We all know that winter can damage our skin, but while we are busy nourishing, strengthening and protecting our faces, it is important not to forget our bodies.
For those who suffer from sensitive skin, especially cool temperatures, unrestrained central heating and irritating substances can mean much more unpleasant skin at this time of year.
Here are my top five tips for staying physically beautiful this season:
1. Avoid overheating of the skin
While longing for a long hot bath, avoid washing yourself in excessively hot water as this will cause the lipids in the skin to break down. Lipids are the essential fats that are responsible for the skin storing moisture. Without it, the skin becomes dry, itchy and irritable.
2nd step-up hydration
Hydration is the key to soft, calm and smooth skin. Remember that hydration can only be achieved with a cream. Massage comfrey and calendula soothing body cream into your skin after every shower.
Its powerful anti-inflammatory properties help to heal and soothe sensitive skin. They also make this the perfect lotion for shaved (or unshaven) legs!
3. Brushing dry skin
By stimulating blood circulation and regeneration, brushing dry skin helps keep your healthiest, lightest, and freshest skin cells on the surface. Move to the heart in a circular motion for the best effect. Avoid hard or scratchy bristles if your skin is particularly sensitive.
4th deep condition
Combine the moisture of a cream with the deep conditioning effects of an oil for the ultimate Body Beautiful skin treatment.
Our rose hip organic regeneration oil is rich in essential omega-3, 6, 7 and 9 fatty acids and antioxidative carotenoids. It repairs and regenerates the skin and stores moisture for a long-lasting, silky smooth finish. Try adding a few drops to your body cream
