Natural Care: Winter Skin

It is no longer a secret that the skin needs special care in winter. For those who like naturalness, these beauty tips can protect and nurture their skin – and with perfect helpers from nature.

The decreasing temperatures are responsible for the fact that the skin’s protective coat is less stable than in the summer. The slowed production of tallow causes the skin to dry out faster, cracked and brittle. Especially the face and hands need the intensive care to look pink and healthy. And if you use natural products, you can quickly stabilize the protective coat and do something good for your skin.

Our favorites for a well-maintained winter skin:

Avocado Mask

Tips for general care

– When showering the skin do not steal the protective coat excessively: soap and shower gels deprive the skin of the fats and so weaken the protective coat. The skin should be treated especially after showering and soap used only sparingly, for example, with arms and lower legs.
– For care and beauty products, make sure that no alcohol is contained, as this also dries the skin.
– When bathing in winter use bath oil instead of bubble bath products. The oil nourishes the skin and builds up the protective coat.
– The winter conditions also apply to the hair:through dyeing the scalp is stressed, in the cold months should therefore be limited.After washing the hair only lukewarm, not too hot.
