How to Transition Your Skincare Routine From Summer to Fall

pure raum's fall skincare tips

Why Does My Skin Get So Dry in the Fall?

In the fall and especially in the winter, the dip in humidity, cooler weather, hot showers, and indoor heaters all dry out the skin and damage the skin barrier. When the skin barrier is compromised, skin becomes sensitized, leading to cracks in the outer layer of the skin, loss of hydration, and eventually, inflammation. 

To soothe these negative seasonal effects on skin, a hydration-boosting skincare routine is critical and should also work to keep the skin barrier healthy. 

1. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

To go the extra mile to combat skin dehydration, layer on a nourishing ampoule, like the AHOHAW Inten-cure hydro complex ampoule, that will help replenish lost moisture, giving you long-term hydration and smoother, plumper skin.

2. Start Moisturizing More, but Don’t Bring in the Heavyweights Just Yet

You don’t want to do too much too soon—otherwise, what are you going to use in January when there’s a polar vortex going on and Snowpocalypse in the forecast? Your skin definitely needs a little more moisture now that the temperatures are falling again, but stick with something relatively lightweight for the time being.

We recommends a cream made with ceramides, which are the essential and healthy fatty acids that occur naturally in the skin but need to be replenished during the colder months. 

Those ceramides are especially crucial because they serve as a support system for your skin barrier. When the skin lacks ceramides, the barrier becomes compromised, resulting in dryness and irritation.

3. Add an Eye Cream 

That delicate skin around your eyes is the first to feel the impact of the changing seasons, which can manifest in puffiness or fine lines. Smoothing on a light eye cream or gel before bed should do the trick.

4. Start Exfoliating

Out with the old and in with the new, as the saying goes. In this case, the “old” is months of sweat, oil, and SPF. You’re probably in the clear if you’re already exfoliating on a regular basis, but if not, it’s not a bad time to start giving yourself a weekly (gentle) scrub-down.

5. Add a Boost of Vitamin C

Before diving into our fall regimen, we have to assess summer’s mark on our skin. Vitamin C helps to repair any summer skin damage, such as dark skin and uneven skin tone. Adding a vitamin C–rich formula helps treat fine lines and wrinkles, as well as the appearance of sun-stressed skin, and protects skin from free radical environmental damage.

6. Continue Using Sunscreen

Just because those tanning, chilling on the beach days are over, it doesn't mean that sunscreen should be tossed aside. Sunscreen should be used at all times because it generally helps decrease the incoming UV radiation

Your only change might be choosing something a bit more lightweight since you’ll be rotating heavier moisturizers and other formulas into your regimen (more on that later). But regardless, make sure you don’t skimp on that SPF number.
