BEAT DRY SKIN THIS WINTER
Frigid temperatures combined with dry air and moisture sucking indoor heating can wreak havoc on our skin. Don’t worry we have some skin saving products and helpful tips to keep your skin, hands and lips soft and moisturized during these harsh winter months.
What Causes Dry Skin?
Dry skin is lack of moisture. During the winter our skin produces the same amount of oil but often lacks the moisture it needs, which can cause dry patches, cracked, scaly and red skin.
Fragrance has a tendency to irritate dry skin or make it even worse. Avoid deodorants and body lotions that are highly fragrant, and choose natural fragrance-free products high in healing oils, extracts or herbal infusions.

Hard water is tap water that contains high concentrations of minerals like magnesium, lead, and zinc. These minerals can leave a film on skin that causes dryness. Taking long hot showers, and shaving with fragrant skin drying shaving creams can also dry skin.

Using the Wrong Moisturizer
If your skin is usually on the drier side, you make think slathering on a moisturizing lotion is the answer but lotions & creams are water-based with low oil content, so they are not well-absorbed by the skin and quickly evaporates. Switch to facial oils & serums, which penetrate deeper into the skin to restore moisture.
