Kiss your dry skin good-bye

21. Februar 2019

Finally, we get the feeling that the colder days are vanishing. Personally, my skin is quite sensitive, so taking good care of it is a must for me. Besides that, every mother knows that kids skins are especially delicate and need all the best products to keep them protected all year long. The cold can be quite aggressive, the air is usually drier and the humidity is lower. Besides this, we have the temperature changes due to the high heating inside and colder temperatures outside. Therefore, rosé-toned cheeks and cracked skin can be quite common.

As you might already know, your skin should never lose the moisture, because it will then lose the ability to repair and protect itself. This is exactly why moisturizing plays such an important role. And always have in mind, that every product you choose should be tailored to your own skin type.

Heavy Cream: Look for creams, rather than lotions! Also, keep an eye on that the product comes with ingredients such as hyaluronic acid or ceramides and should always be fragrance-free. For those who have very dry skin on the face or body, I recommend this one which I also use to grease Emilian after showering.

Serum: First of all, if you were not using a serum, it is now time to do it. It is one of the most effective ways to plump your skin and exfoliate dead skin cells. Your skin will look like you spent a day at the spa – smooth, glowing and soft. In my case, I use the SOS Hydra Repair Serum. It balances dehydrated skin and increases dermal water reserve oils.

Oil: Use oils that moisturize the skin. By doing this you will avoid itchiness and irritation. Oil usually penetrates better into the skin and allows it to regenerate faster than other products. I go for the multipurpose organic Argan Oil (I have been using this for over 8 years – also for my hair and nails) which comes from the nut of the Argan tree and contains antioxidants and high concentrations of nutrients and Omega 6 and 9 fatty acids, essentials for building and maintaining healthy skin.

Spray mist: In my case, the Mineralizing Thermal Water is one of my go-to’s. This one doesn’t only smoothen the skin, it also strengthens it against external aggressors like the cold weather. Psssssst: Always take it to the plane when flying as your skin loses its moisture the most while on the plane.

Lips: Protecting your lips in the winter is basic. They are more prone to drying out than any other part of your body. The skin protecting our lips is much thinner than anywhere else and our lips have no pores, meaning no sweat or oil glands to keep them hydrated. The most common reason why our lips dry out is harsh weather and low temperatures. Reason enough why I always carry with me this repair balm.

Extra tip: If your skin is really, really dry, you might also want to give it a little push from the inside. Eat foods that contain amino acids, such as; broccoli, avocado, carrots or honey. These are all natural moisturizers!


Keine Frage: Die Haut will durchfeuchtet sein. Und das vor allem im Winter und bei Kälte, aber auch beim Übergangswetter. Gute Hautpflege ist wichtig damit die Haut nicht austrocknet. Für das richtige Vorgehen hier einige Tipps.

Ich bevorzuge Cremen, nehme also selten eine Lotion. Dabei achte ich darauf, dass die Creme kraftvolle Wirkstoffe wie Hyaluronsäure oder Ceramide enthält.

Ohne ein gutes Serum geht gar nichts. Ich verwende das SOS Hydra Repair Serum – nicht nur gut gegen trockene Haut, sondern auch ideal, um Wasserreserven in der Haut zu aktivieren. Bingo!

Hautfeuchtende Öle sind deshalb eine gute Hilfe, weil sie die Haut schneller durchdringen und damit schneller wirksam werden. Ich verwende bereits seit acht Jahren ein organisches Öl aus Marokko. Perfekt für die Haut, aber auch für Haare und Fingernägel.

Für mich unersetzbar: Das Mineralizing Thermal Water. Es glättet die Haut und hilft auch bei Kälte. Psssst: Bei Flugreisen auf keinen Fall vergessen – auch hier trocknet die Haut schnell aus.

Lippenschutz kann gar nicht groß genug geschrieben werden. Die Haut der Lippen ist viel dünner, und sie ist porenfrei, d.h.: Sie produziert weder schützenden Schweiss noch Talg. Wusstest du das?

Zum Schluss noch ein ganz besonderer Hinweis: Solltest du extrem trockene Haut haben, dann genügen die genannten Pflegemittel vielleicht nicht, und richtige Ernährung kann ganz toll helfen. Aminosäure-haltige Produkte wie Brokkoli, Avocados, Karotten oder Honig sind natürliche – und damit immer wirksame – Feuchtigkeitsspender!
