Winter Skin Tips

___________________________________________________________________

Cool winter temperatures and low humidity levels, combined with hot showers and soap-based products can pull moisture from the skin. On the surface, skin looks dull, feels tight, dry and itchy. At a microscopic level a lack of moisture and oil weakens your skin’s natural protective barrier, leaving it susceptible to invading chemicals causing redness, irritation and sensitivity.

Concerned with changing skin in the cold winter weather? Here's some skin wisdom.

Why can skin become dry and itchy during the winter months?

Dehydration and dryness are very common skin concerns during the winter months: these conditions reflect a loss of barrier lipids that help keep the skin hydrated, resulting in flakiness and often itchiness. Overly dry skin cannot protect nerve endings in the skin, leading to skin responses. Dehydrated skin means there is a disruption of the barrier integrity, which may also result in ingredients and microorganisms penetrating the skin, causing adverse effects such as stinging or itching.

Layering on extra hydration during colder seasons will restore lost moisture and relieve dry, thirsty skin.

Start with Multi-Active Toner, a refreshing toner that rehydrates with Aloe Vera and Cucumber. Mist over skin after cleansing to reduce tightness and lock in moisture.

Follow with Skin Hydrating Booster, a super-fluid that hydrates tissues and plumps parched skin. Apply 6 to 10 drops directly to skin, or mix with your favorite Dermalogica Moisturiser.

For an added boost, apply Skin Hydrating Masque 2 to 3 times a week after cleansing to calm, infuse skin with protective antioxidant vitamins, and restore moisture for fewer fine lines.

Remember, think layers when its comes to keeping skin healthy all winter long.

Exposure to skin-damaging factors such as sun, cold winds, air conditioning, central heating and low temperatures can dry out skin and excessive heat or cold are common triggers of sensitised skin. Low humidity is also a trigger of sensitivity. Our microclimate is just as important – what we expose our skin to in our home, cars, offices and airplanes changes daily, resulting in varying levels of sensitivity. For instance, we may be inadvertently sensitising our skin on a typical winter day, when we move from cold, dry winds outside to dry forced air heating inside.

Both dry and dehydrated skin can experience:

Irritation, inflammation, itchiness and sensitivity

Slight to severe flaking and scaling

A feeling of tightness or tautness

During the winter months particularly leading up to the festive season and beyond, some people may follow the trend of fat-free diets. These can deprive our bodies of skin-friendly Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs). This deficiency can result in chronic itching, dryness, scaling, thinning and can lead to an imbalance in prostaglandins (chemical messengers that do many things, such as control inflammation).

Excess intake of alcoholic beverages and certain medications (such as nasal decongestants) can also contribute to dry skin or dehydrated skin. One of the biggest consequences of dry, dehydrated skin is an increase in sensitivity, as dryness and dehydration are precursors to sensitised skin.

I first started using dermalogica, in October 2019 and it was recommended by a new beauty salon in Bury St Edmunds , and bought many products recommended by Halcyon days, Hopefully they will still be in business , after the corona virus , as I have massage there too

Very happy with my purchase. Products arrived in very good condition, within the estimated time. I was kept up to date all along. Prices are the best online that you can find from a Dermalogica authorised retailer. I reccommend their services and yes, I will buy again.
