Stressed Skin? The Impact Of Cold Weather And Stress On Your Skin

Winter is here, so it's the time to rethink your skincare routine. You may have noticed that your skin is changing and this could be due to a few different things. In this quick read, we’ll take you through how the colder months impact your skin, how stress affects the skin and the best moisturiser for cold dry weather. 

Cold, dry, windy weather can take a real toll on your skin. Is it starting to feel dry, tight, maybe a bit flaky and way more sensitive? This is because dry, cold environments draw moisture away from the skin and this can result in the skin becoming more sensitive to environmental conditions such as pollution and other external irritators trying to fight their way deep into the skin. Leaving both you and your skin feeling stressed. "The Hydration Heros Set" would be the perfect match if you’re in need of a nourishing rescue formula. This set contains the best moisturiser for cold dry weather, our Daily Base™ Revive Oil which is blended with 6 precious oils and ceramides deeply nourishes and protects your skin barrier. 

During the colder months, with the shorter days and the dreary weather winter blues can all start creeping in. We get busier, more stressed and can start to feel down. This too can have an impact on our skin. Skin blemishes can arise because of how stress affects the skin. Stress can cause an increase in production of adrenaline and cortisol, leading to the overproduction of oil. This inevitably contributes to skin blemishes, blocked pores and unwanted oiliness. Our Power TonIQ™ Anti-Blemish Essence is a gentle but powerful solution for breakouts, it instantly soothes and reduces the appearance of those unwanted spots.  On the other hand, how stress affects the skin can differ from person to person. For example the release of these stress hormones triggers your sweat glands, making your skin more likely to become dehydrated. Our Power TonIQ™ Intense Hydrating Essence is lightweight and penetrates deep into the skin to provide 24 hr hydration. 

What do we suggest?

At Wǒ, we know that the best way to support your skin is by getting to know it off by heart, taking our Skin Diagnostic will help you understand exactly what it needs. We recommend taking the Skin Diagnostic between seasonal and lifestyle changes because of how frequently our skin changes over time due to external factors.
