Winter is notorious for wreaking havoc on the skin. The cold temperatures and wind combined with the ultra-drying effects of indoor heat can leave you with dull and pasty winter skin. But just because the barometer drops doesn’t mean you have to settle. Here are some tips to help keep your skin hydrated so you can trade your flakey skin for a healthy, glowing complexion.
Skip Long, Hot Showers
Okay, that’s probably the last thing you want to hear when there’s snow on the ground and you had to leave your warm bed to get ready for the day. But it’s true. Those long, hot showers are completely stripping your skin of natural moisture and dehydrating it. Instead, opt for shorter showers and use a hydrating body wash such as our Emu Body Wash. Made from a blend of emu oil and shea butter, this creamy wash has received rave reviews leaving skin feeling silky smooth.
Immediately Moisturize Post-Shower
Just moments after you step out of the shower, capture the moisture by lathering up with our rich and soothing Body Butter. Made from sweet-smelling cocoa butter, our body butter penetrates deep into the skin for the ultimate in hydration. Use on the whole body all winter long to reap the benefits of high quality, oils rich in fatty acids.
Use a Hydrating Face Wash
It may seem contradictory to wash your face with oil, but the lack of oil is what can cause acne. Keep your skin clear, clean, and completely hydrated with our Avocado Cleansing Oil. Avocado oil is the perfect way to dissolve both facial oil and dirt, without stripping away the precious fatty layer that balances skin, so your skin is always left feeling clean and balanced.
Remember to Moisturize Your Face
After you wash your face, you’re going to want to always apply a hydrating and soothing moisturizer. Try our Rice Bran Moisturizer. This daily moisturizing treatment is ideal for the face because it contains healing Vitamin E and naturally occurring sunscreens. A little goes a long way with this powerful serum. One application and you’ll be hooked!
Give Your Skin a Drink
If your skin is feeling dry and itchy, give it a boost with our Hydrating Face Mist.
Made with hydrating aloe, it’s the perfect solution to anytime dry skin because
it can be sprayed directly over makeup. No matter what the season brings, your
skin will always look dewy fresh and glowing.
Don’t Forget Your Lips
No matter how beautiful your skin is, if your lips are dry and chapped, the look isn’t complete. Keep your pucker perfectly pretty with our hydrating lip balms. Your lips will feel fresh and smooth after every application. And, if you want that perfect pop of color, we have Lip Tints, too.
Winter doesn’t have to mean your beauty routine has to get icy. Take a few or all of these tips into consideration for hydrating and healthy-looking skin from now until spring!
