It’s the time of year where changes in temperature and air quality can have various effects on our skin. Depending on your skin type and overall skin health, you may develop different reactions to changes in the air. As a result of colder air temperatures, you may experience one or more of the following conditions:
Dryness, Redness, and Irritation
Cold air tends to be drier, and this lack of moisture can lead to dry skin. Cold air has a lower humidity level, and when combined with indoor heating systems, it can strip the skin of its natural oils, leading to dryness, flakiness, and sometimes redness and/or irritation. Individuals with sensitive or reactive skin are more likely to feel the effects of cold air and wind.
Worsening Skin Conditions
If you have an existing skin condition such as eczema or rosacea, you may find that colder weather exacerbates these symptoms. The dryness and harsh conditions can trigger flare-ups and increase skin sensitivity.
Decreased Blood Circulation
Cold temperatures can reduce blood circulation to the skin’s surface. While this is a natural response to prevent heat loss, it can lead to a pale or dull complexion and may contribute to the feeling of coolness in the skin. Poor blood circulation can also lead to decreased elasticity and thinning of the skin.
