The transitioning from summer to fall means the humidity slowly becomes lower and the weather gets colder which means your skin is slowly going to get drier. For the the dry skin girlies, its time to brace up!!! Here are some skincare tips for all skin type to help you through fall as we slowly welcome the cold winter.
Select a good moisturizer: Moisturizers are products that lubricates the skin, supplies moisture to the skin, maintain and restore skin flexibility. Good moisturizers also prevent the evaporation of moisture and smoothen the skin. A good moisturizer should be formulated with humectants, occlusive and emollients. When purchasing a moisturizer this fall, look out for moisturizers that contains Squalene, mineral oil, lanolin, ceramides, glycerin, lactate, propylene glycol, lactate. A great tip for the dry skin girlies (go for thicker creams and extra moisturizing sunscreens like The Black Girl Sunscreen SPF 30 – which contains great emollients like avocado and jojoba oil.)
Incorporate hydrators/humectants: Start adding hydrating toners, essences or serums that contains humectants like lactic acid, Sodium hylauronate, glycerin, centella,sea moss, hyaluronic acid, snail filtrate, green tea. Humectants pulls moisture from the atmosphere and below the skin when the humidity is lower than 80%. Hydrators are essential as they will aid in reducing inflammation, plumping the skin and preventing dullness.
Book your peel session: This is the time to get that peel you couldn’t get during the summer. Book a consultation with your aesthetician to find out the right peel for your current skin concern and to get your skin prepped. PS: Do not get peels done at home!!
Lip care: Protect your lips with a lip spf during the day and moisturize with a lip balm or oil at night.
Up your body care game: Use nourishing body cleansers that comes in oil to gel form to soothe and protect skin. Moisturize with a hydrating body serums and or moisturizers..look out for ingredients with colloidal oat meal, lactic acid and urea. Seal in moisture to create a barrier on your skin to prevent moisture loss with thick oils like coconut oil, avocado oil and butters and balms (especially those that contain petrolatum).
Avoid over cleansing: Limit Cleansing time to 30-60 seconds. Avoid hot baths and showers stick to lukewarm water. Switch to gentler exfoliants like Lactic acid and mandelic acid. Wear your Sunscreen everyday, All day.

Why does your skin care routine need to change in the fall?
Finding the perfect beauty regimen is hard. And if you’ve finally perfected your summer skincare routine, the last thing you probably want to do is start over. But updating your routine for the changing seasons is essential because even though it’s not as sunny, sun damage is never too far away.
Sun protection is a major part of every skincare regimen, even during the fall and winter months. Your skin tends to dry out as the weather cools down, so you might experience more flakiness, tightness, and even irritation, making hydrating super important. For this reason, having a proper skincare regimen is the best way to combat the cold and protect your skin from potential damage.
Essential Tips for Fall Skincare
Luckily, it doesn’t take a lot of effort to care for your skin in the fall and winter. But if you’re feeling particularly lazy, you can follow these quick and easy tips instead. Take a look!
Apply Hydrating Cleansers & Serums
Cleansing is always the first step in every proper skincare routine. But unfortunately, many cleansers on the market contain ingredients that dry out your skin, which can potentially set back your skincare progress.
If you want to ward off dryness, be sure to choose cleansers and serums that are specially formulated for hydration. Look for ingredients such as glycerin or hyaluronic acid, which boost your skin’s ability to absorb and hold moisture as well as protect the skin barrier.
Use Moisturizing Lip Care for Dry Weather
Lip dryness is a frustrating problem that many people struggle with in the fall and winter. The cold, dry weather can do a number on your lips, leaving them cracked, peeling, and painful.
To avoid the frustration, you need a reliable moisturizing lip care product. And fortunately, our dual-action Make It Pop Lip Gloss is formulated with SPF 50 and hyaluronic acid for sun protection and hydration.
Opt for Richer & Thicker Moisturizers
After cleansing, moisturizing is usually the next step in any good fall skincare routine. Not all moisturizers are created equal, so it’s crucial to choose the right one for your skin type. For extra protection in the fall, shop for rich and thick moisturizers designed to lock in moisture.
Don’t Forget Your SPF
The sun might not shine as bright in the fall, but sun protection is important all year long, which is why sunscreen is a must for every season.
