Feet suffer a lot from cold weather because they are at the extremities of the body. In order to preserve their normal temperature even in cold weather conditions, some physiological alterations happen:
· a slow micro blood circulation, due to vasoconstriction
· a decrease in the production of sebum, making the skin less elastic and rougher.
These factors make the skin more fragile. In real cold conditions, frostbite and chilblains may occur.
Akileine Winter Cream is especially formulated to prevent them.
