In every season, there are some issues we need to pay attention for our skin health.
During the winter time, our skin is exposed to cold weather, hence gets dry, and some conditions related to dry skin might occur. Therefore, it is highly important to moisturize our skin with a suitable moisturizer, and to clean it with moisturizing cleaners.
Some physical factors such as frequent bathing with hot water may also dry our skin.
Therefore, we can prevent skin drying by taking warm and short showers -5 to 10 minutes at maximum.
We can prefer mosturizing cleaners instead of shower gels.
It is of the utmost importance that those, children or adults, who have a tendency for atopy should moisturize their skin with suitable moisturizers right after the shower.
No matter how much we care, we know very well that some skin types are sensitive against these effects. What kind of cold-related problems can we encounter?
We can often see problems like itching and eczema caused by dry skin especially with individuals who have a tendency for atopy. Such people need to be more careful to protect their skin health during winter time.
Are our current conditions such as eczema and acne affected by the changes of weather?
Yes, that is possible. Patients with eczema, rosacea, and psoriasis might suffer from inflammation. Many think that their itching and rash is a temporary condition until the time that the quality of their lives and their physical appearance are negatively affected.
In such cases, they try to find solutions for their problems using unreliable information gathered from various sources.
When we attempt to cure a disease with wrong information, the problem usually gets worse. It even may trigger some other problems. Therefore, we must see a Dermatologist so that the findings can be correctly evaluated, and the disease can be effectively cured. Besides, not every cure is effective in every season.
