Winter is coming…
And you know what that means, right?
“Hmm… hot chocolate and cozying up by the fireside?” we hear you say. Of course! We’re all for it! Bring on the bunny hills too!
But when it comes to our skin? Not so much love there!
When the temperatures start to dip, your skin starts to become parched due to the dryness in the air. And if you’re one of the unlucky (or lucky depending on how you see it!) ones in a cooler climate this year, you’re going to have to take some extra care of your skin!
You’ve come to the right place, in this article we’re going to share with you our top 3 winter skin care tips that’ll have your skin dewy and bright all season long!
Often overlooked, a facial mist is a must have companion for your skin all year long; especially when the chill in the air saps your skin of moisture. Rosewater is the ideal choice as it provides wonderful hydrating properties to dry skin and when combined with skin-loving oils, can go a long way in reducing dry, flaky skin.
Bonus? You can even spritz your hair to help reduce dandruff and stimulate hair growth.
The holy grail of skincare for winter - facial oils! They’re a must for all skin types in the chilly weather, but we know what you’re thinking - “There are SO many to choose from, which one is the right one for me?!”
Great question! While it’s true not all facial oils are made the same, some are more forgiving than others. Jojoba oil for example is one such oil that all skin types can benefit from due to it being so similar to our skin’s sebum (oil). This multi-purpose oil is the perfect starting point for anyone new to facial oils, along with another one of our favourites, Prickly Pear Seed Oil which is nourishing and revitalizing in it’s own right!
When it comes to applying your oil, it’s good to experiment on your own skin with some people preferring it before a serum and others after their serum. Here’s an effective skincare regimen we recommend!
The combination of the colder air outside and the warm/dry indoor heating causes your skin cells to die a lot faster which means you’ll have to exfoliate more regularly! Exfoliating layers of dead skin cells allows new skin cells to surface without contending with those layers above. Once or twice a week should be enough for most people.
Another big bonus of getting rid of those dead layers is that your skin becomes a lot more receptive to moisturizers and oils you apply!
We hope this helps you get your skin prepped and taken care of all winter long! Don’t be shy to reach out at any time, we’re always here to help!
