Caring for Your Skin This Winter with Snowfire

As the cold weather sets in, many of us start to experience dry, irritated skin that can range from mildly annoying to downright painful. Chilblains, chapped skin, cracked hands – these are common afflictions that can make it difficult to enjoy the crisp winter days. Thankfully, there is a product designed specifically to provide relief from these frustrating symptoms – Snowfire Chilblains & Chapped Skin Ointment Stick.

What Causes Winter Skin Conditions?

During the winter months, the air becomes very dry. This lack of moisture evaporates the water from our skin more rapidly, leaving it dehydrated. Dehydrated skin is unable to retain moisture well, so it becomes dry and cracked. The dry air also irritates sensitive skin, causing redness and itchiness. Exposure to cold temperatures and wind can damage the skin as well. This combination of factors is why painful skin conditions like chilblains and chapped skin arise far more often in winter.

How Snowfire Helps

Snowfire ointment fights back against winter skin damage using a blend of moisturising and anti-inflammatory ingredients. Emollients in the formula soak into the skin tissue, increasing hydration levels to restore suppleness and smoothness. Occlusive ingredients like paraffin and petrolatum create a protective seal over the skin, locking in moisture and preventing further drying. Essential oils provide anti-inflammatory benefits to soothe red, irritated skin and reduce pain. Used regularly, Snowfire ointment can help prevent painful chilblains and chapped skin this winter.

Convenient Application

One of the best things about Snowfire ointment is how quick and convenient it is to apply. The ointment comes in a solid stick form that you simply glide over the affected area. No messy creams or liquids to pour out and rub in. Just swipe on then rub in with your fingertips. The ointment can also be applied to dressings to treat covered areas.

Trusted Quality Formula

You can trust Snowfire ointment to effectively hydrate and soothe your skin. It carries the CE mark, indicating it meets high standards for quality and safety. The formula contains natural ingredients and is free from harmful chemicals. While some may find the natural essential oils have a strong scent, this is a small price to pay for smooth, comfortable skin all winter long.

Caring for Painful Chilblains

Chilblains, also known as pernio, are painful inflammatory skin lesions that appear as blisters or discoloured patches on the fingers, toes, ears and face. They are caused by exposure to cold, damp conditions. Snowfire ointment helps by reducing inflammation and softening hardened skin around blisters. Regular application helps speed healing of damaged skin cells.

Relieving Chapped, Cracked Skin

When skin becomes extremely dry, it can crack and split open. This chapped, cracked skin can be very painful and prone to infection. By restoring moisture levels and protecting the skin’s surface, Snowfire ointment allows cracked areas to heal while providing soothing relief. The emollients soften hardened, callused skin that has built up over cracked areas.

Repairing Windburned Skin

Exposure to cold, whipping winds can damage the skin, causing redness, stinging and peeling known as windburn. The petrolatum in Snowfire ointment forms a shield over the skin to prevent further wind damage. Soothing essential oils reduce irritation and speed healing of damaged skin.
