A change in seasons can serve as a gentle reminder to edit your skincare regimen—or, if you’re a true beauty devotee (We see you; We love you), an excuse to indulge in a head-to-toe product overhaul. Whatever your style, the transition from summer to fall calls for richer, more nourishing formulations to help your skin gracefully adapt to cooler weather. It’s also a great time to begin thinking about your skin-repair strategy now that the sun isn’t quite as central to your personal brand.
Everyone’s skin is different, of course, but we suggest the following products as a starting point:
A cream moisturizer doesn’t always feel necessary in warmer months, but when temperatures drop, we turn to Crème de Fleur. Its marshmallowy texture lends a lightweight feel, but this cream moisturizer does not lack in the nourishment department. It protects the acid mantle, and—bonus—contains Triticum Vulgare (aka wheat germ oil) which is has been shown to accelerate tissue repair.
Fleur Vibrante is a year-round skincare essential—you should always have it on-hand, whether your goal is moisturization, repair, protection, or all of the above. It contains high doses of retinol-converting beta-carotene, which reduces oxygen damage caused by UV light and pollution—in other words, it addresses sun damage accumulated over the course of the summer. Lycopene, another key ingredient, helps protect against UV rays and radiation and destroys free radicals (which is necessary because the sun can cause just as much harm on cold, overcast days as sunny ones—and let’s not forget about the blue light from computers and smart phones.) Fleur Vibrante also contains the antioxidant OPC which preserves collagen and elasticity and helps reduce damage that leads to fine lines and wrinkles.
Change in climate or temperature can lead to irritated, inflamed skin. Rénénerant not only adds an extra layer of weightless hydration, but its organic rose distillate and Japanese rose fruit extract refresh, revitalize, and work to fight redness.
This golden oil contains a potent cocktail of fortifying antioxidants, flavonoids, and essential amino acids that absorb into skin tissue to optimize cellular function and address texture. It’s ideal for daytime use—apply after the bath or shower while the skin is still slightly damp, and it will absorb easily.
For a truly sensorial experience, enjoy a nice bath and then apply a thick layer of body balm to damp skin. Leave on overnight as a mask for deep hydration and relaxation. Jasmine Supérieur, one of our most sensual, seductive blends, contains lavender which aids in winding down and promotes quality sleep.
