As summer fades away, it's time to start preparing your skin for the cooler months ahead. No matter what your complexion type is— dry, oily, combination, or sensitive— fall brings new skincare challenges that require special attention. In this article, we will cover all of the basics on how to transition your skincare routine from summer to fall: why you should take specific measures during this season and which essential products you need. Get ready to learn everything you need to know in order to ensure your skin stays healthy and radiant!
COMMON SKIN PROBLEMS IN FALL
The change in weather and humidity levels during autumn can cause a range of skin issues. One of the most common problems is dryness, as the cooler air tends to be drier and sucks moisture out of the skin. This can lead to flakiness, tightness, and itchiness.
Additionally, spending the summer months in the sun takes a toll on skin. UV rays are one of the main factors in the appearance of dark spots, which are the worst nightmare of anyone who wants a flawless complexion.
Some people may also experience breakouts during fall due to the accumulation of dead skin cells and dirt that can clog pores.
SKINCARE INGREDIENTS AND PRODUCTS RECOMMENDED FOR FALL
To combat these problems, you may want to switch to skincare products that provide more nourishment and protection to the skin. Look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid and glycerin, which help to retain moisture and hydrate skin. You can also use a facial essence in addition to your moisturizer to provide an extra layer of hydration.
To combat dark spots, choose targeted products with ingredients like Vitamin C and glabridin (glabridin (liquorice root extract).
If you have combination or oily acne-prone skin, make sure to use an exfoliator to remove dead skin cells and unclog pores to prevent breakouts.
FALL SKINCARE ROUTINE TIPS
Here are recommended steps to address the specific skin issues you may have during fall.
1. HYDRATE, HYDRATE, HYDRATE
To tackle skin dryness in the fall, look no further than our HYDRA collection, which consists of hydrating skincare products that integrate the power of 5 hyaluronic acids for hydrated and plumped skin.
HYDRA-HYAL SERUM is an anti-aging serum concentrated with five types of hyaluronic acid to hydrate, smooth, and intensely plump the skin. The refreshing gel-like texture instantly soaks in without stickiness and provides 24-hour hydration.*
Pair it with our HYDRA-HYAL CREAM, an anti-aging face cream combines the power of five hyaluronic acids for hydrated and plumped skin while preventing signs of skin aging. 97% of women saw instantly smoothed, revitalized, and more luminous skin.**
Don’t forget about the delicate skin on your lips. A nourishing and plumping lip treatment, like NUTRI-FILLER LIPS, will restore radiance to dry or damaged lips from spending time in the summer sun.
2. HEAL POST-SUMMER SUN SKIN DAMAGE
To tackle dark spots from all that time in the sun, incorporate our 3-step anti-dark spot skincare collection, SKIN-UNIFY, into your daily routine.
SKIN-UNIFY INTENSIVE serum contains several active ingredients that help visibly reduce dark spots like Vitamin C, glabridin (liquorice root extract), and "Rainbow" algae extract complex.
Pair it with our SKIN-UNIFY face cream, which contains the same anti-dark spot ingredients, to even out complexions and restore the skin's radiance.
Finish with our SKIN-UNIFY RADIANCE illuminating anti-dark spot fluid to regain an even complexion while highlighting key areas of the face and giving you an instant glow.
3. ADD AN ESSENCE TO YOUR DAILY ROUTINE
Use an essence daily to provide a deeper level of hydration and nourishment to the skin. An essence like NCEF-ESSENCE is a great way to get the most out of your other skincare products and add extra hydration and nourishment into your daily skincare routine.
4. EXFOLIATE AND USE A MASK WEEKLY
Exfoliate once or twice a week to help remove dead skin cells and promote cell turnover, which can improve skin texture and tone. After exfoliating, use a mask to nourish and hydrate the skin.
Remove dead skin cells with our SCRUB & MASK, a dual-exfoliator that reveals smoother, fresher-looking skin. Once the scrub is finished, the mask’s texture transforms into an active skincare mousse: oxygen microbubbles are thus freed to allow suffocating skin to breathe.
If you need to tackle dryness, stock up on HYDRA-FILLER MASK, a hyaluronic acid sheet mask to moisturize and visibly plump skin in 15 minutes.
If you have combination to oily blemish-prone skin, then use AGE-PURIFY MASK, which has a formula enriched with micro-peeling acids and zinc to act on the appearance of pores, shine, and blemishes, while hyaluronic acid & peptides offer superior hydration that smooths the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
5. TREAT YOUR SKIN PRE-EVENT
If you have upcoming events like parent-teacher conferences, halloween parties, and thanksgiving dinners, you’re probably feeling some stress this season. Treat the impacts of stress on your skin pre-event with a treatment focused on improving overall skin quality like NCEF-SHOT. This 10-day treatment will get your skin back in peak condition ahead of any events and leading into the drier fall and winter months.
By switching up your skincare routine and using products with nourishing and protective ingredients, you can keep your skin healthy and glowing all year long.
