Summer disappeared quickly and the cold came upon us very fast. Within a week we went from wearing skirts and sunglasses to coats and scarves. This sudden change in weather can lead to skin damage, so you will need to amend your skincare routine when the seasons change. For winter, you should focus particularly on moisturizing, protecting and repairing.
Winter weather is very damaging to skin, due to the sudden temperature changes of being cold outside and warm inside. Central heating, wind and rain can all cause skin problems. So you need to restore balance to your skin. La Roche-Posay Hydraphase Intense UV Light (RRP €23.50) intensely hydrates your skin and also protects it from UVA and UVB to prevent signs of ageing.
Rough patches, cracks, flaking and tightness are all common skin problems during the cold weather, especially if you have sensitive skin. Try La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Baume B5 (RRP €12.50) to combat such irritations, so even harsh weather won’t damage your skin.
If you suffer from dry skin, you will be vulnerable to irritation from external factors, such as cold, rain and wind. It’s important to drink plenty of water during the winter to keep your body hydrated. We tend to drink less water during the colder months, however it is just as important for the skin in the winter. Hot drinks can be more appealing than cold ones during this time of year, but caffeine can dehydrate the skin. Try opting for decaffeinated tea or coffee, or herbal teas. A great product for keeping skin hydrated is Vichy Nutrilogie (€20.50) which will soothe skin for 24 hours.
All these products are available exclusive to pharmacies nationwide.
