This Moisturizer Is the Perfect Summer to Fall Transitional Skin Care

A person applies moisturizer to their cheek, a container of moisturizer, and a golden spatula is inserted into moisturizer.

Temperatures have begun to drop across the country, and while sure, some areas might still be warm, fall is undeniably well on its way. As such, it’s time to start thinking about how to transition your skin care from summer to fall. There’s one product that’s perfect for the job.

Tatcha’s The Water Cream can not only transition your skin care from summer to fall thanks to its lightweight but moisturizing formula, but it also helps with anti-aging.

If the name Water Cream sounds familiar, there’s a good reason why. It’s arguably one of the brand’s most well-known products and is often considered a cult classic thanks to its unique texture. The gel-cream uses burst technology that releases ingredients when applied to the skin. Many who use it for the first time describe it that way, as if cool bubbles are bursting and soothing the skin. Doesn’t sound too bad, right?

What makes the moisturizer so ideal for transitional skin care, though? It’s all about its lightweight but hydrating feel. As the months get colder, many reach for thicker, heavier moisturizers, but in fall, you don’t need to slather your face quite yet. The oil-free formula of The Water Cream won’t leave you feeling greasy and won’t create excess shine throughout the day.

In fact, the product uses an ingredient called Japanese Leopard Lily to mitigate excess oil while Japanese Wild Rose helps reduce the appearance of pores. As for its anti-aging properties, Tatcha has its own ingredient blend called Hadasei-3 which combines green tea, rice, and algae to boost skin radiance and improve brightness and glow.

If you’re looking to add more hydration to your skin as the fall weather arrives or just want a lightweight moisturizer that’s also good for anti-aging, Tatcha’s The Water Cream is a great option.
