Many of us fail to realize that sometimes, the weather can take a massive toll on our bodies and our health. To ensure that we stay on top all year round, its important to take into consideration how temperatures and seasonal changes affect the way we look and feel. Heres a short guide to help you stave off the ugly while transitioning from one season to another.
Summer – Ah, this is the perfect time to hit the beach and get a lovely tan. However, the sun can be as cruel as it can be friendly. Make sure to lather an ample amount of sunscreen before heading out to the water, to prevent skin damage from the suns UV rays. The higher the SPF, the safer youre bound to be.
Spring As the flowers bloom and the birds sing of a new beginning, so should you! Exfoliation is important during spring, to bring out a fitting glow that departs from the usual dull complexion brought about by winter. Make sure to use skin lotions as well, but opt for lighter creams (preferably oil-free) that provide adequate moisture but not more than what your skin needs.
Winter Low temperatures can be harsh on your hair and skin, so winter is probably the best season to really pack on the moisturizers. Some lotions and creams that promise intensive moisture might end up feeling greasy and cloggy, so make sure to choose the right kind that suits your skin type. Moreover, if youre not a fan of drinking green tea, winter is probably a good time to catch up on this healthy habitthe warmth of green tea will be easier to get used to during the cold season, and may potentially kick start a better diet plan. Also, dont forget to drink enough water to keep your skin, your lips and your internal organs sufficiently hydrated.
Fall Right before winter sets in, you might start to feel whats about to come during the cold season. If you arent big on moisturizers, now might be the perfect time to find a lotion or cream you can stick to. Also make sure that youre observing a balanced, healthy diet and exercise on a regular basis; you wouldnt want to turn dull and crackly like leaves falling off trees, do you?
