For many of us, myself included, colder weather brings a whole new set of skincare challenges that force us to shake up our skincare routines. Our sweat proof, oil reducing products will be set aside as cooler, drier temperatures begin to suck the moisture out of our skin. Those of us in more temperate climates may only have to make small alterations to our routines, while those in chillier and snowier regions may have an entirely different winter regimen.
Cold temperatures often come hand in hand with low humidity. A lack of moisture in the air can leave our skin parched and dry, so incorporating products that deeply moisturize the skin is essential for maintaining balance. Wind can also strip away moisture, causing skin to flake, crack and skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis to flare up.
WINTER SKINCARE REGIMEN
In the wintertime, it’s essential to provide your skin with an array of nourishing products that help balance, repair, and moisturize.
After cleansing, make sure to exfoliate a few times a week to help gently buff away dry patches to reveal smooth, radiant skin. For congestion-prone skin, try the Wildcraft Buff Face & Body Scrub or the Happy Skin Himalayan Facial Scrub to keep blackheads at bay. If you have drier or more sensitive skin, opt for the Petal Purity Exfoliating Cleanser. The smooth jojoba beads will gently exfoliate, preventing irritation and promoting skin cell turnover.
Next, it’s time to nourish the skin. My favorite way to do this in the wintertime is via a facial oil. Normal to dry complexions will enjoy the Clary Sage Beauty Drops. The Wildcraft Regenerating Facial Serum is a great choice for those looking for an anti-aging boost to their regimen. Containing ingredients such as Seabuckthorn, Rosehip, Frankincense, and Palmarosa oils, this facial oil is perfect for nourishing complexions normal, dry, and mature skin types. If you’re on the oilier side give the SkinOwl Geranium Beauty Drops a go! This Argan oil based formula helps combat hormonal acne while brightening and moisturizing the skin.
Don’t forget about your delicate eye area! Make sure you’re protecting this region with a brightening and hydrating product such as the Wildcraft Renew Eye Serum. With ingredients rich in antioxidants, this serum helps to minimize the effects of stress and environment pollutants while plumping the skin.
WINTER BODY CARE REGIMEN
While your face is drinking up all these beautiful, natural ingredients, let’s treat the rest of our body. Say goodbye to scaly legs with our array of body scrubs. Our current wintertime favorite has to be the Coffee Sugar Bath Scrub. Caffeine-rich coffee, energizes your skin, smoothing and tightening it as it reduces the appearance of cellulite. Sometimes we’ll even leave it on as a body mask to reap the full benefits of this super ingredient. Plus, coconut, almond, and vitamin E oils help to deeply nourish the skin while brightening dark spots and lightening stretch marks.
Once you’ve rinse off, seal in moisture with a body oil. Choose between our Jasmine & Rose or our French Lavender Body Oils, both filled with skin-nourishing oils such as pomegranate and green tea extract which helps with anti-aging, avocado oil which moisturizes, and safflower oil which helps prevent skin congestion.
With this skin regimen behind you, you’ll be beating all your winter skin woes in no time!
