How to Transition Your Skin Care Routine from Summer to Fall How to Transition Your Skin Care Routine from Summer to Fall How to Transition Your Skin Care Routine from Summer to Fall

When the seasons start to change, you may want to consider switching up your skin care routine as well. For instance, you may have found that a lightweight moisturizer was all you needed during the summer months but that your skin is thirsty for more hydration once the air gets colder and drier. But putting together a fall skin care routine doesn’t have to be too daunting of a task. Just consult our nine skin care tips below to help transition your skin care routine from summer to autumn.

Fall Skin Care Tip #1: Try a Different Moisturizer

When the air is dry during the cooler months, you may notice that your skin feels drier, too. In that case, consider stashing your summertime moisturizer and trying a different one for fall—and remember to apply morning and night. The L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Dry Skin is formulated with hyaluronic acid and aloe vera water to help provide long-lasting hydration. Immediately, skin appears radiant and more luminous. According to The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), the best time to apply a hydrating cream or balm is immediately after washing, when your skin is able to lock in the most moisture.

Fall Skin Care Tip #2: Change Up Your Cleanser

Cleansing your complexion should be something you do daily—no matter the season. This fall, try a clay cleanser on for size. The L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Cleanser, L’Oréal Paris Exfoliate & Refine Cleanser, and L’Oréal Paris Purify & Mattify Cleanser are formulated to seamlessly transform from clay to mousse and remove everyday impurities from the surface of skin without over-drying. Daily, squeeze your cleanser of choice into your hands and add water to transform it from clay to mousse. Gently massage it onto your face using circular motions, then rinse thoroughly and pat dry.

Fall Skin Care Tip #3: Keep Summer Vibes Going with a Faux Tan

You don’t have to put away your self-tanner as soon as summer ends. Using self-tanner is a great way to get a bronzed look in the fall. The L’Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze™ collection features everything from towelettes to mist to serum to lotion. Once you’ve decided which kind of self-tanner to use, make sure to exfoliate and moisturize first to help ensure the color goes on smoothly and evenly. Then go on and show off your golden glow!

Fall Skin Care Tip #4: Continue to Take Sun Protection Seriously

Sun protection shouldn’t just be something you think about when you’re headed to the beach. In fact, your sun care routine should be year-round—rain or shine. 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). In addition to that, you should also limit your amount of time in the sun (especially during the peak hours of 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.), seek shade, and cover up in long sleeves, pants, a broad-brimmed hat, and UV-blocking sunglasses. Fall shopping trip, anyone?

Fall Skin Care Tip #5: Add an Overnight Face Mask to Your Routine

Another way to help hydrate (and pamper!) your skin this fall is by upgrading your nighttime beauty routine. Before bed, reach for an overnight face mask. Overnight face masks are different than traditional face masks in that you leave them on your skin. The L’Oréal Paris Triple Power™ Overnight Mask is a luxurious, hydrating leave-on creamy face mask that forms a virtual protective mask to cradle skin. Immediately, skin feel hydrated and looks more radiant. Every evening, apply it prior to sleep on cleansed skin. Use alone or as the last step after your eye cream or serum. Smooth it over your face, neck, and jawline until absorbed and leave on overnight to see results.

Fall Skin Care Tip #6: Play with Facial Oil

While summer was in full swing, we have a feeling that the last thing you wanted to do was apply facial oil to your complexion. But come fall, you may find that a facial oil is exactly what your skin is craving. The L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Facial Oil Light is formulated with eight essential oils and leaves skin feeling nourished—with no greasy residue. Every morning and evening after cleansing, apply 4-5 drops of the oil onto the palm of your hand. With a finger, dab the oil in small dots onto cleansed skin. Smooth it onto your face, slowly and deeply, using the entire surface of your hands. Smooth it from nose to ears, eyebrows to hairline, and neck to jawline. Follow up with moisturizer if needed.

Fall Skin Care Tip #7: Give Yourself a DIY Facial

Your skin deserves some serious pampering, but a spa trip isn’t always in the cards. When that’s the case, opt to give your skin a treat at home. Pick a time when you can wind down, then break out your face masks. Instead of using just one, try multi-masking. This trendy technique involves applying different face masks onto different parts of your face at the same time, depending on your skin’s needs. Dry in one spot? Smooth on a hydrating mask. Oily in another? Coat your skin in a mattifying mask. It’s just that easy. For an added boost of spa-vibes, pop a couple of cucumber slices over your eyes and turn on the most relaxing music you can find. Talk about being as chill as a cucumber. To find the right face masks for your multi-masking experience, check out the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Face Mask line.

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 clay mask formula is enhanced with seaweed and can help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and oils and gently cleanse stressed areas.

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 clay mask formula is enhanced with charcoal and can help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and pollution, reduce the look of dull skin.

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. This clay mask formula is enhanced with red algae extract and can help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and oils, exfoliate dead skin cells from the surface of skin, and smooth the look of imperfections, and allow skin to breathe.

L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Purify & Mattify Face Mask: Day after day, impurities, dirt, makeup, and excess oils can build up on the skin, leaving your complexion looking overly oily. This clay mask formula is enhanced with eucalyptus leaf extract and can help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and oils from the surface of skin and reduce the look of excess shine.

Apply an even layer to clean, dry skin, then leave the masks on for 10-15 minutes and rinse off with lukewarm water. Use 2-3 times a week for best results.

Fall Skin Care Tip #8: Set Up a Humidifier

While there’s much fun to be had during the fall (Pumpkin picking! Hay rides! Apple cider!), you may notice the air getting drier—and you’ll probably be spending plenty of time indoors with the heat on. So, use a humidifier to add much-needed moisture to the air. Set one up in your bedroom and bring a portable one to the office.

Fall Skin Care Tip #9: Turn Down the Water Temp in the Shower

While the weather was hot and humid, a cold shower may have been your saving grace. As it becomes cooler outside, it can be tempting to start cranking the temperature up and enjoying super-steamy showers. There’s just one issue—bathing in hot water isn’t the best idea for your skin. The warmer water can strip your skin of essential oils, which can leave you feeling drier. That doesn’t mean you have to shower in totally frigid temperatures—lukewarm water will do just fine. If you still aren’t ready to totally switch up your shower routine, try limiting the amount of time you’re under the stream of hot water to just a few minutes.

Fall Skin Care Tip #10: Prep Your Skin with Primer

Primer may have been one of your go-to products during the summer months if you were hoping to help keep your makeup from slipping and sliding. That being said, primer can be useful in the fall, too. During the cooler months, put away your matte primer and opt for one that has a radiant finish instead. The L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Radiance Booster formula is infused with nourishing oils. The lightweight, non-greasy formula instantly brightens the look of your complexion for a radiant finish, smooths and evens skin, and provides long-lasting hydration.
