Season’s change and so does our hair and skin. Even if you live in So Cal, the change is subtle, but the drier air, indoor heating and other factors take a major toll on your glow. If you live in colder areas, the effects are even greater. Now is the time to pivot and tweak your clean routine to hold on to soft, smooth skin, vibrancy and avoid the winter hat-head, frizz bomb.
Here are a few tips to help you keep your personal-care cool in the colder months ahead.
Hydrate Inside and Out.
Your skin produces less oil in colder months so that means its time to step up the hydration inside and out. You should definitely drink more water, add lemon and sip on hot teas throughout the day. Remember, what you do on the inside, shows up on the outside. It’s also time to think about moisturizing your skin on a deeper level. It’s a good time to go from your everyday lightweight Lotion to our lush, creamy Body Butters — even if you just put it on before bed. They melt into skin with gorgeous, uplifting scents and are the perfect antidote to dry, flaky, itchy skin.
Think about going Sensitive.
If your skin is irritated from weather and other environmental factors, you may want to try one of our Sensitive Skin formulas. They keep you calm so you can carry on when your skin starts feeling flaky and itchy. Our Green Tea + Cucumber + Aloe Vera and our Almond Milk + Agave + Oatmeal Body Washes and Lotions are both clinically tested safe for sensitive skin.
Summer’s tired skin cells are hanging on. Its time kiss them goodbye and add our Sugar Scrub to your shower routine at least 2-3 x per week to gently exfoliate and reveal brighter, smoother skin. They’re full of skin-loving Cold Pressed fruit oils too, so they not only brightens, but soften and leave a protective veil of moisture — which we like to call our Sugar Scrub glow.
Our new PRO Remedy collection is a professional grade treatment line made for hair that needs extra love. Now is the time to add all five products to your arsenal so you can avoid winter frizz, dullness and breakage that comes in cooler months. Try our Reconstruct Shampoo and Conditioner, Leave-In Primer Mist, Leave-In Unbreakable Balm and even our Protective Dry Shampoo that helps, not harms your hair when you can’t fit in a wash. All are formulated specifically to protect your color investment and reconstruct and repair hair from over-styling, breakage and environmental stress.
Extra Love for Your Lips.
Remember, your lips absorb 65% of what you put on them, so keep your lip products clean. Our 95% Organic Natural Lip Balms are made with organic extracts and Cold Pressed essential oils to soften, smooth and lock in moisture. Keep them on hand all day and apply with reckless abandon. Each delicious flavor comes packaged with a pot of sugar scrub too, so you can prime lips and get rid of flakiness first.
