Transitioning from Summer Skin: Time to Repair
- Posted on: Sep 15 2018
Fall is a challenging time because it’s a time of transition. It’s warm enough to wear shorts and sandals, but the swimming pools are closing and kids are going back to school. Transitioning your brain and schedule from summer to fall and winter takes a little effort, but we’re here to help. Your skin is struggling to transition to fall and, just like kids going back to school, your skin needs a little help to get back into the groove. Red, blotchy, flakey skin is common during fall and winter, but that doesn’t mean it needs to be your daily experience this fall. Keep reading to learn about some of the best ways to keep your skin looking happy and healthy when the weather starts to turn.
The moisture in the air is one of the biggest reasons our skin is happier and looks better in the summer. If you travel a lot, you may notice that your skin looks healthier when you’re in warm, humid air, and it looks a little under the weather when you’re in cold, dry air. But, fall is no short-term vacation, and your skin is transitioning to adjust to the new chill in the air.
Exfoliating regularly can help your skin cope with the new dry air moving in. Removing dead skin cells not only helps your skin look happier (and less flakey), but it also helps your skin function better. Moisture is better able to move throughout your skin, and products can do more when they are absorbed effectively. Which brings us to our second recommendation.
Moisturizing can make a huge difference when it comes to your skin in the fall. Swap out your lightweight moisturizer for something more rich, and make sure to incorporate eye cream for delicate skin around the eyes.
This is the best season to treat yourself and your skin. Sun spots, fine lines, and scarring can affect your self esteem, so why let those linger any longer? Fall is the best time to try laser skin resurfacing, because your skin is less likely to be in the sun. That means better healing with less UV damage. Help your skin transition to fall by giving it a boost now with a tailored laser skin resurfacing treatment.
