Summer and warm summer days are slowly but surely coming to an end. The air becomes cooler, the daylight hours are shorter, and the treetops turn various shades of yellow, orange, red, and brown. In addition to the weather and nature, the onset of the new season also affects our skin. Various skin problems begin to appear, or existing ones worsen.
In this article, we will talk more about the most common problems in the autumn season. We will also pay attention to the appropriate ways to deal with them. With this information, autumn will no longer be an obstacle on the way to radiant skin and an irresistible appearance.
In the summer, our skin is subjected to aggressive drying by the strong sun. Falling temperatures in the fall also indicate additional stress, as humidity drops. When the weather starts to get colder, it can cause dry, red, and flaky skin as it is dehydrated. Also, dry indoor air, which is a result of the use of air conditioners and other heating systems in the home or workplace,
can cause skin moisture to decrease. Fortunately, this autumn skin problem can be dealt with very easily. The best way is by increasing the use of moisturizing cosmetic products. Of course, dry skin is not locally limited to the face and hands. Signs of flaking, dryness, and irritation may appear on the skin of the whole body. To prevent this, it is good to use body cleansers and oil that increase moisture retention in the skin.
Another common skin problem in autumn is the worsening of conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. As unpleasant as it sounds, the reason for this is rooted in summer. There are many factors that affect the skin negatively during this season. UV rays cause an increased production of free radicals, which leads to a decrease in the body’s supply of antioxidants. Also, seawater and chlorine disrupt the natural barrier of the epidermis. Combine this with the dry air of autumn, and the result is easier penetration of bacteria and viruses, as well as, worsening of existing problems such as psoriasis and eczema. There are a number of potential solutions to these
problems. However, it is best to use medical cosmetics, and you should first consult a dermatologist to find out which treatment will be most suitable for you.
Another skin condition that can be triggered by the transition to autumn is Rosacea. It is a chronic skin disease that affects many people. It is characterized by redness and bumps on the skin, as well as the appearance of dilated skin vessels, accompanied by rashes. It is not yet clear what is the cause that triggers the disease, but one of the factors is believed to be extreme temperature changes. Rosacea tends to flare up when we go back and forth between warm and cool weather. Something that happens in the fall. Some dermatologists believe that it is good to use products containing coffee or caffeine to improve the condition of the skin. They help constrict the blood vessels that cause the visible signs of rosacea.
We know we all have our favorite autumn sweaters, scarves, and socks that we can not wait to wear when the season rolls around. But what you
do not know is that these warm outfits can become the cause of Keratosis pilaris. It is an epidermal condition characterized by roughening of the top layer of the skin and the formation of small bumps caused by the production of a large amount of keratin and the lack of skin cell turnover. The accumulated protein creates a “plug” that blocks the hair follicles. Keratosis pilaris worsens when our skin rubs against rough fabrics, especially wool. Wool traps heat close to the skin, and many people also find the fibers irritating and itchy. What would help clear keratin plugs is gentle exfoliation of the skin. Also, cosmetic products containing glycolic acid are very suitable for this condition. It exfoliates and smoothes the skin, improving the turnover of skin cells.
