What happens with your skin going into Spring?
In the winter, your skin suffered from the cold. The transition from winter to spring gives your skin a huge shock. The winter wind and changing temperatures due to indoor heating have taken their toll. It is very difficult for your skin to adapt to the increased humidity and warmer air.
Changing temperatures and dry air that are characteristic of the winter (cold outside, warm inside) do no good to the skin. When the temperatures rise in the spring and the humidity increases, it is a good time to pamper your skin differently.
Dry cold Winter-air VS moister sunny Spring-air.
Where the cold winter months can dry out your skin considerably, in the spring your skin will have to deal with moister air, more sun, and sweat. In the winter your skin prefers a thicker moisturizer for dry skin. But in the spring, it is wise to opt for lighter moisturizers.
Prevention is better than cure.
The spring sun seems soft and innocent, but harmful UV-lights damage your skin and can even burn your skin. That’s why we always advise avoiding the sun as much as possible. It’s is important to avoid the sun between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. The sun’s rays are strongest during this time.
Almost every website on this planet tells us to use SPF. But avoiding is step 1. For example, in Asia, it’s normal to see women wearing umbrellas. We are not asking you to be afraid but asking you to be cautious and aware.
Why SPF-10 and not SPF-30+?
We believe the cure (SPF) cannot be worse than the problem (=sun) itself. Sun protects SPF is great as a last resort to prevent your skin from the sun. But creating a high SPF (30+) with natural ingredients makes the moisturizer too thick for your skin. Your skin cannot “breathe” properly. This is exactly what we don’t want during spring! With a lightweight moisturizer like the Leave-me-on Spring Mask with SPF-10, your skin CAN breathe.
