How to moisturize the skin in winter
However strange it may sound, in winter, any type of face skin needs more moisture than in summer. But not everyone knows how and how to properly moisturize it.

In vain, some ladies believe that there is no difference between day and night, summer and winter cosmetics for skin care. It's not for nothing that scientists, men, entire laboratories and institutes are working to create formulas for effective creams, serums and oils. Take at least winter care – the cream should be able to protect the skin from cold and fill it with life-giving moisture, the oils should be as nutritious as possible, but not greasy.

In winter, many women are horrified to notice that their skin is awfully dry, and begin to moisten it with what is at hand. And, unfortunately, not always correctly choose means.


The most popular means for saturation of a skin with a moisture is a cream. It instantly removes traces of dryness and tightness, gives a sense of comfort. But not all creams have sufficient moisturizing properties. When choosing a cream for the winter period, you need to pay attention to how much hyaluronic acid it contains, because it is responsible for the preservation of the epidermis of life-giving moisture. If there are no numbers, then you can define in another way. In the description of the composition of a cosmetic product, the ingredients are indicated in decreasing order, that is, there are more of those substances that are indicated by one of the first.

The second rule of winter hydration is the regularity of the procedures. Use the cream twice, or even three times a day, and not when there is a pronounced discomfort.

Salon procedures

Humidification of deeper layers of the skin can provide salon procedures, for example, collagen masks, hyaluronic or peptide injections. After carrying out the procedures, the deep layers of the skin are renewed, filled with life-giving moisture, they include their natural protective mechanisms, which the moisture obtained from outside is retained.

Not so long ago, LED-therapy appeared. During this procedure, the person is covered with a gel mask and placed the patient under special lamps. Under the influence of rays of different length and color, the skin is awakened, metabolic processes are activated, and its immune system is restored. For the hydration of the skin red rays meet, during the action of which the collagen synthesis is accelerated, microcirculation of lymph and the production of hyaluronic acid are accelerated.

Moisturizing Spray

The main source of moisture for the skin in winter spray can not be! It is only able to refresh, replenish the supply of salts and minerals, but for a short period of time. Apply thermal water and cream on the skin need long before the release to frost. If the water and the caregiver are not absorbed, they will simply freeze and "burn" the surface of the epidermis, harm it and will not do any good.

BAD and drinking water

Believe blindly promises BAD can not. Not all biological supplements can contribute to the preservation of moisture in the epidermis. Dermatologists believe that even hyaluronic acid in tablets is not capable of delivering water to skin cells! But, they can help to keep the balance of those substances in the body that are responsible for skin health. When choosing, give preference to those dietary supplements whose action is directed to specific problems of your body. Follow the rule – I'm healthy, my skin is healthy.

Absorption of a huge amount of drinking water in the winter time also does not save your skin from dryness. The consumption of water must meet the generally accepted norms and needs of your body.


In winter, humidifiers should be installed in any room. Heating dehumidifies the air, draws moisture from the skin, and these miracle devices help to maintain a sufficient level of humidity in the room. But its installation should not serve as an excuse for canceling other procedures and refusing cosmetics. Skin requires complex care, especially in winter!
