Transitioning your skincare routine from summer to fall is essential for maintaining healthy, glowing skin as the weather gets cooler. Keep your skin glowing every season with our top tips for fall skincare.
Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate
Cool, dry air in the fall leads to dehydration. Switch to a heavier moisturizer or cream to give your skin the extra hydration it needs.
Specifically, look for medical-grade products with hyaluronic acid and ceramides that combat dryness and redness. If you’re particularly prone to dry skin, consider layering a hydrating serum below your moisturizer to lock in and protect the skin’s barrier.
Our Intensive Recovery Cream is specially formulated with cactus and yeast extracts to significantly reduce irritation caused by AHA’s and Retinoids. It soothes the skin, removes irritation, and reduces redness. Intensive Recovery Cream is further enhanced with four different ceramides to restore skin barrier function, which helps the skin maintain its natural structure. Maintaining this structure decreases water loss and increases natural moisturizing factors, which hydrates and protects the skin and significantly aids the skin in recovering after exposure to stress.
Be Gentle on Yourself and Your Skin
If you have oily skin, consider switching to a gentler, hydrating cleanser during the fall and winter to prevent over-drying your skin. Avoid harsh, foaming cleansers that strip away natural oils for a great way to get ahead of the season shift.
Additionally, when it comes to exfoliating, the trick isn’t to give it up; it’s to opt for gentler exfoliants like AHA and BHAs that remove dead skin cells and promote a smoother complexion without leaving the skin red and irritated.
Our Gentle Foaming Cleanser is a mild, sulfate-free, foaming cleanser that delivers superior cleansing while remaining gentle on the skin, leaving it soft and smooth. This cleanser also works to provide deep hydration and dramatically reduce irritation commonly experienced with sensitive skin. For sensitive or post-procedure skin, the Gentle Foaming Cleanser utilizes mild and soothing ingredients to cleanse and hydrate your skin effectively.
Don’t Skimp on the Sunscreen
The heat may be long gone, but the sun isn’t! Don’t forget to apply sunscreen daily, even in the fall. UV rays can still damage your skin, and it’s important to choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30.
Combining the power of an anti-aging moisturizer with a broad-spectrum sunscreen, our Hydro Essence SPF 40 is ideal for daily use to incorporate into any anti-aging regimen. This product combines moisturizing agents, antioxidants, and Hyaluronic Acid to boost the skin’s moisture retention and prevent fine lines and wrinkles. In addition, Hydro Essence SPF 40 protects the skin against UVA-aging rays and UVB-burning rays. This sunscreen and moisturizer combination is formulated as a gentle product to accommodate sensitive skin and post-procedure recovery.
Focus On Repair and Renewal
Incorporating products with ingredients like retinoids, peptides, or growth factors to support skin repair and renewal can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles that creep up as the skin dries out in the cooler months. An emphasis on encouraging cell turnover can ensure even texture and tone throughout the fall and winter.
Try Out Professional Treatments
Fall is an excellent time for professional treatments like laser therapy and microdermabrasion. With less sunlight and fewer outdoor activities to attend, it’s the perfect time to treat yourself to a rejuvenating treatment since exposing freshly treated skin to direct sunlight can increase the risk of post-treatment complications. No matter what your specific skin concern is, we can help you achieve a radiant complexion for the fall.
