Whenever Summer gets to an end, we always look forward to Fall. The weather gets a little crisp, the leaves start turning color and we tend to wear more threads than usual. What most people don’t realize is that when seasons change, your skin care should too. Even with us being oily, our skin tends to get drier when the cold front comes in. Make sure to change your routine each season to get that healthy glow 365 days a year.
For Summer, we tend to sweat more and our face is often feeling oiler than most times. We usually end up using a deep cleanser during these hot months to get a squeaky clean, bright complexion. As Fall and Winter sets in, you want to switch to a mild cleanser to avoid excessive dryness in your skin. For people that have dry to extremely dry, opt for a cleansing oil and only wash your face once per day.
Our Pick | Laneige Multi Cleanser (AMOREPACIFIC)
This is an amazing Korean cleanser that does 4-in-1: Removes makeup, sunscreen, exfoliates and cleanses at once. It’s a mild plant-based cleanser that contains papain enzymes and the exfoliating enzymes are extracted from papaya fruit. All you need is a coin-sized amount and it melts off your makeup feeling clean and it also makes your skin brighter.
When it starts getting cooler and colder, our skin tends to get drier, which creates dry patches. Have you ever wondered why your skin still has dry patches when you have already put your moisturizer on? Your skin is telling you that you’re not using a heavy enough moisturizer. Those light moisturizers are great for Summer months. So for Fall and Winter, invest in a great, richer moisturizer. Who likes the look of seeing your makeup crusted in those dry patches of your skin? It’s not a great look, nor healthy. Remember- the goal is to have that healthy glow all year-round. Moisturize twice a day, morning and night.
Our Pick | Marie Veronique Organics
Face oils are making a huge come back this season. It’s all about using a face oil! Many people have the misconception of this and saying no way to putting oil on their face. Let’s just say- when you try it, you will kick yourself that you haven’t been using it sooner. (That’s exactly what we’re doing and we have oily skin!) We tried MVO Face Oil and now we are hooked… This anti-aging oil penetrates the top layers of the skin, lubricating and protecting so it can retain moisture and repel environmental assaults. It even dissolves congestion that clogs pores. Your skin looks so amazing after applying the face oil and your skin is softer, smoother, radiant, glowing, your wrinkles are less visible and you will have fewer blemishes. We love that it’s a natural blend of plant oils and saturated fats that deliver powerful results to your skin. It even smells wonderful!
Many of you think that since the sun isn’t out to play for Fall and Winter, you don’t need to protect your skin and wear sunscreen. WRONG! The rays are still behind those dark gray clouds and will still cause damage to your skin. Remember to wear a sunscreen or even better yet, wear a tinted moisturizer to prevent premature aging, lines, wrinkles and our worst enemy- skin cancer.

Have you seen when people have dry, chapped and cracked lips? It looks painful, unattractive and non-kissable right? Make sure at night before you go to bed, wear a rich lip balm that contains shea butter to moisturize your lips. During the day, try to stay away from super matte lipsticks. Go for lipsticks that are moisturizing and hydrating for the lips.

When it comes to showing your age, your hands are one of the visible signs. (Eyes are the most- least elasticity in the skin) Make sure to soften and butter up those hands. A women should always have one near her nightstand and one in her bag. Moisturize! Moisturize! Moisturize! Winter is crucial for those bare hands.
