Summer to Fall Skincare Routine With Kbeauty

Although that might not mean too much for some people, the change in seasons can be the start of a lot of new beginnings! With the new semester around the corner and many of you returning back to work, sometimes adding something new to spice things up is just what you need. And what better way to spice things up than by changing up your skincare routine!
We previously talked about how less is more during the summer months and that it’s okay to use fewer products sometimes. However, the fall season brings a completely different environment, and it’s best to prepare our skin for that transition and have a fall skincare routine. With these tips, you can easily transition from summer to fall with Kbeauty.
Changing With The Seasons
Depending on where you live in the world the two seasons might either be very similar or completely different. The experience is not the same all around, however, it’s important to note the differences between the two seasons and how they can affect our skin. It’s similar to how our skin tone changes during warmer and colder months.
In some places the change between summer and fall is drastic. And the quick change in temperatures can catch our skin off guard. Since our skin might have adapted to a summer climate and routine, the change in environments can bring about some unwanted skin concerns ( regardless of your skin type ).
Things such as temperature and humidity will change between these two seasons and that change alone can throw off a good skincare routine. Our skin loves consistency and when something as big as a season change occurs it can sometimes hurt the overall health of our skin.

All that really needs to be done is slightly tweaking your current routine for a fall skincare routine. It’s as easy as adding a few extra products or even swapping out some old ones for some new ones!
Here are a few products to consider adding to your fall routine if you haven’t already!

Changing up your moisturizers can be fun and beneficial to your skin! Since the summer tends to be hot and humid, the last thing we need is heavy products. For example, using a gel-cream moisturizer tends to be popular during the summer due to its lighter consistency. However, like mentioned above, the fall months are dryer so lighter moisture might not get the job done with a fall skincare routine. Korean skincare products are all about keeping that skin moisturized all year round so there are many different types of moisturizers available to meet your seasonal needs.
Since the fall temperature consists of a dryer environment, try looking for moisturizers that incorporate hyaluronic acid. Ingredients say a lot about a product and can really make a difference. Since many people still live in areas where it still might be a little warmer in the fall, a product infused with hyaluronic acid acts as a great moisturizing agent without the heavy-duty feel. This makes the moisturizer light yet just as effective as a thicker cream. Moisturizers are just for helping soften fine lines and give off the glass skin look. Another great ingredient to look out for is green tea!
Sometimes our routine can feel like it’s not working but we should never give up there! Always try to consider other factors that might be contributing to this and give something new a try! In the long run, this would help you save more money and throw away less. Although we didn’t hit all the products out there in the Korean beauty world, don’t shy away from trying a new sheet mask or even eye creams!
