Autumn and winter are a difficult time for the skin. That is why intensive and effective care is necessary. Let's talk about the main secrets when choosing products for the cold period.
Why is special care important in cold weather?
In the cold season, our body undergoes a number of changes, because the air becomes dry, the amount of available vitamins and minerals decreases, and the number of stress factors only increases.
"Summer" cosmetics cannot cope with these problems. Often, the products that were enough for you in the warm period do not provide full skin care in the cold. There are 5 nuances that are important to consider when choosing winter and autumn face and body care.
We keep an eye on hydration
In autumn and winter, the skin becomes dry and dull. You need to start maintaining the water balance right from home - buy a humidifier and make sure that the humidity does not fall below 50.
Also, skin care products will come to the rescue: moisturizers and masks must be in your cosmetic bag. Do not forget to take care of moisturizing the whole body. Pay special attention to areas that are exposed to frost and wind gusts - face, hands and neck.
Do not forget about your lips - be sure to use a moisturizing balm before going out.
We take care of power supply
The cold season lacks vitamins and useful microelements. To give the skin everything it needs, give preference to cosmetics with a rich nutritional composition. It can be cream, lotion, body milk, and serum.
Natural oils are great for nourishing and preventing dryness - bring them into your care and don't forget to add extracts and emulsions when taking a bath.
Choosing effective protectionThe two main enemies of the skin in the cold season are the cold and the sun. So, despite the fact that autumn and winter are rarely sunny, ultraviolet radiation does not disappear. Use cosmetics with SPF (this applies to both care and decorative).
It is also important to fight the cold - protective creams for face and body, as well as lip balms will strengthen the dermis and protect against dryness, cracking and inflammation. We recommend choosing cosmetics with a dense and oily texture, even if your skin is prone to oily: in the cold period, the sebaceous glands are not so active. Nourishing oils in the format of balms, lipsticks and glosses are perfect for lips as protection.
Adding restorative agents
Sometimes it is not so easy to protect yourself from the effects of the cold and you have to solve problems instead of preventing them. Restorative cosmetics will come to the rescue. It will help to nourish, moisturize and strengthen the skin of the face and body, as well as restore its elasticity and freshness.
It is worth doing recovery immediately - so you can quickly eliminate the consequences without harming the appearance and condition of the skin.
We take care of ourselves every day
Do not forget about daily rituals: cleanse the skin in the morning and before bed, apply day and night cream, use serums and emulsions that restore and strengthen, give a healthy glow. Once a week, use masks and scrubs, body oils, give your skin a rest from makeup and stress.
And, of course, remember the main secret of winter care - well-chosen cosmetics. Give preference to proven global brands, with whose products you are well acquainted and in whose composition you are 100% sure.
