The winter months can bring a series of challenges. There are of course plenty of things to enjoy about the winter, but those things are easier to enjoy if you are feeling good within yourself.
The winter blues can be a problem, as can being stuck indoors more and more. But the winter months can also have an effect on our skin.
The lower temperatures and lower levels of humidity that the winter typically brings can have an adverse impact on our skin. Dry indoor heat and tough winds can also end up leaving your skin in less than ideal condition.
You can find yourself with cracked skin, and even small bleeds where the skin gets really dry. Conditions such as eczema and psoriasis can also flare up in a big way during the winter months.
Why does our skin suffer in winter?
There are a few ways that our skin can suffer in the winter. One of the main reasons is because dry air draws moisture away from the surface of our skin. That lack of moisture is what leaves our skin chapped, sore and dry.
Dry air comes with the low humidity levels and colder temperatures of the winter, hence why such an impact can be felt on your skin. The cold weather and winds can also start to strip back our skin’s protective layers, meaning water can escape. This can leave our skin dehydrated. Irritants can also get into our skin, causing itchiness and making us suffer all the more.
All in all, the winter months and the conditions they bring are unfavourable for our skin. But there are plenty of things you can do to protect your skin over the winter. At Evolution Organics, we have natural skincare products that can help you keep your skin look great all winter long.
What can we do to protect our skin in winter?
Thankfully there are a host of things that we can do to help our skin in the winter months.
One of the easiest and most basic steps is to use cleansing products, and following this up with moisturisers. This helps repair and protect your skin from any winter ailments.
You can also bring masques or hydrating serums into the mix. These help your skin to retain water more effectively, preventing your skin dehydrating and keeping its integrity for longer.
You can use peptide serums and argan oil to help bring helpful nutrients and vitamins into the mix. These help to rebuild the skin’s most exterior layer, and prevent irritants tampering with your skin.
Also look to avoid super long showers or baths. Tempting though they may be, the temperatures of these can be the polar opposite of what the skin is facing during the rest of the day. This heat fluctuation means the skin can sometimes struggle to adjust, potentially bringing about more damage.
And if at all possible, do what you can to avoid the temptation to lick your lips to make them moister. You might think this is a good idea, but your saliva can contain digestive enzymes that can cause more irritation. So while the temptation may be there, try to ignore it!
