By the time fall rolls around, many of us are looking forward to the ushering in of brisker, sweater-perfect weather. But that’s not all we have to rejoice about. More often than not, our skin-care routines need a few adjustments — namely, swapping out our summer moisturizers for options that are a little richer in hydration to combat the drier air (especially from our radiators and heating systems).
If you’re currently committed to a moisturizer, be warned: Our picks for best fall moisturizers will most definitely tempt you into trying something new. Don’t feel guilty, though. With these instant classics, it’s understandable to want in on formulas that promise all-day hydration, a calm complexion, and noticeable glows of both the dewy and matte variety. Along with some tried-and-true favorites, we’ve included some new formulations from brands like Olay, Clinique, and Fenty Skin — with potent ingredients like hyaluronic acid, retinol, centella asiatica (also known as cica), and niacinamide — that are pretty hard to resist.
No matter what you’re looking for, there’s a face cream formula out there for every kind of budget and skin type. Read on to prepare for the wonderful ways you can make sure your face is fully moisturized and protected against dryness for the colder months ahead.
