats (or anti-pumpkin spice treats, if it’s not your jam), there’s one thing you can’t forget: your fall skincare routine.

First thing’s first: what’s actually happening to your skin during this transition, and why do you need to prepare?
As summer draws to a close, most areas will start experiencing significant weather and environmental changes. Your skin will respond to these changes and adjust itself accordingly. Specifically:
With so many environmental changes, one of the top fall skincare tips is to be gentle with your skin. It's also time to incorporate products that strengthen your natural barrier, provide much-needed moisture, balance redness, and keep breakouts at bay.
Here’s what you can do to keep your skin balanced and healthy as you move from summer to fall:
In summertime, your skin is naturally oilier and you're likely spending a lot of time outdoors. This can lead to more grime and dirt on the face -- and you may be reaching for a stronger cleanser as a result.

Just because you might spend more time indoors doesn’tmean that you can start skipping the SPF. Remember, UV exposure is responsible for up to 80% of the visible signs of aging. That means that the one simple act of applying SPF regularly can help you look 80% younger over time!
For a skin safe, moisturizing formula with broad spectrum UV protection, go with our Chase the Sun SPF 30 Face Moisturizer. It's lightweight, contains a blend of mineral and clean chemical sunscreen actives, and provides invisible, complete protection from harmful UVA/UVB rays. It blends in easily, leaving behind a glowing, dewy finish with no embarrassing white residue.
