In winter, take care of your skin in a special way with a daily cleansing and hydration routine and nourishing and regenerating products. (care of your skin during winter)
The typical winter phenomena, such as low temperatures and blizzards, are an attack on our skin. The cold causes vasoconstriction, so the capillaries contract, less oxygen reaches the skin and the surface becomes dry and red, also creating a feeling of tightness. The hot-cold contrasts don’t help either, as do the elevated heating. The effect is dry skin without luminosity, which urgently requires hydration.
To these external factors, we must add this winter the effect of the masks. Wearing the face covered for several hours a day is causing localized acne problems in many people. They are added complications that force us to take measures and use suitable products that restore the balance of our skin.
If you don’t know what remedies to use, in Cantabria Labs you will find an extensive catalog of creams and solutions at affordable prices. They are essential products that you will have to use daily and that will accompany you throughout the winter.
Intensive hydration and repair products:
The main weapon against the rigors of winter on your skin is hydration. Look for special creams and serums for this purpose, because they help combat dryness, soothe irritation and protect against the effects of cold. Soothing balms and masks are also marketed.
In addition to moisturizing creams, a cell regenerating or repairing product must be applied to the skin. Among Cantabria Labs products there are repair oils for very dry and irritated skin, which will help you regain elasticity. Another product that you will need is an exfoliating cream for the face. It is highly recommended to remove dead and dry skin and will prepare the epidermis for the application of the moisturizer.
The same advice on caring for facial skin is extended to other parts of the body also exposed to the elements, such as the hands and lips. Apply hand cream several times a day and wear lip balm whenever there is wind or temperatures drop sharply. Although masks are reducing the effect of chapped lips this year, it doesn’t hurt to protect yourself.
How to prevent the effects of cold:
Apart from cosmetic treatments, there are some tips that you can apply to prevent the effects of cold. Avoid contact with direct sources of heat, as they will dry out the skin. The same goes for showers that are too hot; the ideal temperature for your skin ranges from 35 to 38 degrees.
Although in winter it seems that the sun heats less, try to apply protection creams and try to integrate the new daily routines into your life: skin cleansing every night, hydration, hand cream several times a day and lip balm.
Acne mask treatments:
Prolonged use of masks is causing rashes, itching and acne. Among the people who are suffering the most from these collateral effects are health groups, public employees, retail and restaurant personnel, and urban transport drivers.
The problem comes from the lack of perspiration and sweating, so it is important to cleanse the skin with purifying products, apply a soothing toner on the affected area and moisturize. There are also specific treatments for acne, which will provide localized care.
