Before We Go On
Hot girl summer is not quite over yet and although we’re all enjoying the sunshine we must not forget that Fall is just around the corner (yay to foliage and fall lattes). As the weather starts to get cooler, and the air changes your skin begins to react differently to the weather. It’s the beginning signs of transitioning your skincare routine. Just like hiding your summer clothes and pulling out your sweaters, summer skincare items must be put to the side and Fall products must come out. If you’re looking for tips and tricks to transitioning there is a simple guide to that here. If you’re new to the whole seasonal skincare routine and/or don’t have one put together this is the article for you. We’ve put together a 3 step Fall skincare routine for you to make life easier. Let’s get into it!
Find a dual-action cleanser - that won’t strip your skin.
Our fan-favorite (take our word for it - our Seoul branch is sold out of this guy).
Dr. Althea's Foaming Cleanser & Bubble O2 Mask ($18)
Skip care is all the rage, and so are multi-functional products. The O2 starts off with a jelly-like texture and once you start to lather it will start to foam. The foam is nonirritating. Furthermore, it won't strip your skin of its' natural oils. It's a win-win if you ask us!
Do not skip the toner! Prep, and hydrate
Well, in this case, do not skip the essence toner!
Premium Intensive Essence Toner ($45)
Toner is something people skip out on but for drier months to come, we think not. Pat it on with your hands or gently swipe it over your skin with a cotton pad (the cotton pad helps remove any debris left from cleansing). Our essence toner doubles as essence and toner, so not only will it prep your skin, it'll provide some nutrients as well.
Brighten and Moisturize
Now that the sun is a bit milder, it's time to crack open the niacinamide, retinoids, and chemical exfoliants.
Power Brightening Glutathione Cream ($45)
We recommend the Power Brightening Gluthaitone Cream - it naturally tones and evens out your skin. It also moisturizes your skin and lightens any new pigmentations gathered over the summer - thanks to the Niacinamide!Next Up: Why This Balm Foundation Is The Hidden Gem of Foundations - Honest Review By Our Intern
