Seasonal changes spell not-so-fun changes for the skin, and we’re not just talking about winter here. These changes happen year round— when summer is near, when winter melts into spring, and throughout other transitions.
Year-Round Skin Care with Rhassoul Clay
From rhassoul clay masks to exfoliation, here are some ways to weather-proof your skin and keep it glowing and fresh all year long!
- Let’s talk about cleanser.
If you’re using the typical foaming type, you may be stripping your skin of essential oils that help fight off dry skin. Aside from washing away dirt, the right cleanser should also get rid of oil, help remove makeup, and simultaneously nourish and hydrate your skin.
Try looking for a cleanser that has grapeseed oil to maximize comfort especially during the dry months while balancing out oil production.
- Set an exfoliation schedule.
If you think dead skin is no big deal, wait until it starts triggering breakouts. Along with excess oil, pollutants, and dirt, dead skin build up are guilty of these annoying blackheads and whiteheads. If exfoliation is not a part of your skin care routine yet, then you should start ASAP to prevent your cores from clogging up and resulting in more issues.
If you’re new to exfoliation, you can start with lactic acid peels. These are so gentle, people who have sensitive skin types can even use them. As you get used to exfoliating, you can move up to stronger chemical peels that contain glycolic acid. For best results, use it around once a week no matter the season.
- Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize.
This is a rule that applies to all skin types no matter the weather— moisturized skin is healthy skin. This is especially true right after your exfoliation sessions. Once all those unwanted elements are stripped away from your skin, nourish the fresh layer with a potent moisturizer, preferably one with hyaluronic acid for more effective binding of the moisturizer to the skin.
On the rest of the days when you don’t exfoliate, make sure to moisturize at least day and night. Don’t forget a skin-friendly sunblock as well. Together, they’ll help you prevent wrinkles and lines while keeping your skin supple and soft to the touch.
- Stock up on treatment masks.
Does it feel too cold to go to the store, or is it too hot to walk outside? Create a spa day right in your home by having a steady supply of treatment masks. Always keep some rhassoul hydrating masks, activated charcoal masks, and pumpkin glycolic masks so you can give your skin loads of love whether there’s a blizzard outside your window or the scorching sun means pulling down the shades all day.
Enriched with ingredients like healing aloe, fruit extracts, milk lipids, and hyaluronic acid, these masks offer numerous skin benefits. Just leave them on for 10 minutes, and feel it start detoxifying, renewing, hydrating, and evening out your skin.Keep this checklist in mind to maintain the best skin no matter the season.
