It’s a battle every year: the cold weather sweeps in and we’re forced to deal with dry, flaky skin. It’s itchy, uncomfortable, and it looks even worse than it feels. While dry skin can start as a small annoyance, if left untreated it can sometimes lead to dermatitis, a more severe condition characterized by red, bumpy skin inflammation.

Fortunately, most dry skin arises from external causes – like cold weather – and can be nicked with topical care. Here are a few guidelines for ensuring your skin is well taken care of.

  1. Shower sensibly. Long showers can be lovely, but if you stand in the stream for too long while the water is hot, your morning ritual could be working against you. Hot water will wash away the oils your skin already produces. Also, don’t overuse soap when you bathe – it will rob you of soft skin even faster.
  2. Not too wet, not too dry. When you rub on lotion, be sure that your skin is damp before application to work along with the product. As soon as you hop out of the shower is best – your pours will be open and you’ll be wet all over. Just pat down the dry areas of skin before you slather on anything. You’ll trap the moisture better that way.
  3. Use natural products. It’s important to use lotions that are based on natural ingredients. Oils with natural origins are best to gently saturate your skin. Sabon’s body butter is a good choice for especially thirsty skin. It uses a natural triumvirate: shea butter, cocoa butter, and bees’ wax.
  4. Don’t scratch. Even when it seems impossible, you can’t claw at your skin during dry air (and dry skin) season. Itching will only further irritate your skin. Don’t prolong the problem; treat it.
  5. Exfoliate! Especially in the winter, exfoliating is very important. Dry winter skin is the result of dry skin cell build up. As we tend to releive this with only applying heavy creams, many of us forget that the most important ritual to healthy skin is to first exfoliate the dry skin away! Increase your exfoliation routine this season to remove the dead skin cells, and then moisturize the new cells, resulting in healthier, moister skin! Try our Body Scrubs, which we reccommend using 2-3 times per week. This will enhance the skins glow with immediate results!

 

Your skin is your biggest, most vulnerable organ. As cold weather creeps closer and closer, take good care of your skin so you can look and feel better!

If you feel your skin has been looking not quite its best, the Mud Mask is here to take away the worry. Whisk away dead skin cells and improve your skins radiant appearance with this once a week regimen.

Our Mud Mask is a thick, rich, creamy mask full of minerals from the Dead Sea. The cooling effect will immediately wake up your skin, and since you leave the mask on for 10 minutes, you know by the time you’ve finished you will feel amazing. Diminish the appearance of large pores and give your skin the therapeutic detoxification it deserves.

First, make sure your skin is clean by washing your face. Dry gently, and leave your skin a little damp. Next, apply a thin layer all over, but avoid your eye and mouth areas. 10 minutes is the minimum to provide results, but feel free to let the mask sit for up to a full 20. Relax while you’re skin takes in everything the Dead Sea has to offer. You’ll start to look forward to this calming weekly ritual. After 10-20 minutes have passed, be sure to rinse the mask from your face thoroughly.

Your skin will be left feeling rejuvenated, and the minimizing of redness and sunspots will have you feeling confident again. The Mud Mask compliments greatly with the Seaweed Moisturizing Lotion for a flight and refreshing feeling.
