Winter Tips

 

 

 

Use a nutrient-based vitamin-based cream. Especially vitamin A (retinol) is important. Vitamin A is an antioxidant, an anti-radical that protects the skin. It makes it less sensitive and increases renewal. By aging, the process of renewal slows down. If the skin first took about 28 days to renew, it will put us in the 30’s or even more days. The skin starts to dehydrate and the first wrinkles are formed. Also collagen production, which gives the skin elasticity decreases and the skin loses tone. Vitamin A instead stimulates the process of renewal and collagen production. The result is a more elastic skin and more tonic forms.

Do not do the little hours! At night (in the dark) renewal of the skin is accelerated. In winter you need more sleep than in summer. Give your skin the time it takes to renew yourself.

If you want to treat yourself to a beauty center, it is recommended to start with an exfoliation of the skin. By sunbathing during the summer, the stratum corneum thickens by preventing active ingredients from penetrating the skin. An excellent exfoliation is achieved with glycolic acid that restores to the skin its lucidity, improves moisturisation and oxygenation and attenuates wrinkles. Then you go to the hydration, because because of the sun and the sea the skin is dehydrated. The various treatments improve and strengthen the skin, and when exposed to the sun the next summer will be more protected, the tanning will be more uniform and the skin will stain less.

Gymnastics for muscles (this advice is also valid for summer). With the years the facial muscles are shrinking and the traits become less decisive. To restore tone to the face there are specific treatments in beauty institutes (equipment stimulating muscle with alternating current). But you can also do gymnastics at home. Good exercise for the eyes (a weak point as well as the neck and hands) is as follows: bring the pupils without frowning upward for about 4 seconds and then down for about 4 seconds. Repeat the exercise about 3 or 4 times. Then move the pupils to the left, then to the center, then to the right side. Also repeat this exercise about 3 or 4 times. These exercises stimulate the eyelid (the orbicularis) and the muscle that shrinks and enlarges the eyes (procerus).

Eliminate – if possible – harmful factors such as smoke, lamps, sun, air conditioning (this advice is also valid for summer).

Cover the parts normally exposed as your face and hands. Protect these parts with gloves and scarves as exposure to cold and wind marks the skin.

Do not hesitate to use the foundation, just choose the one indicated for your skin. The foundation protects the skin against cold and wind. If your skin tends to be dry, choose a moisturizing foundation. If your skin is greasy, choose an oil-free foundation with a matte effect. To remove the gloss on the so-called t-zone (forehead, nose and chin) you can also apply the powder or one of those products that apply over the foundation or above the fard, such as the t-skin express t-mat express gel of germaine de cappuccini. The gel is invisible and can be applied several times a day without ever weighing up the trick.

Do not forget our hands! The hands tend to age and stain even faster on facial skin, because the skin is poor in lipids and the hands are often exposed to water (think for example of a hairdresser). So regularly apply nutritious creams. For those who want to undergo intensive treatment, there is now the hands-renewing treatment in the beauty centers that guarantees excellent results. The skin becomes brighter, more elastic and the lines greatly attenuate.
