Fall’s Must-Try Skincare Routine (For Day and Night)
Posted by Anita Sun
We are officially in fall—and with the new weather comes a new opportunity to evaluate our skincare routines and make sure we’re giving our skin exactly what it needs to look, feel, and function its best.
But what, exactly, does that look like? Let’s take a look at all the must-have’s you need in your fall skincare routine (AM and PM):
The morning is a rushed time for many people—and the last thing you want is a skincare routine that’s going to hold you back.
Luckily, you only need to take a few steps each morning to set your skin up for success all day long:
- Step 1: Antioxidant serum
- Step 2: Moisturizer (with sunscreen)
- Step 3: Eye cream
Let’s take a look at each step in more detail:
When you’re prepping for the day, you want to give your skin everything it needs to not only look and feel its best, but to protect itself from any damaging or harmful environmental issues it may face during the day. And the best way to do that? A powerful antioxidant serum.
Antioxidants are extremely powerful ingredients, delivering a one-two punch of protecting your skin and repairing the damage caused by sun exposure and free radicals. DERMOVIA’s Skin Cycle Power C Serum is formulated with Vitamin C, which offers a host of anti-aging benefits (including brightening the skin, lightening dark spots, improving elasticity, and repairing sun damage) as well as a potent antioxidant blend to provide protection from free radicals. Plus, if you wake up with less-than-happy skin, the Power C is formulated with Chamomilla Recutita Flower Extract—which can help soothe the skin, fight inflammation, and make sure your complexion is ready for the day.
It’s exactly what your skin needs to start the day on the right foot (or, in this case, the right face!).
It doesn’t matter if your skin is dry, oily, combination, or normal—moisturizer needs to be a non-negotiable part of your AM skincare routine. But when you’re prepping your complexion in the morning, the last thing you want is a heavy moisturizer that’s going to sit on the surface of your skin—which not only feels less than ideal (and runs the risk of clogging your pores), but can also cause issues with makeup application.
DERMOVIA’s Skin Cycle Bright Glow Moisturizer SPF 30 is a lightweight, non-comedogenic moisturizer that’s the perfect texture for every skin type and formulated with a variety of ingredients (including bearberry and licorice) to give you the perfect glow all day long. Plus, the Bright Glow Moisturizer is formulated with both physical and chemical sunscreens to provide the highest level of protection from harmful UVA and UVB rays—without the heavy feel of other sunscreens.
The last area to address in your morning skincare routine? Your eye area.
The skin around the eye is the most delicate on the face—which means that any issues you have with your skin (like dehydration, fine lines and wrinkles, or loss of elasticity) are likely to look more prominent in the eye area.
But not to fear! With the right eye treatment, you can restore that youthful glow. DERMOVIA’s Skin Cycle Age Reversal Eye Cream is packed with ingredients that help foster more plump, hydrated, and balanced skin—including humectants to bind water to the skin, vitamin E to reduce inflammation, and jojoba seed oil to hydrate. Plus, the non-greasy formula makes for the perfect base for makeup.
Running late in the morning and don’t have time for skincare and makeup? DERMOVIA’s Skin Cycle Invisible Tint Moisturizer is the best of both worlds. The Invisible Tint Moisturizer’s lightweight, mousse-like texture effortlessly absorbs into the skin—and the natural tint evens out skin with a sheer coverage that’s perfect for those days you don’t want to look or feel like you’re wearing makeup. Plus, the moisturizer is formulated with both Zinc Oxide and Titanium Oxide—so you have SPF you need to protect your skin from the sun (and the damage that goes along with those UVA and UVB rays).
Your pre-bedtime skincare routine is all about cleansing the skin of any residue from the day and giving your skin what it needs to heal, repair, and hydrate overnight. And that breaks down to four different steps.
- Step 1: Eye makeup remover
- Step 2: Cleanser
- Step 3: Hydrating serum
- Step 4: Moisturizer
Eye Makeup Remover
When you apply your eye makeup, you apply it in a way that’s meant to last all day—but when the day winds down, you need a makeup remover that’s going to get that makeup off the eye area without damaging or drying out the skin (or without leaving an oily residue that irritates your eye or stains your pillow case).
DERMOVIA’s Skin Cycle Water Zone Eye Make-Up Remover is the perfect solution for not only removing any trace of makeup from the eye area (including waterproof products!), but also refreshing and soothing the area, thanks to ingredients like aloe, antioxidants, and eyebright extract. Plus, the greaseless finish will leave your skin (and your pillow!) feeling clean and fresh.
Once you’ve removed the makeup from your eyes, you need to cleanse the rest of your face—and get rid of any pore-clogging residue that could lead to breakouts.
If you have oily or acne-prone skin, you need a cleanser that’s going to work overtime to clear the skin of any excess skin or sebum that’s clogging pores and driving breakouts—but without stripping the skin of the hydration it needs to look and feel its best.
DERMOVIA’s Skin Cycle Pro Beta Exfoliating Cleanser is formulated with salicylic acid to exfoliate the skin, removing any impurities that might lead to breakouts (including excess sebum or dead skin cells)—but, unlike harsher pore-cleaning cleansers, it’s also formulated with gentle ingredients (like aloe vera) so that it doesn’t damage or dry out your skin in the process.
Your body repairs itself while you sleep—and that includes your skin. So, it’s important to give your skin what it needs to repair itself overnight—and, if your skin is dehydrated, that includes a serum that not only hydrates the skin, but helps it to repair itself and better hold on to moisture.
DERMOVIA’s Skin Cycle Hyaluron Active Serum delivers the one-two punch of increased hydration and water retention. With its proprietary blend of botanicals and active ingredients (including sodium hyaluronate, which binds moisture to the skin), this potent serum penetrates deep into the cells, infusing water directly into the skin and providing deep hydration while reducing transepidermal water loss and restoring the skin’s ability to retain moisture.
A hydrating serum is the first step of your nighttime moisturizing routine—but you also need to follow it up with a nighttime moisturizer. And if you want to get the most out of your moisturizing routine, you should look for a moisturizer that not only hydrates, but also repairs the skin.
DERMOVIA’s Skin Cycle Youth Restore Moisturizer provides a potent dose of hydration to the skin while fighting and repairing the signs of premature aging with a blend of powerful ingredients, including peptides (to stimulate collagen production and improve firmness and elasticity), lactic acid (to smooth skin texture and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles), and licorice root (to brighten the complexion and lighten hyperpigmentation).
