The cold season can be quite a handful for your skin to cope with as the air gets drier and crispier. In places where the cold season is harsher and lasts much longer, as in Alaska, the higher altitude states in the Rocky Mountains, or in the states bordering Canada, your skin will need special care. The dry air is further aggravated by windy conditions that blow away whatever little moisture is there in the atmosphere and this compounds the problem for your skin even more.
What exactly happens to your skin during winter?
It is important to know that our skin cells store moisture up to a certain level, which contributes in wrinkle removal to a large extent. During winter, the dry air takes the moisture out of our skin cells and if conditions are windier than normal, the skin could actually crack in certain places like the cheeks, the lips, back of the palms, as well as the skin over your toes. In such conditions, the question of not attending to your skin simply doesn’t arise, as it could lead to serious problems with widening cracks and open sores.
Your skin needs more hydration during winter
Most people don’t allow such a situation to arise and use some or other type of moisturizer to keep the skin hydrated in winter. The substance known as collagen, which occurs naturally on the skin, needs to be retained for the process of wrinkle removal to be sustained even during winter. The highly effective and collagen-rich anti-aging skin cream, Hydroxatone is available in Canada to deal with your wrinkles not just in winter but all year round.
