Autumn not only shines in bright colours; it also brings frosty temperatures and dark fog. The cold season with all its facets is particularly demanding on the fine skin on your face and hands. The constant contrast between ice-cold temperatures and warm, dry heating air are a recurring "climate change" for your skin. It therefore becomes irritated, reddened and often very dry.
Find here a few useful tips on how to care for your skin through the cold season without much effort!
Why does skin always get so dry when it gets cold? This is because our sebum glands produce less of the protective film of fat in icy temperatures. Dry heating air also removes moisture from the skin. At this time in particular, it is particularly important to add a few small aids to your care routine. Use a moisturising face mask or nourishing facial serum regularly. Adapt your care products to the condition of your skin. For example, very dry skin needs a very rich moisturiser. Avoid care products with a high water content (these are more suitable for the hot months).
Dab instead of rubbing
After cleaning, dry your face and body with gentle dabbing movements and always use a clean, soft towel. We recommend a microfibre washcloth for your face.
Clean, but be careful!
Dry and sensitive skin often reacts to aggressive cleaning agents with skin irritations such as redness, burning and feelings of tension. Since the skin barrier has already been weakened by the cold, it is advisable to use a gentle cleansing lotion. Above all, stay away from toner with alcohol or aggressive peelings.
Lukewarm - your skin likes that
In autumn and winter, hot bubble baths or long, hot showers are particularly tempting, but this can be exactly the reason why your skin is irritated. The naturally protective grease film is attacked by the hot water. Try to take a lukewarm shower and use mild shower gels for sensitive skin.
Counteract the “climate change” from cold to warm and put wet towels on your heater. Special humidifiers ensure optimal humidity and prevent the feeling of very dry and stuffy air.
