Amp up Your Skincare to Combat Winter Dryness

Thursday Nov 18, 2010

Brrr! Aahhh! It is that time of year when we think of hot chocolate and delightfully warm fireplaces or outdoor fire pits. We say – “gosh where did the Fall go? It’s Winter now!”.  We seem to be surprised by it, but in reality we knew it was coming. Did you stock up on a thicker moisturizer for the winter? No? Not yet, huh. Your skin is at it’s most dry state right now. It is probably trying hard to keep things ok – but it is a little sensitive.  Ah, the “I have sensitive skin” comment is pretty common and it usually stems from the fact that your skin is screaming for moisture and it is very unhappy.

What to do? First, if you haven’t purchased an exfoliant - now is the time. You need to slough off that layer of dry skin that has built up to protect your skin from the wind and cold.  It is trying very hard to keep the skin from total unhappiness! Using one of our exfoliants free of parabens, chemicals, dyes and fragrances is a good idea as your skin is now “sensitive, i.e. mad” and will really have a reaction to anything that has bad ingredients in it. Go natural. Go chemical free!

After exfoliation we usually recommend a moisturizing masque (like our Spirulina Masque) to help infuse needed moisture. But if your skin is really not happy – just a thick application of your winter moisturizer is perfect.  We recommend the Tamanu Nut Masque due to it’s great combination of healing properties (Tamanu Nut & CoQ10) and heavy moisture content. When you apply it – go thick. The first time after you exfoliate very dry skin and then apply moisturizer your face is going to drink it up like mad! Yes! Over-apply. Wait 10 minutes, then touch your face – now where did all that product go? And wow! My skin is so soft and dewy and feels much better. It’s amazing what a difference a great all natural moisturizer has on your skin. It’s ok to put a little bit more on – your skin will thank you with even skin tone and softness for sure!

Another benefit you get from this combination of exfoliating and moisturizing with your winter moisturizer is that your makeup will apply smoother – more evenly. Your skin tone will not be so blotchy with red patches from the over dryness. So there is less corrective make-up application, helping your skin to breathe easier.

So if you haven’t made the switch to your winter moisturizer now is the time! Doubling up on the light summer product will not help – the cold temperature and wind will go right through a light moisturizer and leave your skin unprotected. Also, using an over the counter moisturizer full of fillers and chemicals also contains a lot of alcohol.  Avoid products containing alcohol on your face. This creates such a dry state that it makes it hard for you to smile! Amp up the moisturizer and be sure to exofliate at least once every two weeks to rid your skin of the dry, flaky bits. Smooth, soft and dewy – that’s our goal for your all-natural skincare here at Renaud Naturals!
