Any temperature changes lead to the disruption of the balance of the skin.
The dry cold air and wind deprive the skin of necessary moisture, as a result of disturbed natural health of the skin. That is why in the winter time many the skin peels off and irritated, the redness appear… is it Possible to avoid it?
Responsible Executive Director, research and development, Clinique, Dr. Paolo Giacomoni:
• With minus temperatures, use a soothing emollient creams for sensitive skin. They create on the face an invisible protective barrier that prevents cracking, redness, etc.
• It is wrong to think that moisturizer is relevant only in the summer. Moisturize the skin! This will help to support the work of its systems to an optimal level, and reduce its sensitivity to external aggressors.
• Don’t forget that in winter your skin needs daily protection from the sun even on the coldest day of the year, there is a risk to get sunburned, so apply a moisturizer with SPF.
