  • The Beauty Essentials for February

    Written by Yasmine M

    February is here, and our skin can feel a bit dry, sensitive and just overall itchy. To learn more about how we can protect our skin barrier and hydrate our skin in the best way, I reached out to a skin expert for one of my essential products this month, Eucerin's skin care expert Caroline Martinsson. ​

    ''Our skin barrier consists of various substances that provide the skin with both fat and moisture, while protecting it.'' Caroline states. Asking about how to protect our skin barrier during winter and washing our hands more durin the pandemic and to help get rid of germs. She continues saying that ''When you wash your skin too often or too hot, for example, you can reduce the skin's natural fatty substances that protect the skin, and it dries out more easily. Make sure to use moisturizing products that also contain lipids - fatty substances - to strengthen the skin barrier.'' Following that ''Then I think it's important to take care of your hands already when you wash them, so remember to use a kind soap that moisturizes. Here I have to recommend pH5 Shower Oil, which cleans effectively and moisturizes at the same time. It is available as a refill, so it is easy to fill up the soap pump at home. And outdoor gloves are a must!''

    Here are the essential products for February.
