WINTER SKIN WOES

Skin a little to dry and flaky this time of year?

Moisturize for the skin to replenish, hydrate and protect. Choose those that contain plant-based moisturizers using natural oils and butters like shea butter and jojoba oil with essential fatty acids (omega 3 fatty acids). These ingredients penetrate the skin far better than man-made emollients made from petroleum derivatives.

Moisturize at night with natures most perfect oil. Extra virgin coconut oil has been used for centuries by people all over the world and is nature’s oldest and most popular moisturizer. It keeps the skin strong and supple, preventing sagging, wrinkled skin. It protects from free radicals and prevents dry skin, blemishes, heals and repairs, and is known to reduce liver spots. Do not limit the use just to your face. It can be applied anywhere on your body, heels, hands, cuticles, elbows, etc.

Omega-3 fatty acids are a key ingredient for beautiful skin. Most people are seriously lacking in these fats that are vital for vibrant, healthy looking skin.

Eczema, dry skin, cracked heels and premature aging are all signs of Omega-3 deficiency. Omega-3 fats prevent dehydration in the cells so that the skin cells are strong and full of moisture. Fish oil and Alaskan wild salmon are good sources of Omega-3. If you are a Vegan, you can use hemp, linseed and chia seeds.

Give your skin extra care during the winter when dry air can dry out your skin, and cold windy weather also depletes your skin of moisture.

Consider running a humidifier to increase the moisture in the air.
