While this spring is feeling particularly cathartic, the change of season can cause all sorts of skin problems to bloom especially for those with reactive skin.
Notes dermatologist Dr. Peterson Pierre, MD of the Pierre Skin Care Institute:
“As we move from winter to spring, we tend to spend more time outdoors and there’s a greater chance of exposure to chemicals such as poison ivy or poison oak as well as insect bites which can trigger allergic reactions. Spring also brings a rapid rise in pollen count which can trigger allergies and be particularly problematic for those with sensitive skin. The warmer weather can lead to more sweating and potentially more acne breakouts. In addition, changes in the weather can trigger eczema flare-ups for reasons that are currently unknown.”
