“What is your skin trying to tell you? Often the skin is a metaphor for deeper issues and a way for your body to send up a red flag to warn you that all is not well underneath.”
- Dr. Judyth Reichenberg
If you are one of those skin concerned people, you must have noticed your skin responding differently to the changing weather. Now, if you have noticed, the skin reacts differently to the winter season. One of the biggest signs is flaky and dry skin.
No wonder you must be in love with enjoying the snow while sipping coffee in your backyard. But cold air and low humidity levels taking a toll on your skin texture often make you drop such plans. The Winter season is common to make you cover your skin in moisture. Another major skin trouble in the winter season is lesser sheer glow due to no moisture.
What are common signs of dry skin?
- Burning skin
- Skin cracks
Above all of them, the biggest issue for skin in the winter season is skin dryness. In medical terms, this condition is called ‘Xerosis”. The symptoms may vary, but all in all, the condition is severe thus should be considered seriously. If you fail to maintain a radiant glow on your skin even during the harsh winter season, the best way is to pick custom skin care practices and bring the much-required change.
Here’s all you need to practice.
#1 – Moisturizing – The more you keep your skin moisturized, the more it will glow throughout the winter season. Whenever you wash your face, your skin gets rid of all moisture, making your skin frizzy and dry. This may seem like a blessing in the summer season but not in the winter. Your skin requires a sufficient amount of natural oils to stay hydrated in the winter season. Therefore, apply a good amount of moisturizer right after washing your face.
#2 – Sunscreen is a MUST – Even if it’s winter, you need to apply sunscreen. This is because even less sunlight is harmful to your skin. Harmful UV rays are still dangerous to stress your skin cells, ruining their texture. Therefore, avoid skipping in the winter season.
#3 – Believe in overnight treatments – It’s the best time and approach to revitalizing your skin from scratch. Wash and moisturize your skin before going to bed. This will continue to lock the required moisture throughout the night. If required, adjust your entire skincare routine accordingly and use some creams with additional moisture content.
Pro tip – These changes work the best only when you have continued practicing them forever. Once you stop, the skin begins to show reversed results.
The final word –
It’s common to experience flaky and dry skin as the winter approaches. The most commonly affected body areas include – hands, feet, face, etc. Here, the only key is to keep the skin hydrated. For this, using some skincare products accompanied by some skincare practices will be the best way to achieve results faster.
