  • Start with a good skincare routine

The first step to keeping your skin soft and supple this winter is to start with a good skincare routine. This means at a minimum: cleansing, toning and moisturizing your skin every day.

  1. Use a gentle cleanser that won’t strip your skin of its natural oils, and
  2. Follow up with a hydrating toner.
  3. Then, lock in the moisture with a quality moisturizer
  4. Bonus: For extra hydration, layer a serum or facial oil that contains hyaluronic acid, squalane, or Vitamin E under your moisturizer to help boost hydration. These ingredients help to attract and retain moisture in the skin. Our Bleue Fresh Oil is a perfect addition to your existing skincare routine. Made with luxurious blue tansy oil, this skin treatment oil boosts the skin's moisture level combating dry skin, while also taming any acne or inflammation plus it helps fights early signs of aging.

  • Drink plenty of water

It’s important to drink plenty of water all year round, but it’s especially important in the winter when the air is dry and can sap moisture from your skin. Aim for eight glasses of water per day, and you’ll notice a difference in your skin’s appearance.

  • Invest in a quality moisturizer

 As we mentioned above, a quality moisturizer is essential for keeping your skin soft and supple this winter. If your regular moisturizer isn’t cutting it, consider upgrading to a richer, more emollient formula. Such as our Melanin Rich Creme +CBD. Packed with oils and butters that are excellent for winter weather, as they provide a barrier against the elements:

  1. Sunflower oil, hydrates the skin without clogging pores and provides a protective barrier against environmental stressors.
  2. Argan Oil, moisturizes skin, while also treating acne and aiding in the appearance of premature aging.
  3. Oat Oil, highly absorbent intense relief from dry, itchy skin and can help reverse damage caused by environmental stressors.
  4. Botanical Hyaluronic Acid, naturally and ethically sourced ingredient that attracts and retains moisture, replacing the Hyaluronic Acid our skin loses with age.
  • Keep your skin protected

One of the best ways to keep your skin soft and supple this winter is to make sure you protect it from the elements. When you’re heading outdoors, make sure to cover up with a scarf, hat, or sunglasses. 

When the temperatures really drop, trade in your regular lotion for a thicker cream, or butter to help seal in moisture. Look for natural ingredients such as Shea Butter, Mango Butter, and Kokum butter (all of which can be found in our Whipped souffles 😉)

 

  • Don’t forget the sunscreen

Just because the sun isn’t out as much in the winter doesn’t mean you can skip the sunscreen. In fact, the sun’s rays can be just as harmful in winter as in summer. So make sure to apply broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 every day, even if you’re just heading to the office.

  • Consider a humidifier

If your skin is feeling extra dry this winter, consider investing in a humidifier. A humidifier adds moisture to the air, which can help to hydrate your skin. Just be sure to clean your humidifier regularly to prevent the growth of mold and mildew.

  • Get your beauty sleep

Beauty sleep is important all year round, but it’s especially important in the winter when your skin is more susceptible to dryness. Make sure to get seven to eight hours of sleep per night, and your skin will thank you.

  • Eat healthy

What you eat has a direct impact on your skin. So make sure to eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. And if you’re feeling extra dry, up your intake of omega-3 fatty acids, which are found in foods like salmon, flaxseeds, and chia seeds.

  • Stay stress-free

Last, but definitely not least, try to keep your stress levels in check. When you’re stressed, your body produces stress hormones that can wreak havoc on your skin. So take some time for yourself, and you’ll notice a difference in your skin’s appearance.

By following these simple tips, you can say goodbye to dry, winter skin and hello to a radiant and glowing complexion.

Get your gleaux on babes!
