SOS Dry Skin
At this time of winter, our skin is attacked by wind, cold, heat and low humidity in the house. Here are 6 tips to take during the cold season. Plus the best care moisturizers.
Against the tight skin and itching, some products are highly effective: shea butter and colloidal oatmeal, for example. Body treatments we use in summer n’hydratent not enough skin in winter. We must offer them care specifically tailored to our northern climate.
Daily personal care may also counteract the effects of drought.Thus, a bath or shower 5 to 10 minutes just to cleanse and moisturize the skin. Beyond 10 minutes, the skin begins to lose its natural oils.
A good time to moisturize your skin
Coming out of the shower, wipes it with a towel without rubbing. Before the skin has lost its moisture, apply body lotion or cream our emphasis on the drier areas. By acting quickly, we allow our care product trap moisture from the skin. We then hydrate the face.
Before going out in cold weather
By a very cold day and windy, so it is expected to go outside for a period exceeding 20 minutes, it protects his skin with a good barrier cream and eye cream. We do not hesitate to bundle up well: gloves, mittens, scarves to cover their faces if necessary, and, of course, a good hat.

Friend number one for dry skin, it moisturizes the air in the house. A humidity of 40-50% is beneficial for the skin.
Not expected to have itching or cracking. As soon as we feel our skin is dry, it moisturizes liberally as often as possible. It is more difficult to relieve a severe drought a drought lightly.
Products to avoid
Most antibacterial soaps, tonics, astringents and any products containing alcohol are harmful to the skin. We prefer to face soap without soap or cleansing milk. Face masks are not recommended during the cold season, especially those which exfoliate the skin. If necessary, we preferred to use a mask that absorbs dirt and grease but does not remove the natural moisture.
