Labor Day has come & gone and you know what the means. Fall is approaching! Fall is by far one of my favorite seasons! Not only does the weather change, but I get to layer up and creating trending outfits. But, let’s not forget, our wardrobe shouldn’t be the only thing that changes with the seasons.
As the warm weather makes way for chillier temperatures and lower humidity, your skincare needs an update to adapt to the upcoming change. A couple of times a year, it's important to switch out the products that are not ideal for the current season. You have to pick the right products for the right time.
The best part about switching routine for the fall is that it will last you through winter as well! So, get ready to pack up those lightweight formulas in favor of products focused on hydration. You’ll want to find ways to combat visible evidence of sun damage that may have occurred over the summer months. With these easy steps, you can keep your skin looking fresh and glowing all year long!
First Step: Skin Cleanser
The best place to start is with the first step of your skincare routine, your facial cleanser. We recommend to switch out water-based cleansers for creamy or gel formulas like our Vitamin C Cleanser. It’s a gentle, anti-aging cleanser that deeply cleanses pores and feeds the skin powerful antioxidants, Vitamin C and Aloe Vera. It draws away toxins and impurities for fresher, brighter skin.
Keep a Healthy Complexion with a Toner
Keep your skin hydrated and don’t go a day without using a refreshing Face Mist Toner! Our USDA Organic Moroccan Rose Water Toner softens the skin and refines the appearance of pores for a healthy-looking complexion. It cleanses the skin, helping to clear it of surface debris, pollution particles, and residual impurities while leaving it feeling refreshed and prepped to receive the full benefits of the skincare ritual to follow.
Serums for Fine Lines and Aging
Since hydration is the name of the game when it comes to fall and winter skincare, introduce a hydrating skincare serum into your routine between cleansing and moisturizing. To reverse the damage that the summer may have caused, our Vitamin C Serum is the perfect serum for overall protection. It’s a potent, multipurpose serum that combines breakthrough anti-aging ingredients to help visibly minimize fine lines/ wrinkles and reduce the appearance of age spots and discoloration. It boosts collagen production, fights inflammation, and helps damaged skin heal.
Avoid Dark Circles with Eye Cream
Using an eye cream is a necessary step in your skincare routine, whether you have dark circles, puffiness, or a few fine lines. Our Intensive Youth Eye Gel is an anti-wrinkle gel infused with antioxidants to block free radicals and visibly reduce fine lines, dark circles, and puffiness. This eye gel smooths the appearance of wrinkles with Matrixyl 3000, a powerful ingredient that nearly doubles the production of collagen and protects skin against wrinkle-causing free radicals.
Now that we have your skincare routine down packed, here are a few extra tips to keep in mind for a healthy complexion thought out the summer!
Deep Cleanse with Face Masks
Face masks allow you to give yourself a spa-like facial in the comfort of your home while incorporating an important skincare step: exfoliation. You can add a weekly multi-masking routine into your schedule with our Dead Sea Mud Mask formulated with bentonite clay. It removes dead skin cells, dirt, and toxins while absorbing excess oil; revealing radiant and healthy-looking skin. You may also use our Peel Off Mask as a spot treatment to get rid of pesky blackheads and dead skin, perfect for the T-Zone area.
Upgrade Your Moisturizer
Like your cleanser, your moisturizer should upgrade as the air gets more drying. Lack of moisture in your skin can cause an overproduction of oi, which can lead to breakouts and blemishes. We recommend to start adding a few drops of Radha Beauty 100% Pure Castor Oil into your moisturizer. This ensures that your face not only gets the hydration it needs but that it’s really locked in when skin is exposed to the chill it forgot about in the summer.
Stay Hydrated with a Humidifier
As your home gets cozier and homely, there’s a good chance your skin is getting thirstier and drier. Our Radha Beauty Sea Jewel Humidifier disperses a fine mist into the air, and it’s ultra-quiet making it ideal to have on while you sleep. The Sea Jewel Humidifier is great for tabletops due to its convenient size. The humidifier can emit a soothing cool mist and creates a better home environment for those suffering from dry air, allergies, and dry skin.
As always, remember, everyone's skin reacts differently to different products. As with any skincare product, we suggest doing a patch test first. Before starting to use a new product, place a small amount on the inside of your elbow and wait 48 to 72 hours. If you notice no redness, swelling, itching, or burning on that spot, it is okay for you to use.
