Fall is a beautiful time of year, with its crisp days and golden sunlight. But it also marks the beginning of some of the year’s toughest months for your complexion, as the air grows dryer and that sun-kissed summer glow starts to fade. (Translation: Flaky. Dull. Skin.) That could mean bad news for brides—but it doesn’t have to.
From buffing away dull, dry patches to brightening with skin-soothing seaweed, here are the must-have beauty tools we’re stocking up on this fall to keep our faces feeling—and looking—fresh. Grab yours to keep a healthy summer glow regardless of when you’ll be swapping vows.
Clarisonic “Mia” Sonic Skin Cleansing System

We love how soft and smooth the barely-there buzz of this Clarisonic skin brush leaves our face feeling. The best part? It’s set to an automatic timer, which makes it impossible to go overboard.
Mario Badescu “The Regimen” Kit

Chemicals can wreak havoc on a bride’s complexion, which is why we love the all-natural ingredients (think aloe and seaweed) used in Mario Badescu products. “The Regimen” kit includes a cucumber cleansing lotion, which restores balance to just-washed skin, and an aloe moisturizer, which is packed with SPF and adds a nice, healthy glow.
GlamGlow Supermud Clearing Treatment

This dark-gray super-goop—it uses charcoal to draw out dirt—is a cult favorite, and it’s easy to see why. Just smear a layer over your entire face and neck and, when it dries, gently wipe away with a warm, wet cloth. You’ll feel a whole new level of smoothness instantly. Plus, it zaps blemishes and other trouble spots in just a couple days’ time.
Borghese Sali Esfoliante Salt Scrub

We’ve kept this decadent, sea-scented salt scrub on the edge of our tub for longer than we care to remember, but for a good reason—the thick and decadent scrub goes on smooth, and its finely ground salt sloughs away dull, dry skin to reveal a soft new layer that your groom will love to touch. Bonus: It smells like the sea!
La Mer The Lip Balm

If there’s one facial feature that’s an absolute must on your wedding day, it’s kissable lips. La Mer’s wildly popular lip balm will help ensure you arrive at the alter with a perfectly plump pair, thanks to its blend of the brand’s original Creme de la Mer broth and a unique lipid complex. We’ll smooch to that.
