Feeling cold isn’t the only irritating thing about winter. The season can also lead to uncomfortable skin conditions. Here are some of the most common skin problems during winter and how to help alleviate some of the issues.
In the winter months, very little humidity in the air can cause chapped lips. Anyone can get chapped lips if they have dry skin.
Chafing is a common skin problem that can happen for many reasons, like the inner thighs rubbing together. Chafing can also happen during winter when the air is dry.
It occurs when the epidermis or the outer layer of the skin is subjected to repetitive friction, leading to damage and exposure of the lower dermis layer. When the dermis gets exposed, the skin feels irritated and uncomfortable.
Winter acne is the name given to seasonal acne that is more severe or more challenging to manage during the winter months. Excessive dryness in the winter can cause more severe acne breakouts.
The cold, wind, rain, snow, and lack of humidity (indoors and out) can all strip moisture from the skin. When skin is dry, the body produces additional sebum, the oil secreted by our glands to keep skin hydrated. Too much sebum oil production can cause dead skin cells and acne bacteria to be trapped beneath the skin, leading to the development of blemishes.
