8 Small Skin-Care Tweaks To Help You Transition From Summer To Fall

Illustrated by Elliot Salazar.
A change of season typically means a change in the way skin behaves, often resulting in dryness, breakouts, and a general lackluster appearance. Although it may seem counterintuitive, breakouts can actually increase during the fall season. The oil flow that takes place in the skin during the summer months is still occurring, yet the cooler air is creating layers of dead skin cell buildup. This traps oil and bacteria beneath the surface of the skin, which leads to an increase in breakout activity. On top of this, skin may start to require more hydration. You don't need to overhaul your skin-care routine, but you do need to make some minor tweaks to your regimen to ensure that skin stays healthy during the seasonal change.

Make the transition flawless with these tips.
