There are so many reasons to love fall. The weather cools, the leaves change color, and it’s the perfect time to enjoy warm drinks and all the pumpkiny goodness we can get our hands on. One unfortunate side effect that comes with fall though, is that with the sudden temperature drops our skin can become dry, itchy, and irritated. We have compiled a few simple ways you can switch up your skincare routine for fall so you can keep looking your best.
Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize: Dryer weather = dryer skin, so it’s important to make sure you are moisturizing morning and night. It’s important even for people with oily prone skin to find a moisturizer that works for you. FACTORFIVE regenerative serum contains low molecular weight hyaluronic acid that is a natural, powerful, non-clogging ingredient that can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water, making it a great moisturizer.
To double-down on hydration, we recommend following up our serum with FACTORFIVE anti-aging cream. It is lightweight enough to not feel heavy, but delivers a powerful array of moisturizing ingredients and is designed to lock-in all the beneficial ingredients (AKA our star ingredient, stem cell conditioned media) from your serum and cream.

Use a hydrating cleanser: Fall is the perfect time to switch up your cleanser and opt for something a little more hydrating that won’t strip your skin of its natural moisture. This will help remove makeup, dirt, and sweat from a long day at the pumpkin patch, or perhaps a stroll through your local corn maze. We highly recommend consulting with your aesthetician to help you find the right cleanser for your skin type.
Exfoliate: Exfoliation is very important for healthy skin, and if you haven’t introduced an exfoliant to your skincare routine yet, now is the time. There are two main types of exfoliants we recommend: AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) and BHA (Beta Hydroxy Acid). Very simply put, AHAs are great for helping diminish the appearance of fine lines and sun spots, while BHAs are slightly more gentle, and good for acne prone skin, or those with redness or rosacea. You can find exfoliants with either or both, but as always we recommend consulting your aesthetician for what product is right for you.
We recommend exfoliating once or twice per week (never every day, as this may dry out your skin), and following up with FACTORFIVE regenerative serum for the ultimate at-home facial. Because the exfoliant opens your pores (this may be felt as a slight tingling and flushness on the face), the growth factors and other beneficial ingredients in FACTORFIVE will penetrate even deeper into your skin, not only activating the cells of the skin for enhanced health and circulation, but also your own stem cells to produce collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid naturally.
Pumpkin Everything: It may seem gimmicky, but pumpkin actually contains vitamins A, C, and E, along with antioxidants, zinc, potassium, and fruit enzymes which are all great for your skin. And since we’re putting pumpkin into everything, why not our skincare routine?
First and foremost, we recommend requesting a pumpkin enzyme mask from your aesthetician with a follow-up of our FACTORFIVE post treatment serum. If that isn’t available to you however, you can absolutely make a little DIY pumpkin mask of your own!
Pumpkin Face Mask:
- ¼ cup organic pumpkin puree
- 1 raw egg
- ½ teaspoon honey
- ½ teaspoon apple cider vinegar
Mix everything together, and apply to your face. Let it sit for 15–20 minutes. Rinse and apply usual skincare products.
Don’t forget the eyes: Last but not least, make sure to try our FACTORFIVE eye/lash cream to help decrease the look of bags and dark circles under your eyes after staying up late watching scary movies. Not only does this powerhouse cream help reduce the appearance of aging around the eyes, but it also contains growth factors, biotin, and redensyl that are formulated to quickly grow your lashes and brows for an effortless look.
Our eye/lash cream does NOT contain harsh ingredients that will leave your eyes red and stinging, but is formulated with soothing ingredients (hello aloe and green tea extract!) to leave you feeling refreshed and looking your best.
