Brace Your Skin For The Cold

Brace Your Skin For The Cold

Prepare your skin for the cold

At this time of year, we start to notice differences in our skin. This could be anything from oiliness, dryness, cracking to even pure dullness. This is because when it comes to a change of season, our skin is having to adapt with it. So, the main concern we have is trying to battle through the winter months whilst maintaining a beautiful and healthy skin. Any ideas? Luckily for you, we have you covered!

In this article I will be explaining not only how to get that fabulous holiday glow but to maintain it well into the new year 2020! (Even though we will all still be writing/typing 2019 for months to come until it actually hits home that, yet another year has passed!).

So, how do we get this ‘glow’? The one that just looks effortless and supermodel like, even with no makeup on whilst protecting your skin from the harsh weather?

Well, depending on your Skin Instant® this can be tailored to your skin needs to keep your skin protected whilst looking bright, fresh and revitalised with that added sprinkle of luminosity.

We can brace ourselves for the cold weather by wearing extra layers, gloves, a hat and scarf but how do we brace our skin? How do we prepare for those harsh elements with the cold wind slapping against our faces or the rain drops that feel like tiny ice droplets?

With Biologique Recherche, as you may well know, it all starts with a cleanse… The very first step to nourish, hydrate and protect your skin from the harsh elements, introducing our brightening cleanser:

"achieve glowing and clear skin!

Throughout this chill we face, we run towards hot baths, artificial heating and extra layers. But what does this do to our skin?

It strips the lipids (oils) from our skin. Therefore, we need to replace them.

But how?

With our range of products, we will be able to help you protect, nourish, hydrate and prevent the effects of the cold weather we will face.

One of the most important things we can do to enhance cell renewal and remove dead layers of skin is to exfoliate. Which leads us on to our next step of how to brace the cold:

Our hero product that is Lotion P50! Our whole range in fact! They are extremely important in combatting the extra layer of skin we produce when we face such cold and chilly weather!

Our hero product that is Lotion P50! Our whole range in fact! They are extremely important in combatting the extra layer of skin we produce when we face such cold and chilly weather!

When we are faced with such strong, ice cold winds, our skin starts to produce another layer which is properly known as keratinisation. This layer protects our skin but can make us look dull, grey and pretty tired. That is why it is so important to exfoliate.

Depending on your skin instant, the right Lotion P50 will remove the layer of dead skin cells, balance the PH of your skin and leave your skin brighter, energised and renewed. Exactly what we need at this time of year!

During the wintertime we want to stay inside, snuggle up in our dressing gowns and duvets and stay as warm as possible. We also may want to blow off going to the gym to avoid the cold. As a result, we are effectively moving less, and blood flow is decreased. Our skin can then look a bit dull, devitalised and not as bright. We then look for something energising (no, not the coffee) ...

We have just the product for you!

For time spent indoors, we would recommend:
