How To Transition To a Fall Skincare Routine

It's that magical time of year when the long days of summer transform into the crisp, breezy days of Fall, and with that change comes lower temperatures. So as you get out your flannel shirts, jeans, and hoodies, take care to transition your summer skincare regimen to a new Autumn skin care routine.


Read on for some Fall skincare tips that will help you skin transition the seasons with ease.


Why Adopt a Fall Skincare Routine?

Fall skincare products typically offer more hydration than lightweight Summer skincare. Switching Summer skin care for Fall skincare products often means using a richer moisturizer and a creamier cleanser to impart added moisture to dry skin, which is a common concern as the temperature drops.


Low humidity and cooler temps can equal dry, itchy skin, which is where switching to Fall skincare that contains ingredients like cocoa butter can help your skin retain necessary moisture to avoid flaking, itching, and patches of redness.


Your skin sustains damage from the sun during the summer months, so using Autumn skin care tips that allow you to restore your skin, eliminate dead skin cells, and smooth, soften, and hydrate summer skin makes Fall skincareeven more important. If you're pregnant, you may have different skin concerns, such as reducing stretch marks, so include special Fall skincare items in your daily routine that also support skin elasticity.


Natural ingredients including shea butter and coconut oil show up in some of our favorite Fall skincare must-haves, so adding products to your Autumn skin care routine that contain these skin-loving ingredients maximizes your skin's potential to look and feel amazing all Winter long.
