Once again it’s that time of the year when first in the morning you smell crisp chill in the air. And you know without a doubt that winter is just around the corner. Soon, the snowflakes, cosy fireplace and hot chocolate will bring along the magic of winter. But winter times also bring drawbacks, especially when it comes to the health of your skin. Harsh winter weather can be damaging on your skin – cold, dry air can make your skin dry, itchy, red, and irritated. So, with the approaching winter, the way you take care of yourself needs to change, too. There are many simple ways to keep in mind when it comes to effective winter skincare so that you can feel your best all winter, including some easy changes to your everyday routine. You don’t need to switch up your whole skincare routine, instead supplement it with products that can provide extra hydration and nourishment. Check out the list of our brilliant hemp and CBD oil-based skincare products that will keep your skin healthy, happy and glowing through the whole winter.
Choose a cleanser carefully
Skin irritation can increase along with dryness in colder weather. During the winter months, choose kinder, gentler cleansers that hydrate your skin. You want to avoid the products that contain ingredients such as harsh chemicals and alcohol which can be damaging rather than nourishing. Choose the one which will help keep the moisture in, while still taking off the day’s dirt and make-up. Our choice – gentle and restorative BeautyOrgazm Hemp and CBD cleansing and toning facial lotion. It contains precious organic Cannabis Sativa extracts and pure natural Sicily Sweet Orange essential oil. These ingredients visibly reduce skin redness and provide the skin with relief from discomfort. With Sunflower oil, organic Aloe Vera, Lavender hydrolat, it will not just cleanse, but simultaneously tone face skin, preparing and optimizing complexion to better absorb the active principles of face cream or serum.
After cleansing, don’t leave the skin without moisturizer for too long, as this can dehydrate it, leading to increased dryness. Make sure you moisturize every morning, especially if you are going outside, to prevent your skin from becoming dry and flaky. Don’t forget to apply moisturizer at night to treat your skin while you sleep. Award your skin with the finest natural combination of ingredients which you can find in the pack of BeautyOrgazm’s hemp and CBD anti-aging compacting face cream. Infused with CBD and Hemp seed oil, this face cream provides continuous moisture through the day, replenishes essential nutrients and leaves your skin softer than ever. Organic Aloe Vera reduces acne, Shea Butter fights aging, Avocado oil nourishes and moisturizes, Bio Argan Oil improves water retention in the skin and Marigold as natural antiseptic promotes faster healing.
Exfoliate your skin
We often forget to help the skin scrub away dry, dead cells in the winter months, especially when we experience dry, itchy skin, but there are benefits to exfoliating your skin during winter. Not only will it take off the dry, dead skin cells, but it also helps you regenerate new ones and prevent your skin from looking dull and pasty. Your skin will thank you for using natural, exfoliating scrubs like this sweet orange and lavender oil scented BeautyOrgazm scrub with hemp and sapphire sugar. It works wonders in removing impurities and restoring your skin cells. Scrub your skin with this quality exfoliant at least twice weekly during the cooler months. If your skin is especially dry, you might want to opt for three or four times.
Sweet and short showers
Although it is quite tempting to warm up by taking a hot, steamy shower especially when the temperatures fall well below zero degrees outside, experts warn that this habit will do you no good. Hot water dehydrates your body and dries out your skin by stripping it of its natural oils. Instead, use lukewarm water and a short 5-10 minutes long shower to avoid stripping as many oils away from the skin. This is a small thing that can make a big difference. But this doesn’t mean that you don’t get to have your SPA moments in the shower. Try refreshing and restorative BeautyOrgazm‘s bath and shower gel with hemp and CBD oils. It contains all the magical ingredients that counterbalance the hydration loss and boost your skin with a dewy hydrated glow. Peppermint oil with Chamomile flower extract will protect and restore the suppleness of your skin, while Sweet Orange peel oil-rich with Vitamin C will stimulate circulation. CBD and Hemp oil will reduce any redness and bring a rich source of Vitamins A, C and E. There is also Organic Aloe Vera that has the calming effect even on the most sensitive skin. Marigold with calendula extract stimulates collagen boosting and reduces dry skin. On top of that, this wondrous shower gel doesn’t just boost your skin but also all your senses as it alleviates tiredness and promotes relaxation on a physical and emotional level.
As well as looking after the skin on your face, don’t forget to use body butter on the skin on your body to prevent that skin from drying out. In winter your skin not only needs more moisture but moisture right after you wash. It doesn’t need quite as much attention as the skin on your face as it’s not often exposed, but it will still need more care than it gets in the warmer months. For best results apply lotion head to toe right after a shower, when your pores are open wide to lock in as much moisture as possible. We recommend BeautyOrgazm hemp and CBD energizing body cream. This heavenly body butter is a blend of organic Sunflower oil, organic Hemp oil, Olive oil fraction, pure organic Sicily Lemon essential oil, pure natural Peppermint essential oil, CBD, pure organic Eucalyptus Radiata essential oil, pure natural Patchouli Malacca essential oil, Vitamin E and Rosemary extract. By applying these ingredients to the skin you effectively boost your skins ability to hold onto greater levels of moisture, giving it new vitality and softness while keeping its elasticity.
