Tips for keeping your S – Tikiboo
As the winter months approach, it is essential to pay special attention to your skin care regimen. Do you know about dry skin and chapped lips? Dr. Matthew Moore, medical director and skin specialist behind the new premium skin care line for active people, CJ Skinhealth, shares his expert knowledge of what is happening to our skin during the colder months as well as solutions to keep your skin happy.
Dry, chapped skin
Although we may think of fall and winter as a wet and cold season, it is actually very dry because there is less humidity in the air. This is especially important in exposed areas such as the face, neck and hands, which can give a “weather beaten” appearance, as well as in those most at risk of developing skin cancer. Shifting your exercise program inside the gym can also dry out your skin with increased exposure to central heating or air conditioning systems. Solution: Be sure to use a high quality moisturizer enriched with ingredients that can protect and repair your skin from the elements. Using a moisturizer like Enhance & Protect will provide a protective layer against external damage as it combines several ingredients such as retinol, hyaluronic acid, DMAE, antioxidants, and hydrolyzed wheat proteins that help protect against free radicals and external damage.
The cold environment our skin experiences during outdoor activities tightens the skin, limiting the pores’ ability to breathe properly. This inhibits their natural function, clogging them and thus reducing the release of naturally produced protective oils. This can make the skin sensitive to dryness and infections (spots and blackheads). People with eczema will identify with their worsening skin as the weather changes. Solution: Use a cleanser that will go deep into the pores to clean out the impurities. An exfoliant will also help remove any excess dirt. Our Active Cleanse cleanses the skin deep within the pores to remove encrusted impurities, pollutants, excess oils and dead skin cells, and purifies the skin with natural antioxidants that have anti-inflammatory and antibacterial qualities . The main active ingredients include vitamin C, salicylic acid and glycerin to leave your skin feeling fresh, clean, revitalized and soft.
Broken veins and increased redness
The capillary blood vessels in the skin work to regulate the temperature of the skin: when hot, they dilate and enlarge to lose heat, and when cold, they contract and narrow to retain the heat. When you enter a warm building from the cold outside (or vice versa), the sudden change in the size of the capillaries in response to temperature differences can cause broken veins and increased redness of the skin. You may also be tempted to take a hotter bath or shower than usual, but the heat of the water melts the skin’s natural protective oil and, with the drying action of most soaps, will cause rough, cracked skin. We have all taken a hot bath when our feet are cold, which feels like rumbling. It is our body that warns us that it is not right. Solution: It is better to start in a hot bath and slowly add hot water to increase the temperature. CJ Skinhealth’s Active Cleanse keeps our pores open to allow our skin’s oil replenishment and Enhance & Protect contains active ingredients to soothe, nourish and reduce inflammation to prevent and reduce redness of broken capillaries.
Sun damage during ski vacations
Some of us may be lucky enough to enjoy a ski vacation this winter, but we want to warn against falling victim to the dreaded “ski goggle burn”. The sun’s intensity is higher at a higher altitude, producing similar sun exposure to that found on a beach vacation. In addition, the albedo nature of snow reflects most of the solar radiation back to us. The cold environment cools the skin, preventing the feeling of heat that usually alerts us that our skin is getting sunburned. Solution: Make sure to protect yourself with a high quality SPF of at least 30+ to avoid damaging your skin. Our Enhance & Protect SPF 30 has been specially formulated so it won’t hurt your eyes and itch if you sweat.
Lack of hydration
During the summer we all know that it is advisable to drink more water. However, this advice seems to wear off during the colder months, as we no longer lose water through sweating. During the winter, staying hydrated is just as important for your skin, due to the drying effects of inclement weather. Solution: continue to maintain the recommended two liters of water per day and continue to help skin hydration by incorporating a good skin care regimen to lock in moisture like Enhance and Protect from CJ Skinhealth.
Dr Matthew Moore sums up the importance of continuing to enjoy the outdoors and exercise during the colder months. We cannot stop exposing our skin to wind, cold and other environmental factors, but we can defend ourselves against it. Our skin wants to protect our body but is attacked daily by the elements and environmental free radicals, not to mention the impact that our actions have to weaken it further. We owe it to ourselves to take care of our skin. By using high quality skin care products like CJ Skinhealth, our skin can stay protected and cleansed. Eating a good skin care regimen will help reduce the signs of aging and damage, and prepare you for the day’s activities ahead. Our proprietary formulations put all of our knowledge and experience into just two comprehensive skin care treatments, which complement each other and, most importantly, are quick and easy to use in our busy and demanding lives.
