Fall skin care routine: a step-by-step guide by skin experts
As autumn approaches, various factors, like cooler weather and changing environmental conditions, can impact your skin. Transition your regimen with nourishing and hydrating products to get healthy-looking skin for the fall.
What happens to my skin during the fall?
The transition from summer to fall brings about several changes in the environment, and these changes can impact your skin in various ways. One of the most significant changes is a decrease in humidity as the air becomes cooler. This drop in humidity levels can lead to increased skin dryness and dehydration. Cooler temperatures can also lead to increased sensitivity and redness in the skin and lack of moisture can make the skin appear less radiant. Some individuals may also experience an increase in breakouts. While the sun's intensity decreases in the fall, UV radiation is still present and has the potential to damage skin.
How do I prepare my skin for the fall?
Preparing your skin for the fall season involves making adjustments to your routine. Nurture your skin's changing needs by opting for products with essential hydrating ingredients that lock in moisture rather than strip it away. Read below for steps to help you treat your skin this fall.
Double Cleanse and Exfoliate (Best Cleanse + Glow - Save 30%)
Initiate your routine with a double cleansing and exfoliation ritual for a radiant complexion. Our new and exclusive holiday kit will help you unlock your glow.

Gentle Exfoliation: Combine the Daily Microfoliant powder exfoliant with the Special Cleansing Gel. This dynamic duo offers a delicate yet thorough cleanse while also providing gentle exfoliation to revitalize your skin.
Tone (Hyaluronic Ceramide Mist)
Many of our toners are formulated with hydrating ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid or botanical extracts. As the weather gets cooler and humidity drops, toners can provide an extra layer of hydration to combat dryness and maintain supple skin.
Applying our Hyaluronic Ceramide Mist before serums and moisturizers can enhance their absorption. Well-hydrated skin absorbs products more effectively, maximizing their benefits.
Replenish (Circular Hydration Serum)
Once you cleanse and tone, introduce our Circular Hydration Serum into your skin. This serum is formulated with Hyaluronic Acid, ensuring deep hydration while promoting radiant skin. This serum helps lock in moisture, keeping your skin well-hydrated and preventing dryness. Hyaluronic acid is suitable for all skin types, including dry, oily, combination, and sensitive skin. It’s non-comedogenic, so it won't clog pores, making it an excellent choice for fall skin care routines.
Moisturize (Intensive Moisture Balance)
Next, layer on our Intensive Moisture Balance moisturizer. This rich, restorative cream provides extra hydration to deeply nourish your skin. Intensive Moisture Balance is formulated with a blend of powerful hydrating ingredients, including Hyaluronic Acid, Echinacea, Centella Asiatica, and Aloe Vera. These ingredients work together to provide deep and long-lasting hydration. This is especially important during the fall season when cooler temperatures and lower humidity can lead to dry and dehydrated skin.
Protect (Prisma Protect SPF30)
Even during the fall, safeguard your skin from harmful UV rays by adding Prisma Protect SPF30 to your daily routine. This sunscreen is the essential final step in your skin care regimen, ensuring comprehensive protection for your skin.
