Hydration in winter and why is it so important for her?

10 tips for well-hydrated skin

It’s early in the year and winter is starting to feel more and more like it’s here.

As the days get colder, the air also changes and becomes drier, frostier and its humidity low.

It is especially important to choose the right skin care during this period to protect it from dryness, itching and other undesirable consequences.

Winter seems to be merciless to the skin, outside the cold makes it rough and the heat indoors drinks up the moisture and makes it dry.

Hydration of the skin is an important process where the optimal level of moisture in the skin must be maintained. When the skin is well hydrated, it is healthy, soft smooth, but for this to happen, water retention in the skin cells must be supported.

When the skin is properly hydrated, it is more resistant to harmful external influences such as wind, cold, sun and dirt.

Maintaining optimal hydration is a key element of skin care and can help prevent problems such as dry skin, irritation and wrinkles.

The use of different methods, whether external or internal, lead to good results in the care during the winter season.

Here are 10 tried and tested tips to help you care for your skin on cold winter days.

1. Proper skin cleansing:

Try to incorporate cleansers without harsh ingredients and fragrances into your feminine routine, as they can help retain moisture in the skin. While washed soap, improperly selected, is likely to worsen the condition of the skin by causing it to dry and itch.

2. Using moisturizing products:

Apply a moisturizing product after washing your face, and body. Creams, lotions, oils and other skin care products can be formulated with ingredients that help retain moisture. Therefore, carefully select products that contain hyaluronic acid and moisture-containing ingredients.

3. Daily exfoliation:

Incorporate a weekly light exfoliation into your routine to remove dead skin cells and improve the penetration of the moisturizing products you’ll apply afterwards.

Be careful when exfoliating your face, be gentle and don’t rub the product in forcefully.

4. Select appropriate cosmetics for the winter season:

Match your skin care to the season and your skin type!

Many astringent products contain alcohol, which further dries out the skin, and the goal is for your skin to retain its natural oils.

5. Use warm, not hot water:

Avoid hot showers or baths as these can also remove the skin’s natural oils. Instead, use warm water with a normal shower duration.

6. Sun protection, masks and serums:

Sun protection is especially important to use not only in the summer season, but all year round. Even when it’s cloudy, UV rays pass through the clouds and reflect on your skin, and snow reflects a large percentage of the sun’s rays so your skin is at risk.

Visit a specialized beauty studio regularly, where a professional will take care of cleansing and deep hydration of the skin with a procedure designed for this.

At home, apply hydrating masks or serums at least once or twice a week to provide extra care for your skin.

7. Use a humidifier in the room:

Place a humidifier in your home or office to maintain an optimal level of humidity in the air, gives a good reflection on the skin.

8. Avoid standing outside in strong winds:

Cold wind can contribute to dry skin. If possible, protect your face from direct wind with a scarf or other accessory.

9. Supplement with omega-3 fatty acids:

You may want to consult your dermatologist or medical aesthetician about whether to add omega-3 fatty acids to your skin care routine, as they can help hydrate the skin from within.

10. Drinking enough water and eating healthy:

Internal hydration is just as important as external hydration. Drinking enough water helps maintain the hydration of cells, including those in the skin. A diet rich in vitamins and minerals, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids provides the nutrients needed for skin health.
