Transform Your Skin This Fall: Rejuvenate, Hydrate and Protect for a Youthful Glow

Transform Your Skin This Fall: Rejuvenate, Hydrate and Protect for a Youthful Glow

As the leaves begin to change color and the air gets crisper, you may notice that your skin is also undergoing some changes. The golden tan you worked so hard for over the summer fades away, leaving behind the lingering effects of sun exposure and environmental stressors on your skin. The humidity of summer escapes and is replaced with dry, cooler air that leaves your skin needing a little extra TLC.

While you’re digging out your cozier sweaters and trading in iced drinks for warm lattes, it’s time to rethink your skincare routine as well. From treatments like chemical peels and laser resurfacing to the perfect products to rejuvenate and nourish your skin type, Senza Aesthetic Medicine in Redlands offers a plethora of options to keep your skin glowing all season long.

Kickstart the Season With Targeted Treatments

The radiant sun that felt so good during your beach days can be harsh on your skin. Ultraviolet rays lead to signs of premature aging, and the after-effects, like wrinkles and dark spots, can rear their ugly heads as we make our way into the cooler months. Thankfully, our wide array of facial rejuvenation treatments can act as a reset button for your skin and reverse some of that damage.

Chemical Peels

A chemical peel dissolves the outermost layer of dead skin cells, revealing a new layer that is smoother and more evenly toned. The treatment can address issues like sunspots, uneven pigmentation and fine lines.

Clinical Facials

Facials at Senza Aesthetic Medicine aren’t your average spa experience; they are rooted in science. Designed to nourish and rejuvenate your skin, these treatments cleanse, exfoliate and moisturize, providing immediate results.

Our clinical facials are often combined with advanced facial rejuvenation treatments like microdermabrasion or laser resurfacing for optimal results.

Laser Resurfacing

Laser resurfacing treatments target deeper layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production. If you’ve been struggling with sun-damaged skin, laser resurfacing can improve your skin’s texture and tone for a rejuvenated appearance.


Microdermabrasion treatment uses a specialized device to gently exfoliate the surface layer of skin, removing dead skin cells and revealing the fresher, healthier layer beneath. Ideal for treating minor imperfections and signs of aging, microdermabrasion can also improve the effectiveness of your skincare products by enhancing their absorption.

Visiting Senza Aesthetic Medicine in Redlands for a consultation can help you determine which treatment aligns best with your skin type and goals.

Step Up Your Hydration and Moisturization as Humidity Drops

As fall approaches, the air starts to lose moisture. Dry, chilly winds can lead to skin irritation, dryness and even eczema flare-ups. It’s time to re-evaluate your hydrating and moisturizing regimen.

Understanding Hydration vs. Moisturization

Both hydration and moisturization are essential for maintaining healthy skin, but they serve different purposes and are achieved through different means.


Hydration refers to the water content within your skin cells that keeps them plump and bouncy, providing a youthful appearance. The goal of hydrating products is to increase the water content of the skin. Ingredients known to hydrate include hyaluronic acid and glycerin, which draw water into the skin cells. These are often found in serums and gel-based products designed to penetrate deeply into the skin and offer intense hydration.


Moisturization, on the other hand, involves creating a barrier on the skin’s surface to lock in moisture and prevent water loss. This is particularly crucial in colder months or in arid climates where dry air can quickly sap moisture from the skin. Ingredients like shea butter, oils and ceramides are commonly used in moisturizers for their ability to seal in moisture and provide a protective layer.

The Importance of Both

Hydration and moisturization are both crucial for skin health. A well-hydrated skin cell is better equipped to absorb moisturizing products, making them more effective in doing their job of locking in water. Conversely, a well-moisturized skin surface is less likely to lose water, keeping cells plumped and hydrated.

For comprehensive skincare, you often need both types of products. Hydrating serums can be used first to infuse your skin cells with water, followed by a moisturizer to lock that hydration in. This layered approach can help you maintain skin that is not only hydrated but also well-moisturized, creating strategic protection for your skin against the harsher fall and winter weather.

HydraFacial: The Ultimate Hydration Treatment

A highly effective option to combat dryness is the HydraFacial treatment. This procedure deeply cleanses, exfoliates and hydrates your skin, leaving you with a smooth and refreshed complexion.

Moisturize: Lotion, Cream or Ointment?

Lotion is the lightest type of moisturizer with the highest water content, meaning it is easily absorbed but less effective at sealing in moisture. While lotion might have worked well for you in the summer, your skin might crave something richer as the weather gets colder. Creams are heavier and more moisturizing than lotion, making them ideal for a range of skin types in the fall. Ointments provide the most protective barrier for the skin and are best for those with dry skin types that are especially susceptible to dehydration in the fall and winter.

At Senza, we offer a variety of skin moisturizers from Alumier MD, a line of medical-grade skincare products with high-quality ingredients backed by science.

Don’t Ditch the Sunscreen

Yes, even when the sun plays hide and seek behind the clouds, you should still apply sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher daily, especially on your face. Ultraviolet rays don’t take a vacation; they can penetrate through clouds and windows, contributing to premature aging and an increased risk of skin cancer.

Turn Back Time With Retinol

For those who are dealing with signs of aging like fine lines or uneven skin tone, retinol products can be a game-changer. These powerful formulas promote cellular turnover, giving your skin a more youthful appearance. But before you start with any product, especially ones as potent as retinol, a consultation can provide you with the guidance you need for effective usage.
