4 Ways to Keep Your Dry Skin Moisturized in the Winter
With winter right around the corner, there’s never been a better time to start taking proper care of your skin. Winter can be brutal on the skin. From windy days, to dry frosty days, there’s no escaping the effects that winter weather has on your skin, but there are some things you can do at home to help keep your skin from drying out this winter season.
Hydrate With Water
Water, water, water! We can’t stress enough how important water is when it comes to keeping your dry skin hydrated this winter. Water not only keeps your body hydrated but also keeps your skin healthy and glowing as well. Drinking enough water every day can help prevent future wrinkles and aging that can be caused by being dehydrated. It is recommended to always make sure to drink at least six glasses of water a day to maintain healthy, hydrated skin throughout the year, and especially during the winter.
Avoid Hot Showers
Speaking of water, hot water can be very drying to your skin. And yes - we know taking hot showers during the winter is one of life’s greatest pleasures, but that steamy, hot water is actually damaging your skin. If you’re one of those people that love to take hot showers twice a day, your skin is probably begging you to stop. Hot water not only dries out your skin, but can also irritate your skin as well. Hot water can cause significant damage to the keratin cells in your skin. By damaging these cells, your skin will have a harder time locking in moisture.
One of the most important things you should be doing for your skin is using a moisturizer in both the AM and PM. Whether you are going to be applying makeup, sunscreen, or going out bare-faced, our Sacha Inchi Face Cream is the best moisturizer for you to apply. Our face cream is effective in delivering a non-greasy, hydrating finish to your skin. Loaded with antioxidants and Omega acids, it also helps the skin retain moisture for longer. Perfect for those dry, cold winter days! For even better hydration and moisture, consider using our Superfruit Facial Oil along with your face cream both night and day.
So, you’re avoiding hot showers, you’re moisturizing, now what? Well, in order to keep your skin in line this winter, one thing you’ll want to do is keep up on the maintenance of your skin’s needs. One way of doing this is by using a hydration mask once a week. These can be bought, or you can make them at home with some DIY recipes online. Make sure to stay far away from peel-off masks, as these can actually cause harm or irritation to your skin. One type of mask we recommend for dry skin is a White Brazilian Clay Mask. These mild masks are very similar to kaolin and are collected straight from the banks of the Amazon forest. They are filled with different minerals that help cleanse and soften the skin. But the benefits don’t even stop there. These masks also have major hydration power. They’re just the perfect hydration masks for winter!
In all, winter is a beautiful time of year! It’s filled with snow, hot chocolate, and presents. And now - you don’t have to let your dry skin hold you back this winter season. Take our tips and let your skin thrive this winter!
