Skincare tips for a busy fall routine.

back to school, beauty guide, skincare

The arrival of fall signals a return to routine and, for some of us, a busy and hectic schedule that doesn’t allow for a lot of “me” time. At Macias Dermatology, we believe that healthy and beautiful skin doesn’t have to take a lot of time to be achieved. That’s why we’ve dedicated this blog post to sharing insider tips that will help you realize improvements to your skin as easily as possible.

Step 1: Get your skin assessed.

Most of us have tried lotions and potions that worked well for our sister, friend or colleague, but the fact is that every person’s skin is unique; what works wonders for one person can yield little results for another. Using products that are just right for your skin can save a lot of time and money in the long run. At Macias Dermatology, we employ a specialized device called Visia® to analyze your skin. The device uses IntelliFlash®–cross-polarized and UV lighting—to record and measure your skin condition above and below the surface. Based on this detailed information that could not be retrieved with a simple visual assessment, we can create a plan that will treat and correct skin conditions that may otherwise be invisible, such as sun damage, rosacea and dehydration. Follow up visits can track your progress, and allow us to adjust your treatment plan as your skin evolves and improves.

Step 2: Make a standing appointment for a medical facial.

There’s something to be said for the long-standing French tradition of visiting the dermatologist and going for regular facials. Just like regular dental cleansing ensures your long-term oral health, the same logic applies to your skin. Setting 40 minutes aside once a month for a medical facial will preserve the health and youth of your skin for years to come.

Step 3: Keep it simple.

Just like maintaining a regular exercise routine yields results for your physique, being consistent with your skincare makes all the difference. If you keep things simple with products that have high concentrations of active ingredients, your routine should not take more than a few minutes and it will yield results.
