Combating Dry Skin During Winter

With the winter season, comes rough, red, dry and patchy skin, which is why it needs extra care and protection to combat these problems. During winter, the humidity levels tend to dip and the air becomes cold and dry. The dryness in the air causes the moisture in your skin to evaporate more quickly, making it red, dry and patchy. In order to keep your skin hydrated, it is better to use natural ingredients or products that contain natural ingredients that not only combat this inflammation and dryness, but also deeply nourish your skin and protect it.

Olive Oil

Natural oils play an important role in keeping your skin intensely moisturised and nourished. All you need to do is apply some to your face and skin and keep it on overnight. The antioxidants present in olive oil help soothe the skin and repair damaged cells due to excessive dryness. It can also help in preventing age-related wrinkles and fine lines. Alternatively, try our Queen B Natural Beauty Balm. Packed full of of Bee derived ingredients and natural oils, this has everything your dry skin needs during winter, and more.

Honey

Honey makes for a great moisturiser that can be applied to dry skin – it’s also fun! Massage it directly on to your skin and wait for about 10 minutes before washing it off with lukewarm water. Repeat this regularly and you will find your skin glowing naturally. It also attracts moisture so is great for keeping your skin moisturised. Alternatively, why not try our Queen B, Btox or Honey I Shrunk My Wrinkles. They all contain this amazing natural ingredient in unique formulas along with other wonderful, natural ingredients. Thank you Mother Nature!

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is yet another type of natural oil that can really nourish and keep your skin hydrated during winter. Coconut Oil is actually a wax and is solid at room temperature, but massaging some between your fingers soon softens it. Alternatively, you could use Fractionated Coconut Oil that is already liquid at room temperature. Every night apply some coconut oil to your face, elbows, knees and hands – wherever you feel dryness – and leave it on overnight. Your skin will be soft and glowing in the morning. Make sure you follow this routine every day or every other day depending on how dry and red your skin is. Alternatively, try one of our face, hand and body creams. They all contain coconut oil – it is that good!

Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera has thick leaves that store a gel-like substance that is an excellent moisturiser. It also reduces inflammation (redness) and is also packed full of vitamins, essential fatty acids, proteins, amino acids, lecithin and antioxidants which are essential for skin regeneration and maintaining youthful skin. It also contains Salicylic Acid which causes the uppermost layer of skin to swell, soften and then peel, removing dead skin cells (such as dry skin). Revealing softer, smoother skin. If you want to really get back to basics, all you need to do is to cut one leaf from your plant and squeeze all the gel out of it. Apply it to your face or wherever there is dryness and let it dry for a few minutes. Then wash it off with plain water. It moisturises your skin without giving it a greasy feel. Alternatively, you could try one of our Natural Anti-Wrinkle Day Creams or Night Creams. They all contain Aloe Vera. As do our Luxurious Body Creams and Hand Creams.

Yogurt

The itchiness and dryness on your skin can easily be curbed by yogurt. Apply plain yogurt to your skin and leave it to dry for about 10 minutes before washing it off with lukewarm water.
Yogurt contains lactic acid, an Alpha Hydroxy Acid, that dissolves dead skin cells. This gentle exfoliation not only helps to create a natural glow, but works to diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

Apply some to your body and face after taking a shower or having a bath. However just pat yourself dry. That way you will also retain some of the moisture from your shower/bath .
