Secondly, it is important to protect your skin from external aggressions, such as the sun, the cold or pollution. To do this, it is important to determine your needs . By understanding and analyzing our daily exposure .
Are we very exposed to the sun and UV rays? Or rather exposed to wind and cold..? This identification allows you to adapt your day cream so that it is more or less rich, moisturizing, purifying, with or without UV protection.
