If you live in a temperate climate, you probably know all too well that you have to refresh your wardrobe every season (unless you’re okay with wearing an overcoat in the summer). Come fall, you start putting your shorts away to make room for leather jackets, boots, and knits; come summer, and those knits make way for sandals, sunnies, and sundresses. If you do all that for your wardrobe, doesn’t it make sense to do the same for your skin?
It’s important to switch up our masks, cleansers, and serums with the seasons, and opt for lightweight, glow-inducing formulas as opposed to the heavy hydration we seek in colder months. It’s imperative to upgrade your basics come summertime — and that includes moisturizer. No matter what your skin type, you should opt for a lighter moisturizer for the warmer months. This is to combat seasonal skincare concerns, including oiliness, sun spots, and those pesky dry patches that never seem to go away.
