When the temperatures go to zero and the heating is running at full speed, our feet start to have a hard time: whether blood circulation or activity of the sebum glands –“low flame” is the order of the day. When the temperature is cool, the blood vessels in the skin constrict. The result: cold feet and hands.

A common winter problem is dry, rough skin The heating air in particular leads to the body shell drying out. In the heated rooms, the humidity is usually very low. As a result, our skin quickly becomes brittle and begins to flake. Rough, dry skin can no longer optimally fulfill one of its most important tasks: the barrier function. This means that it is no longer able to protect the body from water loss, harmful substances or germs. This negative chain can only be broken with the right care.

That’s not the only challenge. Remembering to drink enough water and moisturize your skin is easy during the summer, when higher temperatures and outdoor activities drive the point home. But staying adequately hydrated is just as important during the winter.
