We are approaching the winter months and perhaps your skin is already affected by the wind and rain of the autumn. The skin is easily affected by weather change and relative to the rest of the body the facial skin is very exposed. People often feel that the skin dries, blushes and feels tight. Thus it is very important to take extra care of your skin and apply protection during the cold months. Here are some important tips on how to prevent and avoid sad winter skin:
1. A nice, long and hot bath …
… you shouldn’t take too often if you have a tendency to dry skin. The hot water removes the skin’s natural oils and makes it more vulnerable. Hence, take a shorter bath or lower the temperature. Remember to protect your entire body after the bath with a good body lotion.
We recommend SIGR Bodylotion for optimal protection after your bath.
2. Strengthen your skin
It is a very good idea to give your skin extra care already now – even if the thermometer has not yet reached below the freezing point. It’s easier to prevent than to rescue an already dry and itchy skin. Do this by applying a good balm that protects your skin from losing moisture and drying out. It is important that the products you use are based on natural, nutritious ingredients, so you don’t risk drying the skin further. In addition, the natural ingredients add important vitamins that strengthen your skin and maintain the skin’s elasticity.
We recommend daily use of SIGR Face Balm.
3. Water, water, water
Remember to keep the skin healthy from the inside as well. The fluid balance affects the entire body – also the skin! So if you want to both look and be healthy, it’s a good idea to drink plenty of water.
4. Indoor climate
It is important to keep a good indoor climate in your home. You can ensure that by regularly airing your home. Lack of ventilation results in a dry indoor climate, which has a drying effect on the skin.
