If our face tends to dry out more in winter, it’s because the protective barrier that normally allows our skin to retain water and therefore maintain hydration can no longer do its job. These are the lipids that protect our skin and regulate its hydration. In winter, the production of lipids decreases and our face, particularly exposed to climatic events, dries out and becomes fragile. Redness appears, the skin pulls more, it is rougher and less supple to the touch. In winter, the skin is truly less radiant and less luminous. Moreover, the alternation of hot and cold between inside and outside does not help his condition. It is then essential to recreate a layer of hydration and to apply a winter face care adapted to each skin type and each lifestyle. How to choose a face care and what are the best winter face care? We tell you everything!

In winter, our skin is attacked. Between external elements such as cold, pollution, snow or even rain, our skin becomes fragile. In winter, the skin, mainly the face since it is not protected, is less supple, less hydrated and can suffer from dryness, redness and tightness. It is then necessary to opt for a beauty routine and to choose suitable face care. Indeed, our beauty routine differs according to the seasons and also changes over the years. Winter is a particularly difficult season for our skin. First of all, it is important to remove your make-up well and to cleanse your skin well when you wake up. Cleansing milk is a very good solution, because it removes make-up while moisturizing the skin. Massage your face lightly with small circles while removing your make-up, this will circulate the blood. If you prefer a micellar water, choose a special one for sensitive skin. Swap your usual day cream for a care cream enriched with vitamin C, amino acids, hyaluronic acid or even shea butter. Your skin will then regain suppleness, hydration and will be able to nourish itself regularly during the winter. In the evening, after careful make-up removal, apply a fortifying and regenerating night cream. It will work overnight and can renew the deep cells of your face. For those with mature or very dehydrated skin, you can apply a serum before the night cream. More nourishing, the serum is a care concentrate! The hands also need nourishing care and you will find a wide range of hand creams, to moisturize them, repair them or for damaged hands. Of course, we must not forget the balm for the lips, because the latter are particularly sensitized by the cold. There are many, but you can opt for a balm that contains shea butter, vitamin E, borage oil, coconut oil or even olive oil. It is also possible to choose a 2-in-1 lip balm that provides maximum sun protection. Keeping lips plump and hydrated will ensure your lipstick stays on. Finally, don’t forget to exfoliate your face once a week, very gently, in order to eliminate dead skin and give pride of place to cell renewal.
