3 steps to pamper your skin this winter

Did you know your skin’s needs change from one season to the next? Adapt your routine to the cold weather with the right techniques for a cozy and comfortable winter!

There’s nothing easier! Keywords are: nutrition, hydration and exfoliation
But wait... Why does skin need special winter treatment? Because winter is not the same as summer! During the summer, we recommend applying a moisturizer and a sun protection to protect your skin from UV rays during the day, and a classic moisturizer at night.
In winter, skin needs change based on external factors such as wind and cold, which weaken it.
Without the help of adapted skin care, your skin is likely to become dry and feel tight. So, it's important to moisturize your skin with suitable products and decrease the number of times you exfoliate.
Here are 3 steps to protect your skin and make it radiant this winter!
1/ Delicate and less frequent exfoliation
Since skin is already under attack by the harsh weather conditions of winter, exfoliating must be done gently, with a lightly abrasive scrub.
Our Pure Algue Ultra-fresh Radiance Scrub gently exfoliates and refreshes skin perfectly. The frequency of the scrub should also decrease: if you can exfoliate up to twice a week during the summer, during the winter once every 2 weeks should be enough.
This gives you more time to watch your favorite TV shows!
2/ Moisturize: OK, but how?
During the winter it’s important to take a close look at the formula of your moisturizer. Here's why you should choose nutritious formulas, enriched with plant oils:
- These formulas act as a barrier against the environmental aggressions, such as cold and dry air;
- They help retain moisture in your skin. For example, if you use a Gel cream formula to moisturize your skin in the summer, the Riche Crème line formula would be better suited during winter.
Here's another tip! Deeply nourish and moisturize your skin with masks! Essential to instantly restore radiance to your complexion, they will pamper your skin all winter long like the The Oxygenating Hydrating Mask - Pure Algue.
For your body, we recommend the Bain de Nature range of body milks and shower gels in a variety of scents.
3/ Opt for lukewarm water
During the winter, all we really want when we get home is to make ourselves a hot cup of tea and hop into a steamy hot shower or bath to warm up! While you might find it relaxing, your skin will make sure to let you know that it doesn't appreciate it.
The truth is, very hot water dries out skin and removes sebum, leading to irritation and even wrinkles. As a precaution, take lukewarm showers and don't rub your skin excessively with your towel.
In other words: be gentle with yourself!
