Tips for changing your skincare regimen for fall

Tips for changing your skincare regimen for fall

Fall has officially arrived. Gone are the days of sunbathing and swimming – now's the time to bust out the sweaters, grab a pumpkin spice latte and get cozy around the bonfire with friends and family. But while your wardrobe and daily agenda will inevitably change, now's a good time to start considering a revamp of your skincare routine.

"As the weather starts to cool down, you may notice that your skin produces less oil," NYC cosmetic dermatologist Sejal Shah, MD told Business Insider. "Depending on your skin type, this may be a good or bad thing."

To keep up with these changes in your complexion, consider the following tips for changing your skincare regimen for fall: 

1. Switch to cleaning oil
Your traditional cleanser can make your skin more prone to drying out as fall rolls in, according to skincare expert Julie Kim. Using a cleansing oil is the easiest way to save your complexion.

"This will help when you start to do the layering of hydration, and as you go into winter, make the change to a heavier moisturizer in addition to a cleansing oil would be a good step," she told InStyle magazine.

2. Take shorter showers
While a nice long, hot shower after a rough day at work can be relaxing, it's not so soothing for your skin as the temperatures begin to drop. This is the quickest way to dry out your skin, so stick to quicker showers – about 10 minutes long – with warm water. Also, never wipe your skin dry, rather, blot away the wetness with a soft towel and don't forget to moisturize your entire body.

"After bathing, blot, don't rub, your skin dry and immediately apply a thick cream or ointment while your skin is still slightly damp," Shah told Business Insider.

3. Moisturize your hands and lips often
Your complexion isn't the only thing that's going to go through some changes this fall. According to Vogue, the dry and cool air that comes with autumn can make your lips and hands more cracked than usual. Apply a rich moisturizing cream to your hands throughout the day to get them back to their smooth and supple state. Your lips can benefit from medicated balm as well. Keep these products in your purse or backpack so you can re-apply throughout the day when necessary.

4. Don't stop wearing sun protection
While the sun won't be shining as brightly as it was during the summertime, that doesn't mean you should stop wearing sun protection. Sure, the sun's harmful UV rays are most concentrated between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. during late spring and early summer, but you still need to prioritize UV ray protection year-round, according to the American Skin Association. Those UV rays can still peak out during overcast days in the fall, and even on the snowy ones during the winter. Start using foundation with at least SPF 15 or apply sunscreen as a part of your morning skincare routine.

5. Visit Maryland Plastic Surgery

I am a 33 year old mother of three and I’ve wanted to have breast augmentation surgery for several years. I went from a large C-cup size to less than a A-cup after have my third child, but two things held me back. One was the fear of things going wrong and the other was financial. One day I sat down to my computer and went online to research cosmetic surgery and I came across Dr. Summers’ website and I am very pleased that I did. Everyone I have come in contact with has been great. I am very pleased with Dr. Summers, he has been nothing short of excellent throughout the entire process. He shows how much he cares for both you and your health from day one. Every member of his staff has been excellent as well. I felt very comfortable and confident throughout the entire process, including the day of surgery. The surgery itself went great, I experienced very little pain, most was managed with Advil instead of the prescription pain killer I was prescribed. I can not say enough how smoothly all of this has gone, I am now three months post-surgery and in a D-cup, and I now have the confidence I always feel I have lacked. For any woman who has gone through what childbirth does to your body or just wants to have breast augmentation surgery, it is more than worth it and I would highly recommend the Maryland Plastic Surgery Center.

I just had my one year follow up appointment with Dr. Summers for my rhinoplasty. I couldn’t be happier with my results! My rhinoplasty was customized to suit my face and does not look “cookie cutter”. My nose looks very natural and suits my face significantly better did than the pre-op version. Dr. Summers is extremely talented and has a great eye for detail. He and his support staff were extremely professional and courteous through the entire process. The surgical facility is state-of-the-art, and extremely well maintained. Overall, I had a fantastic experience with Dr. Summers and would recommend him to anyone seeking rhinoplasty.

I am 5’6″ tall with long blond, curly hair. I work for a real estate company in Maryland as a Lease Administrator. Prior to that, I worked for a Minnesota Senator on Capitol Hill. Even though I work out at the gym frequently, I had a few problem areas, which would not go away. Thanks to Dr. Summers’ cosmetic surgery team at the Maryland Plastic Surgery Center, I’ve had liposuction on my outer thighs, hips and stomach. Now my saddlebags are gone and I was able to buy a pair of hip hugger jeans! I’ll be 45 next month and will almost wear a size 6. I’m planning to return to have my inner thighs done very soon.

Dr. Summers and the MD Plastic Surgery staff were incredible. Dr. Summers made me feel very comfortable about my procedure, as I was very nervous about having it done. The staff was warm and welcoming, caring, and I could tell they were genuinely interested in my well-being, satisfaction with the results, and recovery. As for the procedure, Dr. Summers did an excellent job, my recovery and results, quite amazing! I recovered fast and now it’s been 7 months and I am SUPER happy with my neck! This procedure has allowed me to feel so much better about myself and given me a new sense of confidence. Thank you MD Plastic Surgery!

I am a 35 year old mother of two children. Currently, I am working for a life insurance company via telecommunication. I would like to thank Dr. Adam Summers for having the opportunity to have this procedure. My breast augmentation and breast lift procedure turned out absolutely beautiful. I cannot describe how much better I feel about myself and the self-esteem I have gotten since my surgery. The results are simply amazing.

This was my second major procedure with Dr Summers, having had a major tummy tuck in 2005 with which I was thrilled! The breast lift and aug was as pain-free as possible, I was prepped accordingly with information, risks and self-care…and when a fear arose afterwords that I wasnt healing in the manner I THOUGHT I should be, Dr Summers put my mind at ease immediately, as did the entire staff, by giving me the facts I needed to proceed with confidence.

I am 30 years old and had a breast augmentation with Dr. Summers at the Maryland Plastic Surgery Center. The pre-operative details, surgical procedure and post-operative care are excellent. I couldn’t have asked for better treatment from even the President’s staff! My experience is one that I’ll remember, never regret and wish I had done it sooner.
