The start of fall signals the return of many of my favorite things: the holidays, family reunions, pumpkin-flavored everything, and candy… so much candy.
But one less favorable characteristic of fall and winter is dry air, which causes dry, flaky skin. When your moisturizer fails you and you forget to take off your makeup (again) after a night out, you skin will be begging for some TLC. I’ve got the scoop on the best products to give your skin some love this season for a fresh, hydrated face.
Below are five products to help you achieve a fresh complexion this fall:
1. Nerium Double-Cleansing Botanical Face Wash
A fresh face starts with a clean canvas. Nerium Double-Cleansing Botanical Face Wash is an advanced, lightweight one-step facial cleanser that goes on as a nourishing oil and transforms to a foamy lather with the addition of water, to remove both makeup and impurities, leaving behind soft, smooth, comfortably clean and hydrated skin. This multi functional facial wash does double-duty as a makeup remover and is delicate enough to be used morning and night. The product retails for $40 and can be purchased at Nerium.com.
2. Californium Sunless Bronzer
As summer wades away, so does bronze, sun kissed skin. This mousse formula applies a natural tan effortlessly, free of streaks and unevenness. Made with all natural and organic ingredients, it is a great alternative to products with potentially harmful ingredients. It’s available in an 8oz bottle for home use and a travel size for touch ups on-the-go. You’ll love the natural and gorgeous glow the Sunless Bronzer gives. Californium Sunless Bronzer retails for $27.99
3. Models Own Tea Tree Healer Concealer
What better than one product helping in two ways? Models Owns Tea Tree Healer Concealer not only hides any imperfections but heals them as well. Infused with tea tree oil, this concealer tackles blemishes making skin clearer while temporarily concealing redness and dark spots for all around coverage. The concealer retails for $8.99 and is available exclusively at Ulta and Ulta.com.
4. Models Own A.M. Kit
Start off your day by standing out in the crowd using Models Own A.M. Kit! This all-in-one palette includes 6 beautiful eyeshadows and a gorgeous blush that will bring out your inner model shine. It’s the perfect palette for on the go, so you can glam up anywhere. The kit includes six neutral shimmer and matte eyeshadows and a beautiful peach blush to compliment your cheekbones. (Pro tip: Use the shimmer eye shadows as a highlight on your cheeks.) An eyeshadow brush and blusher brush are also included. The kit retails for $17.99 and is available exclusively at Ulta and Ulta.com.
5. Divaderme FX Mascara and Lash Extender II
Divaderme Cosmetics is lash and brow collection that is 100% natural, including its two hero products, Divaderme FX Mascara and Divaderme Lash Extender II. The FX Mascara is a natural argan fiber treatment mascara, which creates dramatic definition, length, thickness and volume in a single coat. The FX Mascara retails for $22 and can be purchased on the Divaderme website. The Lash Extender is a treatment made up of tiny plant-based cellulose fibers. Applied between coats of your favorite mascara, this product seriously amplifies your natural lashes. The Lash Extender retails for $25, and can also be purchased on the Divaderme website.
Applied together, each of these products fights the dry, colorless face fatigue that comes along with fall, and will have you feeling fresh-faced, even as temperatures continue to drop over the next few months.
