We all want that perfect glowing skin throughout the year. As the weather changes your skin routine changes. In the winter you use more lotion. In the summer you use more sun block. One of the best things you can do for your skin is learning how to care for your skin. This includes buying products with the least amount of chemicals. Choosing products that are chemical free and all natural are the best options on how to care for your skin. Along with an all-natural skin routine, take a look at some of the tips we have to keep your skin supple. Here are three ways you can do to care for your skin and keep it supple without the chemicals.
Choose A Lukewarm Shower Over a Hot One
I have to admit, nothing beats a hot shower after a long day at work. A hot shower is even better during those cold winter months. But hot water actually strips your skin of its natural oil barrier that’s needed to help trap moisture. Ever wonder why you need to put on lotion after you shower? It might be because your showers are too hot. So tone the temperature down a bit and keep the time under 10 minutes. You’ll save water, your gas bill will be so much cheaper, and your skin will look as supple and rejuvenated as ever. And, you don’t have to spend so much money on lotion when your skin is already moisturized from its natural oils.
Shower with All-Natural Goats Milk Soap
A goats milk soap works perfectly for people with dry or sensitive skin, especially those with eczema and psoriasis. There’s two reasons why this kind of bar soap does wonders for dry skin. First, all natural soaps produce a by-product called “glycerin”, which naturally attracts moisture to your skin. It’s fat molecules also help boost moisturization. Second, it's made with goats milk, which contains a high concentration of Vitamin A. It just so happens that Vitamin A repairs damaged skin tissue. Goats milk also contains alpha-hydroxy acids which help remove dead skin cells. This leaves your skin looking smoother and younger looking. Our a la mode bar has all of the above and more, including feeling super creamy and silky on the skin.
Get A Humidifier
Ever notice your skin looking dryer when you wake up. I know personally for me, my hair used to get really dry when I woke up in the morning. I spent hours research exactly why that was happening. The answer was getting a humidifier. The cold winter air lacks humidity and dries up the natural oils in your skin, causing it to lose moisture. Add to that indoor heating, which dries the air indoors, leading to a double whammy. So crank on the humidifier and your skin will feel a difference. The humidifier will help replace some of the moisture that’s lost from the heating system. It’s an extra step you have to do before going to bed, but I’m telling it’s definitely worth it.
Try one or all these steps and see what the difference these changes can make on your skin. What are some simple ways you’ve kept your skin supple? Would love to hear how you care for your skin!
