Did you know that the average human loses around 25% of its ability to hold moisture during the winter season? I don’t know about you guys, but I always make sure my face is moisturized, but when it comes to my body, it slips my brain. Once winter finally hits, it’s almost like a bomb of flakiness appears on my arms, legs, hands, and even my stomach. I never realized how important it is to keep up with our moisture barrier on the rest of our body, not just our face. The best way to fix cracked, flakey skin is by using medical-grade body emollients. Don’t worry; this is where Amélie comes in to help you. We carry so many excellent moisturizers for the face but also for the body. Let me tell you a few of my favorite products.
Epionce is one of my favorite medical-grade skincare lines on the market. Not only do they have things to treat all sorts of different skin conditions, but they also have nourishing body treatments to treat anything from eczema to dry, flaky skin. The first product I am going to highlight is the Renewal Body Lotion. This product contains key ingredients of rich shea butter, orange fruit extract, and many more. These key ingredients help not only calm irritated and red skin but also help with dry, flaky skin. It improves the visible appearance of skin aging while also helping to firm and tone the skin on your body. This product also contains rosa Canina fruit oil which gives you the active ingredient of Vitamin C to help protect your skin from free radical damage.
My following favorite product is the Epionce Enriched Body Cream; this product is different from the Renewal Body Lotion by how thick the consistency of the product is. This lush rich all-over body cream provides instant, long-lasting hydration to soften and smooth the skin. Provides maximum hydration for dry skin on the hands, feet, and elbows; body butter consistency ideal for daily use. It contains Meadowfoam Extract; this ingredient is high in fatty acids and is a natural component in the skin structure while adding in hydration.
Last but not least is going to be the Epionce Renewal Calming Cream, this can be used for skin conditions on the face and the body. This product contains healing properties to calm eczema, Keratosis Pilaris, etc. Renewal Calming Cream is formulated with cholesterol and ceramides to help maintain the function of the skin barrier. With one of the main ingredients being colloidal oatmeal you will notice redness and irritation dissipate within days of use. One of the biggest concerns when it comes to cold weather is how much it drys out our skin. This product is clinically proven to help textured skin and scaly dry patches. I like to use this product post treatment, especially Microneedling as it will help soothe the sunburn type sensation you can gain in post treatment.
As you set your heater on high, remember to have a moisturizer laying nearby. Without the help of ceramides and luscious body products, our skin would feel raw and irritated. Amélie is your one-stop shop when it comes to all skin (even body) concerns.
