Quench Your Skin: The Best Eminence Organic Skin Care Products for Dry Winter Skin on the Face
Is your skin feeling dull, dry and tight? Perhaps fine lines and wrinkles have suddenly become more obvious? Or maybe the dry air has caused your skin to be more sensitive. You are not alone. While most of us love to look at a beautiful snowy white blanket that envelopes landscape during the winter season, we wouldn’t miss the cold temperatures, blustery winds and the effect it has on our skin. The moisture-sucking action of wind and higher thermostat settings wreak havoc on the complexion, but there are a few things you can do to soothe, protect and get rid of dry skin, including several Eminence Organic Skin Care products that are best-suited to help you in your winter skin care routine.
- Use a Humidifier: The heating systems we use to keep us snug as a bug in the winter severely dry out the air, resulting in important oils being stripped away, leading to itchy skin. Add moisture to the air to help soothe and calm irrirated skin.
- Stop Taking Long Hot Showers and Baths: Hot temperatures wreak havoc on your skin's moisture barrier, preventing it from retaining the moisture it requires to stay soft and smooth. To keep skin protected, use warm water and once finished, moisturize from head to toe to keep skin hydrated.
- Moisturize: When looking for a moisturizer to care for your dry skin aim for a heavier one and look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid. It is the best ingredient to keep skin hydrated. Also look for products that contain shea butter and lactic acid, which provide added hydration and exfoliation.
- You Are What You Eat: The barrier properties of the skin’s outer layer, limits the penetration of creams and serums. Enhance the effects of skin care products by adding healthy fats to your diet such as Omega-3 and Omega-6. These natural oils support skin health, fight inflammation and enhance the skin’s moisture. You can add these fats to your diet by eating foods such as salmon, flaxseed and walnuts, or by taking high quality supplements.
- Avoid Harsh Products: To protect your skin, avoid products that include chemical ingredients like parabens, petrolatum, mineral oils, propylene glycol or sodium lauryl sulfate.

One of the best ways to tackle dry skin on your face is to consider adding a number of gentle products that replenish and repair, to your skin care routine. We recommend the following routine to heal and soothe dry skin.
Try adding an oil-based cleanser such as Eminence Organics Wildflower Cleansing Balm or Stone Crop Cleansing Oil to your winter skin care routine.
