Winter skin is tough to care for--the season's freezing temps can wreak havoc on your beauty routine, leaving your skin feeling rough, dry, and itchy instead of moisturized and soft. Other than the basic tenets to protect your skin from the elements, it's smart to keep a few easy DIY skin tricks in your mind to battle rough winter skin after it starts.
A great place to start? Essential oils, which are low-cost and easy to use for some at-home pampering. As a bonus, the oils come in a variety of aromatic scents that can help you de-stress while you freshen your skin after a long day in the cold.
Here are our favorite ways to improve our enhance our beauty routines for winter--and relax and unwind while we're at it!
Refresh and say goodbye to that "blah" feeling
One great way to revitalize your skin is to use your essential oil in a roll-on stick for an easy, rejuvenating massage. We love Nature's Truth Peppermint Essential Oil Roll-On to give us a boost whenever our skin is feeling down in the dumps. Plus, it's much more convenient (and less time-consuming) than booking an appointment with the spa. And if you're feeling creative, you can even DIY your own mix.
Cool down irritated or inflamed skin
Dryness and itchiness on your skin can be irritating or even downright painful. That's why we love using our essential oils in a cream or lotion to help moisturize and soften our arms and legs up. For instance, Nature's Truth has a Lavender Essential Oil Cream. The luxurious scent will help calm your skin--and your nerves along with it.
Energize your body AND your mind
Your skin may already look great, but that won't help your mood if the cold weather is giving you the old winter blues. Add some pep in your step by putting your favorite essential oils (whatever scent you prefer) in a diffuser to brighten up any room you walk inside.
