How to protect your skin during winter


During a cold winter our skin is going through a test. Redness, dehydration, tugging ... To fight against external aggressions due to harsh cold and wind, it is essential to have a beauty routine adapted to the winter season.



1. Moisturize the facial skin deeply


Starting from November our skin no longer has the same needs. The composition of the skin's fatty acids changes in the winter, and naturally becomes drier. For the face, it is advisable to choose a very nourishing texture like a lipid replenishing cream, rather than an oil. It will penetrate deeply into the epidermis and helps soothe feelings of tugging or itching, without the risk of greasing the skin or causing pimples. While moisturizing and repairing the skin in the evening is a priority, most women in the UK need to add extra care in the morning, even as a make-up base. On the other hand, to remove make-up it is absolutely necessary to avoid the sparkling products, rather use a milk or a micellar lotion which are softer for the face.



2. Protect your whole body from aggression


When our extremities are cold, the blood does not circulate, so the skin is not nourished and dry, it becomes fragile and heals much less well. A hand skin regenerating creams or balms can be used once or twice a day because they contain “good” fatty acids and healing agents, so is often more effective than a moisturizer.



3. Prevent your skin from discomfort


A day in the city or office in winter doesn’t really require any sun protection. However, if you go for a walk on a sunny day or if you go skiing, it is essential. If you have skin prone to redness that gets worse in the winter, it is better to use a green-tinted anti-redness cream, it will regulate the ability of small vessels to expand, or a BB cream. Finally, if you do not like oily or thick stuff, it is advisable to make a moisturizing mask two or three times a week, paying particular attention to areas where the skin is more fragile. A serum can also be effective if you have symptoms of tightness or if the skin is rough after washing, in addition to a cream applied daily.



4. Adapt your diet


Tip # 1: Drink, drink, drink (water, of course). In winter we often forget that we not only perspire, but in addition, we live in heated places, so in a very dry atmosphere. Some foods are also interesting to put on your plate during the winter. Especially those that contain Omega 3, essential fatty acids that the skin really needs to ensure cell cohesion and tightness of the epidermis. It is found in borage oil, rapeseed, oily fish, walnuts, lamb's lettuce, etc. Conversely, it is better to avoid industrial foods because they contain saturated fats that aggravate the phenomenon of irritability of the skin in winter. If you follow most of these tips, normally everything should be fine.
