Top 8 Tips for Winter Skin
Moisturising with Argan Oil
Moisturise more. Before setting out into the elements and last thing at night.This isn’t going to make your skin oily but will support it without blocking natural sebum production.
Extra Vitamins for Skin
Amino Acids ( Vitamin B ), Vitamin C & D are good for skin renewal and condition. Use Zinc supplements to help prevent spots. Gamma Linoleic Acid is known for its benefits for the clearer skin.
Exfoliating Face Masks
Winter winds stir up dirt and dust. Dead skin cells and dirt build up.In winter a gentle exfoliating face mask can clear pores and brighten the complexion. Try completely natural Moroccan Rhasosul Clay or Calcium Bentonite Clay. Blend a few teaspoons of Clay with mineral water and add a little-powdered sea salt. Next, combine some pure Argan Oil or Cactus Seed Oil. Apply this to the face and leave it for about 10 minutes to dry. Rinse off with cold water and pat dry. Massage a little Argan Oil into the skin after. Don’t’ wash your skin too often or with strong chemicals. This can easily upset the delicate balance of natural oils in your skin.
Drink More Water
Winter environments lead to dehydration. Homes and workplaces are heated and cold weather dries the skin. Make sure to replace lost fluids by regularly drinking water throughout the day.
Avoid Harsh Chemical Soaps and Cosmetics
Most commercial soaps contain sulfates. These make some soaps and shower gels foam up, BUT remove your sebum. If your skin feels tight after a shower, it’s damaged. In this case, soothing Argan Oil to prevent irritation is the best cure.
Boost Your Immune System
Get extra Vitamin A / Beta-carotene into your diet. Food sources include Carrot Juice (fresh), Apricots, Asparagus, Beets, Broccoli & Green Peppers.
