Every three months, like clockwork, the seasons are going to change. The summer heat, winter cold, wind and rain can have a serious affect on skin.
While a relaxing facial with non-toxic facial products can prove to be an easy fix, but we encourage you to take precautions in your home care and regular facials!
Spring into Summer: Here Comes the Sun!
Spring’s warmer temperatures may increase outdoor play and sun basking, which can cause sun damage for unprotected skin. Use sunscreen and a hat daily when outdoors. Outdoor exercise can take its toll as well, sweat clogs pores and encourage breakouts.
During the summer months, skin problems like acne can intensify, so be sure to cleanse with a gentle exfoliating facial cleanser. The sun’s ultraviolet rays can cause serious skin conditions for unprotected skin, like third-degree burns and skin cancer. Excessive sun exposure can also deplete the skin’s elastin and collagen supply, contributing to premature aging for those who choose to skip their daily SPF! Monthly facials can help detect potential skin conditions and help improve skin’s elasticity, collagen and skin tone when exposed to sun often.
Allergies can also contribute to the skin’s imbalance. Puffiness, redness, flaking and peeling are common symptoms when suffering from allergies. In the most serious cases, rashes and hives will also occur. A soothing Blooming Moon facial with a cooling eye treatment will help sooth irritation and decrease redness and/or puffiness.
Fall and Winter: The Cold is Not Your Friend
Often the fall and winter seasons cause more problems for our skin. Although the sun’s intensity may drop dramatically at this time, the same is true of the air’s humidity as indoor heaters are put to work. Once heaters kick-on, so does dry, flaky skin.
Winter’s falling temperatures and bitter winds conspire to drag the last drop of hydration from the skin. Lack of hydration causes chapped, cracking skin which can leave you with a dull appearance…not to mention it’s uncomfortable! While seeking shelter from the cold might seem like a good idea, the dry heat found inside most buildings will usually exacerbate the problem.
Lastly, winter skin can affect the healthiest of skin, but those who suffer from such pre-existing dermal afflictions such as eczema or psoriasis will often see these conditions worsen when temperatures drop. What to do?!
