Common seasonal skin concerns & how to address them

Did you know that your skin is susceptible to seasonal, environmental, and internal changes? Do you know how to interpret these changes and more importantly, how to change or tweak your current regime successfully for best results? This is where the skin experts at Biologi can help provide practical advice to ensure you maintain healthy glowing skin every day of the year.

In Australia, we are moving into the cooler months of the year, and you may want to ready your skin to provide extra nourishment, hydration, and protection to ensure your barrier function remains in its optimal health.

When our skin is exposed to the changing elements of the cooler months, like drops in temperatures, indoor heating, and low humidity it may start to feel a little drier and/or dehydrated. This, combined with increased indoor heating and warmer showering may dry and dehydrate your skin further, resulting in a less than optimal barrier that may be susceptible to sensitisation if not corrected.

If you begin to experience redness, flakiness, tightness, and irritation in the cooler months, your skin has likely become sensitised. However, this doesn’t mean you have to suffer!
By having a thorough understanding of potential skin triggers that cause sensitisation, you can quickly turn this around. 

Can you differentiate between a dry skin (a lack of oil) and a dehydrated skin (a lack of water)?

These two can often be easily misunderstood, causing misdiagnosis, incorrect product choice and a lack of results.
By accessing expert advice, combined with right skincare regime you can get your skin back on track, and fast!

We love Bf Restore Face & Body Serum to help lock in moisture, providing protective and restorative phyto-actives for the skin. If you need extra nourishment for a dry & dehydrated skin, the Br Rosehip Oil is the perfect companion because it contains skin loving linoleic fatty acids, Vitamin E and A. Simply layer the Br Rosehip Oil on top of the Bf Restore Face & Body Serum, once it has absorbed into the skin.

Perhaps you have concerns of increased hyperpigmentation after a summer in the sun? Winter is a great time to target this skin condition.

When your skin goal is to improve hyperpigmentation or skin discolouration, it’s important to understand that certain factors or ‘triggers’ can increase pigment in the skin. These can include:
  • UV sun exposure,
  • skin injury,
  • medication,
  • hormones,
  • and, artificial fragrances.

Hyperpigmentation can be challenging to treat and the key to success is education, knowledge, and a thorough understanding of the cause in order to receive best results. To treat hyperpigmentation, we choose the BQK Radiance Duo Serum. The vital phyto-actives in our morning and evening serum work together to assist in targeting uneven skin tone and helping to brighten pigmentation in the skin. When we cycle back to spring, watch out for increased skin allergies, eczema, and dermatitis. This is a time where your regime may need some simplifying to focus on strengthening the skin barrier. Finally, when summer comes around again, UV induced skin conditions, like hyperpigmentation and ageing along with potential increased oiliness and breakouts will have you searching for powerful targeted serums. Try Bd Luminosity Serum to help to keep the skin clear and Bk Vitamin C Face and Eye Serum for protecting the skin cells and brightening the skin.
