Fall Into a New Skincare Routine With These 6 Must-Have Products
You’ve dusted off your favorite chunky turtleneck and unpacked the Cinnamon Apple Pie candles—but there's one more thing to freshen up for fall—your skincare regimen.
After months of basking in the glow of (free) Vitamin D-rich sunshine, let’s take a moment and assess how we keep our skin in tip-top shape ahead of chillier weather to ensure glowy, healthy-looking skin for those year-end parties.
1. SPF. YEAR. ROUND.
Saying it louder for the people in the back. You’ve heard it before—don’t lower your SPF game just because the temps are dropping and cloudier days are ahead. Try derm-fave EltaMD UV Clear Broad-Spectrum SPF 46 to protect your skin from UV rays all year round.
2. Amp Up Your Moisturizer
Colder temps and a drop in humidity often lead to dry, itchy skin. Start incorporating a rich, creamy moisturizer like Elemis Superfood Night Cream for your face or add an aloe-infused product like Vaseline Intensive Care Aloe Soothe Lotion for full-body hydration.
3. Tone It Down
Avoid toners with a high alcohol content that may further dry out the skin. Products like Paula’s Choice Pore Reducing Toner with a low 5-7 pH level balances skin and excess oils without harsh alcohols or fragrances.
4. Start Your Routine in the Shower
Ocean swims. Sweaty hikes. Your skin has been through a lot this summer. Lock in moisture instantly with a hydrating full-body cleanser like Olay’s Ultra Moisture Body Wash with Shea Butter to give your skin a reset this season.
5. Drink Up!
One of your most powerful products for optimal skin doesn’t require a mirror. Keep your skin bouncy and plush from the inside out by staying hydrated throughout the day. Choose an aesthetically pleasing, refillable water bottle like any of these that you’ll love showing off at your next video conference.
