Winter skincare: tips, tricks and essentials

Posted by Angela - Naturally Safe Cosmetics on 9th May 2016

The onset of the winter months in Australia calls for a skincare routine that's a little more heavy-duty than the previous warmer months.

Skin can dry out and become dehydrated easily, and the sunkissed glow of summer skin is slowly disappearing, often leaving a pasty, dull complexion. Organic and natural skincare products ensure that your skin is getting the extra nourishment it needs, whilst ensuring that you aren't putting any nasty additives or chemicals into it.

To make sure that your skin makes it through a chilly winter without any hiccups, we've got the best tips, tricks and essentials to hydrate, soothe and protect your skin from the elements - as well as giving you a much-needed complexion boost.Winter Skincare: Tips, Tricks & Essentials

Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise

We can't emphasise enough how important a moisturiser is in any daily skincare routine - regardless of the season. In winter, however, moisturiser becomes one of the most essential products in your beauty cabinet, and a heavier-than-usual, natural one is mandatory.

The Mukti Hydrating Moisturiser is the perfect winter skincare addition. It provides an added level of hydration to the upper skin layers, is suited to normal to dry skin and is made from only the best organic, native extracts, including Kakadu Plum - packed with Vitamin C - and pomegranate, a powerful anti-oxidant.

It's also suited to everyday use so you will get even more bang for your skincare buck.

Treat yourself

A reliable and hard-working cleanser, toner and moisturiser is a given for great daily skincare. Once or twice a week, however, it's just as important to treat your skin with an organic and natural serum, oil or treatment to give it a serious detoxification. In the frosty winter months, your skin is naturally more dry and lifeless, and needs extra TLC.

The La Mav Intense Moisture Nightly Repair Nectar does the hard work treating your skin - all while you sleep the day away.

Rich in nutrients, this nectar locks in moisture, reduces redness and gives your skin a glow it's been lacking. The best part is that it works while you sleep, giving you maximum hydration overnight.

Get some colour again - the safe way

Everyone feels more confident, healthy and happy with a tan. We all know the dangers of sun damage, especially in Australia, and the market is full of fake tan alternatives. Many of these, however, are jam-packed with harmful chemicals, so a natural, organic option is a must for winter.

The Eco Tan Certified Organic Winter Skin says it all on the label. This daily moisturiser slowly builds up to a glowing tan after just a handful of applications, and is a great gradual tanning option to make sure you get your colouring just right. Available in a travel-friendly sized tube, this tanning moisturiser is made with natural Cacao Fruit Powder, which is aimed at giving the skin a more natural-looking tan than those orange-based ones on the market. It's also made with Aloe Vera Leaf Juice to hydrate and rose-flower.

No matter what your winter skincare needs are, or your skin type, we have the safest organic products on the market to keep you looking vibrant and healthy throughout winter.
