Winter is nearly here and those cold nights are coming…
We all love to keep warm during this period by putting the heating on- which is lovely, but can dehydrate the skin.
Cooler temperatures outside, combined with central heating cranked up to the max can leave us with dry skin with sore patches and flaking.
What actually happens to our skin in weather like this?
When it’s very cold, there is less moisture in the environment, this lack of moisture is compounded by wind, which keeps moisture away from the skin.
This change in climate can damage the barrier of our skin, when we come in to a cosy warm room after being out in the cold, this rapid change can strip the skin from its natural moisture and leave it drier and feeling sensitive.
How can we improve upon this with moisturising products and why should we moisturise?
Moisturising products are a must for this time of year.
When going out in the cold make sure you are wrapped up by wearing hats, scarves and gloves. Avoid over cleansing the skin which can strip natural oils and use a clinically-proven moisturiser and an SPF on top (the damaging rays are always around, even on a cloudy day!)
Moisturising products will add goodies such as Hyaluronic acid and anti oxidant protection to the skin, helping to protect and lock in moisture.
A good moisturiser will also protect the skins barrier from being broken down.
