Winter Skin Care Tips

The cold outside temperatures can chap your skin, and the indoor heat can dry out your skin. This is a damaging combination; so, it’s important to take extra care of your skin this winter.

A few things you can do to keep your skin healthy:

  1. Use a humidifier because it puts moisture into the air.

  2. Avoid overly hot baths and showers, because they dry out the skin.

  3. Exfoliate once every few weeks with a salt glow or sugar scrub; see recipe below.

  4. Moisturize with a rich, natural, cream-based moisturizer.

  5. Stay hydrated.

Lavender Coconut Salt Glow

Exfoliation removes the build-up of dead skin cells from the epidermis, which helps with the absorption of moisture. To make this scrub, in a small bowl add a ¼ cup of finely grained salt, 3 tbls. Coconut Oil, 1 tsp. dried, grounded Lavender (grind in your coffee grinder reserved for herbs), and 2 drops of Lavender Essential Oil, and blend everything together. Feel free to add more Coconut Oil if you find it’s not moist enough.

To use the body scrub:

  1. Step into the shower and rinse off.

  2. Step back from the shower head or turn it off for a moment.

  3. Scoop a small amount of body scrub into your hand.

  4. Gently massage the body scrub into your skin (but not your face).

  5. Continue to apply small amounts of the scrub to other parts of your body, paying extra attention to rough areas such as the elbows, knees or bottoms of the feet.

  6. The back is a difficult area to reach, so try a shower sponge or loofah on a stick; apply scrub to it and then gently scrub your back.

  7. Step back under the shower head and rinse off. When finished with your shower, pat your skin dry.

  8. You may apply a rich moisturizer or body oil, if you need one.

Salt is too course for the delicate skin of your face and neck, so if you’d like to exfoliate that area, simply replace the salt with ground oatmeal and/or ground nuts, and add to the other ingredients listed above.
