When establishing facial care routines and ensuring the well-being of the face, everything related to the skin type is taken into account, what its needs are and what problematic tendencies it presents. For example, acne or the appearance of spots. However, one of the fundamental variables in designing a skincare routine often tends to be forgotten: the weather.
The conditions of the winter season and the summer season are very different, as well as the way in which they affect the skin. Therefore, regardless of the type of skin, it will see its needs slightly altered in one season or another. And, during the current summer months, there is no doubt that the heat has a great impact on the skin.
Sweat, segregation of fat and congestion of the skin represent the main problems that heat brings with it and that have a considerable impact on the health and well-being of the face. As well as in its appearance from the most aesthetic point of view. Therefore, the action of heat means that certain precautions and special care must be taken during the winter season, so that the skin is not harmed.
One of the most important aspects has to do with cleanliness. The remains of sweat and grease caused by heat accumulate on the face, along with toxins, dead skin and dirt in general. To prevent this from clogging the pores and negatively affecting the health of the skin, it will be essential to maintain proper hygiene. This will consist of washing the face with a cleansing product morning and night. However, it is also recommended, throughout the day, to remove sweat from the face with cool water. This will help keep the face deflated, another effect of the heat.
You have to hydrate the skin, one of the big mistakes during the summer is precisely not doing it. Moisturizing cream will always be applied at the end of each of the two daily facial care routines. What you have to take into account is its texture. In addition to using a suitable cream for each skin type, during the hot season one should be applied that is lighter and easier to absorb. Do not forget to hydrate the body from within by ingesting adequate amounts of fluids each day.
Sunscreen will always be a great ally against the heat, as it will protect the face from the action of the sun's rays and help it preserve its hydration. In this way, stains, burns and irritations to which one is exposed by heat are avoided. In addition to combating oxidative stress, the cause of facial aging.
