The combination of freezing temperatures and central heating can play havoc with our skin at this time of year.
So it's important that we make sure we give our skin just a little TLC as we make our way through the winter months.
Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise!
Top of the list of things to do to keep your skin well this winter is...moisturise! Pay special attention to this part of your skincare routine to minimise the risk of dry skin patches.
A gentle cleanser, like the Rose Petals Beauty Fantastic Face Cleanser, can also help.
Yes, you should exfoliate
Some of us may actively avoid exfoliating during the winter months, as the mixture of chilly weather and heating has left us feeling dry and flaky, so why would we want to irritate our delicate skin further?
But it is important to remove all that dead skin because it prevents our skin from fully absorbing all the mosituriser that we need to apply to combat winter dryness.
The Rose Petals Beauty own-brand Lucious Lavender Scrub contains ground almonds and olive kernels which will help rid you of that problem dead skin.
Don't crack up
Lips are prone to drying and cracking in cold weather, so it's important to keep them hydrated. There are a number of natural remedies for chapped lips that you can try to soothe and moisturise chapped lips, including aloe vera, coconut oil and honey. All have antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties, which can help prevent infection.
Keeping hydrated is a must. Around eight glasses of water a day is the recommended amount to keep the skin hydrated, helping it look more healthy and hopefully result in fewer wrinkles. So don't forget to keep your fluids up, even in the cold weather!
