Look, it happens every year: the changing of the seasons, from spring to summer, then autumn and winter.
Along with this, our bodies react, too. You can notice it immediately when your lips start to chap from the cold icy winter wind.
But your lips aren’t the only feature affected. Winter is just as harsh on your skin as summer and, because of this, winter is the season during which you need to introduce “an array of deeper, more aggressive treatments,” explains Renewal Institute – which means Autumn is when you start prepping for them.
Here’s what they suggest:
If you are contemplating a more aggressive anti-ageing, pigmentation or sun damage treatment and you haven’t started preparing your skin – it’s not too late.
March and April give you plenty of time to get your skin ready to ensure you can have deeper treatments in the months of May, June and July.
Pretty simple, right? Kind of.
For every issue, there is a treatment and for every treatment, there is a process. This is where skincare professionals cannot be taken for granted. Just check out the wealth of knowledge Renewal Institute offered up when asked a few questions on treatments and prep:
What Concerns Do Aggressive Treatments Address?
Most aggressive resurfacing treatments are done to improve conditions that affect both the upper (epidermal) and lower (dermal) layers of the skin. These concerns and conditions cannot simply be treated superficially as the chosen treatment must be able to remodel and recondition the deeper dermal layers as well. The most common concerns treated include: advanced signs of ageing; deep lines and wrinkles; severe sun damage; acne scarring; stretch marks and deep pigmentation.
