Spring Has Sprung – Embrace The Joys Of Seasonal Changes

Seasonal Changes

“If winter comes, can spring be far behind?”- P.B. Shelly

This phrase is the epitome of optimism. Shelly uses the word spring to symbolize hope and a fresh start. After the harsh cold winters comes the cheerful and flowery spring. Spring is all about new beginnings, seasonal change, opportunities, growth, and development. Similarly, our body also goes through lots of changes during the transition period and if you say you are feeling “under the weather” you are probably right. Well, the winters are gone and the spring is here so let’s gear up to face all these seasonal changes.

Seasonal Hair Fall

Spring brings growth and development, the flowers are blossoming but our hair is falling out. Don’t worry this is completely normal as in spring due to increased humidity and temperature there is increased hair loss. Hair Loss mostly occurs in the telogen phase or the resting phase of the hair growth cycle. Some of the reasons for this seasonal change in hair pattern are –

  • Change in hormones due to light, temperature, and other environmental factors
  • Nutritional changes
  • Stress
  • Sun exposure

You can deal with this seasonal change by –

  • Following a proper hair care regime.
  • Taking a balanced diet.
  • Shielding Your Hair from the sun.

Skin Issues

The skin already goes through a lot in the winter but it does not end there. Due to humidity and pollens, the skin may feel more irritated and also dry. Winters require heavy moisturizers but spring involves higher temperatures and humidity that lead to more sweating and more oil production which clogs the pores and may cause breakouts.

Tips you can follow for a clear skin during seasonal change are –

  • Avoid overexposure to the sun.
  • Upgrade your Skincare Routine.
  • Use light moisturizer.


The flowers are in full bloom during the spring which means the pollens are everywhere. Pollen is probably the reason why you hear so many people sneeze during spring as it is the most common trigger of season change allergies. Pollen allergies are also commonly called the Hay Fever or seasonal allergic rhinitis. April and May are the worst as the pollen can enter into the eyes, nose and lungs and lead to a runny nose, watery eyes, sneezing, and an itchy face.

Some steps you can follow to reduce reaction to pollen are –

  • Limit outdoor activities.
  • Change clothes when coming from outside.
  • Cover your hair and wear sunglasses when going out.

Spring Fever

The debate whether the spring fever is actually true or a work of fiction has been an ongoing one for many years now. Spring fever is not exactly fever however it is the feeling of fatigue and restlessness.

Stomach Bug

Noxvirus also called the stomach bug becomes very common during the springtime as the weather warms up. It causes stomach issues like diarrhea, vomiting, low-grade fever, and muscle pain.

Changes in Sleeping Patterns

Seasonal changes affect the circadian rhythm as they are directly influenced by environmental changes. In winter the days are short and can lead to longer sleeping times. In spring the days are comparatively longer and they trigger waking up early and sleeping late. The rise in temperature and humidity can also make it difficult to sleep at night.

Impacts Mood

We don’t say winter blues for nothing. Winter is actually known to decrease mood and energy due to less light and gloomy weather. There is even a technical term for it called Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). People dealing with SAD face regular sleep and appetite disturbances during seasonal change. The sunlight increases with spring and it improves the serotonin which uplifts the mood.

Tips You Can Follow To Brave The Seasonal Changes –

  • Take precautions for allergies.
  • Go for walks.
  • Get plenty of sleep.
  • Stay hydrated!!
  • Eat food that boosts your immune system.
  • Take your Biotin Supplements .
  • Exercise regularly.
  • Have a balanced diet.
  • Start a new hobby.
  • Connect with nature.
  • Switch up the Hair Care And Skincare Routine.
  • Opt for gel-based products instead of heavy moisturizers.
  • Apply your sunscreen when going out.

Summing Up

Embrace the new season with all its perks, the sunlight, the flora the allergies, and the light-heartedness it brings along. One of the main climatic changes in spring is the increase in humidity which impacts the hair and skin. Seasonal change also leads to hair fall which is also quite common and nothing to be concerned about.
