End-Of-Summer Skincare Essentials
By Laurie Jamaitus September 08, 2011
Wondering how to tweak your skincare regimen for fall? With the long, hot summer drawing to an end, you’re probably thinking of putting away the sunscreen and kissing your gorgeous tan goodbye. But not so fast—your skin will still need a daily dose of SPF through the fall, and with the help of self-tanners, you can still keep your bronze glowing strong. Try these tips to keep your post-summer skin protected and beautiful.
Just because the summer heat is fading, doesn’t mean you should cool it on your SPF routine. The sun’s damaging rays beat down on your skin year-round, so slather on sunscreen daily to protect and prevent damage.
Lancome Bienfait UV SPF 50+ Super Fluid Facial Sunscreen, $35 at Sephora.com |Neutrogena Wet Skin Sunblock Spray SPF 30, $9.49 at Neutrogena.com | Peter Thomas Roth Instant Mineral SPF 30, $30 at Peterthomasroth.com
Even though you’ve probably applied sunscreen religiously throughout the summer (or at least we hope so!), it’s likely you’ve probably felt the effects of too much UV at least once or twice. Smooth on these after-sun moisturizers to prevent long-term damage and soothe skin.
When the weather starts getting cooler, it doesn’t mean you have to ditch your summer bronze. These fast, easy and best of all, safe self-tanners will keep your glow going into the next season.

If you want to maintain a summer glow but are looking for something a little more subtle than a self-tanner, try a lotion that will gradually tan your skin over time for a gorgeous effect that looks natural and not overdone.
