Winter Skincare Routine

Winter Skincare Routine

Skin needs special care in the Winter, here are my top tips:

1. Use a 100% natural serum in the morning, this will penetrate the deeper layers of skin, nourishing and giving environmental and elemental protection, while serving as an excellent make up primer.

2. At night use a rich moisturising cream that uses pure plant extracts to nourish but that allows your skin to breathe, if the skin cannot breathe it cannot repair and regenerate while you sleep.

3. If you experience dry or cracked lips, use a 100% natural lip balm made from only plant fats and beeswax to nourish and provide a protective waterproof layer, to prevent further moisture loss. To exfoliate your lips and remove dead cells, take a soft toothbrush add your favourite lip balm and rotate the brush over your lips until all the dead skin is removed, revealing plumped, hydrated lips. Licking your lips will only make them drier and sorer.

4. Avoid products that contain any form of alcohol in them, including ‘alcohol denat’. Alcohol is extremely drying to the skin, stripping its natural sebum and interfering with the acidic balance of the acid mantle. Avoid any products with Sodium Lauryl Sulfate – most commonly found in wash off products like body washes and shampoos, this chemical ravages the skin, particularly the scalp causing inflammation and irritation.
