Living in beautiful South Beach, we are lucky that we don’t have to experience full season changes that can wreak havoc on our skin. For most of our amazing customers, you live in a full four seasons and changes in the weather could be a factor for why you’re aging as quickly as you are.
With May starting and summer just around the corner, we did some research on how seasons impact your skin and how you can do your best to avoid damage. Stick to these tips and you’ll have younger looking, glowing skin in no time!
It Can Make Your Skin Feel Tight
In winter months, skin gets dry which can give the illusion that your face feels tight. This is also really common in spring and early summer months when temperatures bounce between warmer and cooler without notice. Bursts of humidity mixed with cooler spring winds can have skin looking dry and wrinkles looking huge.
To combat this, make sure you’re using a moisturizer like our Repair & Release Cream that uses ingredients like grape seed, vitamin e, and shea butter to hydrate skin without making it oily. Not only will a hydrated face help to mask wrinkles, but keeping your skin hydrated can help stop new wrinkles forming.
You Risk Additional Sun Damage
If you’re not paying attention to the change in season, you’re far more likely to suffer unexpected sun damage to your skin which causes wrinkles, dark spots, and free radicals. This is especially true in the spring and summer when the sun is getting progressively stronger without drastic changes to temperature.
If the sun is getting stronger and you’re not adjusting your routine, the excess exposure to UV rays can set your skin care efforts back. Once temperatures start to warm up in May, you’ll want to increase your SPF protection and make re-application a priority. Using a sunscreen, wearing a hat, and staying in the shade are some of the easiest ways to avoid sun damage no matter what season.
Your Skin Type Can Change
We are all born with DNA that is responsible for what kind of “skin type” we end up with in life. While the most common skin types are normal, oily, dry and combination, some people notice that their skin type changes as the seasons do. Don’t be alarmed, this is totally normal and just means you may need to adjust your skin care routine to suit your new skin type.
Don’t freak out if your skin suddenly goes from normal to oily or dry while the seasons change, it’s totally normal! Humidity, sun, wind, and precipitation can all play a role in how your skin looks for feels so make sure you stay consistent with your routine. Opt for products that are suitable for all skin types like our Full Beach Bag, so you’re not wasting extra cash on products you may only need for a few weeks a year.
