Chilly conditions and your skin: some golden rules
Though spring isn't too far away now, the chances are you're still facing a wintery climate, unless you've managed to go on a lovely winter holiday!
And if you haven't yet made moves to help your skin through what is many people's least favourite season, there's still time to follow some of the golden rules of cold climate skin care…
Consider a different moisturiser
When winter comes, it could be time to bring out a different moisturiser.
"A lot of people find they might need to move to a slightly more creamy cleanser and a slightly heavier moisturiser," explained the International Dermal Institute's Victoria Evans last year.
She suggested that people would be on to look-out for "more protective salve-like products" either to use on their cheeks or simply their lips.
They might be especially likely to hunt-out such winter-appropriate products if they're commuting to work and find themselves standing in the cold at train stations regularly.
"You could look for slightly waxier products that we would describe as a salve or a protectant, to help the skin shield from the elements," she advised.
Use warm clothes as protection
People should give their skin some protection against the cold weather by wearing something warm when out and about, according to the British Association of Dermatologists' Kimberley Carter, also speaking last year.
She advised that people opt for soft fabrics for clothing, because these won’t irritate skin or scratch it.
Get rid of damp clothing
Ms Carter also recommended that when people get wet in the rain they should change into dry clothing as quickly as they are able to.
"Wet, soggy clothing can […] chafe the skin, leaving it looking red and sore," she said.
Protect yourself if you suffer from eczema
There are certain conditions, such as eczema, which may be exacerbated if your skin becomes dry during winter, according to Ms Carter.
"If you suffer with a dry skin condition make an extra effort to slap on plenty of moisturiser/emollient, especially after a shower or bath," she said.
