Summer to Fall Skincare Routine: Six Things You Need to Know
Change up your cleanser
Our skin gets more oily in the summer and drier in the fall and winter. That’s why we need to change up our cleanser depending on the seasonal change.
As the key to a healthy and plumped skin starts from cleansing, the first step of your everyday skincare routine, we suggest a cleanser that hydrates your skin well while doing the cleansing job right – just like COSRX Hydrium Triple Hyaluronic Moisturizing Cleanser. This gentle, daily facial wash contains hyaluronic acid and panthenol and removes makeup and impurities while restoring hydration levels and strengthening the skin barrier.
Avoid harsh exfoliation
As the weather change makes skin become drier and more easily irritated, it is important to change to a more gentle exfoliator to relieve dull and flaky skin.
We recommend SOME BY MI AHA BHA PHA 30 Days Miracle Truecica Clear Pad as these gentle yet effective exfoliating pads deeply cleanse excess sebum and impurities within pores, leaving your skin brighter, smoother and healthier!
It’s time for a richer moisturizer
While your moisturiser keeps your skin hydrated in the summer time, you will need to change to a richer and heavier moisturiser for the colder season as skin gets drier and more sensitive than summer.
One of our top picks is KLAIRS Rich Moist Soothing Cream – this moisturizing and soothing cream deeply penetrates into the skin to provide instant and long-lasting moisture. With its gentle and nourishing formula, it also effectively strengthens skin’s barrier and improves overall skin complexion. Suitable for all skin types, especially sensitive skin.
Start adding a good sleeping mask into your routine
One of the best ways to recover your skin from external stressors from the day time is a nourishing sleeping mask which replenishes the skin with moisture overnight allowing you to wake up with dewy, hydrated and plumped skin.
We adore LANEIGE Water Sleeping Mask as this overnight mask provides the skin with deep and intense hydration. Made with a Probiotic Complex and infused with plant derived sqalene, it locks in hydration and strengthens the skin barrier resulting in a smooth, plump and dewy complexion. Apply this in a massaging motion as the last step of your PM routine.
SPF even on the colder days
The weather might be getting cooler but it's important to always wear SPF, even on cloudy days! While total sun exposure is unavoidable, we can certainly minimize the damage of harmful UVA and UVB rays with proper protection. Wearing a high factor SPF everyday can help prevent aging signs such as pigmentation, wrinkles and fine lines.
We love using BEAUTY OF JOSEON Relief Sun: Rice + Probiotics as our daily sunscreen as its soft and creamy texture provides moisture even on the dryer autumn days with strong UVA and UVB protection. As a chemical sunscreen it absorbs easily, leaving behind no whitecast or greasiness, which makes it a great sunscreen to wear underneath makeup.
Give equal love to your body as well
We often focus on our face and neglect the importance of body care. In fact, any parts of your body can become dry and unhealthy due to moisture loss and damage if you don’t manage it well. To have truly healthy and glowy skin, it is equally important to care for your body as much as you care for what you are putting on your face.
In particular, your skin can become really dry due to weather change. Hence, we need a good body care routine to keep your skin well hydrated, smooth and to reverse the signs of ageing. We suggest BEYOND Total Recovery Creamy Body Wash. Enriched with Hibiscus Flower Extract and Ceramides, it adds and retains essential moisture as it nourishes dehydrated skin.
Apply and massage your body with Vitamin-rich BEYOND Total Recovery Intense Body Emulsion after shower which caters for dry skin that needs intensive moisture and nourishment. Formulated with Squalene Oil, Jojoba Oil and Camellia Japonica Seed Oil, it provides deep hydration to the skin and improves elasticity, leaving it smooth, soft and delicately scented.
