Are You Following These Fall Skincare Rules?

Fall is officially here. And while we love sweater weather and all the autumnal activities it brings, it isn't always as agreeable with our skin. That means that some beauty preparations are in order, most of which revolve around switching up our skin care to reflect the rise of cooler, more drying weather. 

Cold weather can wreak havoc on your skin, leaving it dry, dull, and even flaky. So to ready your skin for the harsher weather ahead, we put together this roundup of tips so keep reading!

#1. Switch to a creamier cleanser
Your salicyclic acid face wash probably left you feeling squeaky clean this summer. But with cooler temperatures and lower humidity, your skin will benefit from something more hydrating & soothing this season. 

Sloane Inc's Vanilla Silk cleanser is a lightweight cream cleaanser that lifts away dirt, make up, and other impurities without striping the essential lipids the skin needs to stay healthy and hydrated. Helps to keep the skin clear and smooth textured thanks to a potent blend of French sea waters, botanical extracts, and gentle seaweed and sugar based exfoliants.

#2. Slowly switch up to more potent formulas
Switching to thicker, creamier moisturizers come fall can be an adjustment, especially if you have oily or acne-prone skin: you want to add that extra hydration when skin is more prone to dehydration, but you also don’t want toto do too much too soon—otherwise, what the heck 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—like a lightweight yet moisturizing formula rather than a heavy-duty cream—for the time being.

REN Flash Hydro-Boost Instant Plumping Emulsion

Formulated with hyaluronic acid and xylitol, REN's Flash Hydro-Boost instantly boosts water to skin to optimize hydration levels and visibly plump and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. Germ peptide from carob seed enables the transport and circulation of water, while ceramides from safflower oil and phospholipids from soybean strengthen the skin's barrier to prevent moisture loss. This lightweight emulsion can be added as an extra step in any skin care routine.

Youth To The People Kale + Spinach + Hyaluronic Acid Age Prevention Cream
Packed with green leafy superfoods, Youth to the People’s lightweight, multifunction moisture cream restores, rejuvenates, and conditions. Its light, whipped texture is quick absorbing, delivering antioxidants and phytonutrients to protect against free radicals, environmental stresses, and redness, while crosslinked hyaluronic acid hydrates and locks in your skin's natural moisture. The refreshing, subtle scent is naturally derived from the extracts.

#3. Book a Facial
This is important for a few reasons. Our skin goes through a cycle of shedding and renewal. While this cycle happens every 28 days, it’s aggravated more by seasonal changes. Aside from giving your complexion a deep cleansing and comprehensive reboot, an expert can also provide some personalized insight on how to deal with specific issues as the temperatures plunge.

The Sloane Spa's Classic Epicuren Facial resuscitates parched, fatigued or aged skin with an invigorating glycolic hot mask to get the sluggish micro-circulation and skin turnover going. A series of firming, revitalising and calming masks immediately follow to take advantage of the increased skin permeability to moisturise, nourish, rev up cellular metabolism and boost skin elasticity with the legendary Epicuren metadermabolic enzymes (also known lovingly by those in the know as “Liquid Gold”) for an instant jolt of energetic glow and a youthful bounce back.

#4. Don't neglect your body
Newsflash: your face isn’t the only part of your body that needs to be tended to. If you don’t have naturally dry skin that looks and feels like it needs moisture, you may not even be aware that you’re suffering from dryness. To keep skin smooth and healthy, we like to exfoliate with a dry brush before we hop in the shower and apply a body lotion or cream as soon as we get out. We’re longtime enthusiasts of Laura Mercier's Almond Coconut Body Butter. The cult favorite formula that smells remarkably like coconuts and absorbs quickly enough that you barely have to wait before you put your pants on. Basically, it’s the best.

#5. Dont ever skip sunscreen
No matter the season, sunscreen is an absolute must—just because summer days spent outdoors have ended doesn’t mean you can leave your sun protection behind. Developed with plastic surgeons, this innovative formula is your complexion perfection and sun protection in just one step. It gives your skin a boost of clinically shown hydration, while SPF 50+ broad-spectrum physical sunscreen protects against UVA and UVB rays, helping to prevent collagen damage and hyperpigmentation.

Ideal for every skin type, the universal color-correcting pigments even the appearance of all skintones.
