Protect Your Skin This Winter

Nov, 4, 2016

Winter is just a month away and as the weather starts to change, and so should your skin care regimen. It's the perfect time to prep your skin for the winter months ahead and here are some helpful tips to keep your skin feeling soft and glowing.

Exfoliate to get your skin looking fresh and healthy.

Facing sudden changes in temperature during winter leaves a drying effect on your skin. By keeping the skin stimulated, you'll encourage healthy turnover of cells and stimulate muscle tone. When you exfoliate properly, you remove the layer of dead skin cells and prep your skin to absorb moisturizer. If you have oily skin, you may want to gently buff your face a few times a week, while sensitive skin needs less frequent exfoliation.

Try the new and improved Advanced Facial Cleansing Brush designed for the face, neck, and body. This eco-friendly, advanced 2-speed facial cleansing tool will cleanse, exfoliate and massage in one easy step. It fits in the size of your palm and is safe to use in the shower.

Sunscreen is a must-have for all-year, all-seasons. 

Even in cold temperatures, don't skip sunscreen because the sun's harmful rays are just as strong. Your skin in winter can be more sensitive to the sun than your summer skin, and with all that sunshine reflecting off the snow and ice, it's no different than spending a summer day by the lake or ocean. Use a lotion with SPF 30 or higher every morning especially if you spend a lot of time outdoors – and don't forget to protect your lips because the skin is thinner and very sensitive. 

If you have dry and irritated skin due to too much sun exposure, consider the Nourish Fair Trade Certified™ Organic Shea Butter. It provides intense moisture to help soothe irritated and chapped skin. It can be used everywhere, including elbows, knees, feet, hands, face and hair.

Have more than one type of moisturizer.

Your spring and summer moisturizer may not be the right moisturizer for winter, and what's best for your face may not work for your hands and nails. 

A moisturizer that's oil-base will create a protective layer on the skin to help retain more moisture. Try the Organic Cream-to-Oil Skin Solve, a blend of shea, coconut oil, sweet orange and rose hip can be applied neatly all over the body without the greasy residue. This skin solve is ideal for packing in your bag to help treat dry hands and nails.

If you can't take a heavy moisturizer on your face but want a stronger formula to combat the dryness of winter, consider a serum followed by a lighter-weight cream. The Pure Hydrating Argan Face Serum with apricot and rose hip, is designed to deeply hydrate and reveal smoother, softer and more supple skin with improved tone. Moroccan Argan oil, packed with restorative omega fatty acids, intensely hydrates and replenishes. Or try the multi-benefit Overnight Recovery Serum with argan oil and evening primrose oil, replenishes essential nutrients to the skin and works to deeply nourish, replenish hydration, and promote cell turnover to reveal fresher, brighter skin in the morning. 

Reduce the heat in your shower and lock in moisture.

When it's cold outside, nothing feels better than a nice hot shower! However, frequent hot showers not only washes away your skin's natural oils, but it can also lead to dry and itchy skin and make existing skin conditions worse like eczema or dandruff. It's better for your skin, scalp and hair, to turn the temperature down and pat down your body leaving a bit of water on your skin to help lock in hydration with the right skin moisturizer. 

Cleanse your body with the Moisturizing Cream Body Wash, an organic hydrating blend of soothing aloe, nourishing coconut milk, antioxidant-rich Vitamin E and a proprietary blend of moisturizing essential oils. It's very gentle for sensitive skin and comes in seven refreshing scents.

Lock in the moisture with the rejuvenating organic Argan Butter or Rose Butter. These silky body butters are fast-absorbing, deeply nourishing that leaves your skin looking healthy and feeling super-soft. With regular use, it helps to improve skin's elasticity, texture, and tone.

Rose hip and rosewater naturally aids in tightening, balancing and toning the skin.
