5 Tips to Upgrade your Skincare Routine from Summer to Autumn
Summer is quickly drawing to a close, but that doesn’t mean your vibrant skin has to hibernate! Just as you switch out your wardrobe as the cooler weather rolls around, the change of season calls for an update to your skincare routine too. Timeless shares our tips to keep your skin in balance through the changes to remain youthful and beautiful for years to come!
1. Upgrade to a heavier hydration plan
Cooler temperatures means your skin produces less oils and can be easily irritated by environmental factors like wind and rain. Defeat dryness, itching, and flaking with a thicker and creamier formula. Timeless recommends SkinMedica HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator® followed by either SkinMedica Dermal Repair Cream or Obagi Hydrate Luxe Moisture-Rich Cream to hydrate and replenish moisture to the skin.
2. Clear up summer sun damage
Reverse the sun damage of summer by combining Intense Pulsed Light treatment (IPL) with Laser Genesis. This powerful treatment pairing offers many benefits including correcting dark spots and hyperpigmentation to restore skin’s overall texture and tone.We offer special package options for these treatments as a series is recommended for optimal results.
3. Get Your Scrub On
If it’s been three months, it’s time to change your Clarisonic brush head! The Luxe Cashmere attachment has super-soft bristles to provide a gentle massage while also increasing the skin’s natural hydration levels.
Exfoliating helps to minimize the appearance of dark spots, smooth out the skin’s complexion and tone, and remove dead skin cells. Try a gentler cleanser such as SkinMedica Sensitive Skin Cleanser, since your skin is often more sensitive in the colder months.
4. Continue to apply sunscreen
Exposure to sun is the number one cause of aging. UV rays can still be damaging in the winter – so it’s important to use daily protection – all year round! Timeless offers the first and only rejuvenating Superscreen. SkinMedica Total Defense + Repair Broad Spectrum Sunscreen goes beyond UVA and UVB protection by defending skin against the sun’s harmful infrared rays. The unique antioxidant formula also helps with wrinkles and discoloration while supporting the skin’s ability to restore its elasticity and firmness.
5. Protect Dry Lips
The lips are often forgotten when it comes to skin care, but without proper care this sensitive area can become blistered, rough, and cracked. Timeless recommends HA5 Smooth & Plump Lip System or Emu Oil Lip Balm to keep your lips moisturized throughout the day.
The above tips may vary based on your age, climate zone and skin type. When in doubt, always consult your Timeless medical provider – we can help select the treatments and medical-grade products that are best for you!
