Does Your Skin Need a Face Balm This Winter? – Our skin is an important indicator of our overall health and wellbeing.
Just as we adapt our clothing, exercise regimen and diet throughout the year, it’s time to also take a seasonal approach to our skincare too. During the winter months, cold temperatures, chilly winds, and central heating can be harsh on your skin, therefore we suggest a little TLC and following a winter skincare regime will give you a healthy glow all year around.
Switching to a heavier moisturiser is advisable and can really help to keep those important oils locked in your skin, as your skin tends to produce fewer oils in the winter months. If you notice any tightness, dryness or flaking it is certainly time to upgrade.
Women Talking looks at the Jane Scrivner Day and night face balms to add 24-hour protection to your skincare routine.
Face balms are solidified oils that melt into a liquid when they meet the warmth of your skin. Unlike moisturizers, balms are anhydrous, meaning that they contain no water. They provide a richer more robust and nourishing protective layer to your skin, while shielding it from external elements such as cold or dry air.
The Jane Scrivner’s morning and evening face balms are targeted nutritional skin recipes, packed with plant-derived butter and omega and phytosterol rich oils, to feed your skin when it needs a helping hand – deeply nourishing, replenishing the acid mantle, fortifying the skin’s barrier function, and adding that extra level of moisture, protection, and smoothness.
