    ways spring affects your skin

    With the arrival of spring, temperatures and humidity levels start to climb, so you might want to hold off on using that heavy winter moisturiser now. During the transition from winter to spring, our skin is subjected to less chilly and dry air. During spring the air is more humid, it gets warmer outside, and there's more sunshine. Your skin may suddenly alter, and develop acne outbreaks, sunburn, and other conditions. Here are some ways the spring season can impact  your skin: 

    1. Sun Exposure

    Sun Exposure

    With the onset of bright weather, people often plan to spend more time outside and end up exposing themselves to more harmful UV rays. Using sunscreen should be the first step in your skincare routine, especially if you plan to go outside. If you're going to be out in the sun for a long time, you should always increase your SPF to a factor of 30 or higher.

    2. Irritation 

    With all the beautiful plants and trees starting to bloom in this season, allergy sufferers will have a tough time. Your hands may touch your skin far too often if you have itchy, puffy eyes or a runny, watery nose. And when that occurs, bacteria and grime from your hands can readily travel to your skin. Moreover, this may clog your pores, producing pimples, and even result in fine lines and wrinkles from repeatedly touching your eyes. You should see a doctor for such problems and take the appropriate medication.

    3. Breakouts 


    Your skin may produce more natural oil when the weather is more humid, you're more active, and you sweat more. Acne outbreaks and pimples are more likely when the temperature rises. Your skincare regimen should include a significant focus on spring acne. If you tend to perspire a lot, you can notice more breakouts. A cleanser containing anti-acne chemicals is essential for removing oils, dirt, and germs in order to combat this.

    4. More Oil Production 

    Your skin's natural oil production may also rise as a result of the combination of elevated air humidity, increased activity, and a propensity to perspire. Because of this, you should switch out your heavy winter moisturisers for something lighter that won't make the situation worse and encourage breakouts. To keep your skin feeling firm and smooth in the spring without clogging it or adding more oil, stick to lighter creams and serums.

    Skin Dry

    Your body is finally emerging from hibernation after a dry winter.
