Winter Skin Relief

This is a reminder from your June skin to your January skin: “It seems impossible now, but in a few months’ time you’ll be wearing shorts.”

For those of us who live in cold climates, glowing, supple skin isn’t at the top of our list of priorities currently. Much of the time, we’re trapped under several layers of clothing and our bodies haven’t seen daylight for months. Moisturizing after a shower only happens if the bathroom is warm enough to be unclothed for the amount of time it takes to apply it.

Your January skin has needs. We know it, and your June skin knows it too.

Trust us, taking care of your skin now will make breaking out your Summer wardrobe much friendlier. Coconut and Olive oil are your best allies for this, as they are particularly adept at softening and conditioning. Start simple and be consistent. Washing with our Castile Body Wash is a great way to help keep your winter skin supple and hydrated, and it’s super easy too.

Coconut Oil for Skin
The Coconut oil we use in our Castile Body Wash (and in all our products containing Coconut oil, such as our Lip Balm) is plant-based. It’s rich in Vitamin E and comprised of medium-chain fatty acids. When applied to skin, it forms a protective barrier that helps shield skin from environmental toxins. Coconut oil has anti-aging properties and helps skin remain youthful and soft. It wonderful for hydrating and soothing dry, irritated skin without clogging pores. Coconut oil is thought to help mitigate conditions such as dryness, redness, wrinkles, and fine lines.

Olive Oil for Skin
Like our Coconut oil, the Olive oil we use is plant-based. It’s packed with skin-plumping Squalene and revitalizing antioxidants, such as Vitamins A, E, D, & K, which help slow the appearance of aging. Rich in essential fatty acids, Olive oil helps keep skin glowing and toned. It helps fight free-radicals is thought to help mitigate conditions such as dryness, and dull, devitalized skin.

Taking care of your skin in winter doesn’t have to be a big deal. Using a great soap and remembering to moisturize once in awhile will pay dividends this Spring!
