Just as you change your wardrobe throughout the seasons, your skincare needs can differ throughout the year too. As you layer on a jumper, donít forget to add a rich layer of hydrating moisturiser to your skin, as well as a touch of broad-spectrum sunscreen - even when the sun isnít shining. Come summer, you may need something slightly more mattifying and oil-controlling to help your skin cope with a change in humidity.
Here we take a look at how to care for your skin throughout the yearÖ
In the summer
Wearing sunscreen is essential throughout the year but especially in the summer when the sun is at its strongest. Even though you might not be able to feel or see the sun, your skin is still being exposed to UVA and UVB rays, which can increase your risk of skin cancer and skin ageing.
For an easy way to remember your daily dose of protection and help keep those fine lines at bay, choose a moisturiser with broad-spectrum SPF protection built-in. Our lightweight CeraVe AM Facial Moisturising Lotion provides broad spectrum SPF25 protection against UVA and UVB rays as well as all-day hydration and helps maintain your protective skin barrier. Itís also suitable for all skin types, from normal to dry and sensitive.
In the winter months
The winter months can be hard on the skin as cold weather and central heating can reduce water in the skin and leave it dry and dehydrated. A good moisturiser can help to reduce water loss and be your answer to year-round healthy and hydrated skin.
Ceramides are found naturally in the skin and make up 50% of the skinís barrier. When theyíre low, moisture escapes more easily from the skin and the protective barrier is weakened. Ceramide-enriched skincare products help strengthen the skinís barrier. Our moisturisers, including the CeraVe PM Facial Moisturising Lotion, are enriched with a blend of three essential ceramides (ceramides 1, 3 and 6-II). They also use our patented MultiVesicular Emulsion Technology (MVE), which releases moisturising ingredients throughout the day to deliver controlled hydration all day long.
Donít forget to also apply a layer of extra hydration to the delicate eye area to keep the skin hydrated. CeraVe Eye Repair Cream can be applied under the eye twice a day and is enriched with ceramides and hydrating hyaluronic acid. Itís specifically formulated to moisturise this delicate area and leave it looking brighter and more awake. Consider this your new morning hack to help brighten up tired eyes.
