How To Get Through Winter Without Dry Skin Breakouts
(It Just Takes a Few Simple Tweaks To Your Skincare Routine!)
The temperatures are slowly dropping, the leaves are changing an array of vibrant sunset colors and there’s a certain crispness in the air indicating the arrival of a new season.
While we love Fall and all the changes that come with it, we have to admit that our skin doesn’t feel the same way.
Cooler temperatures mean drier air, and dry air does not mesh well with our skin at all. Hydration is the key to youthful skin and we intend to keep it that way no matter the season!
In this article we’ll talk about a few tweaks you can make in your current routine to ensure your skin stays it’s healthiest, hydrated best all season long!
Exfoliate your way to glowing skin
First of all, don’t even think about applying your various lotions and potions if you haven’t scrubbed up in a while.
Exfoliation removes old skin build up that clogs the pores and prevents proper absorption of your hydrating products. It helps to boost blood circulation and promote a gorgeous, radiant glow!
For a daily exfoliation we recommend our Organic Facial Cleanser, packed in hydroxy-rich oils, soothing aloe and beautiful essential oils to deeply nourish and cleanse without ever stripping the skin of beneficial oils.
For a weekly exfoliation try our Cleopatra’s Complexion or Restorative Clay Facial Masque’s. Clay offers a deep detox to your skin, tightens the pores and makes your skin look and feel smooth and soft!
Turn up the moisture
If you’ve been wanting to try a serum or oil for a while then now is the perfect time!
Serums and oils are more concentrated in nutrients than moisturizers alone and offer superior hydration. Trust us, you won’t look back when you add one into your routine!
We have an array of excellent oils for you to choose from! Don’t think you need to avoid oils if your skin is oily either, because the rich antioxidant content of the oils we use help to reduce inflammation and prevent breakouts all while perfectly balancing moisture levels and adding the amount of hydration your specific skin type needs.
Apply your oils to slightly damp skin to enhance penetration and use your fingertips to press the oil into your skin, don’t rub!
Don’t forget the lotion
Lotions, too, are important for winter skin protection and offer quick moisturization!
Using a lotion for your hands and face will keep the skin moist, protect it from the harshness of the wind and cold, and soothe skin that has been irritated from the winter weather.
Our Daily Facial Moisturizer works wonders for your face and our Ultra Nurturing Hand and Body Lotion is excellent protection and hydration for your hands. Use a lotion when your skin feels dry and irritated, and when you need instant moisture like just before running out the door. Your face and hands will instantly feel soft, soothed and comfortable.
These winterizing tips are so simple yet will make all the difference! Say adios to dry, peeling skin and hello to your most luminous, dewy skin yet!
