We know very well the damage produced by the sun on our skin. The same with the deterioration caused by chlorinated pool water or sea salt on the beach. But do we know how this affects the cold, wind and sudden temperature changes in our face, lips, knees or hands?

Winter is perhaps regarded as a harmless season in which we can hardly find a negative factor. Moreover, as we are more clothed and with almost no skin exposed to the outside, unless considerations have with it, the so-called third lung.

This indicates the lack of information regarding how we care for our skin during the year, regardless of the season for which we are going through or whether or not the sun over our heads.


"The cold makes the skin dry, so you have to focus on hydrates skin care to combat this drought," he says, while recalling that, despite being winter, we must not forget the sunscreen.

Therefore, you have to choose a good moisturizer and thus must lead components "humectants" that attract water into the skin, such as glycerin, propylene glycol, urea, sodium lactate, etc. and components with occlusive effect, which act as barriers to prevent epidermal water loss, such as lanolin, silicone and its derivatives, and so on.

As for when to start to exercise extreme care, said it advisable to have skin in the winter is about to begin in late fall to use moisturizers.


Women who want to reduce superficial wrinkles "increase" with the low temperatures, suggest you use cosmetics containing hydroxy acids, retinol and / or vitamin C. "The drought stressed will make wrinkles more noticeable, as they spend the winter not to increase the skin well hydrated," he adds.

Moreover, this expert advises adding oral supplements to the diet group with antioxidant vitamins A, B, C and E, which, although not reverse aging, do improve their appearance. "The agency did not have time to eliminate free radicals, so we have to feed on substances that help us to eliminate it," he says.

You should avoid possible sudden changes in temperature, i.e. move from an atmosphere heated by heating the open air, with very low temperatures, as this increases the possibility of occurrence of dilated vessels with unattractive redness.

In this regard, special attention is paid to the skin of the face, which is perhaps that may affect the visibility of this problem. He notes that "we must bear in mind that facial blood vessels when we enter a very cold environment shrink and expand with heat, that for a person without problems may not have big problems, but if you have skin problems can encourage them to stay permanently dilated. "

Finally, it indicates that throughout the year to maintain good skin condition, decrease alcohol intake and consumption of snuff, beside the cold, decrease blood supply thereby increasing skin redness and dehydration.
