Fighting acne and skin issues in winter

Our skin, this precious coat that protects us, can suffer from the consequences of temperature changes as seasons unfold. Winter, in particular, can be a challenging period for our epidermis. Acne, blackheads, and other winter skin problems can arise. But don't panic! We have gathered tips and natural solutions to help soothe and alleviate these issues, allowing you to regain radiant skin even during the coldest months.


Winter challenges for our skin:

The arrival of winter transforms our environment into a winter wonderland, but for our skin, it's often less enchanted. Meteorological changes and cold weather can have a major impact on our epidermis, leading to various problems:

Dehydration: Winter cold is often accompanied by lower humidity in the air, which can cause a feeling of tightness and dryness on the skin.

Pimples and blackheads: The combination of dry skin with the accumulation of dead cells can clog pores, promoting the appearance of pimples and blackheads.

Sensitive skin: Cold weather can make our skin more sensitive, prone to reacting with redness, itching, and irritation.

Loss of radiance: Winter conditions can leave our complexion dull and tired, due to the decrease in the skin's natural radiance.

To soothe the skin during this cold period, there are various natural solutions.

1 - Intense moisture : Use skin oils rich in essential nutrients to deeply moisturize and restore the skin's balance.


2 - Gentle cleansing: Opt for gentle and natural cleansers to remove impurities without aggressing the skin. Discover our cleansing and exfoliating balms from our facial care set. They will be your allies in this quest for perfect skin.


3 - Toxin elimination: Including organic Black Radish juice which is a rich source of vitamins B, zinc, phosphorus, etc., Rapha 2000 acts as a blood purifier. It eliminates all kinds of toxins as well as body waste. Obviously, if your blood is full of impurities, your skin will suffer too. By using it, you will relieve your dermatological conditions.


4 - Balanced diet: Include foods rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants in your diet to promote healthy skin from the inside out. Whether it's fatty fish rich in omega-3, fruits and vegetables, nuts or seeds, or even avocados, there are many foods that are good for your skin. You can also turn to supplementation to get the essential vitamins and minerals for beautiful skin or even Greens, a concentrated blend of green food powder, herbs, and vegetables.


And to increase your chances of keeping your skin healthy during this season, it is crucial to avoid certain mistakes. Showers or baths that are too hot can further dry out the skin, so opt for a moderate temperature. As we've already told you, hydration is essential! So take the time to choose the right cream for you and don't forget to apply sunscreen to protect your skin from UV rays (Yes, even in winter!). Also, avoid aggressive products that could further irritate your skin already weakened by the cold. Finally, remember to protect your lips with a moisturizing balm to prevent chapping and cracking.
