Winter Skin

Winter Skin
It's that time of year again when the temperature drops and cold winds, central heating and low humidity can dry skin out, leaving it vulnerable to itchiness and flaking. It can also aggravate conditions such as eczema and dermatitis.
Dry skin typically experiences a breakdown of the skin barrier functions due to inflammation, as well as a build-up of dead skin cells. The number one solution is to keep skin well hydrated.
Internal hydration
Eat plenty of essential fatty acids (EFAs), particularly omega-3 (found in avocado and oily fish) and omega-6 (found in nuts, wholegrains and flaxseed oil), which keep skin hydrated and clarified from within.
Topical relief
Check your skincare regimen!
You will need to be using a gentle cleanser that won't strip the skin, followed by a quality moisturiser that will dose skin with lipids and reinforce its protective barrier.
It is vital to exfoliate weekly to slough away the build-up of dead skin cells and by doing so you will allow your products to penetrate deeper.
When skin is cold it doesn't function as well, so the natural shedding process slows down. Products can become less effective, as the barrier of dead cells prevents absorption.
It is imperative to be using a cosmeceutical range at this time as it will penetrate down deep within the epidermis to really combat dryness and dehydration as opposed to an over the counter product that will only work on the superficial layers of the skin.
The best range for you to be using at this time of year is the Image Skincare Vital C range.
This range is specifically designed for environmentally damaged, dry/dehydrated, sensitive/rosacea-prone skin types. A rich blend of natural botanicals and anti-oxidants soothes and protects the skin.
