The first day of Spring was March 20th. It’s hard to believe that we are almost a month into this new season. Especially, here in New York. We had absolutely no winter whatsoever.
The temperatures this past winter almost never fell below freezing, which is completely abnormal for New York. I believe it’s in great part due to global warming. But, that’s another blog post altogether.
When the seasons change, your skin’s needs may also change. You may find it to be less dry as the cold air is warming up a bit.
As your skin changes with the seasons, so should the products you use to care for it.
I can’t speak for anybody else’s skin but here are some changes that I make to my skin care regimen when the climate changes from cold to warm to hot:
- Replace heavy body butters with creams and lotions. As the weather warms, my skin doesn’t require the heavy sealing moisturizes as the air is less dry and my skin less dehydrated.
- Keep my hair away from the sides of my face. The warmer it gets, the oils in my skin tend to produce more than when it was cold. Having my hair in contact with the increased oil on my skin increases the chance of an outbreak.
- Treat my skin with normal AND oily skin products. In the winter, my skin is more prone to dryness but in the spring and summer, dryness is usually no where in sight. It’s usually very normalized with some T-zone areas – aka combination
- Exfoliate my body more often. Spring and summer are times when you want to show more skin. Skin that’s shown should be skin that’s smooth. That’s why products like the Favored Feet Gift Set exist – to help exfoliate and smooth out feet so that the latest and greatest sandals can be worn with confidence.
Do you notice your skin changing when the seasons change? If so, what do you do to transition with it?
