Autumn, winter, and early spring are times when your skin needs more of your attention. It is when the most exposed parts of your body – the face, hands, but also the scalp – are susceptible to dryness and damage caused by sub-zero temperatures.
Key cosmetics during this period are those with a rich composition and as low a water content as possible. Oil-based face cream that leaves a greasy film on the skin supports this natural protective layer and prevents problems. It is very important to take care of your hands, which, in contrast to the rest of your body, have very few sebaceous glands responsible for greasing and creating a protective barrier. They do however have sweat glands that contribute to faster drying. Here too, protective lotions and creams come to the rescue. In winter also the hair, or rather the scalp, needs care. It is important to choose the right shampoo and conditioner for your scalp type. The key here is to maintain the right balance in the amount of secreted sebum, which is a natural protection for your hair.
