Fall skin care tips

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) – From summer's heat to fall's breeze, skin takes a beating as the seasons change. Here are tips from Licensed Aesthetician Leann Widcamp of the Aesthetics Center to keep your skin healthy this fall:

1. Hydrate your skin

Fall weather can cause dryness, so moisturizers and serums are your first line of defense.

2. Oily skin needs moisture too

Acne or oiliness can be caused by dryness, says Widcamp, because the skin is producing more oil to make up for the moisture loss.

3. Use sunscreen year round

Even is it is cold outside, the suns rays can still cause damage to your skin like age spots or freckles. Wearing sunscreen everyday can help protect your skin year round.

4. Try a professional treatment

Microderm Abrasion or a chemical peel can lift off dead skin cells from summer and leave your skin smooth and glowing.
