5 reasons why your skin is acting up during transition from winter to spring

5 REASONS WHY YOUR SKIN IS ACTING UP DURING TRANSITION FROM WINTER TO SPRING

Winter is ready to take its vacation and, in the meanwhile, spring is ready to take its spotlight.

After months of cold, freezing weather, the sun is finally going to be the main character. Sounds like “sunshine and rainbows”, but your skin is thinking about something else. The spring is bringing its moisture back into the air and this means you should definitely switch some things up for your skin. Let’s dive right into the reasons why and some tips!

1. The high level of moisture in the air during spring
The transition of winter to spring brings its moisture back into the air. This means there is more humidity. Humidity causes the pores to open, it will be easier for dirt and oil to enter your skin. Also, it often breeds bacterial infections, and it could cause problems with your sweat glands, acne, infections, rashes, and other skin irritations.

An important tip is to keep your hands from your face. Your skin already has sweat on it, it doesn’t deserve more bacteria. Don’t forget to exfoliate 1-2 times a week.

2. Higher exposure to UV rays
The sun is shining brighter, and your skin will definitely be affected by it. The outer layer of the skin has cells that contain the pigment melanin. Melanin protects skin from the UV rays. These can burn the skin and reduce its elasticity, leading to premature aging and it can also cause skin cancer. Therefore you should always implement SPF into your routine.

Don’t forget to use a lot of SPF on your skin! A lot of people tend to use a little, while in this case, more is actually less. You may not like it, but your skin won’t get mad at you for doing it.

3. The more heat, the more sweat
Now that the winter to spring transition is arriving, you may go on walks more often or do more outdoor activities. Being more active means your skin will be more prone to sweating and breakouts. Even if you’re not outside for a long time, it can still clog your pores and cause breakouts.

Make sure to cleanse your face twice a day and take care of your skin. Also it’s really important to stay hydrated, so please don’t forget to drink water my friends! I am reminding you, because I tend to forget it myself 🙂

4. The increase of your skin’s natural oil production
The heat, humidity and sweat increases your oil production. You probably used a lot of moisturizers in the winter, but now that spring is here it won’t be necessary to use as much anymore. There will be enough moisture in the air for your skin to naturally produce oil. You can actually switch your thick moisturizer for a light one instead.

Instead of thick moisturizers, try out moisturizers with a gel formula like the Leave-me-on Autumn Mask. This mask is also great for oily dehydrated skin!

 If you’re not a big fan of gel moisturizers, you should definitely take a look at the Leave-me-on Spring Mask. This moisturizer is made for the transition from winter to spring, it’s super lightweight and contains SPF. Thank me later!

5. Allergies during spring
While some of us are excited and happy for spring, a lot of people are upset about the allergies that it brings them. You experience a runny nose, itchy or swollen eyes and it again causes your hands to come in contact with your face too often. This can cause your pores to clog, leading to break-outs.

Make sure to take your allergy medicine and shut all windows to keep out pollen. Use an air conditioner to cool your home instead of a fan, which draws in air from outside.
