How to Help Your Skin & Body Transition to Fall
It’s that time of year again! Cooler temperatures are here, and the trees are dawning their autumn attire. That’s right; it’s fall. As Mother Nature seamlessly transitions, it’s time to talk about the fall skincare and body tips that will make your season sensational.
It’s the perfect time of year to reassess your skincare regimen and overall wellness. The holiday season is rapidly approaching, which means camera flashes and selfies are about to start flying. You no doubt want to look and feel your best, so let’s talk about the top skin and body tips for transitioning to fall.
Fall Skincare 101: Pamper Your Skin
The fall and winter months are accompanied by brisk temperatures and dry air. As your body’s primary protector, your skin takes the brunt of the weather. Cooler temps and crisper air can cause chapping, flaking, dryness, cracking, and even pain. But you can counter the unwanted impact of fall weather by adjusting your skincare routine.
Tip #1: Enhance Hydration
Hydration is imperative to skin health. When your skin lacks it, the results can range from poor skin health and susceptibility to common skin conditions to premature aging. Incorporating a hydrating moisturizer or hyaluronic serum into your regimen is a great way to give your skin the water and hydration it needs to weather cooler temperatures.
Tip #2: Add a Heavier Moisturizer
Unless you live in a tropical area where moisture is almost always abundant, fall signals the start of a decrease in environmental moistness. The result? Dry skin that can flake, chap, and crack, which can be immensely uncomfortable and embarrassing. Chances are a heavy lip moisturizer is one of your go-tos tools for fall and winter beauty. Don’t forget to grab a heavier moisturizer for your skin, too.
Summer is a great time for light gel moisturizers. Fall calls for something more stout, like a hydrating lotion, rich ceramide, or potent serum.
Tip #3: Exfoliate Regularly
Exfoliating during the summer isn’t always an option due to some skin types experiencing increased sensitivity thanks to summertime sun, heat, and the mix of chemicals from swimming. As a result, exfoliation is often kept minimal to prevent skin damage. Fall calls for a different strategy.
When autumn hits, it’s the perfect time to repair UV damage and brighten your complexion. Exfoliating is vital if you want to achieve silky smooth skin and repair any lingering summer damage. Fall is the perfect time for a light chemical peel or a customized Halo session, Laser CoolPeel or Pico Fractional Laser Treatment.

Fall Body Transition
Pumpkin spice and peppermint are in the air, and the coffee, cakes, cookies – yes, it’s that time of year! All of the tastiest and most calorie-packed recipes come out during the holiday-filled fall and winter months. It’s the toughest time to stick to a diet because it’s so easy to cheat. Why not give your figure – and your skin – an extra boost?
Body Sculpting Before Spring and Summer
Body sculpting technology is used to remove unwanted fat deposits that are resistant to exercise. This tech can help you get the toned results you want without surgery, and it can also jumpstart your figure during the holidays. While body sculpting is not a replacement for a healthy diet and exercise, it is a highly effective supplement. It can help shed stubborn fat around your mid-section and in tough-to-target areas like your back, arms, thighs, and legs.
Why not work on body sculpting before spring and summer? You have at least four to five months to focus on getting your beach body ready, and body sculpting is one of the most convenient solutions. Our team of highly trained experts recommends:
- CoolSculpting: It’s an FDA-cleared (please make note for CoolSculpting moving forward) fat-freezing procedure that eliminates clingy fat. Many times compared to liposuction, it also achieves fat reduction results, but without invasive, and often dangerous, surgery. Find out more in our CoolSculpting Guide.
- Exilis Ultra: It’s a great solution for both body sculpting needs and skincare. Exilis Ultra is used to shrink fat deposits, but it can also treat skin laxity and reduce wrinkles. For some, it’s an all-in-one solution. Learn more in our Exilis Ultra Guide.
