Even though the cooler weather tempts us to get a little lazy and relax on the couch, we’ve got too much to do. Holiday parties are getting planned, decorations are being put up, and gifts are being bought. Even more, our skin is transitioning to cooler, drier air. That means that some of us may be experiencing flakiness or dry skin that we just don’t want. Even worse, we’re noticing little sun spots from the summer. No thank you. It’s fall and we’re ready to repair our skin from all that summer damage! Keep reading for some of the best ways to treat your skin this fall to keep it beautiful for all of those parties coming up.


As we age, our skin reacts worse to the drier air, too. You may notice redness, flakiness, and feelings of dryness on your skin. Exfoliating once or twice a week can help remove dead skin cells that are flaking off, and encourage better oil production regulation. When your skin’s oil production is stable, your skin is better at staying neither too dry nor too oily. Exfoliating also helps by giving your moisturizer a boost.


Yes, moisturizing is key all year round, but it’s very important in the fall. While exfoliating can help remove dead skin cells and give your moisturizer a better chance of hydrating the skin that needs it, you may still find yourself on the dry side.

Switching up your routine for fall isn’t uncommon. Many of us need a thicker moisturizer in the winter to keep our skin happy.


Fall is a great time to incorporate rejuvenating treatments such as chemical peels. Our skin has recovered from excess sun, and we may see new sun spots that we don’t want to! Chemical peels help remove fine lines, treat acne, and scrub away age spots. There are many different types of chemical peels we offer, too: alphahydroxy acids (AHAs), betahydroxy acids, trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and phenol. We can tailor your treatment to your specific needs.
