Are you ready for some fall skin care tips?

You may not be! After all, fall can kind of creep up on us. Here we were enjoying summer and then whoosh, it’s gone!

But fall is here, whether we’re ready or not, which means that your skin is probably going through some changes.

Read on for a few easy tips that will help you manage this seasonal transition with glowing, radiant skin.

Why Fall Skin Care Tips Are Necessary

After a nice long summer, you may be noticing some changes in your skin. Dark spots, hyperpigmentation, travel-induced dehydration, and inflammation are all common side-effects of all that time in the hot sun.

With the change into fall, most areas will be experiencing dropping temperatures, increased winds, and dryer air. The skin on your face and hands, since it’s regularly exposed to the elements, tends to be most affected by these changes. That means that when you begin to change your wardrobe for fall, you should think about changing your skincare too.

Colder, drier air can not only cause your skin to dry out, but it can also increase its sensitivity. As your skin dries, the outer layer can become compromised. Your skin will be less able to protect itself, and you may notice visible irritation, redness, or blotchiness.

Without treatment, that excess dryness can lead to cracking in the skin, particularly on the lips and near your fingernails. These cracks and tears can increase the risk of infections while making fine lines and wrinkles more visible.

No matter what your skin type, you’re likely to notice some of these changes. Here at CV Skinlabs, we have the healing, hydrating, and nourishing essentials to keep your skin glowing, radiant, and healthy.

Fall Skin Care Tips to Keep Skin Looking Its Best

1. Switch to a Gentler Cleanser

Check the cleanser you’re using right now. It may be too aggressive for drier, sensitive skin. In the summertime, we’re most interested in getting rid of dirt and oils. In the fall and winter, though, we have to be more careful of the skin’s moisture content. Set your lotion or gel aside and switch to a creamy or milky cleanser that will remove debris while leaving the skin’s natural oils intact.

By the way, it’s wise to do the same with your hand and body cleansers. Remember that the skin all over your body is affected by seasonal changes.

Fall Skin Care Tips 2. Moisturize Morning and Night, No Matter What!

In the more humid summer months, you may have been able to skip moisturizing your skin now and then. That will no longer work in the fall and winter. Your skin will lose more moisture to the drier air and will require more frequent replenishment.

If two times a day still leave your skin feeling dry and tight, don’t be afraid to step it up. You can add some moisturizer midday, or try our Rescue + Relief Spray for a quick moisturizing spritz. It works equally well under or over makeup.

3. Swap Moisturizers

Just as you may need to change up your cleanser for the season, so too might you need to change your moisturizer. You may find that your summer moisturizer is leaving your skin feeling tight after just a couple of hours. If that’s the case, switch to something thicker and creamier that will give your skin the extra hydration it requires.

Our CV Skinlabs Calming Moisture and Body Repair Lotion are unique in that they work year-round to keep your skin feeling soft and hydrated. This is mainly because they are designed to keep your outer layer healthy and strong. Yes, they deliver moisture that your skin needs, but they also calm inflammation and help heal cracks and injuries in the outer barrier, helping your skin to better hold onto the moisture that it has.

Fall Skin Care Tips 4. Repair Skin Damage

As the summer season recedes into the rear-view mirror, you may notice some skin damage that you accumulated while you were out and about. Your pores may look large and clogged, and you may have dark areas that you didn’t see before. There may be more visible fine lines and wrinkles too.

This is the time to repair that damage. Start with exfoliation. Use a gentle product that doesn’t have scratchy ingredients in it, as they can create microtears in your skin that will cause more problems. Instead, choose something with natural fruit acids that will slough away that outer layer without causing inflammation.

This will help minimize the appearance of pores while purging any dirt, oil, and bacteria that may be lingering on your skin. Regular exfoliation will continue to improve the look and feel of your skin.

If you’re suffering from hyperpigmentation, you may want to try a retinol product. It helps speed skin cell turnover and stimulate collagen production while helping reduce the effects of sun damage. A vitamin C serum may also do the trick as over time, it encourages a brighter complexion.

If you have wounds that need tending to, consider using our Restorative Skin Balm. It’s particularly helpful for chapped, dry lips. Apply as often as needed to promote repair of dry, cracked, and traumatized skin.

Fall Rescue + Relief Spray

5. Look in your own eyes.

Summer weather takes a toll on the skin around our eyes. You may notice more sagging and bagging, along with additional fine lines and puffiness.

We’ve recommended using our calming moisture around the eyes in the past. It’s gentle enough for this tender area and can help with fine lines, dark spots, puffiness and even irritation. You can use it day and night and especially great for sensitive skin.

