As winter approaches, the weather begins to cool and the summer humidity begins to dissipate. While we are relieved to see moisture levels drop and say goodbye to frizzy hair, we are not ready to say goodbye to supple skin. When a new season arrives, your skin most likely reacts to changes in the air. As a result, the skincare regimen changes with the seasons to meet the needs of the hour. To combat the unpredictable weather, you should be prepared to take care of your skin as the seasons change.
Switch up your cleanser
The climate varies according to the seasons. One of the first things to consider is your face cleanser. If you go from summer to winter, for example, switch from an exfoliating cleanser to a non-exfoliating cleanser, which is typically milder. Examine how your skin reacts to colder versus warmer temperatures, and vice versa. If you’re changing your skin care routine for the winter, look for face wash formulas in the form of cream rather than gel or foam because they contain more hydrating ingredients. As the seasons change from winter to spring to summer, transition your products from heavier formulations to lighter, more breathable formulations.
Never forget a moisturiser
Whether it’s summer, monsoon season, or winter, keeping your skin moisturised and hydrated is essential for healthy, glowing skin. If you’re transitioning from summer to winter, as we are right now, use a heavier moisturiser to combat dry skin. Typically, the weather cools and the air becomes drier in the winter, necessitating the use of a heavier moisturiser to protect the skin. Whereas in the summer, a lighter moisturiser is required. This is because our moisturiser becomes too thick and heavy during the day as our faces sweat more, leaving us feeling drab or congested. Switching to a lighter moisturiser is an excellent way to alleviate the suffocating sensation that your skin may feel during the hot summer months.
Look for hydrating ingredients
No matter what season it is, keep your skin hydrated. Look for ingredients that are naturally hydrating, such as rose water, aloe vera, honey, turmeric, oats, coconut oil, and so on. They retain moisture and nourish your skin deeply. They are also antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, ensuring that your skin is free of rashes. Winds, whether cold or hot in the summer, can always cause dry skin. So, to avoid skin conditions, always hydrate your skin, preferably with natural ingredients.
Use your shield- Sunscreen
The most common mistake people make in the winter is not wearing SPF. UV rays can harm our skin at any time of year. For lightness, breathability, ocean friendliness, and ease of use, use a mineral-based SPF.
Vitamin C and Vitamin A
If you’re transitioning from summer to winter or vice versa, an antioxidant-rich Vitamin C and A mist or serum may be beneficial. Carrying an aloe vera and rose water face mist with you can help.
