5 Skin Issues That Can Occur In Fall & How to Avoid Them
Fall is considered by many to be a wonderful and magical time of the year. The weather begins to cool, the leaves begin to change and the air begins to smell of pumpkin and spices. Unfortunately, it’s also a time of year when skin problems sometimes pop up in horrifying abundance.
FALL SKIN PROBLEMS
Any change in weather and temperature can wreak havoc on our skin–if we are unprepared for these changes. The wisest thing we can do to help our skin transition smoothly into the fall season ensures that our skincare routine will also transition, providing our skin with what it needs to combat cooler, drier weather. Following are five skin problems that often happen in the fall, and what you can do about them:
1. Dry skin. Colder temperatures often lead to drier skin, especially if we turn on the heater in our office or home and dry out the air in these places. Fortunately, dry skin can usually be handled quite easily by using thicker moisturizers. Try to find ones that are specifically formulated for dry skin and that can be applied several times a day.
2. Eczema. If you are unfortunate enough to suffer from even a mild case of eczema, you are probably aware of the fact that cooler fall temperatures can cause your eczema to flare. Some may find that thicker moisturizers help with this, but it’s always important to speak with your dermatologist to find out how best to treat this condition.
3. Seborrheic dermatitis. Commonly known as dandruff, seborrheic dermatitis can appear on the scalp, in your eyebrows and even on your face. While specialized shampoos, stress management, and nutritional handlings can help with seborrheic dermatitis, it is important to consult with a dermatologist to find out what treatment will work best for you.
4. Rosacea. Rosacea can flare when an individual moves back and forth between cooler outdoor temperatures and warmer indoor temperatures. Sunscreen can help to control rosacea, and some skin care experts even recommend using skincare products that contain coffee or cherry extracts.
5. Keratosis pilaris. While keratosis pilaris is harmless and not usually itchy or uncomfortable, it can show up as patches of raised skin on your arms. It usually appears more frequently when you wear more clothing, as occurs in the fall. Wearing loose, breathable fabrics and exfoliating regularly can help.
Protect Your Skin with a Botanica Facial
Facials should be a regular part of your skincare routine for many reasons.

Our most popular facial is the Botanica Signature facial, which is customized to your skin and includes dermaplaning or microdermabrasion. Not only that, we infuse a nourishing booster, use microcurrent, apply a custom face mask and end with a décolleté and hand treatment. All of that in just one facial treatment – go ahead and book it now!
Botanica Day Spa proudly uses skincare lines that are free of mineral oil, parabens, alcohol, lanolin, PABA, sodium lauryl sulfate, and artificial colors and dyes. These ingredients are found in too many skincare products, but we disapprove of them and have our favorite skincare used and sold through the spa! They are plant and marine-based skin care products, which we believe natural ingredients benefit facials and everyday use far more than any other type available.
Our facials are many and our estheticians are incredible at taking care of our clients, so they have beautiful, healthy skin that they want to show off! Come into Botanica Day Spa for a facial and see for yourself why they are so important and such a staple in spa services.
We aim to help you improve your body any way we can when you leave the spa! No one likes to deal with skin problems, but with the right care they can be minimized or even eliminated. Good luck and happy fall!
