Seasons in the sun

Skin care in autumn

As your summer tan (real or fake) fades to sallow yellow, the remains of mini-scars from insect bites and scratches from your camping trips loom into view on your now-pale skin.

Skin care in winter

It’s generally not the cold that’s the problem, but the dryness brought on by the time of year and the air conditioning.

Skin care in summer

Summer’s a wonderful time of the year, but it can also be a time of raging sun, sweating and mosquitoes.

Skin care in spring

Spring tends to be a very good time for most people’s skin. Excessively dry or oily skin tends to find its balance and winter problems such as rosacea clear up.
