The leaves are falling, the nights are drawing in, and you may have reached for a cosy jumper. It’s not just your wardrobe that needs changing when the temperature starts to drop. Prepare your skin for the fresher, chilly weather with our top tips:
Exfoliation is still crucial
A build-up of dead skin cells can leave your skin looking dull and make it hard for products to penetrate the layers of your skin. Give your skin a helping hand to slough away dead skin cells by exfoliating 2-3 times a week. Folli Oil’s Body Scrub leaves skin smooth and polished. The Himalayan Sea Salt purifies the pores and a blend of anti-inflammatory oils nourish the skin and prevent moisture loss.
Central heating takes its toll
It’s lovely to feel the warmth when you step indoors from the cold, but central heating is overly drying for the skin as it evaporates the moisture from the air leading to dehydrated and sensitive skin. It’s essential to keep skin moisturised from the moment you wake, try adding a few drops of Folli Oil’s Daily Treatment Oil to your body moisturiser and apply after you step out of the bath or shower to lock in moisture straight away. The nourishing oils will quickly absorb into your skin and keep your skin’s protective barrier hydrated and more comfortable.
Protect your lips
Colder weather and bracing wind can cause lips to become sore and chapped. Protect them with a lip balm made from natural waxes, butters and oils to nourish and repair. Avoid products that contain petroleum jelly as this is a by-protect from the oil industry and is incompatible with your skin. Try not to lick dry or cracked lips as this can make them worse.
Help your hands (and nails)
The skin on our hands doesn’t produce as much oil as the rest of our body, and regular hand washing (and the application of hand sanitiser) makes your hands more prone to dryness. Give your hands and nails a boost by massaging a few drops of Folli Oil’s Daily Treatment Oil into your cuticles before applying hand cream. The soothing and nourishing oils will deeply hydrate and prevent your nails from becoming brittle.
