Growing up with an esthetician (skin care pro) mother, maintaining healthy skin was always a priority in our home. With my combination, change with the wind skin I liked to think that I was my mom’s biggest dermatological challenge. — Might as well add another one to the list of mother – teenage daughter challenges! — After going through a myriad of skincare products, I finally found a combination that works. 

In the Summertime, a lightweight cleanser and a layer of oil-free moisturizer is about all I need. When the temps start to cool, my skin reaches a level of dryness reminiscent of that last piece of burnt toast that no one wants. That’s when I kick things up a notch. 

My Fall beauty routine is about the only constant in my ever-changing 20something life. In a very particular order, it is as follows:

1. I always wash my hands with soap and water, then fully dry before touching my face. Even though you’re washing your face, you’d be amazed at how much dirt and oil you’re still depositing back on to it before cleansing.


2. Dermalogica Precleanse – This precleanse is great for removing that layer of makeup so your cleanser can focus on cleaning deep down into your skin. I massage this into my face with dry hands then wet hands and continue to massage into skin to emulsify. Then, of course, rinse off.

3. Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel – This one cleanser has seen me through my teens AND early 20s! It’s effectiveness lies in its ability to decrease the oily areas of my skin (T-zone, cheeks, and chin) and maintain my skin’s natural moisture.

4. Kiehl’s Oil-Free Lotion – Despite the dry nature of my skin, it’s oiliness somehow persists in odd areas and in odd parts of the day. That being said, my moisturizer MUST be truly oil-free. Kiehl’s moisturizer gives my skin the right amount of moisturizer that lasts throughout the day without overwhelming it.

5. Dermalogica Ultracalming Relief Masque – Once or twice a week I use this masque in the shower to reduce/prevent any flareups and decrease the redness. For those of us with combination skin, it’s great for bringing it back into balance. While I don’t personally have rosacea, this masque is also known to be ideal for those who do!

6. Last, but not least, drink LOTS of water. I drink an exorbitant amount of water throughout the day and night. For me, this has been scientifically proven to be the key ingredient to clear skin.



    With this routine, you can maintain that Summer after-glow while feeling fresh faced and ready for the Fall!
