8 Winter Tips
Along with the long winter nights come cold winds. And warm heating. Temperature extremes can wreak havoc on your skin: hello, rough knuckles, chapped lips and flaky face patches. And if you’re prone to eczema, you might expect a flare-up around now.
1.Moisturise more with Beyond Organic Moisturising Day Cream
If you suffer from dry skin in winter, take steps to prevent this before it sets in.
Applying creams when your skin is damp helps to lock in moisture and keep your skin soft and supple.
If your skin is inflamed and red, doctors recommend water-based emollient E-Natural Emollient Cream because the evaporation of the water can help to cool your skin too. They can leave your skin feeling greasy though, so you may prefer to save these for bedtime to avoid leaving greasy handprints on everything you touch.
2.Humidify the air
It’s not just icy air outside that irritates our skin, it's the way we crank up the indoor heat in response. But as well as warming the air, radiators and heaters dry it out. And this can lead to skin dryness and irritation.
So, try a room humidifier. You don’t need to invest in an expensive product, just place a bowl of water on or close to your radiators. The evaporating water will combat skin dryness and may also make a dry nose, throat or eyes more comfortable too.
- Don’t forget Naturally Fresh Crystal Deodorant.
Everyone sweats. It's a natural and necessary function of your body, but you might not enjoy the odour that can accompany it. Despite doubts about its effectiveness, natural deodorant works well to combat odour without disrupting those natural functions. The plant-based ingredients in natural deodorants can leave you feeling confident that you're both odour-free and secure about what you're putting on your skin.
- Switch your handwash to Organic Hand Wash
We’re all washing our hands more often these days, and for longer. Combined with colder weather, this is a recipe for rough, dry hands and eczema flare-ups.
So think about switching your usual hand wash to something less harsh over winter. Dermatologists recommend washing with Organic and Natural hand wash. Go for
Beyond Anti-Bacterial Hand Wash to reduce the risk of irritation.
- Add Relaxing Bath & Massage oil in the tub
Bath time is an opportunity to quench thirsty skin all over. Be generous with the bath oil, and avoid making the water too hot as this may irritate inflamed skin.
Look for bath oils formulated for dry or eczema-prone skin.
- Go easy on the Christmas spirit(s)
Yes, it’s the time of year to raise a glass and celebrate. And this year, we’re especially looking forward to enjoying a Christmas party or two. Pamper your self with Beyond Christmas Hamper for a perfect skincare routine with a free gift basket and Christmas tag.
- Stop licking your lips
When it's cold and windy, and with dry indoor air, it can be tempting to lick your lips to keep them moist. But this has the opposite effect. Exposure to saliva damages the normal skin barrier function, causing inflammation. This makes you want to lick your lips more - and you can end up in a vicious circle, with sore, red skin on and around your mouth.
It’s best to prevent lip-chapping in the first place. Use Beyond Organic Vanilla Lip Balm with Shea butter, Macadamia Nut Oil and Vitamin E to soothe, calm and moisturise dry, chapped lips.
- Massage your skin for better looks
It`s time to relieve facial tension, reduce eye puffiness, relaxation and improving lymphatic flow throughout the body. Jade face rollers from Gua Sha Increase skin elasticity, stimulate lymph drainage, which restore substantial collagen. The higher the collagen level, the better the skin elasticity will be. Skin elasticity reverses your aging process and gives you a more youthful appearance.
