5 tips for glowing and healthy skin this winter!

It is known that with the change of weather and the drop in temperature comes an immediate change of your wardrobe. But did you know that your skin also needs such a change?

To put it simply: skin loves stability. When factors such as temperature and sunshine change, the skin undergoes a shock. Let's take for example the change from summer to autumn - a topical issue due to the season - where humidity and temperature are in free fall. The skin then makes a greater effort to maintain its moisture levels and very often becomes dry, brittle and thin.

A proper change in your care routine, however, and you have nothing to fear! All you have to do is choose the right products for you and your skin's needs. Follow the tips below and give it the care it deserves this winter.

Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate :

No matter how consistent you managed to show in the summer with your sunscreen, the hottest season of the year has left its marks on you. However, it is not only the season that is responsible. The skin may never stop renewing itself, but over time this process slows down, resulting in a dull and tired appearance.
But the solution is simple: exfoliation ! Proper exfoliation will increase cell regeneration, deep clean and remove dead cells from your skin, giving it the glow and renewal it needs! Plus: Much better absorption of the active ingredients from your care products!
But try not to overdo it! 1-2 times a week is enough, as your skin is much more sensitive in the winter months!

Proper hydration :

Choosing the right moisturizer for your skin is key to surviving the winter months. A troubled and dehydrated skin needs creams with a rich texture and enhanced composition, able to offer the intense hydration and protection it needs so much during these months.

Facial oils :

For those of you who have dry or sensitive skin and want that something extra for the cold months of the year, look no further! Facial oils are exactly what they will complement perfect the action of your moisturizer and they will give you that extra protection and hydration you're looking for. Dry oils in particular have the ability to penetrate deeply, penetrating the outer layers of the skin resulting in they hydrate and nourish it even more effectively , without leaving a trace of greasiness . In parallel they create a protective "film" on the surface of the skin offering real protection against dehydration.

Sunscreen for all seasons :

The days may be getting shorter and the clouds have now made their presence felt, but listen to this: 80% of UVA radiation reaches your skin even then! So you understand the importance of a good sunscreen even in the winter months, both to prevent premature aging and to reduce the risk of skin diseases.
And if you want something more than a simple sunscreen, try the new Apicell face sunscreen -spf30- with Hyaluronic acid, Aloe, Panthenol and Niacinamide, for oil regulation, intensive hydration and regeneration. High broad-spectrum sun protection, with natural and safe organic filters, in a really thin, fast-absorbing composition for a light and natural effect.

Don't forget the lips !

One of the most sensitive parts in winter, which needs special attention and is very often neglected, are your lips! It is the period when they burst and peel the most! Make sure you always have a moisturizing lip balm in your bag and remember to apply it often to keep them soft and hydrated.

Whatever your skin type is, the foundation of its care should be good hydration and effective protection. So regardless of the circumstances or seasons, the goal is to learn to listen to your skin and its needs. This way you will always have a healthy and beautiful skin that will shine as it really deserves!
