Keeping skin moist and hydrated during the winter months can be a challenge but we have some easy skincare tips that will keep skin glowing all winter long!
Turn the Furnace Down: Just by simply keeping the house a few degrees cooler, you can not only cut down on heating costs but also help your skin stay a little less dry and also help skin conditions like eczema from flaring up.
Purchase a Humidifier: The winter months are drier so the air in your home is drier too. Keeping some humidity in the air will keep skin dewy and lips healthier too. If you don't have a humidifier, keeping a large pot of water simmering on the stove with a few drops of essential oil or a couple of cinnamon sticks will keep moisture in the air and also have your home smelling sweet!
Avoid Super Hot Showers & Baths: By keeping your shower and bath water warm and not hot, you can help skin from drying out.
Moisturize! Everyone knows moisturizer helps keep skin soft and supple, but when you moisturize is also key! The best time to lock in moisture is right after washing your face or getting out of the shower. While skin is still damp, apply facial oil and follow with moisturizer.
Apply SPF Daily: We've all been told to wear sunscreen to avoid sunburn and keep out harmful rays in the summer, but wearing SPF is a must all year long. The sun's rays can penetrate through your car's windows, will accumulate just by walking outside doing errands on a daily basis all year long. Skin that isn't protected dries out and contributes to fine lines and wrinkles forming. Bottom line: Don't leave home without your daily dose of SPF!
Don't Over Cleanse: We don't believe in stripping your skin's precious, natural oils. That is why we suggest to only use our Purifying Facial Cleanser in the evening to remove the day's makeup and/or pollution from your skin. There's no need to cleanse in the morning. Simply splash face with water and moisturize.
Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate! The best way to keep skin moist and glowing is to drink plenty of water each day. Our bodies are made up of mostly water and your skin is the first place that shows dehydration and/or lack of water. Try to drink 8 glasses of water per day, and add a squeeze a lemon for a little extra Vitamin C and flavor.
Foods Matter: Eating plenty of vegetables, fruits and good fats like avocados, olive oil, salmon, etc. will help keep skin looking it's best not only in the winter but all year long. Healthy eating equals healthy skin and body.
Know What's in Your Skincare: Not all skincare is the same. Be sure you know what you are putting on your skin. Harmful toxins, parabens and other unhealthy ingredients are in skincare products all over the market. Our skincare ingredients are sourced from nature and are the finest sourced from around the globe. Natural, non-toxic, USDA certified organic. That's what we're all about!
