Fall-ing Back Into Routine

As the frenzy of summer slows and shifts into autumn routine, consider your skincare. Changes in season should bring a change in the way you care for your complexion. Cooler temperatures and dry air leave even the happiest, healthiest skin in need of a ritual reset. Below are 5 steps and expert tips for keeping your complexion looking radiant as we move into fall.

Step 1: Cleanse day and night

Did you know you sweat up to 1-2 liters each night? On top of that, you’re shedding 30,000-40,000 dead skin cells every minute—and no, they don’t naturally fall off your face. Cleansing twice daily ensures all those surface oils, dead skin, dirt, and pollutants are rinsed away, unclogging pores and leaving your complexion refreshed. The trick, particularly in drier months, is choosing a cleanser that nourishes as it cleanses.

We recommend: Hydra-Therapy Cleasing Duo

Why it’s perfect for fall: Double cleansing allows for a complete cleanse, full of beautiful benefits. Our Phelityl Cleansing Duo is ideal for infusing dry skin with balanced hydration. Begin with our Hydra-Therapy Phelityl Cleansing Oil, lightweight but moisture-rich and quick-absorbing, to instantly restore hydration as you cleanse. Follow with our nourishing Phelityl Cleansing Bar, formulated with ingredients packed with Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) help maintain moisture and bring skin back into balance.

The results: Skin is left looking and feeling silky smooth, soft, and radiant.



Step 2: Show under-eyes extra TLC

From fall to winter, dry air wreaks havoc on the delicate eye area, one of the most-sensitive and high-maintenance parts of the face. Because the eye-area doesn’t contain oil glands, dryness is the default—unless you supplement with eye creams. Eye creams are formulated with vitamins, peptides, and other skin-loving ingredients to gently penetrate and hydrate. TIp: When applying eye cream, use your ring finger—your weakest digit—to ensure gentle application. Apply eye cream immediately after cleansing to avoid cross contamination with the actives in your other skincare products, as these can irritate the eye area. 


We recommend: Antioxidant Complex for Eyes 

Why it’s perfect for fall: Under-eyes need extra TLC in cool, dry months. Our Antioxidant Complex for Eyes conditions tired eyes with a blend of antioxidant and hydrating ingredients. Mulberry Extract targets melanin to reveal illuminated under-eyes. Vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant, strengthens skin, boosting natural renewal abilities.

The results: Brightens the look of dark circles, soothes, de-puffs, and improves skin elasticity. 


Step 3: Use toner to balance pH

Toner has several benefits, including providing an extra layer of protection against pollutants. This time of year, we also turn to toner to keep pH levels in balance. Skin is naturally acidic, generally with a pH between 5 and 6. Depending on the pH of the cleanser you use and how alkaline it is, it can potentially throw off your natural pH balance. This can cause your skin to produce extra oil to compensate for the change. Using a toner balances your skin.

We recommend: Hydraphel Skin Supplement

Why it’s perfect for fall: Hydraphel Skin Supplement is a favorite for helping dry skin feel comfortable in all seasons. Our silky, hydrating toner (essence) works for nearly all skin concerns to revive dull or dry complexions and begin the process of renewal. Skin-restoring nutrients and powerful hydrators work together to soothe skin and balance pH. Glycerin attracts and holds hydration to restore moisture levels

The results: Skin is left refreshed, perfectly conditioned, and better able to absorb moisturizers and serums.



Step 4: Choose serum with targeted benefits

Serums give skin an extra layer of lightweight hydration, but that’s not all. Serum actives deliver targeted benefits to support your skin’s unique needs—whether it’s improving tone and texture, smoothing fine lines, brightening, and so on. Serums are able to penetrate deeper into the skin, optimizing the delivery of those highly-concentrated actives. With each new season, consider what your skin needs right now. The right serum is a way to answer those needs. 


We recommend: Timeless Skin Serum

Why it’s perfect for fall: As its name suggests, our Timeless Skin Serum is always in season. But it’s particularly nice for autumn as it’s formulated to hydrate deeply while also delivering other targeted benefits. Meadowfoam Seed Oil, a moisturizer rich in Vitamin E, absorbs quickly into skin, creating a barrier to lock in hydration. At the same time, other powerful natural actives target signs of aging.

The results: Skin’s tone and texture is improved and precious moisture is preserved.


 Step 5: Cloak skin in rich moisture

Failing to properly hydrate skin can lead to a host of problems as a result of dryness—including the overproduction of oil to compensate. With oil comes breakouts and blemishes. We’d go so far as to say that, next to cleansing, moisturizing is the most important step in your ritual. At night, skin enters “recovery mode” where the regeneration process is 3x faster than during the day, meaning skin also loses the most moisture at night. In every season, moisturize your skin day and night. In cooler months, choose a rich cream for optimal moisture retention. 

We recommend: Firming Cream

Why it’s perfect for fall: Our Firming Cream ticks the “rich cream” box, making it perfect for dry, cool months. Like our Timeless Skin Serum, Firming Cream also boasts other benefits for healthy, happy skin. With natural retinol alternative Bakuchiol and antioxidant-packed Spirulina, this age-defying cream helps re-contour, re-firm, and re-plump the look and feel of your skin.

The results: Hydrates, smooths, and gives the complexion a lifted look.
