The first day of fall/autumn is September 22nd, 2009.
When the seasons change, you may notice that your skin changes as well. Oily skin turns a bit more normal, and normal skin may start to feel a bit drier. Acne-prone and rosacea patients may begin to see breakouts and flare-ups.
As the weather turns cold, you may need to change your skin care products to accommodate changes in your skin. At SkinMD, we recommend that you come in for a skin check-up and comprehensive complexion analysis to get you set for healthy, radiant winter skin.
Here are a few tips to keep in mind as winter approaches:
1. Moisturize, Every Single Day
Apply the recommended moisturizer for your skin after cleansing and applying anyprescribed serums.
2. Use your Sunscreen Daily
Sunscreen is a DAILY essential in everyone’s skin care routine, even in fall and winter.Overcast skies and relative lack of sun does not preclude protecting you skin from UV rays.UV rays penetrate clouds, overcast skies and reflect off water, glass, cement, sand andsnow.
SkinMD recommends using a moisturizer with SPF 30. You must re-apply our sun/UVprotection at least every 2 hours every day. For this, we recommend ColorescienceSunforgettable SPF 30 Broad Spectrum, Very Water Resistant Mineral Sun Protection. It is very portable, light-weight and EASY to apply through out the day.
3. Drink Plenty of Water

4. Eat for Healthy Skin
Think to include foods like tomatoes, soybeans, nuts, salmon, avocados and pomegranates in your diet. They contain key nutrients that help your skin defend and repair itself.
