These months in which we have experienced snow, sub-zero temperatures, strong blizzards, our skin suffers and needs us to take care of it in a more specific way, through a winter facial routine.
Low temperatures weaken the hydrolipidic barrier of the skin, which is the one that covers it, protecting it from external agents such as cold, wind, pollution …
Another of the main functions of this barrier is to maintain hydration, which is why it is so important to help strengthen it with extra care in times when we know that it can suffer more, such as winter.
Without going into too scientific terms, I want you to know that this layer is made up of a lipid fraction that comes from the secretion of sebum and an acidic water fraction. What does this mean? That it is a mixture of water and sweat in balance that protects us and makes our skin look healthy and luminous.
What if it is not in balance? Then in when we observe our damaged skin, with more imperfections, sensitivity …
I want to give you 3 simple tips to improve your winter facial routine and, in this way, protect and take care of the skin on your face.
Take your time when applying the products
Perform facial massages both in the morning and at night at the time of your care routine. These massages help the product penetrate the skin better and its benefits can be noticed sooner.
I recommend them especially for drier skin in which we need to regain lost hydration.
I recommend you read the post I wrote about MY MOMENT care ritual. In addition, in the product sheets on the web, you can find its application form.
Two basics in your winter routine
The first and most important thing is to keep your skin clean, both in the morning and at night. This will be the previous step to applying any treatment routine.
Did you know that after cleaning the hydrolipidic mantle regenerates in a maximum of 15 minutes? Its renewal helps us to keep our skin in balance and protected. You can use Recovery Cleanser or Purify Cleanser.
When it comes to hydration, Moisture + in your day routine will help your skin regain lost water and also fight free radicals. It includes 19 natural and bio ingredients, each carefully selected to provide an advanced solution for deep skin hydration and treatment.
In your night routine you can apply Nutrition, a high-performance natural and biotechnological cream, designed to hydrate, repair and delay the aging processes of the skin. It contains 21 active ingredients of the highest quality! Without a doubt, the next morning you will notice the desired “good face effect”.
Oils for extra nutrition
Do you know Serenity Oil? If you want to know a little more about this organic and calming facial oil, I leave this post with 3 tips to get the most out of Serenity Oil.
Using an oil such as Serenity will help your skin to be elastic again, it will calm irritations and redness and will give you that extra hydration and luminosity that you need at this time of year.
I know textures in oil can be scary but I want you to know that it absorbs quickly and doesn’t feel sticky at all. I advise you to use Active Mist before to moisten the skin so that the oil penetrates better.
Serenity oil is a highly soothing organic facial oil designed to help restore skin elasticity, calm irritations, sunburns and soothe skin dryness.Shop now
