With the change of seasons also comes the need to change our skincare routines. Our skin needs to be protected from the harsh cold air outside and the heated dry air inside. As busy moms and household managers, we often put our winter skincare needs last and focus more on switching out the kids’ snow gear or flipping our wardrobe closet to cardigans. The best part about moisturizing your skin for the winter months it that it doesn’t have to be expensive or include specialty products. Effective winter skin care can be achieved as simply as adding natural essential oils to your favorite all-around lotion or moisturizer. Here are some doTERRA Essential Oils that will work wonders for your skin this winter (and a free sample offer to below!):
Essential Oils for Winter Skincare
Lavender to Soothe Skin
Most people turn to Lavender for it’s calming and soothing properties. It’s definitely one of our favorites for supporting healthy sleep and relieving anxiety. However, Lavender is a great choice to turn to for soothing and supporting skin. Use a drop or two together with your favorite carrier oil or facial moisturizer to help rejuvenate your skin and keep it smooth in winter months. This is a great, cost-effective way to keep your skin hydrated!
Cedarwood as an Astringent
One of Cedarwood’s top properties is an Astringent. Combined with Lavender, Cedarwood is an excellent oil to use for supporting dry patches of skin and reducing blemishes. For added benefit, Cedarwood can be used to help overcome wintery coughs and colds.
Helichrysum to Rejuvenate Dry Skin
Known as the quintessential healing oil, Helichrysum is a total skin regenerating oil. For anything skin related, Helichrysum is a go-to favorite! Adding one or two drops to your favorite facial moisturizer or lotion will help support skin renewal and will rejuvenate dry skin.
New! Neroli to Rejuvenate Dry or Damaged Skin
We can’ be more excited about introducing Neroli into our skin support regime. Much like Helichrysum, this beautiful oil helps to rejuvenate dry or damaged skin. The Anti-Inflammatory and Regenerative properties make it a perfect oil to use daily to support skin, especially in the winter months. To make it even more convenient, this beauty already comes from doTERRA in a pre-diluted roller bottle called Neroli Touch!
As you can see, adding essential oils to your winter skincare routine is as easy as layering clothes for the winter! Your skin will be rejuvenated, refreshed, and protected so that you can fully enjoy outside winter activities without dry, itchy skin or chapped lips. Best of all, having glowing, radiant skin in the winter makes for an even better spring!
