The Science of Seasonal Skin Changes


As the temperature drops and we transition into the colder months, your skin may also go through a series of transformations along with the weather. Here’s what you need to know about seasonal skin changes and what you can do to address these concerns.

Scientific Reasons Behind Seasonal Skin Changes

Changes to the Skin’s Protective Barrier

Filaggrin is a crucial protein for maintaining the quality of the outermost layer of the skin, known as the epidermis. This substance helps keep the skin strong and healthy while protecting against contaminants such as bacteria, pollutants, and other skin irritants.

Exposure to cold air can change the pH balance of the skin as well as affect levels of filaggrin. As these important components fluctuate in your skin’s protective barrier, you may experience more cases of irritated skin during winter.

Changes in Humidity Levels

During the warmer months, the presence of humidity in the air can help to maintain the softness and hydration of the skin. During the cooler months, however, the air becomes drier, resulting in reduced moisture levels. This can cause dryness of the skin. Typically, maintaining a humidity level between 30% and 50% is considered optimal for your home. Extreme levels of humidity, whether too low or too high, can lead to various issues.

Why Is Skin Hydration Important During the Colder Months?

It’s important to hydrate your skin during the colder months because of several factors that can draw moisture away from the skin. These include:

  • Harsh winter winds
  • Dry indoor heat
  • Long and hot showers

Without proper skin hydration, your skin might experience the following symptoms during winter:

  • Flaky, rough, or crepe-like texture
  • Acne or other skin condition flare-ups
  • Poor elasticity
  • Amplified appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Itchiness or irritation
  • A dull complexion
