HOW TO MANAGE DRY WINTER SKIN
Keep your skin happy, healthy & glowing even in the harshest season
It's highly important to find a replenishing cleanser that will not strip moisture from the skin and leaves its natural barrier intact. An oil or cream cleanser is the best choice for this time of the year. Try Edible Beauty No. 1 Belle Frais Cleansing Milk,
found at ediblebeautyaustralia. com, or Max& Me Purity And Grace, found at maxandme. at/ en/ shop.
Finding a nourishing moisturizer that protects the skin from further moisture loss is essential. If your skin is red, reactive and very sensitive, it's desperately in need of instant calming action. My go- to products are Zk'in Relief Moistur
izer, found at zkinorganics. com. au and Max& Me Sweet Serenity/ Beauty Balm. I recommend a very rich, balmy moisturizer at night, you can even apply it as a mask in a thick layer when watching a movie or reading at home. Coco Bliss Intensive Re
pair by Edible Beauty is the perfect night treatment for dry winter skin, with nourishing oils and balms, it leaves the skin perfectly hydrated.
It is always important to exfoliate regularly. Once a week is sufficient and you will want to find a very gentle exfoliant. Stay away from anything containing microbeads, which are tiny round plastic beads, often blue or pink in colors, that are present in many mainstream and luxury skincare brands. They are incredibly dangerous to marine life and birds and they pose a huge environmental hazard. Use natural exfoliants instead. A great choice for dr y winter skin is Edible Beauty & Desert Lime Flawless Micro- Exfoliant. When it comes to combating dry skin, you can't forget about nourishing oils. They can be used alone or they can be mixed with your daily moisturizer to give your skin an extra hit of nourishment. Give Edible Beauty & Exotic Seed of Youth - Anti- Ageing Oil a go. Max& Me Enchanted is another wonderfully calming oil t hat i s perfect for winter.
Last but not least, your lips will require some extra protection when temperatures dip. My favorite vegan lip balms for winter are the Hurraw
balms found at hurrawbalm. com, they are great on the go, and easy to keep in your pocket or bag. Keep a jar of a rich, multi- purpose balm at home, it can be an almost instant repair for dry, flakey skin.
Ere Perez Papaya SOS Marmalade,
found at ereperez. com, is a great vegan choice.
With just a few little adjustments to your routine, you can keep your skin happy, healthy and glowing even in the harshest season. All these tips are toxin- free and vegan! ◆
