Does your skin dry out in the winter? The drop in temperature and central heating can cause the skin to become very dry. This can lead to itchy or dry skin all over our body including our face and lips.
Here are some tips to help keep your skin stay soft, smooth, and healthy during the colder Winter months. Water is great for the skin but in cold weather it is better to go with warm water. Avocado, sweet potato, hemp seeds, nuts, omega oils from oily fish or good quality seed oils like walnut or flax seed oil can all help nourish and hydrate the skin. Add pulses or lentils for extra nutrition and protein to warming soups. Cut back or avoid coffee, fizzy drinks, alcohol, and smoking.
Most of you know I love Trilogy Skincare products. They use clean, natural ingredients. This means no fillers, just potent, effective formulations proven by science to aid healthy, glowing skin.
When it comes to hydration, Trilogy Organic Rosehip oil is the perfect choice. The Organic Rosehip oils’ golden hue is a sign of its quality and concentration, Trilogy also batch-test each bottle to ensure it has 80% essential fatty acid content. You’ll find 100% pure Certified Organic Rosehip Oil in many of the Trilogy products to help nourish and replenishing the skin during the winter months. You can use Trilogy Organic Rosehip Oil under your Moisturiser to form an extra protective layer.
This time of year, you could choose one of the gift sets which are always fantastic value. For example, Trilogy ‘Dewy Skin Trio’’ and Trilogy ‘All About You’ value sets contain a full-size Certified Organic Rosehip Oil and a full-size Rosehip Cream Cleanser designed to Cleanse, Nourish and Boost skin complexion whilst saving your pocket 50% off the retail price.
I love the Trilogy’s Body Beautiful Duo Gift Set. It contains Botanical Body Wash and Pure Plant Body Oil, two beautiful products to nourish and hydrate the skin. The body wash is a soap-free, non-drying body wash, perfect for your bath and shower. The Body Oil is an easily absorbed lightweight fragrance free and nourishing oil blend.
For dry hands you could choose the Ultra Hydration Hand Cream, another one of my favourites.
These gift ideas are an ideal stocking filler, or treat for yourself!
