When we move from cold to warm weather, humidity is heightened and our skin has to adapt. Did you notice that at some point of the year your skin feels a little bit greasier or less comfortable? Our skin is adapting to the new weather and we need to help it transition and give it the nutrients its needs to stay glowing and healthy during the new season.
Also during the winter, we over protected our skin from the harsh temperatures and “our skin becomes lazy” says Dr Stefanie Williams, dermatologist and medical director at Eudelo
That is something I learned about few years ago and switching my skin care products during warmer months has made a big difference in my skin. My pores are less congested and my skin is a lot more supple, glowing, and soft all year long.
Dermatologists recommend that we make few adjustments to the skin care products we use.
During winter months, creamy cleansers are great to keep our skin hydrated but in spring and summer, it is better to use a face wash that lathers. We need cleansers that contain hydrating and purifying ingredients to cleanse without stripping skin.
Gel and foam cleansers are highly recommended for oil and combination skin. Both gel and foam cleansers are designed for deep cleansing. They decongest clogged pores, removing excess oil.
Cleansing Oils are great for dry and sensitive skin. Cleansing oils are great at attracting impurities and dirt from the skin. Oil bind with oils and impurities and remove them from the pores without drying the skin.
They are many natural face wash that will work great during this warmer month of the year.

We get more sun during the spring and summer month and our skin needs and influx of antioxidants to fight UV damage and aging signs. Vitamin C will help the skin with college production and reparation. It is now very important to tweak our skincare routine by apply these serums under our moisturizers.
We need to scrub away dead skin and dry skin that accumulated during winter months. If you are looking for a natural gentle facial scrub, one of my favorites natural facial scrub is the Province Apothecary If you prefer chemical peels to get rid of dead skin, I love the Pumpkin Enzyme from Erin's face.
We also need to use lightweight moisturizers. Moisturizers with SPF are the best to moisturize your face and give you a lot of sun protection. .
