Every season comes with its share of skin care problems—be it dryness during winters, or oiliness during summer—which demands that we are proactive when it comes to our skin care regimen. “When the temperature and humidity change, you must transition your skin care routine in order to adapt to the weather shift. What suits you in winter might not fit once summer hits, as the amount of sun exposure varies from season to season, and that plays a vital role in customising the skin care regime. Pigmentation, ageing, and other factors that affect the tone and texture of the skin are highly influenced by temperature and humidity changes. Thus, your skin care requires dermatologically certified attention, starting with the very basics of using the right cleanser, sunscreen, moisturiser, and serum,” explains Dr. Karishma Kagodu, plastic surgeon, founder and managing director of Dr. Karishma’s Aesthetics.
