How Climate Changes Can Affect The Skin?

From warm summers to icy, sometimes snowy, cold winter as the weather changes most of us notice the changes of our skin as well. A shift from dry to oily feeling, increase in skin flare ups and breakouts are common experiences. Seasonal changes bring with them a lot of environmental changes as well. Along with temperature shifts, humidity levels also fluctuate. All these changes do have an impact on skin, particularly for those who have sensitive skin.


With summer, some people tend to experience skin irritation or acne. As hot weather induces sweating, bacterial growth may also result in bad smell and rashes on sensitive areas. Here are some suggestions from experts:


Change your skincare routine

While, a good cleansing, toning and moisturising routine must to be followed round the year, an important thing to do is to modify your skincare products as the weather changes occur. So, shifting to lighter non-comedogenic products is the first thing to do as we transition into the summer. If you have been using a cream-based face-wash or moisturiser, now is the time to switch to water-based light formulations

Consider some skin procedures

If you have been considering a skin procedure, a seasonal shift is perhaps the appropriate time to undertake it. Not only will it pave the way for a dermatologist visit, it will also help prepare your skin better against the sudden trauma of weather change.

A dermatologist will examine your skin in-depth and help you make an informed decision of which skin procedure you need. If your skin is experiencing dryness, flakiness and signs of ageing are troubling you, you may consider a hyaluronic acid-based treatment such as Profhilo. Similarly, if you are experiencing oiliness and clogged pores, exfoliating and deep cleansing procedures such as hybradermabrasion and carbon peels may help
