When the seasons change, often so does our skin. Differences in weather can wreak havoc on your skin and may even occasionally alter the beauty products and treatments you require. It’s important to take these factors into consideration when evaluating your beauty regimen.
The ideal anti-aging routine includes a peel or microdermabrasion once a month, then a dermal filler and/or Botox every three or four months. This regimen is recommended throughout the year, regardless of season or weather.
But what about when your skin needs a little extra care? Your skin needs different attention during the spring and summer than it does during the fall and winter. Below are the two major reasons.
UV exposure and extremely high temperatures often leads to an increase in the sensitivity of your skin. For this reason, certain cosmetic procedures — especially laser treatments — should always be avoided during the hotter months of the year.
Additionally, any wounds or areas that have recently been treated are more susceptible to UV damage. If these areas aren’t properly protected, pigmentation problems, and even scarring, could occur. These are long-term issues that would need special attention.
Aside from the need to protect your skin from excessive heat and sun exposure, your skin becomes dryer during the colder months, making it more prone to aging-related problems. Having specific therapeutic treatments done during this time of year helps keep skin moisturized and younger-looking.
With the weather cooling off and the leaves falling, now is the perfect time to pay extra attention to your skin. There are many beauty treatment options to consider during the fall and winter, but here’s a list of ideas to get you started.
