Looking to heal the appearance of your skin from changes in the season? Are you starting to see signs of aging?

Crisp cold air, low humidity, dehydration, and even hot showers affect the suppleness and hydration levels of our skin. Working from the inside out we are here to share our top tips and tricks on maintaining youthful-looking skin year-round!
“It’s often a good idea to keep it simple when it comes to beauty care, especially for people with allergies or a very sensitive complexion.”
Banish Dry Skin on your Face
Keeping your skin hydrated can boost your moisture level, reducing flare-ups and dry patches. Coconut Oil, Avocado Oil, or Jojoba Oil are only a few oils that can be used to help prevent dry flaky skin from appearing on your face. Our go-to favorite dry weather oil is a Vitamin E mix or a Squalane.
Due to the thickness of Vitamin E, Apply this right before bedtime, allowing enough time so the oil can absorb into your skin and not end up on your pillow. When shopping for Vitamin E oil look for a natural oil with just two ingredients and you can also find pure vitamin e oil and dilute it with a carrier oil! Vitamin E oils provide extra hydration and smooth out any rough patches so you will be waking up to even hydrated skin. You will find this Organic, Unscented & Handmade Vitamin E oil in our night care routine!
Squalene VS. Squalane
While Squalene with an “e” is naturally produced by our bodies the limit decreases as we age. In comes, Squalane with an “a” which is plant-derived and has anti-inflammatory properties, so it can heal and soothe a variety of inflammatory skin problems. You will find Lightweight Squalane serums and oils in our night care routine such as The Ordinary & Biossance!
