The tanning, beach-going, swimming, and sweating of summer is now in the past as we move toward the cool and calmer time of year. As we approach fall, it’s time to bring forth fresh new skin and repair it after the heat of summer with an awesome facial. Here’s what facials can do for your skin after a hot summer.
Summer may have been wild and fun, but it’s likely that it was also brutal for your skin. For months, the sun has been beating down on your skin causing you to sweat more than you do during any other time of the year. This constant sweating can cause your skin to produce more oil and trap in dirt. Even if you wash your face every day and night, the daily production of dirt and sweat is guaranteed to clog your pores. Couple that with the daily application of sunscreen and your poor pores are packed with plenty of clogging agents. Getting an “after summer” facial can help clear out all of that gunk allowing your pores to breathe in the new cool, crisp air.
With all that dirt, oil, sweat, and sunscreen, you’ve probably guessed that dead skin also gets trapped in the skin. With normal cell turn over, the dead skin cells come to the surface of our skin and will flake away and fall off. But summer skin care and sun protection can get in the way of that process. Instead of the flakes drifting away, it gets stuck to your face and buried underneath the dirt and sweat, and anything else present on your face and in your pores. A facial can help scrape away those stuck on dead cells and make room for the production of new and healthy cells.
If you’re like the majority of us, your skin had its ups and downs throughout the summer. Maybe you experienced zits, blackheads, whiteheads, cysts, or other awful skin conditions. If this is the case, there’s bound to be residual markings, scarring, and blemishes.
You don’t have to step into autumn with the same old summer scars. With a proper facial, your skin can be repaired and rejuvenated. It can minimize the appearance of acne scars and blemishes as well as reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
When taking care of your skin, nothing is more important than hydration and moisturization. With summer ending, your skin is going to be exposed to a whole different environment and weather. This can significantly dry out the skin, paving the way for wrinkles, acne, and more. Getting a facial can clear your face enough to allow your skin to receive proper hydration and moisture from products like light facial creams and moisturizers.
Autumn may not be as harsh as winter, but the cool air can really take its toll on skin that is unprepared. A facial can prepare your skin for the change in weather by giving your face a good cleaning and getting it ready to absorb a healthy amount of moisture and skin care solutions. This can even help prep your skin for winter.
