Autumn has arrived, and as we prepare for temperatures to drop and for days to shorten, we must prepare our skin as well. The change from being warm indoors to stepping outside to cold weather can really affect your skin. During autumn and winter the air has less humidity which can upset the skin’s balance, and central heating can strip skin of more moisture. But preparing your skin for the upcoming season doesn’t have to be a difficult task and, with a little bit of future planning, you’ll be ready for autumn in no time!
Let’s take a look at our autumn facial tips to ensure your skin is healthy and glowing for the new season.
Remove dead cells
Falling leaves should signal to everyone that it is time to rejuvenate your skin and repair all the damage summer has caused. Darkened skin cells are actually dead cells that need to be sloughed off to make way for the fresh, new skin beneath. The IS Clinical Fire & Ice Resurfacing Facial is a rejuvenating treatment that bridges the gap between a mild facial and an invasive peel, with no downtime. This treatment, known as the ‘Hollywood Red Carpet Facial’ removes the top loose layers of the epidermis, whilst the superficial trauma caused to the skin stimulates the skin’s healing mechanism.

Lock moisture in
When autumn strikes, so too does cooler air and cooler air is drying to skin. It is important to moisturize skin daily as it is vital to help maintain a healthy skin barrier and to prevent dry skin. If your skin is feeling particularly dry, dull and lackluster, you may need a professional facial to help bring back a radiant complexion. One of our favorite facials to boost hydration levels is Environ Essential Treatment. It is an intensive treatment that deeply hydrates while plumping and firming the skin. Based on hyaluronic acid, which holds 1000 times its own weight in water, it helps to reduce fine lines caused by dehydration and increase the plumpness of the dermis, resulting in moisturized, glowing skin.

The high UVA and UVB rays’ exposure to our skin over the summer months can contribute to increased pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, and other visible signs of ageing. As time goes by, collagen levels in your skin begin to deplete, causing fine lines to appear on the surface of your skin. Although this is one of the biggest signs of ageing, it can also happen prematurely from too much exposure to the sun during the summer months. Facials are great at strengthening your face, as well as stimulating collagen production. Micro-needling is our bestselling anti-aging, rejuvenating treatment. It takes advantage of the skin’s self-repair process by creating thousands of precise micro-injuries to the dermis. This triggers new collagen synthesis without causing new scar tissue formation. This minimally invasive treatment stimulates your skin’s natural ability to repair itself and maximizes collagen and elastin production.
