1. My skin is dehydrated: why?

Temperature changes, aggressive air-conditioning, over-heated rooms, air that is too dry or too humid... skin is ultra sensitive to external factors. The slightest change can be enough to dehydrate it. Whether dry, combination or oily, all skin types suffer from a lack of moisture.

2. Choose the right skin care products.

Tackle dehydrated skin by replenishing moisture levels and giving skin the ingredients it needs to stay protected. Firstly, choose the right moisturising cream for your skin type. If you have normal skin, apply the Hydra-essentiel Light Cream. Enriched with organic kalanchoe officinal extract, its formula stimulates the production of molecules that act like sponges within the skin, such as hyaluronic acid, which is essential to maintaining hydrated skin. Very dry skin types need the Hydra-essentiel Silky Cream for extra comfort and moisture. For perfectly hydrated skin, you can combine your cream with the Hydra Essentiel Bi-Phase Serum. Once or twice a week, pamper your skin with the fresh and intensely hydrating SOS Hydra Mask. In just 10 minutes, this mask quenches parched skin.

3. Drink up.

Moisturised skin starts from within. Remember to drink a litre and a half of water every day, even in winter. Cold weather is harsh on skin, and although you may not feel as thirsty as in summer, drinking lots of water is crucial to preventing dehydrated skin.

How should I care for dry skin?

1. Why is my skin dry?

If your skin feels tight or itchy at the slightest hint of some change in the air, then you have dry skin. Dry skin is lacking in moisture and lipids. This deficiency means the hydrolipidic film is unable to play its protective role on the surface of the skin. Skin becomes more sensitive to the world around it. Freezing cold weather, spikes in pollution levels and harsh winds can all easily cause damage. Skin then becomes less supple and tighter, the complexion is less smooth and redness appears on the surface.

2. Exfoliate your body

It's important to exfoliate your body once or twice a week to remove roughness caused by dry skin. Try the Tonic Body Polisher with its oily texture, which stimulates body and mind for a wonderful experience. Its formula uses salt and sugar crystals to eliminate dead skin cells without damaging the hydrolipidic film. In no time at all, skin is left soft, supple and revitalised.

3. Nourish!

You need to pamper dry skin by replenishing it with all the ingredients it needs and by helping to restore its hydrolipidic film. To this end, try the Moisture-Rich Body Lotion with its nourishing shea butter and orange blossom wax. Its ultra-rich texture softens roughness and improves skin tone for a softer feel, leaving skin smooth and supple.
