Winter Beauty Guide

You may find that your skin and hair need a bit of extra TLC during the winter.  The chilly air and winds combined with indoor heating can leave you with rough, flaky skin, and dry, lacklustre locks. Try these nourishing natural beauty rituals, products and ingredients to winter-proof your skin and hair…

Skin

Exposure to cold weather can disrupt the skin’s natural barrier function, and it’s important to support, protect and repair your skin during the chillier months. If you’re prone to dry skin, you may find that this is exacerbated during winter, when the harsh weather can deplete the levels of natural moisturising factor (NMF) in your skin. 

It’s important to exfoliate regularly in the winter to avoid a build-up of dead skin cells. Giving yourself a good scrub with a gentle, natural product two to three times a week can trigger a natural skin repair process, help build collagen and avoid dryness, flakiness and itchiness.

Most people benefit from switching to a more moisture-rich skincare regime during winter. Try a deeply hydrating facial moisturiser and body cream after washing each day to help lock in moisture. Add a nourishing facial and body oil and face mask two to three times a week for a boosting and repairing treatment.

HAIR

Your hair needs extra nourishment in the winter months, too. Cold, windy and damp weather can wreak hair havoc, leaving it windswept, dull and frizzy. Add indoor heating to the mix, and your hair could be left dry, brittle and flat. 

Tone down your usual washing routine, and avoid shampooing your hair too often.  Apply a hairoilthree times a week to soothe dull, brittle ends, and a hair and scalp mask once a week as an intensive rehydrating treatment.
