6 Fall Skincare Tips: Fa La La La to Healthy Skin!

By: Dr. Kate Holcomb and Dr. Mara Haseltine, Pure Dermatology

As Thanksgiving approaches, we often think about the things we are most grateful for. This usually includes good health. At Pure Dermatology, it is our duty to remind you that healthy skin is a critical component of overall good health! Your skin is your largest organ and it needs to be protected and properly cared for all year around.

The long, hot days of summer have come to an end and we’re still adjusting to another time change. It’s the perfect time to evaluate your overall skin health and adjust your skincare routine by finding ways to restore any damage you may have done during those extended hours of summer sunlight.

Fall Skincare Tips: How To Keep A Healthy Skin in Cold Season

Changes in weather can affect our skin in many different ways, so it’s imperative to make sure your skincare includes using the proper products for the current season and your climate. Cooler temperatures inevitably result in drier skin and and sometimes even break outs, on top of dealing with the after effects of sunburn or skin discoloration from over-exposure to sunlight during summer.

It is essential to protect your skin daily with the right sunscreens, to prevent today’s exposure from becoming tomorrow’s discolorations, fine lines, uneven tones, even skin cancers. But it’s also very important to repair the damage done in the days and years before.

We’re arming you with a few fall skincare tips to help you autumn-proof your skin.

Skincare Tip 1: Update Your Moisturizer and Hydrator

It’s time to put your lightweight moisturizer away and replace it with a rich, creamy age-defying moisturizer and a powerful hydrator!  Fall and winter seasons call for different products that get the job done but won’t irritate your skin by clogging your pores. 

SkinMedica HA5® Rejuvenating Hydrator provides immediate smoothing in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and supports the skin’s natural ability to retain moisture resulting in radiant, rejuvenated tone and texture. 96% of patients in a clinical usage study agreed that immediately after applying HA5® it made their skin feel smooth and soft! 

This amazing formula is appropriate for all skin types and:

  • Delivers both immediate and long-term benefits.
  • Instantly smoothes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Provides immediate hydration.
  • Improves the appearance of skin texture and roughness.

HA5® addresses the loss of HA in the skin. Its combination of 5 HAs works immediately to smooth the skin and provide hydration throughout the day on the outermost layers of the skin. In addition, HA5® supports the skin’s own ability to retain hydration with VITISENSCE®, a SkinMedica® exclusive technology that harnesses a potent blend of antioxidants and peptides.

Skincare Tip 2: Invest in a Nourishing Night Serum

As winter approaches it’s even more essential to add a nourishing night serum to your skincare routine before bedtime. The perfect one-two punch for your daytime defense and night time repair is The LUMIVIVE® System. This combo is designed to provide a bio-barrier against blue light and other environmental aggressors from damaging skin during the day and recharges the skin’s essential repair process at night. These products are clinically proven to work together to improve the appearance of skin tone evenness including redness and helps restore stressed skin resulting in a more luminous complexion. This is a great starter skincare routine in your 30’s and 40’s.

LUMIVIVE® NIGHT Revitalize Repair Complex is a clinically proven serum that recharges the skin’s ability to repair itself overnight and helps restore a glowing, youthful appearance. A proprietary blend of ingredients invigorates and detoxifies stressed skin making it feel fortified and appear more radiant each morning. Visibly improves skin tone, texture and quality for a smooth and luminous complexion.

At night, regenerative mechanisms are activated to restore the damage sustained during the day. Aging and overexposure to daily environmental threats decrease these repair mechanisms in the same way as lack of sleep. The LUMIVIVE® NIGHT Revitalize Repair Complex recharges this essential nighttime skin recovery process.

Skincare Tip 3: Get Plenty of Rest

Once you nail down your day and night skincare routine it’s important that you supplement it with proper rest! Most people don’t associate sleep with their skincare regimen, but it’s actually a really important part of maintaining healthy skin. While this goes for all seasons, of course, it’s especially important in the fall and winter months when the air is typically harsher. A few benefits of beauty rest include a brighter complexion, less puffiness around the eyes, and a more positive reaction of your skin to certain products. So take your bedtime seriously!

You can also heal your skin when you rest! NEOVA’s DNA Repair line contains enzymes that repair DNA damage while you sleep.

Skincare Tip 4: Hydrate Inside!

After resting well, the next best thing you can do is to stay hydrated! It seems very simple, but we often forget to drink enough water! Without the summer heat to remind us of how thirsty we are, it’s easy to become complacent and fall short on our daily intake of water. Remember to keep your favorite water bottle nearby and take a few sips throughout the day. Drinking enough water won’t just give you healthy skin, it also improves many aspects of your health including sleep quality, brain performance, and digestive harmony. 

Another tip to help with hydration is to increase the level of humidity in your home. A humidifier can make a huge difference by adding moisture directly to the air, which can work wonders for your skin and help you to stay hydrated. Just don’t forget to clean it according to the package directions.

Skincare Tip 5: Facials and Chemical Peels

Fall is the perfect time to visit Pure Dermatology for a facial or a chemical peel! 

Our Diamond Glow Treatment is much more than a facial – it gently removes dry damaged skin cells using a precise diamond microdermabrasion tip. It then extracts the skin’s surface and pores using a  customizable high-powered suction, then our medical esthetician chooses medical grade serums unique to your skin needs. Sounds pretty amazing, right? It truly is! Your skin will feel clean with unclogged pores, smoother, brighter, hydrated and healthier after your Diamond Glow treatment and it will continue to show improvement for days after! It is also safe in all skin types and most skin conditions, including acne, rosacea, and melasma. Repeat treatments also help your home skincare regimen work better.

Diamond Glow Treatment - Pure Dermatology

The targeted SkinMedica serums infused during Diamond Glow address the following skin concerns:

  • Acne
  • Melasma
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Photodamage
  • Dull skin
  • Fine lines
  • Dry skin
  • Sun damage

Skincare Tip 6: Never Skip the Sunscreen!

Last but not least on our list of Fall skincare tips is to continue using daily sunscreen. With the brisk air of autumn and cold temps in winter months, many people believe it’s ok to reduce or stop using sunscreen entirely. But the exact opposite is true. Even though the sun isn’t as direct, it is still blasting us with harmful UV rays, which can cause some pretty serious damage to your skin. 

It is extremely important to continue protecting your skin from additional sun damage by using a reliable sunblock anytime you plan to be outdoors in the sun. We recommend ISDN’s Eryfotona Actinica Daily mineral SPF 50+ sunscreen, winner of InStyle Magazine’s Best Beauty Buys!
