Lifesaver Products For Your Dry Winter Skin.
In the midst of Winter, it's probably not only your body temperature that's suffering. The icy conditions can have rubbish effects on your skin, leaving it flaky and in major need of some hydration. Even the oiliest of people will probably be experiencing some dryness right now, so we're here to be your dry skin fairy god mothers.
From easing those cracked lips, to making sure you're feeling as glowy as possible, we've been sourcing out of the best products for healing your dry skin. We're talking the most luxurious, hydrating ingredients that will have you feeling nourished AF in an instant. Get ready to get plumped up.
When it comes to cleansing, it's important to find something that won't strip your skin of moisture. Even acne prone skin types can benefit from an oil/balm cleanser, as they help to regulate the oils in your skin, reducing the risk of breakouts. The Inkey List's cult Oat Balm cleanser is excellent for removing makeup and cleansing the skin, all whilst avoiding any flakiness. Use this as part of a double cleanse, and your skin will be prepped to take on the winter blues.
Hyaluronic acid is a total cult ingredient when it comes to getting hydrated, bouncy skin. Apply this as a serum after cleansing whilst the skin is still damp - the formula will bond with the water and draw more moisture into the skin, leaving it feeling and looking super fresh. This is a great product for repairing your skin's barrier, which may have become damaged over the chillier months.
Rose hip seed oil is best applied at night, after water based products, to help seal in that moisture and leave skin feeling super plump. This is a great simple oil for anyone who has not experimented with facial oils before, plus it's perfect for reducing any chance of flakiness.
Laneige's Lip Sleep Mask has made a resurgence on TikTok recently, with users praising it's super nourishing effects on the lips. Just pop this on after your night time routine and let it work it's magic overnight - it even comes in a variety of scents for you to choose from. Soon your flaky lips will extra smooth and ready for smooches all over again...
Don't be afraid of some exfoliation if you've got dry skin - getting rid of that outer layer of flakiness is crucial for healing. Our Strawberry Himalayan Salt Scrub contains apricot kernel oil, sunflower oil and sweet almond oil, alongside Himalayan salt and Strawberry liquid extract, making it the perfect balance of exfoliation and hydration. Buff away dry skin (and any left over fake tan!), whilst providing your skin with any extra burst of nourishment.
Dry scalp conditions like eczema and psoriasis can flare up in the winter, leaving you feeling sore and itchy. This leave in treatment from Eucerin is super lightweight, meaning you can apply it during the day without leaving your roots looking greasy. It helps to calm and soothe the scalp, meaning you can have one less flaky problem to worry about (unfortunately it won't help with you ex, though).
A luxurious body butter is ESSENTIAL at the moment, and our Whipped Vanilla Cocoa Body Butter is perfect for locking in that moisture. Don't be deceived by its thick texture - it sinks into the skin really easily, with avocado and coconut oils penetrating through the skins layers to seal in that nourishment. This butter will leave your skin super soft and glowing, even if you're still dealing with the January blues.
Zoe Bee has the most amazing selection of organic, natural skincare, and their Green Cream is our personal fave. Not only is it super hydrating, it also helps to heal scarring and acne - its thick texture doesn't clog the pores but provides a that nourishment that is so essential right now. Be quick though, this is always a sell out.
The golden rule of skincare is: SPF is for every day. This sunscreen is super lightweight, and provides hydration and protection from UV rays, alongside some some light, glowy coverage for those no make up days. Its factor 50+, non-comedogenic (won't block your pores) and vegan friendly - what's not to love?
Let's face it, chapped hands are not what anyone wants. A super nourishing hand cream is essential for the winter and this is a great choice for anyone who is prone to irritation and redness. Perfect for eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis sufferers, banishing the cracks has never been easier.
Now you're ready to get that winter healing on, make sure you're stocked up on our Shea butter soap bars. They're great for protecting and nourishing your skin, leaving you squeaky clean and hydrated AF.
