How to Change Your Skincare Routine For Every Season

How to Change Your Skincare Routine For Every Season

Did you know that your skin’s needs change with the seasons?

Everything from temperature and humidity to sun exposure and air-conditioning/indoor heating affects how your skin cells function. As a result, if you want your skin to look its best year-round, you’ll need to tweak your skincare routine as the seasons transition.

Read on as Venofye talks you through the most important changes to make:

Adapting Your Skincare Routine For Spring

Spring brings with it some relief from the harshness of winter. However, it’s also when you need to start safeguarding your complexion against all that the warmer weather throws at it:

Swap to a Lighter Moisturizer

Beehive Silk Cream

One of the biggest changes that your skin undergoes as temperatures rise is an increase in sebum production. This means that your skin will be better equipped to keep itself moisturized and conditioned.

Although it will still need some help with this, it won’t require the rich creams that were a lifesaver in the winter months. Instead, springtime is when you can lighten up your moisturizer, swapping to a silkier and less greasy formula, just like the Venofye Beehive Silk Cream. It hydrates the skin with lightweight humectants, including sodium hyaluronate, algae extract, and soluble collagen. It will keep your skin moisturized without leaving your pores feeling clogged.

Pay More Attention to Sun Protection


There’s no getting away from the fact that sun protection is essential year-round. However, UV levels start to increase in the spring, meaning that you should be doing the same with your SPF usage.

While you may have been able to get away with using a low SPF product in the winter, spring is when you need a sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30. Again, just like when choosing a moisturizer for the spring, a lightweight sunscreen, rather than a super-thick formula, is best. The Venofye Orchard Bee Brilliance Cream SPF 30 would be a great choice. It melts onto the skin quickly and, rather than leaving a white cast behind, it will have your skin looking dewy and radiant.

Go Big on Antioxidants

Even if you’re extremely careful about sun protection, you won’t be able to keep your skin 100% safe. Some of those UV rays will still manage to make their way through, which is when the serious damage begins. With the sun being responsible for up to 80% of the wrinkles and dark spots that develop on the face, it goes without saying that you’ll want to keep the appearance of sun damage at bay as much as possible.

This is where antioxidants come in. These powerful compounds are capable of reversing the appearance of UV damage, along with other forms of environmental damage. Although you should aim to use them year-round, they become even more essential in the spring and summer. Try adding more antioxidants to your skincare routine with the exquisite Serpent ThermDeluxe Serum from the Venofye Serpent Thermatox Collection. 

Add in a Soothing Eye Cream If You Suffer From Springtime Allergies


Springtime allergies can be extremely common, not to mention irritating. While medication tends to be the most efficient way to deal with these, an eye cream can help to reduce the look of puffiness and swelling that allergies often trigger around the eyes.

As an added bonus, many eye creams will offer up other benefits too. The Venofye Royal Jelly Bee Eye Firming Cream, for example, will not only calm your complexion with a blend of aloe vera, vitamin E, and panthenol, but it also contains ingredients that will firm up the feel of your skin while softening the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles. 

Adapting Your Skincare Routine For Summer

Your summer skincare routine doesn’t need to be too different from your springtime regimen. However, there are a few small changes that you may want to make:

Seek Out Ingredients That Prevent and Repair the Appearance of Discoloration

Royal Jelly Bee Luminescent Eye Serum

Hyperpigmentation is most commonly caused by sun exposure, something that greatly increases in the summer. If you’ve been neglectful about sun protection in the past and are now paying the price in the form of hyperpigmentation on your face, be aware that those areas of discoloration will only darken even more now that summer is here.

If you’d to address this, seek out ingredients that have been proven to lighten the look of discoloration. Vitamin C is a good example, as are licorice root extract, peptides, and bee venom. You’ll find them all in the Venofye Royal Jelly Bee Luminescent Eye Serum. Apply it to any discoloration around your eyes and those areas will soon look noticeably lighter and more even.

Pair Your Sunscreen With a Vitamin C and E Serum

As we mentioned earlier, sun damage is something that you want to avoid as much as possible. A sunscreen is vital for keeping your skin feeling safe from UV rays, but research shows that adding a vitamin C and E serum into the mix can increase this even further. 

If you don’t yet have a serum containing vitamins C and E, the Venofye Blossom Bee Vitamin C Serum is one to try. In addition to those two vitamins, it also boasts vitamin A, bee venom, and a number of antioxidant-rich botanical oils.

