Our skin is the natural “fence” between our organism and the environment, which protects us. It is the largest organ of our body and particularly sensitive to climate change. That’s why different cream matches it in the heat (summer) and different in the cold (winter), something that is easy to understand. What we may not know is that the skin suffers more in the spring and autumn, resulting that its needs are greater then.
During these two transition stages, when the temperature and humidity fluctuations are high, our skin pays more “effort” to adjust and maintain its humidity at normal levels.
Dermatologists say that our skin is better suited to constant cold or constant heat and that the ups and downs of temperature are disturbing its balance.
Autumn (SEPTEMBER-OCTOBER-NOVEMBER) is a transition period from summer to winter. The skin is dull, with a tendency to lose its firmness due to dehydration after the intense summer temperatures. Tanning is gone and sebaceous glands are sometimes blocked.
The effects of summer sun exposure are now evident. Now is the right time to apply rich and intensive treatments for hydration and regeneration. Emphasize the correct exfoliation, but also anti-aging and deep-hydrating treatments.
In winter (DECEMBER-JANUARY-FEBRUARY), rhythms fall significantly, cell renewal slows, blood microcirculation weakens. The skin pores close to keep the body’s internal heat and protect it from cold. With limited winter sunshine, vitamin D production is difficult, and this explains slow cell renewal and lack of luster. Like Nature, so the skin needs rest. We therefore choose creams rich in moisturizing and reconstructive factors for the care of our face.
In spring (MARCH-APRIL-MAY) allergies and sensitivities make their appearance! The skin may indicate its “awakening”, but fatigue and accumulated winter toxins are imprinted on our face. Now is the right time to detoxify by choosing a good cleansing of your skin.
In summer (JUNE-JULY-AUGUST) sebum secretion is noticeable and the pores dilate to allow the skin to breathe better. That is why the need for hydration is the first priority. But this also increases the risk that environmental pollutants will penetrate, blocking the skin pores. The skin can become dull or even rough.
So good cleaning is necessary to remove sunscreen filters from the skin. Our main concern should be to provide our skin with all possible precautions from the sun’s attacks and to hydrate it systematically.
