Summer Skin Detox Tips to Freshen Up for Fall

Woman with fall leaf.

Labor Day is around the corner, which means it is time to swap out your seasonal wardrobe, start dreaming about cooler temps, and packing away those swimsuits. It also means you’ll start seeing the effects of all that sun, chlorine, and more than likely, too many mimosas. Give your skin the detox it deserves and prepare for a fall of cool, dry air and autumn activities.

Start with Some Deep Pore Cleansing

Between all the sweating, oil production, and dirt accumulation mixed with makeup, your complexion might be suffering. If you have clogged pores or break outs from the heat, detox your skin with a purifying deep cleaning face mask or a gentle exfoliating scrub. These are great ways to minimize the look of pores and draw out impurities leaving behind soft, clean skin.

Treat Yourself to a Chemical Peel

If you really want to address dark spots, acne, and sun damage, a chemical peel might just do the trick. The Derm Group offers a wide array of chemical peels ranging from a refreshing lunch time peel to medium or deep peels. Depending on your skin, a number of treatments might be needed to address individual concerns.

 Get Rid of Acne for Good

For those teens who are getting ready to return to school, our board-certified dermatologists, treat acne patients daily with an arsenal of prescribed topical or oral medications. Our Licensed Aestheticians are experts at pairing medical grade skincare with prescribed acne medications, forming a well-rounded home regimen, as well as walking our patients through this process to ensure understanding. We want to help our patients look and feel their best when they head back to school.

Protect and Moisturize Your Skin

Just because the sky is looking a little gray does not mean the sun stops damaging your skin. Be sure to apply an oil-free sunscreen—even if it’s in your daily moisturizer—to maximize your protection. Take it up a notch when you pair it with an antioxidant-rich serum to reduce visible signs of aging.
