Summer has come and gone. Swimsuits and strappy sandals have been replaced with sweaters and booties, everything is comfy cozy. Except your skin.
As the seasons change, so should your skincare routine! Do not worry- we’re not talking drastic changes, just some super easy-to-follow skincare do’s and don’ts for fall.
● Don’t stop wearing your SPF
This one should come as no surprise. We shouldn’t stop protecting our skin from UV damage just because the hot summer days are behind us. Wearing (and reapplying) sunscreen daily protects us from sunburns and skin cancers but it also protects against premature skin aging such as wrinkles and sun spots.
● Do incorporate retinol and chemical peels
Fall is the perfect time to add retinol into our nightly skincare routines since we are spending less time outside. Retinol is a powerhouse anti-aging product that encourages cell turnover and therefore helps diminish and prevent fine lines and wrinkles.
If your skin is feeling uneven, blotchy, or rough, consider scheduling an appointment for a chemical peel. Chemical peels are a great way to essentially begin this new season with a refreshed and ‘clean slate’.
For retinol we suggest: Retinol Complex 0.5
and for chemical peels: SkinMedica’s Vitalize Peel
● Do listen to your skin
Dependent on where you live, your skin will have unique needs this fall. If you live somewhere cold and windy, you may need to switch to a richer more hydrating moisturizer. We also suggest making sure you have a medical grade exfoliant to allow your products to penetrate deeper and get the full benefits.
Incorporating HA⁵ into your routine will immediately plump your skin and boost your skins own hydration without feeling too ‘heavy’ and AHA/BHA is a specially formulated cleanser that gently scrubs away dead skin, improving the appearance of skin tone and texture.
