Anti-cold beauty products to nourish and protect face and body

Anti-cold beauty products to nourish and protect face and body

If your face and body skin appears opaque and dry upon the arrival of bitter cold it is because low temperatures and atmospheric events like rain and wind have the negative effect of dehydrating the skin layer; they also cause a narrowing of the blood vessels and a loss of the first lipid layer, which normally protects it.

Hands, face and décolleté are some of the most exposed parts of the body and therefore among the first to suffer from the cold. Let’s discover how to effectively nourish and protect the skin to prepare it to fight the cold. 

NOURISH THE FACE DEEP DOWN

NOURISH THE FACE DEEP DOWN

Facial skin is undoubtedly among the most delicate and exposed to outside temperatures. Violent atmospheric agents - like wind - can make facial skin very dry and reddened and even cause more or less widespread blotches. 

This is why it is so very important to rehydrate and restore the hydro-lipid balance with a calming treatment that also acts as a powerful anti-oxidant.

Apply a rich smoothing cream like OW Radiance Face Balm morning and evening; it nourishes the face deep down and gives compactness to the skin barrier.

THE IMPORTANCE OF PROTECTING THE HANDS

THE IMPORTANCE OF PROTECTING THE HANDS

Quite often during the winter we find ourselves with dry, chapped, even cracked hands: the cold can be especially aggressive on the skin in such delicate areas, just like moisture can be a source of stress for this part of the body. Let’s not forget that the hands, along with the neck and face, are the first parts of the body to show the signs of ageing, especially if not taken care of properly. 

Pay attention to cleansing: the use of overly aggressive detergents or very hot water on the skin can also cause minor trauma on the skin layer. It is also important to dry them carefully with a gentle cotton cloth, blotting rather than rubbing the area. 

It is always better to choose warm water and frequently apply - massaging lightly - a specific nourishing, lipid-replenishing cream that can repair dry, chapped hands; Remedy Hand Balm, in the practical 50 ml format that fits easily in your bag so you can take it everywhere with you, fits the bill nicely.  

Remember to give your hands proper attention and to protect them with cotton gloves when the weather turns cold!

DON’T NEGLECT THE REST OF YOUR BODY

DON’T NEGLECT THE REST OF YOUR BODY

Even though it is covered by heavy clothes, it’s wrong to think that the rest of your body doesn’t suffer from the cold! Legs and arms, for example, may also appear especially dry and, as they are less visible than during the summer, even neglected. If we add to the cold the particularly dry air from indoor heating (in closed ambiences like at home, in the office or at the gym), it is very easy to have irritated, reddened skin. 

With OW Velvet Body Fluid, applied over your entire body with circular motions for better absorption, you can nourish your skin deep down, improving the integrity of the lipid barrier, giving compactness and elasticity and prolonging the youthfulness of the tissues.
