Our skin during winter months will always be a lot more sensitive than in the warmer, summer months. The skin is the one part of your body that’s in direct contact with the atmosphere at all times, meaning it is vulnerable to all kinds of external factors. In winter, our skin is subjected to lower temperatures, winds and rain. The combined effect is that your skin becomes stressed-out and less able to maintain its balance, leading to increases in skin concerns such as blemishes.
Not only that but an increase in central heating systems causes less moisture in the air. This artificial heat and staying in this environment over a certain period will dry out skin, creating a dead layer of cells on the skin’s surface, clogging pores and leading to breakouts.
A way to fix your skin during winter months is simple - listen to it. If you find yourself experiencing breakouts after prolonged exposure to winter elements, you may need to cut back on your time outdoors and give your skin some TLC.
One of the ways you can give yourself TLC during these winter months is to invest in a daily skincare routine. By treating our skin daily we can ensure that we are creating a barrier of protection from winter. A good way to create a protective barrier is with a goats milk skincare regime, which is particularly good for those who have sensitive skin and breakouts.
Goat milk contains minerals such as selenium and vitamin A, which are critical for healthy skin. Full of alpha-hydroxy acids which help slough away dead skin cells that winter winds encourage, it also helps to decrease irritation. And, thanks to an abundance of essential fatty acids, goat milk creates a moisture barrier that traps moisture in the skin and prevents it from drying out.
But, even you don’t suffer from eczema, psoriasis or other sensitive skin issues, goats milk soap can still work magic! It does everything from balancing skins pH and fighting infections to preventing premature aging and soothing sunburns. Not only that but with its high content of lactic acid which helps to exfoliate skin, it will help to reduce the signs of ageing like spots and sallowness, helping to increase the skin’s ability to retain moisture.
