5 Skincare Essentials That Will Save Your Skin This Fall

Repeat after me: Moisturize!

With September coming to an end and October rapidly approaching, Fall is upon us. The cooler weather brings many things, a change in the leaves, seasonal beverages and cozy sweaters. But it also means dry skin. In order to tackle the Fall freeze head on and keep your skin healthy, you’ll want to switch up your skincare routine. No longer will you be needing the light weight products that summer required, it’s time to double up on the moisturize to prevent the flaky and cracked skin that comes with the change in seasons.

Heavy Duty Moisturizer

If you don’t have one already, you’ll need to invest in a heavier moisturizer for your face. Put that light, low viscosity primer you’ve been dabbing on for months to the side and spackle on something thick to keep your mug dewy fresh. This CeraVe Moisturizing Cream is a fan favorite, as it’s both extremely hydrating and repairing.


Though not technically marketing as a skincare product, a humidifier is essential to keeping your skin hydrated all Fall and Winter long. You’ll thank us later when your skin says silky smooth and this is the easiest way to take care of your face while you sleep. Amazon has plenty of humidifiers up for sale and you can snag this beauty for just $39.99.

Hydrating Serum

Any skincare enthusiast knows that a good serum goes a long way, especially during the Fall. Serums work by penetrating the layers of your skin and restoring hydration where needed. The Pixi Hydrating Milky Serum is perfect for newbies to the skincare world, as it’s packed with natural ingredients and can be picked up at most drug stores.

Hand Cream

Once Fall hits and we’re still using tons of hand sanitizer, hand cream will be more essential than ever. To prevent hand cracking, blistering and bleeding this Fall, you’ll want to grab a hand cream that will keep your hands soft and supple. Crabtree and Evelyn have been dominating the hand cream game for decades, so it’s no surprise they’ve got a Harvest Hand Cream ready for your mitts come Fall.

Tinted Lip Balm

Even though we’re all still wearing masks, we cannot neglect lip care. Our lips are one of the first parts of our body to dry out and a tinted lip balm will keep your kisser nourished. Glossier’s Balm Dotcom comes in eight shades and thanks to heavy duty ingredients like castor oil and beeswax, your lips will stay smooth for hours after application.
