The sun has set on summer and we are now enjoying all that autumn has to offer. Unfortunately, as the seasons change, so can your skin and the care it needs.
Whether it’s repairing dry skin or combating summer pigmentation, we have some tips to restore your skin and keep it hydrated for the months ahead.
The omnipresent rays of the sun are just as damaging in winter as they are in summer. Protect your skin from the elements by wearing a broad spectrum SPF 50+ sunscreen when you are outside.
Even if you work inside all day, you still need additional sunscreen to block UVA & UVB rays which easily induce hyperpigmentation and age spots.
We recommend Balense UV Defiance SPF 50+, a protective sun lotion that leaves the skin feeling silky without residue. It’s also paraben-free and compatible with makeup.
Swap it up
Just as you wouldn’t wear a singlet and sandals outside in the cold weather, you don’t want to use your light-weight summer skincare products as the temperature drops. Try switching your products to a far more hydrating, rich formula that provides nourishing daily skincare to the face, hands and neck.
A daily coat of moisturiser can take your skin from looking dull to a smooth and supple appearance. We recommend Balense Dry Skin Moisturiser. It’s laden with Hyaluronic acid for moisture retention and epidermal conditioning to help change the appearance of dry, tight and itchy skin into smooth, supple and silky feeling skin.
Speed up your skin renewal
During the cooler months, our normal skin shedding process tends to slow down, which means our skin can become drier, rougher and develop a dull looking appearance. If you don’t exfoliate on a regular basis you can accumulate dry flaky skin, which can lead to clogged pores.
To speed up your skin cell renewal and rejuvenate the skin on your face, neck and décolletage, we recommend you try a microdermabrasion. A good microdermabrasion treatment that will help to massage the skin, remove dead skin cells, hydrate and stimulate collagen renewal.
Peel away the summer
To reverse the signs of summer try, an advanced Medi-aesthetic Power Peel. These incredible treatments are designed to transform your skin, by removing the dull, unwanted layers and encouraging new, fresh skin to reveal itself. Using advanced cosmeceuticals, each peel targets specific concerns and provides a clean slate for your skin.
It is important to ensure your skin has undergone the appropriate skin care preparation prior to experiencing an advanced skin peel. This ensures your skin enjoys the maximum benefits and results of the treatment.
The most important thing to remember is when the seasons change, so can your skin type. Your skin may be oily in summer, however as we move into autumn you might notice your skin turns more ‘normal’; or those with normal skin might notice their skin is dry.
Keep an eye on this, you may need to change your active skin care routine accordingly. If you are unsure as to whether your skin needs a new regime, request your complimentary Observ Skin Analysis with one of our dermal technicians to see what skin care type you fall into.
In addition to modifying your skin care rituals, it is crucial to take care of yourself from within. Always drink plenty of water and eat a well-balanced diet. The air can suck moisture right from your skin in autumn and winter. Stay hydrated to keep your skin beautiful, beautiful!
