Coldness affects women's beauty and health! Causes and remedies


Physical condition is important for maintaining beauty and health. In particular, "sensitivity to cold," which is common among Japanese women, is not merely cold hands and feet; it can affect the condition of the skin and overall health. However, it can be improved if appropriate measures are taken.

This section details the causes of cold sensitivity, how it affects beauty and health, and how cold sensitivity can be improved through diet and lifestyle modifications. If you have a cold-related problem or want to improve your beauty and health, please read on.


General definition of cold sensitivity and its symptoms and characteristics found in women.

Coldness is generally a term used to describe symptoms such as cold hands and feet and difficulty in warming up. Some people are aware of this situation all year round, regardless of room temperature or season, while others have particularly strong symptoms during the winter months. Cold sensitivity is found in both men and women, but is particularly common in women.

Although the definition of cold sensitivity is not generally defined by medical science, it is generally understood to be caused by poor body temperature regulation and poor circulation. This can be triggered by autonomic nervous system disorders, hormonal imbalance, and lifestyle disorders.

Women are particularly affected by hormones, and are therefore more likely to have cold symptoms. Women's unique constitution, in which body temperature fluctuates with the menstrual cycle, is said to be one of the factors causing symptoms of sensitivity to cold. In addition, since female hormones have the effect of constricting blood vessels, this causes poor blood flow, making the hands, feet, and other terminal parts of the body susceptible to cold.

In addition, cold sensitivity is often associated with symptoms such as swelling, headaches, and constipation, which require systemic health management. Therefore, body temperature management is a very important factor in maintaining women's health and beauty.


Causes of Cold Sores and Their Impact on Beauty and Health

Common causes of coldness range from poor blood flow, autonomic imbalance, and hormonal imbalance. These factors can cause cold symptoms that seem to be particularly prevalent in women.

Main Factors Details
poor circulation Blood vessels constrict and blood flow stagnates due to stress and irregular lifestyle.
Autonomic nervous system ataxia Disturbance of the autonomic nervous system due to stress, overwork, irregular lifestyle, etc.
Hormonal imbalance Hormonal fluctuations associated with the menstrual cycle in women.

The body is lined with small blood vessels, which distribute heat throughout the body to maintain body temperature. However, when blood vessels constrict and blood flow stagnates due to stress or irregular lifestyle, it becomes difficult to regulate body temperature. This is one of the causes of sensitivity to cold.

The autonomic nervous system also plays an important role in the regulation of body temperature and blood flow. When the autonomic nervous system is disturbed due to stress, overwork, or irregular lifestyle, it affects the body's thermoregulatory function, causing sensitivity to cold.

Especially in women, there are hormonal fluctuations associated with the menstrual cycle. This controls the contraction and dilation of blood vessels, causing fluctuations in body temperature. Hormonal imbalance is therefore a major cause of sensitivity to cold.

The combination of these causes of cold affects many different parts of the body. Specifically, poor blood flow to the skin can cause rough, dry skin and wrinkles. Hormonal imbalance can also cause acne and skin problems.

In addition, cold temperatures can also affect internal organ function. In particular, the digestive system functions poorly when the body temperature drops, which can lead to constipation and gastrointestinal problems. These affect not only beauty, but overall health as well, so it is important to improve cold sensitivity.

Below is a summary of the possible risks due to cold in women.

  • dry skin
  • sensitive skin
  • lack of luster
  • slack
  • wrinkle
  • acne
  • Hair dryness
  • have brittle nails

To solve these problems, we must first improve the cold itself. Improving blood circulation improves the supply of nutrients to skin cells and promotes metabolism. Improving internal organ function also normalizes the body's overall metabolism, contributing to the maintenance of healthy skin, hair, and nails.

However, improving cold sensitivity cannot be done overnight. Therefore, in the next section, diet and other lifestyle modifications may alleviate the symptoms of cold sensitivity.


How does diet affect coldness?

This section will detail how diet affects cold sensitivity and how improving cold sensitivity can have cosmetic benefits.

The food we consume is a source of energy for the body and also plays an important role in maintaining body temperature. Therefore, diet has a significant influence on the improvement of coldness. Specifically, choosing foods that warm the body and eating a nutritionally balanced diet will help improve sensitivity to cold.

Warming foods include spices such as ginger and chili peppers, garlic, onions, apples, grapes, and almonds. These foods are believed to improve blood circulation and raise body temperature.

In addition, a nutritionally balanced diet is necessary to maintain normal metabolism. Vitamin E and B vitamins are especially important for improving blood circulation and maintaining body temperature. These vitamins are found in vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and fish.

Improving cold circulation is directly related to maintaining healthy skin, hair, and nails. Improved blood circulation facilitates the delivery of nutrients to skin cells and promotes metabolism. As a result, skin is moisturized and regains elasticity and radiance. A diet rich in nutrients also supports healthy hair and nail growth.

Foods and cooking methods to improve cooling

Diet has a major impact on our health. Dietary choices are extremely important, especially when we are trying to improve our cold. Let's take a closer look at some foods and their preparation methods that can help improve cold.

First, as mentioned a little earlier, pungent foods are generally effective in improving coldness. Ginger, chili pepper, and sansho (pepper) improve blood circulation and raise body temperature. Incorporating these ingredients into daily cooking can promote an increase in body temperature.

Ginger contains a component called gingerol, which raises body temperature. Adding ginger to soups, stir-fries, and teas is an easy way to consume ginger. Capsaicin in chili peppers also raises body temperature. Use it in curry, chili con carne, spicy stir-fries, etc.

Other recommended foods that warm the body and activate metabolism include almonds and spinach, which are rich in vitamin E, and whole grains and liver, which are rich in vitamin B group vitamins.

However, consuming only these foods will not improve cold sensitivity. It is also important to eat a well-balanced diet and maintain a balance between calorie intake and calorie consumption. In addition to diet, it is also necessary to review the entire daily lifestyle, including moderate exercise and good sleep, to improve cold sensitivity.


Lifestyle for improving coldness

In addition to diet, there are other lifestyle adjustments that can be effective in improving cold sensitivity. Moderate exercise, stress management, and good sleep are all necessary to improve cold sensitivity.

Lifestyle changes contribute to the overall health of the body as well as to coldness, so people who are prone to coldness can improve not only their diet, but also their overall daily lifestyle.

moderate exercise

Exercise improves blood circulation and metabolism, which is very helpful for improving cold sensitivity. Try starting with light exercise that you can easily continue. Examples include walking, yoga, and stretching. Regular physical activity improves blood flow and contributes to maintaining body temperature.

Stress Management

Stress management is also extremely important. Stress can disrupt the autonomic nervous system and impair circulation. Reduce daily stress by adopting methods that promote relaxation, such as deep breathing, meditation, and enjoying hobbies.

Sleep Quality

It is not only necessary to sleep a lot, but also to improve the quality of sleep. Good sleep helps regulate the autonomic nervous system and improves blood circulation. Relaxation before bed and choosing the right bedding can promote deep sleep, so we should improve the quality of our sleep and make sure we are in good physical condition.



Cold is not just an uncomfortable condition; it can have a significant impact on beauty and health. However, with an understanding of its causes and appropriate dietary and lifestyle modifications, cold sensitivity can be well managed. One way to improve the condition through diet is to be aware of the selection of warming foods and cooking methods.

In addition, lifestyle changes, such as moderate exercise and good sleep, can also contribute to improving cold sensitivity. If your cold sensitivity does not improve or if you experience other symptoms, we recommend that you consult a specialist.
