    Transitioning Your Skin Care Routine From Summer to Fall

    We just covered the best ways to combat the dryer, colder weather of the fall for your hair, and now we’re diving into the changes you need to make to your skin care routine to avoid flaky, irritated, dull skin. At Pelican Water we’re big fans of water, and as the summer ends water is in shorter supply in the air around you. Follow these skin care tips to make the most of the fall and look radiant throughout the season.


    This first skin care tip is the most important, and the most obvious. Don’t simply get a generic moisturizer and apply it once a day. Take the time to find a moisturizer designed to treat your type of skin. People with oily skin should seek a different moisturizer than those who have flaky or irritated skin. Consult your dermatologist, and remember to apply moisturizer in the morning and before bed.

    Filter Your Water

    Skin care starts in the shower. As you are washing your face harsh chemicals may be irritating your skin, making it flaky, red, and dull throughout the day. That’s right: chlorine can be jeopardizing your skin care routine. Especially in the fall you need to avoid skin irritants, so now is the perfect time to outfit your shower with a Premium Shower Filter. Enjoy softer and more radiant skin by filtering chlorine out of your shower water for a happier, healthier complexion.

    Choose a Gentle Cleanser

    Facial cleansers that you can buy over-the-counter can dry out your skin if you use them too frequently or if they contain harsh chemicals. We’re not suggesting you skip the cleanser altogether — it’s imperative to wash your face! — But try to pick a cleanser that is gentle and contains naturally moisturizing ingredients like monoi oil or fruit extracts.

    Rely on Hydration Masks

    Mask treatments can work wonders in the fall, and you can even find masks that utilize seasonal essences and odors like pumpkin spice or cinnamon. Haven’t you always wanted to smell like your favorite latte? Replenish the moisture in your skin using a mask with ingredients like Vitamin E and Omega 9 nutrients to fight the visible signs of aging. Enhance your natural glow by choosing multiple types of mask treatments and rotate throughout the fall.

    Try a Face Mist

    Face mists help you remain hydrated during your busy day, revitalizing your skin by infusing it with moisturizing ingredients. Mist treatments don’t only promote a healthier glow and smoother skin — some mists set your makeup, tone the skin, act as a natural moisturizing serum, and cool your face to prevent breakouts. Invigorate your face with a product you can fit in your purse.

    Drink More Filtered Water

    If you are chronically dehydrated your skin will not be properly moisturized even if you use a variety of creams and lotions. Use our Hydration Calculator to determine how much filtered water you should drink over the course of one day. Increase your water consumption in the fall to avoid breakouts and enjoy smoother, healthier skin.

    By taking these specific steps you can look terrific throughout the fall and feel confident about your complexion.
