National Winter Skin Relief Day
National Winter Skin Relief Day, January 8, reminds us of all the ways we can protect our skin from being brittle under the harshest of conditions as winter approaches. The amount of moisture in the air is reduced by lower temperatures outside and rising thermostats inside. Our skin is the first thing you will notice.
Joshua Zeichner, MD, Director of Cosmetic & Clinical Research at The Mount Sinai Hospital, makes a few tips to help us keep our skin hydrated through the winter.
Winter skincare tips
Avoid taking those long, hot showers as the weather comes. The heat strips the skin of its natural oils (called ceramides) and causes inflammation. The skin cells will swell, and when they dry, they become loose like poorly grouted tiles and crack.
Rather, take shorter, lukewarm showers and use gentle cleaners. Harsh soaps with surfactants and claims of pH balance can be drying on the skin. And don't scrub! Be generous and let the water and lather do the dirty work.
With a soft towel after bathing, pat the skin dry. Rubbing causes more irritation and inflammation. Add a moisturizer with the door closed to keep the humidity in.
Layers are best for dressing. Natural fibers should be used in the next layer. Compared to synthetic fabrics, soft fabrics such as flannel and cotton cause little to no irritation. Layers are also more effective against cold weather.
Winter skin relief comes in a variety of ways. Our skin needs hydration at night, as well. With a cool-mist humidifier, you will not only hydrate your skin but will also provide more restful sleep.
