Mother Nature, sis, why are you so late with the consistently cool temps and ground full of leaves?

So, I’m sharing my 3 tips on how to successfully transition your skincare from summer to fall. Keep reading to get all the tea.
Tips on Transitioning Skincare Each Season:
- Keep it Simple (at first) – for the first couple of weeks, just use a simple, safe face wash and follow it up with a gentle moisturizer. Only use products you know your skin loves. You can never go wrong with Cetaphil cleanser, which is good cleanser for most skin types.
- Facial – Since you’re keeping it simple by just using a face wash and moisturizer, this is great time to get a deep cleaning facial. Facials are great way to get your skin into a pristine and squeaky clean before you start reintroducing it to new products and ingredients.
- Assess Away – Now that you’ve simplified your skincare routine to the basic and got you skin cleaned out, start paying attention to your skin needs. Is your skin beginning to look dull? That means you might want to add a Vitamin C serum to your routine. Skin looking dry and saggy? Find a nice hydrating moisturizer with collagen or retinol.
