Transitioning Your Skincare from Summer to Fall

Transitioning Your Skincare from Summer to Fall - Three Ships

As summer gradually makes way for the crisp chill of fall, you may begin to notice your skin’s needs are changing with the season. Here are some tips and products that will help you keep your routine updated and your skin radiant no matter the weather.

Changes to Your Skin

Summer brings with it hot and humid conditions that tend to soften the skin and promote moisture retention. This results in higher oil production. However, as the weather gradually cools, humidity levels drop which can make your skin begin to feel parched. Thus, keeping your skin hydrated all day will be a larger focus.

Fall is also a good time to help take care of your skin after a long, hot season under the intense sun. Especially if you’ve spent a lot of time outdoors or have experienced breakouts during the hot weather, indulging in skincare treatments can help your skin recover.

Here is the routine we recommend to keep your skin hydrated and healthy as the weather begins to cool.

1. Cleanse with Purify Aloe + Amino Acid Cleanser

Since hydration is now one of your top priorities, it’s important to start off with a cleanser that is effective but won’t be overly-stripping. The Purify Aloe + Amino Acid Cleanser is a great option, as it removes excess dirt and accumulated impurities from your day while Amino Acids replenish your natural moisture barrier so it stays intact.

2. Exfoliate with Superfruit Lactic + Multifruit 8% AHA Exfoliating Mask

Chilly temperatures can be harsh on the skin, often resulting in dehydration and the appearance of flaky, lifeless skin. Consider incorporating a gentle exfoliation into your skincare routine 2-3 times a week to effectively slough away those unwanted dead skin cells and help healthy cell turnover. 

Our Superfruit Lactic + Multifruit 8% AHA Exfoliating Mask utilizes the power of Rice Powder for gentle skin polishing and a blend of Fruit-Derived AHAs to brighten your complexion while effectively removing dead skin cells. 


3. Hydrate with Dream Bio-Retinol + Shorea Butter Night Cream

You may find that you need to switch to a thicker moisturizer, and Dream Night Cream is the perfect product to preserve your skin's moisture levels. Dream Night Cream has a rich and thick texture, thanks to the inclusion of vegan Squalane and nurturing seed butters such as Shorea and Murumuru. This luxurious texture effectively acts as a seal to lock in your skin's precious moisture both day and night.

5. Lock in moisture with Glow 49% Jojoba Oil Serum

Especially if you have dry skin, adding in an oil serum can really allow your skin to feel hydrated and look dewy during the dry season. Glow Oil Serum contains a high concentration of 49% Jojoba Oil, a lightweight botanical extract that closely mimics the chemical structure of your skin's natural sebum. This helps minimize the appearance of pores and regulates oil production so that you’ll look dewy without being greasy!

6. Don’t forget your SPF

Even though the sun might not be as potent, it’s still vital that you use an SPF as your skin is still vulnerable to UV damage. You can even mix in your SPF with Dream Night Cream to make your own moisturizer with SPF!
