During winter, our travels often
take us from the cold, wet and wind into warm offices and homes – or balmy
islands if we’re lucky. The temperature extremes, exacerbated by the fact
we typically drink less water and eat less water based foods, can take a toll
on our skin - resulting in it becoming dry and dehydrated. This is why it
is especially important to focus on good skin care during the winter months
especially for those who have sensitive skin.
The skin care experts at Living Nature have the perfect products and advice
to nurture winter skin. Skin Care Therapist and Consultant, Amanda Cotton
recommends Living Nature’s gentle, natural products to help protect skin
and boost hydration, plus dedicated care for very sensitive skin that can
feel even more stressed during the colder weather.
To restore and protect skin from winter’s damage, Amanda says, it’s
important to follow a good daily basic skincare routine with a gentle
cleanser, such as Living Nature’s Vitalising Cleanser,
a non-drying toner, such as Living Nature’s Extra Hydrating Toning Gel,
a nourishing day cream plus nurturing products like Living Nature’s Lip Hydrator and Firming Flax Serumand
a nourishing mask once or twice a week.
Equally as important is exfoliation, to slough away dead/dry surface skin
that leaves skin feeling tight and dull. Living Nature’s Skin Revive Exfoliant,
provides a gentle, yet effective way to help, soften the skin and prepare
it to receive the benefits of the other products. As well as what you put
on your skin, don’t forget all-important internal hydration with plenty of
water and not too many caffeinated or alcoholic drinks, all of which have a
drying effect on the body and skin.
