We all know seasonal changes affect the skin. Colder temperatures, winds, central heating and dry air reduce the moisture levels in the skin, leading to dehydration, roughness and flakey skin. It can also make conditions like eczema, roseacea and psoriasis worse.
Another factor that can affect the hydration levels of the skin is, sadly, age. The older a person is, the lower the levels of progesterone and oestrogen are, which in turn can produce dry skin, even in people who have never had it before.
The temptation is to dig out the richer, more intense moisturiser during the winter months, but this isn’t always the best idea. In fact, it can make it worse! Rich creams can fool the skin, causing it to stop it’s own natural moisturising process. The best answer is to use the right products and enhance with boosters. You might find your skin appears happy, but this will only be a temporary reaction, once you stop using the richer, heavier creams, you will be left with skin that’s even dryer than before.
Another top tip? Don’t scrub! It seems to make sense, to slough away all that rough skin that is sitting on your face but with exfoliation we remove the skins fine protective layer and water can escape easily. This can result in your skin working harder to restore it’s natural moisturising factors or maybe even increase them to make up for the loss. So, put down the granular scrub and step away!
Other top tips to help deal with dehydrated skin are:
- Make sure you are eating a good diet, full of healthy fats like avocado and nuts to keep the skin moisturised from the inside out.
- Switch to an oil based cleanser which is kinder to the skin in the colder months, and it won’t strip it of it’s natural lipds.
- Make sure you’re drinking plenty of water. Tea and coffee might be warming but they won’t go towards the moisture levels, in fact, they can reduce it even more. Try warm water with honey and lemon if you find you’re struggling to drink enough.
- Try adding an omega oil supplement to your day, like the Skin Omega+ to safeguard those essential fatty acid levels and minimise water loss.
