Winter Skin Care Tips

Keep your skin healthy

It's wintertime and the livin' ain't easy -- for our hair, skin and nails, that is. Whipping winds, dry air and chilly temperatures can really do a number on soft skin and hair. Cold air outside and central heat indoors can strip moisture from strands and pores, making hair rough and skin itchy and dry.

The Need-to-Know
Cracked, flaky, irritated or inflamed skin is normal during winter, though it's not exactly fun. If red, scaly, itchy skin lingers or is causing serious discomfort, be sure to visit a doctor.

There are a few strategies that can give the body a break when the mercury plunges:

A 20-minute long, boiling-hot shower might feel great on a cold day, but stick to warm or lukewarm water for 10 minutes or less. Long exposure to hot water can strip moisture from hair and skin.
At the grocery store, fill up a cart with foods full of healthy monounsaturated fats and omega-3 fatty acids, such as fish, nuts, olive oil, flax, sardines and avocados.
While at the market, load up on vitamin C-rich produce like citrus fruit and dark leafy greens. Vitamin C can help boost the body's production of collagen, a protein that maintains skin and other connective tissues.
It's a good idea to drink plenty of water during winter with lemon.

1. Dry Skin
To cure dry skin all over the body, we recommend to use a Dermalogica- Intensive moisture balance cream ultra-rich and hydrating moisturizer for dry skin, or SkinCeuticals - B5 mask and hydrating B5 gel they are enrich with vitamin B5. During winter, avoid any face products with alcohol and switch to a milder face wash and a thicker moisturizer. For the body we believe natural ingredients can be nourishing and powerful when formulated correctly, hydrating body butter Lalicious rejuvenate dry skin key ingredients: shea butter, lavender, safflower oil, chamomile & cucumber extracts.


2. Itchy Dry Scalp & Hair

 Dry, flaky scalp is uncomfortable and just a wee bit embarrassing, too. Step one in preventing dandruff is to take cooler, quicker showers to reduce the scalp's exposure to drying hot water. Think about switching to a dandruff or dry scalp specific shampoo. Before hopping in the shower, massage the scalp with Vitamin E, olive or coconut oil. These oils replenish natural scalp oils and can moisturize dry hair, too.  Wash the hair and scalp with Pureology - Hydrate shampoo and conditioner to cure a dry hair. Sometimes, the issue can be caused by product build-up — not winter weather. If you think this may be the case, rinse the hair with apple cider vinegar to clear out the gunk and then wash normally with shampoo.

.

3. Rough Hair
 Everyone's hair is different -- if washing once or twice a week is normal for you, consider adding some time between shampoos to take dry winter conditions into account. And don't skip the hair mask use once a week  for 30 minutes L’oreal - Mythic Oil mask for all hair types. To prevent breakage or other damage, avoid blow-drying and brushing hair when wet because those locks are most delicate when waterlogged. If strands are really parched, comb hair with a few drops of olive oil and a wide-tooth comb after showering..

4. Rough And Cracked Feet

Nothing screams “dead of winter” like gnarly, callused feet with cracked heels. Book a pedicure with Pure Salon & Spa or stop by and purchase  a Baby Foot for soft and smooth feet (Lavender scented) made with natural plant and fruit extracts. At home scrub calluses with a pumice stone in the shower once per week to slough off rough, dead skin. Moisturize feet, especially the heels, every day with thick cream -- lotions containing lactic acid are especially effective -- and wear cotton socks to bed.

Giva a Voluspa Candle gift and show you care!

Great gift for any candle lover

Voluspa Candles will provide you with the ultimate fragrance luxury. From the moment you illuminate one you will notice why these candles are made from the purest high grade ingredients. The fragrance comes through perfectly, lingering in the air even after the candle has been extinguished. And because of the high quality of the ingredients, the fragrances are pure, clean and refreshing. Once you've burned Voluspa Candles, you may not want to burn anything else

In the myth of ancient mythology, Voluspa means "goddess of wisdom” and to experience Voluspa Candles is to indulge oneself with luxurious fragrances that delight all of the senses. Creating the perfect gift was the original goal, but the candles soon became one of the first choices in candles for many, including celebrities such as Katherine Heigl, Jessica Simpson, Nick Verreos, Kevin Zegers, Scarlett Johansson, Halle Berry. Kevin Sorbo, Nicole Eggert, Paula Abdul, Tori Spelling and Steven Speilberg. Voluspa is known for having top quality waxes and fragrances, but now they have out-shined themselves with some amazing new candles and a new wax that yields even richer fragrances and exhibits a more even burn.

The founders of Voluspa, Troy and Traci Arntsen, met when Troy was hired on as Traci’s boss at an essentials company where she was employed in 1999. There was an immediate attraction between them that blossomed quickly. Before long, Troy and Traci had left their jobs and started a highly successful company that came into play after Troy and Traci made their first scented candle in their own kitchen. They are now married and recently became the proud parents of a baby girl.

Through Troy’s engineering technical background and Traci’s knowledge of botany, along with her passion for tantalizing aromas, the two have made a name for themselves among the candle and fragrance industry. They recently created a creamy coconut base wax combined with soy and apricot that enhances fragrances, leaves a lasting scent for days, produces an extraordinary glow and burns more evenly and longer than even soy based waxes. Inspired by traditional candle-making formulas, Voluspa spent a lot of time mastering their unique new blend of wax and are one of the first in the industry to use coconut wax in candles.

Voluspa Candles can be found in the most prestigious shops around the world and this includes the three newer Maison lines that are both unique and familiar: Blanc, Noir and Rouge. Each of these lines consist of brand new scents along with some of the more popular scents that were already exclusive in the realm of home fragrance.

Spring/summer news

Introducing a NEW Self Tan for Face

ST.TROPEZ INTRODUCES A NEW TANNING SYSTEM FOR THE FACE – WITH NATURAL, GLOWING RESULTS

NEW St.Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Lotion Face has been specifically developed to combine St Tropez’s signature self tan with innovative skincare technology to provide the same natural looking beautiful tan you would expect from St.Tropez without drying the delicate skin on the face or blocking pores. A genius hybrid of St.Tropez’s signature self tan and an innovative skincare system, this light and easily absorbed formula delivers the intense hydration of a facial lotion with a beautiful, natural sun-kissed colour. The lightweight fluid has double benefits – not only will it absorb quickly and seamlessly into skin, but it won’t block the pores, resulting in the ultimate ultra-even, natural looking tan. Three key ingredients work in conjunction with one another to ensure luminous and radiant-looking results:

• Apricot and Almond Oil – These omega rich oils soften, condition and moisturise the skin

• Cocoa Butter – There are few ingredients more moisturising than cocoa butter and in this formula it is light-weight and super nourishing

• Hyaluronic Acid – A polysaccharide naturally present within the skin that smoothes and plumps the appearance of skin during use and keeps it intensely moisturised over 24 hours

ST.TROPEZ SELF TAN BRONZING LOTION FACE IS ALSO NON-COMODOGENIC, DERMATOLOGICALLY TESTED PARABEN FREE, AGAINST ANIMAL TESTING.

WHAT OUR EXPERT SAY:

“Multi-tasking products are an essential part of our beauty regimes and so why should tanning be any different? This ensures a beautiful natural-looking tan with exciting skincare benefits. For the best results, apply at night (being sure to remove excess from brows and the hairline) and then simply wake up with bronzed, sun-kissed skin.”

Judy Geletka, St.Tropez Tanning & Skin Finishing Expert
