Maintaining healthy skin can be very difficult, especially during the cold winter season. Switching from the dry weather outside to using heaters indoors can strip the moisture away from your skin. This is why it is crucial that you have a reliable skincare routine that reduces irritation and promotes hydration. Additional moisture will keep your skin vibrant, smooth, and  glowing naturally.

Follow these 6 ways to keep your skin hydrated during the winter:

1. WASH/SHOWER WITH LUKEWARM WATER: AVOID hot showers. We tend to shower in warmer or hot water in the cold weather, but this drains natural oils from the skin.

3. USE A DAILY CLEANSER: Change your daily cleanser to a more gentle that won’t strip skin of its natural oil. Avoid using cleansers with high concentrations of soap solvents or harsh chemicals. Our Canus Goat’s Milk Collection is made with real goat’s milk for soothing dry and damaged skin. Full of essential nutrients and vitamins A, B2, B3, B6, B12, and E, that feed the skin and are absorbed into the body. Proteins are easily absorbed by the skin, contributing to a deep and extended hydration. Canus Goat’s Milk Bar Soap can be used to cleanse the skin without stripping natural oils as well! The 27 oz Foaming Milk Bath is tested under dermatological control, to respect skin’s natural pH, are not irritant and hypo-allergenic. Check out all of our Canus products including Original and Lavender Scented. 

3. USE A DAILY MOISTURIZER: It is important to use a daily moisturizer after washing your face every morning and night. Even if you have naturally oily skin, you should still apply moisturizer daily. During the winter months your skin will naturally try to produce extra oils. If you don’t moisturize, your skin will end up being twice as oily. If you have dry/combination skin, try changing to a rich cream moisturizer that will protect and restore the barrier of your skin. Use our Hempvana Rich Herbal Extract Moisturizer Lotion to nourish skin with nature’s best moisturizers: Vitamin E, aloe vera, and Hemp seed extract in the form of oil. Two additional ingredients include Vitamin E, an essential antioxidant proven to nourish skin and help sun damage, and aloe vera, a natural skin healer and moisturizer. The silky, non-greasy formula has a light, citrusy scent and is light enough to deeply penetrate and hydrate skin without clogging pores. The result? Deliciously hydrated skin and luxurious sensory experience.

4. KEEP LIPS HYDRATED: Don’t forget about your lips! Avoid having chapped or cracked lips that take forever to heal. Choose lip products that contains super hydrating ingredients with a long-lasting formula. Use our Daily Lip Nourisher with Mango & Shea Butter , formulated with a combination of mango seed butter, shea butter, jojoba oil, rice bran oil and vitamins A, C, and E which keep the lips smooth and soft throughout the day. 

5. UTILIZE A FACE MASK: Face masks should play a key part in your skincare routine treatment to help you target specific needs. They’re an excellent way to maintain and help keep skin looking youthful. For Oily skin try using the Blue Lotus Seed Mud Mask + Exfoliant This facial treatment is good for detoxifying and purifying your pores during any season. It improves the skin surface leaving it with a sleek feel. If you have dry or combination skin, use  Coconut + Rice Sheet Masks to lock in moisture while brightening the skin.

6. STAY HYDRATED: Drink lots of water and avoid eating greasy, fried food that makes you breakout.
