Labor Day weekend is bittersweet, as it marks the end of summer and the beginning of the fall season. Before you know it, you’ll have to start getting ready for the busy holiday season! So for now, we should all be taking advantage of the month or two we have to get ready to look fabulous just in time for the holidays. The first step is to get rid of the summer damage that you may have inflicted on your skin!

A great way to refresh and rejuvenate your skin is with a series of chemical peels. After a chemical peel, it is highly recommended for you to stay out of the sun and to always wear sunscreen. Since summer activities have started to slowly diminish, now is a great time to start your peel package! Chemical peels are great because they target and are personalized to your individual skin needs (at least they are in our office!). They treat everything from acne, rosacea, fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and much more! Dark spots and blotches (hyperpigmentation) along with fine lines and wrinkles from sun damage causes you to look much older than you are, so prevent and rectify the sun damage as early as possible.

Another way to keep your face looking fresh every day is to incorporate the use of an exfoliating scrub into your skincare routine. As you get older, your skin does not shed or exfoliate the top layer of your skin as frequently as it once did. That is why, one of my favorite products in the Vivité Exfoliating Scrub. It is a medical grade skin care product, and it contains glycolic acid (“which enhances the skin’s nautral production of hyaluronic acid, collagen, and epidermal growth factors”). It also contains a ton of antioxidants to help “neutralize destructive free radicals” that attack your skin! Remember, you want to use a scrub only a few times each week to keep it looking fresh. That is why we also recommend the Vivité Daily Facial Cleanser in conjunction with the Exfoliating Scrub!

Even if you have been getting peels and exfoliating, you want to keep up your fresh face look by incorporating the correct skin care products into your routine (stay tuned next week for more info!). Another great anti-aging product to brighten your skin and even your skin tone is the best-selling Vivité Vibrance Therapy. It has a unique natural formulation which “helps to combat uneven skin tone while helping to protect, calm, hydrate, and rejuvenate skin.”

So start your fall skin therapy today! Incorporate these basics into your skin care regime, and you will definitely notice a difference in the quality of your skin by the time the holidays come around!
