3 Ways to Protect Your Skin This Winter

Heal All Balm $28

During the colder months, skin is more likely to dry out and break. This can be extremely painful, and doesn't exactly make your day any easier. To ensure your skin is protected and nourished all winter long, follow these three tips.

Face

During the winter, it's not uncommon for the skin on your face to start drying out and chapping. Lets not forget our lips, which are super sensitive and prone to breakage during this time! In order to make sure your skin gets the nourishment it needs, make sure to moisturize it every day. We recommend trying our Calendula Balm: It's gentle enough to use on your face and your lips. Infused with organic calendula flowers, this moisturizing balm will be able to sooth all your facial skincare woes. It's also vegan, and of course cruelty-free. To use, just apply it to freshly cleansed skin, including forehead, cheeks, chin, and lips. Anywhere that needs extra moisture and hydration. We recommend doing this at least twice a day: Before applying makeup and at night, after your makeup is removed. If you'd like something a little more specific for your lips, we recommend trying our Peppermint Lip Balm: It's so easy to glide onto your lips and extra nourishing!

Hands

Do your hands dry out in the winter? You're not alone: Many people struggle with the same problem. The key to making sure they stay as smooth as possible is constant moisture. Unlike facial skin, hands need even more hydration: You should be applying moisturizer anywhere from 5 to 7 times a day to your hands. We recommend using our Quarter Life Crisis Balm: It comes in a compostable tube that makes it super easy to apply onto your hands. Just push up the balm and roll it onto the areas of your hands that need some extra hydration. When you're done applying it, be sure to rub it in very good so your skin absorbs to better. Apply it to your hands before going out into the cold, after washing your hands, after a shower, and before bed for the best results. It will help keep your hands nourished all winter long. Also, don't forget to wear gloves when you go outside, for extra protection!

Body

Sometimes, winter air can dry out the skin on our bodies too. It can even cause your skin to get extra itchy in the weirdest of places for no reason (ex: Your legs). To soothe dry skin on your body, try our Heal All Balm: It's powerful enough to use anywhere and everywhere!  Infused with aloe vera, chamomile, and burdock, it's great for soothing itchy winter skin. Just roll it onto all your problem areas and massage it into your body. We recommend using this at least once a day, preferably right before bed so your skin has ample time to absorb it. As a bonus tip, we also recommend investing in a humidifier for your bedroom: This will eliminate dry air and replace it with higher levels on humidity, which will greatly help your skin. Leave your humidifier on at night after applying our Heal All Balm and you'll wake up to amazing skin!
