Perhaps not the most masculine topic here in the blog, butskincare is as much a part of the lifestyle of the modern man aschic cars , stylish watches or sporty sneakers. Because in winter, our skin has to struggle with cold, dry air and constantly running heaters, which means that you are dehumidified and you get very dry skin quickly.
Dry skin is not very handsome and does not feel good, as I know from personal experience. Therefore it is necessary to take care this winter to avoid rough, scaly, even itchy dry skin. With the following five tips, you can achieve a lot to make dry skin on the face not to be a problem at all.
If you have experience with dry skin, and if you are able to help it, for example facial wrinkles or special skin care, I am happy if you share your experiences in the comments with me and the other readers.
Dry Skin Is A Widespread Problem
Dry skin occurs just when the natural fat and moisture regulation of the skin is disturbed. As a result, the skin becomes rough and brittle, tensioned and, in extreme cases, forms cracks and dehydration sec-tions. Especially in the elderly, dry skin is a widespread problem, as with increasing age the moisture of the skin decreases more and more. But even in younger people there can be problems with dried-out skin, especially in winter, when exposed to external factors such as changing temperatures, humidity differences, etc.
Dry Skin In Men-A Balanced Diet Helps
Anyone who has thought that I would like to have a face cream for men to prevent dry skin is wrong. The ideal prevention is already starting with the right diet. For what many people forget is that the skin is an organ, and like almost every other organ, it must be supplied with water in order to live. But this is especially difficult in the winter because the skin is strongly stressed by external influences such as cold, dry air and constantly running heaters.
In order to prevent the skin from drying out, it is recommended to use a balanced diet. For example, fresh fruits and vegetables provide important minerals and vitamins for the skin cells. But one should not build on it. Sufficient water, fruit scales, fruit or herbal teas also help ensure that the skin receives enough water and does not dry out from the inside.
It is therefore essential to remember to drink a lot of water. A small tip from my side, make sure that a filled glass of water is always within reach. So you can not help but think about it regularly. At least this helps with me quite well. At the same time, however, the consumption of alcohol should be kept within the frame, as this can only make unnecessary strain on sensitive skin.
A Facial Cleansing In The Form Of A Peeling Knows How To Help
At first sight, a peeling may seem contradictory, but even in the colder months of the year, it is important to remove dead skin cells from the surface. When selecting a suitable peeling product you should make sure that this contains glycolic acid, which makes it easier to remove dead skin and dead cells.
“Glycolic acid with optimal pH values stimulates collagen synthesis and strengthens facial wrinkles. Eliminates dead cells of the upper skin layer, reduces their thickness and softens the upper skin layer. “
The easiest and most gentle way to perform a peeling is to use a cleansing cream regularly and wash your face with a washcloth.With a gentle pressure and circular movements move over the face.Especially in winter it is recommended however not every day a peeling to perform, once or twice a week is completely sufficient.Otherwise the following applies:
PH-neutral care, this prevents the additional drying of the skin
Avoid face cleaners with alcohol
Use non-perfumed care products to avoid skin irritation
Use care products only in small quantities
Moisture Is An Absolute Must For The Right Skin Care
Once you have cleansed your face and freed the dry skin from dead skin cells, it is important to keep your skin moisturized. When choosing the right face cream, it is important to ensure that it fits to your own skin type. For people with more oily skin, a mild moisturizer is recommended, if you have very dry skin, you have to resort to a heavy facial cream. Particularly dry and keratinized areas of the skin can be treated with water-free fat creams.
What definitely does not hurt in winter, regardless of the type of skin, is the use of a greasy facial cream. It is best to call your dermatologist what cream is the right one for the face care for dry skin. What is good for the face does not harm the rest of the body, of course. Therefore you should take care of the skin all over your body. Here, too, it is advisable to consult the opinion of your own dermatologist.
Sun Protection In Winter – Really?
One point, which I myself had not thought before this research for this article, is the fact that also in the winter protection from the sun plays an important role for the skin. Because even at the coldest time of the year, this UV rays emanate, which are exposed especially during walks or winter sports.
Therefore, it is recommended to use at least a care stick for the brittle lips with an additional UV filter when traveling outdoors. A simple way to combine your own skincare with appropriate sun protection is the use of a moisturizer with sun protection factor.
Even When Shaving You Should Pay Attention To Its Skin!
The subject of the right shave I have already treated here several times in the blog, as you see here , for example , so I do not grasp it in its entirety, but go only to important points for proper skincare in the winter. As with a shave in spring or summer, even in the winter, the best time for this is right after a hot shower when the pores are open. When selecting the shaving foam or the shaving cream, one should ensure that it not only protects against cutting injuries but also moisturizing properties.
Also, the razor, is not exactly the most favorable and therefore of the quality rather bad specimen should be. Because a proper tool, which is the razor in this case, is needed in every activity, thereby saves unnecessary shaving fires and ingrown hairs. The choice of the after shave or the shaving balm should also be well thought out, it is also recommended to look for products with a special moisturizer.
Care Your Skin And You Go Well
As we have now experienced, our skin is daily exposed to external influences, in winter significantly more than in the summer. But I could also show that by a little more attention in the daily skin care can be done much to prevent dry skin.
Even a few minor changes to the daily routine help to provide your own skin with moisture and avoid discomfort or irritation due to dry skin.
