Skincare for Autumn
by Claudia Christin on Oct 20, 2023
We have talked much about skincare for summer and winter, but not about skincare in autumn. Do we need to change our skincare routine in this transition season?
Actually, our skin needs may be different each day and even more in different weather. Hence we may even need to adjust our skincare everyday according to our needs during that season.
Some simple changes during this season can do wonders for your skin. We are going to guide you through a general autumn skincare guideline
a. Are there any specific skincare ingredients we need to seek for autumn?
Yes! The transition in weather and temperature between summer and autumn might affect our skin.
Our skin has gone through a stressful moment in summer from all the heat and sweat. Meanwhile, throughout the transition weather, dryer air might give it a shock that leads to skin barrier disruption, thus causing dryness and sensitive skin.
Look for ingredients that could give you extra hydration and moisture as well as to prevent dryness and irritation. Ceramide, glycerin, honey, snail, and hyaluronic acid can be one of the options that you should have in your shelf for autumn. It locks in moisture and help your skin prepare for the colder winter season

b. What kind of skincare routine would be ideal for autumn?
The basic ideal skincare routine for every season is cleanse, moisturize and protect. To achieve and maintain healthy skin these three steps are the golden rules and cannot be skipped.
Cleanse: Dear Klairs, rich moist foaming cleanser
Moisturize: Dear Klairs, midnight blue calming cream
Protect: Dear Klairs, all day airy sunscreen

It would also be great if you could add exfoliation in between. To avoid dry and flakey skin, using a gentle exfoliators can help boost up our skin regeneration

Adding a soothing or hydration toner that layers well under your moisturizer will boost that layer of hydration on your skin. Using the CSM method can help to level up your skin hydration.

Occasionally when your skin is feeling extra dehydrated, let your skin enjoy a 10-15 minutes session of sheet mask

c. Is it important to exfoliate in autumn?
Yes! Doing exfoliation once to twice a week in any season of your life is great for dull and textured skin. You might think that since the summer is gone, exfoliation won’t be as necessary as it was during summer.
However, if you put aside exfoliation during autumn, you might notice that your skin is still looking dull and dry even though you have layered lots of good skincare to your skin. This is because the build ups of dead skin cells are not being taken care of properly so that your skincare cannot penetrate to your skin.
