How should we take care of our skin during the winter?
Cold, wind and heated (and dry!) places are very aggressive for the skin. To protect it properly, it must be pampered with appropriate care. At Académie Edith Serei, an aesthetics training centre (make-up, manicure, hair removal, etc.) in Montréal and Laval, we know the secrets of skin protection during the winter. To discover the right habits to develop in order to avoid redness, tightness, dryness and itching of the skin inseparable from the cold season, read this blog.
How does cold affect the skin?
Wondering why skin gets dry in winter? Here's the answer: when the outside temperature drops, your body devotes all its energy to preserving the heat of its vital organs. At the same time, your skin undergoes a major transformation as its sebum production – its natural protective shield – decreases... by half! More vulnerable, the skin struggles to fight irritating elements.
How can I remedy the lack of protection of my skin in winter?
In winter, use cleansers and moisturizing solutions with rich textures – avoid drying substances, such as alkaline soaps or purifying solutions. To prevent your skin from drying out, take showers or short baths (beware of hot water!). Finally, if you don't tend to drink a lot of water, make a little effort: your skin will thank you for it!
