The cold weather can cause havoc for the skin and with Christmas getting closer it comes at the worst possible time, leaving skin looking dry and vulnerable to a host of associated problems.
The cold temperatures mean that there is less moisture in the air, so water is lost from the skin when outdoors, meaning that skin dries out more quickly than usual. Staying indoors is no remedy as central heating tends to have a similar effect.
The loss of water from skin cells is what leads to dryness and skin can become sore and chapped.
Some people find that this causes other, more serious problems which are not just aesthetic:
- Acne flare ups can be triggered by cold weather
- Eczema is sensitive to extreme cold and can become more difficult to manage
- Facial veins may appear on exposed areas such as cheeks
- Rosacea can get worse in the cold weather
Cold Weather Skin Care
The first step to take is to review skin care. In more extreme weather, a different type of product can make a big difference, providing additional protection against the elements.
Cosmeceutical products go a step further with active ingredients which work to promote skin cell renewal and tackle more challenging issues such as acne, rosacea and even eczema.
Mulberry House Clinic & Laser Centre now have many clients using ZO Skin Health Prescription Skincare which has delivered significant improvement for some very difficult skin conditions.
If the skin is looking lackluster or damaged, then a non-surgical treatment can be very helpful. Treatments to consider:
- Laser skin treatments
- Chemical peel
- LED skin therapy
- Profhilo injections
