Skin Care Tips for Fall

The crisp air, the falling leaves: fall is right around the corner! It may be hard to remember, but just because more of your skin may be covered up during the colder months doesn’t mean you can take a break with protecting it.

So before we officially need to pack away those summer clothes, here are some tips on how to keep your skin looking great during these next few months:

1.Re-evaluate Your Body Cleanser

Although it may be tempting to keep that fruity concoction that you kept in your shower this summer, consider changing to a cleanser that hydrates your skin. You want to find a body wash or bar that won’t dry your skin out when the cold, dry weather rolls around, like Eminence Organic’s Stone Crop Gel Wash or Glytone’s Exfoliating Body Wash.

2.Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize!

If you want to keep your skin from becoming dry and flaky, daily moisturizing is the way to go. The best time to moisturize is right after you’ve toweled off from your bath or shower, as it allows that moisture to be sealed into your skin. The Georgia Dermatology Center offers several facial moisturizer options, including The Georgia Dermatology Center’s Transformation System, Skin Medica, and Vivite. The Georgia Dermatology Center also offers body lotion choices, including Glytone’s Exfoliating Body Lotion.

3.Protect Your Lips

The skin on your lips is made of very different skin then the rest of your face. You already know from experience how hard it can be to heal extremely chapped lips! So start moisturizing early to have a gorgeous smile leading into winter. Fight the temptation to lick your lips, which will only lead to them becoming more chapped, and apply an oil-based cream or lip balm containing beeswax or petroleum, which lasts longer.

4.Skin Care

May people notice that as the season changes, so does their skin. From oily skin becoming normal skin, to normal skin becoming extremely dry, it can become a frustrating few months! Be aware of how your skin is acting as it starts to become cooler. If you notice a change, contact our medical aestheticians to help you find the best skin care regimen for you during this time of year. Lesley and Michele, The Georgia Dermatology Center’s medical aestheticians, will be more than happy to answer any skin care questions you may have.

5.Most Importantly: Don’t Forget Sunscreen!

Just because it may feel like the sun has gone on a vacation doesn’t mean that you can forget about your daily sunscreen application. You should think of sunscreen as a regular part of your daily skincare routine, year-round.

The Georgia Dermatology Center offers many sunscreen options, including Total Block and Skin Medica, and multiple brands of moisturizer with SPF, including Revision Skincare and The Georgia Dermatology Center’s Transformation System.
