HYDRATION: HOW TO KEEP YOUR DRY SKIN IN CHECK THIS WINTER
Each and every winter there seem to be no end of articles dedicated to treating dry, flaky skin- but what if you could avoid it altogether? No, we’re not suggesting quitting your job and heading off to some far-flung tropical island! We’re talking about bypassing dull, dehydrated skin with the help of some simple #winterskinhacks and an intensely moisturizing face cream.
Turn down the heat
It might feel really good to wash your face with hot water after you’ve been out in the cold, but it can also strip your skin of it’s natural oils. To avoid the tight, raw feeling that often comes with dehydrated skin, turn down the dial on your tap and wash your face exclusively with lukewarm water: your skin will be just as clean and all the better for it!
Don’t wait until your face has completely dried before applying your moisturizer as skin is more permeable when it’s damp, so your hydration products will be the most effective at this crucial moment. Gently pat your face with a soft towel (reserved exclusively for your face) and then quickly move ahead with your skincare routine while the skin is still damp.
Pamper your skin
Of course, one of the best ways to replenish skin hydration levels is through applying a rich face moisturizer each and every day. Biotherm Aquasource Dry Skin delivers long-lasting hydration in the form of a luxuriously creamy gel formulated with regenerating and healing thermal Life Plankton™. Smooth a dose onto freshly cleansed and toned skin before using both hands to massage it into your dehydrated skin. Use sweeping motions from the center of the face outward and then finish with your neck. Enjoy the feeling of comforted, nourished skin and admire the bright natural radiance.
