Autumn Skin Flare-Ups

The changing seasons can cause havoc for those with skin conditions.

As the temperature becomes cooler, it is the sudden dryness of the atmosphere that can cause the skin to become rough, dry and dehydrated. After a summer of over-exposure to the sun, this is hardly the recovery that skin would like and the drying out of the skin can cause flare-ups of underlying conditions such as eczema, dermatitis or psoriasis.

Autumn Skin Remedies

The most important advice is to keep on top of skincare. Moisturisation and hydration are vitally important and sun protection should not be dropped just because sunbathing days have passed – even in winter, a daily SPF is a very sensible precaution against the harmful UVA/UVB rays.

Daily Skincare for Autumn

  1. Switch to a richer, more emollient moisturiser in order to help your skin to repair after summer and manage the change to winter weather
  2. Use a gentle, creamy cleanser for extra moisture and protection
  3. Exfoliate, to slough away the dead skin cells at the surface and reveal brighter, new skin beneath
  4. SPF – continue with a daily sunscreen throughout winter, as UVA/UVB rays are a key contributory factor to the skin’s ageing
  5. Drink plenty of water to hydrate from within
  6. Face and body – this is not just about facial moisturising and care, the hands are exposed most of the time and need regular hydration and protection – it is often the hands that suffer at this time of year

Professional Treatments

Consider how expert skincare can complement your daily routine. Modern aesthetic treatments offer a range of options that can deliver remarkable results in improving the skin.

Things to consider:

  1. LED skin therapy, clinically proven to help improve conditions such as eczema or psoriasis with no medication or injections
  2. Laser treatment to repair sun damage and stimulate skin cell renewal
  3. Medical grade exfoliation using a chemical peel or microdermabrasion to brighten dull facial skin
  4. PRP – platelet rich plasma therapy – use of purified plasma proven to help the skin repair and renew itself (originally developed for use with burn victims, indicating how effective this treatment can be)
  5. ACR therapy – autologous cell regeneration combines dermaroller, CO2 mask and PRP for excellent skin renewal results
