As the humidity drops and the temperatures cool down, your skin may begin feeling dry. When seasons change, so too should your skincare routine. Instead of focusing on products that control excess oil and moisture on the skin, you should start to focus on products and services that prioritize nourishment and hydration. So, how can you keep your skin hydrated this fall?
Skincare Tips for the Fall:
- Use a Thicker Moisturizer
The skin care products and treatments you use in the summer won’t suffice for fall weather. Change out your light summer moisturizer for a more concentrated formula to use at night. If you’re unsure what to use, schedule a complimentary skin analysis consultation with one of our skilled medical staff. Laser Lights offers a variety of products that will help your skin retain hydration during the cooler months.
- Invest in a Humidifier
Home heating systems will inevitably dry out the air, exacerbating dry skin and medical conditions like eczema. Portable humidifiers are a great and cost-effective way to boost the humidity level in your home. If you are struggling with dry skin, consider using a humidifier while you sleep to return moisture to the air and to your skin.
- Drink Water
Drinking the recommended amount of water during the summer isn’t that difficult. The heat and humidity are reason enough to reach for your water throughout the day. But, as the weather cools down, you may not drink water as often as you should. Remaining hydrated throughout the day is both essential for your health and great for your skin. Staying hydrated throughout the fall months will help retain the moisture and suppleness your skin craves.
Laser Treatments That Help Improve Your Skin:
There is a reason why fall is considered laser season. During cooler months, you are more likely to avoid sun exposure, making this a perfect time for laser treatments. Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser Center has a variety of treatments available to address signs of aging and restore radiance to your skin
- Fractionated CO2 Laser Resurfacing
The first CO2 laser was introduced in the mid-1960s showing the world what lasers were capable of, and it has only gotten better since that time. The original CO2 lasers used to leave a distinct line of demarcation separating the treated and untreated areas of the skin. This line was not only unattractive but difficult to hide. Today, CO2 lasers can be used to treat signs of aging on the face and other parts of the body as well without the unwanted line of demarcation. This is due to the newer technology used today which focuses on treating fractions of the skin instead of the entire area at one time. Deep facial wrinkles, dark spots, and scarring are just a few issues that CO2 lasers can address, leaving you with a rejuvenated appearance.
- Rosacea and Facial Redness
Wrinkles and scarring aren’t the only conditions that lasers can treat. Rosacea and hemangiomas (red spots) have also been successfully treated with our lasers. While rosacea and hemangiomas may be harmless to one’s health, they can be difficult to cover up and often cause insecurity. By targeting the enlarged capillaries and blood vessels, redness will diminish as the blood vessels close and become naturally reabsorbed by the body. As a result, the flushing and redness will lessen to a highly manageable state with time. It’s true that there is no cure for rosacea and red spots, but our laser treatments can quickly help to lessen the appearance of facial redness and hopefully restore your confidence.
- Fire and Ice Facial
Nothing helps more than a facial to restore moisture and life to your skin. Our fire and ice facial is an intense resurfacing and rejuvenating facial that will improve moisture, soothe dryness, and repair damaged skin. This popular facial uses two different masques to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, improve your complexion and return your skin to a hydrated state. The first masque will heat up your skin to exfoliate and repair surface damage, while the second masque will cool and rejuvenate your skin. The result is a noticeably brighter complexion with an infusion of hydration and nutrients.
