New ZO Skin Health Hydrating Crème – Just The Thing For Dry Skin!

Having dry skin isn’t fun in any form. The various symptoms, associated with the condition include itching, redness, uneven texture and take a serious toll on sufferers’ self-esteem.  In a survey conducted by FEMAIL, seven in ten participants agreed that having dry skin impacts their overall confidence.

So, what causes it?

Dryness can be a symptom of an overactive immune response and skin conditions such as eczema and atopic dermatitis. Sore, itching skin can also be a result of a compromised protective barrier which is often caused by improper skincare regime and environmental factors such as cold weather and low humidity.

Winter Skin Conditions

With the temperature rapidly dropping this month, it’s common that our skin becomes a playground for problems, so we’ve decided to summarise the most common skin conditions during winter and what you can do to help prevent and/or treat them.

Eczema 

Eczema is a common inflammatory skin condition, with symptoms which may include itching, redness, and scaling. Flare-ups in the winter are common but avoiding these triggers may help lower the chances

  • Soap and detergents
  • Overheating/Indoor heating: can cause flares up, so while we’re not saying you need to freeze indoors, just try to keep the temperature down, to ensure it’s not too hot and aggravating for your skin.
  • Rough clothing: when it’s cold it’s evident that we’ll want to layer up to stay warm but some fabrics such as wool can be rough against the skin and become an irritant, so go for softer materials when buying your scarves and winter jumpers
  • Stress: this is obviously something which can impact  year round, so why no try to keep active as the endorphin released from exercise are great for mood boosting and minimizing stress.

Rosacea

Rosacea is a common rash, which usually occurs on the face, and which predominantly affects both middle-aged (age range 30 to 60) and fair-skinned people. In the winter, Rosacea can often be easily aggravated due to triggers which are commonly sought out during this cold weather. So, here are a few things to avoid this winter:

  • Hot beverages such as tea and coffee, especially taken hot or strong, are obviously much loved, especially to help against those dark, cold mornings. However, for those who suffer from Rosacea, it’s best to try to steer clear of hot drinks.
  • Spicy foods, mustard, pepper, vinegar or pickles are advised to be avoided.
  • Alcohol is also a big no, no.
  • Excessive heat/indoor heating
  • Rough clothing

Acne

Virtually every adolescent has a few “spots” and in most patients. the acne clears up by the late teens or early 20’s. However, about 15% of the adolescent population have sufficient problems and need to seek treatment and this more severe acne tends to last longer. A small number of people can struggle with persistent acne lasting up to the age of 30 to 40 years, and sometimes beyond. Although, patients with persistent acne often have a family history of this kind of sever acne.

Factors which can impact acne are:

  • Hormonal factors: About 70% of females will notice an aggravation of the acne just before or in the first few days of the period, also known as PMS.
  • Stress
  • Diet: the temptation to comfort eat in the winter is arguably much stronger than in the summer but decreasing the consumption of  high-glycaemic index foods such as sugar, biscuits, and cakes have reportedly made a significant improvement for some sufferers.
  • Cosmetics: oil-based cosmetics, as well as general laziness in terms of taking off your makeup. can clog pores, cause excessive oil, and thus result in acne.
