Unlike Westeros, our world is afflicted with climate change, which has shortened the duration of and transition to winter. If you aren’t careful, winter can sneak up and pounce on your skin.
Low humidity, low temperatures, cold winds, and more are going to give your skin and immune system a hard time. That is unless you’re prepared for winter’s onslaught. There are many steps you can take to protect and heal your skin from the effects of winter. Consult your skincare products or buy some new ones to protect your skin with these tips.
One of the worst effects of winter is skin dryness. Not only does this affect your appearance, but it can also be quite painful. If you’ve ever experienced chapped lips due to the low humidity in the winter months, you’ll recognize how painful dryness can be. Staying hydrated can deflect the dryness that comes with the winters.
If you’re dealing with chapped lips, drink some water and apply petroleum jelly to prevent them from drying. Besides that, shift to a thicker and richer moisturizer, like one that’s layered with organic oils, to protect your skin further. As dryness becomes more likely, you need to adopt products that accommodate the excess dryness.
Chances are that you prefer hot showers during cold weather. It’s not rocket science: people prefer feeling neither too hot nor too cold. While what’s to follow may sound counterintuitive, you should still consider it: don’t take hot showers. This doesn’t mean you can’t take warm showers, but excessively hot showers, while they feel great, can damage your skin.
Moreover, hot showers can worsen your acne, especially if your skin is prone to it. They can also cause dry and flaky skin, which affects your appearance. Swap the hot showers for warm showers for a skin-friendly solution to the cold.
Most of your skin-related issues can be traced back to the low humidity levels in the winter months. Warm showers, staying hydrated, using rich moisturizers, and more help your skin adapt to the low humidity. Alternatively, you could address the root cause of the problem: the low humidity levels. Running a humidifier will increase the moisture in the air, thereby keeping your skin hydrated and healthy.
