Your Seasonal Skin Strategy Seconds
Summer to Winter Shifts

Thermoregulation and You
In the sizzling heat of summer, your sweat glands are in overdrive, secreting fluids to cool down the body. But come winter, they hit the snooze button. With decreased sweat and oil production, the skin loses its natural protective layer, making it more susceptible to damage. So, what's the move? The key lies in maintaining a robust lipid barrier. Think omega-3 fatty acids, myristic acid, and ceramides—lipids that keep skin from losing moisture.

Tactical Hydration
Ditch the lightweight summer lotions and opt for heavier creams or ointments. These bad boys are packed with hyaluronic acid and peptides that offer an intensive moisture hit. Apply within a few minutes post-shower to lock in that H2O.


Sunscreen Isn't Just for the Beach
UVA rays are the ninjas of the sunlight world. They're sneaky, penetrating through clouds and even glass windows. This means they're a year-round issue. Go for broad-spectrum SPF that protects against both UVA and UVB rays, and make it a staple.

The Exfoliation Equation
Contrary to popular belief, winter is the prime time for exfoliation. Dead skin cells accumulate faster due to low humidity, and these need to go for your skincare products to work efficiently. Use a glycolic acid-based scrub to boost cellular turnover and reveal fresh layers underneath. A word of caution: limit the scrub action to once a week to avoid an overkill.

Micronutrient Magic
Don't underestimate the power of a well-balanced diet rich in antioxidants like vitamin C, E, and selenium. These micronutrients neutralize free radicals, which go haywire during seasonal transitions, damaging cells and accelerating aging.

Conclusion: Make the Shift, Own the Season
Switching your skincare from summer to winter is strategic, not superficial. It's all about using science to optimize for seasonal changes, whether that means adjusting your lipids or considering advanced treatments. And for those well-versed in the art of skincare, GOA's 6-product set, the Anti Aging Face Collection, might just fit into your seasonal playbook. Adapt and own each season.
