26 skin care products to get you through transitional weather hell

Summer is officially over, so we can kiss that warm weather goodbye. But before we put on our cozy sweaters and knee-high boots, we have to experience the weird in-between temperatures. You know, when it’s cold in the morning and at night but hella hot during the day. With this transitional weather comes transitional skin—and yes, even that can get out of whack.

Depending on your skin type, you could experience dry, flaky patches on your face. You could even be oily during the day (when it’s warm) and dry during the night (when the temperature cools down). Thankfully, there are plenty of beauty products that can ease your skin care woes during this time.

Since everyone has different needs when it comes to weather-related skin issues, we rounded up more than 20 products for you to browse. Treat your skin to any of these products before the weather starts to chill. You’ll congratulate yourself for being ahead of the game.
