Natural Skincare Tips For Changing Seasons
Natural Skincare Tips for How Our Skincare Routine Needs Change With the Season
Just as our clothes change to suit the weather, so do our natural skincare needs. Its fine to have a few key natural skincare products that you never deviate from, but it’s also important to remember that skin needs different beauty products in different climates.
When the weather outside is frightful, chances are your skin is working extra hard to maintain its moisture level. Cold temperatures, harsh winds, snow and ice all take a toll on your skin and this often results in facial skin feeling dry, dehydrated and parched. If you’re normal skin type is oily or you’re prone to greasiness, it’s important to still ensure that your skin is getting the moisture it needs. The best thing you can do is invest in a natural skincare facial cream that is designed for your skin type and make sure in your beauty regime you apply it liberally, both before you leave the house and before you head to bed.
If your skin is dry, the same rules apply, you just need to make even more effort with your beauty regime to keep your skin feeling moisturised. Consider using your favourite natural skincare night cream as a mask a few times a week by cleansing and toning your skin, then applying a thick layer all over your facial skin without rubbing it in. Leave the mask for as long as you can, then rub in any remaining natural skincare moisturiser.
When the weather outside is delightful, chances are you’re going to sweat in the heat. This has an impact on all skin types for several reasons; not only will most skin types end up leaning towards being prone to oiliness, but as you sweat and a sweaty film is present on your face, dirt and grime is more likely to get trapped on the surface which, if left to its own devices, can cause blocked pores, spots and dull skin tone. Therefore it’s really important to be extra vigilant with your skincare cleansing routine every evening.
A common mistake oily skin types make is to skip moisturiser all together when the sun is out. This is a bad idea as whilst sweat may leave your skin feeling like it’s greasy, grease is not moisture and your skin will still need extra help with moisturising, regardless of whether it feels that way on the surface.