For more stubborn issues, you may want to look for an eye product with retinol and vitamin C, as these can help fade any damage your skin may have suffered over the summer.

If you’re struggling with dark circles, look for products that contain caffeine or vitamin K, which can help to lighten those circles. If you have puffy eyes every morning, try a jade roller and keep it in the refrigerator.

Summer to Fall Makeup Transition

Summer is beginning to wind down here, the nights have gotten cooler and some say they can see the leaves beginning to turn. However, just because summer is coming to an end doesn’t mean you can’t keep that summer glow with you all year ‘round.

One of my favorite tricks for an instant glow is applying Warm Bronze Dream Tint Tinted Moisturizer under my base. I apply a dot of the moisturizer on my forehead, nose, chin, and cheeks. I then blend the Dream Tint using my Blending Brush before applying my PurePressed Powder Mineral Foundation. This gives me a bronze glow that is very natural and subtle. I’ve also fallen in love all over again with So-Bronze 3. Using the Dome Brush, I apply a little of the matte color to my forehead and the top of my cheekbones, as well as the bridge of my nose. To illuminate the look, use the shimmer crescent within So-Bronze 3. Also, don’t forget the Tantasia Self Tanner & Bronzer 5 self-tanning tips I shared a few weeks ago, these are great all year! I may be a summer girl at heart, but I am so excited for the new makeup colors of fall: reds, purples and bronzes. I can’t wait to combine my summer glow tricks with these gorgeous colors! Stay tuned, we’re working on some great fall looks that we think you will love and can’t wait to share with you!

If you haven’t already transitioned your hair color and haircut for fall, now is the time. The editors at HollywoodLife.com interviewed the stylists at Licari Cutler Salon in NYC to get their expert consultation on the hair looks you must try for fall 2016. Buh-bye, summer. Hello, cozy sweaters and autumn hair perfection.

Get inspo from celebrities like Lucy Hale and Emilia Clarke who are showing off their best fall hairstyles on Instagram. Kiss your summer look good-bye and transition to autumn with this on-trend hair color and haircuts straight from the experts.

When choosing the perfect hair color, says colorist Lilybeth Vargas, blondes want to go for warm, deep, rich tones. “Leave behind that bleached-out summer look by adding multi-dimensional hues,” advises Lily. “Skin tonality shifts from season to season, and so should hair color. Blondes always fear going darker.” But try adding a warm champagne golden tone to your pale blonde to subtly but skillfully brighten the texture of your hair. This will leave the bleached-out blonde behind, keeping your golden locks a super-pretty warm tone.


Brunettes have a wide range of hues and tones they can consider. So have fun with your color, Lily encourages. “Try a cinnamon swirl, a blush ginger, a dusty rose or a buttery scotch,” she advises. “It’s the perfect time to be playful and experiment with autumn shades. Chestnut brown melting into auburn accents can give hair that dark, dimensional look with a pop that most brunettes crave.” These warm tones are the ultimate fall hair colors.

Do you need to repair dry, frizzy summer hair? Lucari hairstylist Breno Miranda advises a strategic cut to remove damaged ends and help transition your bleached-out color. “We love a messy, beach-y style in the summer,” Breno says, “but as you transition your color, you want your cut to match. You can keep that ‘lived-in’ look, but ask your stylist for a more refined finish. You don’t want to look messy!” For extra repair, and to grow thicker, healthier hair with less damage and shedding, take Viviscal Extra Strength. Our hair growth supplements nourish your follicles with the marine extracts, biotin and vitamin C they crave, especially as most of us see extra hair fallout during the colder autumn months.

10 Easy Summer to Fall Transition Tips


summer to fall makeup transition tips

Listen closely ladies! It’s import to transition your makeup from summer to fall. We know this sounds daunting, but it can actually be quite simple. You don’t have to completely overhaul your makeup bag, but as the seasons change, so should a few essential items. Decreases in temperature and humidity often have dramatic effects on our skin, requiring us to re-evaluate what products we wear. During the fall, our skin starts to react to the cooler air, causing dryness and flaking, especially if you live further from the equator, like we do in Massachusetts. It’s also important to account for a change in color palettes. We bet you’re like us, and often wear bright clothes and floral patterns during the summer, but as fall and winter approach, your wardrobe becomes darker (and plusher…hello, sweater weather!). As you adjust the colors of your outfits, you also have to think about how your makeup compliments your clothing. Don’t be afraid to make a few makeup swaps here and there. Here are the top ways to transition your makeup bag from summer to fall.
