The Seasons of Your Skin

Can the changing seasons affect your planning? Oh yes it can! Plans for weddings, parties, vacations are all determined by the seasons. As the wheel of the seasons begins to turn, this also affects the skin's function. Multiple studies have carried out research into the close links between the condition of the skin and harsh climatic factors and changes in the weather. This research has enabled it to give a skin diagnosis for each season and to define the conditions of the skin throughout the seasons.
