As the cold weather rages on, it can be a struggle to keep skin smooth and moisturized. Luckily, we've discovered three key ingredients to save flaky and dry
It's time to celebrate a return to silky smooth skin! (But we recommend keeping your gloves on).
Ingredient 1: Oats
Oats are delicious, packed with nutrients, and can work miracles on your skin!
Oatmeal on it's own does not have any moisturizing benefits, but when combined with other key ingredients it can leave your skin dewy and glowing. Oatmeal is a humectant, which means it is incredible at retaining and preserving moisture. Therefore, when used in beauty recipes that contain things such as farm fresh goat milk, it assists the skin by making it easier to absorb and lock in moisture.
Our gently exfoliating Honey and Almond Goat Milk Soap Bar was made with the benefits of oatmeal in mind. This bar is most beneficial when followed up with a Body Butter, as the oats in the bar will help your body retain the moisture in the lotion.
Ingredient 2: Honey
Treat your skin to this sweet ingredient if you want clear pores and a dewy appearance
Honey infused beauty products are a must for winter weather! Raw honey is loaded with nutrients that will help your skin moisturize throughout the entire day. It is a naturally antibacterial ingredient, which means that it is wonderful at preventing and treating acne, blackheads, and clogged pores. It opens up your pores which makes them incredibly easy to unclog, and it leaves you with soft, luscious skin.
We recommend concluding your beauty routine with our Milk and Honey Body Butter, or our Apricot and Honey Body Butter if you prefer a slightly sweeter scent. Both pair incredibly well with our Honey and Almond Goat Milk Soap, and they will assist in repairing damaged and irritated skin.
Ingredient 3: Almonds
It is said that Cleopatra regularly incorporated almonds in her diet and beauty regimen, and there is science backing up this Queen's opinion!
Almonds are loaded with vitamin-E, which is known for it's ability to moisturize and soothe irritated skin. It is therefore beneficial in anti-aging beauty routines, and for healing skin in the harsh winter climate. It is also packed with fatty acids and plenty of vitamins which boost hair growth and eliminate dandruff.
Our products containing almond oil, such as our Natural Body Butter, are ideal for anyone who suffers from dry, flaky skin, or for anyone who wants fresh, glowing skin.
