Winter and Dry Skin

Winter’s extreme weather can cause the skin on your face, body, hands, and feet to dry out. Cold weather slows the function of your sebaceous oil glands so they produce less oil, leaving your skin less protected and less able to efficiently retain moisture. And in winter, your skin is exposed not only to low temperatures, wind, and dry air outdoors but also to warm, artificially heated air indoors. Both make your skin thirsty.

External Care:

Moisturize your face and entire body with nutrient-rich oils. Almond and grape seed oil are the quickest fixes for dry skin. They soak into your skin faster than creamy moisturizers. If your skin is extra dry and rough, go for a thicker oil such as avocado. If you’re prone to breakouts, try jojoba oil.

Supplements:

Vitamin E: A powerful antioxidant and is a deep Moisturizer for your skin. Vitamin E is also known for its ability to diminish the appearance of scars. Recommended daily dose of Vitamin E is 400IU.

GLA: Our skin needs an essential fatty acid called GLA to Glow and We need to get it from food. The main source of GLA is Borage oil or evening prime rose oil.  GLA builds better, more beautiful skin from the inside out. In one study researchers had women take GLA oil supplements orally and in less than 60 days, their skin was not losing as much moisture. And over a third of those who started the study with skin rashes and irritation had none.

GLA oil reduced dry skin and made their skin glow. Make sure your GLA oil supplement delivers a high amount of GLA (500mg per serving).
