Why is skin dry in winter?

冬季皮肤为什么会干燥?


Moisture is very important for skin, and when the latter get dry, it basically means that moisture is insufficient. The causes can be numerous, such as too frequent bathing or use of hard soaps. Aging and some medical conditions also reinforce this lack of moisture. 水分对皮肤来说非常重要,当皮肤变得干燥时,意味着严重缺乏水分。造成这种结果的因素很多,比如洗澡太频繁或者使用了硬肥皂。衰老和身体状况也会造成水分的缺失。

In winter, the main issue is that the humidity level is much lower both outdoors and indoors, which makes it harder to moisturize properly, since our skin outer layer, the epidermis, has atendency to have similar humidity level as its environment.

冬天,不管是室内还是室外,湿度都很低,这种情况下,我们的皮肤很难得到滋润。因为我们皮肤表层趋于接近所处环境中的湿度。



This results in skin being itchy and dry, but fortunately, you can improve that situation!

这会造成皮肤瘙痒,还有干燥。但是幸运的是,我们可以改善这种情况!

The first step: skin moisturizers

第一步:润肤霜


Skin moisturizers are well-known to take care of winter dryness. They both rehydrate the skin and help it sealing in the moisture. This helps with the water loss acceleration provoked by winter's low humidity as well as indoor heat, which is very common in winter to get warmer. As a result, they suppress most of the dry skin symptoms such as itchiness, cracks and burning feeling.

众所周知,润肤霜可以防止冬季干燥。能够给皮肤补充分,帮助皮肤锁住水分。但是会缓解由于冬季低湿度和室内高温引起的水分流失,这种情况在冬季变暖的时候很常见。因此,润肤霜能够抑制大多数干性皮肤症状,如瘙痒,裂纹和灼热感。

Usually, the thicker and greasier moisturizers are more efficient to treat dry skin, with oil doing most of the work. Due to the absence of water in many moisturizers, they are best use once the skin has been washed and humidified, to help seal the moisture in.

通常情况下,更厚、更油的润肤霜对干性皮肤更有效,其中油脂起到了主要作用。由于润肤霜中缺少水分,最好先清洁皮肤,做好保湿之后再使用,可以帮助我们锁住皮肤中的水分。



Which takes us to our second step: clean water.

接着,我们来到第二步:纯净水。

The second step: clean water

第二步:纯净水


Clean water is essential to avoid dryness. Substances present in water such as chlorine have a very negative effect on the skin, and can reduce your natural defenses against what we saw constitute winter dryness.

纯净水是避免干燥的关键。水中含有的物质,比如:余氯,会对皮肤造成负面影响,降低冬天对干燥的抵抗力。

In China, water has a very large quantity of chlorine inside, and as such, the water quality is not ideal, especially not for expatriates used to cleaner water at home. Excessive chlorine is the main issue for skin problems related to water, and will definitely help damaging your skin during winter.

在中国,水中含有大量的余氯,所以水质并不理想。特别对外籍人士来说,他们自己的国家使用过更干净的水。水中过量的余氯是造成皮肤问题的主要原因,而且冬天的到时候肯定会损害你的皮肤。


What is the best way to reduce chlorine in your water then? Simple: use a water filter! To resolve water-related issues is the primary function of any water filter. In order to help with the chlorine problem specifically, many shower filters have components specifically oriented towards this purpose, with calcium sulfate being the most efficient one, and the one we chose to use at Greenwave.

那么,如何减少水中的氯呢?很简单:使用净水过滤器!净水过滤器的主要功能是解决与水有关的问题。为了减少水中的氯,很多沐浴器在设计的时候都加装了专门过滤的组件,硫酸钙是最有效的,这也是Greenwave正在使用的!


Here is a small list of our dry-skin related products, mostly for shower:

The third step: good air

第三步:良好的空气


While clean water is essential to remove chlorine when you take shower or wash your hands, good air is a very important part for your overall indoor environment. In winter, we are naturally inclined to use heaters to their maximum, to fight the cold. This makes the indoor air especially dry, and will cause it to be favorable to irritations and illnesses such as a cold or the flu. 洗手或洗澡时,关键是去除氯之后的纯净水。但良好的空气对整个室内环境来说是非常重要的。我们倾向于在冬天使用加热器取暖。这样一来,室内的空气就会非常干燥,很容易生病,如感冒或者流感。




In the North of China especially, the air requires some moisturizing, in order to help your organism moisturize as well. A very good solution for this is to use a humidifier: by adding humidity to the environment, they help you fight the indoor dryness levels, at the same time making your use of chlorine-free water and moisturizers more efficient!

尤其在中国的北方,更需要保持空气湿润,让我们的机体正常运转。非常好的解决方法就是使用加湿器:通过增加环境湿度,改善室内干燥的情况,同时使用纯净水过滤器和润肤霜更有效!
