The weather has been pretty confusing lately. Some days we wake up to frigid temperatures and piles of shoveling to do, on other days we wake up to a sunny days in the positives, and we are in January! Hey, we aren’t going to complain, but don’t be fooled - from the sounds of it, winter is going to stick around for a while!  

While winter contains its share of lovely things, like endless cups of cocoa and building snowmen with the kiddos, it is also, unfortunately, the time of year where your skin just seems to dry out completely. This leaves you feeling itchy and leaves your skin vulnerable to the signs of aging. Don’t despair! These 3 simple skin care tips will have you feeling like yourself in no time, so that you can enjoy all the great things winter brings!

 

Smooth Your Skin With Exfoliation

Exfoliation is key to instantly relieving itchy, dry skin by sloughing off dead skin cells, revealing silky soft and radiant skin that will itch no more!

Our body’s are constantly producing new skin cells, most of which the body naturally sheds, however, when cell turnover happens faster than the body can shed the old cells, it causes a buildup which can clog pores, leaving skin looking dull and flaky, and feeling dry and uncomfortable

By exfoliating at least once a week, you will ensure that your skin stays radiant and beautifully soft. Try our Nourishing Carrot Scrub by 100% Pure. Ingredients including cucumber juice, carrot seed oil and aloe will hydrate and soothe your skin and leave it simply glowing!

Amp Up The Moisture

This is the season to switch out your lightweight moisturizer for more intense hydration. A richer moisturizer will not only help your skin to feel and look better, it will also help to protect against the elements, like that dry, bitter wind

Wild Hill's Wild Rose and Neroli Night Cream includes active ingredients and organic plant oils to leave your skin deeply hydrated. The gorgeous festive scent of Neroli and Frankincense fights free radicals all day and night for an ageless complexion.

Add In A Serum For Serious Hydration

If you have never tried a serum before then now is your perfect chance. Serums contain 10 times the active ingredients of a moisturizer, and because their molecules are smaller, they are able to penetrate deeper into the pores.

This, however, does not mean you should ditch your moisturizer! In fact, serums and moisturizers work really well together to provide your skin with the utmost nourishment and hydration. Serums are usually followed by your moisturizer to help lock in the active ingredient

Our Facial Serum by Fig and Yarrow contains a beautiful mix of precious oils to hydrate your skin, balance sebum levels and prevent and treat fine lines and wrinkles. You will never go back once you have experienced the excellent benefits of a serum, we promise!
