Our skin changes throughout the season, as the weather can have an effect on your skin and skincare routine, which is why it’s really important to appropriately care for your skin as the seasons change.
How can the weather affect your skin?
During the colder months both the temperatures and humidity drop and this can affect the dryness of your skin. In the winter months the low humidity tends to dry the skin out. Harsh soaps and beauty products can also strip away the natural oil in the skin, so it is very important to make sure you are caring for your skin correctly for each season.
Should I change my skincare routine each season?
Your skin type can change each season so test if your skin is dry, oily or a combination, then fit your new skincare routine around this. It’s important to buy the correct products for your skin type so that you’re not adding or taking away too much oil from your skin.
Top 3 Tips for winter skin care
Make sure you follow these tips to keep your skin looking its best throughout the winter months.
Always keep your skin hydrated in the cooler months, but make sure you use the correct moisturizer for your skin type (oily, dry or combination) to ensure you will still have a good balance in the oil your skin produces. We also recommend picking up a facial oil to add to your routine if your skin is very dry.
Your skin can become dry and flakey during the colder months. Add a facial scrub to your skincare routine once a week. This will keep skin fresh by removing old dry skin cells.If skin is consistently dry though the colder months, ProSkin offer a range of facials and peels that can instantly improve the look and condition of your skin with just one session. A facial or a peel is a great way to improve skin whilst adjusting to a new season.
- Care for your lips
As well as skin getting very dry in the cooler months, your lips suffer too. Getting dry, chapped lips is very uncomfortable. Make sure you have a lip balm to hand throughout the day to keep lips moisturized. This will keep lips soft and nourished.
