Our skin is the first barrier against weather conditions it suffers most from the time change.
Sometimes wearing gloves and warm clothes is not enough to avoid cracking, itching and dry skin.
How does it affect the status of some factors typical for the winter and how to care for your skin?
As cold is the weather do not over-heating of your home. Warm air dry your room and leads to dehydration of the skin.
Ventilate often and consume plenty of fluids .
Avoid hot and long shower. During the winter season as it sounds nice warm one in the bathroom, hot water can further dry the skin and make it susceptible to eczema.
A hot shower is totally unadvisable for those suffering from atopic dermatitis, psoriasis and other skin problems.
Long stay in the shower is also not recommended in winter. The longer you are in the closed and steam room, as dehydration of the skin is greater.
We can not stop to wash our hands, but we can use a mild non-drying soap, unscented. This will prevent the protective barrier of the skin.
It is recommended to use soap, specially formulated for sensitive and allergy-prone skin.
