The days are getting shorter, the sun goes down earlier, we start to get out our comfy blankets…the winter is here. You can already start to anticipate and prepare your skin to face the cold and to not suffer too much.
Between the fall in brightness, falling temperatures, the accumulation of stress, rain, wind, snow, our skin is under strain at this time of year. Here are in this article some basic rules to help your skin spend the best armed winter possible:
1. Clean and exfoliate
Because we try to wear more makeup in winter to look better, the skin doesn’t breathe as well as usual. In order to unclog pores that are soiled by make-up and pollution, make sure to clean your skin every day by using a suitable cleanser (milk, mousse, cleansing lotion ...), which will restore its radiance and freshness. Once or twice a week, complete your treatment routine with a scrub to eliminate dead cells, which will promote better absorption of the cream.
In order to fight external aggressions in winter and to alleviate this sensation of tugging, our skin must above all be hydrated. Apply a moisturizer every morning, preferably with a UV protection rating. In the evening, on a cleaned and cleansed skin, apply a night cream, richer than the morning cream. Adopt once a week for a moisturizing mask to apply after the scrub, to deeper regenerate the skin.
Moisturizing your skin also moisturizes your body by making sure you drink a lot. In winter the sensation of thirst is less obvious than in summer, and yet the skin craves water! It is recommended to drink 1.5 liters of water per day. And to boost the radiance of the complexion, you can opt for drinks based on beta-carotene, antioxidants and vitamins.
There is no miracle cream that is worth a good night's sleep. Sleeping is one of the best beauty tips! The older we get, the more our skin will show the lack of sleep.
Sleep is the time of regeneration of all cells in our body. It is at night that all our small cells work, the circulation of the blood is also more important at night, which allows to give energy to your cells to regenerate and to the latter to better oxygenate.
