It's cold and wet outside, and especially dry inside thanks to the heating. No wonder our skin goes crazy in the cold season. We'll show you the best way to take care of your skin now!
Many people struggle with skin problems, especially in autumn and winter. Outside the air is suddenly wet and cold, but inside the rooms are heated and particularly dry. The skin is therefore exposed to constant change. The result is reddened skin, flaking and pimples. Winter acne is not uncommon.
How does winter acne develop?
Male hormones are the main cause of acne on the face, back or cleavage. They stimulate the production of skin oil, the surface of the skin increased horn particles and the sebum glands clog. Bacteria have found an optimal breeding ground and can spread. This quickly leads to inflammation and purulent abscesses. Thick clothing, scarves, and hats also contribute to winter acne. Try to give your skin a break as often as possible by wearing light clothing every now and then.
What can I do against it?
Visible sunlight has a positive impact on our skin. Since we are less often outdoors in winter, it is important that you go out regularly. Long walks in the fresh air and in the sun are good for the skin in the cold season.
You should also drink as much water or herbal tea as possible and boost your immune system. This is, so to speak, a care regimen from the inside.
How do I take care of my skin in winter?
Just like clothing, skin care should also be adapted to the season. It is essential to clean the skin with the right care products. If the skin is sensitive, you should use products that do not contain preservatives or fragrances. Cleaning and care products with special substances that have an antibacterial effect and remove keratinization are more suitable.
