Keeping up with your anti-aging regimen is important to do year round. But did you know that you may have to switch the type of products you use according to the season? For example, you may have to stop retinoids in the winter if you have dry skin and in this case, you may need to stop your heavy night cream during the summer if your skin is becoming too oily. Just like a wardrobe change for every season, your skin requires the same changes!
My skin tends to become oiler during the summer but this doesn’t mean that I should stop moisturizing completely. Even during hot weather, our skin can become dehydrated which leads to more oil production to compensate for the moisture loss. This is especially true as your skin starts to age.
One of the products I switch to every summer is Oil-Free Réparatif Lotion. Like its heavier cream sibling (Réparatif Bio-Cream), this formula is packed with potent antiaging ingredients in a lighter and oil-free lotion. I am still getting all the antiaging benefits without the heaviness I usually need during the colder, drier weather. Anyone can use this product but I especially recommend it to oilier skin types as well as acne-proned skin. It is also a favorite among men!
Remember that as temperatures begin to rise, your anti-aging regimen may need a little tweaking to adjust to your changing skin. Your skin will thank you for it!
