Winter is a beautiful season, but it can be harsh on your skin. The cold weather, low humidity, and indoor heating can strip your skin of its natural oils, leaving it dry, itchy, and irritated. However, by combining science and tradition, you can keep your skin healthy and glowing during the winter months.
Science has shown that the skin is the body's largest organ, and it plays a crucial role in protecting the body from environmental stressors such as UV radiation, pollution, and extreme temperatures. The skin has a lipid barrier that prevents moisture loss and maintains hydration levels. However, during winters, this barrier can become weak, leading to dry and flaky skin.
To prevent this, it's important to moisturize your skin regularly. Choose a moisturizer that is rich in emollients and humectants, such as glycerin and hyaluronic acid. These ingredients help to trap moisture in the skin, keeping it hydrated and plump. You should also incorporate a facial oil into your routine for hydration, such as our Antioxidant Infused Replenishing Oil, which helps to nourish and repair the skin's lipid barrier as it is made of 100% pure oils that are non-comedogenic (means that it does not clog pores.) It is a silky, luxurious oil that has no filler ingredients- it is made of 7 pure oils that are carefully selected to heal acne, breakouts, hyperpigmentation, and scars.
In addition to moisturizing, it's essential to protect your skin from the harsh winter weather. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30, even on cloudy days. UV rays can penetrate clouds and cause damage to the skin, leading to premature aging and skin cancer.
Now, let's talk about tradition. People have been using natural ingredients to care for their skin for centuries. Traditional remedies, such as green tea, holy basil, moringa and aloe vera, have been shown to have moisturizing and anti-inflammatory properties, making them perfect for winter skincare.
Our Antioxidant Infused Cleansing Gel has six different pure plant extracts- kale, aloe vera, green tea, licorice root, moringa, and Holy Basil. In addition to this green goodness, it also has glycerin and two different vitamins- vitamin E and pro vitamin B5- this makes our cleansing gel the perfect anti-aging, moisturizing, and brightening face wash for all weathers, especially the winter.
The most important thing about a face wash is its pH as a product that is not pH-balanced will damage your skin barrier causing acne, dryness, and hyperpigmentation. Our Antioxidant Infused Cleansing Gel has a perfect pH between 5 and 6 which ensures that your skin barrier is protected, and your skin’s natural oils are still intact.
In conclusion, by combining science and tradition, you can keep your skin healthy and glowing during the winter months. Remember to moisturize regularly, use sunscreen, and incorporate science-backed natural ingredients into your skin care routine. Your skin will thank you!
