There’s a new season fast approaching—fall, if your memory is momentarily coming up short—and we’re happy to take that as an excuse to revamp our skin care routines. Whether you’re stocking up on new products or simply pulling forgotten favorites to the front of your medicine cabinet, now’s a great time to switch up your routine. That’s because as the weather changes, you may find that your skin care concerns are different than those you had during the summer. Not sure where to start? We’ve got you. We already handled the hard part—determining what may be missing from your current skin care roster. Here are seven skin care essentials to try this fall.

FALL SKIN CARE ESSENTIAL #1: FACE SCRUB

As the temperature drops and the air gets colder, you may notice that your complexion is starting to look a little, well, lackluster. That’s where a face scrub comes in! The L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Bright Reveal Brightening Daily Scrub Cleanser is formulated with gentle micro-pearls and glycolic acid to exfoliate dullness and impurities from the surface of your skin. Every morning and evening, lather the scrub into wet hands, gently massage it onto your skin in a circular motion, then rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat dry. Just make sure to follow up by applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher as directed, since alpha hydroxy acids like glycolic acid can increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun.

FALL SKIN CARE ESSENTIAL #2: CLEANSING WIPES

Fall often means going back to school or being on the receiving end of a steepening workload—two things that can seriously cut down on the amount of free time you have to do as you please at the end of the day. Meaning you probably won’t want to spend your precious free time removing your makeup. Still, it’s important to remind yourself that it’s worthwhile. Skipping makeup removal before bed can lead to clogged pores, which you undoubtedly want to avoid. Still, we understand the desire for an easier solution. Rather than being tethered to the sink for makeup removal, keep a pack of cleansing wipes, like the L’Oréal Paris Ideal Clean™ All Skin Types Makeup Removing Towelettes, handy by your bedside. As soon as you’re ready for some shuteye, sweep a towelette across your skin to cleanse. So simple!

FALL SKIN CARE ESSENTIAL #3: MOISTURIZER

OK, you’re probably tired of hearing us talk about moisturizer so often—but this is one skin care step you don’t want to skip, especially in the fall. If your skin feels drier this season, you may want to consider using a different facial moisturizer. Try a water-based formula, like any of the options from the L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius line. They’re all formulated with hyaluronic acid and aloe vera water to help provide long-lasting hydration.

L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Oily Skin: In normal and oily skin, external factors such as pollution, UV rays, and excessive cleansing can damage skin’s moisture barrier, causing loss of moisture and an increase in oil production. As a result, your complexion can start to look overly shiny. This water-based moisturizer helps reduce the appearance of excess shine and has a matte finish.

L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Dry Skin: Normal and dry skin faces external factors such as pollution and UV rays that can damage the skin’s moisture barrier, increasing loss of moisture and causing it to become drier. As a result, skin's surface loses it glow, becoming dull-looking. This water-based moisturizer envelops skin with moisture, improving the look of skin’s radiance.

L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Extra Dry Skin: Your skin has a very fragile moisture barrier that can be easily damaged by external factors such as pollution and UV rays. Skin consequently loses its ability to retain moisture, becoming easily dehydrated, feeling tight and uncomfortable. This water-based moisturizer envelops skin with moisture, providing comfort.

FALL SKIN CARE ESSENTIAL #4: EYE CREAM

Missing the relaxing days of summer? Treat your delicate under-eye area to some much-needed pampering this fall by incorporating an eye cream into your daily skin care routine. The L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Triple Power™ Eye Treatment is a luxurious, lightweight cream that helps brighten the look of your under-eye area. Every morning and evening after cleansing, massage it gently around your eye area until thoroughly absorbed.

FALL SKIN CARE ESSENTIAL #5: MOISTURIZER FORMULATED WITH BROAD-SPECTRUM SUNSCREEN

If you’re thinking of skimping on sunscreen as soon as summer passes, think again. Cloudy skies, cool weather, and days where you can’t spot the sun don’t count as valid reasons to go without sun protection. According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), you should apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher daily as directed and reapply at least every two hours (or immediately after swimming or sweating. Try the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Bright Reveal Brightening Day Lotion SPF 30, which is a moisturizer that also contains SPF. Hold up, you aren’t done just yet though! In addition to applying and reapplying as directed, you should also limit your time in the sun (especially between 10 AM and 2 PM), seek shade, and cover up exposed areas.

FALL SKIN CARE ESSENTIAL #6: SELF-TANNER

Carry summer vibes into fall by using a self-tanner to maintain your sun-kissed look. A gradual self-tanner, like the L’Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze™ Hydrating Self-Tanning Milk Medium, will be perfect for achieving a natural-looking tan long after the sun has set on summer. To use, prep your skin by cleansing, exfoliating, and applying an oil-free moisturizer. Then, apply the sunless tanner evenly all over your body. Be sure to use it sparingly around drier areas of your skin such as your ankles, knees, and elbows. When you’re sure you’ve hit every spot, wash your hands, then let your skin dry completely before getting dressed or putting on makeup. Use the self-tanner daily until you have reached your desired level of tan.

FALL SKIN CARE ESSENTIAL #7: FACE MASKS

It feels pretty safe to say that we’ve all dealt with holiday-related stresses, and fall just so happens to be prime holiday time. So, think about making time to de-stress and indulge in an at-home spa day, complete with one of the following face masks.

If you have an overly oily complexion…try the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Purify & Mattify Face Mask. Day after day, impurities, dirt, makeup, and excess oils can build up on the surface of your skin, leaving your complexion looking greasy. Formulated with eucalyptus leaf extract, this face mask can help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and oils and reduce the look of excess shine.

If your skin needs gentle cleansing…try the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Clear & Comfort Face Mask. Over time, harsh cleansing can be drying and sensitizing, leaving skin feeling uncomfortable. As a result, skin needs cleaning that is effective yet gentle. This face mask, formulated with seaweed, can help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and oils and gently cleanse stressed areas.

If your skin has uneven texture…try the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Exfoliate & Refining Face Mask. Day after day, dead skin cells can accumulate on the surface of your skin, leaving your complexion feeling rough. Formulated with red algae extract, this face mask can help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and oils, exfoliate dead skin cells, smooth the look of imperfections, and allow skin to breathe.

If you have dull-looking skin…try the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Face Mask. Over time, harsh environmental factors like pollution and debris can damage skin, leaving your complexion looking dull and tired. This face mask, formulated with charcoal, can help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and pollution and reduce the look of dull skin.

If you have a mix of complexion concerns…don’t limit yourself to just one face mask. You can multi-mask! Wondering when to try this trendy masking technique? Here’s a convenient list: The 7 Best Times to Multi-Mask.
