How to take care of the skin in the cold? winter is around the corner and the cold has arrived! Temperatures will continue to fall and the climate will be the same as the season in which we find ourselves. In order to survive properly, we will have to change some of our beauty routines and adapt them to the current situation.
To show off our best face it is important that we take care of ourselves inside and out. During the winter days are shorter, there is less light and the whole environment encourages you to enjoy the comfort of our sofa, a blanket and a hot chocolate. All this is very inspiring, but this time of year has some drawbacks, and one of them has to do with our skin. It is common to appear or accentuate dryness of skin and mucous membranes, tightness, redness, cutis, etc. All this is due to the change of temperature, lack of humidity, central heating, reduction of water consumption because we are not as thirsty.
Often the simplest thing is usually the most important thing and in the matter of skin and mucous membranes this has to do with hydration and protection:
- It is important not to put the heating too high (at about 22º) because the higher it is the more we favor the evaporation of the water and consequently producing dryness and tightness in the skin.
- Even if we do not feel thirsty, it is important that we drink a lot of water and eat foods rich in vitamins and antioxidants that help us fight external aggressions.
- Protect your face and body with a good moisturizer and, if possible, one containing a sun protection factor. This is one of the secrets of Japanese beauty care, using creams that protect throughout the year. Here lies the secret of their unblemished and perfect complexion.
- Finally, for people with extreme dryness in any part of the body (eyes, mouth, vagina) or skin in general, it is advisable to resort to the use of food supplements that help treat the problem from the inside, nourishing in depth the mucous and dermis of the whole organism.
