Perk Up! 3 Skin Savers To Bring Back That Summer Glow

I love fall. It's the time when the city jolts awake after being in the Hamptons all summer. Every night, there seems to be an art opening or party to go to. I can wear the new coat I was eyeing at Barneys, break out all my gloves, and dust off my favorite pair of thigh-high boots.
Yes, fall is the season when the city comes back to life, but it also signals the time to buckle down and get back to work. It's no wonder everyone is walking around looking a tad on the sallow side. For those chained to your desk this season, here are the products to help your skin retain summer's glow even when the clouds are gray.

Keeping your skin moisturized as the seasons change is a no-brainer, but did you know hydrated skin is also crucial for reflecting light evenly, which is responsible for giving you that "glow" we're all after?

One of my favorite things about the Liquid product is how refreshing and cool it feels when you apply it.
Dr. Jart+ Cerminide Liquid, $39, available at Sephora; Dr. Jart+ Cerminide Cream, $48, available at Sephora.
