The dry-skin season is upon us, and winter is approaching quickly. The combination of dry air, chilly winds, and cold temperatures can significantly deplete your body's moisture levels, leading to dry, flaky, rough, or lackluster skin.
Discover effective strategies to restore hydration and rejuvenate your skin, ensuring a radiant and vibrant complexion all year round.
1. Exfoliate more
Give dry skin a radiance boost by including exfoliation in your skin care routine using a gentle product like Regenerating Face Exfoliator for your face and Exfoliating Shower Cream for your body. Both exfoliants are designed to gently exfoliate without causing cuts, abrasions, or irritation.
How often should you exfoliate? It depends on your specific skin type, the prevailing climate, and other individual factors.
But we recommend using the Face Exfoliator 3 times per week while you can use the Exfoliating Cream every day to get rid of dead skin cells, enhance the radiance of your complexion, and refine the texture of your skin.
2. Cleanse the right way
Healthy skin starts with clean skin, but it's crucial to choose a cleanser that won't strip your skin of essential moisture.
Camel Milk Face & Body Soap can be applied to both your face and body, effectively eliminating dirt and excess oil without depleting your skin's natural moisture and leave your skin fresh and glowing.
3. Moisturize right after shower or bath
Following a shower or bath, when your skin is still a little bit moist, apply a lotion or cream containing an occlusive component to lock in moisture, such as Camel Milk Body Butter or Camel Milk Body Lotion.
Camel Milk contains high concentrations of Lactic Acid which helps draw moisture and Lanolin in Camel Milk helps lock in the moisture, keeping the skin hydrated for a longer period of time. Your skin is healthier, smoother and softer.
4. Always use sun screen protection
The effects of sun damage can result in skin that becomes parched and coarse.
Year-round, protect your skin from the sun wearing a hat, long-sleeved shirts, or pants. Additionally, incorporate daily SPF protection on exposed skin to safeguard it against the harmful impact of UV rays.
5. Hydrate inside and outside
An additional easy method to maintain the softness and moisture of your skin is by running a humidifier in your home. Humidifiers elevate the level of water vapor in the air, which is subsequently absorbed by your skin.
If a whole-house humidifier isn't available, consider using a compact model in your bedroom during the night. This practice benefits both your skin and respiratory system.
Furthermore, replenish moisture from within by staying well-hydrated throughout the day, drinking a lot of water.
6. Don’t neglect your neck
Caring for your neck is an important part of a skincare routine that is sometimes overlooked. While we diligently attend to our facial skincare, our neck, an area equally susceptible to signs of aging, often goes unattended.
Camel Milk Body Butter contains shea butter, beeswax and a blend of essential oils with potent antioxidants and emollients that work together to nourish and revitalize the delicate skin on your neck. With consistent use, you can expect smoother, softer skin, ensuring that your neck receives the care it deserves, just like your face.
7. Take good care of your hands and feet
As the weather gets colder, remember to care for your hands and feet. Our Camel Milk Hand Cream is like a 'superfood' for your hands, containing Camel Milk, Shea Butter, and eight natural oils to nourish and revitalize your skin and nails.
And don't forget your feet! Our Camel Milk Foot Cream with Camel Milk, Shea Butter, and Calendula, is perfect for dry, cracked feet. It leaves your skin feeling silky soft and supple, while Citronella and tea tree oil provide a refreshing touch. Keep both your hands and feet in their best condition this winter with our naturally nutritious creams.
8. Use a high-quality moisturizer
The daily moisturizer you choose plays a significant role in maintaining the health of your skin. Opting for a natural moisturizer is a wise choice, as it reduces exposure to harmful chemicals while providing nourishment and safeguarding your skin against further moisture loss.
Both Camel Milk Body Butter and Body Lotion are crafted from uncomplicated, natural components that do more than just hydrate and nourish your skin. They also form a protective barrier, sealing in moisture to ensure enduring suppleness and softness. Make the conscious choice for your skin's well-being with Camel Milk Skincare.
9. Eat well
Autumn offers an array of nutrient-rich, delicious options, extending far beyond the beloved pumpkin. Sweet potatoes, a diverse array of squashes, colorful berries, crisp apples, and a variety of cabbages and cauliflowers are just a few of the treasures this season is offering us.
Incorporating these wholesome, natural foods into your diet can work wonders for your skin's health and contribute to a radiant, glowing complexion. It's not just about what you apply topically; it's also about what you nourish your body with from within. Plus, remember to focus on fresh, unprocessed foods rich in vitamins and minerals, as they play an important role in your skin's overall health and appearance.
10. Get enough sleep
Adequate and quality sleep is essential to maintaining healthy skin. Insufficient sleep can reduce blood flow to the skin, resulting in a lackluster, dry complexion and the appearance of dark circles around the eyes. As we age, many women find it challenging to attain enough quality sleep.
Prioritize strategies that enhance both the duration and quality of your sleep, and don't hesitate to seize opportunities for rejuvenating naps.
By implementing even just a handful of these recommendations, you can work towards restoring moisture and radiance to dry or irritated skin.
