The cooler temperatures of fall are a great relief after suffering through the sweltering heat of the summer. 🍂 It is now time to put on cozy sweaters and sip pumpkin spice while watching the leaves change. The change in the season also means it is time to change up your current skincare routine. Here, we have put together the best tips to care for your skin this fall so you can obtain your fall glow!
Fall Skincare Treatments
Having a good skincare routine means something that should last all year, but there are a few things to change up each season depending on the temperatures and air of the season. The summer air can often make your skin dry, so fall is the perfect time to get rid of that summer dryness before the winter chill can come and dry it out again. Here are some ideas of treatments to get rid of summer dryness and start obtaining your Fall Glow!
Vasu Skin Solutions’ DiamondGlow is the perfect treatment to start getting your fall skin ready for the holidays. Our DiamondGlow®, or Vasu Microderm Infusion, is a non-invasive procedure that exfoliates the skin to rejuvenate it. It infuses a potent serum into your skin that removes toxins, stimulates collagen growth, evens out your skin tone and texture, and improves circulation. This will do a lot of work to revitalize your skin after the summer.
Skin Pigment Treatments
If you have unwanted skin pigment, damage from the summer sun, or broken capillaries, fall is the perfect time of year for you to focus on that. If you spent the summer working on your tan, it would need to fade a little before any laser treatments can start; lasers do not go well with a suntan — unless you are having a Clear + Brilliant treatment. Your skin should become lighter in the fall, making it a great time of year for laser treatments.
Clear + Brilliant
The Clear + Brilliant treatment is non-invasive and will leave your face, hands, and dé·colle·té looking smoother and younger. You will have a radiant glow in a single 30-minute treatment. If you have a tan or naturally darker skin, this is the treatment for you; it will not ruin your tan and will leave you with a glow.
The Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment offered by Vasu Skin Solutions is designed to get rid of unwanted skin pigment, redness, and broken capillaries, which can heal the damage that summer has done to your skin. You often need multiple treatments to get the desired results, so if you need these to get your skin holiday ready, it is best to get started now. Many say that Nordlys is the best IPL treatment on the market!
Reverso RF – Reverse Skin Aging – Deep Fractional RF

The Perfect Derma Chemical Peel
The Perfect Derma Chemical Peel is great for softening your thicker, dry skin as well as evening out your skin tone and texture. Your skin will peel from day three to day five and can sometimes flake for up to ten days. Plan ahead with this treatment, it can take up to ten days to finish peeling, but it will leave your skin with a healthy, radiant glow.
Fall Skincare Tips
Now that we have looked at some of the treatments that can help get your skin ready for the holidays, let’s look at a few of our favorite tips to add to your skincare routine.
Avoid Long, Hot Showers and Baths 🛁
The cooler temperatures of fall can make your skin dry, making it crack and turn red and itchy. If you have a skin condition like eczema, that can also get worse in dry, cold weather. While you might love taking a long, hot bath or shower to unwind, these can actually dry out your skin more. It is better for your skin if you use lukewarm water for your showers, and always moisturize immediately after to help seal in moisture.
Use a Daily Moisturizer 🧴
Fall weather can strip the natural moisture from your skin, resulting in dry and flaky skin for the season, even if you do not have that issue the rest of the year. The best way to combat this and make your skin look its best is to use a daily moisturizer that offers more nourishment to your skin than your summer moisturizer does. A moisturizer that is oil-based is more likely to help your skin retain its moisture than a water-based product will, so it is a good idea in the fall to use an oil-based moisturizer.
Use Mild Soap 🧼
Having dry, flaky skin can lead to having too many dead skin cells that can end up clogging your pores and causing breakouts — the last thing you want right before an important event. Washing your face twice a day with a mild soap can help prevent acne and keep your skin looking great.
Use Sunscreen Daily ☀️
Just because the sky is overcast instead of brightly sunny in the fall, that doesn’t mean sunscreen is not as important in the fall as it is in the summer. Use a high SPF sunscreen every day, even in the fall, to protect your skin from UV rays. Sunscreen is necessary to keep your skin safer from cancer and aging, so use it daily, even if it is cool outside.
Dead skin cells tend to build up on dry skin, which can make it hard to keep it moisturized, so you should exfoliate your skin regularly, then follow up with your moisturizer to keep your skin looking its best.
Use a Humidifier
The heaters you are running in your home and at work typically draw the humidity from the air inside, which means it is sucking the moisture from your skin. By running a humidifier, you can add moisture back into your home’s air, which will help keep your skin moisturized.
Don’t wait until November and realize that you need to get your skin holiday ready. Skincare is not a one-stop shop. It takes multiple treatments and the perfect skincare products to obtain holiday skin. Start in the fall and create your desired skin.
