Why does skin become dry in winter?

The cold and the wind are external factors that impact the health of our skin. The skin plays the role of a protective barrier against external aggressions ( cold , dryness, pollution, exposure to UV).

To fully understand, let's take a closer look at the structure of our skin.

Several layers structure our skin:

- The hypodermis : deepest layer.

- THE dermis : thick layer made up of two proteins in the form of fibers (elastin and collagen). Elastin gives elasticity and collagen gives bounce to our skin. With hyaluronic acid, these two fibers form a gel which retains water within the dermis.

- The epidermis : outermost layer which acts as a protective skin barrier against external aggressions. It is made up of lipids (ceramides) and water: it is hydrolipidic film . THE ceramides play the role of cement, constituting a film raincoat.

An alteration in the structure of the skin (composition, lipid content) induces a degradation of this lipid film protective and can lead to skin dryness . The skin becomes dried And rough . Of the cracks may even appear.

To prepare for the winter cold, it is important to adopt a good hydration routine.

The golden rules for taking care of your skin during the winter period

- Stay away from overly aggressive care products: opt for naturalness !

- Wash your skin cold water . In fact, avoid hot water even during this winter period, because it weakens the skin by eliminating the protective layers.

- Choose shower milks or creams instead of traditional soaps to preserve the hydration of your skin.

- The skin must be free of impurities (dead cells) in order to promote cell renewal and derive all the benefits of moisturizing treatments. So, make scrubs occasionally. Don't overdo it at the risk of further weakening your skin and opt for a gentle facial treatment!

- Once your skin has been cleansed, moisturize it throughout the day: nourishing creams (winter dry skin cream, winter day cream), moisturizing serums and masks based on vegetable oils will be your beauty allies! This action will hydrate your dry skin from the outside (a winter face cream is suitable for facial hydration). This is the obligatory step for find nourished and hydrated skin.

Little tip: Use your moisturizer before bed. At night, the skin does not suffer from external aggressions. She takes full advantage of the cream. Effect makeover guaranteed!

- Hydration through cosmetic products can also be supplemented by the use of food supplements.
