Keep your skin healthy this winter
Follow these tips and tricks to help your skin survive the winter, and look and feel at its best.
The challenge of maintaining a healthy, moisturized skin continues as temperature drops down, the wind blows up and heaters switch on. Dry air takes away the thin oil layer that leaves moisture in the skin and flares painful and itchy conditions. But you can minimize the risks brought by the cold season with the right skincare habits using the safest chemical-free products. Here are some things you can do to help you battle for healthy skin in the winter season.
USE A GENTLE MOISTURIZER
You need to maintain moisture in your skin especially when the temperature is dropping. Using a chemical-free moisturizer regularly can keep your skin feeling fresh and supple even in the cold of winter. The Revitalizing Face Moisturizer from Yorba Organics is a sure bet for this season. It lightly absorbs into the skin, providing long lasting protection without the greasy feeling. It contains Kigelia fruit extract which aids in the repair of damaged or aging skin. You can also try SIBU SEA Berry THERAPY’s Nourishing Face Cream which contains Sea Buckthorn, Shea Butter, and Meadowfoam, creating a powerful barrier to keep in moisture, protect against toxins, and rejuvenate damaged skin.
Also make sure to lock in moisture in your hands, especially when it tends to get dry easily. When you’re out, it’s ideal to bring a reliable product like Makes 3 Organics’ Organic Ylang Ylang Vanilla Hand Balm.

TAKE A STEAM
Your skin obviously gets less warmth during winter so a good facial steam can prove beneficial for you. This method can open up your pores to remove dirt from deep down as well as exfoliate dead skin and cure acne. Earthwise Beauty’s Selene Facial Steam can do relaxing wonders to your skin. It’s the perfect product for a nice me-time after a day out in the cold.

REMOVE DULLNESS WITH REGULAR EXFOLIATION
Adding exfoliation to your weekly regime will remove the dullness and flaking caused by dead skin cells. This also helps to improve skin tone and softness, revealing beautiful glowing skin. Our top pick is Sula NYC’s Exfoliating Olive Soap. Made simply of olive paste, olive and vegetable oil and water, this miracle soap is an all-natural exfoliator for the face and body. You can also go for the Exfoliating Clay Wash from Yorba Organics or the Exfoliating Face & Body Scrub from SIBU SEA Berry THERAPY, both made with natural ingredients that gently exfoliate your skin to perfection.

REPLENISH YOUR SKIN OVERNIGHT
During the night, your skin is at its most susceptible to the efficacy of skincare, so it’s a great opportunity to load it with nourishment. You can apply mask to your skin and leave it on for a period of time. You can try Earthwise Beauty’s Blackstrap Molasses Face Mask which offers noticeable firming, brightening, pore-cleansing, and anti-aging effects right from the first application, as it is loaded with all-natural, detoxifying Hungarian Moor mud and Moroccan lava clay. Care for an alternative? You can also check out Gemstone Organics’ Mineral Masque, made with healing powers of negative ions, to remove free radicals and draw toxins from your skin.
