5 Top Tips To Avoid Dry Skin This Winter

Eat well & increase healthy fats

Our skin health is directly connected to our gut health so when we’re eating lots of fresh, nutrient rich foods it shows through our skin. To help with skin dryness during winter, try increasing the healthy fats in your diet through foods such as walnuts, avocado and olive oil to get all those good omegas!


Drink filtered water & limit diuretics

Alcohol and caffeine cause dehydration so keep your intake of these to a minimum and remember to always drink lots of water to keep skin looking plump and hydrated and avoid that winter dullness. 


Invest in a quality face & body oil

Dry skin is caused by a weakened skin barrier which can occur due to environmental and internal health factors. Heaters, hot water and blasting winds can all contribute to skin dryness in the cooler months but using face and body oils will give you a game changing layer of protection against the elements. Quality face oil like our Collagen Boosting & Barrier Restorative Face Oil and hydrating body oils have the ability to deeply penetrate the skin to hydrate it and seal in moisture in a way that cream moisturizers just can’t achieve. Our favourite pick for winter is our Nurture Natural Body Oil which is infused with organic calendula petals for their healing properties that target dry and irritated skin.


Limit showers to 5-10 minutes

It can be so tempting to enjoy long, hot showers when its cold outside but unfortunately hot water can strip the skin of its natural oils, which can lead to skin barrier damage and dryness. Try to stick to one short, warm shower per day and use a quality bath/body oil like our Goddess Natural Body Oil in baths to protect your skin. Our antioxidant & omega rich body oils are full of only natural, nourishing plant based oils and pure essential oils.


Prepare your home

Winter brings changes in humidity and temperature that create perfect conditions for causing dry skin; the drier the air, the drier the skin. Placing a humidifier in the room where you spend the most time will increase the moister in the air and help to keep your skin hydrated.
