It would seem that with every season, comes seasonal skin conditions. From overly dry skin in the fall and winter months, to perhaps increasingly greasy skin in the spring and summer months. Combating these concerns can sometimes be a bit of a conundrum, but being aware of the shifting seasons – and your skin along with it -can better help you guard against the effects that come with the change in weather.
Ways to Combat Seasonal Skin
Consider changing up your skincare routine from season to season. Perhaps if you use a heavier moisturizer during the colder months, ease up on the moisture content during the warmer months. Warm air has a tendency to bring out your natural oils, which is why your skin begins to become more “greasy”. So piling on the heavy night cream, followed by an equally heavy day cream with SPF coverage, can be a bit too much for your skin as the weather shifts to sun-riddled skies.
Although you don’t necessarily want to undergo a “trial and error” application process with creams and toners and cleansers – as this can be a costly measure – you may want to visit to your local spa (ideally – ours!), enjoy a soothing facial to rid your skin of those dead winter “scales”, and begin the spring with a recommended skincare line that will best suit your skin type.
Is There Such Things as Too Much Moisture?
Although one might think that there is never too much moisture that you can apply to your skin, there actually is. Too much product on your face could result in irritated skin, rashes and breakouts. This can take time to correct if not caught quickly, so simply piling on heaps of lotion is not an effective method for good skin.
If you are finding your skin has been resistant to absorbing the moisturizer you have, yet is still dry, consider a microdermabrasion treatment in order to get rid of the top layer of dead skin cells that are prohibiting moisture absorption.
This is a quick, simple, and effective treatment with no down time, providing you with renewed skin that no longer harbors the thicker winter skin shield.
Reevaluate Your Skin Each Season
Reevaluating your skincare regiment can help you properly maintain your skin, and coupling that with a visit to your local spa could increase those efforts, and best equip you with healthy skin and your anti-aging efforts.
Also, keep in mind that if you are consuming a lot of coffee or alcohol, your skin is likely dehydrated. So increase your water consumption for optimal overall results.
