This helps against dry winter skin!

At the moment the winter cold from outside alternates with dry heating air, which leads to flaky and itchy skin all over the body. With the right preparation, however, the skin can also be prevented from drying out in autumn and winter.

Proper care

Many skincare products contain mineral oils such as paraffin, but over time this dries out the skin. Therefore, people with sensitive skin should make sure to use care products with as few ingredients as possible and few dyes, fragrances, and alcohol, as these can irritate the skin. Well-tolerated alternatives are, for example, almond and jojoba oil and shea butter.

Take care when showering and bathing

Hot water and too much soap also damage the protective skin coat and lead to dry skin. For this reason, you should shower especially in winter, and not too hot or too long. It is important to ensure that only the “critical” areas and not the whole body are soap. Extensive hot foam baths are also not recommended for sensitive skin.

Proper nutrition

With the right nutrition, the skin can be strengthened from the inside out. Vegetable oils from flax or chia seeds support the skin with essential omega-3 fatty acids. High-fat fish and avocados are also recommended for strengthening the skin. A very simple alternative: The SanaExpert Omega-3 capsules supply the body and skin from the inside out when taken regularly! Fruit and vegetables also contain plenty of vitamins that support the skin’s regeneration process. Also important: drink a lot, preferably water and unsweetened tea!

Optimization of the indoor climate

With dry heating air, the moisture from the upper layers of the skin evaporates and the skin dries out. The indoor climate can be improved by occasionally ventilating. You are not only doing something good for your skin: Fresh air makes you awake and focused.

With these tips, you are hopefully well prepared for the cold season and can prevent your skin from drying out despite the cold winter air and heated rooms.
