Natural Remedies for Winter Skin & Hair
As we near winter and colder temperatures, our skincare needs alter slightly to cope with the harsher weather. This usually includes upping our moisturizing game to prevent serious dry skin, efforts to control our dry scalp, and heaps of conditioner to stop breakage in our hair.
So rather than waiting for the cold weather to wreak havoc, we’ve listed the natural ingredients you can use to protect yourself from the cold, harsh weather. You can thank us later!
Our organic, Cold-Pressed Rosehip Oil is packed with skin-nourishing vitamins to hydrate and protect your skin. Not only will Rosehip oil make sure your skin is hydrated enough to fight the cold, but it’s packed full of antioxidants to help your skin can fight off free radicals. In winter your skin is still prone to UV damage, (even when it’s cloudy, rays can still get through) so antioxidants are always important. Making sure your skin is protected and hydrated should be on the top if your winter to-do-list to avoid damage.
That said, if your skin has already been through the mill (this includes acne scars, aging or sensitive skin) Rosehip works to rejuvenate and heal damaged skin, whilst being gentle and soothing on sensitive skin types.
Milk and Almond Face Pack
This two-ingredient mask is perfect for really moisturizing your skin, with products you’ll easily find in your kitchen cupboard! Almonds are rich in vitamin E and fatty acids - ideal for nourishing for your skin and protecting against damaging UV rays which can still be harsh throughout winter.
Because of milk's acid content and enzymes, it will very gently exfoliate your skin, helping remove the dead skin cells that can really dull your skin, as well as making it supple and soft!
You'll need; 1 tablespoon of ground almond powder & 2 tablespoons of raw milk.
Make a paste and apply it to your face, leaving it for around 10 minutes before massaging it in and washing it off with water.
Our Organic Castor Oil has many health benefits, including its ability to repair and nourish hair follicles and strands to prevent or repair the damage. Over the winter months, our hair is prone to breakage and split ends due to drying central heating and harsh cold temperatures, but using Castor Oil will help to protect your hair from damage and treat any scalp maladies such as itchy, dry or dandruff-prone scalps.
To use, simply dampen your hair and apply the oil into your roots and draw down toward the ends. Leave it on for around 15-20 minutes, then wash it out thoroughly.
Avocado and Honey Face Mask
Avocado and honey are both humectants which means that they draw moisture in from the air around you to hydrate your skin. Avocados also contain healthy fats, vitamin E and C and carotenoids which not only help keep your skin hydrated but will protect it from free radical damage.
You'll need; ½ an avocado & 2 tablespoons of honey.
Mash the avocado and add the honey, giving it a mix. Apply the mixture onto your face and neck, letting it dry for 10-15 minutes before rinsing it off with water.
Our brand-new Shampoo Bar has been scientifically formulated to deeply cleanse the hair and nourish the scalp. It works to promote healthy hair growth, keeping dandruff at bay and prevents split ends and dryness, common effects of colder weather.
For best results, lather the bar between your hands in warm water and massage into the scalp and the lengths of your hair. Rinse with warm water and condition with a natural, sulfate-free conditioner.
Because our shampoo bar doesn’t use sulfates, it means it won’t strip the hair of its natural oils, preventing the hair from drying out or overcompensating by over-producing oils throughout winter.
Over winter, both your skin and hair need a little extra TLC and upping your moisturizing game over the colder months is essential. By using these natural ingredients, you can make sure you’re doing exactly that, rather than using overly harsh products which eventually dry your skin or your hair out.
