Fall’s Skin Must-Haves

By Abigail Padgett

Fall is a remarkable season; it’s probably my favorite. I love the crisp air and dryer weather. There’s only so much humidity a girl can take after August ends. That being said, with the cold and dryness comes new skin problems. So, here are some skin-saving supplements for your fall beauty regime to keep your skin in peak condition without breaking the bank.

Glossier’s Priming Moisturizer (Rich)

Anyone who knows me knows how obsessed I am with all things Glossier. I think I own close to every product they sell (it’s a problem), and I use them every day. I highly recommend checking out their website. With a sort of cultish following, this brand can do no wrong, and this moisturizer is proof. Compared to their regular priming moisturizer, this richer creme is perfect for the incoming fall weather. Use it at night or whenever your skin needs some extra moisture!

This French brand’s reviving face mist is a must have, especially as the weather turns. It claims to brighten dull and tired skin, which makes it a Fall/Winter essential. An added bonus is that it can also be used to set makeup. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley claims to use it religiously, nbd.

The French really know their stuff when it comes to skin. This luscious moisturizer is simple, yet effective in its ability to give instant relief to your seasonally changing dry skin. Elle.com Associate Market Director Justine Carreon says, “This is one of those stereotypical products you see on that French Girl lists, but it really does work.” 

Argan Oil

Although I don’t use it every day, argan oil is wondrous when your skin really needs some help. You can layer it under or over your face routine, or mix it into virtually any body lotion for that extra boost of moisture. It blends easily with products and absorbs into skin, hair or cuticles very quickly. If you have skin that is sensitive to heavy products or is already prone to oil, you might only want to use this once a week or so, depending on sensitivity. Just make sure that the label reads “100% pure and natural,” or “organic” if you decide to give argan oil a shot. Click here for buying options.
