It happens to all of us: winter rolls around and by the time we remember to apply extra moisturizer it is already a little late. Let Biotherm Homme come to the rescue for dry winter skin.
It is common to develop dry skin over the winter months, when we come face to face with the harsh elements. As the temperatures drop and the air loses humidity, our skin suffers major water-loss and becomes dehydrated. Here, we explain how to tell if you have dry skin and what you can do to replenish hydration.
Is my skin dry?
If your skin looks dull, rough, and flaky, and feels tight after cleansing, then it is likely dry. If it is red, itchy, and burns when you wash it, then it is likely so dry it has developed sensitivity. While it is certainly not pleasant to have dry skin, the good news is that there are plenty of things you can do to restore moisture and balance!

Finish by gently patting your skin dry with a clean fluffy towel. Then apply the : Aquapower Dry Skin
