Seasonal Skin Care
Having the right skin care is the most important step to keeping your skin healthy and brilliant all year long. Although that task may seem easy, you have to keep in mind the change of seasons. Each season calls for a different skin care routine. ZO Skin Health has every product your skin needs for each season.
Autumn is when we start to get a break from the summer heat. The air is getting colder and drier, but not as harsh. This is the perfect time for your skin to recover from the summer heat, salt water, and chlorine. In fall make sure to exfoliate and moisturize. This is the time that you should be switching from a lotion to a cream, considering you need a heavier moisturizer with the colder weather. Also, make sure to continue wearing sun protection on your skin and your lips even though it’s not summer.
In the winter your body needs to be protected from the cold air by wearing jackets, gloves, hats, etc. just like your face needs to be protected from the brisk winter air. The colder weather and wind make the air drier. The lack of moisture in the air causes your skin to be dry and cause cracking and irritation. To prevent this, you need to moisturize your face and skin daily. Moisturizer protects against harsh elements. You should moisturize right after you shower to replenish the skin with all the oils and water that is essential to it. Even though it is winter, and the sun is not “hot”, the rays are still strong. Sunscreen is still very essential in the winter because of the harsh UV rays. When wearing sun protection, do not forget about your lips. Most people do not think that sun affects their lips, but you have to make sure you wear a clapstick or lip gloss with SPF in it to protect from the UV rays. Lastly, in the winter do not take long hot showers. The natural elements can be stripped from the skin when you take hot showers. Maybe instead of long, hot showers, take a shorter one with lukewarm water.
In spring the weather is just starting to warm up, and it is a perfect time to start being outdoors more. Again, sunscreen is still your best friend, and should be worn daily. Spring is the time to get to know the skin type you have. Depending on the pigment of your skin, your SPF in your lotion should vary to fit your skin type.
Summer brings harsh heat, and harsh UV rays. You should wear sun protection every day and reapply two to three times throughout the day. Hats, and other protective clothing can benefit your skin greatly as well. It is easy to damage your skin in the summer if you are not careful. Summer is the time where you should have a thinner moisturizer and exfoliate to keep your skin healthy.
