Now, you’re regrettably reading this article with two sweaters wrapped around you. You may even already have your favorite fuzzy socks on! Since summer is now OFFICIALLY over, it’s time to start a new healing process for the damage left over from those harmful UV rays. Here are some ideas for cleansing and repairing your skin!
In the fall season, cosmetic physician Dr. Stanley Kovak says chemical peels and microdermabrasion are an ideal course of action right after summer. You’ll need at least a few days up to a week to recover at home; you want to make sure you block out healing time. It’s also ideal not to have the harsh summer sun damaging that vulnerable new layer of skin (Tigar par. 2)!
Skin feeling rough or cracked? Lactic acid moisturizers are the answer you’ve been looking for. “The lactic acid exfoliates to reveal fresher and softer skin beneath it” (Tigar par. 7) Using a chemical exfoliant is a great way brighten your complexion by getting rid of those dead, darkened skin cells that hang around and cause your skin to look blotchy and uneven.
