Beautiful skin, even in winter

How to keep skin hydrated and glowing, even in winter?

Winter and the cold are coming and your skin is starting to transform, it's time to adapt your moisturizers to comfort your skin. Now is the time to use rich creams or balms, both for the face and the body.

In this article, we will explain the effects of temperature changes on the skin and we will provide you with some advice on how to adapt your skincare routine to these changes.

What are the effects of these climate changes on the skin?

When winter and cold arrive, it doesn't take long for the skin to send us the first signals of discomfort , dryness and itching .
The reason ? The drop in temperatures, the cold wind, the variations in heat between inside and outside, but also unsuitable beauty routines.

How does the skin react to cold? The action of cold on the skin 

Exposure to cold is a real test for the skin, especially since it is the organ most exposed to temperature changes! Indeed, temperature variations between indoors and outdoors cause a significant loss of water from the hydrolipidic film , which leads to drying of the skin . Problem: in winter, we tend to feel less thirsty and therefore hydrate less. As a result, this water loss is never really replenished and the skin becomes drier and drier. The other consequence is that the hydrolipidic film no longer performs its protective barrier function, which makes the skin even more vulnerable to cold air and wind .

In addition, it can also be noted that the skin plays an important role in regulating body temperature . To protect us from the cold, the vessels of the skin will contract to prevent heat loss and protect vital organs . This temperature regulation function is essential to us, but you should also know that it leads to less good vascularization of the skin. As a result, the epidermis is less oxygenated and can suffer in the long term from chapping , microcuts and flaking .

Generally speaking, here are the most observed long-term effects of cold on the skin:

  • poor blood circulation

  • skin dryness

  • increased sensitivity (peeling, inflammation, tightness, redness, discomfort, intolerance to certain cosmetics, etc.)

  • slowdown in healing

  • poorer skin elasticity
