Winter season has its own charm and challenges. We love to eat, make merry in the holiday season and then eat again! While the fun and frolic continue winter takes its toll on our skin. Harsh cold and dry weather can trigger an array of problems for any skin. And if you have ageing skin, you need to be extra cautious.
To understand the plethora of problems and its solutions, let’s begin with understanding the cold-weather culprits that can be held responsible for winter skin problems.
Known Winter Culprits
To name a few-
Air Heaters - Direct exposure to hot blow from the heater or the fireplace can make the skin dry by taking away the moisturizer.
Long Hot Showers – While there is no denying that hot showers in chilly weathers make winter life worthwhile, but they are not so friendly on the skin. These showers end up depleting the natural oils of the skin surface, leaving it dry and tight. As difficult it might be, try limiting the shower duration to 5-10 minutes.
Holiday Diet – Winter season means holidays. And we know holidays directly translate to oily, carb-saturated foods which affect your skin’s health.
Sun Exposure - Warm sun’s rays are ideal in winters, but cause damage to the skin, and accelerate ageing by causing forehead wrinkles, under-eye wrinkles, age spots and more.
Hydration is the best solution against wrinkles and retains the suppleness in the skin. We all have known how over-dried clothes wrinkle and lose their shape. Sadly, a similar phenomenon happens with our skin in winters. This state of wrinkling, if persist for a longer duration, gets converted into permanent creases. Stay calm! You need to moisturize it well, by not just applying on the face but locking the moisture inside. The best way to do so is by following Satliva’s beauty regime, which includes everything from washing your face to locking the moisture with face cream, body butter, and body oil.
