When the seasons change, particularly when the weather starts to turn cooler, you may notice a change in your skin. Those who experience dryness might notice it gets worse when fall arrives. If you have acne or sensitive skin, you may have more flare ups.
Since your skin changes throughout the year, it makes sense to change the products you use to deal with any skin concerns that crop up as the months and seasons change.
You don't need to swap out your entire skincare routine for new products, just a few tweaks here and there can help you glow all autumn and winter long.
Easy Fall Skincare Swaps For All Skin Types
Swap Foaming Cleansers for Milky Cleansers
Milky or cream cleansers are gentler on the skin and have moisture built right in.
Swap Astringent for Moisturizing Toner
Skipping your toner should never be an option – don’t sacrifice refined pores and balanced skin!
Swap Lightweight Moisturizers for Heavier Creams
You may need to step it up to a richer moisturizer or even add an oil concentrate to your moisturizer to combat the mega dryness of the fall and winter months.
Fall Skincare Swaps by Skin Type
If you have dry skin, it will likely become even more dry in the fall and winter. The combination of cold weather and indoor heating wreaks havoc on your skin – the drastic fluctuations in temperature causes skin to become more dry and more sensitive. Adding an overnight treatment, hydrating masque and/or facial oil into your routine will help soothe and nourish stubborn dry and flakey skin.
Use this treatment cream either as a masque or as a night treatment. The extracts derived from fresh linden and calendula plants deeply nourish and refresh the skin’s appearance, and fine herbal oils restore the look of youthfulness and elasticity.

Combination skin can become dehydrated when the weather is cold, which can trigger a skin imbalance. When your skin’s moisture barrier isn’t strong and healthy – a common occurrence for people who have combination skin – essential moisture is lost, causing dehydration that can lead to increased sensitivity, breakouts, dryness and excess oil production. Adding products to your skin regime that help maintain and protect your skin’s moisture barrier will help alleviate the symptoms often experienced in the fall.

Just because your skin is breakout-prone, doesn’t mean you won’t experience dryness. Plus, since skin produces more sebum in cold weather, and dry skin and sebum will clog pores, you may notice an increase in breakouts. Exfoliating with products that contain salicylic acid will help smooth and buff dry, rough skin and keep pores clear without over-drying. Also try adding a moisturizer specifically formulated for acne-prone skin will help hydrate your skin.

Even oily skin becomes drier in the fall and winter which triggers an overproduction of oil, leading to even oilier skin. Although it feels wrong to use an oil-based cleanser on oily skin, it’s one of the best things you can do – especially as we enter the colder months. Using an oil-based skin cleanser will not produce more oil on your skin, instead, the gentle cleansing oils balance the skin and remove everything but skin's moisture. Products containing lemon will gently tone the skin without stripping natural oils away.
