A Beautiful way to protect Your Skin
Low temperatures, sudden changes, wind, but also smog and pollution are factors that weaken and make the skin more vulnerable, favoring the onset of dry skin and redness. Furthermore, they contribute to accelerating conditions such as premature aging, loss of tone, elasticity and luminosity.
Here are the tips from ESTEREL experts for perfect skin even in winter.
Low temperatures cause a narrowing of blood vessels and consequently less oxygenation of the tissues.
The cold alters the surface hydrolipidic film, the natural skin barrier made up of sebum and water that protects the epidermis against external aggressions.
Cellular turnover slows down, the skin surface dehydrates and cracks easily, becoming fragile and thin, red and irritated, especially in the most delicate points such as the corners of the mouth, sides of the nose, cheeks, accentuating couperose and reactive skin conditions.
As for daily facial cleansing in winter, we recommend not using soap as it is too aggressive; it is better to choose delicate products, such as LAIT DE SOIN DOUX cleansing milk, rich in lipoamino acid salts derived from wheat germ, blueberry and red vine extract, to cleanse the skin without altering the hydrolipidic film, hydrating, protecting and reducing redness and irritations. It is then essential to hydrate the skin with specific creams, with a rich and consistent texture, such as the NUTRI-ACTION and HYDROACTIVE PLUS cream, formulated with shea butter, jojoba oil and UV filters, to control the aggression of free radicals and prevent wrinkles.
For body skin, ESTEREL recommends CRÈME BEURRE VITALITÉ, the extra-nourishing butter cream, rich in precious ingredients such as argan oil, olive oil, vitamin E, silk proteins, natural sugars, vegetable glycerin, shea butter and oil of jojoba, to regenerate, protect and nourish the skin. Also suitable for preventing chilblains and cold feet. For your hands, choose the fantastic PROTECTION MAINS cream, protective and nourishing to prevent chapping, the appearance of blemishes and the aging of the skin. Finally, let's not forget that even in winter it is essential to use sun protection creams, especially if you go to the mountains, where UV rays are four times more aggressive. For those with very pale, fragile and sensitive skin, we recommend SPF 50 PROTECTION, which acts against skin aging, counteracting the formation of free radicals and giving the skin rich hydration.
