As summer fades into the past, many of us alter our makeup and skincare routines according to the dropping temperatures; whether it is replacing your bright coral lip crayon with a deep berry liquid lipstick or exchanging your feather-light moisturizer with SPF  for a more thick, buttery moisturizer, the products we use change with the seasons. There are, however, three stand-out skincare favorites from summer that I plan to love all year long.

Ever since purchasing it during my trip to Selfridges in London, the Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask has truly done wonders for my skin and changed my perception of face masks for the better. It deeply hydrates and brightens and contains only the most clean ingredients, making it ideal for my dry, sensitive skin. My face looks noticeably more radiant and feels significantly more plump after using this product, making it worth the $48 price tag. It did not feel overly thick or greasy during the summer heat, yet I know it will come to the rescue in the colder months as well.

It is safe to say that the Volition Beauty Celery Green Cream* has been my obsession this summer, but it is also safe to say that it is not going anywhere anytime soon. Even though it is an extremely lightweight gel, it effectively replenishes my skin’s moisture for around 24 hours due to its hyaluronic acid and peptide formula, meaning it will be great for winter mornings when my skin is extra dry. If you are interested in learning more about this new release, you can find more information here.

With a luxurious mixture of vitamins, antioxidants, fatty acids, and, of course, 24-karat gold, the Farsáli Rose Gold Elixir is very multifunctional and I love using it during the summer as much as I love using it during the fall, winter, and spring. Since my skin is not as dry during the summer, I have been using it as a post-sun treatment to recover from long days at the beach. Once my skin gets more dry and flaky, however, I will be using it as a daily moisturizer and also mixing it in with my foundation.

I would love for you to leave your year-round beauty favorites in the comments below so we can all find new products to use regardless of the season.
