After a hot summer, we can definitely say we’re looking forward to changing seasons and cooling temperatures. However, just because the seasons are changing, doesn’t mean you can’t keep your summer glow and clear skin. Check out Dr. Donofrio’s top tips for gorgeous skin this fall.
Routine, Routine, Routine
As the season’s change, so do your skin’s needs. While many may find they can get away with less moisturizer in the summer, drier weather means your skin needs the additional nourishment to stay hydrated and pliant. Maintaining your dewy, fresh look year-round starts with a trip to your medicine cabinet. Before fall is fully underway, we recommend revisiting your skincare regimen and swapping out summer-specific cleansers or moisturizers for ones that are tailored to tackle crisp weather. This re-evaluation should include:
Check Your Cleanser
While a summer skin cleanser may help tamp down excess oil production, using the same formula during the fall can dry out skin, causing it to age faster and lose its glow. If you’re planning on revitalizing your skincare regimen for the fall, we recommend starting with your cleanser. A good autumnal face wash shouldn’t leave your skin feeling tight or itchy.
Between the summer heat and excess sweating, chances are your face has collected its fair share of dead skin cells. Making daily or weekly exfoliation part of your fall skincare routine is crucial to keeping skin clear, meaning fewer blemishes and better skin health.
Looking for the key to glowing skin? A good moisturizer. Especially during the cooler months, when we’re dealing with colder temperatures outside and overusing heaters indoors. Keep your skin hydrated this fall by investing in a moisturizer designed for your skin type. If it has SPF in it, even better – the sun’s harmful rays can still damage skin cells even during the cooler months.
A solid at-home skin care regimen is only part of keeping healthy, glowing skin as the summer gives way to fall. Many in-office skincare treatments, including injectables and chemical peels, are designed to boost the appearance and health of skin, ensuring you feel confident in your appearance year-round.
Face Fall with a Fuller, Smoother Appearance
If you spent most of your summer outside and in the sun, chances are your skin has suffered at least a little sun damage. While it may not be completely noticeable yet, dead or dying skin cells caused by too much sun and not enough sunscreen can accelerate the appearance of aging. For patients who’ve already noticed signs that their skin has lost some of its youthful suppleness or volume, additional sun damage can speed up these symptoms.
Rather than let these conditions worsen over the fall and winter, preventive care with injectables can turn back the clock on these common signs of aging. Patients who’ve seen fine lines and wrinkles start to appear across the forehead or near the eyes and mouth have found BOTOX® to be the ideal solution for putting the aging process on hold. This injectable has also been shown to be an effective preventive option for younger individuals looking to take control of the way their skin ages. For individuals looking to add more, natural-looking volume to areas that have lost volume, Dr. Donofrio offers a wide array of hyaluronic acid-based injections, such as Restylane® and Radiesse®, to replace collagen in specific areas of the face.
Enjoy Full Rejuvenation Before Fall
For some patients, preparing for the changing seasons requires starting with a fresh slate. This can mean full facial rejuvenation through more comprehensive dermatological care. Treatments like fractional laser skin resurfacing or PRP facial rejuvenation are just a few of the many options available to help patients clear away damaged skin and kickstart the healing process. When combined with a personalized at home skincare regimen, many of our Madison patients are pleased to find their skin looks and feels fantastic well into the cold season.
