September is a big transition month. It’s not cold yet but it’s not summer, either. This awkward in-between time can be challenging to dress for and can also present challenges for our complexions like dryness. But did you know there are also several health and beauty benefits to the cooler weather?
If you’re dreading the upcoming winter, take heart! Here are a few things you may be able to look forward to in the cooler months ahead:
Relief from varicose vein symptoms!
If you struggle with varicose veins, you have probably noticed that summertime is tough on them, because the heat makes your blood vessels expand, making blood flow even more challenging. The cooler temperatures cause your blood vessels to constrict, which helps to ease blood flow and improve your comfort.
Boost in cognitive function.
Research indicates that people who work in cooler offices are able to concentrate better and report higher productivity than people who work in warmer temperatures. So if you’ve been experiencing reduced energy and motivation this summer, there’s a good chance the crisp air could put some much-needed pep in your step!
Moderately cold weather can actually be good for your skin’s health because it constricts the blood vessels in the skin, reducing blood flow. This makes the vessels less prone to redness and swelling. What’s more, people tend to produce less oil and sebum in the winter, which means fewer breakouts.
It’s laser skin rejuvenation season!
Saving the best for last, the colder weather is a perfect time to renew your skin with professional laser skin treatments like Halo™ and BBL™ photofacials. In the cooler months, it’s much safer for your skin to undergo laser treatments since you’re inside more and away from the sun. As you probably already know, lasers and the sun are a terrible mix! This is why we highly recommend scheduling your skin resurfacing treatments with us in the fall and winter. Laser skin treatments are a proven tool from smoothing your skin texture, improving acne scars, brightening dullness, treating acne and congestion, shrinking pore size, diminishing lines and wrinkles, and so much more.
