How Do Environmental Changes Affect the Skin?

Seasonal and environmental changes can have a big impact on the look and feel of our skin. Here at Seventy, we’ve put together a guide to show you how you can adapt your skincare routine and how skin boosters can help you achieve a healthy-looking glow, all year round.

Winter Skincare

Cold weather and central heating:

Many of us find that our skin feels drier during the colder months and the lack of vitamin D exposure can leave complexions feeling lacklustre. Whilst stepping out of the cold into the warm central heating feels like a relief, the drastic temperature changes can wreak havoc on our skin. Many people experience itchy skin in winter, caused by dryness and environmental changes. 

How to prevent dry skin in winter:

If you find that your skin is feeling especially dry, take a break from drying actives such as exfoliating acids and retinols. Focus on boosting your skin’s hydration and locking in moisture. Ceramides are a great addition to your skincare routine, helping to prevent transepidermal moisture loss. Incorporating a hyaluronic acid-based skin booster such as Seventy Hyal 2000 into your skincare routine can create the look of dewy, hydrated skin even in the winter months. Skin boosters offer long-lasting hydration, helping to ward of dryness and promote a smoother-looking visage.

Summer Skincare

With many of us choosing to embrace the ‘skinimalism‘ no-makeup look, summer skincare focuses on hydration and of course, SPF protection.

The importance of SPF:

Extended periods of UVA and UVB exposure can lead to both short- and long-term effects on the skin. Sun exposure can accelerate the look of skin ageing, causing pigmentation changes. This may present as a more uneven skin tone or an increase in the number of moles and freckles. The drying effects of the sun can lead to textural irregularities, such as rough or peeling skin. Without sufficient SPF protection, sun exposure can lead to an increase in wrinkles and fine lines, contributing to premature skin ageing. Daily SPF protection in all climates is essential to help reduce the risk of skin cancer, Fox recommends opting for a broad-spectrum SPF50 to ensure maximum protection.

Does air conditioning dry out the skin?

Air-conditioning and fan use are also renowned for their ability to dry out the skin, leaving it feeling tight and more prone to itchiness. It is vital to keep your body sufficiently hydrated in hotter climates to prevent dehydration and the visible toll it takes on our skin. Seventy Hyal 2000 acts as injectable moisturiser, providing deep, long-lasting hydration to create a fresh, dewy looking complexion. Ideal for the makeup-free warmer months, the skin booster is formulated with high molecular weight hyaluronic acid to ensure that your skin feels plumped with hydration all summer long.

City Living

Urban environmental factors also take a toll on our complexions. The blue light that emanates from our screens and devices both day and night can accelerate the visible signs of skin ageing, including fine lines, dullness and discolouration. Blue light also impacts our sleeping patterns, affecting the skin’s natural overnight renewal process. High energy visible light or HEV is also known as blue light can break down collagen and elastin within the skin, accelerating the visible signs of ageing, alongside inflammation and oxidative stress.

How to protect your skin from blue light:

Blue light skincare products have flooded the market over the last few years, as we become aware of the effect of constant screen exposure on our sleep, skin and mood. Blue light protection skincare typically incorporates sunscreens that feature iron oxides, along with botanical extracts such as marine algae and plankton.

What is anti-pollution skincare?

Whilst inevitable for those living in urban environments such as city centres, pollution can have a visible impact on our skin. Many skincare brands now feature an anti-pollution skincare line, claiming to defend against the oxidative damage caused by pollutants. These products are designed to cleanse the skin of nanoparticles and shield against pollutants, working in a similar way to sunscreens. However, many skincare enthusiasts question whether anti-pollution skincare actually works. Skin boosters create a more luminous complexion, helping to combat dullness, helping to keep skin looking healthy and radiant.

From ceramides, lip balm and heavier moisturisers in winter to year-round SPF protection, there’s a lot of factors to consider when it comes to seasonal skincare. When incorporated as part of your regular skincare routine, Seventy Hyal 2000 creates a year-round glow, helping to combat the effects of environmental factors on the skin. Offering intensive hydration and a boost of luminosity, the next generation skin booster is provides a universal base, simplifying your year-round skincare routine.
