Autumn by no means allows you to stop caring for your body. The opposite, it is the time to rejuvenate and prepare skin for harsh winter. This season is perfect for getting rid of skin discolorations caused by the sun, minimalizing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Why autumn is the good time for any beauty treatment? The weather is quite stable, no hot days and no too cold. The summer is the worst time for any treatment due to the sun exposure. The skin is usually very damaged and dry and it is the perfect time to provide it with hydration and nourishment.
What beauty treatments are recommended during this season?
Microdermabrasion is a great treatment for deep exfoliation, improving the skin texture, and softening wrinkles and fine lines. It is skin resurfacing which removes the dead skin layers and stimulates new cells growth. This procedure can be done on all parts of the body especially on the face neck and décolleté. The first s step of the microdermabrasion procedure is deep cleansing the skin to remove all impurities and make-up. It is important to make sure that the skin is dry before the going to the next step.
The beautician will then use a special sucking wand to gently remove the dead skin cells. The microdermabrasion is a great for anybody with acne, acne scars, skin hyperpigmentation. Anybody who would like to minimalize the appearance of wrinkles and soft lines will also benefit from this treatment.
Laser Hair Removal is another treatment that needs to be performed during colder months. The skin cannot be tanned and the hair needs to be at least 3mm long so that this procedure is successful. It may be difficult to walk around in a short skirt with unshaved legs; that is why it is better to do it when we start wearing long trousers. The laser penetrates the skin and destroys the hair follicle resulting in permanent hair lose.
To get permanent results the treatment needs to be repeated at least 10 times within 3 years. It works the best for people who have hair darker than their skin. For light heads, the laser treatment may not give the required results. There are no major side effects, the treatment is gentle to the skin, and even sensitive people can benefit from it. The main disadvantage of the laser hair removal is the cost. The whole body session may cost up to £200 whereas just armpits £45.
