Spring and summer area typically filled with longer days, more sunshine and warmer weather. Sounds dreamy, right? Of course, after we’ve dealt with the drier climate during the winter season and trying to get our skin to combat that dryness–we will have some changes in our skin that come with the weather changes. One of the downsides of the warmer weather seasons is that many people tend to experience breakouts with more oil production and sweat being common factors in our skin. You’re probably starting to wonder how you can begin avoiding warm weather breakouts, right? We’ve got you covered.
Hydration is super important for your skin, regardless of the season but you’re going to want to make sure you’re really focusing on staying hydrated. Experts have said that excessive oil production can actually be a sign that you’re lacking hydration in the body. When your skin isn’t hydrated enough, it tries to overcompensate by producing more oil than you really need–which can often lead to those warm weather breakouts. So, to really make sure you’re avoiding that make hydrating your body a major focal point of your daily routine.
Stay Consistent with Your Routine
As the weather gets warmer many of us enjoy spending our days outside more often, and while you may not realize it you’re producing more sweat and being exposed to a lot of different elements. We get that after a long day outside, the last thing you probably want to do is go through your skin care routine before heading to bed. However, when you skip your routine you’re not washing away the sweat and oil your skin is producing throughout the day.
Make sure you’re staying true to your routine and not skipping it, to really keep your skin on track and ensure that you’re cleansing your skin from everything it’s exposed to on a daily basis.
Use the Right Products
Since the weather is changing, it’s important to make sure that you’re catering your skin care products accordingly. With warmer weather, your skin is likely going to have different needs. While your actual skin type isn’t going to be different you likely won’t need as heavy or creamy of products to get your skin on track during the warmer months. In fact, the products that you use in the winter months will likely be too heavy for the warmer months. Switch up your products as the warmer weather begins to set in to adjust to the weather adjustments–this often means using products that are lighter weight. This will help to make sure that you’re still getting the steps needed in your skin care routine without having products that are just too heavy for your skin.
So often when we don’t feel as dry, like we often do during the summer months, we put our exfoliating routine to the wayside. However, our skin needs exfoliating during the warmer months as well–it’s a crucial step in really helping to avoid warm weather breakouts.
