Pia's top tips to protect your skin from the elements this winterBLOG POST
Dry skin forms when our skin doesn't retain moisture. Particularly in winter, there is a lower humidity level indoors and outdoors, and inconsistency in the temperature.
I created macabalm to alleviate skin concerns with an organic and unique solution, in harmony with mother nature and her people, and to remove toxins from our daily beauty/ skin routines. I follow a few different rituals in winter to protect my skin against the elements of the season, so grab a tube of macabalm and try these for yourself
1. Macabalm mask
Apply a thin layer of macabalm all over your face in the evening. Either leave for an hour or wash it off in the morning, to reveal that dewy, healthy glow.
2. Macabalm for the lips
We've all experienced dry lips, and some of us experience them more severely than others. We created macabalm with macadamia butter’s healing properties, paired with Kakadu Plum, which is incredibly hydrating for the lips. It gives you that soft, desirable pout in summer and protects you against dry, cracked lips in winter.
3. Invest in organic
Our goal was to bridge the gap between an easy, everyday skin saviour and quality, responsibly sourced ingredients in a category lacking certified organic products and practices. Now we have a product that uses ingredients our ancestors have harnessed for centuries; healing, replenishing, soothing and regenerating skin and the environment as nature intended - without toxins. Your skin is your biggest organ; choose what you put on it.
4. Use a humidifier in your home.
A humidifier will add moisture to the air, keeping your skin hydrated and maintaining that dewy feel we all desire through the four seasons of the year. Move the humidifier around the rooms you spend the most amount of time in, particularly the bedroom in which we all sleep for (ideally!) 8 hours a day.
5. Opt for warm water in the shower, not hot
As much as we all love those extra long, extra hot showers in the middle of winter, your skin will stay much happier through these colder months if you limit the amount of time you spend in the shower. Stick to a lukewarm temperature rather than scorching hot. What is too hot? If your skin turns red, that is usually a telltale that it is too hot.
6. Drink plenty of water
We often forget to drink water in winter because it is colder, so we don't feel as "dehydrated" in winter as we do in summer; however, that is not the case. An easy way to ensure you stay on track with your water consumption is to set a daily water goal to help you stay hydrated. . I carry my water bottle in my handbag, alongside my macabalm, as a little reminder to drink water throughout the day. If you don't want to drink cold water in winter, try warming it up.
7. Macabalm for the hands
Dry cuticles? Cracks around your fingers? Rough Elbows? I hear you. Macabalm gives you an instant surge of moisture without leaving your hands or fingertips greasy. Carry a medium tube in your handbag when those dry spots catch you off guard.
