Your winter beauty routine: 6 tips for protecting your skin from the cold

Chapping, cracking, dryness or even burns: the cold can do a lot of damage to our skin.To prevent this, it is essential to choose hydrating, rich and smooth care for the entire body. To find the right products, we talk to our Jean Coutu cosmetologist Jean Coutu and follow these 6 tips!

1

Swap your light moisturizer for something thicker

Nourish your dry skin morning and night with a thick cream. This will provide more nutrients than the light products you use in the summer. The active ingredients you want are hyaluronic acid (this year's star ingredient) ceramides, shea butter and moisturizing oils.

THE RIGHT STEP

Apply the moisturizer on clean skin that's still damp to optimize absorption.

2

Daily booster, a new moisturizing superstar

To keep our skin bright and smooth when the temperature drops, we add a product rich in vitamin C and hyaluronic acid to our morning routine. 4 or 5 drops are enough for a boost of radiance!

THE RIGHT STEP

Combine the treatment with sunscreen (FPS 15 at least)for a luminous complexion… that is not afraid of the light!

Prevent redness around the eyes and lips with an adapted lip contour cream

High winds can often cause the appearance of small dilated blood vessels in the corner of the eyes, which in turn can lead to irritated skin. Calming skin therapy products will protect your skin from the ill effects of harsh weather.

THE RIGHT STEP

An interesting fact: most eye contour treatments can also be used around the lips.

Use cold cream to protect yourself from extreme weather conditions

THE RIGHT STEP

We always carry a tube in our bag, and reapply every time we wash our hands.

6

Don’t forget the sun

We sometimes forget when the mercury drops far below zero, but the effect of the sun (and UV rays) continues!The sun’s reflection on the snow is particularly dangerous. So we never leave the house without protecting our face.We aim for a moisturizing formula with a SPF of at least 30.

THE RIGHT STEP

The lips are also part of the face ... We do not forget to coat them with a protective balm!
