The Eco Hub - Winter Skincare tips

Good skin comes in all shapes and sizes and if you want to reveal your best skin ever, look for products that are packed with these supernatural ingredients.

The holidays are upon us and in most cases, all of us will eat and drink way too much sugar, salt, and fat. These type of foods can wreak havoc on our skin. Indulging once in a while is fine but when you live in a cold climate you also have forced dry indoor air, the wind, colder temps and less humidity to contend with, all of which pull the moisture from the skin. You may think a hot shower will do the trick, think again, hot water makes your skin drier, a lukewarm, shorter shower is better in the winter months.

If you want your skin to glow this holiday season, here are a few tips and products that will do the trick, beautifully.

Shea Butter

Shea Butter and Lavender

Shea Butter is nut oil that nourishes the skin. It is full of vitamin A, E and F. Vitamin F is a natural anti-aging agent and along with the other vitamins makes it a great moisturizer your face and body. It retains your skin’s natural moisture.

Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera Gel is a natural antiseptic that contains 75 nutrients, 20 minerals, 12 vitamins and 18 amino acids. It supplies oxygen to the skin, which increases your skin’s strength, hydrates and makes your skin more flexible. Aloe Vera is great to use on the whole body.
