Fall in Love with Your Skin
Autumn is the time to combat damage and dryness

Fall is right around the corner and before you know it temperatures will start dropping below 100 degrees! As the weather cools down, it is a good time to address all the damage your “fun in the sun summer” did to your skin. Now is the time to repair and rejuvenate sun-damaged skin and to also make adjustments to your daily routine as the season changes.
This is the time of year that your skin needs extra love and care to combat damage and dryness caused by the seasonal change.
So, what is the best approach to healthy, glowing, rejuvenated skin this fall? Here are some of our top recommendations.
Start by treating your skin from the inside out by adding a few key supplements to your morning routine.
Probiotics: Research has shown a direct link between a healthy gut and clear, radiant skin. Because probiotics have been proven to help maintain good digestive health, it makes sense that adding this supplement to your routine will result in clearer, healthier and younger appearing skin.
Vitamin C: Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that can help fight and neutralize free radicals thus assisting in slowing down the aging process. Vitamin C aids in your skin’s regeneration process, helps to repair damaged skin cells, and can help boost immunity.
Collagen: A recent double-blind placebo study found that women who took the oral peptide form of collagen regularly for eight weeks saw a 20% reduction in wrinkles. The women in this study found after consuming a collagen supplement their skin had higher elasticity and moisture levels.
The next step is to evaluate and adjust your daily at-home skin care routine. Be sure to add moisturizing products to your morning and evening routine to combat the drier, cooler air temperatures. Also, add a skin brightener/lightener to help reverse any hyperpigmentation that occurred from all of the summer sun exposure.
Two of our favorite products to add into your fall routine are:
Revision Skincare C+ Correcting Complex 30%: Reveal a brilliant glow, more even skin tone and a more youthful appearance. Infused with patent-pending MelaPATH technology that illuminates, refines and rejuvenates. Defending and correcting the skin-damaging effects of free radicals generated by dust and high-energy visible light.
SkinBetter Science Trio Rebalancing Moisture Treatment: Patented formulation that uniquely brings balance back to dry, aged skin. Triple-action formula that helps to hydrate a compromised barrier and bring moisture back to the skin.
Receiving in-office medical treatments will provide the most immediate and significant changes. In-office clinical treatments are always the “biggest bang for the buck” for those that desire the most dramatic and noticeable results. Clinical treatments of choice would include laser resurfacing, photo facials, injectable treatments, microneedling and chemical peels.
Before deciding what treatments to undergo, is always best to schedule a skin care consultation and meet face to face with a medical provider so the provider is able to conduct a full evaluation your skin thus enabling them to develop a custom and specialized treatment protocol that meets you individual goals.
Don’t delay, now is the time to take the steps to fall back in love with your skin.
