It all depends on your skin type. However, in general, the skin is more oily in the summer, the heat opens the skin pores and generating a higher sebum production. Conversely, the skin is drier in winter because the cold, wind and indoor temperature changes / outside the attack much more. Although it is very important to adapt the care of the skin to the current season, it may also be wise to start cleaning. Thus, in the winter, "cocooning"the body with cleaning will provide a sharper and less dry skin for subsequent care. In summer, remove the sensation of "wetness" and refresh with shower gels that will feel better in body and in his head.

The skin, especially the face, can be very sensitive in winter. The skin care should then already begin cleaning. Thus, in winter, slightly liporestituants cleansing milks are particularly suitable. In winter, the skin must be very powerful. It's cold outside, inside air is dry due to heating. 30 degrees of temperature variations are not uncommon - and they even befall several times a day. The skin has sweat glands and fat cells through which the largest organ of the human body maintains its balance. The skin lipids enhance the protective film on the skin and, if it is intact, the skin becomes dehydrated less. But in the presence of cold temperatures, the skin is not able to distribute fairly the skin lipids. The heated rooms are comparable to a desert climate. The skin needs more hydration, more importantly, it dries out much more easily. That is why it requires rich creams that lend it a light protective film. Dry skin, which produces anyway too little fat, become more demanding during the cold season. It is recommended in winter to begin treatment program already during the cleaning phase and to use slightly liporestituants cleansing milks. The cleansing milks are surfactant-free and contain among other shea butter, fatty alcohols, soybean oil and triglycerides (mixture of vegetable oils). Because of their consistency, these lipids may be particularly well absorbed by the skin and they provide care and comfort from her cleaning. And why cleansing milk wash not they contain surfactants? The surfactants not only remove makeup and impurities, they also tired the protective film on the skin. The cleansing milks without surfactants are the right choice for dry or mature skin and this whatever the season.

It depends on the skin type, but generally the skin is drier and torn in winter and in summer oily and dilated. Cleaning comfort with less délipidants products is desirable in winter.

For example:

For dry skin: cleanse your skin with water or micellar cleansing oil and apply a cream mask and scrub less frequently in summer

For oily skin: Clean your skin with a micellar water and apply a gentle scrub alternating with cream mask
