5 Essential Skincare Tips to Transition Your Skincare Routine from Summer to Fall

Oct 5, 2023

Hi Skincare Lovers,

I hope you're waking up to the aroma of a fresh cup of coffee with a splash of pumpkin spice or caramel and enjoying that brisk morning air! But if you're anything like me, you are running around trying to get everyone out the door and staying on schedule! Regardless of how your morning looks, ensuring your skin is well taken care of during these transitional months is essential! As the temperatures drop and the humidity lessens, our skin's needs start to change, and the routine that worked in the summer might not be as effective in the fall.

Here are our five tips to ensure your skin remains healthy and glowing as we transition into fall.

1. Cleanse with Care

Transitioning your cleanser is the first step in adapting your skincare routine. When the cool air moves in and the humidity moves out, your skin may require a milder approach to cleansing. We suggest using a cream or oil cleanser to remove makeup and massage gently to allow all the hydrating benefits to take place. 

Dolce Dew - Dolce Blue Cleansing Oil

Crystal's Recommendation: Dolce Dew - Dolce Blue Cleansing Oil

2. Deep Moisturization

Fall air can be dry and harsh, especially when we start to move away from the AC and turn on the heat. We recommend switching to a thicker moisturizer or even layering a hydrating serum under your regular cream to lock in moisture.

Dolce Dew - Enriched Cream +GF, Good Greens Antioxidant Facial Oil, and Dolce Blue Mask/Moisturizer

Crystal's Recommendation: Dolce Dew - Enriched Cream + GF, Good Greens Antioxidant Facial Oil, & Dolce Blue Mask/Moisturizer

*Fun Tip – put together the enriched cream with a drop of the facial oil at the end of your evening routine and lock in the other products for the deepest hydration!

3. Gentle Exfoliation

Exfoliation remains crucial during the fall season. This will help rejuvenate your skin and prepare it for the cold months ahead! 

Dolce Dew - Enzyme Glaze + Glow

Crystal's Recommendation: Dolce Dew - The Enzyme GLAZE + GLOW

4. Hydrating Vitamin C

As climate transitions, you should continue restoring the skin's barrier by incorporating a hydrating vitamin C serum. 

Dolce Dew - Daily Dose Vitamin C Serum

Crystal's Recommendation: Dolce Dew - Daily Dose Vitamin C Serum

5. Lip and Hand Care

The delicate skin on your lips and hands requires special attention during the fall transition. They can quickly become dry and chapped. Regularly apply a nourishing lip balm, and consider exfoliating your lips once a week! Also, remember to carry a hand cream in your bag!

Dolce Dew - Dewy Lips Nourishing Lip Balm   Montego Bay Rhythm Hand Cream

Crystal's Recommendation: Dolce Dew - Dewy Lips & Montego Hand Cream (available at Cucumber and Mint!)

Fall is a great time for self-care and awareness! While your skincare routine can help prepare your skin for the colder season, nourishing your skin from the inside is also VIP! Staying hydrated and drinking lots of water will also help you keep that GLOW! 

Stay radiant, friends, and enjoy this pumpkin-spiced season to the fullest!
