    Summer has given your skin a hard time!

    It’s time to treat her to care For most of us, it’s not easy to say goodbye to summer. We are just getting used to shorter and shorter days, cooler weather, less sunshine and the ever-present autumn depression. However, the sooner we realise the change of season, the sooner we accept it, adapt to it and start making changes in our daily self-care.

    Our dermatologist MUDr. Alexandra Rozborilová, PhD.:

    “Autumn is the time when you should focus on all the damage done by the sun’s rays, long bathing in salt or chlorinated water and the rapid temperature changes caused by air conditioning. It’s also a transitional period when you can perfectly prepare your skin for the cold winter, which your skin should enter in the best possible condition,” she explains.

    Each season requires specific skin care. While the products we use in the summer should primarily limit sebum production and protect us from the harsh rays of the sun, autumn cosmetics should help restore the skin’s balance. The skin at this time needs a lot of vitamins and other nourishing and moisturizing substances.

    Check your skin After the summer, it should go without saying to check your moles and pigmentation and pay extra attention to the neoplasms you didn’t have on your skin before. ,,It is confirmed that sunlight accelerates skin ageing and causes the formation of various benign tumours. It is also known to cause skin cancer in the worst cases. That’s why it’s a good idea to see a dermatologist after a summer sunbath to check if there’s anything wrong,” warns Dr Novotná.

    Autumn is the ideal time for skin treatments, as most of them require a sun ban of several weeks. During this period it is a good idea to have pigment spots, dilated blood vessels removed or undergo laser procedures to remove growths.

    Get rid of dirt After the summer, rid the skin on your face, but also on your décolleté or back of all impurities. The water-resistant sunscreens you used in the summer have left elements on your skin that are now clogging your pores. A mud scrub or a cleansing facial scrub can help you get rid of them. Peels are very effective products for deep cleansing of the pores and perfectly prepare the skin for further cosmetic care. Simple mechanical peels can also be done at home. More demanding is chemical peeling, which belongs exclusively in the hands of a specialist, as it uses different concentrations of acid. It helps in improving the skin condition after acne, for oily skin, to soften its surface, flatten scars, reduce pore size, fade pigment spots, smooth fine surface wrinkles and overall brighter skin appearance.

    Moisturise the skin In autumn, start using creams with a different formula than the ones you used in summer. Choose those with a thicker consistency and more nutritious ingredients. Focus on hydration and vitamins. For targeted hydration, it’s a good idea to apply a hydrating serum or treat yourself to a hydrating or regenerating mask. Take advantage of the beneficial effects of olive oil, almonds or goat’s milk. Don’t think you can stop using SPF products as soon as summer is over. Even in autumn, the sun occasionally comes out from under the clouds and its rays are still dangerous. Choose one of the SPF make-ups and you’ll kill two birds with one stone. If you don’t wear make-up, there is also a wide range of day creams that protect against the sun’s rays.

    Remember that beauty comes from within. The skin is nourished by the blood and here, in turn, directly influences your diet and lifestyle. “It’s not only important for the skin to follow a consistent drinking regime. Without water, the skin dries out and is unable to absorb nutrients or excrete harmful substances. When it comes to diet, excessive amounts of fat, sugar and salt are bad for the skin. Don’t close yourself in unventilated spaces in autumn, as the lack of oxygen will also have an adverse effect on your skin. At any time of the day, weather permitting, take a walk in the fresh air and also take time for active exercise, which gets the blood flowing to the skin. Finally, I recommend that you don’t neglect sleep and deprive your skin of its natural ability to regenerate while you sleep. Even in aesthetic medicine, it is better to prevent a problem than to solve it once it has arisen,” advises Dr Novotná.
