5 Tips for Natural Winter Skincare
Winter can be hard on our skin! The dry air, lack of sun, and harsh winds can all contribute to dull-looking skin. Luckily, there are some natural products and alternatives that can help you achieve glowing winter skin without using harsh chemicals or products. Our natural honeybee-based skincare products use the honeybee's healing properties to nourish and rejuvenate your skin while protecting it from the elements. Take a look at our favorite 6 tips for achieving glowing winter skin naturally!
Tip #1: Use Oils Over Lotions
When it comes to moisturizing in the wintertime, oils are always better than lotions. Lotions are made from water-based ingredients and evaporate quickly from the skin without providing many benefits. On the other hand, oils penetrate deeper into the skin due to their lipid-based ingredients. This means that oils provide longer-lasting hydration for your skin throughout the day. Plus, there are plenty of natural oil options, such as almond oil, jojoba oil, coconut oil, rosehip oil, calendula oil, and more! Keepers Collective offers pure honeybee skincare rich in these natural oils that will help lock in moisture and keep your skin supple and silky all day.
Tip #2 – Hydrate Your Skin
During the winter months, it is essential to hydrate your skin. Keepers Collective products are formulated with ingredients such as honey, propolis, royal jelly, and beeswax, which all have great hydrating properties as well as anti-inflammatory and antibacterial benefits that will help keep your skin hydrated throughout the day by locking in moisture, leaving your skin feeling soft and supple all day long.
Tip #3: Increase Your Water Intake
It may seem obvious, but many people forget how important drinking plenty of water is for keeping their overall health in check - including their skin health! Increasing your water intake not only helps flush out toxins from within but also ensures that our bodies stay hydrated, which helps reduce signs of aging, such as wrinkles & fine lines while keeping our complexion looking healthy & vibrant even during the coldest months of the year!
Tip #4: Exfoliate Regularly
Winter weather can often lead to dryness and dullness of skin due to increased levels of humidity indoors combined with cold temperatures outdoors. To combat this problem requires regular exfoliation so that dead cells are removed, allowing new ones to come through, and giving your skin a brightened look. Additionally, exfoliating regularly helps remove built-up dirt, which can clog pores and lead to breakouts or acne flare-ups, common during winter months when humidity levels are high inside homes due to heating systems being used consistently throughout the season. Try using scrubs products with ingredients like sugar or oats mixed with natural butters such as shea butter or cocoa butter for a gentle yet effective exfoliant that won't strip away precious moisture from your already dry winter skin while simultaneously cleaning out deeply rooted impurities from within your pores leaving you feeling refreshed and energized after each use! Keepers Collective offers a variety of full-body and facial scrubs made with natural ingredients that are perfect for any sensitive winter complexion!
Tip #5 Protect Your Skin from the Elements
The cold temperatures and harsh winter winds can be rough on our delicate facial skin, so it’s important to protect it from the elements whenever possible. Keepers Collective has you covered with their signature Keepers Secret Salve, made with nourishing ingredients like calendula-infused avocado oil, propolis, royal jelly beeswax, and even pollen! This product will provide a barrier between your face and the cold weather while still allowing your pores to breathe freely. It’s perfect for those days when you’re out running errands in freezing temperatures but want to avoid looking “windburned” when you come home!
