As we spring into warmer weather, you might notice that your skin is producing more oil than normal. It’s not uncommon—hot weather triggers an increase in natural oil production. This change is welcome for some, but if you already struggle with oiliness or acne, it’s not exactly the glow you’re going for.
The good news is that you can impact your skin’s oil production with the right skincare. For acne-prone skin, switch from a heavy cream to a light lotion as the temperatures rise. If your skin is oily, switch to an oil-control lotion. And for best results, anticipate your skin’s needs and start the transition early, before your skin has a chance to respond. Now is the time to start preparing for the warm days of summer.
