As the summer starts to dwindle down, it’s time to think about a new game plan for the fall season because our skin never stands still. It constantly responds or reacts to its environment, either intrinsically with diet, hormones, medications, and illness or extrinsically by pollution, sun exposure and heating.
Post-summer is a great time to focus your efforts on upping your skincare routine, especially after many months outdoors. We accumulate some sun damage over the summer period, even if we are diligent with sunscreen and avoid the strongest sun rays during peak hours. Therefore, the period right after summer is an ideal time to start the process of damage repair.
Whether you’re dealing with sun-induced damage and pigmentation, dryness and dehydration or acne here are the best ways to look after your skin ahead of the fall season.
Vitamin C for hyperpigmentation
After increased time in the sun, you might be suffering from pigmentation. The best way to tackle pigmentation at home is…? Vitamin C. Vitamin C is one of the most studied, most evidence-based, and most beneficial molecules in modern active skincare products.
If you want to tackle pigmentation as we move into autumn, include a Vitamin C serum like Pure Fiji’s Kakadu Super Vitamin C Brightening Serum with Hyaluronate + Bakuchiol in your morning routine. This powerful blend will dramatically improve radiance and luminosity while delivering an instant moisture surge and visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation – rapid results for glowing skin.
Apply a mask
When September rolls around, it can be an ideal time to invest more time into your skincare, especially if you are experiencing breakouts or congestion. In the summer, increased heat and heavier products on the skin may lead to more follicular blockages and acne spots.
Look for masks that contain ingredients like papaya extract like Pure Fiji’s Papaya Purifying Enzyme Masque. Restore the skin’s radiance with this highly effective papaya fruit enzyme masque. Enhanced with free garden sprout extract to lighten age spots and brighten skin tone. This multi-tasking masque will purify, resurface, and rejuvenate skin leaving you with a healthy glow.
Up the hydration
If your skin is feeling particularly sun-parched, it’s time to up the ante on hydration. As always, the hero ingredient here is hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a structural molecule found throughout the body that acts as a natural ‘humectant,’ meaning that it draws water to itself. Hyaluronic acid in skincare utilizes this humectant effect to draw water to the skin and act as a moisturizer. Apply a hyaluronic acid-packed serum or moisturizer to your skin morning and night.
We think you’ll absolutely fall in love with our newest hyaluronic product. Drench your skin in moisture with this next generation supercharged Hyaluronic Booster 8.

Hit the spa for a facial
To really get your face feeling soft and glowing, why not treat yourself to a spa facial? As the season transitions from summer to autumn, the skin needs to be balanced and repaired in readiness for the cooler climate and the lower humidity caused by central heating. This is a great time to visit the spa for a professional hydrating facial.
Upgrade your body care regime
While we often remember to take care of our face, we sometimes neglect the skin on our bodies. After a summer of showing more skin, this is the ideal time to change that. Skin can often become very dry at the end of summer due to swimming pools, sea swimming, golf, tennis, and more exposure to the elements.
Taking time to moisturize your body every day is very important. Look for botanical oils that are high in antioxidants like Pure Fiji’s Hydrating Body Lotion. A complete bio-network of essential nutrients and vitamins for your skin's daily requirements, adding vitality and softness. It’s light with an airy texture; it’s a silky-soft testament to moisture that melts effortlessly into skin. Passionflower contains antioxidants which are ideal for all skin types and those prone to breakouts. It also protects against free radical damage.
Check that your shower gel isn’t too stripping as well. Anything that makes your skin feel squeaky clean and tight is going to dry it out.
Check your lifestyle
A 360 approach to skincare is always important. After a summer of burning the candle at both ends, it can be nice to look at our diet and lifestyle once again as we hunker down for fall & winter. Drinking lots of water, clocking in a good night’s sleep, practicing meditation, and filling your plate with fruit and vegetables are all going to improve the way you look.
Summer has most likely taken a toll on all skin types, no matter how careful you were about sunscreen or chlorine exposure. And the cool, dry air heralding the arrival of autumn brings with it its own skin troubles. It’s important to take the time to properly treat your skin and start up a new skin regimen geared towards both healing the damage already done and protecting from future damage. You got this ladies!
