Seasonal skincare helps maintain healthy, glowing, nurtured skin all year round, and Terre Verdi is here to explain how to switch from cold weather rituals to a summer ready routine! Learn how the weather affects your face and body, and discover how to easily change over your products without any fuss...
Sticking to tried and true products is great for maintaining happy skin, but sometimes change is healthy too. When the seasons switch, so do the needs of your skin. It makes sense to adapt your routine to ensure your face and body are receiving the care they need all year round. That's why Terre Verdi is here to talk about seasonal skincare in today's special post!
Seasonal skincare is not just some new fad – it's an important way to find balance and keep a radiant and nourished complexion no matter the weather. In fact, studies show that environmental factors like sunshine, temperature, and humidity all have a visible effect on your skin. From excess oil production to uneven texture, the time of year can really change the performance and appearance of your skin!
How To Change Your Skincare Routine
As soon as the weather begins to fluctuate, you should consider changing up your routine. You want to swap out your products and begin your new seasonal ritual before any visible changes can actually be seen. This will make the switch much easier and more natural for your face and body. As soon as there are ongoing dips or spikes in the temperature, humidity, or sunshine hours, it's time to think about transitioning to a new routine.
Don't worry – the process is pretty simple too! As a new season approaches, slowly replace your products for those with more appropriate formulations. Don't do this all at once though, as this can cause your skin to become irritated by the abrupt difference. Go one treatment at a time, and don’t forget to enjoy the process of introducing new oils, balms, or serums into your seasonal skincare routine!
Summer Skincare Routine
We’re entering the final stretch of spring and heading to summer, meaning the warm and bright days are finally upon us! This means it is time to transition to products that offer hydration, moisture, and a soothing touch. The skin appreciates lighter formulations during these sunny months, as the shift in temperature and light creates a new environment for your microbiome.
Your face and body will begin to experience increased sun damage which can make these areas feel tight or inflamed, the dry air may leave skin parched and thirsty and the heat can result in excess oil production that makes you look shiny and even spotty. For these reasons, it’s essential that you adapt your routine to maintain a clear and smooth complexion.
Focus on using lightweight products that are replenishing and calming. This means it is time to swap out those heavy rich creams and balms for something new. You can opt for ingredients that are similar to natural sebum like jojoba as well as those that will not clog pores such as camellia. Remember to fully cleanse your skin at the end of each day too, as you want to make sure there is no sweat, SPF, or daily build up remaining since this can lead to breakouts. Cleansing will reset your face and body, and it is a great way to reset your skin!
Terre Verdi’s multi-tasking Good Oils Cleansing Oil is a perfect choice for summer as the antioxidant rich white tea oil works against free radicals and helps reduce inflammation. Our NeroliPom Moisturiser is also a great option to introduce, as it offers nourishment without weighing down the skin plus helps repair environmental damage. You can even add in a weekly scrub with our CocoaBamboo Exfoliating Treatment ClayMask to ensure everything remains soft, smooth, and radiant for the entire season.
