Ah winter, the time of runny noses, chapped lips and dry skin, how wonderful! Can you detect my sarcasm? While summer is my favorite season, we have to survive winter every year, so we might as well do it looking our best. Read on to learn how to keep your skin looking dewy and bright throughout these cold months.
Clean With Caution
Sometimes what we don't do is just as important as what we do do! We say it all the time, but don't use harsh cleansers on your delicate facial skin. This is important all year round, but especially in the winter, when those cold winds zap the moisture from our skin.
Try our Two-Step Cleansing Systems as a gentle alternative to those other cleansers which strip your skin's natural barrier. And unless you exercise in the morning, you don't need to wash your face first thing, just splash some tepid water or wipe with a damp washcloth. Your skin's natural oils are actually healthy.
Luxuriate and Exfoliate
With drier skin, it's important to find gentle ways to exfoliate. Try our Intensive Immortal Elixir, which aids in cell turnover, removing dead surface skin to reveal your natural glow underneath.
You can also go with a scrub, if you skin isn't too sensitive. For normal skin, try our Organic Rejuvenating Coffee Scrub. For oily or acne-prone skin, try our LavaSalt Scrub made from lava sea salt and activated charcoal.
Replenish, Replenish, Replenish!
Make sure to put that moisture back into your skin. Try our Organic Facial Serum to nourish and hydrate, and for a treat, use our Intensive Skin Therapie overnight! This soothing balm will help calm your chapped and irritated skin.
Save Your Luscious Lips
Dry, chapped lips are a hallmark of cold temps, make sure to exfoliate them with our Organic Sweet Chai Lip Scrub, followed by our Lip Moisturizer to seal moisture in and keep your lips soft and smooth.
Winter Makeup Wins
Your makeup doesn't have to change too much over the winter, but you may want to consider using cream products, which are more hydrating and protective than powder ones. Our Creme Foundation or Tinted Sunscreen are great for a base, try our Botanical Colour Sticks for a delicious cream blush, and even your eyelids can get pampered with our Creme Eyeshadows! Any of our lip makeup will help moisturize and protect your lips.
Winter can be rough on our skin, but if you protect it properly, there's no reason why you can look dewy and glowing all year round!
