Caring for Your Autumn Skin
Posted on March 04 2014
While the autumn weather may encourage outdoor activities, your skin will retain less moisture because of the cooler, drier air. The same happens indoors as the heat goes on and up. Key symptoms of “autumn skin” include dryness, fine lines, dull and sallow skin tone, sun and age spots, flaking and irritation as well as the flare-up of some chronic conditions. Your skin can remain beautiful and glowing, however, if you treat it correctly and make some minor adjustments to your beauty regime to account for the change of seasons.
During the fall, the skin needs extra nourishment and protection. Three things that everyone should do to protect their skin in the autumn include drinking lots of water to remain hydrated, applying moisturizer or CoQ10 oil before going outside to give it time to be absorbed and, importantly, continuing to use a 50+ sunscreen containing UVA, UVB.
Treatments such as a medical grade peels, and twin light laser treatments are also advised at this time to help prepare your skin for winter.
A medical grade peel comprises a solution of exfoliating agents, which is applied to the face to remove the rough upper layer of skin and to stimulate rejuvenation of new skin cells. The process tightens and smooths skin, resulting in fewer lines, blemishes and age spots and more even pigmentation.
TwinLight Laser treatments are unlike traditional treatments such as dermabrasion and chemical peels, the unique characteristics of laser skin resurfacing allow more accurate and precise control over the treatment process. Past skin rejuvenation procedures treated large areas of skin, whether aged or not. But with Fotona’s revolutionary TwinLight® Fractional Rejuvenation method, the laser light precisely targets imperfections in the skin, leaving the surrounding healthy skin untouched. The heat from the laser energy also stimulates the production of new collagen in the dermis, and the surrounding, untreated skin helps to speed the rejuvenation process.
