How to take care of the skin during winter?

Winter affects our skin adversely. To take care of its health, there are a few simple rules that we must follow…

How does winter harm the skin?

Low temperatures in combination with the wind dry and damage not only the skin of the exposed parts, but also the whole body. As a result, we observe disruption of microcirculation, barrier function and water-lipid balance. By adding the natural decline of immunity during the season and the reduced synthesis of vitamin D, we find dehydration, redness, roughening, peeling of the skin, as well as exacerbations of various conditions and diseases such as eczema, atopic and seborrheic dermatitis, rosacea, psoriasis and others.

What can I do?

It is necessary to replace summer light creams with deeply hydrating and compensating ones – gentle and recovery-aiding washing products, such as shower oils and shower creams. To maintain a feeling of comfort and softness throughout the day, apply thicker and richer textures to the body, face, lips and hands.

Remember that the sun and UV radiation have no winter break, especially in the mountains. Protect the skin on photo-exposed surfaces with a suitable sunscreen product with a factor of at least 30 SPF.

Wear hats, scarves and gloves made of soft, non-irritating fabrics, preferably with a high cotton content.

Don’t forget to drink enough water as well. It is extremely important for all basic processes in the body and skin. The optimal amount per day that is recommended is calculated using the formula 30 ml of water per kilogram of body mass.

If you visit swimming pools, keep in mind that chlorine and other preparations used in them also have an adverse effect, especially on people with more sensitive skin.
