Cold and dry winter air outdoors and on the other hand pleasantly high temperatures that warm us inside - winter is an unforgiving time of the year for our skin. Low temperatures and large temperature differences are the main culprits of winter skin problems. In the cold period, the skin needs different care than on hot days, otherwise it quickly becomes dry and irritated, and is often accompanied by an unpleasant itch and scaly appearance.

Skin care from the inside out

Winter skin is often dry and dehydrated. This is often aided by the fact that we don't feel thirsty like on warmer days. So we need to remind ourselves and drink enough water every day. In addition to adequate water intake, we need to regularly eat enough fruits and vegetables to provide the body with essential vitamins, minerals, fiber and phytochemicals. Intake of healthy fats like avocado, salmon, nuts, and unrefined oils is key.

Let's take a look at what common skin problems are in winter and how to alleviate them.


Dry skin around the nose

Dry, itchy skin around the nose is one of the most annoying winter headaches. The steam bath will certainly appeal to the irritated skin around the nose and, finally, apply the HempTouch - Gentle Baby Balm even on moist skin, which deeply nourishes and restores dry and sensitive skin.

Cracked lips

Wind, cold and dry air cause a lot of headaches in the sensitive and thin skin of the lips. In milder cases, the lips are dry and many people experience painful cracks that require special care. The precious formula of HempTouch - Intensive Lip Balm ensures that dry and chapped lips return to being soft as silk and intensely hydrated. Hypoallergenic ointment also works great.

Dry and irritated skin

It may not seem like a serious problem, but dry skin can be extremely painful. The most common symptoms are scaling, redness, itching and cracking of the skin. Using a quality care product that moisturizes and nourishes the skin is key. Dryness and irritation can also be avoided with some small care: take a shower with warm water and always apply a rich moisturizer to the skin, which provides the skin with the necessary hydration and at the same time nourishes and protects it.

We recommend HempTouch - Pristine Forest Body Lotion, which absorbs instantly, instantly relaxes dry skin and provides the necessary hydration. 
The skin will be soothed and wonderfully nourished after the treatment.

Eczema or dermatitis

Eczema or dermatitis occurs with severely itchy, dry, red, scaly skin on the face, neck, hands. In winter, a lack of moisture in the air and cold can make the situation worse, so it's important to act quickly and avoid serious outbreaks. Careful moisturizing and nourishing skin care with effective yet gentle products is important. HempTouch - Therapeutic CBD Skin Balm for the care of diseased parts of the skin and the HempTouch - Pristine Forest Body Lotion for moisturizing and nourishing daily care are useful.
