UV exposure

Climatic conditions

Air conditioners, dry office air, and the November wind and winter frosts – all this also contributes to dryness. Put a moisturizing haze in the office cosmetic bag for the face, and before going out on a windy or frosty day, use a nourishing cream (half an hour before the exit). Leather will thank you.

Do not confuse dry skin with a combination
