Show your skin and hair some love

Beauty & Grooming

Don’t let the changing seasons have the last laugh on your beauty routine

Ever have the feeling that your skin and hair change with the seasons? It’s not just your imagination. The most drastic climate changes have a profound effect on the way our skin and scalp behave. Luckily, you can minimise seasonal impact with a good beauty routine and, of course, the right SATINIQUETM hair care line, G&HTM body care products and essentials by ARTISTRYTM skincare.

What causes change?

Let’s start at the beginning – there are three main reasons why seasonal changes wreak havoc on skin and hair:

  1. Humidity: The amount of moisture in the air has a profound impact on skin and hair. During summer, humidity can lead to clogged pores, which spells frizzy hair and uneven complexions, while in winter, the lack of moisture can cause skin to be dry and hair to be brittle.

  2. Sun: Damaging UV rays cause all sorts of harm to skin and hair – from speeding up the signs of ageing to weakening hair fibres resulting in frizz, breakage and dullness.

  3. Heat: Whether it comes from the blazing summer sun or the toasty winter heaters, heat is not kind to skin or hair. A loss of moisture can cause skin irritation, uneven complexions and dry, brittle hair.

What should you do?

Ladies and gentlemen, it’s time to get proactive:

  1. Establish a new routine

    Take the end-of-year seasonal change as an invitation to re-evaluate – or establish – a beauty routine. Assess your skin and hair, then involve additional steps in your regimen – if needed. Some boosts in care can be made without more effort. For instance, if you don’t normally use a conditioner after shampooing your hair, why not use the SATINIQUE 2 in 1 Shampoo & Conditioner to show it some extra love and bring out the silky shine? Easy!

  2. Add moisture

    Although they sit at the opposite ends of the climate spectrum, the cold months of winter and the hot months of summer rob skin and hair of moisture. Focus your energy on restoring the balance by applying SATINIQUE Hair Oil Serum to your tresses directly after a shower or lathering your skin with G&H REFRESH+ Body Milk.

  3. Treat problem areas

    Blemished complexion? Go back to basics and cleanse and pamper your face with essentials by ARTISTRY Gel Cleanser, Anti-Blemish Pore Refreshing Toner and Anti-Acne Gel Treatment.

  4. Don’t forget to protect!

    Whether in winter or summer, protect your skin and tresses against the damaging rays of the sun by wearing a wide-brimmed hat. In addition, SATINIQUE Hair Oil Serum keeps hair coated against heat and humidity and essentials by ARTISTRY Multi-Protect Lotion SPF 30 will help guard your complexion from UVA and UVB rays.

With a good trans-seasonal approach, your hair and skin will always have the last laugh.
