How to Stay Healthy With the Help of Your Skin Care Regime

26 November, 2015 | posted by Carly Poore

Skin is the body’s first line of defence and caring for it can help you stay healthy during cold and flu season. In addition to a healthy diet, getting plenty of rest and frequent hand washing, incorporate these steps into your skin care regime.

Give the body a boost of hydration
Help maintain healthy-looking skin by using a super-hydrating lotion formulated specifically for arms, legs, hands and feet. Proper hydration will help prevent cracking in the outer layer of the skin to allow it to do what it was created for—protect us from the outside world, including infection. Try Renewal Enriched Body Lotion for daily maintenance, and for very dry skin apply Extreme Barrier Cream for maximum hydration.

Use this cleanser in a new way
If you develop patches of dry skin on your arms or legs, try washing with Milky Lotion Cleanser in the shower to soften and hydrate. Your skin will feel slightly-moisturised even after drying off and help relieve dry, itchy skin.

Lock in moisture 
A spritz of Cucumber, Marshmallow and Grape Seed Extract in Balancing Toner refreshes and calms dry skin all over the body. The spray easily reaches the back and legs for added hydration. Humectants help keep moisture in skin and helps reduce redness that can flare up in the winter.

Help your hands
One of the biggest skin care complaints in the cold is dry hands. Frequent hand washing and constant exposure to the elements can zap moisture and lead to the visible appearance of skin ageing. To restore softness and help improve visible signs of ageing, apply Restorative Hand Cream several times a day.
