Transition Your Skin Care Into Fall

Cosmetic Dermatology Procedures NYCFall is finally here and with all the fun festivities and delicious pumpkin treats, it also brings cooler temperatures and drier air. No matter how you feel about the season, you can bet your skin is reacting to it as well. Here are some simple tips to consider this autumn.

Ease Up on Exfoliating

Though it may be tempting to exfoliate more when your skin gets a little dry, try to resist. You may be over-exfoliating skin and not giving it a chance to heal. Consider switching to a chemical exfoliator to not over-stimulate the skin. Shortening your showers and using cooler water can also help keep your skin hydrated.

Opt for a Thicker Moisturizer

Lightweight lotions may be great for summer but fall calls for something a little more substantial. Thicker creams provide a stronger hydrating barrier for the skin. Also, be sure to apply creams right out of the shower to better seal in that moisture.

Use Lip Balm and Eye Cream

If you’re not regularly using lip balm and eye cream, fall is a great time to start. Adding these products into your regimen can make the transition easier on your skin from those hot summer temps to colder weather.

Bring out the Humidifier

In case you haven’t noticed a theme, hydration is super important for your skin. If you don’t have a humidifier, invest in one. It’s best to begin using your humidifier as soon as you switch on the heat in your home.

Get Your Mask On

Wake up to hydrated, beautiful skin by wearing an overnight mask. Because your skin regenerates the most overnight, wearing a mask to bed is a simple addition to your routine that can make a big difference. Plus, who doesn’t love a little self-care?

Don’t Forget the Sunscreen

Sunscreen isn’t only for summer, make sure you’re still wearing the SPF in the fall, and all year long. Sunscreen keeps your skin looking younger and healthier and also lowers your chance of contracting skin cancer. Be sure you’re using at least SPF 30 for the best results.

We hope these tips help you have your best skin this fall. If you still have other skin concerns or have any questions don’t hesitate to contact our office today at (212) 962-1115.
