How to maintain beautiful skin through winter
Date Posted:16 April 2017
It seems as through winter has well and truly arrived. The days are shorter, the mornings are colder and you may be starting to notice that your skin is feeling dryer (not to mention the fading of your beautiful summer glow). But its not all bad news, winter means cozy night in, blankets, slippers and hot chocolate! And there is a way you can keep your summer glow and radiant skin all year round.
To maintain luscious skin, step up your organic hand and body lotion to something with a little more moisture. Cold weather tends to dry out the skin, so ensuring you compensate with good natural face moisturizer is also paramount. We recommend using a natural body cream with hydrating oils such as coconut, argan, rosehips and vitamin E. For sensitive skin, Acure Seriously Soothing 24 Hr Moisture Body Lotion is an absolute steal when it comes to bang for you buck. With so much goodness in this single tube, Acure Organics is one of our absolute favourites. For eczema prone or very dry skin, Eco by Sonya Coconut Body Milk is an absolute must. If you don’t believe us, simply check out the before and after pictures on the product page. This highly nourishing lotion is incredible for dry, red and angry skin. Winter months usually exacerbate these kinds of skin conditions; so a little coconut milk over winter will do you good.
Our top 5 favourite winter essentials are:
- Eco by Sonya Coconut Body Milk
- Ere Perez Papaya Sos Marmalade
- Antipodes Joyful Hand & Body Cream
- Noosa Basics Cocoa Butter Ultra Rich Cream
- Vanessa Megan Peruvian Flower Body Cream
Keep your healthy glow with natural self-tanners. Eco Tan’s Winter Skin maintains a subtle colour, without looking unnaturally tanned. There is nothing worse than an obviously fake dark bronze tan in the middle of winter. Using a natural gradual tanning moisturizer keeps you looking healthy, but without the obvious “I’ve just had a spray tan” look.
Here are our top favourites:
- Eco Tan Winter Skin
- Eco Tan Invisible Tan
- Eco Tan Face Tan Water
- Eco Tan Cacao Firming Mousse
- Aussie Bronze Vegan & DHA Free Instant Tan
Use the cold winter days and nights to get some rest! Winter is naturally a time of hibernation. A time where both animals and plants take a break, in preparation for spring. In our fast paced world, it is all too easy to continue to carry on all year round. We push ourselves to the limit, stay up late with artificial lights and continue to move at the same pace as always. This puts stress on the body and leads to burn out. Use the early sunset to wind down for the evening and have an early night. Use your weekends for rest and relaxation and switch your evening wine for an antioxidant rich herbal tea.
