After a long, cold winter we all long for the warmth of spring. Unfortunately, weather changes from cold to warm come with their own challenges. An estimated 235 million people suffer from allergies each year, but it isn’t just your lungs that can suffer during the changing seasons – so can your skin. Changes in temperature, pollen levels, humidity, and sun exposure during the spring can wreak havoc on your skin, triggering irritation and breakouts, all while aggravating existing skin problems.
Learn what’s actually happening to your skin through the changing weather and how you can ease it through the transition with Décaar at-home products.
How Does Spring Weather Affect Your Skin?
Spring weather can be just as volatile as winter, going back and forth from beautiful sunny days to harsh downpours with blowing wind. On those sunny days, you want to spend as much time outside as possible but more time outside means more UV exposure. This can be particularly damaging to your skin if you haven’t quite transitioned out of the habit of bundling up, trying to cover every bit of exposed skin to keep out the cold.
Fluctuations in spring temperatures can lead to problems as well. When the sun’s out and you find yourself enjoying the warm weather, you may relish the opportunity to finally get out and go for a run or a hike. Being more active often means more sweat than your body’s been used to for the past few months and that can lead to clogged pores and breakouts. The combination of increased exercise, more sweating, and increased humidity in the air may also increase your skin’s oil production which can further exacerbate these and other existing skin challenges.
Of course, in all this talk about the unexpected challenges that come with the spring season, we would be remiss if we didn’t mention allergies. If you suffer from allergies, you’ll find yourself dealing with everything from itchy eyes to a runny nose which means your hands are going to encounter your face a lot. When that happens, bacteria and dirt can easily transfer to your skin where they can contribute to any number of skin problems.
While spring has its share of skin obstacles to avoid, there are precautions you can take to keep your youthful glow going.
