5 tips to banish dry skin this winter
As the seasons change, so should your skin routine. You may find that moisturizers that work perfectly fine in the summer and spring months, do not serve their purpose as well during the harsh winter months. This article will provide you with all you need to keep your skin hydrated this winter.
- Add more moisture
This is a no-brainer. In order to survive the severe elements, your skin needs more moisture. Ditch the water-based products and go for a product which is rich in essential oils to lock in moisture and keep skin hydrated. One of the best oil-based products for winter includes moisturizing body balm, which is rich and thick and is perfect for keeping the skin supple.
- Protect against the winter sun
Sunscreen is not just for when you are lazing by the pool on a sunny December day, as the winter sun has been found to be just as harsh on the skin. Sun protector balm is a great soft and natural way to nourish the skin and the SPF ensures that your skin is protected from harsh UV rays.
- Drink more water
It is essential to hydrate from the inside, to see the results on the outside. If your skin is looking dull and dry, you may just need a glass of water. It can be especially tough to drink water on those extremely cold days. I suggest spicing up your H2O by adding lemon and honey to a cup of hot water, for a warm winter treat.
- Love your hands and feet
The skin on your hands and feet is generally thinner, with fewer oil glands, which makes them especially susceptible to becoming dry and cracked. Our nourishing hand creamed balm is excellent for sealing in moisture on the delicate skin on your hands and our cracked heel balm should be used daily after a bath to keep dry cracked heels at bay.
- Avoid hot water
It may be tempting to crank the hot water on full blast when taking a bath or shower, but this is especially damaging for your delicate skin as excessive hot water strips the skin of its natural moisture. Lukewarm temperatures with a few drops of essential oil will help to retain moisture and destress your body.
