How To Prepare Your Skin For Seasonal Change
With each passing season, our skin requires different care! As the seasons change, so does our skin. It’s important to adjust your skincare for upcoming seasonal changes so that your skin can thrive in different weather conditions. In this blog, we’re going over our best tips to prepare your skin for season changes so that you can keep your skin looking healthy and glowing all year round!
Moisturization is key to keeping your skin hydrated and healthy! As the weather changes, so do our skin’s hydration needs. Winter months are typically cold and dry, so we recommend using a more nourishing moisturizer. During the summer months, we recommend using a lighter-weight, oil-free moisturizer.
Exfoliating your skin helps remove dead skin cells and helps to unclog pores. Since exfoliation gets rid of the first layer of skin, it allows your skin to absorb moisturizers and other products better. However, we don’t recommend exfoliating every day! During cold months, we recommend exfoliating less often because that can cause irritation and further dryness. During warmer months, exfoliating more often, like once or twice a week, can help keep your skin healthy.
Sunscreen Is Your Best Friend
Wearing sunscreen is essential no matter what season we’re in! Even though the UV rays aren’t as strong during winter, it can still damage your skin. However, if you’re only going to wear sunscreen during one season, we recommend wearing it during warmer months because the UV rays are stronger. Wearing sunscreen is the first step to protecting your skin from aging and sunspots!
Invest In A Vitamin C Serum
Adding a Vitamin C Serum to your skincare routine can help your skin thrive during seasonal changes. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that can protect your skin from damage and can help prevent signs of aging, hyperpigmentation, and other skin issues. Vitamin C also acts as a great skin brightener! During the different seasons, our skin can look dull due to any changes in the weather. Add this to your skincare routine and watch your skin shine from within!
Drink More Water
The water you drink reflects directly on your skin. Water is the key to keeping your skin healthy and hydrated! People who drink lots of water are less likely to have scars, wrinkles, and soft lines. Drinking water also helps flush out any toxins that can cause acne and pimples. While water isn’t a cure-all, it can help a lot!
Eat Seasonal Foods
Did you know that seasonal foods are more nutrient-dense than out-of-season foods? Because they’re grown in their natural environment, they are given the right amount of sunlight, water, and nutrients. This means that they are packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants which is essential for healthy, radiant skin.
Schedule A Beauty Service
Our last tip is to schedule a beauty service at Moler Beauty Academy. All services are performed by students under the direct supervision of qualified instructors. Some services that can help you prepare your skin for the seasons:
- Facials: This is a great way to prepare your skin! Not only do they cleanse and exfoliate your skin, but they also provide hydration and nourishment. A great benefit to a facial is that it can be customized to your skin type and needs. Whether you’re experiencing dryness or dullness, we can tailor your facial to fit what your skin needs.
- Glycolic/Enzyme Peels: These are chemical peels that are beneficial during seasonal changes. Both glycolic and enzyme peels can help exfoliate, deep cleanse, and brighten the skin. They can also stimulate collagen production, which is essential for maintaining the skin’s firmness and elasticity.
