Help keep that winter skin glowing with some all natural skincare routines!

23 Oct

During the winter time, not only does the weather dry out your skin but the chaos of what’s supposed to be the happiest time of the year stresses you. In turn, this dehydration and stress leads to premature aging. Yuck. No one wants that.

So, here are a few tried and true skincare treatments that can do at home to liven up your skin, help you relax and keep looking your age (or hopefully even younger!)

Honey is a natural humectant, and it’s so great for both your hair and skin. If you select this option, make sure to always use raw or organic honey. No need to add any additional contaminants into the mix.

A simple honey hydration mask can make all the difference.
For this recipe – it’s easy.
1 soup spoon of honey (raw/organic)

Cleanse your face first, and then dampen a face towel with warm water. Heat it up in the microwave, or put it in a bowl of hot water to make it very warm. Let the towel cover the entire face for 3 minutes while you relax. Remove the towel and apply the honey mixture to the skin with a gentle spatula. Leave on for 10 minutes and then remove it with another warm towels. Apply a light moisturizer and voila! Smooth, glowing, hydrated skin.

For an amazing hair remedy (dry scalp, dry hair, lack of lustre) follow this trick:

3/4 cup aloe vera skin grade gel (I like Aloe Life’s brand – pictured) which you can get at Sprouts or online.


2 tablespoons raw or organic (or both) honey
2 drops lavender essential oil
2 drops lemon essential oil
OR: emit the essential oils

Mix together then add to dry hair at the scalp and rub into scalp. Work through the rest of your hair, and leave on for 15-20 minutes. Rinse well no need to shampoo it out or add any additional conditioner. Your hair and scalp should feel clean, shiny and flake free.

Hope you like these, and if you try them out make sure to let me know what you think!
Stay Beautiful!
