As soon as the winter starts our skin suffers from the cold outside. And it becomes dry, flaky, rough, cracked which causes discomfort and sometimes even pain. Due to this many people think that in such cases it will be enough to apply a fat cream from head to toe but the dermatologist disagrees with this. In their opinion, skin protection in winters needs to be approached more thoroughly. And hence here are some rules that they recommend.
Hiding from the cold
A very important rule that many for some reason forget to follow is going out in the extreme cold. Try to avoid going out in the cold less often and be sure to dress appropriately for the weather, wear gloves, a warm scarf, and if you are very cold, run home to warm up as soon as possible. But avoid wetting your frozen hands and face with hot water. Because after the sharp temperature drops it may result in skin problems.
During winters peeling may appear on the skin. Creams containing urea will help get rid of it. The skin is renewed and hydrated faster, as a result of which the skin will return to its previous appearance. But if the peeling is too noticeable. Contact a specialist who can quickly solve your problem.
Winter is the time when you need to take care of your lips. As they need hydration more than ever, especially after walking in the cold wind. Also do not lick your lips, when they get dry, infact use a nourishing balm, and smear them with a fat cream at night.
Shower gels have the ability to defat the skin, which often leads to dry skin in cold seasons, when the skin is already suffering from external factors, give up foaming cosmetics. Especially if you shower every day. So in place of that use cosmetics with a natural composition – it does not foam so much and dries the skin less.
Humidify the air
With the beginning of the heating the air in your apartment becomes too dry, which causes dryness in both your skin and the body. To avoid unpleasant consequences, get a humidifier. This small thing will maintain the necessary air humidity in the room, which will help prevent a number of diseases and avoid skin problems.
Be sure to use a moisturizer, and the fatter it is, the better. You need to apply a cosmetic product a couple of hours before going outside so that it has time to be absorbed and dry. Otherwise, the moisture that did not have time to evaporate will lead to hypothermia of the skin, which will have a completely undesirable effect.
If you want to take care of your skin be sure to include foods rich in saturated fats, such as fish and unrefined vegetable oils, in your diet. You should also reduce the amount of sugar consumed, as it affects the condition of the sebum. The skin will not be getting enough nourishment, and this can lead to dryness.
