OUR 3- PART RITUAL TO NOURISH DRY SKIN

WINTER WEATHER WOES

The dry winter season can be a nightmare for those with already dry skin. To add to worries of dull or uncomfortable skin, the cold weather can bring roughness with it. However, a properly tailored skincare ritual with L’OCCITANE’s nourishing Shea products can help with seasonal dryness.

STEP 1 – CLEANSE YOUR SKIN

Without an effective cleanser, impurities may remain on the skin. Just as it is important to moisturise dry skin, cleansing is a crucial first step for fresh and radiant skin.

For your mornings, a gentle cleanse may be all your skin needs to freshen up and get going. Trade in a traditional cleanser for a cleansing water to quickly jumpstart your morning routine. You can avoid stripping skin of natural oils, meanwhile still cleansing it of dirt, oil and impurities from a night of slumber.

At the end of the day it's the time to cleanse skin of build up from the day. Worried a traditional cleanser may overdry already dry skin though? L’OCCITANE offers creamy textures formulated with nourishing Shea to keep dry winter skin happy.

STEP 2 - SOOTHE SKIN

Is your daily environment increasing your skin’s hydration demands? Face mists are more than just “water in a fancy bottle.” They are packed with hydrating ingredients to help moisturise and soothe the skin. During your skincare ritual, a quick spritz before applying moisturizer leaves skin feeling soft, supple and comfortable.

Face Mists also answer skincare demands throughout the day. They are easy to spray onto the face and neck and quickly absorb into the skin, providing refreshment and radiance.

STEP 3 - MOISTURISE AND NOURISH DRY SKIN

For dry skin, moisturising is crucial to help fight dryness or discomfort. However, your favourite moisturiser can do more than just hydrate uncomfortable skin. It can nourish and help protect the skin.

  • Provide nourishment and comfort by helping maintain skin’s hydrolipidic film, a light protective film made mostly of sweat, sebum and water that covers the entire surface of the skin.
  • It is ideal to switch between richer and lighter textures seasonally:
  • Richer textures in the dry winter
  • Lighter textures in the humid summer
