No matter what your age, the secret to beautiful skin is a meticulous skin care routine, although that routine will change slightly over the decades. Each decade comes with unique skin changes and challenges that can be addressed with good habits and certain skin care products that address the science behind your changing skin.
Beyond your age, the seasons affect your skin as well. In the winter, you may find that your skin is dry, flaky, and dull while in the summer, you worry about sun damage, clogged pores, and oil. Just like with the changing decades, your skin care routine should be adjusted slightly with the seasons to keep your skin healthy and beautiful throughout all the changing temperatures and precipitation.
As Houstonians, you may find that our long, humid, and hot summers are the most trying on your skin. Whether you’re looking for ways to protect your skin against the ever-present Texas sun or tips on how to wear makeup in this heat without a) irritating your skin or b) feeling like it’s melting off your face, we feel your pain.
While we recommend talking with your dermatologist about the specific products, treatments, and skin care routines that will best help you care for your skin, we’ve asked our board-certified dermatologists and physician assistants at Houston Skin Associates to help you get started on devising the perfect summer skin care routine that also takes into account your age.
