THE UN­EX­PECTED UP­SIDES TO COLD WEATHER ON YOUR SKIN

Fashion (Canada) - - The Market | Products -

Cool climes aren’t all bad for your skin. Beauty perk #1: The colder tem­per­a­tures can re­duce in­flam­ma­tion and swelling and make your pores seem less vis­i­ble. It’s kind of like a cryother­apy spa treat­ment—ex­cept it’s free. Beauty perk #2: You sleep bet­ter when it’s cooler, which leaves your skin look­ing more re­ju­ve­nated in the morn­ing. When you’re sleep-de­prived, your body pumps out more cor­ti­sol (a.k.a. the stress hor­mone). Cor­ti­sol can worsen in­flam­ma­tory skin con­di­tions like acne and pso­ri­a­sis and also de­creases your skin’s abil­ity to pro­duce skin-plump­ing col­la­gen and hyaluronic acid. Beauty perk #3: Rosy cheeks. What’s not to love?
