How to Get Rid of Skin Problems During Autumn Season article image by Mayerling Skincare

Autumn is a lovely time of the year! It’s picturesque, romantic, and offers a great opportunity to be outdoors and closer to nature. But while that is the case, it’s also a sensitive season for your skin. 

A change in weather comes with a change in skin situations, so don’t be surprised if you find skin problems during the autumn season. Not only is it the time for a shift in wardrobe, it could also be time to revisit your skincare. Here are some skin problems you may encounter during autumn with ways how to get out.

  • Your skin becomes sensitive

It’s not a shock that skin is affected by a change in the air. When the air is cool, our skin becomes dry and sensitive, leading to exfoliation and redness. One way to get out of this is by renewing your humidifier using a stronger form. In addition to this, you guessed it—moisturise, moisturise, moisturise!

The best moisturiser for mature skin is the Adec Vitamin Facial moisturiser. It’s great for sensitive skin as it provides steady and time-released moisture, giving your skin a flawless and radiant finish.


  • Your skin can develop acne

This may be obvious to many, but it’s still worth mentioning—seasonal transitions can lead to skin acne. The changes in humidity, as well as the stability of heat, can lead to increased acne in the autumn months, especially for those with acne-prone skin.

To fix this problem, do a few changes to your skincare routine. Go for soft and water-based cleansers this season, especially for those with sensitive skin. We highly recommend the Mayerling Facial Cream Cleanser, which is our favourite cream facial cleanser. This milky formula is lightweight and gentle, removing impurities and clarifying your skin.

Also, be sure to never forget your sunscreen. Yup, you read that right! Even in cold weather, you should still wear sunscreen. The Mayerling Tinted moisturiser SPF30+ is just what you need to get that layer of protection. Aside from protecting your skin, this skin renewal product moisturises and nourishes your skin.

  • Your skin becomes dry

Thanks to the cold air, skin can become dry, causing the deterioration of skin texture. Like we keep saying, be sure to moisturise your skin with something like the Adec Vitamin Facial moisturiser or the Mayerling Tinted moisturiser SPF30+. In the summer, replace your moisturisers with lotions, then back in cream form with the coming of autumn.

Most importantly, drink lots and lots of water! Water plays an important part in maintaining the moisture balance of the skin. Drink at least 2 litres of water a day, and have some herbal teas and seasonal fruits, which are also great for the skin.

  • Your lips get chapped

We all have probably experienced chapped lips before, and it’s not fun at all. Falling air temperatures can cause our lips to dry. Our lips are so easily affected by small changes in weather, so you can say that chapped lips aren’t a surprise. moisturise your lips with a trusty lip balm.

  • You could get keratosis pilaris

Have you ever experienced getting tiny and red bumps on your skin, usually on the back of your arms? That’s probably keratosis pilaris. This may be genetic, but if you only experience this during seasonal changes, it could really be just the weather. Go for something that contains salicylic acid and peels the skin.

Autumn Skincare Essentials

In addition to the products that we mentioned, the Autumn Repair Kit is another great addition to your routine. It contains an Anti-Stress Mask, a Facial Cream Cleanser, and an Exfoliant Cleansing Scrub. The mask soothes and relaxes the dermis and underlying muscles, allowing for the improvement of microcirculation. The Facial Cream Cleanser is one of our favourite skin renewal products because it cleans, nourishes, and protects. Lastly, the Exfoliant Cleansing Scrub thoroughly cleanses and decongests the skin as it removes dead skin cells.

Taking care of one’s skin during seasonal changes starts with knowing which skin renewal products to use. Look for anti-ageing skincare products that can meet the needs of your skin and can do the job amid the change of seasons. As long as you’re well prepared for the season, you’ll be good to go!
