FIGHT DRY WINTER SKIN WITH AMBER BLUE’S 10 BEST BEAUTY TIPS & FREE GIVEAWAY

 

Dry indoor heat, whipping winds, and icy temperatures suck the moisture right out of skin causing it to be dry, itchy and flaky.  Dry skin causes a build-up of dead skin and your complexion becomes accentuated with fine lines and wrinkles (gasp…).

 

To overcome the conditions of wintery skin, Amber Blue has come up with 10 ways to fight dry winter skin.  We promise if you follow these classic tips, your skin will bring back its soft and supple quality and boost its collagen content.

1.  DRINK THAT WATER

Hydrate your skin from within by drinking lots of water.  Too cold?  Try an herbal tea mix (caffeine free).

2.  INVEST IN A HUMIDIFIER

Put moisture back in the air with a humidifier.  This will make its way directly to your skin too.

3.  EXFOLIATE WEEKLY

Dehydrated skin cases a build-up of dead skin; exfoliate once a week to remove build up.  Check out Amber Blue’s sugar exfoliator (it’s part of our SPA IN A BAG kit).

4.  USE AN OIL BASED MOISTURIZER

Believe it or not, many moisturizers out there can dry skin vs. hydrating skin.  Choose an oil based moisturizer like Amber Blue’s Anti-Aging Serum which is packed with 16 (yes, 16!) amazing essential oils!  Body oils are great too.  Be sure to add your oil to damp skin for maximum effectiveness.  Avoid oils that contain mineral oil or petrolatum (i.e. petroleum jelly) as they do not get absorbed by the skin; and instead create a barrier on the skin’s surface that traps moisture, but does not hydrate the skin.  Organic oils actually penetrate deep into the skin and heal the skin.

5.  ADD COCONUT OIL TO YOUR ROUTINE

Virgin organic coconut oil is highly effective for your skin.  Coconut oil fights free radical damage, due to its high levels of ferulic and p-coumaric acid, and its natural antioxidant properties keep your skin looking youthful.  Perfect for removing dryness, apply coconut oil on rough areas before bathing.

6.  USE MILD SOAPS

Use body soaps with adequate moisturizing content.  Amber Blue’s soaps are packed with natural oils and glycerin that are moisturizing for your skin.

7.  DON’T SKIP THE TONER

Way too often people dismiss toner as an unnecessary step in skincare.   Well formulated toners, like Amber Blue’s, provide AMAZING benefits for your skin.  Our toner restores and repairs the skins surface.  Organic skin toners deliver essential oils, rejuvenating elements and antioxidants straight to your skin.

8.  SPF IN THE WINTER – SAY IT AIN’T SO

Yes, even in the winter you need SPF.  It’s especially important to protect your dry skin from the wintery sun.

9.  PUT ON THAT MASK

Using a hydrating mask once a week will soften and add moisture and nutrients to your skin.  Amber Blue’s cleanser doubles as a face mask too.  Just add some lukewarm honey and VOILÀ you have a super hydrating mask!

10.  BE CHOOSEY IN YOUR MAKEUP

So you’ve done all the necessary steps to fend off the wintery skin dilemma, but now you’ve caked on toxic makeup containing all types of drying agents.  Look for makeup that is certified organic and that contains zero toxic chemicals, parabens, phalates, gluten, nano particles or irradiations!  Our favorite?  Vapour Organic Beauty.
