Winter skincare: special tips and good habits

Winter skincare: special tips and good habits

The functional intelligence of that magnificent organ that is our skin triggers specific physiological reactions in reply to external stimula to defend it from outer aggressions, especially at this time of the year when low temperatures become a daily challenge to the wellbeing of our skin. Our skin knows how to preserve itself, but it is essential to support its natural defense by helping it resist to the cold weather and stay in good condition not to miss its natural barrier function performance.

 

What happens to our skin in winter

When temperature becomes chilly, the thermal receptors in our skin defend it from the aggression of the cold weather by promoting a consistent vasoconstriction to reduce body heat dispersion.

Less supplied with blood, therefore less oxygenated and vital, the skin, especially that of the areas of the body exposed to the cold air, may risk to turn quickly dull, pale and asphyxiated. The sudden changes in temperature determined by getting in and out from heated places does also heavily compromise the integrity and functionality of the hydrolipidic layer that protects it from external aggressions, thus making the skin dry, fragile, dehydrated and, consequently, easily prone to irritations and crackings.

 

How to prevent flaky and irritated skin in winter

It is essential to support the skin’s natural defense with specific cosmetics that provide slow-release nourishment and hydration and at the same time exert a film-forming and protective action, so to limit the natural loss of water from its most superficial layers. When possible, these cosmetics should also contain calming and soothing active ingredients to help relieve the burning and itching sensation typical of dehydrated, irritated and thinned skin.

 

Which cosmetics to choose to protect our skin from the cold weather

Villa Paradiso Cosmetics suggests to start by applying on the cleansed skin of face and neck its Hyaluronic Acid: formulated with pure Hyaluronic Acid at medium, low and very low molecular weight, this iconic serum deeply moisturizes the skin, makes it elastic and resistant and creates a protective film on the horny layer to preserve the NMF, the skin’s natural moisturizing factor.

On top of the serum, two creams chosen according to the individual needs and choices can be applied to achieve an effective hydration and nourishment result and soothe irritated skin. Intensive Lumineux is an emulsion with a soft and rich texture, but quick to absorb, which gives brightness, hydration and nourishment to the skin of face and neck. Rich in vitamins and plant extracts exerting an emollient, antioxidant and restorative action, it nourishes the skin, limits the physiological loss of water, promotes the prevention of dyschromia and evens the complexion out.

Skins which are also in need for a soothing help may go for Evolution GT, a cream suitable for a prolonged, non-occlusive hydration in balance with the NMF. Formulated with Resveratrol and L-Ornithine, it helps limit the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, firm the face adipose tissue of face and counteract the inflammatory metabolites of arachidonic acid thus delivering a calming and soothing sensation.

Deeply hydrated and protected, the skin can thus keep its natural functionality and vitality to face winter season without discomfort and stay supple and well cared for the warm season to come.
