Posted on April 27 2024

As winter wraps its icy fingers around us, it brings with it a host of challenges, not the least of which is the toll it takes on our skin and body. The plummeting temperatures, harsh winds, and low humidity levels can leave us feeling not only chilly but also wreak havoc on our skin and overall well-being. In this blog, we'll delve into the negative effects of winter on our skin and body, and why it's crucial to step up our beauty routine and self-care during these chilly months

  • Dry, Flaky Skin: One of the most common complaints during winter is dry, flaky skin. The cold air outside combined with indoor heating systems strips moisture from the skin, leaving it parched and dehydrated. Without an adequate moisture barrier, our skin becomes susceptible to irritation, redness, and even cracking. To combat this, it's essential to invest in hydrating skincare products that replenish lost moisture and protect the skin's natural barrier. To help you prevent your skin from becoming dry and flaky we recommend our Just Pure Body Balm, Bath and Body Oils (a luxurious indulgence), Body Butter and our Hand & Foot Balm.


  • Chapped Lips: Who hasn't experienced the discomfort of chapped lips during winter? The delicate skin on our lips lacks oil glands, making it particularly prone to dryness and cracking in cold weather and it is for this reason that we offer the Just Pure Lip Balm or a Tinted Lip Balm. Constant exposure to the elements can leave our lips feeling sore, rough, and unpleasant. Regular application of a nourishing lip balm with ingredients like shea butter or coconut oil can help soothe and hydrate dry lips, keeping them soft and supple all season long.
  • Dull Complexion: Winter's chill can also dull our complexion, robbing it of its natural radiance and glow. Reduced exposure to sunlight, coupled with dry indoor air, can leave our skin looking lack-lustre and tired. To counteract this, incorporate hydrating skincare products containing ingredients like shea butter and plant oils which are easily absorbed and help to seal the moisture in the skin, like the Just Pure Rejuventing Balm, our magical Purifying Balm or our Balancing Balm. Additionally, don't skimp on your natural sunscreen, even on cloudy days, to protect your skin from harmful UV rays.
  • Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD): Lastly, the winter blues can cast a shadow over our mental health, contributing to feelings of sadness, lethargy, and even depression. Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) affects many people during the colder months, as reduced sunlight can disrupt our body's internal clock and serotonin levels. Combatting SAD may require a multifaceted approach, including light therapy, regular exercise, and seeking support from loved ones or mental health professionals.
As we bundle up against the winter chill, it's important to remember that our skin and body require extra care and attention during these colder months. From dry, flaky skin to joint pain and seasonal affective disorder, the negative effects of winter can manifest in various ways. By adopting a proactive approach to skincare, staying physically active and prioritizing our mental well-being, we can weather the winter season with grace and emerge with our skin and body intact. So, don't let the frosty weather freeze your beauty routine—step up your self-care game and embrace the season with confidence and vitality.
