1. Adjust Your Skincare Routine

2. Use a Daily Sunscreen
Your skin is just as susceptible to sun damage in the winter as it is during the summer. The sun rays might not feel as strong as in the summer months, but the UV rays continue to break down your skin cells and cause damage. Use a daily sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher to maintain healthy and protected skin year round.
3. Stay Hydrated
The number one way to keep your skin soft and silky is to stay hydrated. Drinking enough water is SO important for your health in every way. It helps to regulate our body temperature and contribute to healthy looking hair and skin. Drinking plenty of water during the winter will help prevent your skin from getting too dry and flaky. Which in term will help prevent premature wrinkles!
It is important to exfoliate your skin year round, but in the winter months even more so. The skin is the body's largest organ, so you should take care of it as best you can! Exfoliating helps to remove dead skin cells from the outer layers of our skin, which we tend to have more of during the drying effects of winter.
These are our favorite exfoliating products to add to your winter skincare routine:
Use dry body brush to exfoliate, improving circulation while gently removing dead skin cells. Use wet with body wash or soap to clean skin and unclog pores allowing skin care products to penetrate effectively preventing dry skin.
Slip on before you bathe for dry exfoliating. Removing dry skin will allow you a deeper clean. Use them with your favorite cleanser while you shower as an all over body exfoliator. Apply moisturizing lotion directly after.
Each of these incredibly nourishing, balancing, hydrating and protective delights start with a powerful foundation that includes Organic Honey, Propolis, and Royal Jelly.
5. Don't Forget About Your Hands
Every winter seems like the same thing - your hands get super dry and itchy. It seems even worse these days since we have all gotten much better at washing our hands frequently. That can be a harsh combination during the winter months.
Try treating your winter hands with a daily hand cream that can fit right in your purse. Our Shea Butter Moisturizing hand creams are the ultimate treatment for your dry skin. Shea Butter is nourishing, soothing, and healing. Adding these, or our other moisturizing hand creams will envelope your skin with nourishment.

6. Turn Down The Water Temperature
You might be temped to blast the hot water during your winter showers, but did you know that extra hot water can have a drying effect on your hair and skin? If you're struggling with dry and itchy skin, dry turning down the water temperate and see if it helps!
7. Use A Humidifier
If you're going to be indoors most of the winter, chances are, your air is going to be stale and dry. If your skin and scalp feel dry and itchy, you might need to add more moisture to the air. The ideal setting for winter is between 30% and 50% humidity.
8. Use a Daily Body Moisturizing After You Shower
This might be part of your year round routine, but it is especially important during the winter months. After getting out of the shower and drying off, try immediately applying a body butter or moisturizer. If you struggle with dry & itchy skin in the winter, you will notice an almost immediate improvement by adding this to your routine.
