Anyone else notice their skin behaving oddly again?
Dry Skin and Winter Go Hand in Hand
Cold air, dry indoor heat, low humidity levels, and harsh winter wind can all zap your skin of moisture. This can leave your skin looking a lot less radiant than normal — not only your face, but also your hands, feet, and other areas exposed to the elements. Here are some easy steps you can take to keep your skin looking healthy, even when temperatures dip and there’s no escape from winter’s dry, cold air.
Save Our Skin and Switch Your Soap
That squeaky clean feeling is actually bad for your skin in winter, because it means you’ve washed off the natural protection that keeps your skin from drying out. Consider mild soaps such as our Bubbles Without The Bull which are gentle on the skin and don’t strip away essential oils.
Moisturise Straight After Washing
Water is actually super drying on the skin. So it’s important to add the moisture back straight after washing hands, face and body. Bursting with essential fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants, a magical golden oil is a body nourishment oil that replaces traditional crème based moisturises and has the unique ability to deeply nourish and balance all skin types + restore the skin to it's natural moisture levels.
Spritz Through the Day to Keep Dry Skin at Bay
Theres nothing quite like a little spritz to help rejuvenate and wake up first thing in the morning, or when you hit that afternoon slump. And... Mistify me is a great and no fuss way to directly deliver essential antioxidants and skin healing and hydrating vitamins to your face, anytime, anywhere.
Protect Protect Protect!
Did I mention PROTECT?? It’s so important. When heading outside for walks or exercise its important to protect your face and lips from the cold winter elements. Add a little of our a powerful concoction under your eye area and lips to prevent dry skin. Also use just before bedtime and apply to your face on top of your usual moisturiser, hands and feet. A powerful concoction is “hydroscopic” in nature which means it draws moisture from air to stop you from drying out!
These are just some ways you can keep your skin glowing during our cooler months. Another thing I like to do is keep a humidifier going by my bedside and in the living areas of the home, not only does the scent of essential oils uplift or calm my mood; but running a humidifier puts moisture back into the air to improve dry skin and help it retain hydration.
