Wintertime is wonderful for so many reasons. The holidays, the coziness of sweaters, and the beautiful sight of fresh snow on the ground. Unfortunately, that also mean a drop and temperatures and a lack of moisture in the air which can be extremely hard on your skin! Never fear, there are a few foolproof ways to keeping your skin hydrated so you can make it through winter both comfortably and beautifully.
Use a hydrating facial serum
Those cold winds really do a number on your skin so it’s important to keep it well protected. You can easily implement a facial serum into your skincare routine and walk out of your home each morning confident that it will work to keep your skin hydrated all day long.
The Calm Active Botanical Serum is formulated with Jojoba, Turmeric Essential Oil, Rosehip Oil, & Carrot Seed Oil, to quicky absorb into the skin. The star ingredient of this serum is Jojoba which is nearly identical to the makeup of your skin’s naturally produced oil, sebum. This makes Jojoba extremely easy for your skin to absorb so you’ll reap all of the moisturizing benefits without any greasiness.
Exfoliate and moisturize
If you notice your skin looking dull and feeling itchy, you might just need to get rid of those lingering dead skin cells. Use an exfoliating scrub like the Calm Coconut Sugar Body Polish or a dry brush to loosen and remove dead skin. When you’re finished, lather your body in a rich moisturizing cream that adds and locks in moisture. We recommend the Calm Amberwood & Myrrh Body Crème.
Use an herbal facial steam
Give yourself a little at-home spa treatment with the Calm Herbal Facial Steam. Simply empty the packet of botanics and herbs – chamomile, rose petals, orange peel, oatstraw, lemon balm, lavender, jasmine flowers, witch hazel leaf, calendula flowers – into a large bowl and cover with hot, steaming water. Drape a town over your head and hover your freshly cleansed face over the bowl and inhale deeply. The steam will hydrate your skin and deliver the beneficial properties of botanics and herbs.
Take a luxurious bath
Wintertime can have you craving a warm and relaxing getaway. Although it may not be possible to jump on a jet and land on a beach, there are still ways to bring a bit of relief right to your home. The Calm Coconut Milk Bath blurs the lines between bath time and a secluded tropical island. When you slip into this bath, your senses fill with the coconut fragrance of the islands while your body absorbs much-needed moisture and vitamins. Colloidal oatmeal and honey work together to exfoliate and sooth dry, itchy skin. Hello, gorgeous!
