Winter weather can be a challenge for those with delicate skin. The combination of cold, dry air outside and hot, dry air inside can lead to redness, itching, flaking and irritation. This dry air can also worsen skin conditions such as rosacea, psoriasis and eczema.
Don't let winter weather take a toll on your skin. Soothe dryness and irritation with the right skincare regimen and products. Here are our tips for keeping your skin soft and supple throughout the winter season.
3 Tips for Soft, Supple Winter Skin
1. Steam + exfoliation
It may seem counterintuitive, but regular exfoliation is key to soothing itchy, dry or red skin. Exfoliating helps remove dead and flaky skin, revealing smoother, softer skin underneath. Additionally, it allows for better absorption of vitamins, minerals and moisture from skincare products.
We recommend using a gentle exfoliant that won't cause irritation, such as Camel Milk Regenerating Face Exfoliator. Its round crushed almond shells and apricot kernels roll gently across your skin, removing dead cells without causing irritation.
For even better results, try steaming your skin before exfoliating. This can be done by using Face Exfoliator in or after a hot shower, placing a warm, wet washcloth on your face or hanging your head over a bowl of steaming water for several minutes.
Apply a small amount of Face Exfoliator and massage gently for 1-2 minutes onto face and neck . After 2 minutes, rinse it off and reveal softer, smoother, brighter skin.
2. Moisturize while skin is still slightly wet
Winter weather can quickly dry out your skin, leaving it feeling tight, itchy and uncomfortable. To combat this, it's essential to keep your skin moisturized. One effective way to do this is to apply a moisturizer while your skin is still slightly wet after showering or washing.
We recommend using Camel Milk Body Butter - a thick, all-natural moisturizer that contains nutrient-rich ingredients such as almond oil, beeswax and shea butter. This unique combination helps to form a natural barrier that locks in moisture and prevents further loss.
Camel Milk Body Butter will soothe and soften rough, chapped skin. To get the best results, apply it to slightly damp skin after showering or washing. This will help seal in moisture and prevent dry, cracked or flaky skin during the harsh winter months.
3. don't neglect your feet
While we often pay attention to our face and skin, our feet can often be overlooked. They are often the most neglected part of our body, despite being the foundation that supports us. We take time to pamper and care for our skin and hair, but neglecting our feet can lead to dry, flaky skin, dead cells, and cracked heels. These cracked heels not only look unappealing, but they can also cause serious pain, especially during the winter.
When it comes to taking care of your feet, choosing the right foot cream is crucial. Simply applying petroleum jelly to cracked heels may provide temporary hydration, but it doesn't address the root cause of the problem. To effectively heal and repair cracked heels, it's important to choose a foot cream that has antimicrobial and antibacterial properties.
Camel Milk Foot Cream contains high percentage of camel milk and tea tree oil which have both antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. It also includes shea butter for hydration and aloe vera and calendula, known for their antiseptic and anti-inflammatory actions. Regular use of this cream can not only soften your heels, but also help heal cracks.
These three tips will help keep your skin soft and supple no matter what winter brings.
