Covid mask and irritated skin: my organic skincare routine this winter

This morning when I left my house, hat on my head and mask on my face, I made an observation:

With the cold, the repetitive washing of hands, the mask... our skin is not spoiled this year 😷!

The hydroalcoholic gel and the temperatures leave our skin all dried and weakened. It is theven worse for sensitive skins like mine...

❄️ Result: we are starting to have fine lines and our complexion is dull. Our hands are irritated and the chapping appear. So how do you take care of your skin while wearing a mask? 

here is my news anti-cold routine (and anti-aggression gel & mask), composed of 100% natural cosmetics.


1. Be sure to remove your makeup

When we come home in the evening, we are very happy to remove the mask. We finally breathe. But our skin also needs to breathe

To clean it without attacking it, a gentle cleansing milk is the best solution. With my super sensitive skin, I use the La Fare 1789 extra gentle cleansing milk, which is with organic calendula and soothes my skin 🌼.

Softness and efficiency! 

2. Finalize your make-up removal with micellar water or a toner

Second express step of make-up removal: micellar water. It helps to rid the skin of the last impurities and prepare it for the cream. 

Belesa Aigo Douco essential micellar water is perfect for this, and what I love is its sweet scent of Cévennes apple juice 🍎...

3. Repair your skin with a serum 

Now that the skin is clean and ready for treatment, I apply a few drops of botanic serum from So Bohème to nourish my skin and make it less sensitive. Yes, with a good serum and a good cream, sensitive skin is not inevitable!

4. Nourish your skin deeply 

Finally, to properly nourish your skin, you must choose an appropriate cream that moisturizes and protects.

My sensitive skin likes it right now. Optimist cream from Les Happycuriennes, also developed for the eye area.
