The summer winds down, the weather get cooler, and as the leaves slowly start turning – so do you! Those strappy, summery, floral dresses get back into the closet and the light knits, smart coats, cardigans and sweaters come out. Let’s not forget those boots too!
Likewise, your skin’s changing with the weather too. A sweaty, greasy face gives way to a drier skin texture, thanks to dipping temperatures, internal heating and changes in humidity. A total turnover in the seasonal eats also makes a difference!
I love the rains! After a long hot summer it is a welcome relief when the skies open up to cool off the parched earth. I only wish the wet season would be as skin friendly. Unfortunately for me, and a lot many others like me, our skin doesn’t seem to share the same fervor for the rains. The high humidity levels give bacteria and other infections the perfect breeding ground. This is what aggravates problems like acne and exposes you to a host of fungal infections such as red, itchy, blotchy or flaky irritated skin. So what do we need to do to stay skin happy this rainy season? Read on to find out.
