Cold weather begins, shock treatment to combat its effects

The cold of winter wreaks havoc on our skin and the most sensitive areas to low temperatures such as the cheeks, lips, neck, décolleté and hands suffer during this time of year.

To avoid this damage, it is important to take care of the skin and prepare it. Here are some tips to keep your skin healthy and protected during this season:

  • Moisturizing: Moisturizing is essential to keep skin soft and supple. Use a moisturizer rich in moisturizing active ingredients such as hyaluronic acid. Apply the cream after washing your face or body and also before going outside.
  • Sun protection: Even though it is winter, the sun’s rays are still harmful to the skin. Use sunscreen with an appropriate SPF, especially if you spend time outdoors on sunny days or in the snow, as it reflects UV rays.
  • Gentle cleansing: Opt for mild, alcohol-free cleansers to avoid over-drying the skin. Wash your face with lukewarm water instead of hot water, as the latter can remove the skin’s natural oils.
  • Avoid long, hot baths: Prolonged baths with hot water can strip the skin’s natural oils and cause dryness. Opt for short showers and use lukewarm water instead of hot.
  • Gentle exfoliation: Exfoliating the skin helps to remove dead skin cells and allows the moisturizer to penetrate better. Choose mild products to avoid damaging the skin’s protective barrier.
  • Protect your lips: Lips tend to dry out quickly during the winter. Use a lip balm with moisturizing ingredients and SPF to protect them from the sun’s harmful rays.
  • Moisturize from within: Drink enough water throughout the day to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out.
  • Use of humidifiers: Consider using a humidifier at home to increase the humidity of the environment and prevent the skin from drying out.
  • Protect your hands and feet: Use gloves and socks to keep your hands and feet warm and prevent them from cracking due to the cold.
  • Avoid excessive use of heating: Heating systems can reduce the humidity in the air, which can negatively affect your skin. Try to maintain a warm but not too dry environment.

Remember that every skin type is different, so you may need to adjust your winter skin care routine to meet your skin’s specific needs. If you have any concerns or persistent problems, it is advisable to consult a dermatologist for proper diagnosis and treatment.
