Just as I update my wardrobe in the fall, I also update my beauty routine. The cool, crisp air means my skin will get a little tighter and dry patches become more prominent. This calls for more hydration and masks. You should be looking for products and targeting ingredients that will provide that maximum moisture. But if you’re new to skincare or branching out into new products, knowing what to pick from the massive selections at Sephora or Nordstrom might feel intimidating. So today, I’m sharing 5 tips on how to change your skincare in the fall:


My skin tends to get flakier in late fall going into winter. To get silky, smooth skin, a gentle facial scrub or exfoliating cleanser is essential. Exfoliating helps remove the dead skin cells and plumps up dull, dry skin. I only scrub twice a week, but if your skin is extra sensitive, feel free to scale back to once per week. You can also try exfoliating serums or peels.

Add an Oil

Oils have become more and more popular through the years because they’re so nourishing for the skin. Although they can feel pretty heavy in the summer if you have oily or combination skin, they’re perfect in the winter. There are plenty of wonderful oils on the market now that can be used for face, body, and hair, which I’ve grown to appreciate. For facial oils, you can’t go wrong with argan, rosehip, and squalane.


Target Specific Ingredients

I always look for key ingredients that really penetrate and benefit the skin. Some of my favorites are honey, probiotics, and ceramides. Honey is full of antioxidants and is naturally antibacterial, making it perfect for boosting moisture and providing a soft glow. I’m sure you’ve heard about the benefits of intaking probiotics, but it also works wonders as a topical treatment, improving tone and texture. Finally, ceramides are essential for dehydrated skin. It’s really effective at relieving the skin of tightness and flakiness and helps you achieve a smooth complexion.

Mask Regularly

Whether you’re into traditional masks or sheet masks, they’re all packed with ingredients your skin will love! You can even make your own masks at home using ingredients like honey, yogurt, turmeric, and cinnamon. Masking helps your skin absorb all your other products better and they also penetrate deeper. It’s the fastest way to see a transformation in your skin. I love Dr. Jart masks, but you can find several affordable ones everywhere now.

Switch Your Toner

If you’re prone to dry skin and want to change your skincare in the fall, it’s probably smart to move away from toners that contain alcohol. Opt for toners with chamomile, green tea, or witch hazel. You’ll reap the balancing and clarifying benefits without stripping your skin.

    Although I have oily skin, I do notice my skin does get a bit less oily in the winter and I know for sure,, certain cleansers do not help. As some will actually contribute to drying out my skin and it’s weird cause I am not used to having any sort of dry skin. So I still apply moisturizing creams and serums even though I probably don’t need all that hydration but I get paranoid about my skin. So to make sure I am keeping away the seasonal dryness, the fine lines or wrinkles, I lather my face with hydration. I have sensitive skin and acne prone so its a good thing the products I use are compatible. If you know any tips or suggestions of products that are for sensitive /acne prone skin, I would like to hear!

  • A very extensive detail on the skin care routine and it’s wonderful. My can’t do withouts have to be exfoliants, masks & hydrating creams. I tend to switch also as the season change as well. Thank you

  • Eda

    My skin is horrible when it comes to weather change so I definitely agree that you need to change up your skincare routine every season. Thanks for the amazing tips. Going to add more hydrating products soon.

    Thank you for sharing these tips. Skin care is always very important, I think even more so in the Winter. Exfoliating and putting moisturizer and lotion to help dry skin and soften our skin with the cold weather, is crucial.

    That mustard sweater dress is fabulous and you look gorgeous!

  • These are awesome tips! Love the whole yellow dress

    Life is just Rosie

  • Thank you for the useful tips! I love adding an oil too during fall/winter, and the Lamer one must be such a great choice! That yellow dress is dreamy by the way! You look wonderful!

    • Awesome! Thanks Stella 🙂

    • That’s true. Thanks Lisa 🙂

  • Such a great post! Very helpful info!
    I do add an oil for fall and winter. Sometimes I mix my foundation with one drop facial oil to prevent the dryness.

    xo, Joling

    • That is a cool idea. I need to try that!

  • I am a huge fan of masks, as much as possible I do it every evening before I sleep. I guess in every change of weather or season, we also need to change our skin care treatment.

    Having some skin problems lately, changed my skincare entirely. I use daily thermal spring water, once a week I exfoliate my face using a scrub made from honey and polenta, and after that I use a moisturising mask.

    • A good moisturizing mask sounds perfect for winter! Good on you for updating your skin care regimen.

  • I know. It does have the tendency to lose its natural moisture.

  • I’ve been using oils more lately, they make a big difference to my skin. Btw, I love your yellow sweater dress!
