The cold can be a powerful ally for our body, it helps burn fat, tightens the skin, helps keep the mind clear and attentive, but it can also be an enemy, especially for the skin of our face; in fact, with the cold the capillaries shrink thus preventing the regular flow of blood to our tissues and this consequently leads to greater ease of dryness and dehydration.
What to do then to counteract these negative effects? Here are the suggestions of our Spa Therapist to help our face cope with the cold, and how to have beautiful facial skin even in winter in 3 easy steps.
"The secret is a correct beauty routine; it's crucial to maintain the skin in good condition in order to prevent the demage caused by the cold and the wind."
Our skin is subjected every day to irritating and stressful agents such as smog produced by means of transport and industries, but also the large amount of more or less fine dust present in the atmosphere. A first step in helping our face skin to fight the cold is to cleanse it properly. We have already talked about how to do it in the article "How to Remove Make-up Correctly"
Exfoliating is the key to giving the skin of our face brightness and freshness, it means removing the most superficial layer of our skin, which is mainly composed of residues of dust and dirt and dead cells. Going to exfoliate will leave room for new cells that will make the skin of our face more compact and permeable.
Choosing the right cosmetic to exfoliate is therefore essential; there are different types, depending on the type of skin, they can be scrubs, acid peelings or gommage. Having established the type that best suits our needs, it is advisable to carry out a deep cleaning once every 15 days. In our Spa, Borgo Scopeto Relax we use a grape seed-based exfoliating facial balm that is suitable for all skin types, except those with acne.
Moisturizing the skin of the face is very important for counteracting premature aging and always looking fresh and relaxed. Poorly hydrated skin causes the breakdown of collagen and elastic fibers in the skin, accelerating the appearance of wrinkles. To do this, apply a moisturizer suitable for your skin type in the morning and evening and apply a nourishing mask once every 15 days. We use one based on grape seeds and grape nectar which is suitable for all types of skin, even those with acne.
Having the skin of the face always beautiful and luminous is easy, just follow these small tricks and the result will be guaranteed in a short time.
