Here we are again, in that weird transitional phase between the hot and heavy days of summer and the cooler, drier days of fall. Early autumn and late spring seem to be the times of year when my skin is at its most rebellious. Spots start showing up out of nowhere overnight, and I always have trouble finding the root of the problem.
I have combination skin, so while some parts of my face become parched extremely quickly, others are oily no matter what.
This imbalance becomes so much more apparent in transitional seasons because some days feel more like summer, and within 24 hours we can drop 40 degrees (thanks, Colorado). This leaves me and my skin wondering which way is up, which can be very frustrating.
To try to keep my disobedient complexion under control, my fall skincare regime is different from any other season based on what my skin needs the most.
The last bit and one that I often feel is slightly overlooked is the facial roller. Add one of these to your arsenal and you'll notice changes in your jawline and cheeks. It's become somewhat of a secret weapon for me.
- The gentle cleanser and makeup remover - Evolue Gentle Cleanser. Soft and luxurious feeling while still doing a great job!
- The overnight miracle - Allies of Skin Bright Future Overnight Facial because let's face it, this is really just a lazy girl's guide to good skincare. (Don't forget to try the Molecular Savior Mist, as they work perfectly in unison)
- The ever important eye cream - Dermalogica Stress Positive Eye Lift because if you're like me, you don't sleep half as much as you should. This is the best product I've found for easing those dark circles under your tired eyes.
- The spritz of moisture when time is nonexistant, but the air is still dry - Tatcha Dewy Skin Mist. This is probably the one product I've been using the longest and I don't ever see myself switching. I love everything about this mist, from the scent to the long lasting moisture minus the excessive shine.
How will you be getting ready for the colder months ahead?
