Caring for your skin
Keeping your skin soft and well nourished
Getting in to a few good habits can help keep your skin healthy and hydrated:
- Avoid very hot baths and showers. Instead, use lukewarm or even cool water (if the weather’s not too cold) and do not stay in the bath or shower for too long.
- Add a capful of nourishing oil to your bathwater or cleanser.
- Wash with a dermatological bar or a soap-free mild cleansing gel, specifically formulated for dry skin.
- Avoid exfoliation treatments that can weaken your skin.
- After you’ve washed, pat your body dry with your towel instead of using a wiping motion.
- Apply a moisturizing and nourishing product once or twice a day to your face and body.
- For makeup removal, opt for nourishing formulas such as oils and cleansing milks.
- Avoid sun exposure, or use high SPF protection (minimum SPF 30).
- Maintain an appropriate level of humidity in your home, particularly during winter months when radiators are running. You can achieve this by placing bowls of water on your radiators, or by using a humidifier.
- If your skin continues to cause you discomfort, do not hesitate to see a dermatologist.
