In colder, drier climates, your skin’s water content evaporates at a rapid pace, leaving you with a brittle, irritated and flakey appearance if gone unmitigated. Indoor heating’s low levels of humidity draw moisture out of your skin even more extremely, so with few sources of relief during the winter months, it’s crucial to prepare, reinforce and protect your skin with the right products.
It’s important to remember that damage inflicted on our skin can have lifelong consequences. While the immediate dehydration of your winter skin is only temporary, the skin sensitivity and irritation that accompanies excessively dry skin often precede more serious and sometimes permanent skin conditions, like eczema, stubborn inflammation and cracking. Low moisture levels in the skin also inhibit the natural cellular processes that keep our skin working for itself, leading to problems such as hyperpigmentation, clogged pores and increased signs of aging, to name a few. We have to support our skin’s health and needs by intervening where we can, protecting ourselves from winter's harsh gaze.
