How to Treat Common Winter Skin Issues

During the colder months, the days get colder, we’ve got the central heating on more, and there’s a lack of humidity in the air. These factors can cause havoc on our skin, leading to some winter skin issues that can be uncomfortable.

However, you can help prevent your skin from struggling in the winter by adding some really nourishing, hydrating and comforting products into your skincare routine. Here are some Yon-Ka essentials that will help combat any winter skin concerns.

Common winter skincare issues:

Dryness and dehydration

As mentioned earlier, the colder weather, central heating and a decrease in humidity can all strip your skin of its natural moisture, making it dry and dehydrated. With this winter skin issue, skin can become tight, uncomfortable, dull and flaky.

Redness and sensitivity

Those with sensitive skin can struggle in colder weather because the drop in temperatures and cold winter winds can trigger their skin sensitivity and redness. Their skin can become sore, inflamed and uncomfortable.

Cracked lips

Dry, cracked lips are one of the most common winter skin issues thanks to the colder air outside and central heating inside.

Fine lines and wrinkles

As the skin can become dryer in the winter months, this can lead to fine lines and wrinkles looking more noticeable. So, keeping the skin hydrated is essential to help minimise their appearance.

Dull skin

In winter, a build-up of dead skin cells can lead to dull skin. It can also mean that your skincare products won’t work correctly, so keeping your skin free from dead skin cells is vital, which will also help it look brighter.

Products to treat these winter skin issues

YonKa Hydra No. 1 Masque

This masque is ideal for those looking to hydrate and soothe dry, dehydrated skin intensely. It’s loved by many, especially in the winter, for its long-lasting, reparative, soothing and nourishing benefits. You can use it one to three times per week as a hydrating mask, so if your skin is uncomfortable or dehydrated and needs some TLC, let it sit on your skin for 20-60 minutes before blotting any excess with tissue. You can also use it as an overnight mask by applying a thin layer and allowing it to absorb overnight.

YonKa Nutri Defense

This rich cream is the SOS to comfort even the driest of skin. It’s infused with omega 3, 6 and 9, essential fatty acids, which repair the skin and give it instant and intense comfort. It soothes the skin immediately, helping to enhance the skin’s natural defenses, leaving it feeling more comfortable, soothed and nourished.

YonKa Nutri Boost

If you feel like your skin needs damage repair, adding Nutri Boost to your skincare is just what you need. It helps to boost your favourite moisturiser’s reparative benefits for those with dry, damaged skin. With a blend of organic cereal oils to deeply nourish and help repair the skin and antioxidant vitamins E and F, a few drops of this added to your day or night cream is all you need.

YonKa Nutri Contour

It can be easy to forget about the delicate skin around the eyes and on the lips in your skincare routine. Nutri Contour works on both areas, giving it intense nourishment and helping to protect the skin from drying out. It contains hazelnut oil and Vitamin D to smooth the skin while helping to hydrate and repair the skin.

YonKa Gommage

During the winter, getting rid of a build-up of dead skin cells will ensure that your skin is radiant, clear and ready to absorb the active ingredients of your serums and creams. However, exfoliation might be a challenge in those colder months when your skin might be a bit more sensitive. YonKa Gommage is a soft, gentle, non-irritating facial peel that exfoliates, clarifies, hydrates, and balances all in one. If your skin is sensitive or prone to redness, this is recommended for you, giving it its healthy glow back.
