Changing temps and cooler weather means our skin is in full transition mode from summer to fall. Adjusting to the shifting season can cause drier-than-usual complexions, so you need a day-to-day hydrator that is up for the challenge. Read on to learn about three moisturizers for every budget that our beauty team swears by. (Photo via Getty)
Zoey Washington, Senior Fashion and Beauty Editor: “I swear by Neutrogena Oil-Free Facial Moisturizer Lotion With SPF 35 because it is the ideal balance between a lightweight formula and heavy-duty protection. The best thing about this solution is that it gets the job done even as the seasons change. The built-in SPF 35 protects against summer sun damage, while the oil-free formula keeps me hydrated (but not greasy) during fall and winter. Not to mention that it pairs perfectly with my pricier skincare regimen.”
Beth Wischnia, Beauty Editor: “I recently switched over to Tatcha The Water Cream. I started using it this time last year, and it was just what my skin needed, so I’m doing it again this year. The lightweight moisturizer is an ideal texture for my extra dry (and sensitive) skin and never leaves me looking oily. Beyond that, the packaging is beautiful and I’m addicted to the clean, fresh scent.”
Sharon Tanenbaum, Executive Editor, Style: “Well Within Beauty Planted in Beauty Nourish + Protect Antioxidant Moisturizer is my summer-to-fall transitional moisturizer because, well, it smells so damn good. Yes, it's chock full of good-for-my-skin ingredients like avocado and acai berry, but the subtly zingy scent wakes my senses up and instantly calms me. I struggle with combination skin that can flip with the seasons, but the lightweight, hydrating cream never weighs me down. After application, my skin looks and feels smooth and, dare I say, younger."
