in terms of skincare
Switching up your routine with the season can seem challenging.
Depending on where you live, you may not need to change your routine at all! The rule of thumb to follow is that if your wardrobe changes with the season, so should your skincare routine. People living in climates that don't change throughout the year will experience less transition than those who experience hot summers and cold winters.
CHANGE YOUR ROUTINE with YOUR WARDROBE
The easiest way to think about changing your skincare routine with seasonal change is to compare it to your wardrobe. As you add layers and thicker clothing to your style, your skincare routine should follow suit.
HOW SKINCARE CHANGES WITH THE SEASON
The four seasons can bring drastically different weather for certain parts of the world. In the summer, we tend towards minimal, lightweight and breathable clothing with an emphasis on sun protection. As we head into fall, start incorporating thicker, cream-based products with your thinner serums to help the skin barrier transition to colder climate.

OTHER SEASONAL SKINCARE TIPS
Don't Over Exfoliate: In winter, opt for gentler exfoliation to avoid stripping away essential oils. In summer, consider using exfoliating products more frequently to help prevent clogged pores.
Adjust Frequency: Depending on the season, you might need to adjust how often you use certain products. For instance, you might use a heavier moisturizer more frequently in winter, but scale back in summer.
Be Mindful of Hot Showers: Hot showers can be soothing, but they can also strip your skin of its natural oils. Use lukewarm water and limit your shower time, especially in the colder months
Consult a Professional: If you're unsure about the right adjustments for your skincare routine, consider consulting a dermatologist. They can provide personalized recommendations based on your skin type, concerns, and the climate you're in.
SKINCARE IN THE FALL MEANS RETINOL
