Seasonal Skincare in Kansas City

Summer to Fall Skincare

Hey ‘Bar Babes!

As the seasons change from summer to fall, there are two ways we can go about switching up your home care regimens. First, for those of you who are pro youth we can change home care regimens and facial treatments based on skin needs per season. Second, for those of you with skin concerns that need correction, think visible signs of aging, acne, and rosacea, we can begin skin cycling with home care products and more aggressive treatments.

Let’s look at what is happening to your skin during the summer months; we have more sun exposure often leading to UV damage that cause pre-mature aging and pigmentation concerns, the skin can become dry and dehydrated from sweat and pool chlorine, and we have more exposure to environmental free radical damage. During the summer months, our skin care regimen should be focused around prevention and protection incorporating lots of sunscreen, increased antioxidants, and weekly hydration masks. At The Facial Bar during the summer months, we switch to more gentle correctives, such as switching from Vitamin A’s to the Mandelic Clear Complex for more gentle exfoliation and brightening support, as well as dramatically increasing antioxidant support by incorporating one of our 20% Vitamin C serums or the Antioxidant Complex Serum.

As we move into the fall our focus should shift to rejuvenating and repairing the skin with a focus of correcting UV damage, increasing hydration levels, correcting texture concerns, and working on pigmentation. Some of the home care ingredients for those of you that are pro youth that are important during this time of year:

  • Stem cells to help repair the skin – found in the DnAge Reversal
  • Nutrient concentrates to infuse the skin with vital vitamins  – found in the Vita-10 Complex
  • Peptides to correct damage done to collagen from UV exposure & freeze fine lines and wrinkles – found in the Amino Peptide Serum
  • Vitamin A’s to feed the dermis to make the skin act younger – Found in ChronoPeptide A or Synergy A

Now, let’s talk about getting some serious correction going on this fall with your professional treatments at The Facial Bar! It’s PEEL SEASON baby! Our most favorite season of all!

We have peels for EVERY skin concern – pro youth, pigmentation, acne, rosacea, and even compromised skin! We never peel a client on their first visit, so make a facial appointment to get assessed by our expert estheticians, we will help come up with a game plan specifically curated for your skin.

One of the ways we love to prepare the skin to get a really great peel is with peel prepping products at home. This will look like:

Prepping the skin a couple weeks before your peel will help the peel penetrate the skin deeper and more evenly, giving you a beautiful peel result.

If you aren’t into peeling (we still love you!), doing a ‘Bar Power series can be a great way to make change on the skin without the downtime of a peel AND you can still use the peel prepping home care to increase your results!

Make your fall facial appointment today and get your skin treatment game plan mapped out with us! You won’t regret the glow, just in time for the holidays!
