How can you prepare your skin for cold weather?Published on 11/18/2015
To help it face up to falling temperatures, bad weather and dry, tight-feeling skin, your face needs a revitalising boost to ensure a smooth seasonal transition.
Essential oils, diet and natural skin care can help your epidermis deal with the trials and tribulations of the season.
Moisturise your skin deep down
From your face to your fingertips, moisturising skin care products are your best allies. A weekly exfoliation will help to boost the penetration of these products. Set aside some time each week to apply a moisturising face mask. Trust the super moisturising power of essential oil of neroli in the moisturising Aromessence Néroli oil-serum, together with botanical oil of hazelnut and essential oils of sandalwood and petitgrain.
Water, water and more water
To drink, of course, but also in the air. Use an air humidifier or place a bowl of water on top of a radiator to stop the air in your home from drying out your skin even more. Add a few drops of soothing essential oil of lavender to the water.
Nourish your skin
Eating on the move, snacking and winter indulgences have a drastic effect on the skin’s comfort, reflecting what is happening inside. So it’s time to add some feel-good foods to the menu. Some vitamin A to combat dry skin (liver, eggs, butter, yellow and red vegetables). Some minerals, such as zinc to boost elastin and collagen (oysters and sea food, liver, meat, walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts, wheat germ and cocoa). Essential fatty acids, such as omega 3 and omega 6. Not forgetting fruit and vegetables, to fill your plate with antioxidants and concoct recipes for beautiful skin.
