Most of us struggle with our skin health after an active summer, so you’re not alone if you have oily, irritated, and sun damaged skin right now. At Kingsway Medispa & Wellness Center in Midwood, Brooklyn, New York, our specialists focus on comprehensive wellness and aesthetics care to help you look and feel like your best version of yourself, at every time of the year.
Facials are an accessible and affordable way to revitalize your skin, so they’re one of our most popular treatments — especially as we head into fall. Keep reading to learn what facials can do for you after a hot summer.
During the summer months, it’s natural to sweat far more than usual. This can trigger extra oil production, which then traps dirt and debris in your pores. In addition, many sunscreens clog pores. The end result is troubled skin.
Post-summer facials can pull all that extra oil, dirt, and debris out of your pores so your skin can breathe again.
Old skin cells normally shed naturally as your body produces new ones — but the extra oil you produce during the hot months can disrupt that natural exfoliation process by trapping the skin flakes and preventing them from shedding.
Facials can gently dislodge those dead skin flakes, which exposes the healthy skin beneath. In this way, facials can enhance both skin texture and tone.
The signs of sun damage often include fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation (skin discoloration like freckles and age spots). Even with careful daily sunscreen use, most people who spend any significant time in the sun experience some level of sun damage.
Facials can counteract the signs of sun damage by helping you shed old skin, opening your pores, and exfoliating the discolored and damaged patches of skin.
During the colder months of the year, skin can get incredibly parched. Good skin care, especially a quality moisturizer, can provide the deep hydration your skin needs at that time. But, when your skin is full of dirt, you can’t really get the full benefits of your skin care products.
Having a facial now helps you slough off the summer skin damage and exposes the fresh new skin beneath and makes it much easier to absorb the moisture your skin needs to be healthy during the fall and winter months.
Our Kingsway Medispa & Wellness Center specialists offer a wide range of facials, and we’re happy to customize your treatment for your specific concerns like acne, aging, or skin sensitivity. And, if you have especially severe sun damage, we may recommend an occasional chemical peel to provide deep skin rejuvenation.
