Does Winter chafe your spirits as well as your skin?
By Rippan Sandhu
Winter is here again, and with it low temperatures, a significant drop in humidity, cold winds and rain, even snow and drastic changes in temperature from indoors to out, all of which has a big impact on your skin. Dry, itchy skin, chapped lips and inflammation – sound familiar?
And it’s not just a cosmetic problem. Skin is the body’s largest organ that is designed to protect our inner environment from the outer environment and it can only do its job efficiently if it is in top shape. Dry, chafed skin creates tiny fissures that can allow winter viruses to invade and set us up for winter’s chills and ills. This winter, fight back by building your immunity from the outside in!
Following a good basic skincare regime that replenishes lost moisture can help protect your skin against winter’s damaging effect. According to Ayurveda, winter is the ideal time to feed your skin the potent nutrients it needs to stay youthful and healthy. Beauty and health begin with common sense. It is as simple as eating right, getting enough beauty sleep, managing stress and following a simple, natural skincare regime.
Replenishing lost moisture is the place to start. To support skin hydration, keep heating as low as possible to avoid overly drying out the moisture in the air. Although hot water for baths and showers may be tempting, this will further strip your skin of essential oils to keep it nourished, soft and hydrated. Instead, bathe in pleasantly warm rather than hot water. The cleaners you use may also need to be richer in winter to counteract the dryness of the season.
Winter skin is very receptive to deep nourishment. This is the season to pamper your skin with rich nourishment routines, morning and evening. But be aware that what you put on your skin will be absorbed into your body. Winter, with its inherent ills and chills, is not the time to be loading up on synthetic, chemical-laden skincare products! Ayurda Oliana oil is perfect for delivering deep-layer lipid support to your skin.
