The cold, sudden weather changes, wind and even smog are the real enemies of your skin in winter! The face skin, being constantly exposed to such factors, is inevitably the part that suffers the most.
During the winter the skin is put to the test: it is usually dry, cracked and dull and is more vulnerable to possible skin problems, such as redness and irritation.
Taking care of the face is an operation to be carried out regularly; the arrival of winter greatly affects the greater attention that must be given to the beauty routine of the face.
H2 What happens to the skin in the cold?
Our body to protect itself from low temperatures reduces the thickness of blood vessels causing a lower oxygenation of tissues.
With the arrival of cold:
- The skin slows the activity of cellular exchange, becoming dry, chapped and opaque.
- The surface hydrolipidic film is altered. The cold causes a decrease in the production of fat (sebum) and water that have the task of moisturizing and protecting the epidermis acting as a natural barrier.
Temperature changes have, therefore, a negative influence on the integrity and firmness of the skin tissue.
The effects of the cold are well known:
- Irritation, redness and loss of elasticity, particularly in the area of the cheekbones.
- Burning sensation.
- Dry and chapped skin.
- Increased sensitivity.
- The formation of small cracks or cuts in the most delicate points of the face.
