Transitioning Your Skincare Routine from Summer to Fall

  • August 17, 2022

We know you love the easiness that comes with summer. Beach days, sun-kissed skin, natural highlights and a simple skincare regimen, but as fall rolls in, it’s time to consider swapping your summer products for the seasonal skincare essentials. Below the professionals of Faces Med Spa guide you on how to transition your skincare routine from summer to fall. 

Switch to a Cream-Based Cleanser
During summer, you may find yourself opting for gel or foam facial cleansers because of the consistency. These cleansers make wiping away dirt, sunscreen and oil a breeze, but they can often dry out your face during the colder months. During fall and winter, the skin generates less oil than during the summer. A cream cleanser will help keep your skin moisturized without feeling greasy. 

Use a Hyaluronic Acid Serum
When combining a hyaluronic acid serum with your daily moisturizer it can penetrate the skin more deeply which hydrates your skin more than moisturizer alone. A hyaluronic acid serum not only deeply hydrates the skin but also decreases fine lines and wrinkles. 

Swap Your Lightweight Moisturizer for a Thicker One
The summer humidity works in your skin’s favor because it is rich in moisture. The colder months can often dry out your skin so we recommend swapping your lightweight moisturizer for a heavier one to help keep your skin hydrated and plump. 

Incorporate Retinol
We recommend avoiding retinol during the summer because it increases the UV sensitivity of your skin. Retinol is a great product that can help with hyperpigmentation and sun spots. We recommend starting off by gradually incorporating it into your routine. Start with 1-2 nights a week, working your way up to every other day.

Continue Using SPF 30 Daily
Sunscreen should be a regular habit, even if you don’t plan to spend your entire day in the sun. Mineral sunscreens block UVA and UVB rays. UV rays enter the skin more readily under cloudy conditions, increasing your chance of developing skin cancer and intensifying the aging process.
