The right skin care for the spring

It is not only nature that comes back to life after winter. This is also the case with humans, our metabolism increases and therefore we become more active again. Our skin also prepares for a new season, which is why it needs a completely different care. Because after the dark winter months, our skin is very dry and sensitive. Mild pH-neutral skincare products are therefore indispensable. Creams with high moisture content and less oil are also recommended.

The 3 Diadermine skincare rituals in spring

  1. Healthy lifestyle:
    Minerals, vitamins and nutrients: This triad is invaluable for beautiful, glowing skin. Because healthy skin requires a healthy diet. Fresh fruit and vegetables refine the complexion and prevent wrinkles – so they are part of the menu for optimum skin care.
  2.  Peels:
    The winter has demanded a lot of our skin. It is dry and pale. This is where peels help. They remove old skin cells and stimulate blood flow. This helps the skin to regenerate cells and helps it absorb the active ingredients in skin - care products more efficiently. Th e perfect kind of skin care in spring.
  3. Care:
    The sun is quite strong even in spring. So UV protection is an absolute must in skin care. The aggressive rays of the sun contribute to skin ageing and the development of pigmentation marks. A SPF of at least 20 is indispensable for good skin care. At the outset of spring the skin is extra sensitive und needs to adapt to the sunlight after the long dark months.


The right skin care for the summer

More sun, more heat, more hydration and less product: in summer, your skincare needs to adapt to the warmer season. Increased temperatures and humidity cause us to sweat a lot more. The skin becomes oilier and tends to develop spots. Skin care in summer protects against UV rays and ageing and has a wonderfully light texture.
The lighter your skin type, the higher the sun protection factor (SPF). In general, the SPF should be at least factor 20, this to prevent pigmentation, such as age spots, and sunburn.


The 3 Diadermine skincare rituals in summer

    1. Sun protection:
      Sunscreen is your best friend during the summer months. Make sure to apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 every day, even if it's cloudy outside. Reapply every two hours, especially if you're swimming or sweating. Wearing protective clothing, hats, and sunglasses can also provide additional protection from harmful UV rays. 
    2. Hydration:
      Hydration is key to maintaining healthy skin, especially in hot weather. Drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out. Additionally, use a lightweight, oil-free daycream to prevent your skin from drying out. Look for products containing hyaluronic acid or glycerin, which can help attract and retain moisture in the skin without feeling heavy.
    3. Gentle cleansing:
      Sweating more during the summer can lead to clogged pores and breakouts. Opt for a gentle, non-comedogenic cleanser to remove sweat, oil, and impurities without stripping away the skin's natural oils. Consider using a cleanser with salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide if you're prone to acne, but be mindful not to overdo it, as excessive cleansing can exacerbate skin irritation.


The right skin care for winter

Icecold outside and very warm inside. The winter season is one of extremes, which all skin types have to deal with. The skin's metabolism shuts down, weakening blood flow. The skin receives less oxygen and nutrients, making cell renewal slower, resulting in dryness, a tight skin feeling and itching. The skin loses radiance and looks pale. At the same time, the natural protective film consisting of sweat and sebum is weakened. The lower the temperature, the less sebum the skin produces and the thinner the protective film becomes. With the right skin care, the skin feels healthy and supple even in winter. As a rule, all skin care products should now contain a high oil content.


The 3 Diadermine skincare rituals in winter

    1. Hydrate intensily:
      Cold temperatures and indoor heating can strip your skin of its natural moisture, leading to dryness, flakiness, and even irritation. Switch to a heavier, more emollient day and night cream during the winter to provide your skin with the extra hydration it needs. Look for moisturizers containing ingredients like hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and natural oils such as jojoba or argan oil to help replenish moisture and create a protective barrier against harsh environmental factors.
    2. Limit hot showers and baths:
      While it may be tempting to indulge in long, hot showers or baths during the winter to warm up, hot water can actually strip away the skin's natural oils, leaving it dry and irritated. Opt for lukewarm water instead, and limit your shower or bath time to no more than 10 minutes. After bathing, pat your skin dry with a towel and apply moisturizer immediately while your skin is still damp to lock in moisture.
    3. Protect your skin barrier:
      The skin barrier, which acts as a protective shield against external aggressors, can become compromised during the winter due to cold, windy weather and low humidity levels. Incorporate products into your skincare routine that help strengthen and repair the skin barrier, such as ceramide-rich creams or serums. Additionally, consider using a humidifier indoors to add moisture to the air and prevent your skin from drying out.


The right skin care for fall

Sandwiched between cold and wet and sunny and warm: Autumn has much more varied weather, and the skin suffers considerably as a result. However, it is not just the changes in temperature, wind and rain, but also the turning on of the heating that your skin needs to be prepared for. Strengthening, nourishment and protection are now the watchwords for good skin care. Now is the time for exfoliation, moisturising masks and intensive treatments. Depending on the type, skin now needs skincare products with a low SPF and with more oily ingredients. Aloe Vera and ingredients from the sea (algae, minerals and clay) are now a must!
Very important is to change your skincare slowly, switching products too quickly can cause skin damage.


The 3 Diadermine skincare rituals in autumn

    1. Moisturize regularly:
      As the weather starts to cool down, the air becomes drier, which can lead to dry, flaky skin. Switch to a richer, more hydrating moisturizer to provide your skin with the extra nourishment it needs during the fall months. Look for moisturizers containing ingredients like shea butter, ceramides, or squalane to help lock in moisture and prevent moisture loss.
    2. Exfoliate gently:
      Exfoliation is essential for removing dead skin cells and promoting cell turnover, but be mindful not to overdo it, especially as the weather gets cooler. Opt for gentle exfoliants like alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) or beta hydroxy acids (BHAs) to help slough away dead skin cells without causing irritation. Limit exfoliation to once or twice a week to prevent over-exfoliation, which can lead to sensitivity and dryness.
    3. Protect your skin:
      Although the sun may not feel as intense as it does during the summer months, UV rays are still present year-round. Continue to apply sunscreen daily, even in the fall, to protect your skin from sun damage and premature aging. Consider using a moisturizer with built-in SPF for added convenience, and don't forget to apply sunscreen to exposed areas like your face, neck, and hands, even on cloudy days.
