Fall weather is a mixed bag of emotions — the air is dry and cool, getting colder every day. It is also raining from time to time and then leaving the air more dry than before. You are happy to enjoy some cozy nights around the fire but also miss the sunny days of summer. For your skin also, fall signifies a mixed influence. On one side where oily skin and acne-prone skin can finally breathe a sigh of relief in the dry air, the dry skin owners don’t know what to do to keep their skin healthy and supple!
To solve these problems for all skin types, here we have the best facials for fall. Because a facial a month is a great way to combat the ill effects of the season, and breath new life into your dull and drying skin. What’s more, you need to start preparing for the holiday season too, isn’t it?
1. Chemical Peel
Chemical Peel is a facial procedure that is mainly used to accelerate the rate of cell turnover and increase the collagen of the skin. It also scrubs off dead skin cells with the help of the chemical solution. Unlike microdermabrasion (which uses physical means), a chemical peel facial only uses products. This facial is best for you if you want to improve your skin’s complexion, reverse hyperpigmentation or get a clearer surface.
Why Chemical Peel in Fall?
Summer’s sun may have accelerated your pigmentation concerns. And the thing with pigmentation or hyperpigmentation is — the sooner you get it treated, the better the results will be. Hence the moment fall approaches, get yourself booked for a chemical peel. Also, the post-care of this facial prescribes that you stay away from very bright sun, which is best accomplished in fall.
Typical Process of Chemical Peel:
- A consultation with your aesthetician
- Neutralising your skin’s pH
- Chemical peel application
- Soothing skincare products to seal the peel
Time Taken: 45-60 minutes
Microneedling is a facial and cosmetic procedure which is minimally invasive for your skin. A dermaroller or a set of tiny needles is used to puncture your skin to allow skincare products like serums, creams and moisturisers to penetrate completely. This procedure is generally meant for those women who want to reverse signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles, age spots etc. It is also recommended for those who are vying to postpone skin aging.
Why Microneedling in Fall?
Because the sun is milder. Microneedling is not performed on over-sensitive or sun-damaged skin as tiny needle punctures have to be made in your skin.
Typical Process of Chemical Peel:
- Mild exfoliating
- Numbing your skin using a medically graded numbing cream
- Any serums, skin-firming creams, hydrating or brightening products may be applied to the skin
- These are left to soak in completely
Time Taken: 30-60 minutes
Microdermabrasion is a skincare procedure that is extensively used in exfoliating facials. A device with a crystal or diamond-encrusted tip is used to physically exfoliate the upper layers of your skin. As the dull and damaged upper layer is removed, the younger and new lower layer gets a chance to breathe better. This also stimulates better cell turnover, more elastin and collagen production and a reduction of marks and scars. Women who are suffering from acne scars, blemishes, fines and wrinkles may opt for a facial with microdermabrasion to get smoother and better-looking skin. Microdermabrasion is also known to work on evening out the skin tone and texture. The logic behind this is — that the unevenness in the upper layers of the skin is removed completely using the diamond-tipped device.
Why Microdermabrasion in Fall?
Summertime may have led to much sun damage, pigmentation, acne or other blemishes. Hence fall is the best time to get rid of them as they are still fresh and not stubborn. Also, you need to start your Christmas holiday skin preparations!
Typical Process of Microdermabrasion:
The process may vary slightly from spa to spa and aesthetician to aesthetician, but roughly this is how the facial is done:
- Mild Exfoliation
- Microdermabrasion using crystal or diamond-encrusted tip
- Mask and Moisturiser
Time Taken: About 60 minutes
The above three are the best facials for fall. But there are many subcategories under each, pertaining to specific skin types and skin problems. Also, there are a host of other simple facials aside from these complex procedures. Simple hydrating or brightening facials that do the old-school routine of cleansing-exfoliating-mask-massage and sealing with a soft, hydrating moisturiser.
