Winter can affect the skin in numerous ways but dry flaky skin is the most common result of winter weather. The cold air lacks humidity and dries up natural oils in the skin, causing it to lose its moisture. Added to that central heating dries the air inside so we need to find ways to keep our skin feeling moist and supple throughout the winter. The perfect lotion to do this is Chuckling Goats’ Soothing Kefir Lotion.
It not only moisturizes the skin it nourishes it as well. The kefir balances and nourishes the bacteria on the surface of the skin helping to protect it and the added natural oils bathe the skin in moisture. Made with love in small batches.
A great all-purpose soothing milk is the DermaBalm® from Natures Naturals, its especially effective for dry, itchy skin, including for those suffering from diabetes related skin conditions, eczema and psoriasis, featuring totally naturally-sourced ingredients www.naturesnaturals.co.uk
To give your skin an extra moisture boost use InLight’s Organic Chocolate face mask. It is an intensely nourishing, indulgent and uplifting mask. It has a long lasting effect on the skin leaving it soft and plump and the smell is addictive for chocolate lovers. There’s also the Superfood Mask. A wonderfully uplifting and rejuvenating organic face mask to detoxify and repair the skin, power-packed with antioxidants and essential fatty acids, naturally rich in Vitamin E

We tend to concentrate on our face during the winter months but hair needs attention too. In summer we can leave our hair to dry naturally however, in winter, it is more likely that we will blow dry our hair every time we wash it, leaving it dry and damaged.

It moisturizes your hair without leaving it looking healthy, shiny and manageable. www.tiana-coconut.com
Don’t forget your hands! Although we may intend to wear gloves every time we venture outside often we forget. The same goes for washing dishes, it’s just easier to get on with it and not put on the rubber gloves. The end result is dry chapped hand and flaky nails. A natural solution for hands weakened by weather or repeated washing is Natorigin’s Hypoallergenic Hand & Nail Cream. Its natural formulation is nourishing, protective and moisturizing. It is rapidly absorbed into the skin leaving a non-greasy touch and silky finish. The cream is thick so you only need a small amount to give your hands the moisture they need.
