Moisture...The Cure for What Ails You.

I've recently had a lot of questions from people about how to deal with overly dry skin this time of year. The dry air inside and the harsh winter winds blowing outside can wreak havoc on our skin and hair. My suggestion is always to look closely at the products you are using, the way you are using them and also to consider switching up your routine as the seasons change. Also, something else to consider is... just because it's cold outside doesn't mean you need to stop hydrating inside by continuing to drink enough water daily. Our skin and hair can get pretty parched in the winter months and needs just as much if not more hydration than ever.
Be gentle to your skin and hair. Use products that have more natural based ingredients and stay away from as many chemically based products as you can. Here is a regimen that I use, especially when I feel my skin is letting me know I need to take a break. I make chamomile tea! Now chamomile is great to drink but this regime calls for putting it on your face! Bring a cup of distilled water to boil as you would if you were making a cup of tea. You can use loose tea and a strainer if you'd like, but I use organic tea bags. After your water boils, add your tea bag and let it steep for a few minutes. Remove bag and let the tea cool. Pour cooled chamomile in a clean bottle large enough to hold 40z. of liquid or more. Next, mix about a 1/4 teaspoon of jojoba oil (which is closest to our own sebum)with 6 drops of lavender, 4 drops of tea tree and 3 drops of rosemary essential oils. Shake well. Instead of washing your face in the morning, add a few drops of your chamomile toner to a cotton ball and apply to your face. This is a great cleanser and toner in one. The jojoba oil helps to cleanse and moisturize, the essentials impart their amazing astringent and antiseptic and calming benefits, and chamomile has been said to reduce inflammation, help fight acne and other blemishes
and calm the skin as well. Use this in the morning instead of soap (Ugggg... hope you're not using soap!) or whatever you've been using. Because skin gets more abuse from being outdoors and all the other things it goes through during the day use your regular cleanser before bed but after, follow up with a wipe of your chamomile solution before you moisturize. Hey... It works for me! Here's hoping it works for you as well! Let me know. Till next time as always and in always... Be You... Do You... Love You!
