Winter Skin Care

Posted by on

It’s that time of year. The days are shorter and the time it takes to get out of the hot shower is just a second longer. It’s winter. The cold might be an excuse to cover up that epidermis but the chill of winter is the reason to take that extra time and show your skin the love it deserves. 
Avoid those dreaded fish scales, now is the time to start prepping your skin for spring -why heck,  while we’re being optimistic- even summer!
Mum didn't lie. Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise! 
  • Ensure you moisturise all over ( not forgetting those elbows or ankles) straight out of the shower. Moisturising after a steamy shower ensures your product will really penetrate the skin  and your skin can actually benefit from the added hydration. 

    *Keep a hand balm in your bag and use it! keep those hands soft and subtle, you never know who you might meet on the street.

 Long day? Exfoliate! Date night? Exfoliate! Want that lit from within glow? 

  • Exfoliating is just as important as moisturising, if not more. Not only does exfoliation shed those unwanted layers and reveal a smoother you, it actually aids the process of moisturising. Exfoliating will help the creme, lotion or oil deeply penetrate the skin, locking in the skins natural oils and assisting with repair and cell turn over. 

    For best results use your favourite body scrub 2-3 times weekly. 

Don't be afraid of fat ! Fatty acids that is!

  • It’s not a cliche, good skin starts from within.  Drinking plenty of water throughout the day is essential in ensuring our bodies are hydrated, inside and out! Another fun addition to your diet is fatty acids, A diet rich in omega-3 and omega-6 oils can boost your skin's inner hydrating functions”. Include some fish oils in your vitamin cabinet and keep eating those smashed avocados ladies (the house can wait). 
By now, you won't be fearful of anyone seeing your dry knees, your skin will be polished and glowing.  Regardless of the cold you will want to show off that new skin, maybe even your new Kat?
