It feels like summer just started, but autumn is already right around the corner. As you gather up back to school materials and prepare for football season to begin, you also need to plan for healthy autumn skin. Careful skincare shouldn’t stop after Labor Day.
Evaluate Your Sunscreen Policy
What type of sunscreener are you? Some people only apply sunscreen when they are lounging in a bikini at the beach, while others apply anytime they step outside. Since the sun’s UV rays are damaging regardless of the time of year, temperature, and cloud cover, it’s critical that you continue to use sunscreen in the fall. Sun exposure depletes and damages the collagen in your body, and collagen is absolutely vital for firm, elastic, supple skin. As August turns into September and October, remember to apply an SPF that protects against UVA and UVB light.
After a long, hot summer, your skin will be more than ready for a reset to welcome the cooler weather. Plus, if you spent a great deal of your summer outdoors, hiking, swimming, and playing, then your skin is probably dull and rough from all of the wear and tear. Head to your favorite spa for a facial to rejuvenate your skin. Consider the SilkPeel, a revolutionary treatment that combines diamond tipped microdermabrasion with the infusion of nutrient-rich serums to improve and revitalize the skin, as well as vacuum out blackheads, pimples, dead skin cells, and excess oil. Your skin will look better than ever!
Check In With Your Dermatologist
The sun can wreak serious havoc on your skin, but you may not know it until a visit to your dermatologist. Your derm will check for suspicious moles, let you know if you have concerning sun damage, and assess the overall health of your skin. Your visit could be an important wake up call if you are at any risk of skin cancer, something that you definitely want to know sooner rather than later!
