Summer to Fall: Here's How I Transitioned My Skincare Routine

Thank you to our friends at Josie Maran for partnering with us on this story.
Every new season is a new opportunity to refresh your beauty routine.  In fact, as sunny summer days come to an end and cooler fall temperatures arrive, you'll have completely different needs in the beauty department. Cold weather can be harsh on your skin, so prepare to add extra-moisturizing formulas like Josie Maran's beloved Argan Oil, plus a nourishing body wash, spa-like body scrub, and smoothing under eye treatment for a brighter face. Read on for the beauty products you need to add to your routine this season.

The One Product Wonder: A Multitasking Oil

Josie Maran is the Argan Oil holy grail for beauty obsessives. They were the first to pioneer clean oil-powered beauty, and their formulas are a source of essential nutrients like fatty acids and Vitamin E. Josie Maran is also dedicated to sustainability–their Argan Oil is harvested from a UNESCO-protected region to prevent deforestation and overharvesting, and they partnered with Terracycle to upcycle their product packaging. 

Josie Maran's 100% Pure Argan Oil is a one-product wonder–quite literally, you can use it from head to toe. Under your eyes, it treats fine lines and wrinkles and helps maintain hydration. Or, you can apply it to your hair (on damp hair, it's a non-greasy source of hydration and can save your split ends), and you can even use it as a body oil. Argan Oil devotees also use it in their makeup routines–add a few drops to the foundation for an all-over dewy and smooth look, and make it the last step in your beauty routine to seal your entire look in. 

Three Hero Products to Round Out Your Fall Beauty Routine

Adding moisturizing essentials to your routine is key in the fall, but that's not the only product swaps you should make. A luxurious body wash filled with essential oils and nutrient-rich ingredients, like the nourishing body wash by True Botanicals, should be your shower staple in the fall to help your skin combat harsh temperatures and changing weather. Exfoliating is key as the seasons change–between cold air outside and nonstop indoor heating, your skin will be drier than ever, and exfoliating is a great way to remove dead skin cells. Caudalie's Crushed Cabernet Scrub is one of our favorite formulas! To brighten up your under-eye region, use a cult-favorite eye mask like the Shiseido pure retinol express smoothing eye mask, which can reduce the appearance of dark circles.
