Our top 10 tips for caring for your skin this winter

It's officially winter!  I love the cooler months.  The evenings are cooling down, I get to wear my Ugg boots, and the morning mists and winter colours are beautiful.My skin doesn’t love winter so much though.  Does your skin ever feel dry in the cooler months?  There is less moisture in the air in winter which can dry out your skin.  To help you keep your skin in tip-top condition, I’ve listed my top 10 tips for loving your skin this winter.

 

1. Wash in warm not hot water. 

As tempting as it is to jump under a hot shower on cold days or dunk your hands in a hot sink of water to defrost, hot water can strip valuable oils from your skin drying it out even more.

2. Choose gentle moisturising cleansers

Use a gentle moisturising facial cleanser or balm and body wash.  Cleansers can be drying, particularly gel cleansers, so opt for a lotion or a balm in the cooler months.

3. Exfoliate regularly

This has the benefit of removing the dead skin cells so your moisturiser can be more easily absorbed.   I like to exfoliate my face twice a week (spoiler alert – we’ve been getting rave reviews on our new facial exfoliator, and it’s almost ready to share with you!), and use the Coconut and Vanilla Body Scrub daily.  The Body Scrub has the benefit of moisturising (coconut oil) as well as exfoliating (Epsom salts).

4. Moisturise

Moisturise your face and body as soon as you finish washing and drying yourself.  This helps to seal in some of the moisture from your shower or bath and stops your skin from becoming dehydrated.    

5. Love your hands

Moisturise your hands regularly throughout the day and before going to bed.  I love using Miss Magoo’s Rose Geranium Hand Lotion during the day, and the Hand & Heel Cream at night (I also slather it on my elbows and heels).

6.  Apply lip balm daily. 

Your lips need moisturising too!

7.  Remember your night time routine

Your skin repairs itself at night, so even if you don’t wear makeup during the day, it is important that you wash your face at night to remove any dirt and dust that have accumulated during the day.  Follow up with a moisturiser.  For some extra TLC, you can use an eye cream and/or a facial elixir for extra hydration.

8.  Hydrate from within

Drink plenty of filtered water.  You need to hydrate from the inside as well as the outside.  Eating lots of water-dense foods like celery, tomatoes and zucchini can help.

9.  Cover up

Cover up with gloves, hats and scarves to protect yourselves from the weather.

10. Protect your skin

Apply sunscreen if you’re going out in the sun.  Remember, you can still burn in winter!
