The Ravages of Winter Weather on Sensitive Irish Skin

A new Irish Winter Skincare Survey undertaken by Gardiner Family Apothecary reveals that 7 out of 10 people here report having dry, sensitive and eczema/psoriasis prone skin that is easily damaged by cold winter weather.

Manufactured in Ireland since 1934 by Gardiner Family Apothecary, Elave’s clean skincare formulations are specially created for people with delicate Type I and Type II skin – that’s about 80% of the island’s population.

 

Respondents to our survey revealed that the environment is the biggest trigger for their sensitive skin reactions (45%). Around 9 out of 10 said the most important thing to them is that their face looks good. Some 7 out of 10 said that facial dryness and redness was their biggest skincare challenge.

Joanna Gardiner, CEO, said: “It’s a challenging time of year for people with sensitive Irish skin. Freezing cold, biting winds and changes in temperature draw moisture out of the skin and compromise the dermal barrier, particularly in exposed areas like the face.

“Since dry, stressed-out skin becomes red and sore, prompting itching, cracking and flare-ups of skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis and rosacea, it is vital to repair, moisturise and protect for healthy, beautiful skin that always looks its best. 

“The fact is that you don’t just have to live with the damage caused by the ravages of winter weather - a regular regime using the purest, gentlest, cleanest skincare will make a huge difference to how lovely you look when temperatures dip.”

Other key survey findings were:

  • The next biggest sensitive skin triggers were new skincare products (19%) and scents and dyes (18%).
  • Half pointed to moisturiser as the key product in their beauty regime, followed by cleanser (1 in 3)
  • More than half said they have difficulty finding the right skincare solutions
  • 1 in 4 said they feel they just have to live with their sensitive skin
