Indoor air dries the skin, and the most important thing in its treatment is hydration – see the dermatologist’s tips

Few people are completely satisfied with their skin. One’s face turns red from even a small change in temperature, another gets pimples even as an adult, the third worries about his liver spots formed in the sun.

However, the most common skin problem is its dryness, especially with age. When moving indoors, the mechanical air conditioning dries the skin after what the sun and wind have already done.

The skin type of many Finns is already prone to dryness.

The easiest solution to dryness is to regularly use a moisturizer and moisturizing mask. Adequate hydration can help even if your problem is excessive greasiness instead of dryness.

Remember these:

  1. Keep your skin properly moisturized and oil it often. You support the skin’s own protective mechanisms when you use moisturizer regularly. Oily skin also needs moisture.
  2. Clean gently. The more sensitive your skin is, the more gently it should be cleaned so as not to damage the skin’s own protective sheath. People with dry skin should sometimes use the cream as a detergent.
  3. Cut back on sugar. Foods containing fast carbohydrates aggravate acne and age the skin. A healthy diet containing good fats and vegetables also gives the skin building materials.
  4. Stop smoking. The condition of your skin is another good reason to do it. When the blood vessels in the peripheral circulation work properly, the skin gets the oxygen and nutrients it needs. The wastes of the cells’ metabolism are also more efficiently transported away from the skin.
  5. Exercise and go outside, and your metabolism will work briskly and your skin cells will renew.
  6. Don’t forget the sunscreen. UV rays damage and age the skin.
