Changes in seasons also create changes in your skin requirements. Therefore, to maintain young-looking, healthy skin, it’s essential to observe how your skin adapts to weather factors. For example, during the winter, most people’s skin easily becomes dry, itchy, and tight because cold air depletes the skin surface’s moisture. Over the summer, on the other hand, most people complain of breakouts because the heat triggers overproduction of sebum.
Meanwhile, spring for many is the season of allergies due to pollen in the air; your skin also becomes hyper-sensitive. As for fall, the transition from warm to chilly has the tendency to create combination skin – skin with patches of dryness and oiliness. Therefore, the key here is to assess your skin carefully and determine which products are appropriate to use given its inherent and current condition.
Whether you’re using synthetic or organic skin care and makeup products, it’s imperative to switch them up to see what will currently perform best for your skin.

Study the ingredients of the products you use and see if there are some which can be counterproductive given your present skin type. Likewise, evaluate your skincare routine and see which steps are unnecessary or should be added to address your current skin woes.
A healthy, organic skincare routine is based on understanding the skin’s frequently changing condition; in fact, you don’t even need to wait for the turnover of seasons because the moment you see changes in your skin, it’s important to immediately determine what’s causing them so you can implement an effective skin care program to counter the effects.
And don’t be fooled into thinking that it’s just the products you pile onto your skin that need to be switched up to fight your issues; maintaining healthy skin is also about diet and lifestyle changes. Your overall health has a direct impact on your skin’s condition.
Eat nutritious “skin” food, engage in exercise, get enough hours of sleep, drink more water, stay away from alcoholic beverages (which can actually deplete skin’s elasticity), stop smoking – all these are organic changes you can implement that will do wonders for your skin!
And since you’re already going organic with your routine, making a switch to all-natural products will surely have an even more positive effect on your skin.
The advantage with an organic skin care routine is you’re not introducing synthetic ingredients which are completely alien to your body, and which it still needs to learn to accommodate; you’re using naturally occurring ingredients to boost your skin which have minimal side effects, if any, compared to chemical-laden products.
People usually do not have a negative reaction from skin care products made from ingredients they can actually eat such as [easyazon_link identifier=”B0105T6QXK” locale=”US” nw=”y” nf=”y” tag=”freshfaceclub-20″ cart=”y” cloak=”y” localize=”y” popups=”y”]aloe vera[/easyazon_link], cranberries, [easyazon_link identifier=”B004VMVJ9Y” locale=”US” nw=”y” nf=”y” tag=”freshfaceclub-20″ cart=”y” cloak=”y” localize=”y” popups=”y”]pomegranates[/easyazon_link], apples, snail slime, etc. Therefore, transitioning from one organic product to a different one to accommodate skin changes due to seasons or other factors can actually be safer and more effective.
All in all, understanding your skin’s requirements, plus identifying what you need in order to meet these, is the best thing to do to ensure good-looking, healthy skin through the changing seasons and and any other factors you may encounter – there’s simply no going wrong with this equation!
