We’re entering the time of year when we tend to see a lot of dry skin. The cold is the biggest problem, and obviously, the heating. There are some who look forward to this time of year and there are others who regret it. One way or the other you deal with it, what is clear is that if your skin suffers excessively in winters, it needs to be treated.

One of the most common myths we often hear when we have tight skin is “use a lot of moisturizer”. That’s right, yes; But this is not the only solution your skin is demanding. Perhaps you need to change your diet, drink more water, or even apply a mask with extra hydration during the night.

Whether you have dry or oily skin, but you feel tight on your face; There are masks that will help you wake up with a nice face without doing anything. Are these two-faced masks, or are they the same; The idea of ​​using two products at night that act on the skin while you sleep in a more concentrated way when the skin is very dry at very specific moments. It could be due to cold, stress or something else.

others call it
heo cosmetics, And what are they? These are products that help keep skin extra hydrated (which means not oily). These abbreviations mean:
Moisturizers, Emollients and Occlusives, For one thing, moisturizers are “conditioning agents that regulate water levels in the skin in a different way. They form hydrogen bonds with water, so they are able to retain moisture and keep the skin hydrated.” Stabilize water molecules and also preserve the intercellular spaces between skin cells to maintain skin structure.” Raquel Gonzalez, a cosmetologist and director of education at Perricone MD, explains.

Emollients are composed of long chain fatty acids that can affect the production of lipid molecules, improve membrane and cell activity, upregulate the skin barrier and repair skin permeability,” says Elizabeth San, Technical Director by Medic8 Gregorio argues.

And finally, occlusion helps create a greater skin barrier. So that we understand it, says Estefania Nieto, technical director of Omoroviza, “It is a film that holds the water content of the tissue with the function of reducing transepidermal water loss.”

One of the products that perform this function is from the Medik brand, which is one of the brands of such celebrities as Victoria Beckham, Hailey Bieber. This is the HEO mask and some beauty centers have already tested it, such as The Secret Lab.

«The next morning my skin was very rested and hydrated, looking very beautiful…plump and very luscious. This sounds like a great product to me, a basic toiletry bag you turn to when you feel your skin needs it. And to top it off, it’s even ideal for oily skin like mine!”

These are two products that contain moisturizers, amino acids, and ceramides that help hydrate, strengthen, and nourish the skin. To use it, the brand states that you must apply “After cleansing at night, step one is applied to the face, neck and décolleté, avoiding the eye area. Let it absorb for a few minutes.” and when this is passed, phase two should be applied to the same areas. Do I have to remove anything? No, both phases are allowed to act throughout the night.

Another advantage of this double mask is that it can be used by oily skin at certain times when the skin is very dry. In any case, if you are not convinced and you usually have excess sebum, there are other masks that can help you during winter.
