As the seasons change so should our skincare routine. I don’t know about you, but I can tell when the weather is going to change by the appearance of my skin. In the colder months it is very dry and flaky and in the warmer months it becomes very oily and greasy, this is when I’m more prone to spot breakouts too and as a woman who is nearer 40 than 30, I can’t tell you how annoying this is especially as a teenager, my skin was really good and I rarely had any problems with spots at all.

To keep our skin looking and feeling its best we need to make sure we are giving it everything it needs. As the weather gets nicer and the temperatures start to rise there are a few things we can do to keep our skin feeling its best these include.

Using a cleanser

You should wash your face every day, first thing in the morning and last thing at night to remove impurities. Your skin is constantly covered by bacteria, pollution, viruses, dirt, and dead skin cells throughout the day. Using soap on your face is not great as it is often too harsh for your skin and can dry it out. Instead, you should opt to use a facial cleanser as it will gently remove the daily build-up of dirt, oils and grime. Always remove your makeup before going to bed on a night so that it doesn’t sit on your skin longer than needed.


Once you have washed your face you should moisturise. You may find that you need to moisturise less in the warmer weather or even swap to a lighter moisturiser than what you wear in the winter months. Apply your moisturiser before any sun cream or makeup.

You could consider a moisturise like Obagi Hydrate® Facial Moisturiser, a non-comedogenic facial moisturizer that provides instant and long-lasting hydration day or night. It is perfect for all skin types, is non-greasy and non-scented. Once you’ve applied the product it is absorbed really quickly unlike some other moisturisers – so much so you don’t even feel like you are wearing it. Personally, I think this is great as there is nothing worse than your skin feeling heavy or greasy for ages afterwards.

Use Sun Protection

You should always wear sun cream in the summer months. It should be applied after your moisturiser has been absorbed but before your makeup. If you wear foundation you might decide to wear one that contains an SPF so that you don’t need to add another layer of products to your skin. Wearing sun cream will stop you from burning, but it will also help your skin look younger for longer as believe it or not, the sun ages your skin quickly.

Keep Hydrated

It’s important to drink plenty of water during the warmer weather. Not only is it good for you and keeps you healthy and hydrated but it helps keep your skin looking and feeling healthy too.
