You may have noticed the condition of your skin changing with the seasons; many people find they get dry, stressed, blotchy and flaky skin during the colder, Winter months. This is perfectly natural, with the loss of humidity our body is working harder than ever to keep us warm and healthy, which means our skin can be one of the last organs to receive the hydration it requires. In finding the right body product for you, you can supplement your skin with the nutrients needed to get body beautiful in time for Spring.
Our skin is a resilient armour for our precious inner organs, but it does need some TLC to stay healthy and strong. Since it absorbs about sixty percent of what is applied to it, it's essential we use high-quality, natural plant extracts and formulas to treat common Winter skin conditions like eczema, rosacea and dehydration. Pure aromatic blends are Mother Nature’s ancient remedy to heal skin in a healthy, gentle way. Below we reveal some of our fave natural beauty products that will keep your body looking and feeling beautiful this Winter.
