How to keep your sensitive skin happy through the colder months
Did you know that with every degree the temperature drops, our skin produces 10% less oil? All skin types naturally become drier in winter, as there’s less humidity in the air.
That’s not the only offender. Moisture-sapping central heating and the effects of a holiday diet can all take their toll. It’s very common that skin may start to feel tight, distressed and in a general need of some TLC.
Here are some gentle ways to combat the harshness of winter, and keep your skin healthy all season long – no matter what skin type you are.
Exfoliation without irritation
If come winter you’re noticing flaky patches, you’re not alone. Using an exfoliator can seem daunting, but don’t worry, not all exfoliators are created equal. Gently sloughing away the flakiness lets your oil or moisturiser seep deeper into the skin and do its job better.
Our Omega and vitamin rich Kukui & Jojoba Bead Skin Brightening Exfoliator is an ultra-gentle approach to exfoliating.
The 100% natural and biodegradable Jojoba Beads gently buffs even the most delicate skin, without causing irritation or damage. Massage onto dry skin and watch it transform into a silky milk when moistened. Your soft, smooth and nourished skin will thank you for it.
Add a facial oil to your winter skin routine to lock in hydration. Massaging 2-3 drops of our Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil into clean, slightly damp skin, or adding it to your usual moisturiser can work wonders.
Bursting with unsaturated fatty acids, the Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil will be sure to give you a much-needed hydration hit. The natural antioxidant beta-carotene can also ease the damaging and drying effects of winter. And if you’re prone to redness and blemishes, its anti-inflammatory properties will help to soothe and rebalance.
Chapped lips and cracked hands are a common winter woe. Our Head To Toe Hero Buriti Balm is formulated with a combination of nourishing organic plant oils. Use it on your direst areas, feel it absorb, soothe and relieve.
Antioxidant rich Buriti Oil can really boost your skin’s suppleness. While the natural anti-inflammatory Calendula helps to calm the skin. And a unique blend of Omegas will help with hydration and protect your skin’s delicate barrier.
With these gentle tweaks to your routine, achieving that elusive winter glow might not be so difficult.
