Cold wind, dropping temperatures and dry air in our homes causes changes in your skin. Especially when you have dry or sensitive skin, your skin can use some extra attention during these cold months. In this guide, we share five of our top tips to keep your skin healthy and glowing during Autumn and Winter.
#1 Create a winterproof skincare routine
Our previous blog discussed the importance of building a basic skin care routine. The colder seasons ask for some small tweaks in your skincare routine. During this time of the year, your skin can use some extra nourishment and attention. Our Face Balm [link to product] repairs nourishes, restores, and soothes the skin. Perfect during periods when your skin needs that little bit extra.
#2 A healthy and varied diet
I mean, who doesn’t want that healthy summer glow all year round? Believe it or not, it’s possible! If you regularly eat orange vegetables like carrots, sweet potatoes, and pumpkin, you can keep that healthy glow even in Winter. Vitamin C-rich fruits and vegetables also promote the production of collagen and make your skin look plumper and healthier.
One of the most important tips for healthy skin is to keep it hydrated. Not only your face, but also your hands, lips, and the rest of your body can use some extra hydration during this time of the year. Take care and treat your skin with our vegan Body Balm made from 100% ingredients of natural origin. Suitable for even the most sensitive skin, such as those with eczema or psoriasis.
#4 Use SPF
Even though the sun is less visible during these seasons, the use of an SPF remains a must. Although there is less UVB radiation, the UVA levels are still strong enough to cause skin aging. Therefore, use an SPF product with UVA and UVB factors throughout the year.
A big misconception is that exfoliating in winter causes more dry spots, but actually the opposite is true. By exfoliating you help your skin get rid of old skin cells faster and thus prevent impurities. Preferably choose a mild exfoliant such as an oil-to-milk cleansing gel from Squalan.
