While you are busy updating your fall wardrobe with chunky sweaters, ankle boots, and darker shades of denim, don’t forget to switch up your beauty regime.
During the hot days of summer, the skin suffers (even if you are a diligent sunscreen wearer). Sunshine and chlorine damage the skin, which causes sun and age spots and more visible lines and wrinkles. Not to mention that the sun depletes collagen production, which is what is responsible for keeping the skin firm and elastic.
Therefore, it is crucial that you look to repair the skin in the fall season. From the best facial treatment available to serums that you need to use and the benefits of micro-needling, read on for four beauty treatments and rituals to prepare you for fall.
1. Dermalogica Facial
If you aren’t fond of getting regular facials, then the fall is the perfect time to start as it will help you to repair summer sun damage. Not to mention that by allowing a professional at the best beauty salon in Doha to reset your skin, the rest of your beauty rituals will be more effective.
The Dermalogica facial is one of the world’s most effective treatments as its process is highly personalized and focused on getting real results for your skin.
At the beginning of your session, a professional esthetician will do a face mapping skin analysis which is set up to analyze the current state of your skin. This will also help your esthetician to know what the focus of the appointment must be.
This facial is ideal for all skin types. So no matter what your skin concerns are, you can benefit from the cleansing, toning, scrub, massage, mask, and moisturization that it provides.
During the summer months, your main skincare focus has to be sun protection, which is why you have (hopefully) been using a vitamin C serum. However, once the weather starts to cool, you want to switch out that serum for one that includes retinol – but do keep wearing sunscreen daily!
This magical ingredient works to stimulate cell turnover and shed the dead layer of skin left over from the summer. Additionally, retinol boosts cell thickness and increases collagen production.
When looking for a retinol serum, make sure to choose one that comes in opaque packaging as the ingredient is so delicate that it can quickly become damaged when exposed to light.
For similar reasons, you want your retinol product to be packaged in an airless container. When using a retinol serum, you also want to regularly use an exfoliator (such as an acid serum) which will help the product to work better. Just don’t use the acid serum in the same evening as your retinol.
3. Hair Treatments
The transition from summer to fall wreaks havoc on your skin and your hair, which is why you need to make sure that you are showing your tresses some TLC throughout the cooler months. Especially if you have spent the summer exposing your hair to sun, chlorine, and seawater, then you are going to want to increase your hair hydration.
Just like with your skin, swap out your warmer weather products for ones that specifically focus on nourishing and hydrating the hair. Products that contain shea butter or jojoba oil are great for restoring health to your mane.
Additionally, one to two times a week, give your hair a deep conditioning treatment that is tailored to your hair concern, whether that is heat protection or sun damage. These types of treatments will boost the health of your hair, bringing you beneficial results immediately and in the months to come.
Similarly, you can make an appointment at your favorite hair salon for a treatment that penetrates the center of your strands to restore the life back into your locks.
If you are suffering from dark eye circles, dullness, fine lines, or acne, then there is a good chance you may have lymphatic fatigue.
To combat these issues, look to give your face and body regular lymphatic drainage treatment. In addition to enhancing your healthy glow and reducing puffiness, this treatment also acts like a skin workout as it strengthens facial muscles, increases oxygen circulation, and releases endorphins.
Some women opt for professional dry-brushing treatments in a spa; however, you can also replicate the treatment at home with a facial and body dry brush. Not only is it far more affordable to do it yourself, but it also enables you to do it on a daily basis.
Take three to five minutes before your shower and start at your feet. Then, brush upward toward the heart, applying firm but small strokes.
