Hi everyone, It is Audra and I am here today to give you 5 tips to winterize your skin! If you do not already know Christian and I are from Texas, but we have lived in Wisconsin for the last six years, and boy did we get a rude awakening to what real winter skin can feel like! Don't get me wrong, the first snow falls are magical, but these constant below freezing and negative temps have our skin craving all the moisture and hydration!
Who's ready for our top tips that will help you endure winter with soft and silky skin?
Tip 1: Run A Cool Mist Humidifier In Your Bedroom
Cold air drys out skin and heaters blow hot air that can result in dry, itchy and flaky skin. Running a cool mist humidifier in your bedroom will not only add moisture to the air but your skin, lips, hair, and eyes while you sleep!
Tip 2: Hydrate From The Inside Out
It is so cold outside you may find yourself not being as thirsty as you would be in the summer hot months, but you can still be dehydrated in the winter just as you as can be in summer. Make sure you are hydrating yourself properly and getting the intake of fluids your body needs. Try a warm cup of water with lemon or peppermint tea to keep you hydrated and warm!
Tip 3: Exfoliate
Gently exfoliating one to two times a week will help you remove dead, flaky skin cells and leave your skin feeling silky and smooth again! Below is a few of our best selling exfoliating products at Poppy Avenue Clean Beauty Bar!
This organic face polish is powered by crystallized honey that dissolves seamlessly during exfoliation to nourish the skin with its natural healing and hydrating properties. Finely-milled brown rice gently buff away dead skin cells, while a cocktail of organic oils soften and moisturize. Use once or twice a week to reveal a flawlessly smooth, supple, and refined complexion.
This head-to-toe mineral polish uses the ancient cleansing powers of wild-harvested yucca root which is naturally rich in saponins (natural surfactant and emulsifier) to gently sweep away dead skin cells. It gently exfoliates, tightens, and tones while maintaining the skin's delicate pH balance.
This dual-action exfoliant delivers results that are visibly better than either method alone. Nutrient-dense plant oils and raw honey combine to restore moisture and help clear skin issues, while rich herbal antioxidant and anti-inflammatory synergies assist to calm, regenerate, and help reset the skins natural healing ability and support healthy skin function.
Tip 4: Overnight Treatments
Overnight treatments are an amazing choice of skin care to treat winter skin because the product is working while you are sleeping. Additionally, when we are at rest our bodies are also healing! Our brain can focus on other parts of our body that need attention. A consistent good night rest contributes to the body's ability to restore tissue, bone, and muscle.
