In order to help you prepare for your skin's changing ways, we enlisted Dr. Rosemarie Ingleton, dermatologist and Eucerin Skin First Council member, to help uncover the do's and dont's of spring cleaning your beauty routine.
Understand Why Your Skin is Changing
The reasons why our skin care needs differ in the warmer weather can be attributed to the increased amount of moisture in the air and more frequent exposure to direct sun. “Our skin is responding to the environment,” says Dr. Rosemarie Ingleton, founder of Ingleton Dermatology in New York City and member of the Eucerin Skin First Council. “When the weather warms up, the humidity balance is switching, so you’re going to get higher temperatures and more moisture in the air. People with oily skin are really going to struggle with not looking so oily and people who have dry skin will probably become more normal.”
