People tend to experience changes in their skin when the weather changes. Cold, windy weather often results in dry skin and chapped lips. Warmer temperatures, especially with added humidity, usually  makes the skin oily. When this occurs, it’s important to switch up your  skin care routine!

If you have problems with dry skin in the winter seasons, do not use harsh products on your skin. Our products from the My Natural Beauty Skin Tone Line and Lemon Plus Vitamin C Skin Care Line are gentle, yet work effectively to treat dry skin. It’s best to limit exfoliating products during dry seasons as over cleansing can strip your skin of its natural oils. Use face washes that have creamier textures to keep your skin hydrated. Also, moisturize consistently with oils or lotions! Our Platinum Line Skin Beautifying Oil and Skin Beautifying Milk with SPF 15 work wonders on dry skin. These products help make the skin soft and smooth, while protecting it from harsh weather.
When the weather gets warmer, our skin often gets oilier. Pores open up when you sweat, causing dirt and bacteria to get trapped in the skin. It is important to exfoliate often to get rid of the excess build-up. Our Platinum Line Blemish Control Wash is effective in removing excess dirt and oil from the skin. Make sure to moisturize after, and apply SPF! If you’re looking for an SPF lotion that does not leave the skin feeling greasy like most sunscreens, try the My Natural Beauty Moisturizing Body Lotion w/ SPF 15. It protects the skin as it softens and hydrates.

No matter what the weather may be, always wear sunscreen. We cannot stress this enough. Rain or shine, UV rays will always be emitted into our atmosphere. Clouds often trap more UV rays than on a clear day. If you live in snowy conditions, note that UV rays bounce off of the snow. No matter what season, time, or location you may be in, always protect your skin from harmful UV rays.

Use these tips to make sure that you’re protecting and taking care of your skin in any kind of weather. In any season, it’s up to you to make sure that your best skin radiates through!
