Winter skin tips
Winter is tricky for a few reasons: Lack of lush nature, freezing temps, drying indoor heat, early evening darkness, and the perpetual gray outside are just a few. It’s a time for introspection and inviting our energy and attention inward. As a natural beauty expert and someone who’s learning to love winter, I’m excited to share my tips and tricks to help make the season a more delicious and pleasurable one for all.
Here are my self-care tips to help boost your mood, save your skin, and bring the best of nature into your routine to inspire a connection to yourself and to the earth:
1. Make the bathroom a sanctuary.
Making your bathroom a botanical sanctuary is my an amazing goal. Adding eucalyptus hanging from my shower head, bundled candlest burning and baths with rose petals from a local farm will make you bath a warm and welcoming spa.
2. Prioritize your hands.
I carry Hydrating Hand Cream in my purse for my hands. A special winter edition which is rich with butters and oils and keeps the hands soft for a long time.
3. Find an excellent face cream.
Sensitive Care Facial Cream is great because this product agrees with most everyone’s skin, is super hydrating and sooth all redness and skin irritations.
The UltraRich face cream will feed your skin with the precious oils that are best for dry, aging skin.
4. Simplify ingredients.
The cold triggers all sorts of reactions that are less than ideal. One way to combat this is with avoiding harsh cleansers and overperfumed products. I like to wash my skin with the most gentle cleanser I can find, which is why I love the face cleanser. The fragrance-free Sensitive Skin Facial Cream is perfect, too, and I like to apply it with my jade roller.
5. Try aromatherapy.
I love starting my day with citrus—it’s bright and energizing, and counters the effects of feeling cold, dark, and gray.
from Sweet orange to Lemongrass or Grapefruit, they are realy up lifting smells!
For relaxing, Lavender is always a winner, which i like to mix with Chamomile.
