Expert advices to enjoy radiant skin during festive season
The skin is an incredibly adaptable organ, but it can be put to the test by external factors such as the vagaries of the weather. Indeed, variations in temperature, dry, wet or cold spells have consequences for our skin's hydration.
As the festive season approaches, it's all the more important to have radiant, beautiful skin.
Besides having healthy habits, by following these steps, you can keep your skin hydrated and glowing at every seasonal event, whatever the season!
Remember that each season requires a personalized approach, so adapt your skincare routine accordingly to ensure your radiance lasts all year round.
STEP 1: UNDERSTANDING SKIN NEEDS
What is your skin telling you?
Knowing your skin is essential to offering the most appropriate dermatological solution all year round. The first step is to determine whether your skin is oily, dry, combination, sensitive or normal.
Skin types can change over time, so it's essential to reassess them periodically, and also to determine specific skin indications (acne, fine lines, dark spots or redness...).
Indeed, understanding your issues will help you choose the right professional products and treatments, which is particularly important when you're preparing to dazzle at special occasions and gatherings.
STEP 2: hydrate from within
"Excuse me ma'am : water, please!"
Make a conscious effort to drink enough water throughout the day.
It is recommended to drink 1.3 to 2 liters of water per day, depending on bodies and activities practiced throughout the day. Adequate internal hydration plays a significant role in preserving your skin's suppleness and combating dryness
Despite the temptation to reduce water intake when it is cold outside, this is precisely when your skin needs extra hydration to shine during the festive season.
Although food and drinks may provide some hydration, water circulating in your body must reach the dermis. The dermis acts as a reservoir and supplies the epidermis with all the necessary nutrients while protecting against mechanical injury
These nutrients are transferred to the outermost layers of the epidermis to provide hydration to each cell. Water is a vital molecule for enabling the skin to ensure its own defense, immunity and the appropriate and coordinated function of its whole cellular structure.
Dehydrated skin can be characterized by irritations and an uncomfortable sensation. Lipids are also essential in helping to treat dehydrated skin. Scientific evidence has shown the correlation between moisturization and dry skin.
STEP 3: GENTLE AND REGULAR EXFOLIATION
THE BENEFITS OF A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE AND A SPECIALIZED BEAUTY ROUTINE
Exfoliation is a crucial step in the quest for hydrated, radiant skin. It rids the skin of dead cells, enabling the active ingredients in our moisturizers to penetrate more effectively.
However, during dry or cold seasons, opt for gentle, regular exfoliation. Aggressive exfoliants can damage the already delicate skin barrier, leading to increased dryness - a scenario best avoided during the festive season.
Exfoliate your skin regularly and help it regain its natural radiance with Dermaceutic Foamer 5 or 15.
STEP 4: USE HYDRATING PRODUCTS

While a hot bath may be tempting during the colder months, it can accelerate the sweating process, leading to faster skin dehydration. Opt instead for soothing lukewarm showers and baths to help preserve your skin's precious hydration during the festivities.
In addition to temperature adjustments, it's essential to avoid irritating skincare products that can exacerbate dryness or irritation. Embrace mild, hydrating cleansers and avoid harsh ingredients such as alcohol and fragrances. A gentle skincare is non-negotiable when it comes to preserving your skin's glow and radiance over the festive season.
Dermaceutic Advanced Cleanser effectively removes make-up and excess sebum, for daily cleansing. Your skin appears clean, purified, and feels hydrated.
STEP 6: DON'T FORGET YOUR SPF
PROTECT YOUR SKIN FROM THE SUN WHILE hydrating IT.
At Dermaceutic we recommend you to protect your skin every day as you are permanently exposed to the sun’s UV rays. An effective sunblock is classified as a broad-spectrum sunblock. It should provide protection against UVA and UVB rays at the least an SPF or 50. It should also be defined as having at least an SPF of 50.
We offer highly effective, everyday solutions to protect your skin from the sun while keeping it hydrated. Our expertise in dosing and combining premium actives enables us to ensure optimized product effectiveness, try our Sun Ceutic 50+ or K Ceutic to stay hydrated and protected!

At last, everyone's skin is unique, and what works for one person may not work for another. The key is to pay attention to your skin's needs, be patient, and adapt your skincare routine accordingly to achieve the best results and always seek professional advice.
Dermatologists can provide personalized recommendations and treatments to address your unique needs. Schedule an annual skin checkup to catch any potential issues early.
