For gorgeous skin from back-to-school through Thanksgiving and on into winter, we’ve got some tips for you. Come on in to Beatitude Aesthetic Medicine and Acne Center for personalized advice customized to your skin. These tips will help your skin make the transition from summer to fall flawlessly.
You might not be lounging on the beach, but you still need your sunscreen. Use sunscreen daily, no matter the season. A good SPF 15+ is generally enough for most days, but use a higher SPF if you’ll be spending time in the sun. If you’re running low on sunscreen, or if you want to try something new, ask us for a product recommendation. We carry a wide range of medical-grade skin care products and would love to help you find the right sunscreen for your skin.
Skip the Hot Showers
It’s getting colder. As the temperatures drop, avoid the temptation to warm up in a hot shower. Hot water melts the oils in the skin and washes them away. This can leave your skin feeling itchy, irritated and dried out. If you’re feeling chilly, grab a cup of coffee or hot cocoa instead of hitting the showers and enjoy better skin.
Try a New Moisturizer
During the summer months light, airy moisturizers often work best, but as the temperatures drop, your skin might appreciate something a little richer. If your skin is feeling dry as we transition into fall, it might be time to try a new moisturizer.
Don’t Forget the Lips
When we think of fall skin care, we often think of the skin on the cheeks, chin and forehead, but don’t forget, the lips are skin too. Start using a lip balm or moisturizer now to avoid sore, cracked lips mid-winter. A little prevention can make a big difference. Pucker up!
Say goodbye to summer once and for all with a good exfoliating treatment. A chemical peel is a great way to loosen and remove dead skin cells. We offer a variety of chemical peels from top skin care lines (including Obagi and Jan Marini) to freshen up your skin this fall. Many chemical peels require no downtime after treatment.
Fall is on its way, but with these skin care tips, you’ll look amazing. Call today to schedule a free consultation with Dr. Chang.
