During these months it is normal for our skin to feel drier, more sensitive and tight, due to the contrasts of cold and heating. Today I share with you how to protect your skin.
When it is cold, the capillaries of the skin are narrowed causing not enough oxygen to reach the epidermis and delaying cell renewal. As a result, dead cells accumulate and prevent the skin's own oil from reaching the surface to nourish it naturally. In addition, the thermal shock of heating accentuates dryness, itching and redness.
How to protect the skin from the cold
To help the skin regain its balance and reinforce its natural protective layer, it is important to use creams rich in moisturizing active ingredients of plant origin, which, being similar to the skin's pH, are better absorbed and assimilated.
It is advisable to nourish the skin twice a day, especially at night, when the peak of cell regeneration is reached.

The best ingredients to protect the skin from the cold
During this time, the skin needs ingredients that stimulate its ability to regenerate and at the same time create a natural waterproof barrier that prevents water loss. The following ingredients are present in MOONLIGHT creamy moisturizer.
Jojoba oil: our skin is composed of an acid mantle that creates a protective barrier to defend us from germs and retain moisture. This sebum that coats the skin is a natural wax ester, which often compromises its production, resulting in a dry, tired and dull appearance of the skin. Jojoba oil is actually a liquid wax and not a triglyceride like other vegetable oils. This means that the skin recognizes its similarity to the natural wax ester and allows it to pass through the epidermis, carrying with it all the nutrients of jojoba oil to deep layers of the skin where cell regeneration and synthesis occurs. It acts as a sebum regulator, balances the pH of the skin, provides vitamins A, B, D and E, minerals and essential fatty acids that fill in the gaps between skin cells, slowing down their metabolism and repairing damaged skin tissue.
Argan oil: it has a composition similar to that of skin lipids. Its high concentration of Omega-9 improves skin elasticity and therefore achieving a smoother effect. Omega-3 and 6 fatty acids give this vegetable oil interesting anti-inflammatory and skin tone unifying properties. It also contains tocopherols and carotenoids that act as skin regenerators, alleviating the symptoms of skin aging.
Calendula oleate: obtained through maceration of calendula flowers, this precious oil soothes skin inflammations thanks to its faradiol content, causing a soothing and healing effect. Its flavonoid content stimulates the proliferation of epidermal cells, which accelerates skin regeneration. In addition, the fatty acids present in the composition of this macerated oil promote skin elasticity.
Cocoa butter: composed of mono-triglycerides, fatty acids and crude enzymes, it helps cell repair and rejuvenation, slowing down the visible aging process and promoting deep nourishment. In addition, it has an exceptional antioxidant content that protects the skin's collagen and elastin.
Rose hydrolate: the rose is one of the flowers with the most healing and protective properties thanks to its active organic compounds such as vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. In addition to its delicate aroma, it provides numerous anti-inflammatory and moisturizing benefits that help restore skin vitality.
