Summary of the issue

Properly moisturize your body

A shower that is too hot with water that is a little too hard, a walk in the open air in cool weather, a room that is a little too heated... These are the conditions that can dehydrate the skin of your body. Here's what to do about it.

Body: why is my skin dehydrated?

Just like the skin on your face, the skin on your body varies due to different factors. Cold, wind, and sun can dry and dehydrate your skin as it weakens the balance of the upper layer of your skin. The hydrolipidic film that covers it is then altered and is not able to retain water.

This evaporates more easily and makes your skin uncomfortable. It feels tight and lacks suppleness and has red patches, sometimes flakes. 

This dehydration is mainly observed in winter, as heating increases the evaporation of water. This is also the case with chlorine in the swimming pool, unsuitable products or overly aggressive hair removal.

Why does skin need moisture?



"As soon as winter arrives, the color of my legs changes! Without cream, they become all white because of the dead cells that appear.”


What active ingredients can I use to moisturize my body?

Moisturizing the body means first of all helping the epidermis to restore its hydrolipidic film. And this is achieved by providing nutritious lipid-containing ingredients. Without these lipids, skin hydration cannot be maintained. It also works on the face.

Skincare that helps skin retain moisture throughout the day, therefore combining active ingredients that restore the skin’s barrier function and limit water evaporation, nourish and soothe. Thus protected, the skin is less sensitive to external influences.

How do I apply my body moisturizer?

During periods when your skin appears dehydrated, regularity is key.

Moisturize my body day to day

To avoid increasing dehydration, take your shower or bath in lukewarm water. Dab your skin dry without damaging it, and then move on to the body moisturizing step: spread the treatment between the two hands and apply it with the whole surface of the hand and with large circular movements. Delicately or vigorously, it all depends on the mood!

A weekly scrub to boost hydration

Just because your skin is temporarily dehydrated doesn't mean you shouldn't use body scrubs. On the contrary: a suitable scrub once a week will gently exfoliate the skin. It is now ready to receive its moisturizing body care!


You can adapt the texture of the treatment according to the degree of dehydration in your skin...or the season!

From the most fluid to the most enveloping, different textures exist to properly moisturize your body. If, on top of your dehydrated skin, your body is constantly dry, opt for a rich and nourishing treatment, in the form of a balm, for example. If your skin is exposed to dehydration, try a fluid milk.
To make life easier, you can also keep up with the season’s days: treat yourself to a comforting balm for the fall or winter, and a nourishing milk for spring to summer.
To quickly apply your skincare product for any texture, opt for non-greasy formulations.
