How to care for your skin in cold weather

This cold weather plays havoc with your skin, the cooler temperatures make capillaries shrink so less nutrients and oxygen reach the surface, sometimes leading to dry, flaky and patchy skin. We wrap ourselves tightly in layers of clothing necessary to keep warm, but this doesn’t allow the skin to breathe.

Treat your skin to a good exfoliation with a natural product, or a soft brush or dry flannel. Then nourish it with a natural moisturiser, perhaps a bit more rich than one you would use in summer to give extra protection, especially on your face which is more exposed than anything to the weather. You will feel a natural glow and your skin will benefit, and don’t forget the skin is an important organ of elimination of toxins, so this will improve the function too.
