We’ve packed away the shorts and bikinis and made way in our closets for all our cozy sweaters.
We’ve swapped our icy frappucinos for steamy lattes and we may or may not have already started watching Christmas movies, we won’t judge if you don’t!
Yep, the cooler weather has officially arrived and while we love any excuse to cozy up in all our layers, our skin doesn’t exactly feel the same way.
This time of year can be a double threat to your skin because outside you are exposed to dry, harsh temps and indoors, even though it’s a lot warmer, the artificial heating can take the same toll on your skin as the outdoor air!
This dry air saps the moisture out of your skin and causes all sorts of issues from dry, itchy skin to skin that is more sensitive and at a higher risk for aging.
But don’t stress too much, because if you are reading this then you are about to find out how to combat dry temperatures so you can enjoy dewy, glowing skin no matter how low the temperatures go!
So brew up a cup of your favorite drink, get warm and dig in to our latest read!
Watch the sugar
It’s valid to wonder what on earth this tip has to do with your skin, but hear us out.
Everything you put into your body has an effect on your skin, good or bad.
Sugar is one of the top culprits when it comes to aging your skin, because sugar actually draws water out of your skin cells and even breaks down collagen; a structural protein essential for youthful, plump skin.
It’s tricky to stay away from sugar thanks to all those delicious holiday drinks but why not have some fun and whip up healthier versions at home, like this mouth-watering paleo peppermint hot chocolate!
Don’t skip the moisturizer
This time of year is especially important for amping up the moisture in your skin so don’t even think about leaving the house without your layer of protection!
We have two beautiful moisturizers, infused with skin loving ingredients to help keep your skin protected against the elements all day and night long!
Choose LUXE to feel luxurious and expensive or FRESH to feel youthful and fresh, the choice is yours!
Invest in a humidifier
A humidifier blows steam into the air to help replace lost moisture and it really can make all the difference if dry, itchy skin is taking over!
Try adding in some essential oils to enjoy aromatherapy benefits and to help boost your mood.
Orange to lift your spirits, lavender to soothe and Eucalyptus to refresh and prevent pesky colds and flu.
These three tips will go a long way in helping you to manage any cold weather skin issues you may encounter. We would love to hear how these work for you or if you have any more of your own to share, feel free to leave them in the comments!
