You had great fun this summer, but now it has come to an end and you’re probably noticing the difference in your skin — if not now, very soon. As the seasons change and you switch your wardrobe choices, you should also switch your skin care routine to accommodate the cooler autumn weather.
If you’re not sure which autumn rejuvenation treatments to go for, don’t worry, our skin care specialists at Wake Health Medical Group shares recommendations to help you adjust your skin care routine suitably this fall.
Exfoliate for better skin this fall
Autumn is a symbol of renewal. This fall, renew your skin with a stimulating autumn rejuvenation treatment that includes exfoliation. Performed about twice a week, a gently formulated exfoliating treatment will unclog your pores and remove dead skin cells for a vibrant, healthy-looking complexion.
Fall facial moisturizers
While you may prefer a lightweight moisturizer for summer months so your face and other skin doesn’t feel oily or weight, you will want to opt for a different type of moisturizer for the fall. The air is dryer during autumn months due to cooler temperatures. So your skin will feel dry and flakey if you’re not using a moisturizer that is appropriately formulated. Choose an oil-based moisturizer that is non-clogging to provide your skin the protection it needs from the dryness that fall weather brings. And don’t forget you can also augment your moisturizer with a professional facial at our practice.
You must not forget sunscreen
While it may not feel like beach weather in fall and the sun is hidden behind the clouds, the harmful ultraviolet rays are ever-present — all seasons, rain or shine. So don’t forget to apply a broad spectrum sunscreen of at least SFP 15 before heading out to start your busy day.
