5 Tips to Beat Seasonal Skin Problems

Published in: Just For Fun, Skin Care


When seasons come and go, changes in temperature, humidity and sun exposure can really play tricks on skin. Here are five of my favorite skin care products and tips to deal with seasonal skin problems.

  • Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief: This Great Moisturizer Doubles as a Mask
    “Rapid temperature and humidity swings wreak havoc on skin. When we leave a heated building and head out into the cold, or enter an air conditioned building on a hot day, our skin works to maintain its moisture balance, and while it’s adjusting to environmental swings, skin will delay its own ability to repair.”
  • Clean and Clear Advantage Invisible Acne Patch
    “When work deadlines and sleep loss collide, like they did for me last week, I expect to get a few zits on my face (sigh). My latest little sebaceous gift included a painful pimple right beside my left nostril. Like most women, I usually dread pimples, but this zit (I named her Eva) gave me the perfect excuse to try out Clean and Clear’s Invisible Acne Patch.”
  • MAC Moisturelush Cream: Say Buh-bye to Dry
    “Everyone’s skin changes with age, but for women dry skin strikes earlier than it does for men. Guys experience moisture loss in their skin later in life than women do. A woman’s skin tends to become considerably drier after menopause. Thankfully, there’s moisturizer.”
  • Moisturize in a Flash with Olay Quench Mousse
    “When I hear the word ‘mousse’ I think of Bullwinkle, or maybe a creamy chocolate mousse (yum), or perhaps hair mousse, but I don’t think of moisturizing lotions — that is, until now. Introducing Olay Quench Mousse, Olay’s latest entry in the crowded field of body moisturizers.”
  • Your Skin Care Cheat Sheet: Retinols and Retinoids
    “Vitamin-A derivatives have a molecular structure small enough to penetrate skin’s lower levels, where they strengthen and replenish collagen and elastin. Clinical research going back 20 years confirms the anti-aging properties of retinoids like Retin-A and Renova.”

    I hope you put Eva out of her misery. I am having a major acne problem two weeks post-non-ablative Fraxel. Oh, vey! An acne patch — or acne bag over my head — may be just what the doctor ordered. Thanks.

    Karen I remember when you talked about Mac Moisturelush cream. I ran out and got it the same day and so did one of my friends and now we joke about it, because of how much we love it! Thank you for pointing me to the best moisturizer ever!

    What time is it in Hawaii….? Are you getting any sleep on your trip?

    I think I’ll pick up Moisturelush as my next face cream! Chanel is wonderful, but I could stand to try something less expensive! 😉

    I had never tried any MAC skincare until I recently picked up the Volcanic Ash Exfoliator which is amazing (I ran back and bought a 2nd one as a back up). Thanks for the tip on the Moisturelush!

    I seem to find that the more anti-acne products I use during the summer the worse my face gets. I use an oatmeal soap bar which also gets rid of the heat rash that I ALWAYS get when I go out into the sun and it helps with my acne. =(

    Your Hawaii pics are beautiful! Enjoy the rest of your time there. =)

    I have been meaning to try the Olay Quench mousse. Granted I already have 5,000 lotions but man, one more won’t hurt!! Right??
    Plus, last weekend I went boogie boarding at Ocean Beach and got some serious sunburn on the backs of my legs…the kind where the skin like PEELS off in sheets–ACKKK! Oh well, it’s over now…but I need me some Quench. And maybe some MoistureLush. And maybe the Volcanish Ash treatment that the other poster was writing about…

    Oh! You asked what I do. I’m an assistant manager at a big apartment complex near SDSU–I love it (and I think I might have the best commute in San Diego–I live like four steps away from the office, LOLZ). It’s like being on permanent vacation as far as I’m concerned.

    have a great day Karen!
