It’s that time of year again, the wind is getting crisper, the leaves are changing color and the PSL can be found in the hands of coffee lovers everywhere. The first day of fall is fast approaching (9/22), and that means it’s time to double up on your Essential Serum. Weather and temperature changes can really do a number on your skin. Ever go from perfectly moisturized to dehydrated, flaky skin in a snap? The best remedy is simple – protect your skin and keep it moisturized.

I typically suggest using one to two pumps of serum during the day for my face and three to four pumps of serum at night, but when the weather calls for a little extra, I’ve been known to use up to five or six pumps at night – and that’s just for my face. I use the same amount for my neck and my décolleté as I do my face because I want everything to age at the same rate.

A trick that I use to get a little extra serum in my morning routine is to mix 1 pump serum with a half spoonful of the Kari Gran Mineral Foundation. Not only does this create a sublime liquid foundation, it also gives you that extra little boost you need on those particularly drier days. (Psst… like this little trick? Check out our Customizable Liquid Foundation or add protection with our Tinted SPF.)

This time of year our lips are particularly susceptible to chapping so, be sure to pull out that little black pot of Lip Whip a couple extra times a day. Both the peppermint and cinnamon pimenta berry varieties are softly scented to heal and protect chapped lips without a burning sensation.

Stock up Kari Gran essentials and keep your skin hydrated all fall long!
