Essential Stuff Winter Products
The winter season is approaching and for many people, the cold dry winter climates may bring uncomfortable and unwanted skin conditions such as flaking skin, skin allergies, eczema and chapped hands. With a few simple tricks, you can keep skin silky smooth till spring.
Marie Otty, founder of Essential Stuff, says that low temperatures, low humidity and strong, harsh winds suck away the moisture in our bodies and deplete our skin of its natural lipid layer which keeps the skin from drying out. "More attention is required during the winter months to help you achieve optimal soft skin suppleness," she says.
Marie's shares her five simple tips for a new winter regime: Give your hands extra love
The skin on our hands are extremely thin, which means they already have a limited amount of moisture. Apply hand cream frequently, especially after washing your hands, and avoid cotton gloves, which absorb moisture and stay wet. Hydrate skin while it's damp
Apply a rich body butter immediately after taking a shower to help lock-in moisture. Consider products with natural ingredients like macadamia, rosehip and pomegranate. These that will soften the skin, giving it refreshing and healthy glow. Avoid very hot water
It may feel good, but never shower, bathe or wash your face with extremely hot water. It can not only break the capillaries in the face, but also break down the lipid barriers in the skin, which will lead to a loss of moisture. Cleanse the skin in warm water with a rich and gentle body wash enriched with Aloe Vera and pomegranate will hydrate the skin and protect against ageing. Don't neglect the feet
Dry cracked heels can be painful and unattractive - and only get worse in winter. Unfortunately regular creams won't penetrate the dry, dead, thick skin on our heels so soak the feet first then apply a dedicated foot balm with strong antioxidants, vitamins and minerals to nourish the skin. Keep this routine for 2-3 days and the benefits will be noticed in no time. Apply sunscreen
Just because it's cold out doesn't mean the sun isn't strong. Apply an SPF 15-30 to the face and hands about 30 minutes before going outside. Don't forget to reapply if outside for long periods of time.Pomegranate and Lemon Fusion Body Wash 250ml
