This summer is almost over, which means it’s time to transition your summer skincare routine to be a bit more fall-friendly. Fall brings colorful trees, pumpkin spice and drier weather, so ensure your skin can adjust accordingly. Here are some tips for this upcoming seasonal change!
Moisturize and Hydrate
The best part of fall is that the weather is finally cooling down. With the fluctuation in temperature, your daily skincare routine will change with the weather. The first step is to keep skin moisturized and hydrated, not only on your face but also by increasing the body lotion you use daily. Thicker moisturizers lock in moisture and keep the skin feeling its best. Consider using a thicker moisturizer that can keep your skin hydrated for longer. Keeping your lips hydrated with a lip balm, Chapstick, or petroleum jelly should also be a top priority.
Although the days get shorter and the sun feels less intense, you still need to continue to protect yourself from harmful UV rays. Wearing sunscreen should be a priority throughout the year, not just within your summer skincare routine. Sun damage can still occur in cloudy conditions, including rain and overcast.
Less is More
As the air gets drier, it is best to cut down on powerful exfoliants or ingredients such as retinoids, glycolic acid or harsh exfoliators (AHA, BHA, etc.). Intense exfoliators can create microscopic cracks or tears in the skin barrier, leading to inflamed and dehydrated skin, especially in colder conditions. As you transition into your fall skincare routine, remember that less is more. Don’t overpower your skin.
PRX Derm Perfexion Treatment
While another season is upon us, your summer skincare routine should have a seamless transition. Much like layering your clothes in the colder months, you want to layer up on hydrating lotion and moisturizers. While it may seem like PRX Derm Perfexion is perfect for summer, it is a year-round treatment that can leave the face and body glowing. This procedure provides clients with immediate hydration while keeping the external layer of skin intact. PRX Derm Perfexion is the perfect treatment to transition into drier, colder weather this season because it tightens skin without any of the harsh side effects of a traditional chemical peel.
