Winter Skin Care

Jan 13, 2024

Winter is a magical season filled with cozy sweaters, hot cocoa, and snowy landscapes. However, as the temperature drops, many of us experience the not-so-magical side effect of dry skin. The cold, dry air can leave our skin feeling tight, itchy, and flaky, causing discomfort and even pain. But fear not, dear readers, for I have compiled a list of five remedies for dry skin that will keep your skin hydrated and glowing all winter long.

1. Stay Hydrated - The first step in combatting dry skin is to hydrate from the inside out. It's essential to drink plenty of water throughout the day, especially during winter when we tend to drink less water due to the colder weather. Aim for at least eight glasses of water a day to keep your skin hydrated and plump. Consider a few crystals of quality grey sea salt or pink Himalayan salt before drinking natural spring water to make sure your cells are primed and ready to absorb the water. Ever wonder why when you drink water it goes right through you and you still feel thirsty and have dry skin? Your body isn’t receiving all the minerals it needs to be able to properly absorb water. Don’t take my word for it, give it a try and let me know how it goes! I’m genuinely curious to hear how this process goes for others.

2.Exfoliate gently - Regular exfoliation helps remove dead skin cells and allows moisturizers to penetrate more effectively. Use a gentle exfoliator once or twice a week to avoid over-exfoliating, which can lead to irritation and further dryness.

3. Aloe Vera - The ancient Egyptians are known for their beauty rituals, and one of their secrets was using aloe vera to moisturize their skin. This wonder plant contains antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals that soothe and hydrate the skin. Invest in a quality aloe vera gel (no dyes!) or extract and apply it to your skin after showering for maximum hydration.

4. Yarrow Oil - This lesser-known oil is a game-changer for dry skin. Yarrow oil is rich in fatty acids and has anti-inflammatory properties that soothe and nourish dry, irritated skin. It also helps to repair and protect the skin's natural barrier. Apply a few drops of yarrow oil on your face and body, and you'll notice a significant improvement in your skin's moisture levels. My skin serum is perfect for combating dry winter skin. This serum contains a blend of natural oils, including yarrow oil, to deeply moisturize and replenish the skin's moisture levels. It immediately soothes dry tight skin, encourages healing inflammation and smoothing fine lines and is suitable for most skin types, making it a must-have in your winter skincare routine.

5. Avoid Petroleum-Based Products - Many commercial skincare products use petroleum-based ingredients, which can strip the skin's natural oils and make it dryer in the long run. Keep an eye on the ingredient list and opt for products that contain natural, nourishing oils like jojoba, argan, or coconut oil.

In conclusion, dry skin is a common issue, especially during the winter months. However, with these remedies, you can say goodbye to flaky, uncomfortable skin and hello to a hydrated, glowing complexion. Remember to stay hydrated, with salts and mineral spring water, incorporate aloe vera and yarrow oil into your routine, and avoid petroleum and alcohol-based products. And don't forget to include my skin serum product for an extra boost of hydration. Cheers to healthy, glowing skin all winter long!