Favor Water-Based Skincare Products

Skincare products are usually either oil-based or water-based. As you can probably guess, oil-based products tend to be thicker than water-based products.

With sebum production peaking during the summer months, oil-based products could end up overloading your skin. This will leave it greasy and more prone to acne breakouts. Save your skin from this by ensuring that your summer skincare routine features water-based products. If water or aqua is the first ingredient on the ingredients list, you’re good to go!

Adapting Your Skincare Routine For Fall

With fall comes cooler temperatures and a gradual decline in humidity. Here’s how to adjust your skincare routine to encompass that:

Start Increasing Hydration

As the air starts turning drier, your skin will start feeling thirstier. The drier the air around you is, the faster your skin’s moisture reserves will evaporate into the air. This leads to dehydration, a condition that can occur in all skin types.

So, once you feel the humidity in the air beginning to decline, ramp up hydration in your skincare routine. Adding in a hydrating serum, such as the Venofye Iron Bee Boosting Serum, would be a good way to go. This formula is brimming with hydrating ingredients, including sodium hyaluronate, collagen, peptides, and glycerin. You’ll be able to keep your skin feeling quenched and looking dewy!

Use a Thicker Moisturizer on Cold Days

Blossom Bee Night Cream

Once the weather starts turning colder and drier, the skin’s sebum production begins to slow down. This can bring relief to those with oily skin, but it can mean that dry skin quickly starts to feel even drier.

To counter this, it’s time to swap your lightweight spring/summer moisturizer for a thicker version. Look for one that contains more emollients and occlusives. These will fill in any cracks in your dry patches while forming a seal over your skin’s surface to keep moisture trapped in. The Blossom Bee Quenching Night Cream, which has been enriched with shea butter, does this beautifully. 

Consider Reducing Your Use of Potent Actives

Sebum forms an integral part of your skin’s protective barrier. With sebum production starting to decline in the fall, skin barrier function does the same. As a result, the skin can sometimes begin to feel more sensitive as temperatures drop. It may start to react more easily, becoming annoyingly susceptible to irritants.

If your skincare routine is filled with potent active ingredients, this will only worsen things. When skin barrier function is compromised, you need to tone down your routine. Swap those actives for gentler products that focus on the same tasks but without potentially irritating your skin.

Adapting Your Skincare Routine For Winter

Now that you’ve entered into the coldest and driest months of the year, your skincare routine needs to accommodate the challenges that your skin will be facing:

Switch to a Gentler Cleanser

Blossom Bee Cleanser

As discussed, skin barrier function declines in the fall/winter. So, in addition to cutting back on your use of actives to save irritating your skin, consider switching to a gentler cleanser too. Some cleansers are notorious for stripping away the skin barrier. This isn’t ideal at any time of the year but becomes even less so in the winter.

One cleanser that’s well-suited to the winter months is the Venofye Blossom Bee Clarifying Cream Cleanser. It’s a sulfate-free formula that thoroughly cleanses the skin while providing an array of moisturizing ingredients.

Cut Back on Exfoliation

It’s not just cleansing that can leave the skin barrier feeling vulnerableexfoliation can have the same effect. While you may have needed to exfoliate three times a week in the summer to counter all of that excess oil that your skin was producing, this may not be necessary in the winter.

Instead, consider cutting back on how often you exfoliate. You should also make sure that you’re using a gentle exfoliator. The Venofye Blossom Bee Facial Peeling, for example, will remove dead skin cells while also hydrating your skin and giving it a boost of antioxidants. 

Try Double Moisturizing Dry Skin

Hopefully, you already introduced a thicker moisturizer to your skincare routine in the fall. However, now that winter is here, those with dry skin may find that their thicker moisturizer simply isn’t up to the job. There are two ways to get around this; find a moisturizer that’s even thicker or try double moisturizing your skin.

Double moisturizing is easy. All it involves is moisturizing your face twice, instead of just once. You can use the same moisturizer to do so or, for added benefits, use two different products. Either way, focus on your dry patches during your second application and your skin will soon feel so much softer.

Seasonal Skincare With Venofye

While having to change your skincare routine with the seasons may seem daunting, it doesn’t need to be so. Once you have a baseline routine in place, adding in the changes that we’ve shared above will be easy. It may require some thought when it comes to the new ingredients and products that your skin might need but this will pay off in the radiant glow that you’ll be able to sport throughout the year!
