Icy temperature, cold windy weather, and the cozy dry heat inside – the Vata or Winter season creates great stress on our skin. Stretched skin and intensified dryness become common, especially for those who genetically have dry and sensitive skin.
Taking care of the skin with the right set of moisturizing and nourishing ingredients keeps it looking flawless and dewy through the season and beyond. Here are the most effective and natural skin care actives you need in the winter:
1. Hyaluronic Acid
With the power of absorbing moisture a thousand times its own molecular weight, Hyaluronic Acid is an anti-aging and intense hydrating ingredient. Our BioScience Peptide Complex, with Hyaluronic Acid as a crucial active, supports the skin’s ‘collagen-elastin-hyaluronic acid matrix’. Regular application helps in reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic Acid also improves the skin’s elasticity and is effective against treating rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, and other dry/sensitive skin issues.
2. Shea Butter
When applied topically, Shea Butter deeply quenches, revitalizes, repairs, and calms dry skin. Our Vanilla Silk Body Butter is crafted with high-quality, unrefined Shea Butter and natural oils that provide 24h+ long-lasting moisture and leaves our body skin feeling renewed and refreshed.
3. Sweet Almond Oil
With high Vitamin A, E, Omega fatty acids, and Zinc, Sweet Almond Oil is an incredible moisturizer for dry winter skin. The anti-inflammatory actives also helps in reducing puffiness, under-eye dark circles, and acne. Due to its enriching emollient properties, Sweet Almond Oil improves complexion and tone and brings about skin clarity and brightness.
4. Hemp seed Oil
Hemp Oil is produced by cold-pressing hemp seeds and is different from cannabidiol (CBD). Apart from moisturizing and soothing dry skin without clogging pores, Hemp seed oil balances oil production and reduces the chances of acne or rosacea outbreaks. With high gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), Hemp oil encourages cellular regeneration that prevents developing different signs of aging.
5. Borage Oil
With the onset of the winter season, you may experience frequent episodes of skin redness, irritation, atopic dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, and eczema. If your skin is feeling dry and irritated, you will love the calming and soothing effect of Borage Oil. It is a lightweight oil so your skin does not feel greasy. With 17-20% GLA, Borage oil repairs the skin’s barrier leaving it smoother, supple, plumper, and radiant.
6. Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is a strong natural emollient. It contains a high amount of linoleic acid and unsaturated fatty acid, which deep conditions the skin. The oil exfoliates dead skin cells and eases inflammation. Fatty acids in Coconut Oil retain the moisture content by lowering trans-epidermal water loss, which keeps skin smooth and silky even in the driest season. Coconut oil in our Sun Protect SPF 30+ also protects against the damaging effect of the sun’s UV rays.
7. Jojoba Oil
The composition of Jojoba oil is similar to the natural restorative esters produced by the sebaceous glands of the skin. It is rich in antioxidants, Vitamin E, and powerful humectants that retain moisture by sealing the top layer of the skin with a protective barrier. The deep conditioning power of Jojoba oil naturally rejuvenates the skin and minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
