07 Dec Common skin problem’s during winter
The Winter season is a relief for some people. But, there are few side effects for people with sensitive skin. A change in climate can cause excessive dryness, itching, and spreading of certain skin conditions. A change in your skincare regime to relieve the symptoms may be necessary.
Common skin conditions aggravated by cold weather.
Rosacea: This is a long-term skin condition with symptoms including facial redness, swelling, itching, and burning. For most people, rosacea can be well controlled with the correct skincare and avoidance of causes. The dryness caused by turning on the heater, or standing in front of a fireplace can cause a flare in rosacea symptoms. In addition, exposure to cold wind seems to be particularly problematic. Gentle cleansers, moisturizers, sunscreens, and prescription products can help reduce the symptoms and appearance of rosacea.
Psoriasis: This condition also occurs in cold weather. Symptoms of psoriasis are dry, itchy, patchy, and rough skin. To help ease symptoms, you can try using less hot water when you bathe so that your skin does not become overly dry. Applying moisture after taking a bath helps to lock in moisture. Many times, a prescription is necessary to keep psoriasis under control.
Eczema: Eczema is a common condition that causes itchy, dry, inflamed, and sometimes break out skin. You can protect your skin in cold weather by wearing comfortable clothes that don’t itch.
