When it starts to get chilly and you can feel winter coming, it’s time to change up your skincare routine.
What our skin needs in the spring and summer is totally different from what our skin needs in the winter. Depending on where you live, you’re likely going to be dealing with totally different weather.
With the cold, dry air and the harsh winter weather, it’s important to make the extra effort to care for your skin properly. If you can get a headstart before winter arrives, you’ll be in an even better position by being proactive and starting to uplevel your skincare before your skin starts to suffer.
Below are some winter tips for keeping your skin looking and feeling healthy.
Step Up Your Moisturizing Routine
The main thing you’re going to want to focus on as far as taking care of your skin this winter is moisture. Winter weather is cold and wet, but the air tends to be dry and our skin pays the price. It’s very common to suffer from dry skin that is itchy at best and cracked and painful at worst. But if you can start with a richer moisturizer before the real winter weather hits, you’ll be in a great position for the coldest parts of the season.
Our Oatmeal, Milk & Honey Goat Milk Whipped Body Butter is light and instantly absorbs into the skin creating a moisture barrier keeping your skin feeling great all day. This body butter is made with just four natural ingredients including organic shea butter and grape seed oil to deeply moisturize your skin.
This is especially luxurious in the winter when it’s easy for our skin to get dry and once it gets to a certain point, it takes a lot of work to get it back to feeling soft and moisturized.
The driest areas on our bodies during the winter tend to be our hands and feet. Keeping our hands and feet covered can help to protect them, especially if you moisturize regularly too.
This is especially true of our hands which tend to be out and exposed to harsh winter weather more often than other parts of our bodies. Try getting into the habit of using hand cream and wearing gloves as much as possible in order to prevent dry, cracked hands this winter.
Use A Humidifier
Dryness is the number one skin complaint in the winter. The older we get, the more we tend to be bothered by it. Investing in a good humidifier for your home can help to minimize dryness if you’re in a dry climate.
Go for a cool-mist humidifier which will help to increase the moisture level in the air. This will help keep your skin barrier hydrated and help to keep your nose and throat moist as well, if you struggle with a dry throat in the morning.
Start Using Herbal Salves
If you’re not familiar with salves, you’re going to want to get familiar this winter. Herbal healing salves are so helpful if you tend to get cracked, dry skin in the winter.
Using a herbal healing salve will allow you to heal painful, irritated skin that’s dry and doesn’t seem to be responding to extra moisture alone. In addition, you’ll have it on hand year-round and available to use for the many other benefits. Healing salves and balms are also helpful for minor burns and sunburns, hives, psoriasis, eczema, rashes, and even minor wounds like scrapes and cuts.
Hopefully you’ve found these winter tips for skin care helpful. Remember that by being proactive and caring for your skin before it starts to get dry and uncomfortable, you have a chance to keep your skin healthy and be much more comfortable all winter.

"There isn't a product they make that I don't have. I buy all their products and each one impresses me. I make sure I stay stocked on their soaps. I take their soaps with me when I travel. I just bought their lotion and it's simply amazing. Nice aromas and leaves my skin feel super moisturized without that grease feeling. I just got a candle and I love it, very soothing and relaxing scent. I will continue to buy their products until they ban me. I just received an order today and I'm already planning my next order. Simply amazing, no regrets."
