Skincare for Fall: 3 Seasonal Beauty Tips to Keep Your Skin Glowing

Vivo-Fall-Pop-Up.jpg

Like our wardrobe, our skincare routine should change with the seasons. No, a complete overhaul might not be necessary. But with the temperature shifts and undulating levels of humidity and dryness, your routine should adapt to these changing conditions in order to continue delivering results.

Fall is a transitional period between two polar opposites, summer, and winter. This can make it an especially tricky time to build a skincare routine around. But Vivo Per Lei is here to make things easy. Below, we discuss a few tips for choosing foolproof skincare for fall.

Seasonal Changes: Skincare for Fall

In the summer, the goal is to keep our skin calm and cool despite the rising temperatures and humidity. In the winter, round-the-clock moisture is key to combating the cold. Skincare for fall should be an effective in-between of these two seasons.

When planning your autumn routine, be sure to select products that can:

  • Repair the impact of the previous summer months
  • Hydrate the skin on a deeper level
  • Prepare the skin for the upcoming winter

Ahead, we discuss each — and which Vivo Per Lei products are best for getting the job done.

Repair Summer Skin

Depending on where you are in the world, your skin can suffer a great deal of damage during the summer. In warmer climates, the temperatures can rise uncomfortably high, leaving the skin dehydrated. The skyrocketing humidity and propensity to sweat can trigger breakouts and acne. The relentless sun has its own impact, too, with UV damage and uneven skin tones being a common issue.

The fall gives you a chance to hit reverse on summer-inflicted damage. One of the best ways to do this is to include a Vitamin C serum in your regimen. 

The Healing Properties of Vitamin C

Vitamin C is wildly popular in the skincare industry, and with good reason. While it is not necessarily marketed as a healing ingredient, it has several properties that can repair what the warmer months left behind. Some of the ingredient’s benefits include:

  • Skin brightening. Arguably the biggest motivation behind Vitamin C usage, this ingredient can get rid of dullness to unveil brighter and more even skin.
  • Scar fading. By inhibiting the body’s production of melanin, the natural skin pigment that turns acne spots into scars, Vitamin C minimizes the appearance of discolored marks. 
  • Anti-aging. Vitamin C can signal the skin to produce more collagen, which can result in filled-out lines and younger-looking skin.

In addition, Vitamin C is also an antioxidant. This means that the ingredient can neutralize free radicals that can inflict skin damage and cause signs of aging to appear. Antioxidants like Vitamin C defend the skin, keeping it safe from external stressors and UV stress.

Skin Healing Products to Add to Your Skincare Routine

Vivo Per Lei’s Vitamin C Restoring Facial Serum has Vitamin C at the core of its formula. Crafted for daily use, this serum is gentle yet potent, chipping away at dark marks and discoloration to give you a radiant autumn glow. The Vitamin C Restoring Facial Serum also infuses skin-protecting Grape Seed Extract and scar-fading Vitamin B3, otherwise known as Niacinamide, in its formula. 

Another reparative product to include in your round-up of skincare for fall is Vivo Per Lei’s Purifying Facial Toner. 

The perfect follow-up to cleansers and masks, the Vivo Per Lei Purifying Facial Toner picks up remaining dirt and debris. At the same time, it harnesses the benefits of these ingredients to repair the negative effects of the summer season:

  • Allantoin, a popular soothing ingredient that has skin-softening and wound-healing effects.
  • Glycerin, a natural moisturizer found in the skin. Reinforced through skincare, Glycerin keeps lipids healthy to help protect against external irritation. 
  • Niacinamide, an ingredient that has become extremely popular in the skincare industry over the past few years. Skincare companies and enthusiasts alike love Niacinamide for its multifunctional benefits: anti-aging, scar fading, hydrating, and soothing.
  • Hyaluronic Acid, a common humectant. Humectants bind water molecules to the skin to promote hydration.

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

As the months pass and the temperature dips, the skin becomes prone to dehydration and dry patches. Flaking, itchiness, irritation, lines, and even leather-like skin textures are common symptoms of dehydrated skin.

To ensure that your skin does not fall prey to the colder weather, you’ll need to keep your hydration in check. When choosing your skincare for fall, remember to select your cleanser wisely, steer clear of harsh products, and double up on nourishing ingredients.

How to Pick a Hydrating Cleanser

First, let’s talk about cleansers…

People often think of serums and moisturizers when they hear about hydration, but cleansers also play a part in the equation. In the summer, foam-type cleansers are a popular choice due to their lightweight consistency and ability to keep excess sebum at bay. However, you’ll want to keep your fall skincare free of these products.

As pleasant as they might feel against the skin, foaming cleansers tend to strip the skin of moisture and hydration. With the weather already contributing to the loss of hydration during the fall, you’ll want to swap your foam cleanser for one that is more hydrating.

One good candidate to consider for your skincare for fall: the Hyaluronic Acid Daily Facial Wash from Vivo Per Lei. Its key ingredient, Hyaluronic Acid (HA), is present across almost every kind of product in the beauty world, from cleansers and moisturizers to injectables. As the skin loses hydration, topically applied Hyaluronic Acid can help improve the skin’s external condition by binding water to the skin. HA has built up a reputation for being able to carry water up to a thousand times its weight in water, which makes it a valuable ingredient to those suffering from dehydration.

