It’s the perfect time of year to help repair skin that may have been damaged by the sun over the summer. You can start by exfoliating those dead skin cells! It’s challenging for your natural radiance to come through without doing the work to encourage skin cell turnover. This fall, find out how to even the look of skin tone with professional peels, products to use at home, and by tending to the skin on your body with glycolic body wash. Your healthy skin lifestyle awaits.
Exfoliate at Home with Glycolic Body Wash
Glycolic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) proven to help fade the look of dark spots, remove dead skin cells, and even out the look of skin tone. Glycolic face peels may instantly spring to mind. But did you know you can get glycolic acid body wraps at the spa? It’s a body rejuvenation treatment that exfoliates and helps firm and tone the look of your skin.
Carry the results home with you by using a cosmeceutical-grade glycolic body wash followed by glycolic body lotion. The combination of products will help exfoliate your skin, leaving it smoother and touchably soft. Look for a glycolic body wash made with proven actives, including glycolic acid and skin-softening shea butter.
Try a Mandelic Acid Peel
Peels are popular for a reason:They help slough off dead skin cells and unclog pores. There are many different types of peels you can try. On your next visit to your favorite med spa, consider a mandelic acid peel—great for all skin types. Your gentle peel formula should be designed to brighten the look of skin damaged by sun, age, hyperpigmentation, or acne. Mandelic acid helps even the appearance of skin tone and texture. How? This almond-derived ingredient is another gentle AHA exfoliator. Mandelic acid loosens the connections between surface skin cells and encourages the cells to shed naturally.
After a mandelic acid peel, your skin should look and feel softer, smoother, and more radiant. The goal is to create a better surface for your topical products to absorb more effectively without irritating your skin. Fall is peel season, so September is an excellent time to treat yourself to a mandelic acid peel.
Your esthetician may also recommend applying a topical mandelic acid and licorice root extract serum at home. A cosmeceutical-grade product helps maximize your professional results and maintain the look of even skin tone. Some of the best spas in the country have a full line of cosmeceutical skincare products you can use at home.
Dermaplaning for Sun Damage
Dermaplaning is a safe and convenient method of exfoliating. In this form of manual exfoliation, an esthetician uses a professional dermaplaning tool kit that includes a medical-grade blade to skim dead skin cells and peach fuzz from the surface of your skin. It’s relaxing, effective, and helps brighten the look of your complexion and even the appearance of skin tone instantly. It’s another treatment you might want to try this fall to help address the look of sun damage and rejuvenate your skin’s appearance.
There are many excellent ways to take great care of your skin this fall. If evening out the look of your skin tone is one of them, all of the above tips may be beneficial for you.
