What happens to skin in cold weather?
First of all, let’s make it clear: Skin doesn’t differentiate, so, it is important for both the guys and girls to pay attention to the reason, season, and solutions below. With that, let’s start by asking what actually happens to the skin during a cold season?
When the temperature drops, the superficial skin layers, also called the stratum corneum lose the water content and diminish. Along with water, the skin is also sapped out of its natural oils. This leads the skin to lose moisture. The cell loses the volume with the moisture and the skin becomes “tight”. This means that the skin is losing its elasticity and later develop fissures and cracks. Cracks can cause capillaries ruptures, triggers clinical bleeding, and even inflammation.
Results: Now your skin is at risk of infection due to the inflammation and absorption of irritants. You become more vulnerable to allergies and even irritant eczema. Combating is easy by just keeping your skin healthy and hydrated.

2. Hand and nail creme
The skin on hands has fewer oil glands and is thinner than most parts of our body. Particularly in winter, dry weather, it is hard to keep them moist, which leads to irritation and breaking. Keeping them warm and moisturized is the best way to prevent dryness.
We chose the professional, emollient-rich treatment of Clarins Hand and Nail Treatment Cream, with soothing Sesame Oil and fortifying Japanese Mulberry. Almost like an invisible glove for your hands, it will help soften dry, chapped, and irritated skin! It will also strengthen nails and cuticles for healthy-looking hands.
