The most important thing when it comes to taking care of your skin is moisture. During warmer months like July and August, the humidity level goes as high as 80%, sometimes more. However, in September and October, the humidity level plummeted to less than 60%
The skin’s original moisture content is 15-20%, but during seasonal transition, our moisture level drops to lower than 10%
If the skin’s moisture level drops, the skin’s elasticity will greatly decrease which will cause wrinkles. Therefore, the best way to preserve moisture is by applying moisturizing products no later than 3 minutes after washing your face. This way, your skin retains moisture better.
As the temperature drops, due to the cold and dry climate, we no longer sweat as much and our skin produces much less sebum, which eventually causes the dead skin cells to form.
Using soft steamed towel, remove the dead skin cells and cleanse the skin with lukewarm water and gentle cleanser.
Try to cleanse your face according to your skin type, it is advised not to wash your face too often or use hot water. In order to maximize dead skin cell removal, try to repeat this process 2-3 times a week.
During seasonal change, we should also make sure that we protect our skin from ultraviolet ray in order to keep our skin clean.
When protecting our skin from the UV ray, an SPF of 15 or more is the basic requirement and if we are going outdoor, we need to apply SPF 30 an hour before going out.
If you have problems with pigmentation and freckles, using a brightening product will help this problem.
