Sometimes we forget what an impact winter weather can have on our skin. It’s so exciting to have sunshine, fresh air and chirping birds that we let our skin care regimen slide. In spring time, we should focus on supporting our skin in its transition from the cold of winter, boosting nutrients and helping it renew. SeabuckWonders products are the best way for you to support your skin and overall health this spring.
Sometimes we need to help our skin shed the dead cells that accumulate on the surface. If you neglect exfoliation, dead cells actually build up and can make your skin look dull. For a fresh, dewy look, use SeabuckWonders Exfoliating Cleanser. It has jojoba esters for a natural, gentle grit that works for many different skin types.
Skin becomes oilier when temperatures rise. Depending on your skin type, you will want to transition from heavier creams and lotions to lighter, airier options. SeabuckWonders Facial Cream is one of the lightest, yet moisturizing lotions on the market today.
Every skin type can benefit from a deep moisture treatment, at least once a week. A blend of Seabuckthorn seed and berry oil is a great combination for antioxidants, skin quenching fatty acids and a whole host of vitamins and phytonutrients. First, do a gentle cleanse to open your pores. Put two drops of berry oil and two of seed oil in a glass bowl or container. Mix with a metal spoon. Use fingers to massage oils into skin, focusing on any areas that may be extra dry or have blemishes. The berry oil from sea buckthorn is orange and so the oil! Keeping this in mind, plan your deep conditioning treatment for a time when you know you are going to be at home. You can leave the oils on your face for as long as you wish but make sure they stay on for at least 30 minutes. Wash off any unabsorbed oil with a gentle cleanser and moisturize normally.
Even during winter, you should have been wearing some kind of SPF. If you didn’t during winter, start right now! Even when it’s not out in full force, the sun can do lots of damage to your skin. Sea buckthorn is an excellent addition to your already existing sunscreen or makeup products because it can protect against UV induced stress. Add a drop (really, just one drop!) of SBW berry oil to your sunscreen or put a layer of our moisturizing facial cream under your makeup.
Did you know that exercise is great for your skin? When you work out and get your heart pumping, the blood brings fresh oxygen as well and nutrients to your skin cells. It also helps carry away free radicals and helps clean out used up cellular garbage. With warmer weather, you will no doubt be yearning to get outside and play!
Boost Your Skin From the Inside Out
Many don’t realize that often, skin conditions aren't just caused by an external problem. If we are not getting enough of the nutrients our bodies need when we eat, sometimes you can start to see it on the outside too. This is especially apparent for individuals who do not get enough Omegas. Some ways to tell if you are lacking in these areas are dry hair and skin. Use of Seabuckwonders products on the inside and the outside of our body will yield the best results. Try our Omega 7 Complete caps or for a vegetarian option do our DIY Drop In Kit. All of our skin care products have are extra refreshing because they are all lightly scented with natural orange oil. They are Leaping Bunny Certified and all of our oils are USDA Organic Certified for the best quality available. Remember, small measures to take care of your skin now will yield great results in the future. Season changes are the time when we need to focus on skin the most, so take care and be beautiful friends!
