The seasonal change from fall to winter often brings many great experiences: ski trips, fireside moments, etc. However, the sudden drop in temperature can also result in dry, itchy or reactive skin.
Do you feel like the arrival of winter coincides with your skin suddenly acting up? If so, you are not alone. For most of us, the shift of temperatures can wreak havoc on our skin, leaving it dry, dull, flaky, and reactive. This is because the skin, like many parts of us, likes consistency, so when the temperature changes, it is a shock to our skin barrier. Winter, in particular, strips your skin of moisture and of its natural moisturizing oils. Use of a heater, hot showers and hot tubs further rob the skin of natural moisture and oils, while harsh winds can leave skin feeling even drier. The loss of moisture in the skin results in that dry, itchy and tight feeling we all know. In the wintertime, it is best to incorporate ultra-hydrating ingredients and opt for products rich in high quality ingredients to help lock in hydration.
Luckily, as the leader in men’s skincare expertise, Biotherm Homme has created a solution for every man’s skin type to help combat the harsh winter effects on the skin. Continue reading below to find your skin concern and the routine best suited to maintain hydrated, healthy skin even during the harshest winter days.
In need of hydration?
One of the most common skin complaints during the winter season is that tight, dry feeling that comes from lack of moisture in the skin. As mentioned above, this is due to several reasons including harsh, cold temperatures and use of space heaters. To top it off, the constant switch between the cold outdoors and warm indoor heating shocks the skin barrier even more, resulting in a further loss of natural moisture. But do not stress, we have the solution for you. With daily use of these two powerful products, your skin will be met with intense hydration.

Are cold temperatures resulting in signs of aging?

Have you noticed a sudden increase in imperfections or visible pores?
Studies have shown that moderate-to-severe acne can increase up to 11% during the winter months. One of the reasons your skin tends to act up in cold weather is a result of sebum, a type of oil that the small glands of the skin secrete. Sebum helps maintain your skin’s moisture levels, but too much can lead to clogged pores and breakouts. The dryer the conditions, the more sebum your skin will produce. For those who are seeing their skin becoming more reactive than usual, the routine below is just for you.
