A long fresh autumn walk through nature is of course very healthy. But did you know that your skin also loves such a walk in the open air? Nevertheless, some people suffer from red and blotchy skin after a walk in the open air. What’s up with that? And what can you do about it?
- Natural glow
After a nice walk you often come home with a healthy colour on your cheeks. That has everything to do with the fresh outside air that ensures improved blood flow. This makes your skin more radiant, and you create your own natural glow.
2. Substances from trees
But there’s more: research shows that trees can excrete certain substances that make us calmer. For example, an hour a week walk through the forest can ensure less stress. And when you have little stress, it has a beneficial effect on your skin.
3. Redness, burning and burst vessels
Unfortunately, not everyone returns with such a healthy glow on their face. When you suffer from sensitive skin, cold and wind can quickly cause redness, burning and sometimes even burst vessels in the face. Do you suffer from this? This means that your skin is still recovering from the summer months. The change to colder temperatures is then a bit too big. In that case, it’s very important to take good care of your skin and make your skin as healthy and resilient as possible.
4. Products with extra calming substances
With sensitive skin, it’s wise to lubricate with products that contain extra calming and protective substances. Think, for example, of niacinamide, beta-glucan and vitamin C and vitamin A. Vitamin C and Vitamin A may be recognised more as ingredients against skin aging, but they also ensure recovery in the colder months.
It’s also wise to lubricate a good oil or cream that contains antioxidants. Especially if your skin itches faster and feels drier in the winter months, this can help enormously.
6. SPF in the winter months
Especially when your skin reacts violently to temperature changes, it’s important to apply sunscreen. In autumn and winter, you also have to protect your skin from the sun’s radiation. Especially when you suffer from sensitive skin, your skin can react violently to the sun. For sensitive skin, choose SPF 30. For less sensitive skin, SPF 15 is sufficient.
