Soft materials ’will prevent inflammation of sore skin’
While using natural beauty products can help soothe irritated skin and hydrate a dry, flaky complexion, it is worthwhile choosing soft materials that will not inflame skin on cold winter days.
According to Kimberley Carter of the British Association of Dermatologists, a downpour can not only make us feel miserable, it can harm our skin’s natural barrier function.
"Wet, soggy clothing can chafe the skin, leaving it looking red and sore," she pointed out.
"Protect your skin with warm clothing whilst outside and try to choose soft materials that won’t scratch or irritate your skin. If the rain makes your clothes damp, ensure that you change into something dry as soon as possible and don’t leave wet clothes in contact with your skin, to prevent irritation or chafing."
Ms Carter also noted that moving from wet, cold environments into warm, dry ones can be bad for our complexion, leading to blood vessels in the skin rapidly changing size to account for the fluctuating temperature.
To avoid looking "flushed and weather beaten", the skin expert advised avoiding sudden changes in temperature wherever possible.
Your skin might also need extra hydration to stop the flakiness, so invest in some herbal oils to give quick relief.
Avocado oil and olive oil are particularly useful in rehydrating skin because they are rich in antioxidants and fatty acids. Olive oil is a good emollient too, keeping water in the cells where it is needed and allowing damaged cells on the surface of the skin to repair themselves.
If you think your dry skin could be a result of a fungal infection, try adding a few drops of tea tree oil to a carrier oil and applying the mixture to the affected area. This should prevent cracking and acts as a disinfectant to keep bacteria out of broken skin.
