Dry skin is the consequence of low dampness. On the off chance that you watch the climate projection on chilly winter mornings, you have presumably heard the meteorologist talk about low stickiness, the logical term for a deficiency of water in the air. This dry environment converts into dry skin, in any event, for the people who don’t invest a lot of energy outside throughout the colder time of year.
The justification behind this is that dry air drains the dampness out of the skin. To try not to have dry skin, you really want to go to lengths to control the stickiness in your current circumstance and keep it secured in your skin.
Applying a protective layer
The cold air outside is dry: there is relatively less moisture in the air than at normal or warm temperatures. You notice that you get dry eyes, dry lips, or tight skin more quickly outside. Before you go outside, you can therefore offer your skin a protective layer with a good lip balm and some oily cream. Just a little Vaseline can also work well! A night of Vaseline on the face can do wonders for extremely dry skin. The risk of allergic reactions is very small and it is very suitable for very dry and sensitive skin.
The right facial care
Avoid unwanted ingredients that make your skin extra dry without noticing. This applies to facial care, lip balm, body lotions, and wash gels. A few important ingredients that you can look out for yourself are alcohol, alcohol denatured or ‘ethanol’ in the products that you can use. It is best to avoid the sulfates with wash products, such as ‘sodium Laureth sulfate’ and ‘sodium lauryl sulfate’. They break down the natural skin barrier, making your skin more vulnerable and more irritated. Also use unscented products that contain one or more of the following ingredients: glycerine, petrolatum, ceramides, dimethicone, hyaluronic acid, and niacinamide.
Acid Peel Remove dead skin cells with glycolic acid. Glycolic acid not only removes dead skin cells but also ensures that moisturizing ingredients can be better retained in the skin. At Velthuis clinic, peelings with glycolic acid are performed by the skin therapists.
More humidity in the house
Indoor heating removes even more moisture from the air. Try to make the air in the house less dry by, for example, not putting the laundry in the dryer. Hanging a tray on the heating is another option and bringing more plants into your home and spraying them regularly is also a good option.
Do not shower too hot
Did you know that all that water dries out your skin enormously? Even without soap, your skin should recover for a long time! Showering and bathing is therefore a reasonable attack on your natural skin barrier. It is important to clean your skin regularly. This way you prevent dull skin with blockages and you have less chance of overpopulation of your skin with p.acnes (the bacteria that causes inflammation when you suffer from acne). So shower briefly and not too hot and only use mild products such as shower gels to wash with.
Clothing for the extreme cold
In very cold weather it is better not to use cream. The reason is an increased chance of frostbite of the skin. The cream also makes you less likely to feel the frostbite of the skin. If you are in a cold temperature for a long time, it is better to dress accordingly. The clothing ensures that less moisture evaporates from the skin. A good hat and scarf can help you with that.
It is often thought that sun protection is not necessary for winter, because the sun does not shine. It is good to realize that UVA is present all year round. The UVA is less well filtered by the clouds and goes straight through, for example, the windows of a car, and clothing do not block all this radiation. Therefore, also protect your skin in the winter months with sunscreen. Also, keep in mind that reflection of UV radiation occurs with ice skating and snow. This reflection in the snow is about 80%.
This condition can worsen during the winter. Rosacea is a chronic skin condition with features such as flushing, redness, bumps, pimples, and dilated blood vessels. The skin can give a painful and burning sensation. One of the triggering factors in rosacea is the transition from cold to heat, but also, for example, exposure to sunlight. Skin with rosacea is often very sensitive.
If your skin worsens in the winter, visit one of the skin therapists for a consultation, several treatments are possible.
