Those blissful weeks between Victoria Day and our August Civic holiday seem to fly by, especially with trips to the beach, the park or if you are lucky, to the cottage. The fun summer vibe of sweat and sand can actually, have a major impact on your skin.

Not only do the hot temperatures and humidity dry out your pores, but sweat can clog them. Constant sun exposure can cause early signs of aging and pose potential UV dangers. Luckily, a consultation and treatment plan at one of our 6 Ontario clinics with some at-home remedies can give your skin the post-summer detox it craves!

Here are some ideas for cleansing and repairing your summer-damaged skin, just in time for the leaves to fall and the air to cool.

Chemical Peels and Microdermabrasion

During the summertime, we typically shy away from deep chemical peels because this procedure exfoliates your skin, leaving it baby-fresh and potentially extra vulnerable to the sun. In the late summer and autumn However, our skin care professionals and physicians recommend chemical peels and microdermabrasion.

These procedures are the ideal course of action right after the summer to refresh your skin before fall activities start booking up your calendar. It’s always a good idea to take time after a treatment and block out any sun during the healing time.

Retinol Creams

For clients who are starting to consider anti-aging measures, finding a retinol product is key. Retinol products have been used for decades, working to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Due to their photoreactive nature, they must be treated with caution since they can make your skin more susceptible to sun damage.

If you are planning on spending a hot day at the beach it’s recommended that you take a few days off from your retinol regimen before and after your sun exposure. In the fall, though, Retinols can be used more frequently.

The Best You skin care experts explain that these creams work to gradually shed a layer of skin from the inside out, not only cleansing your skin from summer’s impact but making it look younger too. For a well-rounded skincare routine, we also recommend adding skin-brightening serums with vitamin C. Vitamin C serums can improve the condition of your pores and complexion without being as intense as retinol varieties.

Limelight Photofacial Laser Treatment

While you might have been hyper focused on reapplying sunscreen to your face, it’s not just your cheeks and forehead that battled through summer. Your neck, chest and hands also received a big dose of UV exposure and they deserve some attention. We suggest a series of Limelight photo facial laser treatments, which are a more extensive rejuvenation procedure. The Intense Pulsed Light used in this treatment improves the overall look of the skin by diminishing brown spots and uneven skin tone while improving collagen and elastin production throughout the layers of your skin.

How does it work? Pulses of light are used to penetrate deep into your skin, targeting pigment and causing your blood vessels to constrict. IPL is not particularly painful, but it requires a little downtime post-treatment.

At-Home Hydration Treatments

For a more low-key approach to fall treatments, remember at least one thing: moisturize!

Rejuvenating the skin after the summer’s damage is important for the overall appearance and health of our skin. Routine moisturizing ultimately prepares us for the winter season, which can be as damaging to our skin as the summer. Make it a habit first thing in the morning and last thing before bed to apply your favourite Vivier Moisturizer! This will help your skin replenish after weeks of drying heat. In addition, it is very important to drink plenty of water. Water is always a smart choice for your skin as it keeps it fresh, hydrated, and healthy.
