How to Get Your Summer Skin Ready for a Fall


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.


Here are all the fall skincare tips you need to know to get your skin ready for the seasonal transition.


What’s Your Skin Doing As Fall Approaches?


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:

  • Lower humidity decreases moisture and strains your skin’s protective lipid barrier.
  • Dry and cool air can dehydrate skin, leading to redness, flakiness, dullness, and breakouts.


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.

Switching to a Fall Skincare Routine


Here’s what you can do to keep your skin balanced and healthy as you move from summer to fall:


Invest In a Gentle Cream Cleanser


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. 


If this is the case, one of your critical fall skincare routine switches is to a gentle, cream-based cleanser as your primary face wash.  Our Bright Side Cream Cleanser is what you're looking for - with a mix of fruit and seed oils that quickly removes all traces of makeup and oil buildup without drying or irritating.

Use a Restorative Moisturizer


Summer is all about serums and light, gel-like moisturizers that provide adequate hydration without making you feel hot or sticky.


But for your fall skincare routine, you will need to invest in restorative moisturizer with a combination of humectants, emollients, and occlusives like our Daydreamer Natural Face Moisturizer. It's made with:

  • Hyaluronic acid
  • Vitamin E
  • Geranium Flower Water
  • Cocoa Seed Butter


This will help draw in water and lock that moisture into your skin, even in the face of dry air and chilly winds.

Continue Using Antioxidants


If you want to combat redness, sensitivity, and oncoming fine lines -- while addressing any  sunburns you might have accumulated over the last few months -- you must incorporate antioxidants into your routine like vitamin C and vitamin E. These powerhouse active ingredients will not only reduce irritation, but also:

  • Reduce the signs of aging
  • Repair damaged skin
  • Accelerate collagen synthesis
  • Reduce hyperpigmentation
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Encourage skin healing

Don’t Forget Your SPF


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.
