Autumn is wonderful. It's the time when we wear fluffy sweaters and drink Pumpkin Spice Lattes. However, your skin may not be so happy with the change of seasons.
Low temperatures and strong winds can negatively affect your skin, but with our help and recommended products, the transition will be very easy.
1. Add a deeply hydrating cream or even a face oil to your routine
The gel moisturizer you use for a glowing complexion in the summer may not be doing enough for your skin when it's faced with the chilly fall wind. So, to combat skin dehydration, we recommend using Dear, Klairs' Rich Moist Soothing Cream, which provides quick and intense long-term hydration.
If you feel that your skin is still not hydrated enough, try adding a facial oil to your skincare routine. I recommend using the Fundamental Watery Oil Drop from Dear, Klairs.
2. Use a night mask
One of the best ways to revitalize the skin after an autumn day is to use a night mask. This type of product will help you make the most of your sleeping hours and you will wake up with hydrated and fresh skin. I recommend introducing the Ultimate Moisturizing Overnight Mask from COSRX into your evening routine as a final step. Contains 87% propolis extract and natural beeswax for softer skin and intense hydration.
3. Moisturizing the skin with an ampoule type serum
For a hydrated complexion, I recommend using an ampoule-type serum. One Day One Drop Real Hyaluronic Ampoule from Etude House is a concentrated serum, composed of only 20 ingredients to hydrate and keep the skin hydrated throughout the day. The serum penetrates deep into the skin and gives a radiant look to the skin.
4. Exfoliate with gentle products
We all know that exfoliation is the key to a much cleaner and smoother complexion, but in the fall, exfoliation can damage the skin due to the harsh conditions outside that weaken the skin's protective barrier. In order not to irritate the skin, after each exfoliation you must use soothing products or sheet masks.
I recommend using COSRX's One Step Green Hero Calming Pads for gentle exfoliation. They soothe irritations, leaving a cooling effect. These discs contain the Green-RX moisturizing mix, composed of multiple natural extracts (Centella Asiatica, tea tree, wormwood, walnut) to increase the rate of cell regeneration, soothe skin irritations and reduce the appearance of enlarged pores.
5. Use a hydrating toner
Toner should be part of your routine regardless of the season. During the summer, your skin needs a toner that clears pores of sebum and sweat, but in the cooler months, a hydrating toner is a better choice. I recommend using Jeju Cherry Blossom Skin Toner from Innisfree . It is a toner intended for all skin types that hydrates and brightens the skin. It contains betaine, an ingredient naturally derived from sugar beet that prevents dehydration and keeps the skin well hydrated.
