Summer to fall moisturizer switch
Summer to fall moisturizer switch
Depending on your skin type, you may want to switch moisturizers through the seasons, maybe because your skin types transitions a but through the seasons, maybe because your skin needs more (or less) based on reactions to the weather. For myself, I have combo-oily skin. In the summer time it leans more to the oily side and the fall/winter it goes more to the combo side, so I get less oily, and find the need for less mattifying products. Now usually I hear those with oily skin like to use a thinner gel or lotion texture because its lighter. But for me, gels and lotions make me feel shiny, so this summer I opted for my GROUNDED SAGE SKINCARE - Raw Radiance Facial Moisturizer even though it has a thicker texture, because it mattifies SO well. It feels like frosting on the skin, and feels kind of oil-proof, so I loves how it felt on my skin over the summer. It also has a great formula for oily skin, as it has niacinamide in it. Niacinamide is a great ingredient for clarifying pores, which in turn makes this an oil-controlling products, which explains why I liked it in the summer so much. Heading into fall now, I’m opting for my Dr Dennis Gross - Alpha Beta Exfoliating Moisturizer lotion texture moisturizer because I am getting less oily and actually this moisturizer is quite hydrating AND is an exfoliating moisturizer. Not that I get dry at all, but this feels really good going into the fall season because I do tend to get dehydrated, and I feel like this helps alot. Its not mattifying like GROUNDED SAGE SKINCARE - Raw Radiance Facial Moisturizer but i dont need that as much during this season. This moisturizer also keeps my oils and pores in check because of the actives in it- AHAs and BHAs, which I love keeping constant in my routine. I just maintain an spf with both of these products because ingredients like AHA, BHA and niacinamide can cause photosensitivity, and honestly you should just be wearing spf daily anyway. #cheriepartner

I try to kee one night cream on hand, and not overdo it with options, but over the months I’ve learned that there are days/nights when my skin is acting differently and can use some treatment out if the norm. For regular, nightly use, I use my Herbivore Moonfruit night cream. This is a beautifully thick, non-tacky night cream made to repair skin from daytime damage with antioxidants and a nourishing formula full of emollients to protect the moisture barrier. However sometimes I feel like my skin can get pretty dehydrated (perks of living in a suburban setting with lots of air pollution, not being great about my water intake, and my love for exfoliating products) that I want a great boost of moisture and hydration. Enter the Laneige Sleeping mask. A nice watery texture that makes you feel like your skin is getting a good drink of water. I use this two times a week, to ensure my regular routine constantly has a hydration step even in times when i havnt done a hydrating mask for the week. Finally, the alpha beta moisturizer is my night cream of choice when I’m experiencing alot of breakouts or uneven skin texture due to acne bumps, blackheads or large pores. I use this at night to avoid photosensitivity if used during the day. I havnt been reachinf for this as much because thankfully i havnt had to. Ive been getting very i frequent breakouts lately and i think thats due to a good preventive skincare system in terms of fighting acne.

This is my current everyday skincare routine. 1- The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid- Hydration Hydration. 2 - Dr. Dennis Gross Daily Peel are the best! I use them almost everyday. I switched from the Extra Strength to the Universal ones. They are gentler on the skin, which is perfect for fall and winter. 3- Sunday Riley Good Genes- No other can replace it! It has changed the way my skin looks completely. My skin looks smoother and brighter. 4- Dr. Dennis Gross xfoliating Moisturizer- Got to try them as a sample and OMG it’s so good!!!! I need to purchase it ASAP! It’s super hydrating and it feels AMAZING! 5- Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate- I can’t live without it! I always finish my skincare routine with it. It seals everything. . P.S.- I don’t use Good Genes on the same day I use daily peel. That’s too harsh. 😉
