Did you notice how tight and sensitive your skin can feel during the winter months? Just like with the change of season and your skin, we need to adapt with the new changes year round.
Once you start wearing your winter coat, it’s time to wear your winter moisturiser too! The following are the season factors responsible for damaging your skin;
Cold temperatures, wind, central heating, inadequate skincare and sudden change of temperature such as when you are going into a warm place and then step out into freezing cold weather. Brrrrrr…just to think about it!
and not to forget the sun holidays! When we are all to excited to enjoy the sun and everything that comes with it, that we forget to look after our skin!
What to do???
Just adapt your skincare to the climate and your skin. Like a coat, wear a more creamy, heavier moisturiser which will protect and seal your skin against all factors.
When to do??
From mid October to the end of April indulge your skin with nourishment, protection and hydration. Pass this date, like your clothes your skincare can be lighter with the arrival of the good weather. (Don’t forget your SPF!)
Keep it simple! Its not about the packaging or the dream of a miracle.. its about continuity in your skincare and quality ingredients which will make your skin balance and radiant.
- Your skin is tight? It means it is dehydrated, this can affect oily or dry skin.
- Your skin feels rough and is cracking? Bone dry is your answer.
- Your skin is red and flakey? It means it has passed the bone dry stage and has become reactive, sensitive and very unhappy!
Dehydrated skin: Go for the Centella Hydra+ Line. It contains vegetal hyaluronic acid, a molecule which contains 600 times its own weight in water.
Dehydrated and oily: Try the Serum Equilibrium, Creme Equilibrium, and the Camphor Synergy oil.
Dry and Dehydrated: This type of skin needs water and oil, so we would recommend the Crème Jour Lift, Night Elixir and Regenerating Q and Lift Firming Gel Serum. These products together will contribute to fill and plump fine lines and unify the skin complexion.
Bone Dry: The best option for bone dry skin is Centella’s Anti-Age Global Line. Formulated to protect & nourish the epidermis to restore skin firmness & radiance. Plenty of oils to nourish and protect. Rich in Centella Asiatica stem cells, it helps to maintain the natural moisture balance of the skin to visibly restore its elasticity & reduce wrinkles.
Reactive and sensitive: You’re best to go for, Hydraflore Tenderness cream. This smooth cream is ideal for bringing comfort, suppleness & nourishment to sensitive or reactive skin. As a result, the skin is nourished and calm for a happy skin 🙂
