As the holiday season approaches, many of us are anticipating festive getaways to colder destinations adorned with blankets of snow. While the picturesque landscapes and winter wonderlands create the perfect backdrop for cherished moments, the cold and dry climate can pose a challenge to our skin and hair.
Brisk winds and low humidity can cause unwelcome effects of dryness but, fear not! Your winter escapade can still be a hydrating and moisturizing experience with the right beauty products. 😉
How Does Cold Weather Affect Our Skin and Hair?
Before we talk about our hydrating heroes, it is first important to understand how low temperatures affect the skin and hair. Dryness due to cold weather are due to several factors:
- Low humidity – humidity is the amount of moisture present in the air. When it’s cold, it tends to get low and causes the air to become dry. This means moisture evaporates more quickly from the skin and hair.
- Indoor heating – during colder months, people use indoor heating systems to stay warm. These can further reduce humidity and continuous exposure to heated indoor air can strip the skin and hair of their natural oils.
- Hot showers – hot water can also strip the skin and air of their natural oil. It also causes damage to keratin cells, which when disrupted, it prevents cells from locking in moisture.
- Inadequate hydration – in colder weather, people might not feel as thirsty, leading to reduced water intake. Proper hydration is crucial for maintaining skin and hair health, insufficient drinking of liquids can contribute to dryness.
