The sunshine and long days of summer can be soothing to the soul, but not necessarily good for your skin. Then, when the first signs of autumn arrive, such as cool winds and moist, chilly air, the skin is impacted by the change of season. Typically, this can result in clogged pores and the skin appearing rough, dry and dull. During the summer, the skin produces excess sebum, which can lead to unpleasant skin impurities in the fall – especially in the so-called T-zone: forehead, nose and chin. In addition, the skin’s metabolism becomes more sluggish, thereby hampering its ability to eliminate toxins and maintain a healthy balance.
Even more detrimental to the skin, however, is the rapid depletion of moisture deposits during autumn. Cold air outdoors and, in particular, heated spaces indoors have a dehydrating effect that can leave your skin rough and chapped, somewhat like a dried out sponge.
Thin skin, such as in the area around the eyes, is especially susceptible to dryness due to the loss of lipids (fats that protect the skin) and this is a particular concern after extended exposure to the summer sun. As for the sensitive cheek area, it is frequently where the first signs of erythema appear, a reddening of the skin due to expanded capillaries. So, if you experience “red cheeks” it could be an early indication of this condition!
As you can see, autumn (and winter) can place quite a strain even on younger skin up to the age of 30. The best protection is a high-quality skin care regimen to help maintain your skin’s natural beauty and radiance over the long run!
