Winter Tips for Healthy Skin

Probably one of the most uncomfortable things about the winter season (aside from the chilling temperatures,) is battling dry skin! Thankfully, there are several ways you can save your skin from the harsh elements, leaving you with a glowing, bright complexion – no matter the climate. Here are some ultimate winter skin care tips you’ll want to begin immediately: Moisturize The moist obvious solution to dryness is using a moisturizer. However, not all are created equal ! Many products contain harmful chemicals and additives that serve to actually perpetuate skin dryness and irritation in the long run. This is why natural ingredients are important when it comes to protecting the skin’s natural barrier. For the winter time especially, you’ll want to look for enhanced concentrations of moisture building ingredients, minus the junk. The Skinfix Healthy Skin & Face Line is formulated with rich emollient oils, proteins, peptides and natural extracts that are the perfect solution to winter dryness! Each product also contains their special Healthy Skin Lipid Complex™, which is clinically proven to replenish essential skin lipids and maintain a healthy skin barrier. Stay Hydrated Adequate water consumption is essential year-round. Not only does it serve to encourage the body’s internal cleansing system, but it also provides the cells with the hydration needed to function and remain supple (of major importance for skin!). Your body is 70% water,  so you’ll want to remain optimally hydrated at all times. This will also protect against pre-mature aging, promote a smooth complexion, and encourage the removal of toxins in the body. Be sure to drink purified water – as your body cannot assimilate the minerals in hard water! Use an Oil Cleanser Some cleansers can be quite harsh and disrupt the skin’s natural barrier. For this reason, you’ll want to opt for an oil cleanser – especially during the winter months! The Skinfix Foaming Oil Cleanser is ideal since it complements the skin’s essential lipids, while gently washing away dirt and make-up, leaving the skin feeling hydrated, soft and supple. You can follow this up with the Skinfix Moisture Boost Serum and Nourishing Cream for added hydration and skin protection! Increase your Omega-3 intake Increasing dietary omega-3’s is an important step in maintaining healthy, hydrated skin. A high consumption of omega-3 fatty acids has been shown to decrease inflammation, reduce the risk of acne, prevent skin damage from free radicals, and contribute to a healthy lipid skin barrier. Great sources of these Essential Fatty acids include: Sacha Inchi oil, dark leafy greens (i.e. spinach), flax seeds and flax oil, chia seeds, and purslane.
