Fine lines and small imperfections are visibly minimized and the complexion appears even and luminous.
When fall arrives, along with frequent rain and wind, we expect our skin to feel and look more moist, but this is rarely the case. Heated indoor air—in offices and at home—is dry air and quickly robs moisture from the skin, while fall winds and colder outdoor air have the same effect. To ensure your skin looks its very best, it is wise to prevent or treat dryness as soon as possible in the season.
Let’s take a look at how you can keep your outer self-glowing beautifully despite the changing weather.
FIRST, USE THE RIGHT CLEANSER
You might be wondering what a cleansing product can do for dry skin. The answer is a lot. Women who have used a cleanser for normal or oily skin during the warmer months, when the air is laden with moisture and oil glands working overtime, may need to switch to a cleanser for normal to dry skin in the colder months. Gentler, milk-based cleansers work especially well for the normal to drier skin that heralds the return of fall.
REVERSA 3 in 1 Mild Gel Cleanser (200 ml)
Reversa 3-in-1 Mild Gel Cleanser is a facial cleanser, makeup remover and moisturizer all in one. Rich in the humectant glycerin, its extra mild formula lifts away dirt, excess oil and makeup without stripping your skin’s natural lipids, leaving it feeling smooth and revitalized. Free from parabens, hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, perfume and oil-free.
AVÈNE Gentle Milk Cleanser – normal to dry, sensitive skin (200 ml)
This creamy, no-rinse milk cleanser is formulated to gently remove make-up and cleanse normal to very dry, sensitive skin. It gently removes impurities without irritation, while supporting the hydro-lipidic film that guards the skin’s precious moisture. You’ll love the way this superior formula leaves your skin feeling soft, supple, and smooth. Contains antioxidants and Avène Thermal Spring Water. No-rinse, soap-free formula, hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic.
As soon as the colder weather arrives, the drier air both outdoors and inside slows the rate of skin turnover, making your skin appear parched and rough. A gentle exfoliant will restore your radiance in no time at all. (Be sure to choose an exfoliant that is gentle on the skin, as you don’t want to damage the underlying skin layer and impair its ability to retain moisture.)
CLARINS Gentle Refiner Exfoliation Cream (50 ml)
This luxurious cream exfoliant is formulated with two different types of micrograins, one to exfoliate and the other to lift impurities from your skin. The result is fresher-looking skin with tighter pores and increased radiance. Contains soothing Mimosa tenuiflora extract to soothe and increase the comfort level of your skin, while enhancing your glow. (Note: for superior results, use twice a week.) Hypoallergenic.
LISE WATIER Skin Radiance Smoothing Exfoliating Gel (75 ml)
This ultra-fresh exfoliating gel removes impurities and gently cleanses all types of skin. Formulated with extracts of grapefruit, pineapple, hibiscus and jojoba plant microspheres, the paraben-free formula gently removes dead skin cells and leaves skin soft and smooth. The result is skin that feels renewed and vitalized.
Toners restore the pH balance of your skin and help your skincare products perform to the best of their ability. Products such as moisturizers rely on correct pH balance to be properly absorbed by the skin—so investing in quality products to improve your skin’s moisture levels is a waste of time if the skin remains too acidic or alkaline.
SHISEIDO Benefiance Wrinkle Resist 24 Balancing Softener (150 ml)
A comprehensive age-defying lotion that contains highly effective ingredients to challenge signs of skin aging. By generously moisturizing the skin, this luxurious softener instantly helps retexturize, making skin more receptive to further skincare treatment. Contains mukurossi extract, which directly inhibits the activity of an enzyme that triggers wrinkling of the skin. The results are visibly improved appearance of wrinkles and resistance to future signs of aging. Perfect for normal and combination skin types.
MARCELLE Essentials Tonifying Lotion for normal to dry skin (200 ml)
This specially formulated tonifying lotion gently removes makeup residue to reveal the soft, radiant skin underneath. The ingenious blending of hydrating, healing and soothing agents—including cucumber and peach extracts— will leave your skin feeling rejuvenated, refreshed and beautiful! Hypoallergenic and paraben-free.
So there you have it—the way to keep your skin radiant throughout the colder months. Remember too that the moisturizers and other skincare products that were helpful to your skin in summer may not be as effective in the fall.
(Please check with one of our beauty advisors to determine the products that are right for your fall and winter skincare regime.)
And remember that as the glow of summer fades and we start to wrap ourselves in the rich fall fashions that our make-up selection will need to change too. Set aside the warm summer hues and add a pop of perfectly placed jewel toned lips with a sexy smokey eye.

It’s starting to happen in stores, everywhere you go, you can tell that the fall season is fast approaching with the styles making an appearance in windows and storefronts everywhere!
