Even the most dedicated among natural skincare gurus often dread the winter months. Dry air, warm temperatures and a lack of vitamin D, can all lead to unique seasonal issues for all types of skin. But keeping your skin happy and healthy through the long winter months doesn’t have to be an uphill battle. At BeauSynergy, their clients are treated with a diverse variety of skincare needs and have the experience necessary to address them. Follow these Winter tips for smooth and nourished natural skin all year round:
The winter number one natural skincare technique that you need to know is, to be sure you’re getting lots and lots of water. Cold air in winter can dry the skin out, leading to issues like peeling, cracking, or bleeding. Making sure you drink enough water throughout the day is one way to keep these issues at bay. Another great natural technique for hydration, if you find yourself having winter dry skin issues, is using a humidifier in your home .
Lock In Moisture With Organic Oils
Staying hydrated is one key factor to prevent winter skin issues related to dryness. Another strategy is, of course, moisturizing. If you need winter moisturization solutions that are all-natural, then natural plant oils are a great place to start. Coconut oil, sunflower oil, and avocado oil are all great all-natural oil bases to consider as part of your organic skin-care routine.
Use Gentle Exfoliants
If you are prone to developing dry or rough skin during the winter, using an exfoliant can help you to smooth off excess dry skin to leave your skin consistent and soft. However, over-exfoliating is a real risk, especially in the winter time. When you exfoliate too often or use chemical exfoliants that are too harsh, your skin is at a greater risk of damages like peeling and bleeding. Instead, look for gentle exfoliants made with natural bases like oatmeal, sea-salt, or organic sugars. Use these exfoliants sparingly about once a week, to maximize their benefits without damaging your skin.
Light Up Your Skin
While of course going into direct sunlight without sun-screen is a no-no, light exposure with the right protections is actually very good for maintaining healthy skin. Sunlight contains crucial vitamin D and even antibacterial properties, that can help create strong and radiant skin. In the winter months, however, when the days are growing shorter, it can be more difficult to get the light our bodies crave. So there is a need to get outdoors at for at least 20 minutes per day, even when it is cloudy. However, always remember to use the correct SPF (minimum 30), such as the award winning, skin comforting, paraben free, natural Heliocare.
If you’re experiencing dull or unhealthy looking winter skin, you might want to consider solutions such as LED light-therapy, which creates bouncy and hydrated skin through the power of light. At BeauSynergy they are committed to providing you with the benefits of Dermalux natural light even in the darker months.
Know Your Needs for Natural Skin Care
Remember, since everyone’s skin is different, there is no one-size-fits all approach to winter skin care. That’s why it’s important to work with professionals to identify your individual skin type and skin needs to find specific solutions that will work for you. BeauSynergy always happy to offer customizable and bespoke skincare and facial services. By working with one of their experts, you can find an individualized all-natural skincare solution that is just right for you.
