Optimal skin care in the fall

skin care in the fall

Summer is coming to an end, which not only affects some people’s mood, but also the appearance of their skin. With the drop in humidity and falling temperatures, many people are struggling with dryness and an impaired skin protection barrier. But we have good news: our skin can be just as beautiful in the colder months as it is in the fall. Provided the care is right.

The right skin care in fall

In autumn, our skin especially needs moisturizing active ingredients and lipids that stabilize our skin’s protective barrier. In this article, we explain which ingredients are involved and which products contain them.


The skin’s protective barrier – the foundation for beautiful skin

The skin’s protective barrier is essential for healthy and beautiful skin. After all, it functions like a natural protective shield and regulates our skin’s water balance. Optimal hydration is particularly important for a beautiful complexion. If the skin loses moisture, it lacks suppleness and elasticity, which can lead to lines and dryness wrinkles.

If the skin barrier is damaged, this usually manifests itself in dry, rough patches or unwanted redness. Furthermore, dehydration of the skin can lead to dryness lines.


Especially in autumn, skin care should contain skin barrier-strengthening and hydrating ingredients. Ceramides, panthenol, squalane or certain oils such as almond oil are particularly good.

Deanol Triple-Lifting Cream
is the ideal care product for all skin types in the fall. The highly effective formula contains valuable active ingredients such as panthenol and squalane, which strengthen the skin barrier and protect against moisture loss. Together with the moisturizers glycogen and hyaluronic acid, Deanol Triple-Lifting Cream ensures optimum hydration of the skin. Antioxidants such as vitamin E and Q10 provide additional protection against free radicals. This care is aimed at anyone who wants to counteract the first signs of skin ageing and support skin health.

Protection of the skin’s protective barrier with vitamin C

Skin care with antioxidant active ingredients can neutralize free radicals and thus protect the skin barrier. The most powerful antioxidant is vitamin C. It is a true skincare all-rounder that we can use all year round.

Vitamin C provides antioxidant protection and thus ensures that free radicals are neutralized and our skin’s protective barrier remains intact. Vitamin C also firms and smoothes the skin and reduces the signs of ageing.

And what about retinol in the fall?

Of course, we don’t want to do without the number one anti-aging ingredient in autumn either. And we don’t have to – provided our skin’s protective barrier is in good condition. Once this foundation has been laid, nothing stands in the way of a retinol treatment.



  • Always use retinol in the evening
  • The same applies in fall: apply sunscreen the following day
  • Slowly increase the retinol concentration
