Winter is here! Well, maybe more or less depending on your climate. But colder days, more wind, and less humidity in the air because of heaters inside can have an effect on your skin. Here are five winter skin care tips to keep in mind and some of my favorite Neal’s Yard Remedies products as suggestions.
Use a more moisturizing cleanser. Instead of using a foaming cleanser, using a creamy one. I use Rose Facial Wash in the summer but love the luxury of Frankincense Refining Cleanser in the fall and winter.
When your skin needs extra loving, feed it! A good facial oil or serum after your toner but before your daily moisturizer will give your skin an extra boost to hold in more moisture. I love the Wild Rose Beauty Elixir. (I love it so much in fact that I wrote a post all about it.) It has some amazing ingredients including hyaluronic acid which can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water. It is a moisture magnet and can hold that moisture in your skin.
Don’t neglect your hands and feet! I don’t know about you, but one area that I tend to forget is putting lotion on my hands. I am washing my hands all day, but usually in a hurry and don’t take the time to put cream or lotion on my hands. I never forget my face, because that is more of a daily ritual in the morning and at night. But my poor hands! So I like to treat them to a nice moisturizing massage at night using our Citrus Hand Softener.
Getting rid of that extra dead skin is a great idea in the winter. That dead skin can prevent your other products working properly. My favorite for my body is our Seaweed Salt Scrub and for my face, the Honey and Orange Facial Scrub.
Watch your diet. Remember that our skin is affected by the inside out. It can be hard to get all the fruits and vegetables you need in the winter because they may not be in season. So do the best you can and consider Vitamin C Boost with Wild Rosehip to supplement.
These winter skin care tips should help create a more moisturize skin and get you ready for Spring and Summer. Do you want to stay informed on all my latest favorites? Join Alicia’s Organic VIPs on Facebook!
