The skin care ritual should be adapted to each season of the year, depending on the weather conditions and the nutritional needs of the skin. In winter, when the freezing cold and the cold wind "crackle" the skin and dry it, it is important to adopt a few new care tricks to keep the weather out. Here are some simple tips to consider, to protect your skin and keep it shiny, no matter how unfavorable the weather conditions are!
Opt for a moisturizing and nourishing face cream
In the cold season, it is no longer enough to just apply a moisturizer on your face, as you do in summer, to keep it healthy and protected from the cold. It is advisable to opt for a moisturizing lotion, but made on an oil-based basis, to create a protective layer against the frost.
Choose a cream that suits your skin type, but with a formula suitable for the nutritional needs of the skin during the geriatric season. In this way, the skin is both hydrated, nourished and protected, maintaining its suppleness and shine.
Choose cosmetics and makeup with sun protection
Just because summer has passed and you are no longer going to the beach, does not mean that the ultraviolet have entered the "leave" and does not affect your skin, predisposing it to various conditions and premature aging.
You may not see the sun so often in the "face", but the rays continue to pour both benefits and dangers on the beauty of the skin. Continue to use face creams and photoprotective makeup products to ensure that your skin is protected from the harmful attack of ultraviolet rays.
Use nourishing masks
Face masks in the cold season must be nourishing and contain essential oils that prevent the skin from drying out and dehydrating. Adapt the weekly masks from the skin care ritual by introducing foods and highly nutritious ingredients:
- Argan oil;
- olive oil etc.
Use caution with scrubs or exfoliation products
Exfoliation, through scrubs or gum products, is essential for removing dead cells, blackheads and impurities from the skin surface. But if you have a skin prone to drying, it is best to avoid them or use them less often, in the cold season.
Avoid tonic lotions or cosmetics based on alcohol, which dries the skin, and cleanse your skin of impurities with soothing, moisturizing and nourishing lotions or lotions with a creamy or oily texture.
Avoid washing with hot water
Even if the cold outside urges you to make baths as hot as possible, it is good to clean your skin with cold or slightly warm water, so as not to remove it, along with the impurities and fatty substances on the surface of the skin, which acts as a protective barrier against wind and cold.
Use oil based cleansers
Both the makeup remover and the soap or lotion with which you cleanse your complexion after removing the makeup, must be created with oil to nourish the skin and combat the drying effect. In addition, the oily layer that forms on the surface of the skin creates the barrier that the skin needs to prevent the attack of free radicals.
