The arrival of the fall season signifies the perfect time for regeneration. Hours spent under the summer sun can cause the skin to become dry, or discolored, or cause premature signs of aging like wrinkles to surface. Here, Milwaukee plastic surgeon Dr. Paul Loewenstein shares a few tips to rejuvenate and refresh your skin this fall.
Investing in quality skin care products can remedy the drying, cracking effects of sun damage on the face and body. They can also help protect against further damage caused by the cooler and drier weather that comes with the autumn season. Oil-based moisturizing serums can hydrate your skin and stimulate the production of elastin and collagen in the skin. Dr. Loewenstein offers his patients a range of skin care products, including those that focus on cleansing, toning and moisturizing the skin.
Protect Your Hands and Lips
Often overlooked, the lips and hands can experience a lot of damage during the fall and winter months. Always carry lip balm and a hand moisturizer in your purse to prepare for windy and dry weather. If you used lip gloss this summer, swap it for lip balm for added protection and moisture.
Wash Your Face at Night
If you’re like most women, you have slept with your makeup on from time to time. Unfortunately, this can harm your skin in several ways. Toxins and bacteria build up on your skin throughout the day, clogging your pores. Wearing blush or foundation overnight can also clog the pores and irritate the skin. Gently wash your face with warm water to keep your skin clear and beautiful. Wash off eye makeup by dampening cotton balls with eye makeup remover and placing them over your eyelids for 10 to 15 seconds.
Remove Dead Skin
A skin resurfacing treatment with Dr. Loewenstein can help reduce the appearance of age spots, wrinkles, fine lines and expression lines caused by sun damage. Chemical peel is a noninvasive treatment that removes the damaged outer skin layer to reveal a healthier, more radiant complexion. Laser skin resurfacing uses pulsating breams of focused light to vaporize old, damaged skin cells and make way for a new, healthier layer of skin. Dr. Loewenstein will customize your skin resurfacing treatment based on your needs and goals.
