Seasons my of course be a reason to for the need of cooling down the skin. This could be happening in several ways.
- Change in seasons: Due to change in seasons, the skin might try and adapt to the change. This will cause the skin to be sensitive while it may normally may not be. The sensitiveness of the skin might lead to the need of cooling down and to soothe it. - Spring season: Because of the warmer weather and even the pollen and other new factors in the air the skin might be reacting to this. - Summer season: Because of the heat, of course skin might feel look it needs cooling!- Fall & Winter season: Because of the drop in temperature and the cold weather, skin can be dehydrated, dry and flaky. Such skin can feel itchy as well and kind of worked up, causing it to feel the need of coolness and soothing.
