What does the skin need in winter?

Different factors are particularly hard on the skin when the days get colder. These include:

  • Dry heating air

  • Cold, Wind

  • Temperature fluctuations

  • Wearing turtlenecks or scarves

They not only deprive the skin of the necessary moisture, but also leave lipid gaps (e.g. ceramides) in your skin barrier. This results in dry, dehydrated, sensitive, reddened, but perhaps also pale skin. Therefore, our skin needs a strong protection that strengthens the skin barrier and protects it from transepidermal water loss, i.e. moisture loss. To build this strong protection, the skin needs a balance of antioxidants in the skin and an extra portion of moisture. The amount of water in the epidermis, the top, visible layer of the skin, is crucial in determining whether the appearance is even, soft, elastic or dry, flaky and rough.

Lipids make your skin supple, strengthen your skin barrier and provide protection against moisture loss. Therefore, it is important to fill these moisture and lipid gaps with lipids and moisturizing factors that are as similar to the skin as possible and to support your skin in its own lipid formation.

What ingredients are important for winter skin care?

For the perfect winter glow, you can rely on the following four ingredients:

  1. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body and the main component of supporting and connective tissue. It intensively rehydrates the skin, stabilizes it and protects it from drying out. It is important to note that not all collagen is the same. The following applies: The more similar the collagen used is to human collagen, the more compatible and effective it is for the skin. All our collagen products are 97% similar to human collagen and therefore particularly effective.

  2. Vitamin C is another ideal active ingredient for the cold temperatures because it protects the skin from external environmental influences. It not only has a lightening effect against hyperpigmentation, but also helps the skin build collagen and acts as a free radical scavenger. It therefore has a strong antioxidant property. Here, too, the form of vitamin C used is crucial: the substance is very sensitive, so stabilization, packaging and the way the active ingredient is stored are particularly important to ensure that it does not lose its effect before use. Thanks to our unique technology our vitamin C is safely stored in its most active form until application and only develops its full effect with fresh activation before application.

  1. Resveratrol acts like a natural protective shield, protecting the build-up of collagen and reducing inflammatory redness.

  1. Oils and lipids contained in day and night creams, for example, help to build up the lipid barrier.

Product tips for successful skin care in winter

Especially suitable for optimal skin care in winter is the Collagen Serum Spray. It lays a moisture network of native (skin-like) collagen molecules over the skin, intensively moisturizes the skin and makes feelings of tension disappear. Simply spray onto the face, neck and décolleté in the morning, evening and as needed.

For even more moisture - especially for the sensitive eye area - you can use the Marine Eye Mask can be used. The calcium ions contained activate the aquaporins (water channels) of your skin, so that the moisture content of the skin is brought into balance and moisture retention is improved. Apply the mask as needed 1-2x per week for about 15 minutes.
