Tips to Move Your K-Skincare Routine from Summer to Fall

It’s time to say goodbye to summer and hello to fall~ let’s get excited for the changing leaves, crisp breeze, and oversized sweaters! When seasons change, everyone’s wardrobes change to match the weather- but does your skincare? New seasons mean your skin will change its behavior due to the weather and climate that it is exposed to on a daily basis. In fall, your skin will need an extra dose of hydration as the humid and hot temperatures of summer have disappeared and your skin is now experiencing a drier and more cold climate! Seasonal changes can be fun and exciting for your wardrobe but not for your skin. Don’t forget about updating your skincare routine when you change your wardrobe from light linens to heavier wools.

Korea is very familiar with the extreme weather and humidity changes that each season brings, and they have innovated products perfect for your skin in every season! Follow these tips and product recommendations below to keep your bright and youthful glow this fall.

Tip #1: Deep Hydration

A heavier moisturizer may sound off-putting or too thick for your skin to absorb properly; however, as the weather starts to cool down your skin will lose its moisture, making it extremely important to keep it well hydrated to keep it in balance.

There are formulas available that are specifically made to deeply penetrate your skin’s barrier and hydrating your skin without weighing it down and clogging your pores. Keeping your skin well moisturized in the colder, drier months will prevent it from freaking out (i.e. unwanted break outs, dry patches, or oily skin~!).

Tip #2: Include a Serum, Oil, or Ampoule

Serums, oils, and ampoules use highly concentrated formulas with active ingredients that immediately improve the skin’s texture and barrier. Due to their fast absorption, these products make an excellent first step after cleansing! If you don’t want to use a serum, oil, or ampoule separately on the skin simply add 2-3 drops into the amount of moisturizer to be used for your skincare routine! As well as the intense absorption and moisturization, these products will help nourish and soothe the skin making them perfect to prep your skin for the cold and dry fall air.

Tip #3: Revive Your Eyes

While eye creams can be a bit of a hot topic in the skincare community, we believe that it does not hurt to include a hydrating or contouring eye cream. The skin under your eyes is very delicate, so be sure to use a specially formulated eye cream for this step! When applying, focus on using a small amount of product and lightly massaging it into the delicate under-eye skin. Eye creams help prevent fine lines from settling in and deserve some tender love and care after going through high-contact situations when applying makeup and cleansing.

This eye cream builds up the delicate skins barrier, while strengthening its moisture barrier and prevents premature aging.

Tip #4: Boost your skins health and hydration with Sheet Masks

Sheet masks are an ideal addition to your fall skincare routine. The colder weather and harsher winds make your skin more sensitive and irritated, so this added step of moisture will help ease your skin’s troubles and allow you to start or finish your day refreshed. Depending on your skin type and its needs, you can use different types of hydrating, brightening, and tightening sheet masks; however, if we know one thing that is for certain, is that you can NEVER go wrong with any sheet mask~! >.<
