Winter Skin Care Tips from Seed
Last week, much of the East Coast had a weather event known as a Bomb Cyclone. On top of all of the snowfall, we had bone-chilling temperatures. Personally speaking, it was so cold here in the Rochester, New York area that nearly every school district was closed because the windchills were dangerously low for little ones to be walking to school.
You may have noticed that the frigid temperatures combined with the need to run the heat all the time have created another issue itchy, flaky, dry skin. We are sharing our best cold weather skin care tips today.
Winter Skin Care Tips
1. In the summer, you are always being told to drink lots of fluids, but did you know that it is just as important now? It's true. The cold air pulls moisture from the skin, which leaves it feeling dry. Increase your water intake.
2. Read labels and look for facial skin care products made with Hyaluronic Acid. This ingredients holds 1000 times its weight in water, which helps skin retain moisture, stay hydrated, and look plump and healthy. Our Advanced Botanicals Extra Moisturizing Face Cream is your best bet for a facial cream with Hyaluronic Acid.
3. As soon as you step out of the shower, massage a deeply hydrating body moisturizer like Seed Silky and Rich Body Cream. This cream features grape seed oil, shea butter, aloe vera, coconut oil, sunflower seed, green tea & more. These ingredients not only protect the skin, but leave it feeling smooth and supple.
3. Don't forget to care for your hands. They are especially vulnerable to the harsh elements. Quench dry skin with our antioxidant-rich Healthy Hand Cream.
