Fatigued Fall Skin

Ask Dr. Z

Why is my skin creased like an autumn leaf?

As we enter fall, you may notice your skin tone appears flat or dull. You may also feel as if fine lines are more noticeable, or your skin just doesn’t feel as supple and resilient as you’d like.

That’s because summer sun exposure and changes in fall temperature can cause cell turnover to slow down and deplete the skin of nutrients. Read more

Is it dry skin or a damaged moisture barrier?

I find that many patients who believe they have dry skin simply have a compromised moisture barrier.

Summer sun exposure can damage your skin’s moisture barrier, creating small cracks in the surface of your skin—invisible to the naked eye—that allow moisture to escape. 

All I need is a moisturizer, right?

In my opinion, traditional moisturizers don’t do a great job of addressing this issue. They offer a temporary fix and keep you addicted to their use.

Instead, I recommend a product to repair the skin barrier and restore new cell skin growth—Wrinkle & Radiance Remedy is designed to do this. If you need additional moisturization, you can add Deep Moisturizer.

  • I just started using your products and I’ve noticed that my skin is very dry is this normal in the beginning

  • Hi Deborah – Yes! This is normal as your skin is adjusting to the products. You can always supplement with an additional moisturizer if needed, or try reducing your usage before building back up to daily use. Dryness or irritation will typically peak around day 12 to 14 and then subside. Once your skin has adjusted, you should find these products are very hydrating. Please give us a call at 1-800-260-2250 if you have other questions. We are always happy to adjust your regimen if needed or make any recommendations we can to help boost your results. Our office hours are M-F 9a-6p ET and our goal is to help you achieve healthy, beautiful skin!
