We’re smack dab in the middle of winter which means it’s a great time to reevaluate your skincare routine especially since our poor skin is being bombarded by the elements and huge swings in temperature, humidity, etc. It can all be a bit much to say the least and we want that glow back. Here are a few tips on getting the most out of products from skincare expert Michele Griffiths of luxury organic skincare brand, SUPERNATURAL BODY:
Watch out for any drying agents especially those you might use on your face. Commercial cleansers and sulphate containing products (i.e. ones that lather) strip away too much of the skins natural defenses. When these natural oils are removed the skin can go completely out of whack, resulting in even more oil. Consider replacing your foaming cleanser for an oil-based cleanser like Supernatural Klenz. The cream formula gently cleanses the skin with a carefully balanced recipe of natural ingredients, which have a similar Ph to that of your skin’s natural Ph of 5.5. Klenz leaves skin feeling soft and moisturized and will not strip skin of its natural oils.
A large amount of commercial skincare products also have petroleum based ingredients that will almost certainly dry out your skin. Choose a natural cleanser free of harsh chemicals preferably USDA certified organic.
Many water-based products are held together with more harsh chemicals that make the product feel better during application but are not necessarily helping out in the long run. A natural oil based moisturizer will help create a protective cushion on your skin that retains more moisture. Consider switching from a water-based moisturizer to an organic oil based one like Supernatural Bloom.
Facial serums are all the rage at the moment because they can really help control skin hydration changes, which can obviously be a huge problem in winter. Supernatural Poshen Serum contains powerful antioxidants to help fight the signs of aging and hyaluronic acid to help improve hydration.
Winter skin isn’t just contained to your face so let’s not forget the rest of your body. There are many wonderful body oils and balms that will help soothe dry and itchy skin from the neck down. Consider an organic product such as Supernatural Lavish Body Butter, which is a rich and luxurious deep-conditioning treatment for hands, body and even face. It contains antioxidants and essential fatty acids to restore elasticity and promote healing.
