January is par excellence the heart of winter , the moment when the most bitter cold puts the skin to the test. How to take care of it correctly?
With the first days of intense cold, the skin often goes into crisis due to wind, humidity and above all thermal changes in terms between the external and internal environment. All this because the skin constitutes a sort of interface between the body and the surrounding environment, contributing to the active control of various functions including thermoregulation, aimed at maintaining a stable internal body temperature.

Cleansing and Cleaning
Skin cleansing must be carried out on the whole body, bath or shower, at least 2-3 times a week especially for the most exposed parts (hands,face,neck) or those on which sweat and other secretions accumulate.
The skin must therefore be washed often, but it must not be excessively degreased so as not to remove the lipid film.
By virtue of this I have chosen the liquid soap for the hands of Farmona , the “Tutti Frutti – Banana and Gooseberry”, which washes hands effectively removing impurities and bacteria, but on the other hand it nourishes the skin leaving it hydrated.
In addition, I would also recommend the natural sea sponge for cleansing the face of Magnum which guarantees a deep cleansing, but in a gentle way so as not to irritate the skin.
The Hydration Manual
The atmospheric agents of this season attack the hydrolipidic film which acts as a protective barrier for the skin. This layer, disappearing due to the cold, risks causing dehydration, imperfections and irritation.
To maintain hydration, starting with nutrition, it’s important to remember to drink at least 1 liter of water per day. Then a correct intake of fruit and vegetables is important, preferring foods that contain Vitamin A such as carrots, pumpkins, rocket, tomatoes, spinach and apricots.
For the outdoors, here are some practical tips:
It’s advisable to apply a greasy cream during the day and a thin one at night , as well as at least once a month a mask that is chosen from: nourishing, purifying , relaxing and anti-aging.
Excellent the one in 3 phases of the Missha for a deep cleansing of the face, without sacrificing hydration and radiance.
Burt’s Bee instead the treatment for skin imperfections, the order of the day when it comes to acne.
For the lips choose products with natural emollient extracts , such as lip balm with Madagascar vanilla from Bagder. Always in the mouth area, pay particular attention to the sides of the mouth where dryness could be symptoms of atopic dermatitis or due to the use of some cosmetics that may contain allergenic substances.
Although they are considered “safe” closed in shoes, in reality for this very reason they suffer a lot. The lower extremities, after a particularly cold day, can be pampered with a thyme foot bath, green tea or aloe vera, from relaxing, antiseptic and moisturizing properties.
It’s also important to do a scrub once and finish the treatment with a moisturizing balm , such as that of Badger which deeply hydrates, regenerating the skin and healing cracked skin.
