Every season brings challenges for those who want to keep their skin healthy, but winter is perhaps the most challenging season of all. Winter weather can easily cause skin irritation, chafing, rashes, and even set up for secondary bacterial or viral infections to set in.
Have you ever asked yourself, “why does my skin get dry in the winter?” If you haven't thought about how to protect your skin from winter skin problems, here are just some of the ways winter weather can harm your skin.
Cold Wind Chafing
Cold, dry winter winds can dehydrate the skin at a surprisingly fast rate - and the colder it gets, the worse your winter skin problems will get. In harsh winter weather, even a few minutes in the cold wind can strip your skin of moisture and its protective oils.
Hot, Blowing Indoor Air
The opposite also applies. In cold weather, it's tempting to leave the furnace on at high speeds, blasting hot air through the house. This also leads to different types of winter skin problems – dried, vulnerable skin - particularly if there's no humidifier adding moisture to the air.
All those layers of winter clothing can leave you with a layer of sweat permanently stuck to your body, trapped by the layers of clothes. This can actually create a version of "heat rash," causing rashes, blisters, or pimples to break out in places which become too sweaty, for too long.
Many people don't know it, but you can actually be in MORE danger of a sunburn in winter than in summer! Snow and ice reflect up to 80% of the sun's UV light, so you effectively get hit by double the amount of sunlight on a clear day.
