When spring comes around, everyone gets in the mood to spring clean. While you’re busy cleaning, don’t forget about maintaining that beautiful skin. Like I always say, you only get one set of skin.
I was reading over at Essence because around this time I have the absolute WORSE skin problems. My skin has been going through some serious battles lately with dryness and peeling as well. Some days I feel like a reptile lol. I found out some really great tips over at Essence so I decided to share with my readers. Plus, one of the products I use daily was mentioned as well so at least I’m headed in the right direction.
Understand Why Your Skin Is Changing:
The reasons why our skin care needs differ in the warmer weather can be attributed to the increased amount of moisture in the air and more frequent exposure to direct sun. “Our skin is responding to the environment,” says Dr. Rosemarie Ingleton, founder of Ingleton Dermatology in New York City and member of the Eucerin Skin First Council. “When the weather warms up, the humidity balance is switching, so you’re going to get higher temperatures and more moisture in the air. People with oily skin are really going to struggle with not looking so oily and people who have dry skin will probably become more normal.”
Check Out Your Cleanser:
Cleansing the skin is the first step in managing moisture balance and you may find that your wintertime face wash is now much too heavy. “My recommendation would be to move from the heavy, creamy products that you use in the winter to something that is more of a soap-free cleanser,” says Dr. Ingleton.
Be Wary Of Overwashing:
For oilier skin types, it’s tempting to wash and re-wash your face if you feel it getting oily throughout the day. Contrary to popular belief, excessive cleansing of oily skin can overstimulate the oil glands, leading to skin that is actually more oily, says Dr. Ingleton.
Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser:
This face wash is a soap-free cleanser that that removes oil and dirt without over-drying your skin.
I am a regular Cetaphil user, but I use the Daily Cleanser.
