Leyla Cesaret Ergül, a lecturer, mentioned the importance of skin care in seasonal transitions, as in every season, and said, “Changing weather conditions during seasonal transitions differ according to skin types, the pores of the skin tighten with the cooling of the air, and an increase in the secretion of the skin, called sebum, produced by the sebaceous glands is observed; It reduces the amount of blood in the circulatory system to maintain body temperature, and with this decrease, the skin cannot be supplied with enough blood and becomes colorless and dull. For this reason, some measures should be taken to prevent the skin from being affected by cold and dry weather conditions and to adapt.
“NO RESULTS WITH NON-CLEAN SKIN”
Emphasizing that the most important step to achieve a smooth, bright and clean skin is skin cleansing, Ergül said, “No matter what you apply to an unclean skin with clogged pores, it is not possible to get a good result. Cleaning the dead cell layer called keratin on the skin will prevent the formation of bacteria by providing hygiene on the skin surface. Since any product used without cleansing the skin will cause clogging of the pores, the skin must be purified from dirt and dead skin. PH balance is a very important factor in skin products. Support can be obtained from creams, foams, gels or cleansers produced for acne-prone skin, suitable for skin type, that will prevent the skin from drying out, clean it without irritating the skin.
“ANY PRODUCT NOT SUITABLE FOR SKIN TYPE SHOULD BE USED”
Stating that the amount of moisture required by different skin types is different, Ergül continued as follows:
“The skin that is most affected by the seasonal transitions and needs moisture is dry skin. The skin needs more moisture during this period. With drying, the lines on the skin become clear, the skin dries and flakes appear. In this period when intense moisture is needed, restorative night creams should be used as well as moisturizers. Oily skin should not use oily moisturizers and masks. The skin should be cleaned by maintaining the PH value and water-based products should be used. Moisturizers developed in accordance with the skin characteristics of mixed skin should be used or supplemented with two different products according to the skin feature. Skin care should be an indispensable part of daily life, not only in seasonal transitions. When planning skin care, it is absolutely necessary to consider the lifestyle. Many factors, such as traveling a lot, spending a lot of time outside or not going out much, smoking and alcohol use, cause skin care needs to change. For this reason, it is very important for skin health to choose products that contain ingredients that will meet the changing needs of the skin in changing periods, taking into account the effects of the season on life when choosing your care products during the seasonal transitions.
INSIDE SUPPLEMENT IS VERY IMPORTANT
Lecturer Leyla Cesaret Ergül, who said that daily water consumption directly affects the functioning of metabolism, said, “When enough water is not consumed, all metabolism from the circulatory system to the digestive system is affected and the initial skin health deteriorates as the toxins accumulated in the body cannot be removed. For this reason, in addition to skin cleaning and care, daily water consumption should be considered and an average of 1.5 liters of water should be drunk during seasonal transitions. In addition, eating healthy, sleeping regularly, exercising and staying away from stress are important for our skin health during seasonal transitions, as well as for our whole life. Protein-rich foods, as they are rich in iron, accelerate blood circulation and strengthen skin health. In addition, foods rich in Omega-3 and Selenium (walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds) help us to protect our skin health. Vitamins A, C and E are also important for our skin health. Vitamin A supports collagen production, increasing elasticity and keeping the skin young. It prevents problems such as flaking and eczema on the skin. Vitamin C increases cell regeneration and prevents possible lesions. Vitamin E prevents the circulation of free radicals that damage the skin and increases the water holding capacity of the skin.
