How Spring Affects Your Skin and Face
Once we get to the end of February, most of us have complete spring fever and are ready for warmer weather and to throw off our winter coats. Spring means fresh air, sunnier days, and more time to get outside and enjoy what Mother Nature has to offer. It can also mean changes to our skin and face...resulting in unwanted blemishes, acne, and dull skin.
Environment is Everything
Because you are outside enjoying the great outdoors, your skin is now being exposed to the sun, wind, rain and other elements you were able to avoid when you were sitting inside cuddled in your blankets. A good skin care regimen is the best way to care for your skin when you are getting outside and exercising, playing games, and enjoying weekend BBQs. It’s important to take stock of your face and skin each day and determine the best course of action to prevent unwanted issues like sun burn, acne, and dry skin outbreaks.
Spring Time Skin Problems and Prevention
Sunburn – It may seem pretty obvious, but sunburn is a real threat during the warmer months because we are shedding layers of clothing and exposing our skin to greater levels of UV rays. There are three different types of sunburn, each offering varying degrees of damage to our skin and health. Sunburn is the result of the sun literally burning away layers of skin, often with a painful result that can take weeks to heal. It’s important to check the weather and prepare your skin before you leave the house, including using Porcelana’s day cream with SPF included to protect your face and neck from the sun’s harsh rays.
Acne – You’re getting outside and working out, meeting up with friends for a BBQ and pool party, or taking your kids out to the park on the weekends. Suddenly you notice that blemishes and acne are cropping up and you don’t know how to stop them. Because we are exposing our face and skin to the sun and other elements, we begin producing more oils that can clog our pores and cause unwanted skin problems. It’s important to have a good skin care regime that includes daily cleansing and using Porcelana’s day and night creams to provide additional vitamins and nutrients to help restore your skin’s health.
Psoriasis and Eczema – Dry skin can be pretty embarrassing, especially when it shows up just when you are ready to take off those extra sweaters and winter coats. Psoriasis and eczema are actually very common skin conditions, but they can be exacerbated by changing spring time weather conditions. It’s important to care for your skin and face by moisturizing properly and using Porcelana’s day and night cream formulas to add extra nutrients and moisture so your skin is protected and can repair itself day or night.
