With spring in full bloom and summer just around the corner, our skincare routines must adapt to the changing weather. As temperatures rise, so do the challenges for our skin, from dryness during low humidity to increased oiliness in warmer conditions. While you might think your skincare regimen is foolproof, a few tweaks can make all the difference in keeping your skin radiant and healthy all year. That’s why we enlisted advice from licensed aestheticians Danelly Benavides, CEO and founder of Sumptuous Beauty Bar in Alpharetta, Georgia, and Sharon R. D’Errico of Sharon Rose Cosmetics in Nashua, New Hampshire. They’re here to help keep your skin under control, no matter the season or temperature.

“Every season has its own set of challenges that may alter our skin,” shares Benavides. “This is why it is always important to seek the advice and guidance of a skin professional to analyze your skin and use the correct products to address skin concerns.” At her beauty spa, Benavides recommends monthly maintenance facials for clients, allowing them to monitor their skin’s changes throughout the seasons and offer tailored advice. “Many of our clients also travel to multiple locations throughout the year and may experience many climates at any given time,” she says. 

Similarly, D’Errico has witnessed firsthand the impact of constant weather shifts on her clients’ skin since she practices in New England. “Sensitive skin can be the most vulnerable with temperature changes,” she says, noting how everyone must prioritize and balance dehydration within the skin throughout the changing seasons. She, too, advises clients to book maintenance facials, often suggesting a Repechage Signature Facial to address their needs effectively, like the Four Layer Facial.

The bottom line? A comprehensive skincare regimen, including cleanser, toner, serum, eye cream, moisturizer, and a skin barrier is essential to shield your skin from environmental stressors. Benavides also recommends incorporating an exfoliant and mask weekly for support. “Having healthy skin and using the appropriate products will help maintain a strong and healthy skin barrier, fight free radicals, protect from UVA and UVB rays, and prevent transepidermal water loss,” she advises. 

Here’s what to look for every month and some product recommendations for managing skin during every season: 

Winter 

If you're prone to dry skin, it may worsen during the winter months. That’s why Benavides recommends nourishing products that work by forming a protective layer on the surface of your skin and creating a barrier to prevent moisture loss, such as Repêchage’s Hydra Dew Pure collection and the Hydra Dew Pure Moisturizing Lift Facial. “These products and facial treatments are formulated with natural mastic water from the Aegean Island of Chios, Camellia japonica seed oil, Repêchage’s exclusive sustainably harvested seaweed extract, and other beneficial botanical ingredients nourishing the skin with hydration and key essential ingredients for hydrated and rejuvenated skin,” she says. You might also consider the award-winning Hydra Dew Pure Oil, which can be used on the face or the body to hydrate and restore skin.  

Spring 

Spring heralds a surge in allergens, making it a critical time for skin care. Benavides loves providing her clients with soothing, relaxing, and antioxidant-rich products and treatments to help calm the skin from redness, irritation, and flare-ups. Her recommendation? Repêchage’s Hydra 4 Red-Out Facial with seaweed extract and silver and the Hydra 4 Starter Collection for at-home care. “[The Hydra 4 Red-Out Facial] is rich in antioxidants, which will help repair the skin, prevent free radicals from damaging the skin, and protect the skin from environmental factors,” she adds. If you’re in a pinch for time, try incorporating the Red-Out Soothing Sheet Mask in the morning before wearing makeup or before a special event twice a week. This mask 

helps lessen the visible appearance of redness on the skin and restores moisture. 

Summer

Summer invites us to spend more time outdoors, often under the sun’s harmful rays. You should use a protective barrier year-round, but if your plans involve a trip to the beach or a day at the pool, you should reapply often. D’Errico recommends the Repechage Mineral Face Shield as it’s “the perfect product and can be used by the entire family. Protects against free radical damage and harmful UV rays.” Remember that prolonged sun exposure can also mean excess oiliness, breakouts, and hyperpigmentation, so it’s best to find the right products for this time of year. A great recommendation is the Hydra Medic Face Wash for Oily Problem Skin. This wash gently exfoliates excess grime buildup and helps to prevent a greasy feel during the day.

Fall 

Be sure to assess your skincare and skin for signs of sun damage following summer. D’Errico believes this is the best time to try the Biolight® Starter Collection, as it comes with a cleaner, toner, serum and day cream to help even out pigmentation damage that may have been caused by too much sun exposure during the summer months. If wrinkles and lines are a worry, try the Opti-Firm® Renewal Complex Night Cream. It’s power-packed with vitamins to help restore moisture and reduces fine lines and wrinkles. 

No matter the time of year, the best thing you can do is ensure your skin is prepared for what’s to come. From dryness in the winter to excess oil buildup in the summer, be sure to stock up on your favorite products and whip them out when appropriate to maintain healthy skin care and look radiant year-round.
