We’ve all been in a skin rut where we’ve bought the same cleanser for the same reasons for months (or even years). This fall, it’s time to go back to basics with a 3-step system and a deep cleansing sponge. Skincare shouldn’t be difficult, and every once in a while it’s good to break up your usual routine with something simple that your skin needs. Check out what we recommend below and you’ll have clear skin in time for your first pumpkin spice latte of the season.

For clear skin, once and for all

Skin can be finnicky in the fall–the dry, cool air, the temperature changes and the moisture levels in the air can all affect skin. Luckily, a simple all-purpose skin cleansing system is all you need to keep skin regular. The beads in this cleanser gently remove dead skin cells without stripping skin of moisture, and the additional lotions help keep skin soft, clear and even. What more could you ask for?

The Secret Weapon

Using your hands to wash your face is fine, but for an even better clean, a cleansing sponge is the way to go. Wet the sponge, apply your cleanser of choice and work it into a lather in a circular motion on your skin.
