As it gets colder outside, the heating in the house is running at a high temperature. Who does not like coming home after a long day's work in to a cuddly warm house, when it is stormy cold outside? As tempting as that sounds, you should still watch how much hot you keep your indoors - because that’s felt not only on our electricity bill, but also on our skin! Heating air does not do any good to our skin - how exactly this affects and what you can do about it.
Very Warm rooms: Bad for the Skin and the Health
Probably there is a radiator in each room - which of course is turned on throughout the winter months. The colder it gets outside, the warmer we would like it to be at home - understandable. But you should always keep a watchful eye on the temperature reading - because overheated rooms are bad for our skin and our health. Why is that? The regular change of the cold air outside and the heated, dry air in the house strains our skin very much. The heated air in the house deprives our skin of moisture, it tenses and itches to itch. In addition, the warm heating air dries out our mucous membranes, especially in the mouth and throat, which makes us even more susceptible to bacteria and viruses.
Our Tip: To keep your skin hydrated even while changing from hot to cold, simply use our NAVI Pore-Refining Hydro Emulsion several times a day, especially if you feel your skin begins to stretch. In addition, you should pay attention to a sufficient fluid intake. Just put a jug of water in the workplace and a good pot of tea in the evening.
Proper Heating: Good for the skin and Energy-saving
Above all, the right ventilation is essential for proper heating. Brief airing to bring fresh air into the house is essential. A tilted window, on the other hand, is rather counterproductive because that only cools the walls and ensures higher heating costs. In addition, fresh, cold air can heat much faster than used, warmer. Above all, you should turn off the heating even if the room is warm enough - and do not let them run continuously. This not only saves costs, but counteracts a notorious overheating of the rooms, which in turn has a positive effect on our skin. To further protect your skin from dehydration and other debris in the air, you can simply use our NAVI Anti-Pollution Hydro-Day Cream - it nourishes and hydrates the skin without fats.
It is also particularly important to return moisture to the air that it has lost by heating. The easiest way to do this is to hang laundry in the room to dry, or put damp clothes over the radiator. However, one should absolutely make sure that it is not too wet, otherwise mold could form.
Proper Care for the Skin in Winter
In winter not only our skin becomes much drier, but also our hair, eyes and lips. In order not to look like a shriveled apple after the winter months, you should pay attention to the proper care in winter. You could start putting humidifiers in the rooms so that the skin and hair does not dry out too much. In addition, ventilate regularly and one thing above all: drink a lot of water. As a result, your body gets more moisture from the inside, which is also reflected directly in your face.
Our Tip: If you are already heating properly and drinking enough, then you can improve your results even more with the NAVI Revitalizing Hydro-Night Cream, which also provides you with required moisture during your sleep and makes wrinkles disappear as well.
