During the winter, the skin on our body can become drier due to the low humidity indoors and outside. To help your skin from the redness, deshydratation and tightness, an extra care during this season change is essential to keep it hydrated and healthy.
Keeping your skin hydrated starts with a gentle, emollient, fragrance-free cleanser enriched with natural ingredients, like glycerin or shea butter. The key is to avoid alcohol-based lotions as they tend to dry out and weaken the skin.
Our skin normally sheds its dead cells every 28 days, but as we age, this rate of cell turnover slows down. Other factors such as lack of hydration, sun exposure, and dry skin can cause dead cells to build up on the surface of the skin. Exfoliation is necessary in winter because it removes dead cells that clog pores and prevent the skin from breathing, thus increasing the absorption of creams and concentrates applied later. We recommend that you include this step one to four times a week, depending on the exfoliant, because if done more often, you risk over-exfoliating the skin and irritating it.
Facial care in winter is very important since it is one of the only parts of the body, with the hands, which is in permanent contact with the outside and the inside.
To properly protect your skin in winter, nourishing creams and serums with active ingredients rich in fatty acids such as butters (cocoa, shea, coconut) or oils (hemp, sunflower calendula, borage, evening primrose) are perfect. You can even settle for a vegetable oil with a little aloe vera or hyaluronic acid (for water supply)!
Once or twice a week, take the time to make a nourishing mask to allow time for the treatments to deeply nourish and plump up the skin! All skin types are affected by this cocooning treatment!
4. Don’t forget your lips !
The skin covering the lips is very thin and therefore tends to dry out or crack in winter. By the way, did you know that this is the part of the body that lets the most moisture escape? Fortunately, there are several ways to have beautiful lips despite the cold weather.
Never pull on dead skin and avoid biting your lips. Instead, use a balm to repair the lips and protect them. Remember to always have a lip balm with you to nourish them, but also protect them from the cold. If you don’t particularly like lip balms, vegetable butter is also good.
5. Drink Water
It’s a fact: in winter, when the temperatures are very low and the cold biting, we are much less thirsty than in summer, and we drink less. Well this is a very bad habit that should quickly be lost!
Always remember to drink water, between 1 L and 1.5 L per day. It is also possible to opt for hot drinks, particularly appreciated in winter: herbal tea, fruit infusion, soup, tea, coffee, milk or hot chocolate.
