It’s that time of year again when the temperatures begin to drop and our winter sweaters start to take up room in our closets once more.
While we don’t mind some of the comforts cooler weather offers from cozy conversations by the fire to sipping on creamy pumpkin spiced lattes as we venture out into the crisp air, our skin may not feel the same way.
It’s a double whammy on our skin at this time of year when we are faced with dry, harsh air outdoors and then find no relief indoors thanks to artificial heating.
Fortunately, by following a few simple tips and tricks you can manage any challenges your skin faces during the frosty months!
So get cozy, get comfy and get reading!
Don’t leave the house without protection
Don’t even think about facing off against the elements without a face full of protection!
We haven’t forgotten about you if you’re a guy! Our scruff rescue daily moisturizer is your skin savior in a bottle this winter!
If your skin is especially dry and needs an extra potent dose of moisture then we highly recommend checking out our radiance facial oils featuring our signature Rosa Moschata for skin that simply glows with dewy radiance!
Invest in a humidifier
A humidifier is your secret weapon against dry, indoor air this chilly season.
Humidifiers shoot a continual stream of steam into the air to replace lost moisture and you will experience almost immediate relief from dry, itchy skin!
Enhance the experience by adding in some essential oils to enjoy some aromatherapy benefits.
Lavender and Rosemary to soothe and calm, orange and mint to uplift and help you to focus, and Ylang Ylang and Jasmine to set the mood during a romantic evening in.
Avoid steamy showers and baths
We know how tempting it is to use your toe to turn on the hot tap to enjoy just a little more of that blissfully hot water as you soak your troubles away, but unfortunately, hot water drastically dries out your skin and will only add to your skin care woes.
Keep the water lukewarm if you can and be sure to pour in some of our beautiful skin rescue shower gelee as your water runs to enjoy a hydrating bath experience. Or scrub up in the shower; it’s formulated with a gorgeous infusion of organic herbs and essential oils to deeply moisturize and condition parched skin.
Our essential oil blend, including organic palmarosa, geranium and neroli, will calm your nerves as it soothes your sensitive skin and you will step out of the shower or tub feeling blissfully chilled out!
By following these hydrating tips, dry skin won’t be an issue for you this winter. Besides, you have more important things to focus on, like all those awesome winter activities!
