How to Treat Windburns from Cold Winter Winds?

Expert Tips from a Leading Esthetician School in Toronto

Windburn is one of those skin effects that no one thinks about, until you have it, of course. While there is little you can do to prevent your skin from peeling after a windburn, there are ways to help your skin heal faster. Also, keep in mind that there are treatment options to improve the look of your skin and might help prevent wind burnt skin in the future.

Also, be aware of how you get the wind burnt skin. While it naturally comes from the wind (hence the name), the cold temperatures, low humidity, and breezy conditions in combination cause the burning you see on your skin. All these factors deplete your skin of precious natural oils, leading to redness, dryness, irritation, and a nasty case of peeling.

Whether you caught a case of windburn after a day on the slopes, or just out-and-about on a typical Ontario windy day, there are ways to tackle the red blotches, peeling skin, and discomfort.

Here are a few useful tips from the experts at our leading esthetician school in Ontario:

  • Warm Up Your Skin – Windburn results from a combination of factors, but one important reason for drying out the face is cold temperatures. Restore your skin with a gentle, warm compress. Do not warm your skin by blowing hot air, because this irritates the skin further.
  • Moisturize, Moisturize, and Moisturize Again! – It sounds redundant, but for a good reason. Your wind burnt skin needs maximum moisture to recover. Apply aloe vera or another gentle, all-natural moisturizer to the skin. Do so often and be generous. Extra moisture helps the healing process, soothes the burn, and keeps peeling to a minimum. Your skin is dry and thirsty, so you must give it what it needs to rejuvenate.
  • Tend to the Peel – Skin peeling after windburn is common and unavoidable at times. Apply a super-hydrating facial cream that uses anti-inflammatory extracts. Cream prevents further peeling and cracking of the skin.
  • Cleanse the Skin – Use a glycerin-based cleanser without suds. Apply it to the affected areas to retain your skin’s natural oils. No matter what, do not pick at peeling skin.
  • Avoid Irritants – To keep your skin from turning into a rash-covered, swollen, peeling mess, avoid irritants until the skin heals thoroughly. Irritants include harsh chemical compounds, suds-producing cleansers, scrubs, and makeup.
  • Know When to Seek Professional Help – If the peeling and pain do not go away, or you notice signs of an infection (redness, swelling, or pus), and you have blisters; you must seek treatment right away.

Naturally, prevention is always the best cure. If you are outside on low-humidity, high-wind, and cold days, try to cover your face as much as possible. In addition to protection, apply sunscreen generously to keep your face moisturized and establish a barrier.

Treat your skin and prevent environmental factors from disrupting your naturally beautiful skin. Consider taking a Skin Care Specialist course.
