1. Take it easy.

"The biggest skin woes my patients complain about as they head into fall are uneven tone and rough, flaky patches," explains Dr. Diane Berson, Assistant Professor of Dermatology at Cornell's Weill Medical College. "This is usually because they spent the summer in the sun and sand." Before the mercury drops anymore, start treating yourself to a weekly, hydrating facial. We like these ones.

2. Don't scrimp on sunscreen.

Even though your beach-bumming days are numbered, don't slack on vigilant sun protection, no matter your natural skin tone. "As humidity levels drop, your skin isn't able to absorb as much moisture from the air," says Berson. "So, switch out your sheer sunscreens for formulas that contain moisturizing ingredients, as well as UV-blockers."

3. Exfoliate.

Want to hold on to those last remnants of your summer tan? Think again. Flaky skin (bronzed or not) can clog pores and dull the overall appearance of your mug. "In-office treatments, like microdermabrasion, are the most effective way to slough away dead skin cells," notes Berson. "But washing with a motorized cleanser brush also does the trick."

4. Tend to your body.

"The summer sun doesn't just dry out your cheeks, nose, and ears," warns Berson. "It also affects the lips, cuticles, feet, and knee caps." For a 360-degree approach to fall skin prep (that will also save you money later), opt for cream-based lip balms and slather up daily with body lotions enriched with hydrating ingredients like glycerin and Vitamin E.

5. Attack acne.

Seasonal shifts trigger stress symptoms in the body, leading to (gasp) even more breakouts than usual. "Just remember to tend to all of your skin instead of zero-ing in on specific blemishes" warns Berson. "If you spot treat pimples, you'll always be ignoring the zit brewing right next door." Find a skin-care regimen that uses salicylic acid and stick with it to ward off breakouts before they start. We like Olay Professional Pro-X Clear Acne Protocol Kit.
