The current state of the world is ever-changing, to say the least, but a few things are guaranteed when fall rolls around (whether you like them or not): the ubiquity of pumpkin spice everything, Bath & Body Works candles, oversized cardigans, and brand-new products to accommodate your changing skin.
Out of all the fun fall categories, the latter is our favorite — mostly since we’ve spent all summer trying to beat stress breakouts and maskne. As you clear out empties from your medicine cabinet, get excited to make room for a handful of new launches, from fancy face oils that won’t clog your pores to toning mists that’ll make skin care feel like self-care.
Ahead, we rounded up all the skin-care launches worthy of a spot in your updated fall routine.
