When winter arrives the streets look like fashion week catwalks, everyone anxiously waits for the cold to come out of the closet and take care of their makeup. All very beautiful and glamorous yesmm, just the way we like it. ??
Unless your hair is not resistant to moisture and filling up with frizz, or your Sahara Desert face is crackling with dryness, while the skin on your body is losing all the hard-earned color and life over the course of a long summer. ? #fear #panic
But rest assured, my loves, this chaos is avoidable and reversible and you will only have to devote a few minutes of your day to get started in the ideal care. Thinking of that, we have separated some of our favorite products to take care of your hair, face and body during the most glamorous season of the year:
The number 1 enemy of our locks in winter is the very hot water, because she can remove excess natural oils produced in the scalp, do not let it run down the length and ends of the hair. This makes strands drier, brittle and frizzier than usual. Additionally, using hot water can open up the cuticles, making it easier to dry out, make it difficult to retain nutrients, and make it look extremely opaque. On the other hand, in some cases, this lack of oil makes the body realize that there is a decrease in production and intensifies the process, leaving the hair with excess oil. The result will be lifeless, still hair.
To avoid both scenarios, it is important to always use the hottest water possible and, if possible, finish with a final cold water rinse. Also, be careful with hydration and nutrition. Use oils and finish your hair with products that help control frizz.
? try to sleep with it coconut vegetable oil in the hair the day before cleaning. Humidification is about restoring the natural hydration of the hair, the oil compensates for the nutrients lost with dryness and will help to maintain the hydration provided by the treatments inside the fiber. For the same process, you can opt for the Moisture Oliva mask from Lola Cosmetics, which will also do the trick very well.
Another product that can be your ally in your quest for frizz control and hydration this winter is the Frizz Dismiss family from Redken. The formula has a technology patented by the L’Oréal Group, called Aquatoril. It works to promote water balance, blocking moisture inside the fiber and repelling moisture from the outside, keeping hair always hydrated and frizz-free. In addition, the products in the range are rich in Brazilian Pracaxi oil, to seal the fiber and block unwanted moisture once and for all. Only success! ✨
As the temperature drops, there is a real decrease in the production of sebum in the skin, making it more easily lose water and dry out. There is also the reduction of perspiration, a great ally in hydration. Other than that, the same hot water dilemma we talked about when it comes to hair happens with the skin of the face and body. On the face, the dryness is even stronger because it is the part of the body most exposed to wind and low temperatures.
Moisturizing facial treatment begins with cleansing, a stage in which we recommend the use of less abrasive products, such as micellar water and cleansing foams. Winter is a time of year when, if you wish, you can store your anti-grease scrubs and clays in the back of your drawer.
Thermal water is also an excellent ally to take care of your skin this winter, especially to soothe the surface affected by hot baths.
? For hydration, we have a thousand and one options for all skin types, including oily skin. We’ve just separated a few product suggestions we’ve tested here with the Epoca girls:
SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5: It is a serum with a very light texture, it feels like you are putting water on your skin and not a moisturizer. Yours the ingredients are SUPER concentrated, really restore hydration to the skin and the results are visible. It can be used on the most sensitive skin, even those recovering from a dermatological or aesthetic process such as peeling, etc.
Nuxe Paris Beauty Fresh Cream: With a fine, light, half-cream, half-emulsion texture that meets the needs of combination skin, this moisturizer is a real treat. “Milkshake” of eight essential vegetable oils for sensitized and dehydrated skin.
Remember to always end your skincare routine with a Solar cream at your convenience, even in winter. ?
The lips also suffer a lot from the cold and deserve special attention not to dry out and crack due to the low temperature. To avoid or treat already dry lips, we recommend our darling Cicaplast from La Roche Posay, which helps rebuild the skin barrier of the lips, relieves weakened lips and also contains 5% Panthenol, which guarantees a soothing and restorative action. Lip repair is also indicated for users of anti-acne drugs (Isotretinoin).
For body care, we have two very powerful choices to indicate: Vichy Ideal Body Lotion Serum, which helps fight the three signs of aging in the body’s skin: dryness, uneven skin tone and loss of elasticity. Second, and not least, the launch of La Roche Posay, Lipikar Aox, is a body antioxidant with SPF60, concentrated in Nicotinamide and Shea Butter to soothe dry and sensitive skin, restore the cutaneous barrier of the skin, protecting it from external aggressions for up to 24 hours.
