Fall Skin Care


As you enjoy the last great days of summer, ask yourself: How is your skin doing in the sun?

As fall approaches, we start to think of looking our best for the festive season. Now is the time to start restoring our skin to a youthful glow. As you look in the mirror, you suddenly see a few fine lines, possibly some areas of sun-damaged skin and photo-aging, all due to exposure by the summer sun.

Before you plan what events you want to attend, now is the time to start repairing and revitalizing your face, neck and deltoid area, to highlight your unique look.

What habits have you picked up or let slide over the summer months from your daily routine.

Here are some ideas that will help your skin look and feel it’s very best:

A deep facial cleanser, will assist in removing some of the summer damage built up on your skin.

A lactic peel is a deeper cleanse which aids in removing sun damaged skin cells. Then follow up with a soothing moisturizing mask, to soften the fine lines, and signs of photo-aging.

Reassess your daily moisturizer, to one that contains vitamins E, and A. This will give your skin a healthy glow (face, neck and exposed chest area) without an oily look. The addition of a night cream with AHA, or rational to help promote collagen synthesis and a more youthful complexion.

As the days start to shorten, the sun stays with us everyday, even in winter as rays reflect from the snow.

A broad spectrum sunscreen with a SPF of 30 should be a part of your daily routine to protect the skin from sun damage which can lead to premature aging and sings of photo-aging.
