It’s here: on 22nd December, winter has officially began and, even if the good news is that from now on day light hours will be increasing, we’ll still have to fight the coldest temperatures and the frozen wind. For some of you, there’s nothing more magical than this: fireplace lighted, couch, cozy blankets, hot chocolate, Netflix and white snow falling upon our roofs.
The bad thing is that these cold temperatures harm our skin, especially our hands and face cause it is exposed to dehydration and accelerated skin aging problems.
This type of weather causes blood capillaries to shrink and that is exactly what keeps our organism from working properly, making our skin finer and more sensitive. Low temperatures alter hydrolipidic protective barrier causing a strong dehydration. Also, the continue variation from low to hot temperatures creates changes that are harmful for our skin, such as cuperose and rednesses.
Finally, risk having chapped, inelastic and cracked skin is real, given that a minor blood flow limits collagen and elastin production.
Sounds like the beginning of a catastrophe, right? So…
