It’s that time of year again when our skin undergoes all sorts of changes.
The chilly temps expose our skin to dry air that saps the moisture out of our skin and indoor artificial heating takes the same toll.
As if this wasn’t enough, our skin also goes through stress from all the holiday parties, late nights and endless glasses of bubbly.
It’s not all bad news!
Of course the festive season is a time to gather those nearest and dearest and spend some quality time together, and with a few simple tips and tricks you’ll be able to tackle any skincare woes so you can focus on what’s really important.
We can’t wait for you to dive into our latest post!
Watch the sugar
We know that this time of year is all about comfort food from pumpkin pie to candy cane chocolate bark, but if your treats are made with real sugar then you may notice a decline in the health of your skin.
Sugar saps the moisture from your skin cells and can leave it looking pretty dull, but to prevent this why not switch out sugar for healthier alternatives?
These paleo festive-inspired treats will ensure you don’t miss out but you won’t have to worry about your skin being affected.
Try a humidifier
A humidifier is an excellent way to put some moisture back into the air (and your skin!) in a jiffy.
Humidifiers blow a continual stream of steam into the air to help replace lost moisture and you’ll feel and see the benefits pretty quickly.
Goodbye dull, itchy skin and hello hydration and radiance!
Another awesome tip is to enjoy a steamy bath after you have done your makeup, before a night out for an instant dewy skin effect. Just be sure to wear a shower cap so you don’t ruin your hairstyle!
Use natural ingredients on your skin
For head to toe radiance, you cannot go wrong with our silky, luxurious body lotions formulated with beautiful butters and oils to lock in moisture and improve the health of your skin.
Many conventional lotions are formulated with harmful chemicals that can put your health at risk, not to mention dry out your skin which is the last thing you need at this time of year.
Don’t use hot water on your skin
You can enjoy a steamy shower or bath, just make sure the water isn’t scalding because hot water actually strips natural oils out of the skin which is something you don’t really want or need!
Stick to lukewarm water to help maintain your skin’s delicate moisture balance and to prevent impairing your skin’s lipid barrier.
Sometimes it’s the smallest, simplest tips that truly make all the difference. We hope you follow these because you won’t be disappointed!
