Winter is starting to creep up and although it may be while until we get some hot sun again, our face needs to be pampered and protected... It is well known, the cold, wind, central heating and the temperature differences do not mix well with the skin. Dehydrated skin, dryness, redness, dull complexion, it is put to the test! But don't panic, by choosing the right products and opting for a beauty routine adapted to the season, your skin will regain all its hydration and radiance. Let us tell you everything in four steps!
1.Prepare your skin to receive the best nutrients
We can never say it enough: to have beautiful, nourished and glowing skin, the make-up removal-exfoliation-mask step is essential, whatever the age and in all seasons! After gently ridding the skin of its impurities with the Oligo Cleansing Gel, remember to eliminate dead cells, once or twice a week, with the Exfoliating Mask. Its two-step action (astringent red algae + volcanic rock mineral powder) guarantees an immediate boost of radiance. And the stains will be reduced! Complete with the Cream Mask as needed: with its restorative formula and its texture rich in oils and shea butter, your skin will be nourished and soothed instantly.
2. Hydrate and nourish your skin to perfection
In Summer, the skin loves light and airy water-based textures: gel, gel-cream, milk... Change of regime in winter: under the effect of external aggressions (cold, wind, heating, changes in temperatures...), it calls for richer and more "pampering" textures to protect, maintain good hydration, nourish and calm skin down. The Anne Semonin Extreme Comfort Cream is THE facial product you need! With a base rich in macadamia oil, shea butter and selected seaweed extracts, this must-have intensely nourishes the epidermis and protects it from the harmful effects of the cold. The products rich in peptides, such as the Super Active Cream, also help replenish collagen reserves, essential for mature or very dry skin. Your skin will be revitalized and plumped to perfection!
3. Adapt your skincare routine to the season
If you don't yet combine a face serum with your day cream, now is the time: to try is to adopt! Why? Face serums are a combination of highly concentrated active ingredients, specially formulated to deeply penetrate the skin. Each serum has its own specific action: nourishing, soothing, anti-aging, moisturizing... As for the creams, in addition to their action, they form a physical barrier on the surface of the skin and prevent water from escaping and thus retaining hydration. By combining the two, you offer ultra-active and ultra-targeted care to your face, while protecting it from dehydration: the ultimate touch! In the Anne Semonin line, the Precious Serum is formulated with sesame seed, St. John's wort and wheat germ oils, renowned for their nourishing and softening properties. Slip it on morning and evening under the Extreme Comfort Cream or the Super Active Cream. Your skin will no longer pull, and it will regain all its suppleness and glow.
4. Take lukewarm showers
In the Winter, the body is not spared from dryness and redness. Want a warm shower? It's nice when it's cold, but be careful not to have the water too high in temperature, as this can alter your hydrolipidic barrier and make your skin even drier. Our advice? Do not exceed 38°C and after your shower, do not forget to apply the Extreme Body Comfort Cream all over the body. Its rich and creamy texture is ideal for soothing and nourishing it for a long time: it's a real restorative treatment!
5. Take care of your skin from the inside
The skin is also healed from the inside and to maintain balance, it is essential to provide the body with what it needs. It all starts with sufficient hydration, 1.5 liters of water a day, even when you are not thirsty. Even if you don't feel it, your cells need it all the time! Also stock up on good nutrients in your diet by consuming oily fish (mackerel, sardines, salmon, etc.) and oilseeds rich in omega-3 (rapeseed oil). It's good for your health and for your skin, whatever its nature!
