(It's the weather changes, calm down)

A friend said that this season is the "out of time". Those months of the year when you don't know what to wear because it dawns very cool, then it rains, then the sun rises and it's very hot and you hesitate between wearing boots or sandals because you recognize that either of the two decisions will weigh at some point during the day.

Also, your face and hands suffer from these changes as they are the most exposed. The skin needs 15 to 20 minutes to adapt to sudden changes in temperature. In other words, if you are in an air-conditioned office and then you suddenly go out into the sun (and therefore the heat), your skin will surely react unfavorably and could present premature aging, dehydration, irritation, dryness, and flaking. This happens because temperature changes break the water balance of your skin's natural barrier.

To avoid this, we recommend the following:

1.- Hydrate yourself very well. Remember that drinking water is essential for the proper functioning of your body.

2.- Avoid sudden temperature changes. If you are in the office (in a cold climate as well as for raising penguins) turn off the air conditioning 15 minutes before you leave. This will give your body time to adjust to the warmer and wetter external climate.

3.- As much as possible, wear clothes that allow your body to have a constant temperature.

4.- Follow your dermatological routine to the letter, whatever it may be.

5.- You can add a very moisturizing cream for hands and face. This will prevent the skin in those areas from becoming dehydrated.

“Be good to your skin. You'll wear it every day for the rest of your life.”
