Winter Skin: Tips and Products to Combat Dryness and Dullness

Winter is a beautiful season, but it can take a toll on our skin. With colder temperatures, lower humidity, and harsh indoor heating, our skin can easily become dry, flaky, and dull. It's important to adjust our skincare routine to combat the effects of the changing weather. Let’s chat about our top tips and products to help you maintain healthy and glowing skin throughout the winter months.

First and foremost, prioritise internal hydration by ensuring you consistently consume an ample amount of water throughout the day. Adding a lemon to your water can further assist hydration! 

During the winter months, we tend to opt for comforting hot drinks rather than water, which can contribute to skin dehydration. It's important to keep our fluid intake up by drinking plenty of water, herbal tea, and hydrating foods like soups and stews. Drinking water with lemon can also help to flush out toxins and keep your skin looking fresh.

In the winter, it's essential to use a moisturiser to provide your skin with the extra hydration it needs. Look for moisturisers that contain nourishing ingredients like hyaluronic acid, jojoba oil, and peptides. We recommend the Thirsty Moisturiser. This lightweight, yet nourishing moisturiser is packed with skin-loving ingredients to hydrate and brighten any complexion, especially dry/dehydrated skin. It's perfect to protect the skin during the long winter months. Not to mention, the beautiful scent of Australian natives.

In addition to using a moisturiser daily, incorporating a hydrating mask into your routine once a week can provide an extra boost of hydration. We recommend the Thirsty Hydrating Gel Mask. This contains hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and natural oils like avocado and chia seed oil. Leave the mask on for 10-15 minutes and then rinse it off with warm water. It leaves your skin looking and feeling plumper, softer, and brighter.

“I can instantly see and feel a difference to the texture of my skin when I use the hydrating gel mask. No nasty chemicals and smells like a trip to the day spa!”

Lastly, we recommend the Confused Nourishing Oil. This rich oil is designed to balance the skin and increase moisture retention with active ingredients like seabuckthorn oil, avocado oil, and chia seed oil. It's best used after moisturiser to help lock in the products underneath and protect the skin from drying out from environmental causes. Apply a few drops to your face and neck, and gently massage it in. Another totally luxurious product to incorporate into your routine!

 Taking care of your skin during the winter months doesn't have to be complicated. With a few simple tips and the right products, you can maintain healthy, hydrated, and glowing skin all season long.
