It's so crispy cold outside and so toasty in. The contrast of these conditions can suck the moisture from your skin leaving it feeling dehydrated, tight and in some cases sore and irritated. Cheeks are often pinker and very little seems to help.
The usually hydrated epidermal cells that begin life in the basal layer and slowly change composition as they move up and off begin to dry out faster in these conditions. Normally the outer layer provides a waxy hydrated cover helping to maintain water levels in the lower layers of the skin. Exfoliating and moisturising is usually enough but now your skin may need more hydration than usual.
Topically applying oils containing essential fatty acids offer protection helping to support the lipid bilayer of our skin cells. The extra lipids or fatty act as protection from changes in temperature. Your skin feels less tight and dry.
