The weather has been pretty confusing lately. Some days we wake up to frigid temperatures and piles of shovelling to do, on other days we wake up to a sunny days in the positives, and we are in January! Hey, we aren’t going to complain, but don’t be fooled - from the sounds of it, winter is going to stick around for a while!  

While winter contains its share of lovely things, like endless cups of cocoa and building snowmen with the kiddos, it is also, unfortunately, the time of year where your skin just seems to dry out completely. This leaves you feeling itchy and leaves your skin vulnerable to the signs of aging.

Don’t despair! These 3 simple skin care tips will have you feeling like yourself in no time, so that you can enjoy all the great things winter brings!


Smooth Your Skin With Exfoliation

Exfoliation is key to instantly relieving itchy, dry skin by sloughing off dead skin cells, revealing silky soft and radiant skin that will itch no more!

Our body’s are constantly producing new skin cells, most of which the body naturally sheds, however, when cell turnover happens faster than the body can shed the old cells, it causes a buildup which can clog pores, leaving skin looking dull and flaky, and feeling dry and uncomfortable.

By exfoliating at least once a week, you will ensure that your skin stays radiant and beautifully soft. We love this Sugar Scrub to slough off dead skin. 


Amp Up The Moisture

This is the season to switch out your lightweight moisturizer for more intense hydration. A richer moisturizer will not only help your skin to feel and look better, it will also help to protect against the elements, like that dry, bitter wind. Check out Cocoon's Apothecary's Kahuna Body Lotion!


Add In A Serum For Serious Hydration

If you have never tried a serum before then now is your perfect chance. Serums contain 10 times the active ingredients of a moisturizer, and because their molecules are smaller, they are able to penetrate deeper into the pores.

This, however, does not mean you should ditch your moisturizer! In fact, serums and moisturizers work really well together to provide your skin with the utmost nourishment and hydration. Serums are usually followed by your moisturizer to help lock in the active ingredient. Check out these facial serums to add in some hydration. 


There you have it. These 3 simple changes in your routine will make all the difference. Give it a go and breeze through winter!
