We can say with certainty that seasonal dry skin belongs to a group of irritating problems that we experience during the winter. Between the lack of humidity in the air and strong wind, it is probably time to renew your care routine to solve the problem of peeling and lifeless skin.

Cold days during the winter affect our skin badly, causing less discomfort, but also exacerbation of existing skin diseases such as dermatitis, so careful care is also needed. To know more about your problem and what product to cure your skin, we’ve listed some examples of skin problems where we can help.



Dermatitis is a general term that describes skin irritation. It is a common condition that has many causes and occurs in many forms and usually involves itching, dry skin or a rash on swollen and reddened skin. It may cause skin blisters or become flaky.



There is also atopic dermatitis, an allergic condition of the skin called eczema, which can cause itching, redness, flaking and peeling. Each type of dermatitis may look a little different and tend to appear on different parts of your body. Signs and symptoms of various types of dermatitis include:

– Atopic dermatitis (eczema) – redness and rash that usually starts in infancy and occurs where the skin flexes – inside the elbows, behind the knees and in front of the neck. People with an allergic condition may feel worse during the colder season.

– Contact dermatitis – also redness and rash that appear where the skin has come in contact with substances that irritate the skin or cause an allergic reaction and may develop blisters.

– Seborrheic dermatitis – a condition that causes peeling and red skin. It usually affects fatty areas of the body, such as the face, upper chest, and back, and can be a long-lasting condition with periods of improvement but also seasonal deterioration.


The scratches formed on the skin consist of dried serum, blood or pus. They can cause inflammatory or infectious skin diseases, such as impetigo, but once the wound has completely dried, it is no longer at risk of infection or infection due to a dried layer of blood or the like, which protects the skin from bacterial penetration.



The winter period further dries the wounds on the skin, and new medical research has shown that, in humid conditions, the natural healing process of the wound is accelerated because the moist environment prevents the formation of scratches, resulting in properly healed skin. Therefore, in colder days, it is necessary to give your skin enhanced care to avoid the formation of dry wounds.



During the winter, we are accustomed to using central heating, dry air and daily showering with chlorine-enriched water, which have a very adverse effect on our skin and lead to burning, itching, and irritation with redness. All these visible changes occur after damage to the protective layer of the skin of the body and face, so basic care is focused on maintaining and repairing the damaged layer.




With a big change in time, changes in skincare are also needed to be introduced. In the colder months, expect redness and dry, flaky skin.
