Beauty Topic: seasonal skincare switch

Now that it is officially Fall, it’s time to swap out some of your skincare to plan ahead for dry and colder air. Two of my favorites come from Clinique, because they are effective, incredibly gentle, and can be used comfortably by just about any skin type. It is essential to treat your skin according to climate changes, since no amount of makeup can cover up poor skincare choices. If you plan ahead accordingly, you’ll easily transition from Fall into Winter.

Top cleanser pick for Fall: Clinique Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser

my go-to cleanser for fall and winter

If you have combination skin, it will naturally be oilier in Summer, and drier in Winter. Add in sensitivity (like me) and occasional breakouts, and you’ve got one of the most finicky types of skin to care for. That is why I love this cleanser, because it is fragrance free, removes ALL traces of makeup and debris, and is incredibly gentle to skin. Plus, a little goes a long way. Not kidding about that – if you apply too much, you’ll be rinsing for a while. When I worked for Clinique, they always had us recommend this in addition to the 3-step skincare regimen, as only a makeup remover. But to be honest, I found that it was just fine using it as my cleanser and then toning and moisturizing after. If I used soap after I washed with this cleanser, it dried me out too much. Regardless, I love this cleanser to keep my skin comforted and balanced as the weather starts to get transitional.
Top intense moisturizer for Fall: Clinique Moisture Surge

one of the most versatile moisturizers for fall
Simply put, this stuff is a dry skin saver. It can be layered over other moisturizers for a boost in hydration, used as a mask, mixed with foundation to create a tinted moisturizer, and makes skin feel extra smooth after applying serums. Fragrance free as well, it calms chafed and irritated skin. I usually get really dry skin around my nose during winter, and this prevents cracking and peeling. Even oily skins will love the gel-cream texture, since it feels weightless and will not add shine.

Give these a try if you have difficult skin to care for. Both of these last a while, so you’ll great a great value as well. Enjoy!
