1. Exfoliate

The natural pumice in our SuperSkin Care Cleansers sloughs off dead skin cells and pore-clogging nasties, which may have accumulated with summer’s heat, humidity and profuse sweating. Choose the Spring Cleaning Oil-Control Antibacterial Scrub for Oily SkinMoisture Rich Mild-Mannered Cleansing Scrub for Dry Skin, or Hydra Balance Smart Cleansing Scrub for Combination Skin. For the body, try our popular Id Clarifying Body Soap (popular among bacne sufferers) for a thorough body exfoliation.TIP: For a “glow-rious” full body exfoliation and deep moisturization, try our Coconut Drizzle Body Polish.

2. Clarify

Hair can get weighed down and wilted with product buildup and sweat. Fans of our Essence Skin-Saving Superwash Hair + Body Milk Shampoo swear by its ability to clarify without stripping away moisture. Its Essence Skin-Saving Milk Conditioner volumizes instead of flattening, which conditioners with heavy greases can sometimes do. Both are praised for their sublime softening and pimple-preventing prowess on forehead, cheeks, and upper back.TIP: Hair fried from summer sun, salt water and heat? Try Essence Skin-Saving Clark Wash Hair + Body “Big Softie” Shampoo for extra gentle follicle care.Photo: #skinthusiasm via Cecille on Instagram.For skin clarifying, see the next slide…

4. Get a Heavier Coat for Autumn

The best time to update to a heavier moisturizer is in the fall, not the dead of winter. You want to batten (fatten?) down the hatches before the dry, dry cold hits. Heavier oils will protect your skin’s barrier, helping it hold in as much moisture as possible before it seemingly disappears completely from the surrounding air. It’s not yet time for the biggest guns in moisturizing, but skin can benefit now from heavier humectants.One of our top tips: stock up on virgin coconut oil (its fatty acids are native to skin). Pore-friendly as virgin coconut oil is, it also helps skin rebuild lost lipids. Keep a bottle of our ultra-popular virgin coconut oil Know-It-Oil handy. Alone, it’s great for colder days in the fall, or to layer on top of your lotion of choice.TIP: There’s no reason why your actives need to be limited to facial skin. Illuminants+ Face-Hand-Body Lotion and Re-Everything Face-Hand-Body Lotion are excellent choices to extend your active therapy to the body.And don’t be lax about the lip lube: skin on the lips is delicate and can take quite a beating. Armada Moisturising + Protective Lip Balm 60+ combines deeply nourishing repair with tremendous protection. If you have very sensitive lips, try The Big, Brave Boo-Boo Balm (great to stock up on, too, for very dry patches of skin when winter weather really picks up.

5. Hold On To That Summer Love…

…we’re talking about sunscreen, not Danny Zuko. That cool nip in the air may dissuade you staying outdoors as much, but sun protection is a year-round priority. Armada Full-Spectrum, Indoor-Outdoor Sun + Light Screens are the only sunscreens with measured protection against (melasma-causing) indoor light. Use them every day to fight off dark spots, accidental sun exposure, and UVA through windows.
