The cold season is the period during which the skin is more sensitive and for this reason, it is necessary to take care of the skin during the winter both through small tricks to follow every day and with the use of specific products.
The enemies of the skin during the cold season
Making the winter the most dangerous season for our skin is clearly the climatic factor: the first enemy is the cold that dries and chaps the skin, followed by rain and wind which contribute to increasing irritation and various skin imperfections.
The situation can become even worse if mistakes are made in the daily care of the epidermis.
Avoid hot and prolonged showers
One of the most common mistakes consists of making showers with very hot and too long water. In fact, this practice influences our epidermis, which is mostly made up of keratinocytes, keratin-laden cells, the main constituent of the stratum corneum, or the most superficial layer of the skin. Keratin performs a complex function of defending the skin from the external environment and also helps retain moisture. To help the keratinocytes maintain the right moisture level of the epidermis, the body produces natural oils also contained in the stratum corneum. The heat and the long stay in the shower tend to remove these natural oils letting the humidity escape and causing dryness, itching, redness and cracking.
Exfoliate the skin
Another custom to add to take care of the skin during the winter is that of exfoliation. Exfoliating the skin regularly is essential in every season of the year and even more so in winter, since dead cells, preventing the epidermis from breathing, would lead to imperfections such as pimples and blackheads, which can be counteracted by scrubbing week.
Use the most suitable products for your skin and the season
Each skin has its specificities and using a cream that is not suitable is certainly one of the most serious mistakes that can be made. It is therefore essential to have a thorough knowledge of the characteristics of one’s own skin in order to understand its needs and apply the line of products best suited to its characteristics in the care of every day.
When it is also realized that the skin is subject to irritation and cracking it would be advisable to use, in addition to the daily routine products, specific winter products able to counteract and prevent all the typical imperfections of the cold season.
