Every season brings with it a different set of skin characteristics and problems. It can get hard to keep up with the ever-changing beauty regime, but, it is extremely important, as the same beauty regime can damage the skin in several ways.
Bindiya Gupta, beauty expert at personal care brand, Organic Harvest, and Sharad Kulkarni, in-house doctor at Kama Ayurveda, list down some tips for your skin to keep up with the changing seasons.
The routine remains the same in all seasons with variations only in product types. Summers call for deep-clean cleansers. Monsoon requires shine and glow cleansers whereas, winters call for mild cleansers along with intense moisturising. Toner with green cucumber and tea would be the best for the hotter weather and to keep the acne at bay. It is also very important to make sure the product being used in your beauty regime are organic as it not just helps the skin maintain its hydration, but, also treats it from within as the ingredients are in the purest form.
The amount and frequency of moisturisation should be adapting to the fluctuating temperatures of the changing seasons. The same applies to cleansing regimes, which may be more frequent during summer. Toning suits all the needs of all seasons, as it helps purify clogged-skin pores and minimises their enlarged appearance for a smoother, younger-looking complexion.
Sunscreen is a must have and remains the same for all seasons, but monsoon particularly requires a water-proof sunscreen.
Scrub it off
An organic anti-tan scrub is important for the summers, whereas a regular organic exfoliating scrub is prefect for monsoon and winters, but be careful while scrubbing skin when it’s rough and dry.
Its importance remain constant throughout but a shea butter lip balm would work like magic, especially in winters. Excessive use of makeup during transitioning seasons should be avoided. It is advised that any products or methodologies adopted should not be overused.
Eat well, sleep well
Always wear a smile. It helps take an optimistic approach to every day and focus on the enjoyable aspects of the changing seasons. Consult an expert if any problem persists.
