A Basic Guide to Trans-Seasonal Skincare

Taking care of your skin is a year-round commitment. As the season shifts, your skin’s needs may change as well. As such, you may need to adjust your skincare routine to be trans-seasonal. It entails switching out your skincare products to suit the shift in weather conditions. For example, you may replace your creamier facial cleanser with a hydrating one for the summer. It can also involve adding an extra step to your skincare routine, like using a vegan facial mask, which we offer at BéLagu Naturals.

If you want your skin to keep looking vibrant and well-nourished regardless of the season, having a trans-seasonal skincare routine could be the solution. Here are some tips to get your skin covered for any weather.

Identify Your Skin Type

Before diving into the specific steps of trans-seasonal skincare, identify your skin type first. It will be the basis for how you build your new routine. Start by looking for signs of whether you have oily, dry, combination, or sensitive skin. 

Does your skin tend to get oily and greasy quickly? Then, you most likely have an oily skin type. If you usually have parched and flaky skin, it’s probably dry. If parts of your face, like your forehead and nose areas, are more likely to get shiny while your cheeks don't, you might have combination skin. 

Adapt to Your Skin's Seasonal Needs

Knowing your skin type is one thing, and understanding how the changing seasons can affect your skin is another. Each season presents different skin issues to address. 

  • In spring, the temperature usually fluctuates, and humidity levels rise. When this happens, your skin produces more oil that could lead to clogged pores and breakouts. Also, the humidity can make your skin sticky and prone to excess shine. 

Keep oiliness at bay by switching to a lightweight, oil-free moisturizer. That will help keep your skin hydrated without making it greasy. Consider introducing antioxidants into your skincare routine during this season. Serums with ingredients like vitamin C can help protect your skin from free radical damage and boost its overall radiance.

Although the weather may be milder than in summer, UV rays must still be your concern. Harmful UV rays can still come through clouds and could cause premature aging and hyperpigmentation. Remember to apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 daily. 

  • During summer, heat and humidity are at their peak. That means you’re more exposed to UV rays and likely to sweat a lot. It also makes your skin more prone to excess oil, sweat-related breakouts, and sunburn. 

To help avoid breakouts, opt for a cleanser that removes dirt and oil without overdrying your skin. Gel-based or oil-free cleansers are the perfect choices for this. Also, use a lightweight, non-comedogenic moisturizer; it can effectively lock in moisture on your skin without clogging your pores. 

Don't forget to apply and reapply sun protection on your skin since you’ll probably be doing some outdoor activities in the summer.

  • In the fall, the temperature drops, and the air becomes drier. These changes can also affect your skin. They can make your skin dry, sensitive, and prone to irritation. 

Before your skin even experiences these effects, address them right away. Combat the dryness associated with fall by switching to a richer, more emollient moisturizer. That will help lock in moisture and prevent dry, flaky skin. Consider using facial oils at night for extra hydration. You may add a drop of rosehip or jojoba oil to your moisturizer for a more hydrating result. 

Maximize the cold season to heal your skin from the sun’s damage during summer. For example, use products with vitamin C to reduce the appearance of pigments from prolonged exposure to the sun. Additionally, fall is the perfect time to incorporate actives like retinol. 

Due to the lack of sun and lower temperature, your skin might not be as sensitive after applying retinol. It's ideal to alternate using Vitamin C and retinol on your skin. More importantly, continue applying sunscreen even though it’s not as warm or sunny as in the summer.

  • The winter season means the air is colder and dryer, which isn’t good for the skin. It can leave your skin feeling dry and prone to irritation. It can also make your skin more sensitive. Transition to a thicker, more emollient moisturizer, as this will create a protective barrier on your skin and lock in much-needed moisture during the cold winter months. 

In terms of facial cleaners, avoid harsh products. They can strip your skin of its natural oils, which you need during the season. Instead, opt for gentle, hydrating cleansers to soothe and nourish your skin. 

Consider incorporating skincare products that provide extra hydration during winter. Use a hydrating face mask once a week to address the drying effects of the winter air. You may also use products that contain hyaluronic acid or ceramides, as these ingredients can help replenish your skin's barrier.

Use a Versatile Product for All Seasons

While having a specific skincare regimen for every season is the core of trans-seasonal skincare, certain skincare products are suitable throughout the entire year. Hyaluronic acid serums provide hydration that’s beneficial no matter the season. 

In spring, hyaluronic acid serum can provide balanced hydration. It helps keep your skin moisturized without feeling heavy or greasy. It also has a lightweight and non-greasy texture that’s perfect for summer. 

Products with hyaluronic acid aren’t just great to use when the temperature rises. They’re just as helpful during the colder months. They can reduce dryness and maintain skin moisture because the ingredient is a humectant. That means it effectively pulls moisture from the environment into your skin, leaving your skin feeling hydrated. 

Achieving radiant, healthy skin all year round is possible when you embrace trans-seasonal skincare. It’s all about adjusting your skincare routine to match your specific skin’s needs as the season changes and, at the same time, picking timeless products that can work from one season to the next. For best results, consult a dermatologist to ensure your regimen is tailor-fitted for you throughout the year.
