In winter, having red and chapped skin is very common. Let’s see what are the causes and natural remedies to try.
As soon as winter comes, do you start to fight against red, chapped and irritated skin ? Don’t worry, it’s normal: the cold, the wind and temperature changes put a strain on sensitive skin.
Fortunately, if it is not dermatitis or other pathologies and the redness is due only to the cold, there are several natural remedies that solve the problem. Let’s see which ones!
Red skin on the face: the causes
Having your face reddened in winter is normal: cold, wind, temperature changes and too aggressive detergents damage the skin barrier, depriving the skin of its natural protection.
In the case of red and itchy skin , with spots, blisters or pimples, it is better to contact a dermatologist, because it could be some pathology, such as dermatitis, eczema, acne or rosacea .
Red skin: grandma’s remedies
The first thing to do when winter comes is to change cosmetics : detergents must be creamy and delicate, the softening tonic and the nourishing and protective cream. Better to buy a face cream for sensitive and red skin in the pharmacy, to be used every day before leaving home.
It is also very important to wash your face using lukewarm water , neither too cold nor too hot, and dry it by gently dabbing a soft towel on the skin.
An effective grandmother’s remedy against redness is chamomile . Every evening, after cleaning your face, prepare an infusion with chamomile flower heads, let it cool down and use it instead of the tonic, applying it with a cotton pad. You can also make a compress to leave on the face for half an hour or more , using sterile gauze to be bathed with chamomile.
Always in the evening, before going to bed, apply a few drops of jojoba oil or a little shea butter to your red skin, preferably enriched with vitamin E.
