Say Hello to Fall and Goodbye to Summer!
Just like the leaves change color on the trees, your skin care routine needs to change for fall. The cooler weather can cause your face to become dry, so it’s important your fall skin care routine incorporates products and treatments that will compensate for the cooler weather. If the summer sun and humidity took a toll on your skin, we’ll help you transform your complexion for fall. With these fall skin care tips, your skin will be ready to take on the new season and will be looking better than ever.
Microdermabrasion Is Your Friend
It’s always a good idea to consider getting a facial done when the new season is approaching. A classic, go-to facial that we love all part of our fall skin care routine is the microdermabrasion facial. This facial is great for achieving younger looking skin, smoothing wrinkles and stimulating collagen. Start the season out with a facial, like microdermabrasion, and feel refreshed and renewed for the new season.
Switch Up Your Moisturizer
If you have oily skin, you probably don’t have to use as much moisturizer in the summer. But keep in mind, even if you have oily skin, your skin can still dry out in the fall and winter, so you’ll need more hydration than you do in the summer. Try using a power-packed moisturizer that will keep your face hydrated on those brisk, windy fall mornings.
Don’t Forget to Exfoliate
Exfoliating is a crucial part of the fall skin care routine that most people forget. Contrary to popular belief, exfoliating doesn’t make your skin drier. In fact, it’s one of the best ways to treat dry, flaky skin. Now is the perfect time to introduce a face or body scrub into your fall skin care routine once or twice a week. But be sure not to over exfoliate because it will cause redness and dryness.
Start Fresh with A Facial
Rinse away the summer with a rejuvenating facial. A facial we always recommend is the Amerian-tronic Facial. In an hour and a half, it’s like you get six of the best facial techniques combined into one rejuvenating facial. This fall skin care treatment starts out with a light microdermabrasion to remove dead skin cells. Then, glycolic acid is applied and quickly removed, unveiling new fresh skin. Next, microcurrent is used to restore proper tone to the facial muscles. After that, an ultrasound wave is used to increase the level of collagen and firm your skin. And last but not least, a moisturizing and rejuvenating mask if applied. Voila – it’s like your skin is as good as new!
