How to protect your skin during the winter.
- Moisturize daily. Cream-based
moisturizers are better than lotions for normal to dry skin. If you have
sensitive skin, choose a moisturizer without fragrance or lanolin.
Apply moisturizer directly to your wet skin after bathing so the
moisturizer can help trap surface moisture. Our Olive Butter does an awesome job at adding that moisture your skin thirst for.
- Cleanse your skin, but don’t overdo it. Too much
cleansing removes the skin’s natural moisturizers. Organic natural black soap works wonders. Be sure not to rub the soap directly against skin when showering or bathing. This may cause scratches on the skin due to the all natural ingredients.
- Limit the use of hot water and soap. If you have
“winter itch,” take short lukewarm showers or baths with a
non-irritating, non-detergent-based cleanser. As I mentioned above our Organic 100% pure African Black Soap works well. Click picture below to order today. Remember to gently pat skin dry and apply your body butter.
- Humidify. Dry air can pull the moisture from your
skin. Room humidifiers can be very beneficial. However, be sure to clean the unit and change the water according to the manufacturer’s
instructions to reduce mold and fungi.
- Protect yourself from the wind. Cover your face and
use our moisturizing Olive Butter for your skin. Click on the picture below to order yours today.
- Avoid extreme cold. Cold temperatures can cause
skin disorders or frostbite in some people.
- Protect your skin from the sun. Remember that
winter sun can also be dangerous to the skin.
- Avoid winter tanning. If you want to keep your summer glow, use self-tanners along with extra moisturizer, as self-tanners can also dry out the skin. We offer a beautiful shimmer body butter that will keep your skin that summer glow. Click on picture to order your Glow Up Body Shimmer Body Butter today.
- Take vitamin D supplements. During the summer, your
natural vitamin D production increases as a result of daily sun
exposure. Taking vitamin supplements can ensure that you get the recommended amounts of vitamin D all year round.
- See your dermatologist. If you have persistent dry
skin, scaling, itching, rashes, or skin growths that concern you, please visit your dermatologist. Visiting your dermatologist is not only for the winter but for any time of the year.
