How many days until National Winter Skin Relief Day?


On January 8th every year, National Winter Relief Day is held to remind us of our skin reminiscent of winter blues.  Everyone wants to have a beautiful skin. Even if you are on the opposite side of the self-care spectrum, protecting your skin from the harsh winter is as important as hygiene or keeping yourself hydrated.

Why National Winter Skin Relief Day?

In your web surfing habits, chances are you've come across many Instagram divas and social media influencers and skin care products.  You may have sighed deeply as you looked at the porcelain leather models and the skin care brands they endorse for the ridiculously high prices.

Acne, aging, sun damage and many other skin conditions interfere with our glassy-skin imaginations.  To solve these problems, we have a cold winter breeze, which freezes our skin to death, loses all light and moisture.  It's not all bad news at all, at least winter itch is something we can take care of without going bankrupt.

Our 20-pound skin is the only barrier between our internal organs and a bacterial environment.  We are alive and healthy because our skin does its job perfectly.  The least we can do is protect it from cracking caused by the dry winter.

There are many reasons for the unsightly dry skin we suffer in winter.  Exposure to harsh chemicals in your toiletries can cause skin dryness and localization, especially during winter.  Alternating exposure to dry weather outside with the warmth of households drives our skin crazy!

And who could resist the comfort of a long, hot shower?  Especially during the winter, this habit is very detrimental to the health of our skin because the heat takes up essential oils on the skin, leading to inflammation.  The swollen cells loosen as they dry, making your skin look like a map of the world!

Medical experts have done their research and come up with a number of measures to keep your skin looking young.  When winter begins, replace your luxury water drinking routine and take a quick shower with a warm, lukewarm shower.  And for toiletries, use gentle detergent and avoid scrubbing completely.

Use a moisturizer that's good for your skin and use ointments with ceramides and hyaluronic acid with a mild lubricant for chapped skin.  When it comes to winter dressing, wear layers to avoid winter.  Light cotton or flannel fabrics are the best choices for the innermost layer as they are soft and don't squash like synthetic fabrics.  In addition to all these remedies, using a mist humidifier can protect your skin against moisture loss while you are sleeping.

With a few tweaks to your daily routine, you can avoid wandering around like a piece of gothic mosaic art.  As the body's largest organ, your skin deserves some exclusive care and moisture right!  Beauty is deep skin, but skin cracks are damaged.  So prepare yourself for some layers of moisture and cotton, winter is coming!
