6 Products to Transition Your Skin to Cooler Weather


We all know by now that fall is here. The weather has changed, your wardrobe has probably changed, and like it or not, your skincare needs have changed too. You had a fun summer that likely involved a little too much sun and not enough sunscreen, and winter is coming soon, with its dry air and biting winds. We’re here with a round up of skin care products to help you recoup from a summer in the sun and prepare your skin for the long months of cold.

Six Products to Transition Your Skin to Cooler Weather Burt's Bees

1. Burt’s Bees Aloe & Linden Flower After SunSoother, $10

This lotion’s slogan is “Help overexposed skin chill out” and reviews say it lives up to it. Put it on both your face and your body after a shower for best results. The aloe and linden extract will help soothe any new sunburns, while the coconut oil, bee pollen, and glycerin help to get dewiness back into your skin to prepare you for the moisture-sucking winter. Buy a tube for now and one for later, as this product gets the job done all year round.

Six Products to Transition Your Skin to Cooler Weather Lush Dark Angels

2. Lush Dark Angels Face & Body Cleanser, $14

This charcoal-based cleanser may look a little scary at first, but we promise you’ll come around. Black charcoal and sugar gently exfoliate your cold-weather skin to reveal the glow you hope for year-round, while the avocado oil will help to softly hydrate as well.

Six Products to Transition Your Skin to Cooler Weather Aveeno Positively Radiant Moisturizer

3. Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer, $11

This facial moisturizer is a solid drugstore staple. It’s soothing, sensitive, smells great, and is nutrient-packed enough to carry you through a dry winter. There’s also a Clear Complexion version with salicylic acid, as an acne-prone skin alternative. Day and night, this moisturizer should be part of your skincare routine.

6 Products to Transition Your Skin to Cooler Weather Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask

4. Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask, $8

We know the name Clinique may conjure up childhood memories of your mom’s beauty routine, but this overnight face mask isn’t your mother’s product. Massage this mask into your face after your normal bedtime skin regimen and wake up with plump, hydrated skin. You’ll probably love it so much you rave about it to your mom and it’ll become her product after all.

5. Tony Moly I’m Real Aloe Face Mask Sheet, $4

After 20-30 minutes with this aloe-based sheet mask, your skin will be noticeably softer and smoother. Once the mask is off, you can massage any leftover product into your skin and carry on with the rest of your beauty routine, as reviews say this mask also works well as a make-up primer. Pro tip: keep your mask in the fridge before use for an extra soothing effect.

6. Glossier Balm Dotcom Universal Skin Salve, $12

This skin salve is a little life saver in a tube. With a waxy, Vaseline-like texture, it can be used on lips, cuticles, dry patches, or wherever your skin needs a little help. Glossier also recently came out with flavored options, like Mint, Cherry, and Coconut, if you’re looking for a little more kick or color to your salve.
