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
If you've changed up your skincare regimen and your complexion isn't reacting well, perhaps an advanced medical and cosmetic dermatological treatment. A visit with Maryland Plastic Surgery can help you mitigate serious issues with your skin that can't be solved with a new skincare routine.

Everything about this experience exceeded my expectations and none of my fears about having cosmetic surgery came true. The results were completely natural looking–as though the clock had been set back many years and while the before and after results were substantial, the overall effect was just right and nobody even asked whether I had any “work” performed on my face. I am most happy about the fact that the double chin, which I’d had for my entire life, is now gone and I have an actual jaw line.

I had been interested in getting a breast augmentation for over 15 years but was worried about having elective surgery as well as the safety of implants. After I discovered a co-worker had implants and told me about Dr. Summers I took it as a sign. Dr. Summers and his staff were very patient and informative with all the questions and concerns I had. Never once did I feel they dismissed my concerns nor made me feel I was wasting their time with my nervousness. I determined that if I was going to undergo surgery that I would attempt laser liposuction on some stubborn areas on my abs, hips, and thighs. Dr. Summers was very professional and competent but what stood out for me was that he talked to me about diet and lifestyle changes that would be necessary to get the complete results I wanted. I was extremely pleased with the results of my augmentation and feel like the lipo gave me the kick start I needed to get me on the path to making those lifestyle changes. I can easily say I’m now in the best shape of my life! Thank you Dr. Summers!

Dr. Summers was highly recommended to me from two friends who had been his patients in the past. I was not disappointed. He made me feel comfortable from the moment I met him. His calm demeanor and knowledge set my mind at ease that he would give me the best results possible. Many women get plastic surgery for various reasons and when I explained my reasons to him, he was non-judgemental and caring. He was very helpful in educating me on the silicone implants that I chose and I trusted that he was going to be the best doctor to do my breast augmentation. My overall experience of plastic surgery was excellent. I have more self-confidence and a better body image thanks to him!

I went to multiple Plastic Surgeons wanting lower eyelid surgery to get rid of intense under eye wrinkles when I smiled. They all said that I didn’t have enough skin for lower eyelid surgery, and they refused to do it on the grounds they all felt it would permanently pull my lower lid down and not help the wrinkles anyway. And that I had to “live with it.” Prior laser treatments did not diminish the wrinkles either, so I was out of options until I found Dr. Adam Summers. He disagreed with the other Plastic Surgeons, and guaranteed it would not permanently pull my lower lid down. He did the upper lids, lower lids, and an upper cheek lift for a great price and I am thrilled with the results. My eyelid is not pulled down and the wrinkles are gone! Just as importantly, the reason I would also recommend Dr. Summers as unlike Plastic Surgeons I’ve had surgery with in the past, he cared just as much for me and my endless questions or concerns postop as he did before I paid him. He even told me preop that if any wrinkles remained he would stand by his work and get rid of them for free. That is the mark of a truly great Plastic Surgeon. I’d also like to acknowledge Melinda, office manager, the nurses and all the staff for going over and above with great customer service. I’m a fan for life!

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.

Dr. Summers was recommended to me by a friend who had breast implants and a tummy tuck at the Maryland Plastic Surgery Center. She was delighted with the results. When she learned that I was interested in some facial work, she immediately told me that the best cosmetic surgeon in town is Adam Summers. She showed me the work he had done for her and I couldn’t believe how incredible she looked. I couldn’t even find her scars. I asked around some more and it turns out that Dr. Summers has quite a reputation for facelift surgery and is one of the few real experts for injections around the face. After my visit with him today, I had to let everyone know that if you are interested in any type of cosmetic procedure or surgery, you MUST visit Dr. Summers at his beautiful medical spa. He offers a complimentary appointment and was right on time. He spent an entire hour with me reviewing my concerns. Although it was late in the day and I know he had been working all day, he was kind and funny (and cute!) and made me feel very comfortable. I had some injections done and I look great. No, I look better than great! Truly, I’m thrilled with the results. This was the first time I had ever had anything done, and Dr. Summers made sure I was comfortable and that it was painless and that I looked just the way I wanted!
