The first step in winter skin care is moisturizing. Cold air can remove moisture from the skin, so it's important to use a rich moisturizer.

Biotin is a water-soluble vitamin found in both plant and animal products. It is also known as vitamin H and vitamin B7. The human body has a supply of biotin for 2-7 weeks. The human body itself is not capable of producing biotin, but our own intestinal microflora partially does. About 10% of the biotin produced by bacteria is absorbed, which is why most of the vitamin must still be obtained from a healthy and balanced diet. Biotin is a coenzyme of carboxylases, which is why biotin participates in the synthesis of fatty acids, amino acids and carbohydrates (glucose). Biotin is also necessary in the metabolism of folic acid, vitamin B12 and pantothenic acid.
