Surely, like the rest of the world, you flew through the year 2020 and suddenly found yourself in the winter period. The winter season, although it has its own special charms, also brings many troubles for our skin. During the winter, many factors "work against you" without you even realizing it. Cold air and strong winds cause moisture loss from your skin, and on the other hand, hot showers and home heating encourage faster water evaporation, which overall contributes to dry, cracked skin. and irritated skin.
HOW TO END THIS?
With a slight lifestyle adjustment and quality cosmetic products.
AVOID LONG AND HOT SHOWERS/BATHS
While a warm bath sounds perfect on cold winter days, in reality it breaks down the skin barrier. Hot water dries out and additionally irritates the skin because it extracts natural moisturizing factors from it. To avoid this, take a quick shower with lukewarm water, and then feed your skin generously with body lotion!
LAYER UPON LAYER AND A FEW MORE LAYERS OF CREAM
Your skin is looking for more hydration than usual right now, so help it out by using richer moisturizing creams, serums and oils. Layered application creates a protective layer on the skin, which locks in moisture and makes it difficult for the skin to dry out. If your routine consists only of face cream, now is the ideal time to complement it with a moisturizing serum or nourishing oil. If you are one of those who still enjoy light gel textures, and you are already armed with excellent serums, for the winter choose a cream with more nutritious ingredients such as shea butter, jojoba or avocado oil and the like. Regardless of preference, it is definitely a fantastic choice for any winter care routine L'ADRIA Regenerative cream !
COMMIT TO HYDRATION
Retaining moisture in the skin should be the main motto of your winter care routine! Invest in a quality serum with hyaluronic acid such as L'ADRIA Instant revitalizing serum , and don't forget to drink enough water daily. It is also recommended to use a humidifier in the rooms you stay in to reduce the drying effect of heating and closed spaces in winter.
PAY ATTENTION TO THE SKIN OF THE LIPS
Lips are often not at the top of the list of care priorities, but in winter they really should be, because they are on the front line of all the wonders, but also the adversities of winter weather. Along with lip balm, use a gentle exfoliator at least once a week to keep your lips nourished and protected and to complement well-groomed facial skin.
SPF? IN WINTER?? VERY MUCH!
Protection from the sun is certainly not one of your associations with winter, but even though we don't really see the sun or feel its pleasant warmth, we are by no means protected from its influence. Summer and the sea may be months away, but the sun's rays do not take a vacation and represent a constant risk for your skin. Believe it or not, UV rays are actually the most dangerous in winter, when our vigilance is at its lowest, and the beautiful white snow, which gives us many winter joys, also reflects the sun's rays, which increases their harmful effect on our skin. , if you have problems with acne and hyperpigmentation, you should not skip the protective factor at any time of the year because it can help keep your complexion even.
STAY HYDRATED AND ACTIVE
In a year full of self-isolation and quarantine, as well as other unexpected events, motivation for anything, especially for exercise and a healthy life, is surely hiding somewhere at the bottom of the pile of all the outfits we didn't have the chance to walk through. Add in low temperatures and gloomy winter weather - a blanket and cocoa in front of the TV simply seem the most logical choice. But precisely in those moments, no matter how unattractive it may seem, regular exercise, even in the "do it yourself gym" version, and sufficient intake of water and nutrients can greatly ease the long winter days. Exercise stimulates circulation and increases the secretion of endorphins, which positively affects the general state of the body and your energy level. Since they say that the eyes are the mirror of the soul, the skin can be considered a mirror of our physical condition and lifestyle... invest a little effort and will into good habits, and your skin will surely reward you for it and shine in its most beautiful form!
