Worried About Your Skincare Over The Seasons? Here’s The Solution!

While summer's golden hours and winter's chilly evenings are cherished by many, our skin often bears the brunt of these seasonal transitions, suffering from sunburn, dryness, irritation, and whatnot. But don't worry; we know how to help your skin survive and thrive throughout the year, i.e., seasonal skincare!

In this blog post, we'll talk about much-needed seasonal skincare and reveal the secrets to keeping your skin healthy and radiant, no matter the weather. Further, don’t forget to check the additional tips at the end. So, if you're ready to learn how to pamper your skin through every season, read on.

Seasonal Skincare: What's The Necessity?

Our skin goes through a lot of changes while embracing the seasonal transitions. You would have experienced common skin concerns like acne, darkening, excessive oil, inflammation, and dryness. But have you ever wondered why that happens?

Here's an answer: while the year keeps shifting towards coldness, our skin also loses its moisture. Further, it reacts to temperature changes, humidity, and prolonged UV exposures, changing pH levels.


So, what do we do about all these problems, or how do we cure them? Simple: by opting for an effective skincare! However, as each season is different and affects your skin differently, you've got to make several changes in your seasonal routines. To help you with that, we've listed the seasonal routines you can follow in the next sections. 

Skincare Routine For Autumn

Autumn is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful seasons. The falling leaves, slightly cold air, and the early excitement of winter - such factors make this one simply unforgettable. But amidst all this, your skin often experiences dryness, irritation, and severe eczema.

So, to maintain your skin's moisture and nourishment subtly during this season, here's a skincare routine:

  • Cleansing

Begin your routine with a gentle cleanser to eliminate the impurities. Further, make sure your chosen cleanser doesn't strip your skin of its natural oils.

  • Moisturising

As the air gets drier, it's time to step up your moisturising game. So, opt for a slightly richer moisturiser to offer your skin the extra hydration it craves.

  • Sun Protection

Despite the slight coldness in the air, UV rays are still present; thus, protecting your skin is essential. So, keep applying sunscreen to protect your skin from sun damage.

Skincare Routine For Winter

Though Winter has the same drying effect on our skin, it doesn't show any mercy, leaving you with chapped lips, chronic skin conditions, and extra coldness. Likewise, our goal of locking in the moisturiser follows with another one, i.e., protecting yourself from the excessive indoor heat. Thus, as the season follows the same 'attacking your moisture' mantra, here's what to do;

  • Cleansing

Since the winter season also leads to indoor heating, you'll need a hydrating cleanser to combat the drying effects.

  • Moisturising

Again, you'll need extra moisturising care to reduce the chances of winter dryness. So, opt for a moisturiser enriched with niacinamide and vitamin E to lock in moisture and repair your skin while you sleep. 

  • Lip Care

Chapped lips are another recurring problem in extreme winters. So, while doubling the moisture, keep your lips hydrated with a balm. You can also use an SPF for extra protection on your lips when going out.

  • Sun Protection

Continue using sunscreen, even if you reside in snowy areas, as it will protect you from reflected UV rays.

Skincare Routine For Spring

As flowers bloom once the winter leaves, your skin also gets a chance to glow as new. But you would want to make up the most for all the moisture lost. However, considering Pakistan's climate, even spring can affect your skin with sun exposure, rise in humidity, and sweat, leading to clogged pores and oily surfaces.

So, for an effective cleansing and protection from heat waves, here's what to do with your skincare routine;

  • Cleansing

Despite the transition, your skin will still be affected by winter dryness, so start your day with a gentle, hydrating cleanser to remove the build-up.

  • Toning

Since you'd need to repair the skin damage within, try adding a nourishing facial toner to your routine. Further, such a toner will remove dead cells subtly while enhancing your skin's natural radiance.

  • Moisturising

As the weather may get warm gradually and cause sweating, you can try a lightweight and hydrating moisturiser instead.

  • Exfoliating

Include a gentle exfoliation step with a harmless chemical exfoliant to remove dead skin cells and reveal a fresh complexion. Don't overdo it, as over-exfoliating can be harsh on the skin. Further, it's best to exfoliate your skin once a week.

  • Sun Protection

Considering the rise in the temperature, start using a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30. Though spring is less warm than summer, the heat can still damage your skin intensely.

Skincare Routine For Summer

While summer's different in other countries, it's no less than a nightmare for Pakistan's residents. For example, scorching heat exposures, constant sweat, and elevated humidity usually lead to acne, enlarged pores, skin discolouration, inflammation, and even dehydration.

So, how do we tackle the above-stated problems and let our skin still shine (without oil)? Let's see the changes you can make to your routine now;

  • Cleansing

Continue with a gentle cleanser containing titanium dioxide to remove dirt, oil, sunscreen, and makeup. Though cleansing twice a day is usually recommended, you can do it more often if you feel sweaty and sticky.

  • Exfoliating

Use a mild chemical exfoliant to remove dead skin cells, unclog pores, and improve skin texture. Though don’t exfoliate your skin much, as it can make it more sensitive to sun.

  • Toning

Apply a hydrating and alcohol-free toner to balance your skin's pH levels. Ingredients like hyaluronic acid, rosewater, or cucumber extract can be soothing and refreshing.

  • Moisturising

Despite the increased humidity, never skip the chance to keep your skin moisturised. So, use a lightweight moisturiser that's suitable for your skin type. Gel-based or oil-free moisturisers are great for summer, as they won't make your skin feel heavy or greasy.

  • Sun Protection

As summers in Pakistan are harsh, direct exposure to sun rays can cause severe sun damage. So, apply a moisturising sunscreen generously every two hours throughout the day. You can also consider a hat and sunglasses for added protection.

  • Hydrating Mist (Optional)

Carry a hydrating facial mist for a quick, refreshing splash during the day. You can further look for ingredients like aloe vera or chamomile for soothing effects.
