Beauty Tips for Every Season

Look Good in Any Weather

Page 6 of 4

Don’t forget to wear sunscreen every day, even if you live in a cold, snowy area. Snow reflects about 80 percent of the ultraviolet radiation that hits it, meaning you’re at risk for sun damage even in the middle of January.

Looking your best throughout the year doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive. By maintaining a regular skincare routine and adjusting it to suit the season, your own personal beauty will continue to glow in any kind of weather.

  • going into fall & winter this was a timely article for me! I use olive oil and sugar so I can exfoliate the feet! I mainly use the sensitive skin tips but staying away from harsh chemicals and using natural products keep away the issues~ - 11/4/2014 3:03:58 PM

  • I love how guys don't think they can get dry skin or hair. They make moisturizer and hair products for men too. Take care of yourself inside AND out and it makes you feel better. Women don't just do it to look good, you know. - 8/19/2011 6:18:26 PM

  • Great article!

    I find that year-round, my skin is happier if I use gentle, fragrance-free products made for sensitive skin. I always use a non-comedogenic facial moisturizer with SPF 15. I have oily, acne-prone skin and never thought I should moisturize, but a gentle moisturizer actually calms down the oiliness. Especially in summer, I like to mix a little bit of liquid makeup into my moisturizer, to make my own tinted moisturizer.

    My husband has psoriasis and has more, and worse, outbreaks in winter. I think it comes from irritated, dry skin. We switch to moisturizing body wash and a rich, fragrance-free body lotion.

    And of course, drink plenty of water year-round for healthy skin and hair! - 8/19/2010 12:59:53 PM

  • HELP! I am new to Florida's humidity. My face seems to always be wet. Any hints about ways to combat that (it's kind of embarrassing!) would really be appreciated. Thanks!! - 12/28/2009 7:24:46 AM
  • "If you’re a blonde (natural or otherwise), be sure to remove any chlorine residue with a clarifying shampoo to prevent that telltale greenish tinge." As a natural blonde and former lifeguard, I know all about having green hair. However, chlorine is NOT the culprit! Copper, used to prevent algae growth, is the real proplem. You have probably seen a statue or roof of copper that has oxidized to green - this is what is happening to your hair.
    If you have your own pool (or can influence the pool manager), use SILVER instead of copper as your metal agent. It is equally as effective and you can swim daily, as I do in the AZ desert, without the slightest risk of turning green. - 8/26/2009 6:05:04 PM
  • A soft washcloth is a wonderful way to smooth out lips! I do that too. I find it very difficult to find products that are fragrance-free as I am sensitive to scents and can become pretty sick. It is very hard to remember that others find them pleasing when they make my environment uncomfortable. This article has great seasonal tips, thanks! - 1/31/2009 12:56:19 PM
