Seasons of Self-Love Best Transition Skincare Tips

For almost every modern woman who is always on the go, we have had our go-to skin care routine for as long as we can remember. Unfortunately, this should not always be the case.

Season changes and skin changes

Summer, being the hottest among the seasons, results to increased water loss from the body. The summer heat often means more oil and sweat. Autumn means cooler air, cooler weather and a remarkable drop in humidity. This results to drier skin and combining these environmental changes with indoor heaters mean bad news for skin, especially those who are prone to eczema.

How do we prepare our skin for autumn? Check this out:

1. Repair Therapy

Chances are – we had too much beach last summer! Autumn marks the season where the effects of the sun’s UV rays take its toll on our skin. Dr. Gohara, a dermatologist, was noted saying, "Summer can take a toll on the skin—even though it’s good for the soul." 

So what do we do? Bring in those antioxidant serums and schedule a visit at The Injection and Infusion Clinic of ABQ.  We might need to get rid of all the free radicals we have accumulated last summer. 

An appointment for a glutathione drip is a very good way to rejuvenate the skin and usher in repair. Glutathione goes beyond the skin – it actually protects the mitochondria, the powerhouse of the cell. No wonder it is often a component in “cellular repair therapy”, an essential but frequently overlooked aspect of skin care.

Glutathione supplements are all over the market, and it is not bad to have your go-to glutathione oral supplement for a daily boost of repair therapy. However, it is more advisable to have your glutathione injections especially when we transition from summer to autumn because our skin needs a little lift. 

Boosting repair and recovery is not optimal with oral supplementations since everything we take in orally goes through first-pass metabolism. We do not absorb 100% of anything we take in by mouth.

The best way to boost repair is through glutathione drips and injections. This way, glutathione effectively enters our bloodstream directly and our body gets to metabolize it 100%. As a result, you get to enjoy the summer and at the same time get to cancel the negative effects summer has on your skin. Studies have shown that glutathione supplementation results in a significant reduction in wrinkles and significant increase in skin elasticity.

Glutathione works wonders for overall health and wellbeing.

2. Recover Therapy

The summer sun stimulates our skin to produce more oil and sweat, so we turn to skincare routines that lessen oil secretion. Autumn’s crisp and dry breeze gets us wanting to have a bit more oil, or serum, in this matter! This explains why everyone is encouraged to switch to thicker moisturizers and avoid hot warm showers as these might repel the natural oils on our skin. 

And to complete the regimen, why not add in peptide serums to get that skin ready for the cold? Serums with active vitamins and minerals are among the best choices to get yourself ready in no time.

Why choose peptide serums? 

First, serums are composed of smaller molecules than your typical moisturizer, thus making it readily absorbable through your skin pores. Thus, your skin locks in just the right amount of moisture that it needs against frigid temperatures.

Second, peptide serums aren’t all about moisture – its all about looking better and feeling better as well. The Injection and Infusion Clinic of ABQ has found ways to get all you need under the same roof! Its product, GHK-Cu, is the best antidote to combat the aftereffects of sun exposure. GHK-Cu addresses problems related to aging, skin spots, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, and fine lines. It can also protect the skin against the sun and promotes wound healing.

Like glutathione, our body naturally produces GHK-Cu. However, as we age, our natural production of GHK-Cu decreases. This explains in part why we lose skin elasticity as we age. We suffer a decrease in GHK-Cu and glutathione stores.
So in a nutshell, peptides play a crucial role in every woman’s skincare routine as part of transitioning to the colder months. Studies have shown that peptides are very effective in strengthening our skin barrier against radiation, bacteria, and other pollutants. It also has anti-inflammatory properties that help the skin against free-radicals. Peptides are vital in the recovery process of the skin, as it eases inflammation and at the same time possess antimicrobial properties.

Every skincare regimen is unique for every individual. Ask our experienced clinicians on which peptide serum to use, and for tips when and how to apply peptide serums during the day.

3. Rejuvenation therapy

Taking time for sun exposure especially when the cool months set in, is a very tempting option. However, always remember you can still get a sunburn during autumn and winter!

There is a constant dilemma as to how long and how often should one get sun exposed. The choice of protecting the skin against UV damage versus having the daily dose of sun exposure to get the recommended daily vitamin D remains. But how significant exactly is Vitamin D for our skin health and why should we consider a Vitamin D boost before entering the cold months?

Skin health is at its optimum when the body has a full store of Vitamin D. Supplementation with Vitamin D is a sure way to replenish body stores, and a much safer and better alternative than sun exposure. With the cold months creeping in, sun exposure becomes more limited due to the layers of clothes we wear, thus, more that vitamin D supplementation becomes more necessary.

The main benefit of Vitamin D is skin protection and skin rejuvenation. In its active form as calcitriol, Vitamin D performs roles related to skin cell growth, metabolism, and repair. People with eczema, psoriasis and vitiligo are among the most benefitted from Vitamin D supplementation.

Not just that, Vitamin D functions has steroid-like properties which are responsible for cell production, cell function, and cell stability. In essence, Vitamin D, in the right amounts, has been found by studies to be protective against skin cancers.

When do we go out for regular sun exposure and how much sun exposure is enough? Studies say that the sunshine vitamin is best obtained during midday or noon

UVB rays are the most intense during noon thus you only need 10 to 30 minutes of exposure to get your body producing natural Vitamin D. This is true even for autumn and winter, but the extra layers of clothes we wear might limit the amount of skin that gets exposed to the sun. With that in mind, it is very essential to consider Vitamin D supplementation during these months! Schedule an appointment with our clinician to discuss further on Vitamin D injections as part of your skin care transition from summer to fall.

Vitamin D injections offer a myriad of benefits not just for the skin but for overall health, including decreased risk for osteoporosis, heart disease, and certain cancers.

Takeaway

Summing it up as repair, recover and rejuvenation therapy, supplementation in the form of glutathione drips, peptide serums, and Vitamin D injections are crucial for your skincare needs as you transition from summer to fall. Of course, don’t ditch essentials like your moisturizers and sunscreens. Special tip though: trade your summer moisturizer to a thicker moisturizer best suited for dry skin during the cold months. Expect drier days ahead, thus drier skin.

As seasons change, our skin requirements change as well. In a world where skincare and drips are becoming the norm, it is essential to know exactly the roles of these supplementations on the body. Decisions guided by evidence-based benefits and well-experienced clinicians is the best way to give your skin the care and protection it deserves.
