Snowfall, strong wind and dry air… It is necessary to be careful against all these factors that threaten the health of the skin. The way to defend the skin from the negative effects of cold weather is through regular care and nutrition.
Choose your humidifier according to seasonal conditions
The moisture content of the skin may vary, especially during seasonal changes. The skin, which is adversely affected by UV rays in summer, darkens, tans, dries and wrinkles when winter comes. With the cooling of the air, the amount of water on the skin suddenly decreases. For this reason, it may be necessary to give a respite to the skin care products used in normal times. While only water-based moisturizers are sufficient in seasonal normals, it is necessary to use those with high oil content and reparative properties in cold weather.
Very hot water can ruin your skin and hair health.
During the winter months, the temperature of the bath water rises quite a bit. Washing with very hot water dries the skin and has a mattifying effect. Hot water is also harmful to the hair. It should be noted that the application of hot water, which dries the hair, mattifies it and increases its fragility, is extremely wrong.
Do not go out with wet hair
Going out with wet hair is one of the biggest mistakes made in winter. Contact of wet skin with cold air causes water loss in the middle of the cells and drying develops. As the cold air causes the veins to shrink, it also prevents the skin from being healthy. As a result of all these, a cold, dull and dry skin is formed; Along with the wind, the development of eczema with physical trauma is the subject of speech.
Consume carrots, apricots and tomatoes for healthy skin
Rich nutrition by vitamins and minerals brightens the skin and makes the skin look smoother. It is valuable to consume a lot of tomatoes, which contain vitamins A, C, E, and fresh carrots, apricots and beta carotene, which provide the necessary moistening in the subcutaneous tissue. Vitamins with high antioxidant values reduce the damage caused by cold air to the skin. For this reason, it is necessary to consume more fresh vegetables and fruits than usual during the winter months.
Consult a dermatologist when choosing a moisturizer
It is very important to moisturize not only the face but also the body during the winter months. Body moisturizer should be applied after each bath, the application should be done while the skin is now damp. Moisturizer and lotion should be taken in consultation with a dermatologist. Those containing elements such as vaseline, dimethicone, glycerin, linoleic acid and ceramide should be preferred.
Use sun-protecting works in winter too
In all seasons and conditions of daylight, the skin is exposed to UV rays and gradually ages. For aged or wrinkled skin, night creams with antioxidant properties, mask works and treatment systems to reduce the thickness of the skin should be preferred. The most effective treatment method that reduces skin thickness is chemical peeling and this treatment should definitely be done by dermatologists. Chemical peeling is not only an effective procedure for wrinkles, but also reduces pigmentation and acne caused by sun rays, and provides a lively, transparent view to the face. Before each season, according to the weather conditions affecting the skin, to apply and apply the necessary medical and cosmetic treatment methods; It both prevents possible damage and ensures a healthy and youthful appearance. Especially in sudden weather changes, it is necessary to act consciously.
