It's spring time! A season where days are longer than nights and days start to warm up.
And as temperature levels began to rise this spring, it might also bring additional challenges to your skin.
According to a study, our skin reacts due to the dramatic changes it experiences as the season shifts. Some of us might deal with extra oiliness and sebum on our face. Not to mention body sweats, which start to increase as the weather gets warmer. Plus, others might experience breakouts.
With that, here are certain factors which can hugely affect and could wreak havoc on our skin this spring.
1.High Sun ExposureAs spring arrives and so are high UV rays.
It's hard not to go out and enjoy the beautiful scenery this warm season. However, not because we just transition from winter to spring doesn't mean the sun exposure isn't so high.
Going out in the sun without using a good amount of SPF won't do good for your skin.
Applying an SPF is a must this spring. So don't forget to bring it with you to protect your skin. Unless premature skin aging and skin damage doesn't scare you.

Welcoming spring can't be complete without stuffy noses and allergies. These horrible allergies as well as itchiness are pretty common during this season of the year.
As you may know, spring is the time where trees and flowers bloom. As irritation occurs, you might find yourself touching your face and skin more often which leads to breakout. Make sure your hands are always clean whenever you come in contact with your sensitive skin.
6. Skin allergies
Some might experience heat rash due to the hot weather and perspiration. Others might deal with hay fever, hives, and even dermatitis due to pollen from the air and other factors. So be very careful this season and make sure to drink plenty amount of water.
7. Dry and Dull complexion
Our skin can either become oily or dry in spring. But most often than not, it's the latter which is more common. This is due to the seasonal changes our skin experiences. Winter causes our skin to get dry. So, because of the prolonged dryness your skin went through, it might still appear dull and dry even if the new season arrives.
