Winter Skin and How To Combat It.
Tight, dry skin, feels like it's cracking, redness, flakiness, itchiness, spots! Inflammation and irritation. dull, grey looking skin. Even worse...increased Acneic activity!
Winter Skin can be any or all of the above!
What is happening?
Harsh winter weather, the cold outdoors versus overheating indoors, low humidity versus high humidity, misty cold rain, hail stones, wind cutting into the skin on your cheekbones.
Our natural acid mantle is about 5.5 ph, but this natural secretion of sebum to protect our skin is easily upset causing our skins to be too 'open' quite literally the gaps between the skin cells allow water to escape, (dehydration) and irritants to get in (sensitivity). Then the inflammatory response kicks in and releases histamines, creating itchy sensations, redness, skin flakes and even broken skin or increased acne.
It can exacerbate inflammatory skin diseases such as rosacea, eczema, ichthyoisis and psoriasis.
