Dry skin can be troublesome throughout the year, but in winters it can become truly problematic. As the temperature slowly starts to fall, so does the moisture content in the skin. The skin on your face starts to feel tight and loses elasticity and radiance along with the moisture. So often it happens that after a day out in the wonderful winter weather, you head home only to feel like your skin has shrivelled up into a rough texture. This can be quite uncomfortable and sometimes even painful if it starts cracking or chapping slightly due to dryness.
And what’s worse is that dry skin can speed up the aging process and lead to fine lines on the face at a younger age! To avoid this, some people opt for heavy creams in the winter which feel unbearably sticky and oily. These creams can block the pores and worsen skin problems. Yet, continuing to use a light moisturiser just isn’t enough in the chilly season.
Moisturiser or chemical composition?
Another factor involved while choosing commercial moisturisers is their chemical composition. Most creams are loaded with harmful chemicals that people don’t even pay attention too. Common ingredients like parabens and sulphates are actually quite harmful in the long run and have been classified as a carcinogenic. In addition, these creams permeate the skin and get absorbed in the bloodstream, worsening their impact.
