Protect Your Skin during the Winter Months

I love winter. During this glorious time of the year, I enjoy spending time with family members during the holiday season. I also like to sip hot chocolate while lounging in flannel pajamas. While I adore winter, I don’t like what the cold weather can do to my skin. To prevent your skin from becoming too dry when the weather turns cold outside, drink plenty of water. Also, apply a moisturizer to your skin a couple of times each day. If you must go outdoors in dangerously frigid temperatures, make sure to cover your face properly. On this blog, I hope you will discover smart tips to make your skin glow during the winter months. Enjoy!

Why Organic Skin Care Products?

When you use skin care products, the last thing that want to do is to put products on your face that are going to be doing more harm than good. If you don't put enough thought into the products that you use on your face, then you can end up with more problems than before. You may not immediately see the damage those products are causing, but this doesn't mean that damage isn't occurring slowly. You should put a great deal of thought into the skin care products you choose to use, and this means considering organic skin care products. Here are some reasons for choosing organic products for your face care regimen.

They don't contain harsh chemicals

When you use organic skin care products you won't have to worry about putting harsh chemicals on your face. When you read the ingredients list for a skin care product and you find you can't pronounce some of the ingredients, then this is a good indication that you need to research the ingredients more thoroughly. Harsh chemicals can dry your skin out, clog your pores, and in extreme situations cause irritation or even burns. Organic skin care products are typically made with gentle, natural ingredients that are actually good for your skin.

They don't contain surprise ingredients

When you are putting anything on your face, you should know what you are using. When you use organic products, you will know that you are using products that have been derived from plants, berries, fruits, and other naturally occurring ingredients that have been chosen because they offer specific benefits for your skin.

They come with less risk of allergic reactions

When you choose to use organic products for your skin, you will be decreasing the likeliness of having an allergic reaction to the product. When you have an allergic reaction to something that is applied directly to your skin you can end up with redness, inflammation, rashes, hives, itchiness, and more. If you find this happening, then you should take an antihistamine orally or apply it topically to the affected area.

They are gentle and do what they say

Organic skin care products will be much gentler on your skin than products with unknown chemicals and other agents. Also, the various ingredients will have specific, proven benefits for your skin. For example, aloe will help with acne, as well as skin burns. Oatmeal will help remove excess oil. It also helps to reduce inflammation while it acting as a cleanser to remove dirt and dead skin cells.
