Winter is here. Harsh tests await our skin, especially the black and mixed skin which retains water less well. To keep it beautiful even at this time of the year, we must give it the necessary boost.
Specific care programs are necessary to help the skin face the winter with serenity.
Facing winter with serenity means taking good care of your skin. Falling temperatures, humidity, wind, snow... are all tests that the skin must go through. Thus mishandled, it finds itself tight, dry, in short, not at the top of its form.
To help it pass the test with flying colors, two basic rules apply!
Rule number 1: eliminate dead cells with exfoliation
Dead cells loaded with melanin accumulate on the surface of the skin. Scrubbing or exfoliation proves to be a great asset to keep it smooth and soft. Beyond two sessions per week, it is a sure way to remove the dead cells from the skin. It is also essential to choose the right product so as not to irritate the skin. An acneic skin for example will only make things worse with a grainy or mechanical scrub that is too abrasive. This type of exfoliation should be left to mixed, normal and oily skin.
Sensitive, dry, blemished or acne-prone skin does not tolerate exfoliation with small grains. It is better in this case to opt for an enzymatic scrub that will remove the residues of dead skin from the epidermis. Take care to make your exfoliation in the evening to leave the skin free to regenerate itself.
Suitable for all skin types, the Biolissime peeling mask acts by eliminating impurities, evens out the complexion and tightens the pores. Formulated with jojoba oil micro-beads, it is very indicated to eliminate blackheads and stimulate blood circulation. In addition, this active ingredient helps eliminate toxins, combats vasoconstriction created by the cold and allows better oxygenation of the tissues. Papain, an enzyme naturally present in papaya is also part of the composition of this care and ensures an intense cleansing.
Rule number 2: moisturize your skin without moderation
Whatever the season, the skin needs to be moisturized to slow down its aging and protect it from external aggressions. This is all the more true in winter because, producing less sebum, it dehydrates easily. Tightness, discomfort and rough texture are common symptoms of skin dryness. The protocol to follow to overcome this problem is to moisturize your skin without moderation. During the day, remember to apply a day cream. Prefer creams essentially designed with natural active ingredients such as jojoba oil, aloe vera, shea butter, among others. In addition to acting on hyperpigmentation, Biolissime's cream has an SPF25 and protects against free radicals.
The moisturizing cream is to be applied after each cleaning, morning and evening and after each exfoliation because it is necessary to take care to nourish the skin. The skin is then more receptive to the care. It is best to agree weekly on a moisturizing mask that will boost it in depth. But if no mask is available, a serum with a higher concentration of active ingredients can be just as effective.
Let's give our skin the care it deserves, it will say thank you!
