The weather and our environment can take a toll on the appearance of our skin. It’s important to adjust your skin care regimen throughout the year, as the weather changes. Skin care should be a year round concern but the fall and winter months can be particularly harsh. With fall bringing cooler, drier air, many people will see changes in the moisture and texture of their skin. You may notice your skin feels tighter, perhaps itchy at times, these are effects of the dry weather that fall brings. The dry air is dehydrating your skin which can make fine lines and wrinkles more apparent.

Eating healthy and drinking plenty of fluids is definitely important for your skin health, but in the fall just washing and moisturizing and eating right, won’t give you the same results a good skin care regimen can. Your daily skin care routine is important and there are many products that can help protect your skin from environmental damages. In addition to a daily regimen, there are several treatments that will keep your skin from looking dull and tired as the seasons change. Everyone’s skin is different and the best treatments will vary based on your skin type.

One of the best options to keep that dead, crepey skin away and keep your face looking fresh is getting facials regularly. The HydraFacial is an amazing facial all year long, but particularly in fall because it hydrates your skin while it cleans out your pores and removes all of that dead skin. It also addresses many other skin issues including sun damage, acne, enlarged pores, dark spots and uneven skin tone. Getting a HydraFacial about once a month will help you keep your face moisturized and keep those lines and wrinkles away. In addition to the HydraFacial, there are a variety of other facials designed to target specific problems. Any of these facials can also be combined with dermaplaning, which carefully uses a small blade to slough off dead skin cells, in addition to removing wispy facial hair.

Depending on your skin type, a chemical peel can be a great way to get rid of that damaged, dry skin on your face. The Illuminize Peel also called the “Red Carpet Peel”, is a gentle peel that will exfoliate and brighten your skin immediately, with no downtime. The Rejuvenize peel is a stronger peel that penetrates deep into the skin treating more extensive skin problems like acne scars, sun damage, as well as uneven skin tone and texture.

For those who spend a significant amount of time in the sun through the summer, they may experience more skin damage or dark spots that others. In some cases, the best treatment to get your fall routine will started is with laser treatments like the IPL to treat dark spots. The best time to get an IPL for dark spots is after your tan fades. This laser treatment pulls the color out of your skin, leaving a nice even colored skin tone.

The first step to having bright, glowing skin this fall is scheduling a free skin assessment with one of our skin care experts.
