6 Winter Woe Solvers

The cold winter weather means we are exposed to furnace heat, long hot showers and harsh winter air, all of which can leave skin feeling dry, sensitized, flakey, red and uncomfortable. So to help you beat the winter blues, we’re sharing calming, cooling and gentle skincare to sooth skin and pump up the hydration.

    All of these sound great right about now! I feel like nothing I have at home works in this dry, cold weather – I guess I might have ONE excuse to stock up on Cyber Monday this year!

    Yes winter can certainly wreck havoc on our skin & body! I think having too hot a bath in winter (or any time really) is detrimental to our skin, but that we should always moisturize as soon as we come out of the bath or shower, as our skin just soaks it up!

    I also love Origins Make A Difference Hand Cream, as i find it really sinks into my skin without leaving it greasy – it’s a Beauty product that actually works for me! I post deals on Origins products on my blog if you want a freebie with your next Origins purchase. Fingers crossed a deal comes out soon as I need some more :)
