Your skin's needs in winter

Ah, winter! The season of cozy sweaters, hot chocolates, and snowy landscapes. But although it has its charms, winter is not your skin's best friend. Between the bitter cold, the freezing wind, and the changing climate, your skin really needs a helping hand to stay healthy. Let's explore together your specific needs during this period, and how to limit the effects of external aggressions on the skin to shine in the cold.

I) A season that puts your skin to the test

Winter can transform your skin with the appearance of dryness, tightness or even redness. You know that crocodile skin feeling? Well, that's exactly what cold, wind, and climate change do to your skin.
For what ? The problem is that winter cold and wind reduce the humidity in the air, which dries out the skin. In addition, cold temperatures slow down sebum production and attack the natural hydrolipidic film that keeps your skin hydrated and protected. Result ? The skin barrier is weakened, your skin is uncomfortable with tightness and redness appears.

And that's not all. Although hot showers are comforting after a freezing day, they make dry skin worse. Indeed, heat attacks the natural oily film of your skin which protects it and maintains hydration. Additionally, hot water dilates blood vessels making the skin appear red and irritated. It is therefore more sensitive and needs a boost to counter these winter effects.

II) How to compensate for the effects of these attacks on your skin?

The key is to find the right balance between hydration and nutrition to replenish the skin's protective barrier and thus be protected against external aggressions such as wind.

First, let's talk about hydration. When temperatures drop, it is essential to use creams and serums rich in moisturizing active ingredients such as Aloe Vera or Hyaluronic Acid to help counter the evaporation of water due to external aggressions. The goal is to strengthen the skin's hydrolipidic film to keep it hydrated.

But hydrating is not enough. At the same time, you must nourish your skin. Oils, butters, and plant extracts are ideal because they provide the skin with the fatty acids and vitamins necessary to keep it supple, soft, and healthy. Choose rich treatments to intensely nourish and replenish the protective film.

You must also apply these tips to your daily life, particularly through a diet rich in fatty acids, omega 3 and 6 and vitamins. It is also important to drink at least 1.5L of water per day even if you feel the need less than in summer.

III) Your complete and ideal routine for winter

Now we can move on to the practical part and put together your beauty routine to survive the winter. Here are the key steps to taking care of your skin from head to toe during the intensely cold months.

Facial care :

1. Double Cleaning:

Even in winter, do not neglect this step for fear of damaging your skin even more. It is essential to remove the day's impurities using a makeup remover and then a cleanser. Opt for our Gentle Micellar Gel which captures makeup without harming your skin. For the second step of double cleansing, we recommend our Cleansing Gel enriched with ultra-gentle natural surfactants.

2. Exfoliation:

Contrary to what you might think, it is important to exfoliate your skin even in winter! This helps eliminate dead cells for better penetration of your treatments. Use our Organic Exfoliating Peel which has a dual action with a mechanical and enzymatic exfoliation. If you have sensitive skin you can settle for enzymatic exfoliation, otherwise use circular movements to perform a mechanical exfoliation using the soft and fine jojoba beads to stimulate cell renewal.

3. Hydration:

After exfoliation your skin is ready to receive treatment. Apply our Organic Radiance Soothing Gel which soothes thirsty skin effectively for 24 hours and restarts the skin's hydration mechanisms. It also reduces redness which is more present during this period and strengthens the hydrolipidic barrier. Complete your routine with our Thirst-Quenching Eye Mask enriched with moisturizing and regenerating active ingredients to take care of your delicate eye contour and awaken your eyes.

4. Nutrition:

Alternate your routine with richer treatments that nourish your skin. To do this, apply our Precious Nutritive Organic Oil, mainly in the evening, to provide your skin with the necessary lipids and replenish the oily film on the skin which protects it from attacks. With its ultra-dry finish, it repairs and strengthens the skin without leaving a greasy feel. It's the secret to softer, more luminous skin.
Concerning the lips, this delicate area requires special attention because it is more sensitive to external aggressions. As soon as you feel the need, apply our Banana Lip Balm to intensely nourish and repair your chapped lips, leaving a delicious and captivating scent of banana.

Body care :

Even if it's hidden under thick sweaters and long pants, don't forget to take care of the rest of your body. Here too you must continue to exfoliate your skin with our Exfoliating Shower Gel which in a single gesture gently cleanses and exfoliates your skin. Then apply our SOS Nourishing Body Milk which regenerates and softens your skin.

By integrating these steps and our products into your daily routine you can say goodbye to crocodile skin and hello to soft, supple, and radiant skin, even in the middle of winter!
