How to Transition to a Fall and Winter Skincare Routine

With temperatures dropping and snow on the horizon, the world is gearing up to transition into a whole new chapter – and our skincare needs to evolve along with this change. 

Your go-to skincare regimen may be great for summer and spring, but gone are the days of humidity and constant sun exposure once October hits. The air is now crisp and dry, and so is your skin. That’s how you know it’s time to switch to a winter skincare routine! 

So, stow away those lightweight gel moisturizers, because cooler seasons require more fortified skincare products to maintain your hydration levels and boost your winter glow. 

It’s best to keep up to make sure your precious skin doesn’t crack under pressure. With a proper winter skincare routine, you can be an unbothered queen in the snow. 

Start the Season Off Right With a HydraFacial


There’s something in the air during the cooler months, and it isn’t just the smell of freshly baked pumpkin pie or the last red leaf falling from above; it’s harsh winds that can easily dry out your skin. 

When moisturizers don’t seem to cut it, the HydraFacial steps in to hydrate your skin to perfection. A HydraFacial is a medical-grade skin treatment that cleanses the dermis by eliminating dead skin cells, dirt, and excess oil. This revolutionary beauty solution rejuvenates your skin without the use of damaging chemicals.   

Add the HydraFacial into your winter skincare routine if you want to reduce the appearance of the following:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Hyperpigmentation 
  • Dryness  
  • Excess oil 
  • Sun damage 
  • Enlarged pores 
  • Acne

Protect Your Lips  


Your lips are extra sensitive in the wintertime, so aside from giving them some love with hydrating lip balms, it’s also essential to exfoliate them once a week. This gets rid of dead skin cells that manifest as chapped skin. 

Keep Wearing Sunscreen  


Don’t be fooled by the lack of warmth, because the UV rays of the sun are ever-present during winter. Prolonged exposure to sunlight can have dire consequences for your skin, so amplify your winter skincare routine by slathering on some sunscreen

Sheer Hydration Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 40 by AlumierMD is an award-winning sunscreen that uses a combination of zinc oxide, titanium dioxide, grape seed extract, resveratrol, glutathione, and vitamin E to shield your skin from sun damage even during the winter.

Pamper Yourself With a Face Mask


Winter climates put a lot of pressure on your skin, which is why you need to give it some downtime and TLC with a brightening facial mask once a week. This might even be a great opportunity to have a skincare party with the people at home. Movies, popcorn, hot chocolate, and brightening masks for everyone!

Easing into a winter skincare routine with chemical peels is also a great idea if your skin is feeling tired from days of prolonged sun exposure. A superficial chemical peel or medium peel are non-invasive resurfacing procedures that eliminate damaged skin and promote the growth of new, smoother, healthier skin – just in time for the holidays!

Upgrade to a More Hydrating Moisturizer


We cannot stress this enough; never forget to moisturize! 

Extended exposure to cold temperatures can make your skin feel dry, dull, and irritated; especially if you’re battling acne, or have rosacea or sensitive skin. Luckily, you can fix this problem with the right type of moisturizer as part of your winter skincare routine. 

Put your trust in HydraSmooth by AlumierMD, an ultra-light, non-comedogenic hydrating formula that restores clarity and hydration to acne-prone skin. Thanks to its composition of salicylic acid, sea whip, hinokitiol, allantoin, vitamin E, and boswellia, your skin will feel alleviated from acne and irritation while looking radiantly beautiful. 

Regularly Use Hand Cream and Body Lotion


While winter attire may keep your hands and body snug and warm, they are still affected by the elements. Moisturize daily with silicon-based lotions and creams that won’t leave your fingers and toes feeling greasy. 

Eye Spy Eye Cream


Your eyes are the windows to your soul, so it’s no surprise that the skin around them can get frosty during the cold season. Complete your winter skincare routine with gentle eye creams that moisturize and improve elasticity and firmness of the dermis. 

AluminEye is a medical-grade cream that reduces the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, puffiness, and dark circles. Made from a unique combination of murumuru butter, tremella mushroom extract, niacinamide, and antioxidants, this rich formula will love your eyes as much as you do.
