The skin of the hands and body requires no less careful care than the skin of the face. Especially in the off-season, when the body is still gaining strength after the winter, and we are already preparing to conquer the beaches.
We will tell you what you need to pay special attention to in the care of your hands and body in the spring.
The main procedures that the skin needs now and which can and should be carried out at home: cleansing, nutrition and hydration. The quality of inspection equipment is also important.
It is better to choose brands with strong laboratories, clinical research and a rich history — these companies know everything about skin care, not only from the aesthetic side, but also from the health side.
One of these brands is the French company Avene. The basis of all the brand’s products is thermal water from a spring in the Cévennes mountains. Water is endowed with mineral complexes, its pH level is neutral, and also contains a large amount of quartz, which has a calming effect on the skin.
How to prepare your skin for summer
Any care begins with cleansing. So the cells respond much better to the further influence of nutritional, moisturizing and protective components in cosmetics.
This can be as a daily cleansing-washing with gel or soap, and additional-cleaning the keratinized skin layer with a scrub or peeling. This procedure should be performed no more than once a week.
After winter, the weakened body is often subjected to spring beriberi, which leads to tired and dry skin, which requires increased nutrition. To do this, you can use creams, oils and masks.
And finally, hydration. Harsh tap water, polluted air and UV radiation negatively affect the skin condition. This stage is especially important now, when we wash our hands more often than usual for the virus.
To help the skin restore its hydrolipidic balance, apply a moisturizer or balm. For example, the universal face and body balm Trixera Nutrition Nutri-Fluid Balm is suitable for all skin types, even sensitive ones.
Plant lipids strengthen the cell walls, and the thermal water of the Avene spring, enriched with a variety of vitamins and minerals, saturates the skin with useful substances.
