sci­ence of skin­care for the new sea­son

Spring is a time of re­newal – and not even our body care rou­tine is immune. But the rea­sons be­hind chang­ing up your prod­ucts go beyond mar­ket­ing hype. Ex­per­i­ment nd­ings pub­lished in the 2018 Bri­tish Jour­nal of Der­ma­tol­ogy identi ed cel­lu­lar level changes that oc­cur on the skin dur­ing pe­ri­ods of sea­sonal change.

Util­is­ing high magni ca­tion tech­nol­ogy, re­searchers mon­i­tored the skin of 80 adults from sum­mer to win­ter. Dur­ing that time, they ob­served skin cell shrink­age as well as pro­tein break­down, which af­fected the skin’s abil­ity to main­tain bar­rier func­tion and al­tered its tex­ture. Nav­i­gat­ing your skin from this state is ul­ti­mately the goal of a trans-sea­sonal body care rou­tine.
