What you need to know about the change of season and skincare.

 

Listen to your skin, especially when the season changes.

Days are getting shorter; the sun is setting earlier, and the weather is getting colder. Summer is on its way out and winter is almost here. The change of season means that so many things are about to change. Your skin will definitely react to the changes in weather. Humidity levels in the air will fluctuate, and they will be lower in winter.

With lower humidity—typically what we experience during the cold winter months—our skin’s moisture levels can drop, and one can experience dryness and duller skin. This is why rich moisturizers are key during the colder seasons. Before we get into some of the seasonal changes you’ll make, it’s important to point out the aspects of your skin care routine that will always stay the same.

Cleanse

In the colder seasons you’ll want to focus on hydration since the low-humidity levels can dry out your skin.

Sebamed’s Winter Essential combo pack includes a Sensitive cleansing bar, which is 100% soap and alkali free. It also supports and protects the natural barrier function of the skin’s acid mantle with pH 5.5 formulation.

Moisturize

Use a moisturizer immediately after a shower to seal the moisture in. Use a rich moisturizer like Sebamed’s Moisturizing cream – The cream is rich in Vitamin E and helps to protect sensitive skin against free radicals, which cause premature ageing. The nourishing care complex restores the moisture balance of the skin.

Don’t forget to moisturize twice a day.

Other things to consider:

Wear a sunscreen every day

The winter sun can be more harmful to the skin because we tend to sit outside in the sun more and Not only can this aggravate pigmentation, but also prematurely age your skin. Wear a sunscreen every day, even in winter.

Stay hydrated

Lack of water intake reflects on your skin. It can make your skin look dull and dehydrated. Don’t skip out on your recommended water intake.

In summation: the skin likes consistency, so when factors, like weather, change, it’s like a shock to the system. You will have to adjust your skincare routine to maintain adequate hydration.

Listen to your skin and do what’s best for it.
