Unlock Radiant Skin This Winter Season
As winter approaches, it’s time to remain indoors as much as possible, invest in some ultra-comforting sweatpants, and lavish yourself with the most hydrating treatments available. Our bodies need extra hydration just like our faces do to combat the effects of colder temperatures, dry air and indoor heating on skin.
We’re stocking up on nourishing oils, rich natural butters, and relaxing botanical extracts so that we can restore moisture back into our skin while also reinvigorating us throughout the day.
From the divinely luxurious body butter to delightful foot-cream, these treasured body care essentials are certain to keep us going during this trying season.
1. Exfoliate Regularly
Exfoliating your skin has two key benefits: it instantly leaves skin softer and more radiant, while also allowing the products you apply afterward to penetrate deeper. Dry brushing is an excellent way to achieve this — use swift strokes with firm pressure going up your arms and legs in the direction of your heart for maximum results. For added invigoration, try dry brushing first thing in the morning! You’ll feel a burst of energy that will carry you through all day long.
Not only does it feel great, but showering with a nourishing scrub can offer glow-boosting and dead-skin-obliterating benefits. For example, this luscious blend of detoxifying salts and ultra moisturizing oils will leave your skin velvety soft with the faint aroma of rosemary and grapefruit lingering on your body.
Plus, you won’t need to even think about applying lotion afterward since the scrub makes skin so supple! Be sure not to overdo it though – stick to either dry brushing or using body scrubs in one morning session for best results.
2. Cleanse Your Skin with Natural Oils and Butters
Featuring natural ingredients, Olverum’s body polish is the perfect solution for your skin! Not only does it provide an invigorating cleanse without stripping away vital natural oils from your skin but its rainbow-tinted glass bottle looks gorgeous in any bathroom. Plus with such luxuriant lather you simply won’t be able to put this product down – making it the ideal holiday gift that will bring joy every time they use it.
Our most cherished way to moisturize is right out of the shower. Pampering your body with a luxurious body butter slows down time – its combination of intensely nourishing botanicals produces outcomes similar to those provided by a top-notch face cream; in one clinical study, 93 percent of participants agreed their skin felt significantly more elastic and supple, along with an attractive sheen.
4. Combat Dry Hands
We all know that frequent handwashing can dry out the skin, but our hands were already prone to premature aging and exposure. The skin on your hands is thinner than other areas of the body, contains fewer oil glands, and is often exposed to sunlight, wind and pollution – making them vulnerable.
To keep your palms looking (and feeling) nourished at all times make sure you include moisturizing into your daily routine! By doing this twice a day you will notice softness as well as suppleness in appearance while also experiencing smooth tactile sensations.
5. Pamper Your Feet
Slowing down the day’s frenetic pace sometimes can be a challenge; yet, massaging your feet with sumptuous cream each night for only minutes is all you need to feel connected and watch rough spots and calluses turn into velvety smoothness.
