As the seasons change, shift your skincare routine.

We have been dog sitting for a friend. Hawthorne has been going everywhere with us, even hiking yesterday to Rattlesnake Cliffs. The weather shifted from cloudy to sunny and we were ready - with both rain gear and sunscreen.

 

As the seasons change, I also like to keep my skincare routine flexible. In the winter I use a lot more Calendula cream for dry skin and Super Skin Salve on my hands so my fingers don't split open. I still use sunscreen when outside hiking, snowshoeing, etc. but usually only my face is exposed.

 

In the summer I focus on sunscreen and Lavender + Sandalwood Cream as it is lighter and reduces inflammation from bug bites. Mosquitoes love me. Super Skin Salve is called on for sunburns, scrapes, etc and my Chamois Cream for friction areas while cycling and hiking (or any hot, sticky day wearing a skirt). 

 

Always in use are lip balms, deodorant, foot cream and soaps. So be flexible and prepared like Hawthorne, your skin will thank you
