Prepare Your Skin for Fall | Curcio Dermatology
Just because the summer season is over, doesn’t mean we stop taking care of our beautiful skin. From the fluctuating UV index and temperatures to the dryer and cooler air, the fall season brings a variety of weather we need to protect our skin from. Let Curcio Dermatology help you step into your fall skincare routine with ease. Learn how you can prepare your skin for fall and protect it throughout a variety of weather conditions!
- Don’t Skip Sunscreen. Just because it’s fall doesn’t mean the sunshine and UV index disappears. You can still experience skin damage from the sun at any time of the year. With all of the fun, outdoor fall festivities, we want to make sure you keep your skin protected!
- Moisturize. It’s time to swap out your lightweight summer moisturizers for a thicker and replenishing moisturizer. Since the cooler weather tends to decrease the humidity levels, you will want to make sure your skin isn’t drying out. Combat the changes in the air by applying a hydrating and repairing moisturizer.
- Schedule Regular Dermatologist Appointments. With the intense summer weather at our backs, now may be the time for you to try out laser treatments, peels, or any medical dermatology treatments. Curcio Dermatology offers several skincare treatments that may help improve your overall skin health during this fall season. Whether you are looking for a medical procedure or a cosmetic skin treatment for the fall, Curcio Dermatology can provide you with what you need. Our skilled team can set you up with an appointment to assess your skin concerns, such as:
- Acne Scarring
- Benign Growths
- Brown Spots and Freckles
- Excessive Sweating (Hyperhidrosis)
- Moles (Nevi)
- Pre-cancers (Actinic Keratoses)
- Skin Cancer
