As the weather continues to get colder, it is even more important to pay attention to your skin’s needs. Dehydration and chapped lips can be kept away by choosing products that can better protect you from the cold. It is a good idea to use an organic product line that is free of harsh chemicals and preservatives that can be damaging to your skin. At Balans, we use MARIA ÅKERBERG Deepskin Organics from Sweden.
Hydration is essential for a healthy complexion. Due to dropping temperatures outside and having to crank the heat indoors, many people experience flaky skin and dry lips in the Winter. This time of year, it is helpful to use a thicker moisturizer. For sensitive and dry skin try Face Protection by MARIA ÅKERBERG. It contains chamomile which is soothing and can help heal dry patches. They also have an amazing vanilla lip balm that helps keep lips soft and supple, Lip Care Vanilla.
If you are not already using facial oils, balms and masks, now is the time to start! Facial oils help maintain balance and restore your skin’s natural production of oil. Balms also deliver the healing properties of essential oils to treat your skin but are thick so I prefer to use them at night. Masks are also a great way to deliver healing ingredients directly to your skin. There are many to choose from, so look for ones high in antioxidants. Some products from this line that work particularly well during winter months are Olive Cleansing, Royal Facial Oil Rose, Face Balm Neroli and their Eye Balm.
These products can be purchased in the online store at http://www.bostonbalans.com, or you can call Balans at 617-450-8333 to schedule a facial and I will customize a routine for you.
