After a long, sweaty summer, your skin deserves a little TLC, and the doctors at Los Angeles area Eyesthetica know exactly how to help. Here, they share a few products and techniques to help you rehab your skin after summer and transition your routine for fall.
Try a Cleansing Brush
If your face feels rough and dull after a summer of tanning, swimming and sweating, it’s time to acquaint yourself with the Clarisonic skin cleansing system. The gentle rotating bristles of the cleansing brush are designed to loosen dirt, makeup and other gunk trapped in your pores. These brushes have been shown to clear up skin conditions like acne and rosacea and improve the overall tone and texture of the skin.
Restore Smooth Skin Texture with All-over Exfoliation
Do you have dry, scaly patches on your elbows, knees, feet and other areas? Try a heavy-duty body scrub to slough off dead skin cells and reveal smoother, brighter-looking skin. A loofah or body brush enhances the exfoliating power of these products.
Switch Up Your Moisturizing Routine
Ideally, you want to follow up all that skin-sloughing with the application of a hydrating moisturizer. Since the fall weather is a little drier and brisker, your facial moisturizing needs tend to shift. Reach for a slightly thicker and more luxurious moisturizer than you used during the summer. Try one of our SkinMedica moisturizing creams for the face and Dove Extra Dry Cream Oil Body Lotion.
Repair with Retinoid
Sun damage is one of the most common summer aftershocks, and nothing treats it quite like retinoid. If you have post-summer sun spots, hyperpigmentation, freckles, fine lines or wrinkles, look for topical skin care products that contain retinol. Start with our SkinMedica Retinol at the 0.25% strength and move up to a higher concentration to optimize results.
Don’t Toss Your Sunscreen Yet
Just because the weather is slightly cooler doesn’t mean you’re safe from the sun. Now is not the time to be careless! If you’re planning for outdoor activities, be sure to apply sunscreen ahead of time and throw a bottle into your bag.
Speak to a Skin Care Professional
The doctors at Eyesthetica perform professional skin rejuvenation treatments, such as laser skin resurfacing and dermal filler injections, to make over your skin for fall. We can customize a treatment or product regimen to your unique skin care needs.
