Human skin undergoes significant changes in winter. She becomes drier and more sensitive. That is why in winter the skin needs more thorough care and requires special attention.
Causes of dry skin in winter
It is known that the lower the air temperature, the lower the humidity. If on the street the decrease in humidity occurs by a few percent, then in the room with the beginning of the heating season it decreases to 20%. And this is 3 times less than the norm. That is why the skin becomes drier in winter.
Do not forget that any cosmetic detergent is usually alkaline. If you have a dry skin type, do not cleanse your skin with regular toilet soap. It dries the body even more. Give preference to mild cosmetics.
In general, in winter, try to moisturize your skin as often as possible.
General dehydration is also a factor in dry skin. To maintain the moisture level at an optimal level, you should regularly monitor the amount of fluid you consume. Experts recommend drinking 1.5-2 liters of purified still water during the day.
Cold also undoubtedly affects the condition of the skin. When going out into the cold, there is a spasm of the vessels of the skin. At the same time, the work of the sebaceous glands slows down, microcirculation of blood and blood vessels are disrupted.
Dry skin care in winter
1 hour before going out into the cold, it is necessary to apply any cosmetic products that contain water (for example, a moisturizing foundation) to the skin. Also in winter, experts recommend using nourishing creams in the morning. And in the evening, dry and sensitive skin of the body must be moisturized, knowing that you will not go outside.
A natural lotion can be used to nourish and cleanse the skin. To prepare it, mix 2 tablespoons of chamomile flowers and 1 tablespoon of linden flowers. The resulting mixture is poured with boiled milk. The infusion should settle for 30 minutes. After that, it must be filtered. The milk is ready to use.
This cosmetic product is stored in the refrigerator for no more than 2 days.
Exfoliating peels and scrubs dry out your skin even more during winter. That is why qualified specialists recommend carrying out an enzymatic peeling at this time. This procedure deeply and gently cleanses the skin without mechanical impact.
Experts recommend including biorevitalization with hyaluronic acid in the care procedures in winter. This acid is the best moisturizer available today. This procedure removes wrinkles, improves skin elasticity and restores water reserves.
