Girl, yes. So. Much. Yes.
The funny thing is, or at least the cruelly ironic thing is, that it didn’t change much at all that I can remember when I was in my teens and 20s. I used to have much oilier skin then and got frequent breakouts all year round. That was the status quo for about the first half of my life.
Sh*t got real in my mid-30s, and now I feel the seasons in my pores, LOL!
I’m probably also hyper aware of my skin now, whereas I didn’t think about it much back in the day, but as the temperature and the humidity changes, and yes, even in California we do have seasons. 🙂 But yeah, when the seasons change, my skin freaks out.
My skin is definitely feeling the effects of spring right now. First, I’m taking allergy meds, which are making my skin even drier than usual, and I’ve also been getting hives that pop up at the most inopportune moments, like right when I have to meet somebody for the first time, and I’ve got a [email protected] red bump on my left cheek the size of my fist.
Second, because it gets really windy here in spring, I get windburn, and my skin physically hurts. It feels tight and kind of taught. It’s like a sunburn. 🙁
Yeah, my hives are no joke.
So, long story short, yes, my skin changes with the seasons, and I have to adjust my skin care and my makeup (mainly my base makeup, like primers, foundations and powders) accordingly.
How about you? Does your skin change with the seasons?
