Are you prepared for the colder weather ahead? If you're worried about the harsh climate and dry indoor air wreaking havoc on your delicate skin, then we have winter skin care tips just for you! So you are prepared for caring for your skin in the cooler months ❄️
Winter is a season where your skin needs a little extra TLC because the conditions are rather extreme for our tender protective barrier. The cold air, whipping winds, sun reflecting off snow, and low humidity can steal moisture from your skin every second of every day. And once dryness starts, your skin can more easily crack and bleed, leaving it feeling dry, flaky, and itchy.
But don't worry! With a little extra time and effort, you can keep your skin healthy, moisturised, and looking good all season long. Here are some tips to help you prevent that uncomfortable and unsightly result, and keep your skin healthy and happy through the winter months.
Cooler weather means drier air, which can cause your skin to become dry and flaky. To combat this, use a moisturiser that is appropriate for your skin type and apply it regularly, especially after bathing or washing your face.
Like our Kakadu Plum Hydrating Facial Cream which contains shea butter, jojoba oil & glycerin which help keep your skin hydrated.
For extra protection & nourishment you can apply a facial oil like our Renewal Oil Elixir over the top of your face cream morning & night.
And do not forget your body! Lather your skin with a natural hydrating lotion like our Kakadu Plum Body Lotion to avoid dry, flaky skin.
Use a gentle cream cleanser
Harsh soaps and cleansers can strip your skin of its natural oils, leaving it dry and irritated. Use a gentle cleanser that is formulated for your skin type to avoid this.
Our Snowflower cream cleanser leaves your face feeling fresh and clean whilst leaving your skin nourished and well hydrated.
Protect your skin from the sun
Just because the weather is cooler doesn't mean that you can skip the sunscreen. The sun's rays can still be damaging, even on cloudy days. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30, and reapply it every two hours if you're spending time outside.
Avoid hot showers
As tempting as a hot shower may be on a chilly day, it can actually be drying to your skin. Stick to lukewarm water and limit your shower time to no more than 10 minutes.
Consider using a humidifier
Heated indoor air can be very dry, which can also dry out your skin. Use a humidifier to add moisture to the air and keep your skin hydrated.
Drinking plenty of water is important for your overall health, but it can also help keep your skin hydrated from the inside out. Aim for at least eight glasses of water a day
Protect your skin
Wear warm clothing to protect your skin from the cold and from drying winds.
Avoid harsh products
Avoid using products that contain alcohol, fragrances, or other harsh chemicals that can irritate your skin. Look for gentle, fragrance-free products instead.
