You have most likely been using the same skincare routine and products every season. But as the weather changes, so does your skin. Just as we switch flip-flops with boots and tank-tops with overcoats as summer gives way to fall, it's essential to change our skincare routines too.
Here, we discuss seven ways to help with a smooth transition.
Sweating in summer leads to dead cell buildup. Exfoliating removes dead and dry skin and leaves your face and body with a fresher complexion. However, use only natural, gentle exfoliation methods and the best Korean brightening products. If you have been exfoliating your skin during summer, switch to a moisture-based exfoliation product for winter and do it less often.
Lightweight and oil-free moisturizers are for summer when the skin is oily. Right now is the time to stock your cabinets with thick moisturizers with the essential healthy fatty acids to keep your skin replenished during cold months.
Protecting your skin from harmful UV rays is not only meant for summer or when going to a beach. You should use a sunscreen or an SPF-based moisturizer all through the year, no matter the weather.
If you have been enjoying the sun a little too much, chances are your skin has suffered damage. To start winter with a fresh and healthy glow, use cosmetic treatments such as microdermabrasion or natural chemical peels. Such treatments safely remove the outer skin layer, reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
There is nothing more comforting than starting/ending the day with a long hot shower. Even though they make you feel good, super hot showers can damage your skin. Swap them with lukewarm baths and mild cleansing products. Also, pat dry your skin rather than drying it with harsh or coarse towels.
Upgrade your night skincare routine by adding overnight masks. They contain moisturizing oils that hydrate the skin as the temperature drops. Choose a mask that’s right for your skin type to reduce dryness, redness, irritation, and sensitivity as the season changes. Use it once a week before going to bed and you’ll see the difference.
You might wonder what this has to with the changing season, but it’s essential not only for winter but for every season. Cleaning makeup brushes frequently is the best way to reduce acne. Consider the onset of winter as a small reminder to do it if you haven’t cleaned your brushes in a long time.
Unclean brushes develop bacteria over time, which then fester on your face causing acne. Therefore, it’s essential that you take out a few minutes every month to clean your makeup brushes.
