Winter conditions can be outright brutal to skin! Here are three simple tips to help you weather the weather beautifully.
- Hydrate your body — Simply put, this means water. Your body needs even more water than usual under these dry conditions. The best way to keep skin looking plump and supple is to DRINK a daily supply of at least 64 oz of water a day (eight glasses). You can also hydrate skin through submerging in water (like a bath! or a shower). Hydrotherapy, or water therapy, offers numerous benefits especially when enhanced with botanicals, minerals, nourishing oils and essential oils.
- Exfoliate dry, dead skin — at least weekly to maintain healthy skin. The discovery of the exfoliation process is credited to the ancient Egyptians. It has been used for centuries to refresh and renew skin and lips, as well as improve circulation, unclog pores and restore a healthy glow. Exfoliation is also important for men, as it exposes hair follicles, allowing for a closer shave.
- Moisturize — deeply and frequently. Get into a daily habit of moisturizing skin. Wintertime calls for a thicker cream type for a deep overnight face hydration, and gentle cleansing (consider cleansing with an oil product (oil cleansing method) rather than with soap). And for a smooth, soft skin on body, lotion up and nourish skin with every shower. Your skin will experience the most benefit if pores are open (from a nice warm bath or shower) when the lotion is applied.
Mind and body are connected! Stay warm, stay healthy, stay happy … and your skin will surely show it!

Bathing with REAL Body Care
Wait a second before you wash your hair. Take a close look at the product you are about to use. Does it list the ingredients? Do you know what they are? The everyday home body care products (soaps, lotions, shampoos, etc.) that you use on yourself and your family can contain ingredients that are hazardous to your health.
Awareness of the importance of good, real, body care is common knowledge in much of the World, and many of the ingredients used in these daily care products have been banned in other countries. It’s really up to you. If you want to avoid these questionable and potentially harmful ingredients, then ditching “processed” body care is your best option.
It’s time to get real with your soaps and shampoos. It’s time to take a close look at the ingredients and swap out those regular body care choices to products with simple understandable ingredients and mindful business practices. It’s time to feed your skin what it needs to be vibrant and healthy. Those choices are out there.
Choosing body care that is made with fresh whole foods is a necessity if you value your families health. It can start with a small step. Read the ingredients, choose wisely and enjoy. You and your skin will shine brightly.
