Our guide to Fall Skin-Care Preparion
Transitioning from summer to fall isn’t just tough on your wardrobe. Dry air and colder temps can do a number on already-sensitive skin. For some insider tips on how to best pamper your mug to take on seasonal climate changes, read more.
1. Take it easy
«The biggest skin woes my patients complain about as they head into fall are uneven tone and rough, flaky patches.This is usually because you spent the summer in the sun and sand. It is inportant to start treating yourself to a weekly, hydrating facial.
2. Don’t skimp on sunscreen
Even though your beach-bumming days are numbered, don’t slack on vigilant sun protection, no matter your natural skin tone. «As humidity levels drop, your skin isn’t able to absorb as much moisture from the air.Switch out your sheer sunscreens for formulas that contain moisturizing ingredients, as well as UV-blockers.
Want to hold on to those last remnants of your summer tan? Think again. Flaky skin (bronzed or not) can clog pores and dull the overall appearance of your mug.In-office treatments, like microdermabrasion, are the most effective way to slough away dead skin cells.
4. Tend to your body
The summer sun doesn’t just dry out your cheeks, nose, and ears,it also affects the lips, cuticles, feet, and knee caps. For a 360-degree approach to fall skin prep (that will also save you money later), opt for cream-based lip balms and slather up daily with body lotions enriched with hydrating ingredients like glycerin and Vitamin E.

5. Attack acne
Seasonal shifts trigger stress symptoms in the body, leading to (gasp) even more breakouts than usual. Just remember to tend to all of your skin instead of zero-ing in on specific blemishes. Find a skin-care regimen that uses salicylic acid and stick with it to ward off breakouts before they start. We like Aknetrol!
