Season change - what happens to my skin?

But why is that?
How can we support our skin to find its natural balance again?
Our skin constantly releases moisture into the environment. This natural process is called transepidermal water loss. In a very dry climate, our skin loses more moisture or releases it into the environment. Summer and winter in particular are a challenge for our skin. In the transition from summer to autumn, for example, the air is particularly dry. Heated rooms are additional stress for our skin barrier. Extreme cold also causes problems for our skin. When temperatures drop, our glands produce less skin fat. Since the skin lacks this, moisture evaporates even faster from our skin's surface. The skin itches, tightens and even small cracks can develop.
How can we best support our skin? We have put together a few tips for each season:
Less is more. Spring is the time for detoxification. That's why we recommend natural care products, for example without fragrances, without parabens and without alcohol. Cold-pressed organic oils are wonderful for caring for sensitive skin. For cleaning we recommend our Cleansing Oil . Our Intensive Serum Age Protect is suitable for building up the skin barrier. The serum moisturizes, builds up the natural skin barrier and supports with the natural amino acid ectoine. Our facial care with hyaluronic acid and aloe vera and eye care with evening primrose oil and wild rose oil are ideal moisturizers. The light facial fluid with pomegranate extract supports the skin in regenerating. Especially in spring, the light cucumber seed oil is a good addition to the care routine before applying the cream.
In summer, the skin is particularly affected by the sun and dryness. We recommend the refreshing Body Lotion Citrus Thyme - thyme also has a disinfecting effect. The probiotic body lotion with marula oil is particularly suitable for sensitive skin. Moisturizers are, for example, our facial care with Hyualuron and the Intensive Serum Age Protect . Additional moisture can be supplied with the facial tonic rose . The facial tonic in particular is refreshing in hot temperatures and is an additional moisture booster under the cream. Our facial fluid with pomegranate extract and Sepilift is also well suited as an additional moisturizer. Sepilift is a herbal, clinically proven active ingredient (lipoamino acid) that moisturizes the skin, activates cell regeneration and plumps up the skin.
When temperatures drop, the skin's production of sebum decreases. We now recommend our face care oils depending on the skin type ( Age Protect - dry skin, Avellana oil - as natural light protection and cucumber seed oil for combination skin and normal skin. In addition, the Intensive Serum Age Protect helps to regenerate the skin. Our face care cream and eye care with hyaluronic acid are natural moisturizers The cream serum with hemp oil and mat bean extract (Vigna Aconitifolia seed extract), the herbal alternative to retinol, protects against the increasingly cold days.This active ingredient helps to stimulate skin renewal and smoothes wrinkles, it also stimulates collagen synthesis.DNA damage of the skin cells is prevented.
