Top 8 Tips For Winter Skincare

We are enjoying an amazingly mild November here in Wisconsin. I’m loving every minute – I feel like we’re squeezing just that last little drop of summer out of the season!

But, at some point, winter will most definitely blow in on us – and you’ll want your skin to be ready. You spent so much time taking care of it this summer with sunscreen and the right mineral makeup, let’s continue the tradition.

Here are my best tips for taking care of your skin in the cold winter months so that you’re more than ready when that sun pops out again come June!

Top Tips for Winter Skincare

  1. Moisturize. In many parts of the country driving winds and hard temperatures outside coupled with heaters cranking the heat inside can lead to dry skin. Switch from your light summer moisturizer to a creamier, heavier lotion during the cold months. If you usually use Lemongrass Spa’s Face Creme with Botanical Extracts, I recommend trying the Ultra Hydrating Body Creme.
  2. And Moisturize Again! Only this time, add moisture from the inside! It’s easy to remember to drink lots of water in hot seasons but we still need to keep hydrated when it’s cold. Try keeping your water at room temperature instead of cold – you may find it easier to drink when you’re already cold.
  3. Shower Power. Sometimes, nothing sounds better than a hot shower when you’ve been out in the cold. But be careful – hot water can strip too much of the natural oil barrier from your skin, leaving it prone to drying out. Start with a cooler shower and increase the temps a little at a time. You’ll still feel warmer but you won’t get to those scorching highs.
  4. Scrub Gently. We know that exfoliating your skin is so good for you in so many ways. But, if your skin is already taking a beating with cold winds, go gentle on your largest organ. You might want to go from using Lemongrass Spa’s Instant Renewal Microdermabrasion Creme to the Dead Sea Facial Polish or the Pomegranate Facial Polish instead.
  5. Remember The Sunscreen. Just because you aren’t at the beach in a swimsuit doesn’t mean the can’t get what is still exposed. Many times, the reflection off the snow is enough to give you a red glow. Continue to protect your skin with LGS Sheer Minerals Makeup (SPF 15-20) and our Ocean Friendly Sunscreen Lotion.
  6. Food Fix. With less sun comes less Vitamin D. And without that D, you begin to see a host of health issues ranging from weaker bones to a depleted immune system. Eat mushrooms, cod liver oil, sardines, salmon to up your Vitamin D intake.
  7. Humid Air. I think we’re seeing a pattern of moisturizing just about everything in winter months! Moisturize the air around you by turning on a humidifier for you home. This will also save on heating costs since humid air feels warmer.
  8. Winterize Your Colors. Break out those dark lipsticks and your warmest palettes. Winter is the time to put away your bright Sheer Minerals Sassy Pink eyeshadow in favor of LGS Amaretto eyeshadow.

Exfoliation is the New Fountain of Youth

exfoliate skinGetting older is a fact of life. Looking like it doesn’t have to be!

As we age, the cell regeneration process slows down, little by little. (Which basically means, it sneaks up on us. Nice.) In our prime, our skin “turnsover” about every 30 days and brings the newer, nicer-looking skin cells to the surface regularly. This gives our skin an even tone and a beautiful glow.

When the process slows, it can leave us with uneven cell build-up in areas which makes things look patchy and rough. Those cells can also block our pores which causes them to look larger, can allow oil to build up, and can lead to blemishes or breakouts.

Thankfully, we can help rid our skin of these excess cells and get back to that beautiful, glowing skin. That’s where exfoliation comes in! Exfoliation is the process of rubbing something abrasive against the skin which helps slough off the older cells.

There are a variety of different ways to accomplish the task – from synthetic chemicals, to natural ingredients you would find in your kitchen, to mechanical methods. Don’t throw away this morning’s coffee grounds! Mix them with some coconut oil and scrub your whole body with it in the shower and voila! you’ve exfoliated your body and done your largest organ some good.

You’ll have to be a bit more careful with your face, though, and how often you do so will depend on how sensitive your skin is. Experiment with your frequency to avoid irritating your skin. I can exfoliate 2-3 times per week and my face just looks smooth and fresh. I am regularly mistaken by people I’ve just met as 8 to 10 years younger than my actual age.

At Lemongrass Spa, we primarily use three different ingredients for exfoliation. You can learn about some of the natural exfoliant ingredients at the Lemongrass Spa Products corporate website. From sugar to salt to pumice, each ingredient works absolute miracles for you face!

lemongrass spa products instant renewal microdermabrasion creme My absolute FAVORITE exfoliant is our Instant Renewal Microdermabrasion Creme. You guys! This stuff is literally like a miracle in a container! In my opinion, it is the most abrasive exfoliant that Lemongrass Spa sells and it really gets through that layer of dead skin to reveal the freshness underneath.
lemongrass spa products dead sea facial polish As far as levels of exfoliation go, our Dead Sea Facial Polish is one level less abrasive than the Microdermabrasion. This is a salt based product that also includes willow bark extract and citrus oils to promote healthy skin.

I would consider this to be the least abrasive exfoliant – a good place to start if you are concerned about irritating your skin. When I first started with LGS, I had a few sunspots on my face. Between the Pomegranate Facial Polish and the Organic Anti Aging Oil Serum, many of them disappeared!
