As you put away your summertime swimwear to prepare for sweater weather, remember to give your skin some pampering. Warm days and time in the sun can take a toll on your skin’s health and appearance. Fortunately, a facial at a dermatology and cosmetic center can boost your complexion for the season ahead. Here are just some of the many benefits of post-summer facials.
Sweat, dirt, and sunscreen can all clog your pores, leading to summertime breakouts. While a summer skin care routine can keep acne in check, there may be some residual congestion at the end of the season. Professional facials can extract these lingering impurities. If you have acne prone skin, be sure to talk to your cosmetic dermatology provider about preventing acne in the fall and winter.
Sun exposure and chlorine can dry out your skin during the summer, so your complexion might be feeling dry and dull. A facial can gently exfoliate the dead skin cells that have built up on your skin, revealing smoother skin underneath. Professional facials are often more gentle than other exfoliation treatments, so you can return to your day without irritation. The dermatology and cosmetic center will tell you which side effects, if any, to expect following treatment.
Even if sunscreen application is second nature at this point, you might still have signs of sun damage. Your dermatologist may recommend regular facials as sun damaged skin treatment. A facial can reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. Just keep in mind that your dermatologist may recommend additional facials to achieve and maintain your desired results.
A number of factors can cause uneven skin tone. Summertime sun exposure and heat can lead to redness and sun spots. If you had warm-weather breakouts, you might have leftover acne scars. A professional facial can clear the pores and nourish the skin to help improve skin tone. This treatment can also be a great supplement to other cosmetic treatments like laser resurfacing, which may improve skin tone and texture even more.
Every season comes with its own skin challenges. While summer can cause sun damage and breakouts, fall and winter often lead to dry and tight skin. A facial can reset your skin by clearing congestion, infusing antioxidants, and smoothing out texture, so you can enjoy bright and even skin as the weather cools down. It can also be helpful to schedule routine facials throughout the fall and winter to pamper your skin and address dryness.
