How to care for yourself properly when the outside temperature drops below zero?
If you have normal or a bit dry skin then you have to wash your face at least an hour before leaving the house. If it's really freezing outside, you shouldn't wash your face at all before going out, but stick to wiping with gentle cleansing milk.
After drying your face well with a towel apply a greasier day cream. Areas under your eyes need special attention, but you should never do this shortly before leaving the house. Leave at least an hour between creaming and going out. Even a thin layer of make-up on creamed skin protects the face.
Apply a moisturizing cream to your face also a few hours before heading out hiking or skiing in the mountains. No matter whether it’s sunny or frosty outside – your face needs moisturizing.

Instead of dry skin, many women are troubled by excessively greasy skin that tends to cause clogged pores and inflamed pimples. A little suggestion:
- Wash your face twice per day with boiled water and soap. After your evening wash, rinse your face with a horsetail brew that has a drying effect. To make horsetail brew, pour one glass of cold water on 1 spoon of horsetail preparation and boil for 20 minutes. Let it clear up and cool before using.
With cold weather arriving, you always need to use seasonal creams. But there is also a host of homemade masks that work well on normal skin.

This procedure can be repeated every evening and morning before heading to work.
