Dry skin, chapped lips, rough knuckles, eczema, and psoriasis – say hello to Winter skin!
Winter can wreak havoc on your skin — making it dry, itchy, and irritated. Cold conditions outside can leave your skin feeling raw, while indoor heat zaps moisture from the air and from your skin.
The skin health products you use over winter can play a pivotal role in combating sluggish skin and combined with a few small lifestyle changes you can keep your skin hydrated and glowing all winter long. See our favourite tips and remedies below.
Winter can often cause eczema and psoriasis flare-ups. To keep the itchy dry skin at bay we recommend moisturising twice a day. The Rohr Remedy vitamin and mineral-rich daily Desert Lime Body Moisturiser is based on an old family anti-eczema apothecary formula. It combines the potent bioactivity of native Desert Lime with detoxifying Kelp to help skin retain moisture and softness. Use daily and all over for smooth, hydrated skin.
CHANGE UP YOUR DIET
Recent studies are showing a greater link between your gut and skin health. Increasing your daily intake of fats can really help with dry skin. Eating a diet rich in Omega 3 fatty acids is necessary to help keep skin thick, supple, and moisturised. Try incorporating foods such as almonds, avocados, and salmon to your diet.
DRY BODY BRUSHING
Believe it or not, body brushing has huge benefits for the skin especially for those with sensitive skin who may react to scrubs. Just a couple of minutes a day will target your lymphatic system and release toxins, discouraging fluid retention and cellulite, and remove dry skin. After a good dry body brushing session, we recommend applying the Rohr Remedy Boab & Rosehip Oil which is the multivitamin of oils. By massaging this into your skin, you will not only improve circulation but also lock in hydration, leaving you glowing from head to toe.
ENRICH YOUR NIGHTTIME ROUTINE
Over winter it is important to include an antioxidant-rich serum in your nightly beauty routine. After cleansing and moisturising add a generous layer of the Rohr Remedy Kakadu Plum & Vitamin C Serum to your face. This serum packs a punch and is a collagen-boosting virtuoso that will say goodbye to fine lines and wrinkles and keep skin hydrated, luminous all winter long.
Cold, dry air makes lips prone to dryness, cracking, flaking, and peeling. It is important to invest in a good lip balm with minimal ingredients that will not make lips dry out even more. Enter the Rohr Remedy Gumbi Gumbi Lip Balm, formulated using the Rohr family’s traditional apothecary methods. We wild harvest Gumbi Gumbi for its antioxidant, antiviral and antifungal properties and make it the hero ingredient. We then enrich it with Lanolin, Castor Oil and Vitamin E to soothe, nourish and repair even the driest and cracked lips.
