Skin in winter, some tips to take care of it

In the winter season, the skin tends to experience adverse conditions that can affect its health and appearance. In Doctors Lopez Clinic, we present five fundamental recommendations to take care of your skin in winter and keep it radiant and healthy.

Recommendations to take care of your skin in winter

  1. Intensive hydration. The cold and winds of winter can strip the skin of its natural moisture, leaving it dry and dehydrated. Apply moisturizing creams rich in ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and glycerin to keep skin nourished and protected. Opt for products specific to your skin type and use them regularly, paying special attention to areas prone to dryness, such as elbows and knees.
  2. Constant sun protection. Although the sun may not be as evident in winter, UV rays can still damage the skin, especially in a country like ours, where the sun is present all year round, especially in Andalusia. Use sunscreen with an adequate protection factor, even on cloudy days. This will not only prevent premature aging but will also protect your skin from adverse weather conditions.
  3. Shower with warm water, not hot. Hot baths can strip the skin of natural oils, contributing to dryness. Opt for warm showers and use gentle cleansers without harsh fragrances to avoid irritation. Gently pat skin dry after bathing and apply moisturizer immediately to lock in moisture.
  4. Take care of your lips. Lips tend to chap easily in winter. Use lip balms with emollient ingredients like shea butter or vitamin E to keep them soft and protected. Avoid licking your lips, as saliva can worsen dryness.
  5. Eat properly. A balanced diet rich in vitamins and antioxidants benefits skin health. Includes foods such as fruits, vegetables, fish and nuts, which provide essential nutrients to maintain the elasticity and luminosity of the skin. And drink water to stay hydrated.

By following these tips you can prepare your skin to face the challenges of winter and maintain its health and beauty. Incorporate these habits into your daily routine to enjoy radiant and protected skin all season long.

These simple but effective tips can make a big difference in the health of your skin during the colder months. However, if you experience persistent skin problems, it is always advisable to consult a specialist for specific guidance for your skin type, and in Doctors Lopez Clinic you can do it.
