Winter is a slow pace in things, a time of patient wait, a natural rest before the cycle of nature starts its course anew.
When referred to skin, nevertheless, this slower and more relaxed attitude should not mean dismissing healthy cosmetic habits which are actually to be enhanced at this time of the year, when the skin is less stimulated by the exposure to the sun and fresh air. It is rights now that intensive treatments should be gone for to help the skin resist to adverse climatic conditions and events.
The thermal shock, first of all, suffered from getting in and out of heated rooms, the use of heavy clothing often made of synthetic fibers that limit the skin’s natural transpiration and regeneration, the increased humidity are all factors that weaken the skin and compromise its precious barrier function thus making it flat and dull.
When winter comes, it is therefore strategic to implement in a regular way specific treatments exerting a double and complementary action of exfoliation and hydration: supporting the skin’s renewal is the first step to keep it healthy, resistant and able to maximize the supply of hydration and nourishment given by suitable products.
Villa Paradiso Cosmetics recommends starting the application of its Salicylic Acid right at Fall: the formula of this best-seller of the face range combines the exfoliating, antibacterial and smoothing properties of Salicylic Acid with precious functional ingredients exerting a nourishing, skin-repairing and antioxidant action. The 2% Salicylic Acid content in the emulsion helps the natural skin renewal by removing dead cells from its outer layer and promotes the reduction of superficial imperfections of seborrheic or inflammatory origin. Selected Polysaccharides from biotechnologies, Allantoin, Panthenol and precious oils and butters vegetables help restore, at the same time, elasticity, suppleness and deep hydration for a smooth, compact, radiant look. The cream has to be applied in the evening, before going to bed, on the clean and dry skin of face and neck.
The skin of the body needs some help in its natural regeneration, too: healthy and vital cells are the starting point to keep it supple, fresh and able to fully enjoy the benefits of the body moisturizer, to be applied every day. A scrub becomes therefore a precious habit, to be regularly done at least once a week: Exfoliating Body Scrub exploits the delicate action of pure rock salt crystals to exfoliate and smooth the skin and refine its texture. Olive oil and essential oils of Lime, Grapefruit and Petit Grain complete the formula with their emollient, antioxidant and purifying action, while the gentle massage allowed by the anhydrous texture of the product which blends pleasantly with the skin favors the reactivation of the subcutaneous microcirculation, the stimulation of the intercellular exchanges and an increase in the absorption and effectiveness of the cosmetic treatments to follow.
Regenerated, deeply moisturized and well cared, the skin recovers and maintains its elasticity, firmness and natural brightness and will be ready for the arrival of the spring season.
