Winter is though on your skin! The combination of freezing outdoor temperatures and the dry indoor heat will challenge the balance of the skin. Many of us are feeling dry, red and flakey! We have asked award winning holistic skin therapist. Line Friis, about her top 4 advices to take care of your winter skin.
1. The Winter Coat!
The best way to get your skin through the cold winter months is to use an extra cream on top of your regular day cream. We also call this the "winter coat".
The cream must have a high lipid content (fat) as it retains moisture in the skin and protects the delicate skin on your cheeks. Use it every time you go outside for longer periods - especially if you are running or winter bathing!
2. Use a night oil!
Sleep with a good face oil. 70% of the moisture in our skin evaporates during the night. If you use an oil on your skin, it will help you "trap" the moisture in your skin during the night. Use it on top of your normal evening skincare routine. In this way you prevent moisture loss and you also make sure that the active ingredients you have applied penetrate more safely into the skin.
3. Get The Glow Back!
There are many things you can do to get the glow back into your winter skin. It's all about getting the blood flow going and getting red cheeks! Go for a good run, winter bathe, eat lots of carrots or do a 5 minute facial massage each day. Massage increases blood flow and oxygenates the skin so that a natural glow is easily achieved.
4. The Healthy Fat!
Make sure to get enough healthy fats to moisturize your skin from within. You get the essential fats through your diet and supplements. Every cell in your body benefits from the healthy fatty acids! However as your skin is always the last organ to get supplies from your body, it is important that you get enough of them on a daily basis. Are you getting enough? Great sources are fx fatty fish, nuts, avocado, coconut oil and olive oil.
Our COLLAGEN BOOSTER is a collagen supplement based on pure hydrolyzed collagen peptides from grass-fed cattle, types I and III, in capsules.
Collagen is the largest and most abundand protein in the body. It forms the connective tissue of your skin, hair, nails, bones and joints. Think of it as the glue that holds your body together. From the age of 30, our own natural collagen production begins to decline, which is why you experience fine lines in your skin and possible loss of firmness etc.
You can take Collagen Booster on a daily basis on top of your other supplements!
