The temperature is beginning to drop, which can cause your skin to dry out and lose some of its natural moisture. Your skin can become dehydrated and irritated. Here are some simple ways to transition your skin into this colder season.
These tips will leave your skin glowing like it is still summer time!
1. Exfoliate, Exfoliate, Exfoliate!
If the chilly weather is causing your skin to dry out there is nothing that will bring you more relief than exfoliating. Exfoliating will get rid of dead skin and reduced irritation.
Try this DIY recipe:
2 Tablespoons of La Lune Naturals Fractionated Coconut Oil
1/2 cup of used or fresh ground coffee
1/4 cup of Brown sugar (for increased exfoliation)
mix together ingredients and apply daily to affected areas for best results.
2. Keep Your Skin Hydrated
The best way to keep the moisturize locked into your skin is by using an oil-based moisturizer. Our favorite is our Fractionated Coconut Oil! Our 100% Natural Fractionated Coconut Oil is purified to contain only the shortest chains of Capric and Caprylic Acid so you get the cleanest and purest product possible. It is hypoallergenic and will not irritate sensitive skin. It is the perfect way to bring your dry skin back to life.
It’s also important to drink lots of water during the colder months! Staying hydrated on the inside will help your skin stay hydrated as well.
3. Don’t Put Away That Sunscreen
It is easy to forget this step when the sun isn’t shining. Even when the sun isn’t out it is still important to include sunscreen in your daily routine. UV protection is a year round commitment! The sun’s harsh rays can be even stronger in the colder months than they are in the summer.
Here is a quick + easy DIY sunscreen recipe:
8 oz lotion
1. Put on protective gloves and mask to avoid inhaling the zinc oxide powder.
2. Measure 8 oz. of lotion into your bowl.
3. Measure zinc oxide. For an SPF of 12 to 19, measure out 1.2 to 1.5 oz. of zinc oxide. For an SPF higher than 20, measure out 2 oz. of zinc oxide.
4. Add the zinc oxide to the lotion in the bowl. Use a spoon or a hand mixer to thoroughly incorporate the zinc oxide into the lotion.
