The weather is about to finally cool down, and just like your wardrobe, your skin care routine is due for a change. Thankfully, there are a few ways you can clean up summer damage and enjoy a smooth transition into fall.

Keep hydration a priority

Hopefully, you’ve been taking care to stay hydrated and keep your skin moisturized throughout the summer, and that shouldn’t end when summer does. Whether toners, moisturizers, or masques, select skin care products that offer the right level of hydration for your skin type.

Relieve the effects of sunburned skin

Maybe you didn’t apply enough or maybe you forgot to wear sunscreen at all. While the damage has already been done, you can still minimize the pain and effects of over-exposure. Botanicals and gels designed to soothe and cool your skin will help cut down on redness, irritation, inflammation, and peeling. A customized facial by a licensed technician will not only improve how your skin looks and feels, but will give it a boost repairing damage.

Don’t skip the sunscreen

Just as you should continue hydrating after summer, you should also continue to apply sunscreen. Even on overcast days, the damaging rays of sunlight are still streaming down on you, which can cause premature damage and aging to your skin. Use a facial sunscreen, or moisturizer of at least SPF 15 every day. If you’re spending time outside, remember to reapply every couple hours.

Heal and repair sun damage

Brown spots, rough skin, and wrinkles – nobody wants them, but unfortunately, they can result from the damaging UV light of the sun even if you haven’t been sunburned. The sunlight in Arizona can be notoriously brutal, resulting in inflammation, disruption of healthy cell growth, increased production of collagen-damaging enzymes, and other unwanted damage. This is where a specialized chemical peel targeting sun damage can help give your skin a head start on rejuvenation. This helps improve the texture of your skin, removing the top-most layers and revealing fresh new skin for the new season.
