Winter beauty routine

on a mission for protection!

Chapping, cracking, dryness or even burns: the cold can do a lot of damage to your skin. Thankfully, there are ways to adapt your beauty routine to limit the damage! Here’s a quick how-to with 5 tips.

CHOOSE RICH MOISTURIZERS

When the temperature drops, humidity levels drop, too! That means our skin dries out more easily and the layer of oil and water that protect our skin against aggression is less effective. The result: greater risk of redness, irritation and discomfort. 

To correct the situation, it’s important to choose day and night products that really help your skin retain its moisture so it doesn’t dry out. Look for thick, rich, creamy products that feature nourishing and thirst-quenching ingredients, like vegetable oils, shea butter, ceramides and hyaluronic acid. For optimal absorption, apply your products to freshly washed skin that’s still moist. 

If your skin is particularly sensitive or damage, choose a super moisturizer (like a cold cream), that offers deep repairing properties for the affected areas and protects your skin from the cold. It’s also a good choice for rough-skin areas like elbows, knees, heels and hands.

GIVE YOUR CARE PRODUCTS A HELPING HAND

Looking for a more intensive nourishing treatment? Apply a little serum to your face before you use your moisturizer. It will help boost the effects of your care products and increase your skin’s ability to protect itself.

If you want a healthy looking complexion despite the weather and the lack of sun, you can always add a booster to your morning routine! Choose a product enriched with vitamin C and hyaluronic acid. Apply four or five drops after you wash your face and your complexion will have an unseasonably beautiful glow.

PROTECT YOUR HANDS

Cold weather means chapped, cracked and irritated hands. To prevent this, try applying an ultra-moisturizing cream before putting on your gloves when you go out! And make sure you always have some handy (pun intended) for use after you wash your hands. The chemicals in tap water can often dry out your skin!

Another good trick is to apply a generous layer of moisturizer to your hands just before you go to bed and wear gloves to help ensure maximum absorption.

DON’T FORGET THE SUN

We sometimes forget about wearing sunscreens when the mercury drops, but the effects of the sun (and UV rays) are still at work even when it’s cold out! In fact, the sun’s reflection on the snow can be particularly dangerous. That’s why you should never leave the house without protecting your face with a product that has an SPF of at least 30, and one that counters both UVB and UVA rays!

Psst! Your lips are part of your face! Don’t forget to protect them with a rich balm!
