Winter protection for your skin

Dry and very dry skin can feel uncomfortable during winter. The cold weather can weaken the skin, leaving it dry and feeling tight. We developed a quick survival guide to help your skin.

If your skin is feeling sensitive and tight, it’s probably dry. And if it feels rough to the touch, that’s also another sign of dryness. This means that the skin lacks lipids and water and has become dry.

What should you focus on if you want to soothe dry skin? Nutrition and hydration, by providing the skin with lipids and water.

Soothe your skin with Sisley essentials.

Dry skin:
the right product

You’ll need specific products to transform dry skin into soft, supple and soothed skin. Sisley Research has developed a specific product: Velvet Nourishing Cream with Saffron Flowers. Its unique formula contains buckwheat seed extract to protect your skin during the day and shea butter to repair it overnight, while tackling all the causes of dry skin. Day after day, night after night, your skin looks fresh and radiant. Your skin’s defensive barrier is boosted, leaving skin feeling soft and soothed.

If the winter weather has had an effect on your skin, choose some SOS skincare. The Restorative Facial Cream, with soothing, nourishing Shea Butter, instantly soothes the skin. Slip it into your suitcase, whether you’re going skiing or to the beach: it’s ideal for soothing and repairing your skin. Keep the delicate skin of your lips looking beautiful with Nutritive Lip Balm, a powerfully replenishing product.

The right daily routine

There are a few rules to follow if you’ve got dry and/or sensitive skin. You need to protect your skin as much as possible, whilst being gentle. Don’t even think about using astringent treatments which contain alcohol or cleansing gels which can dry out delicate skin. Choose gentle formulas, like Lyslait, to remove make-up and impurities, and lotions designed for dry skin to leave your skin perfectly cleansed. Don’t skip this step which provides your skin with nutrition and hydration: otherwise, your face will start feeling tight before you’ve had time to put your make-up on.

If you live in an area with hard water, finish by using a spray of Floral Spray Mist. Remember that sunshine can cause damage, no matter what your skin type: try to apply sun protection every day and limit your exposure, even in winter!

Say hello to soft, soothed skin!
