Adjust Your Skincare Routine for Fall



Crisper air, pumpkin spiced lattes, leaves changing colors, and the best part, getting to bust out your favorite and stylish sweaters, scarves, and anything that screams “fall, here I come” Now that fall is upon us, the falling of leaves and temp are not the only changes creeping in that you may notice. Is your skin feeling a bit itchier and more flakey? We all know that as we say goodbye to one season and welcome another, our bodies shift like the seasons, skin included. Time to clean out our beloved skincare and beauty arsenal and lay to rest our summer fun products and bring out our super hydrators and protectors for the cooler temps ahead.


Hey, it's a good thing, you can also go shopping for some super stylish outfits. Read on to learn how to Adjust Your Skincare Routine for Fall.

What Happens to Our Skin Come Fall?

Your skin is opted to feel drier and more sensitive than usual due to the brisk temps and air accompanying the shift from summer to fall. Since your skin is in a more compromised state than expected, you will notice redness, irritation, and my personal favorite blotchiness, set in more visible than before. Oh, and that last part was a joke. Anyways, the cooler temps deplete our skin big time of its hydration, leaving it super thirsty and making it more drab-looking instead of fab.


You may see a few rough and dry patches set in. No one likes this look, and it's certainly uncomfortable. Have no fear; personalized skincare is here! More on this in a bit.  


Not is all doom and gloom, and there are things you can do to lessen the effects of fall's colder temps and what it does to your delicate and beautiful skin.  

It's like changing up your wardrobe for the new season. Swap out a few skincare products, and you are good to go. And if you are not familiar with personalized skincare products, then now is the time to learn. NOT only will this save you time and money, but come this time next year, you will not have to swap out skincare products since you will have one unique skincare formula tailored to your skincare needs.


Therefore, keep these few points in mind while taking out those awesome sweaters, boots, scarves, and oh-so-cute leggings.

Gentler is Better

Now is the perfect time for evaluating your daily skincare regime to see what you need to swap out of your beauty and skincare arsenal or sadly cut out. Don't worry if you need to say farewell to a favorite friend; you will see them the following season.  


We already know the crisp air wreaks havoc on our skin, leaving it flaking, cracking, irritated, and just one hot mess. Due to this reason, it is vital to cut out any product that can be rough since your skin will be more vulnerable and apt to inflammation and irritation.


With the change in weather if you develop dry or dehydrated skin, try switching to a milky cleanser and toner that won't strip your skin of any oils. Gentle and milky cleansers are a fantastic way to clean your skin, making it feel not so dried out. However, if you don't feel your face is totally clean, try adding in an oil-based cleanser as well to ensure all the impurities come off your skin's surface.

No matter the season, just like your SPF, your moisturizer should be your BFF. Get into the habit of using one for your morning and nighttime skincare routines. This can help you stay ahead of the possible cracking, itching, and flaking of your gorgeous face.


Want to make sure that your thirsty fall skin gets in its much-needed hydrations?? Think about going from that lighter, gel moisturizer from summer to a heavier and thicker one, you know ones that make the beautiful texture shots for #Texturetuesday? Make the change to your nighttime routine to ensure that your skin drinks up all that heavenly goodness by morning.




Think about adding in a powerful custom night serum with prebiotics made from a harmonious blend of Alpine active organic botanicals that will work throughout the night to replenish your skin. If you are not familiar with probiotics in skincare, make sure to check out our blog, What is Prebiotic Skincare!”


Ladies, another thing to keep in mind due to the chilly temps is to moisturize your entire body and not just your face. The whole body's hydration levels are super low in the colder air. Make sure that after you hop out of the shower, apply moisturizer on to your entire body to guarantee your skin stays smooth, supple and avoids irritation when you head out to your favorite fall festivities.


Keep your body hydrated on the inside by drinking enough water each day, which in turn can help your skin also feel and look its absolute best.  


Get in Your Vitamin C

When summer months end and the weather become more relaxed, I do not know about you, but I tend to start loading up on my Vitamin C to avoid getting sick. Does it work? I do not know, but that seems to be the norm and suggests keeping us healthy. Then shouldn't the same school of thought follow our skin health? Maybe we should include vitamins in our #skinhealth for fall. Vitamin C is full of antioxidants and will push your skin's defenses. Having healthy skin gives it a natural barrier that keeps it fabulous while maintaining the excellent stuff and kicking it out. Including Vitamin C in your skincare regime improves the skin's defenses and provides antioxidant assistance. Vitamin C can reinvigorate your skin cells, giving you clear and glowing skin. Choose this as a main ingredient for your own custom facial cream when you choose personalize skincare.
