Dry skin and cold weather seem to go hand in hand. It is one of the most common conditions we see amongst our customers during winter. Whether in the form of cracked skin, white layer on the arms and face, itchy flakes or cracks, it is a common phenomenon that seems to affect all of us.
Dry skin tends to be the first sign of winter, due to the drop in levels of humidity, causing water in the skin to evaporate at a much faster rate.
According to Dr. Jessica Wu of Everyday Health, our skin may lose up to 25% of its ability to retain moisture during winters.
In fact, dry skin during winters has received its own special term- Winter Skin.
Interestingly enough, Avocado oil has been rated one of the top three ingredients that can provide relief from Winter Skin.
High in Vitamin E and Omega 3, it supports healthy cell function and decreases inflammation. It is a wonderful remedy for dry, flaky, patchy or wrinkled skin, often associated with conditions like eczema and psoriasis.
Avocado Oil can also be effectively used to treat acne and its incorporation in face washes gives them an added advantage.
Often during winter, we may not feel like we are being over exposed to the sun. In fact, the extra sun light tends to feel nice on our skin during the cold hours. The antioxidants in avocado oil may help to ease the symptoms of a sunburn.
