We all switch to our win­ter clothes with­out think­ing when it gets cold but do you ad­just your sk­in­care, too. “Colder weather can of­ten be a shock to the skin and main­tain­ing its pro­tec­tive bar­rier func­tion can be more of a chal­lenge,” ex­plains Nivea sk­in­care ex­pert Dr Sven Un­tiedt. “As we con­stantly drift be­tween hot and cold tem­per­a­tures, skin loses es­sen­tial wa­ter, re­sult­ing in skin that feels tight and dry. “Con­sum­ing plenty of wa­ter is just as im­por­tant in the win­ter as it is in sum­mer,” says Dr Sven. “Eight glasses of wa­ter a day is a good guide, but try eat­ing foods with a high wa­ter con­tent such as cu­cum­ber, wa­ter­melon and toma­toes.” These sim­ple life­style changes can help, but ad­just­ing your sk­in­care rou­tine is re­ally im­por­tant too.
