‘I’m a Dermatologist, and These Are the Skin-Care Swaps I’m Begging You To Make Between Now and June’
All signs point to the fact that spring is right around the corner. The days are getting longer and warm weather is snuggling into the forecast, which means that not only is it time to take your jean shorts out of storage, but it’s also time to change up your skin-care routine.
During the winter months, the lack of humidity in the air makes skin drier than it normally is during other times of the year. But once the cold starts to thaw, your skin kicks into high gear to start to normalize its own natural moisturizing factors.
Though skin dryness may be yesterday’s news once spring hits, there’s another subset of skin issues that tend to pop up when temperatures rise above 60 degrees. “As the humidity rises, it can lead to increased oil production and clogging,” says Michele Farber, MD, a board-certified dermatologist with Schweiger Dermatology Group in Philadelphia. “With stronger sun, there is also an increased risk of UV damage, pigment changes, and photoaging—not to mention [a higher] skin cancer risk without proper sun protection.”
