It’s cold outside! Winter is with us and it is a fact that skin suffers a lot, which means that we should learn to look after it as it deserves. In this publication we give some advice on the basic care regime to follow and on products that are recommended for atopic skin.
Essential care to survive the cold includes the use of bath gel and a specific body lotion for people with this kind of skin which is so sensitive.
1.Use products suitable for atopic skin at bath time.
Using a special gel for atopic skin that will clean the skin gently, respect its pH, and not dry it out is essential. The skin must be kept moisturised at this dry time of the year.
For this first step we recommend AGRADO Micellar Gel which is suitable for atopic skin. This gel has been specially formulated for the daily hygiene of this highly sensitive skin type. Its formula contains no soap as it operates based on micelles; it has been dermatologically tested and has a neutral pH. This makes it an ideal product for daily use.
2. Watch your shower temperature
At bath-time lukewarm water should be used (even if we find this harder in winter) as it is less irritating to the skin than very hot water. Massage the skin gently without rubbing it, and do the same when drying the skin.
3. Protect and moisturise your skin daily
Afterwards a body lotion should be applied to protect the skin. It must contain agents to strengthen the skin barrier, relieve the feeling of tightness, and above all keep the skin moisturised for a long period.
We recommend AGRADO Atopic Body Milk which acts efficiently on the most sensitive skin and moisturises it deeply. It reduces the feeling of tightness and reddening, has been dermatologically tested, and contains no allergens. To conclude, a body lotion with all the necessary characteristics for this skin type.
4. Look carefully at the labels on your clothes
Wool and synthetic textiles must be avoided if we want to keep our sensitive or atopic skin under control. It is also important to rinse clothes thoroughly in the wash to eliminate any remaining soap. Perfumes may also be a source of allergens; try to read the label or not apply them directly to the skin.
5. Heating may be an enemy
In particular at this time of year when we enter a place with heating and go out again to the cold of the street, sudden changes of temperature do not help sensitive or atopic skin. Avoid this situation as much as possible and stay at a more stable temperature, especially in dry places.
Following this simple advice as a daily routine will help to minimise the symptoms of atopic skin and create a feeling of comfort and relief for sufferers.
We hope that you liked this advice and that you apply it to your daily routine. Till next time!
