The beauty tip

from Thalac

Wind, rain, snow, frost... winter can be hard on your skin causing irritation, tightness, redness and dryness.

Very low outside temperatures can also cause a phenomenon known as vasoconstriction. When you are cold your body tries to warm itself up, to maintain a constant temperature. This has an adverse effect on your skin.

So, here are 3 steps to protect your skin and stay beautiful this winter.

Step 1: soothe your skin

Apply a soothing serum morning and evening to reduce redness and soothe the skin.

Step 2: moisturise and replenish the skin’s lipids 

Moisturisers and lipid-replenishing products are essential to effectively combat external aggressors. Apply morning and evening to the face, body and hands.

On days when the temperature drops below zero, apply a non-water-based product (e.g. oil-based), as water molecules freeze and cause the skin to tighten.

Contrary to popular belief, oily skin needs to be moisturised. It is fragile and should be protected, especially in winter.

Step 3: protect your lips

Sensitive to any change in temperature, your lips are the first to suffer in cold weather. To take care of your lips, use a protective chapstick or lip balm.
