Winter Skincare

Winter is a difficult time for our skin. The cold dry air makes our skin dry and dull but it doesn’t have to be that way. My skin is already quite sensitive so I like to stay away from anything with too many ingredients, chemicals, and fragrances. Here are some winter skincare products I love which help to keep skin looking and feeling great during the colder months!

Body Choice exfoliating sponge

I’ve been using this exfoliating sponge from Body Choice now for a few weeks. It can be used for dry brushing or an in shower/bath sponge. I prefer using it with water because I feel it’s too harsh when used dry and on dry skin. It is an excellent exfoliator and I like it so much that I feel like I wont ever buy a body scrub again. It doesn’t feel soft like a normal sponge. It feels like it’s made of plastic. It has kept its shape and it’s easy to clean.

  • Improves Skin Tone & Texture
  • Ideal For Pre-treatment Preparation
  • Long Lasting & Completly Hygenic

I love the Beaucience brand because they don’t use lots of chemicals in their products. Essential oils are used to lightly fragrance the product. They only use natural preservatives. It is environmentally friendly and not tested on animals. The brand is proudly South African. This body butter feels luxurious and it is fragranced with¬†essential oils of neroli, geranium and ylang ylang. I prefer to use a body butter only once a week usually after I exfoliate using the body choice sponge. It absorbs easily and doesn’t leave a residue on your skin.

The Bee Natural brand has a body care product range that is 100% pure and natural. Their products contain no lanolin, petroleum, aqueous cream, chemicals, colourants, castor oil, perfumes or preservatives.¬† I’ve taken to using this product the way I would use normal vaseline. I use it for everything and more! It can be used on the face and body. It helps soothe dry and cracked skin, stings, bites, burns, pimples, eczema, etc. It contains beeswax, avocado oil, and raw honey which makes it a good healing balm. I like using it on my face after exfoliating. I also use it in my joints where I am prone to eczema. The product is quite hard so you can use it in a number of ways. If you want to use a little bit then rub your finger around on the product to get some off. Your body heat will help. If you want to use a bit more, then you can pinch some out and warm it between your palms until its like an oil in your hand and then apply where you need it.

Discover the ancient healing, beautifying and preserving power of beeswax, raw honey, pollen and propolis which are blended together with cold pressed avocado oil and sunflower oil to make up our unique, totally natural range of products that have powerful healing and beautifying properties.

I got this lip balm free when I bought the Head 2 Toe Balm. My lips get chapped so easily in the cold air. I like to use it before bed but it’s alright to use for day time as well since it has carrot oil as a natural UV protection. It’s nice balm thin that keeps my lips smooth. It’s not greasy or gunky and it’s quite hard so it will last a long time.
