Why the End of Summer Is the Ideal Time for a Microdermabrasion Facial

Ok, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but those warm and sunny days of summer are numbered. Before we know it we’ll be back into Autumn, leaves littering the sidewalks in preparation for yet another wild and wooly winter. And while we might still be relishing in our summer glow, now is actually a really good time to start to prepare your skin for the change in season. Whether we like to admit it or not, the warmer months and additional sun exposure does take a toll on our skin.

I often get asked, what’s the best post summer facial at Temple Day Spa, and I can absolutely attest to our Microdermabrasion facial being the revitalising treatment your skin craves at the end of the warmer months. And here’s why.

1. It Helps To Repair Sun Damage
Summer is synonymous with being outdoors! Whether you’ve spent time down at the beach or lounging around the pool, this increased exposure to the sun, even with sunscreen applied, can lead to UV damage, including hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and a breakdown in collagen.

A Microdermabrasion facial is a gentle yet effective way to exfoliate the outermost layer of the skin, removing dead skin cells and promoting the growth of healthy, new cells which helps to diminish the appearance of sun-induced damage and revitalises your overall complexion. Which means you might not have to say goodbye to that radiant sun kissed glow just yet.

2. Say Goodbye to Clogged Pores
During summer, the combination of sunscreen, sweat, and outdoor pollutants can clog pores, which can lead to breakouts and in time, dull your complexion. Microdermabrasion deeply cleanses the skin, unclogging pores and allowing your skin to breathe and recover from the congestion. It’s a breath of fresh air for your skin and an excellent way to detoxify and prevent acne flare-ups as the seasons change.

3. Enhances Product Absorption
After months of heavy sunscreens and perhaps opting for a swim or outdoor BBQ instead of diligently sticking to your regular skin care routine, the end of summer is an ideal time to reset. Microdermabrasion aids to remove the barrier of dead skin cells that hinder the absorption of skincare products, which means that post treatment your skin is more receptive to serums, moisturisers, and treatments. This makes your skin care and existing routine more effective and allows your skin to be nourished at the cellular level. You’ll be glowing from the inside out.

4. Prepares Your Skin For The Months Ahead
Autumn and winter can be harsh on your skin, with colder temperatures and lower humidity levels leading to dryness and flakiness. Having a microdermabrasion facial right at the end of summer helps to slough off dry, damaged skin and stimulates the production of new, healthy skin cells. This preemptively can make your skin more resilient and better prepared for the dry months ahead.

5. It’s Just A Great Way To Welcome In A New Season
There’s something symbolic about transitioning from one season to another, and a microdermabrasion facial can be your ritual for saying goodbye summer and hello autumn. It’s not just about skin renewal but also about giving yourself a moment of self-care which in my opinion sets the entire tone for the coolers months to come.

So while I hate to admit it, Summer is most certainly coming to an end. But now is the perfect time to rejuvenate your skin with a Microdermabrasion facial. Not only will it address the aftermath of the warmer months, it will prepare your skin for the cooler, dryer months, and ensure you step into the new season with a glowing, healthy complexion. Sounds like a win:win to me.