Other key ingredients found in the Hyaluronic Acid Daily Facial Wash are:

  • Hydrolyzed Algae Extract. Studies have confirmed the benefits of algae, as well as the marine bioactive compounds therein, for skin health. The Hyaluronic Acid Daily Facial Wash makes use of a hydrolyzed form of red algae to improve skin hydration and reduce the oxidative stress caused by UVB exposure. 
  • Jojoba Esters. Similar to the Jojoba Oil they are drawn from, Jojoba Esters are richly moisturizing and lend a creamy consistency to skincare products.
  • Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil, a soothing and anti-inflammatory hemp-derived ingredient.
  • Coconut-derived surfactants such as Sodium Cocoyl Glycinate, Sodium Lauroyl Glutamate, and Sodium Cocoyl Wheat Amino Acids. These rid the face of germs, dirt, and traces of makeup — but do so more gently than traditional cleansing ingredients.

Hydrating Face Masks

The Midnight Glow-Star Peel Off Mask is another way to spice up your routine while boosting hydration. Don’t let the sparkles fool you; with ingredients like Sodium Hyaluronate and Jojoba Oil, this mask provides a double punch of hydration and moisture whenever your skin feels dull and dehydrated.

The mask also contains an interesting ingredient: Cactus Extract. While cacti and skincare aren’t often seen in the same sentence, the plant’s existence in skincare products surprisingly makes plenty of sense. Remember, cacti need to retain hydration internally to survive in the desert. This is why so many parts of a cactus plant — the pulp, the flower, the water, the list goes on — can be used to enrich skincare and make it more hydrating.

While we’re on the topic of hydration, let’s zero in on an area that often requires a little extra care…

Hydrating the Eye Area

The eyes are one of the first areas that give away a person’s age. After all, not all signs of aging are equal. A 2015 study reported that areas with fewer oil-producing glands are predisposed to developing wrinkles. Since the skin that surrounds the eyes is thinner, more delicate, and has fewer sebaceous glands, it is more prone to creasing, puffiness, and crow’s feet.

This is where Vivo Per Lei’s Collagen Eye Firming Cream comes in.

Combining Vitamin C and Vitamin E, this eye cream is abundant in antioxidants that defend the skin against external forces. Its formulation also combines a cocktail of these skin hydrators to keep the skin supple and youthful:

  • Glycerin
  • Butylene Glycol
  • Trehalose
  • Beta-Glucan 

However, the true superstar of the Vivo Per Lei Collagen Eye Firming Cream is, of course, Collagen. Below the skin, collagen functions to give structure and body. While we naturally produce collagen, this is something that dwindles with time and exposure to the elements. Although applying collagen topically with a product like the Collagen Eye Firming Cream does not cause the body to produce more of this protein, it can deliver a burst of moisture and support that improves fine lines and wrinkles.

Prepare & Protect Ahead of Winter

For most people, especially those who struggle with dryness and sensitivity, the winter spells skin trouble. While some of winter’s consequences are inevitable, one way to improve them is to prepare and protect your skin ahead of the coldest time of year. Fall is the perfect window of opportunity to do just that.

While it might not be time to bring out the ultra-thick moisturizers just yet, skincare for fall should have a good amount of nourishment to keep your skin barrier in check. Swap out the gel moisturizers you used in the summer for something a little thicker and creamier to prep your skin for what’s to come. Here are a couple of Vivo Per Lei creams that would do just the trick:

The Cell Renewal Night Cream 

Vivo Per Lei Cell Renewing Night Cream

First up is the Cell Renewal Night Cream. Hinging on Vivo Per Lei’s signature Dead Sea Minerals, this cream formula can help your skin stay moisturized as the days get cooler. Glycerin, Sunflower Seed Oil, and Shea Butter deliver moisture to the skin, while Cetearyl Alcohol soothes and softens. Despite being deeply nourishing, the Vivo Per Lei Cell Renewal Night Cream leaves a silky, non-greasy finish.

The Marine Ultimate All Skin Cream

Another moisturizer to consider is Vivo Per Lei’s Marine Ultimate All Skin Cream. Specifically formulated to work well with all skin types, this product blends three superstar ingredients to replenish the skin:

  • Squalane Oil, which functions like the skin’s natural oils to combat the loss of moisture. While our bodies produce Squalane, this process is slowed dramatically by the time a person turns thirty. Lightweight and easily absorbed by the skin, Squalane neutralizes UV damage and restores the skin’s bounce.
  • Shea Butter, a crowd favorite in moisturizers and balms for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Lactic Acid. As an Alpha Hydroxy Acid or exfoliating AHA, Lactic Acid provides several benefits like increasing cell turnover, improving texture, and helping the skin stay moisturized. Additionally, a study conducted in 1996 reported that Lactic Acid minimizes fine lines.

With a blend of these ingredients, regularly using the Marine Ultimate All Skin Cream can help reveal smoother and more balanced skin.

The Refreshing Mint-E Lip Balm

Planning your skincare for fall is definitely important, but why stop there? Finish the preparation by including a nourishing lip balm in your routine. The lips suffer the same conditions as the rest of the face come wintertime, so frequent moisture is key to keeping chapping and cracking away.

The Refreshing Mint-E Lip Balm features Vitamin E as its key ingredient. Often paired with Vitamin C or potentially harsh ingredients, Vitamin E has earned something of a reputation for its soothing and healing abilities. With abundant antioxidants, this lip balm will be your first line of defense against the changing weather. Plus, the Refreshing Mint-E Lip Balm comes with two tubes per pack — enough to last you all season long.
