During the coldest winter, our skin really takes for its cold! A pro offers a contingency plan to be comfortable in our skin, whatever the weather.
1. Gentle cycle
Caroline Debbasch, director of science communications for Vichy, prescribed to clean face morning and evening with a lotion or cleansing milk micellar without rinsing, to prevent the limestone in the water dries out our skin.
2. Low temperatures
It reinvents the ritual bath and shower. In both cases, wash with warm water and it limits the duration of ablutions in a dozen minutes. Otherwise, hello dander and redness!
3. Gentle moisturizing
Farewell soaps and gels for the body: in winter, skin requires oils and rich cleansing creams that remove dirt without dehydrating.
4. Protective Sealants
Because of the dry air and the temperature difference between inside and outside, skin produces less sebum twice than usual during the winter. Result: it is more prone to cracking and itching. To compensate, just engaged in a rigorous routine of hydration. It can be obtained from facials and body -based glycerin (which preserves the natural moisture) and ceramide (repairing), and applied out of the bath or shower to seal the moisture in the skin.
5. Sleep therapy
Once a week, replace night cream with a nourishing facial mask that rinsed out of bed.
