No matter where you live, seasons change…We all want our skin to be beautiful and radiant, so making sure we keep up with our skincare routine is vital. Many people notice that their skin may experience dryness, become oily, or itchy as the weather changes but will continue to use the same products. Maybe your skin is low-key telling you it needs more or less! 🤔
The temperature has fallen, and it is time to break out the coats, sweaters, and scarves. Or…on the African continent, the harmattan season has set in and it is dry and dusty outside.
Yikes! Around this time, you may notice that your skin tends to get a little dry, maybe even irritated. But…just because you may not see the sun as much, do not be so quick to put your sunscreen away with your swimsuit. No matter the season, or where you live, you still need to protect your skin from UV rays year round! Check out Black Girl Sunscreen.
You should also add richer moisturiser to your skin during the autumn and winter months since the cold/ dusty air can make your skin dry. R&R Luxury’s Baobab Oil offers your skin the richness and protection it needs for moisture when it is cold outside. This ultra-moisturising oil contains vitamins, omega fatty acids, and antioxidants that will properly nourish your skin. Though it is ultra-moisturising, it absorbs into your skin quickly, giving it a silky texture.
Exfoliating your skin should become second nature during the colder months to get rid of dead, dry skin cells. R&R Luxury created a facial scrub that also moisturises your skin at the same time! Again… the key to healthy skin during the winter months is MOISTURISING. This Shea Sugar Scrub comes in two luxurious scents, lemongrass, and lavender, and removes dead skin cells while nourishing your skin. You may be thinking to yourself that scrubbing your face maybe a little too harsh. However, the sugar grains are gentle for all skin types and eliminates dull-looking skin.
No matter the season, the best skincare routines for all skin types start from drinking plenty of water and staying committed to your regime. Learn your skin type and have patience with the process. Remember, practice makes for perfect glowing skin!