Don’t forget your extremities
Dryer areas like hands, feet, elbows, and knees have thin skin and tend to lose moisture faster than other areas on the body. As the outdoor humidity drops, these areas of the body require heavier moisturizer. If you have extra dry skin, apply hand cream hourly and after each washing. For the smoothest skin, introduce a before sleep ritual – spread the cream on hands and feet, then wear cotton gloves and socks too so they can work their magic all night long while you are sleeping. The best in the market currently – hemp and CBD hand cream without any parabens – supports the natural regeneration of your skin and keeps it soft and smooth. CBD and cannabis sativa oil will regenerate your skin and Bio-Aloe Vera, Shea butter, bio oat extract and pure bio lemon oil are well tolerated and treat your hands soft and smooth.
For your feet, we recommend the perfect combination of care and warming organic formula. Hemp and CBD reactivating cream for cold feet warms cold and tired feet, giving quick relief and generating comfortable and relaxing warmth. Suitable especially during cold seasons and temperature changes. Thanks to the first quality ingredients, in particular, thanks to the Capsicum extract, it stimulates the peripheral nerve endings and therefore it increases the blood supply in the areas of the application causing a sensation of warmth on the skin.
Give your hair the right treatment
Weather changes don’t only affect our skin but our hair, too. In winter months hair goes dry and brittle, and it requires more care than at other periods of the year. Adapt your winter hair care regimen by opting for a shampoo that helps your hair be strong and healthy during cold months of the year. Our favorite is hemp and CBD gentle shampoo with organic Cannabis Sativa extracts, organic Aloe Vera, Wheat proteins, D-Panthenol, Crambe Abyssinica phytosterols, Olive oil fraction and organic Calendula flower extract. Hemp extract and CBD helps to repair hair, visibly increasing its ability to reflect light, also increasing its elasticity and thickness. Your hair will become stronger, healthier and more vital.
Also, it may be a good idea to try a hair treatment once or twice a week to help repair the effects of winter. Hemp and CBD hair serum is antistatic and illuminating. It contains 100% of natural and organic origin, it is the plant substitute for synthetic liquid crystals (silicones).
You still need SPF
Sunscreen is not just for summer. It is equally important in colder months, as UVs are constantly reaching our skin even through windows and clouds. Make sure to cover your face, neck and hands (if they are exposed), and opt for a sunscreen with at least SPF 30 protection. If you’re enjoying winter outdoor sports reapply your sunscreen every two hours. Don’t forget the spots that are easily missed such as the back of the neck, lips, ears and under the chin!
Do more for your wellbeing
Healthy skin doesn’t depend only on skin care products we use but also on how we treat our body as a whole. One of the reasons why our skin doesn’t look as healthy in winter as it does in the summer is the lack of vitamin D. Winter tiredness, caused by shorter days and a lack of sunlight throughout the day can reflect on our skin, too. In colder months we tend not to spend too much time outdoors, we are less active and we often forget to hydrate ourselves. Here are some extra tips for taking care of yourself during the coldest season of the year and how to fight off moving into hibernation mode. The best you can do to maintain your overall body health is to: get active, eat well, hydrate yourself, and sleep well. This will not only help you to look good but will prevent your skin from early signs of aging.
Stagnation and sitting seem like a natural behavior for most of us during cold times of the year. But this isn’t good for any part of your body. Regular activity and going outdoors can do wonders for our physical and mental health, even if it’s just taking a short stroll at lunch. Try to keep up your level of exercise and both your body and your skin will thank you. You will feel great and your skin will radiate a healthy glow.
Don’t underestimate the power of your diet to influence your skin! Nurturing our body from the inside will have tremendous effects on the outside as well. Keep a balanced diet and stay hydrated. Although this time of the year is tempting in increasing the amounts of sugar, caffeine and alcohol in our diets, resisting it by eating a healthy diet full of nutrients and vitamins would be the best way to keep your hair and skin from looking and feeling healthy. Try to include lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, vitamin E, and fatty oils like omega 3 and 6 fatty acids – from foods like oily fish, seeds and nuts – in your diet. Increased intake of nutritious foods, such as fish, nuts and leafy greens – helps to improve your skin’s elasticity. Make sure you’re getting enough vitamin C and zinc to support the healthy production of collagen and elastin.
It’s also important to drink enough water to keep your skin and hair hydrated from within. Tea is a wonderful substance that will keep you hydrated, healthy and cozy all at the same time. And is there a better time of the year than winter to enjoy all kinds of flavors of warming teas. You could substitute one cup of coffee a day by green tea, as caffeine is super dehydrating; recharge your energy in the afternoon in a cup of ginger and lemon tea, or relax in the evening sipping chamomile and honey tea.
All in all, embrace the most magical time of the year; give your skin the love it deserves and feel your best and confident in your skin throughout the winter season.
