Five Ways to Stay Glowy in the Winter

Feb 11, 2016

1. Indulge in a Hydrating Mask

We clearly love a good face mask, and there’s no better time than the winter season to amp up your skincare routine and treat yourself to a weekly at-home facial. Look for hyaluronic acid or or fruit extract-enriched formulas that will plump skin with a extra dose of soothing love.

2. Make Tea Time, All the Time…

Inner beauty = outer beauty. The body requires water to survive, and if you’re not drinking enough, you’re bound to see it in your skin. Make sure you get your daily eight glasses in, but also integrate tea drinking into your daily routine. Teas - especially green, red, and black - are rich in antioxidants and provide many more health benefits than coffee. For a caffeine-free alternative, opt for a delicious herbal tea or tisane.

3. Load Up On Essential Oils…

Why do we love our Essential Oil Trios? Let us count the ways: You can drop them into your bathwater to infuse a gorgeous aroma, or wear each one individually (or blended) as an all-natural perfume. Dab on skin to instantly de-stress or get a boost of energy.

4. Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize…

When in doubt, moisturize. Wind, snow, and cold weather can easily dry out your complexion, so make sure you’re not skimping on moisturizer - even if you have oily skin! (You can even use a face oil like Chantecaille’s Rose de Mai if you’re so inclined, paired bien sûr with our Rose of Damascus Hammam Soap!) Remember: protecting skin’s barrier is the key to a healthy appearance.

5. Treat Yourself to a Bath…

Have you ever noticed how skin looks its healthiest and most radiant immediately post-shower? All of the steam generating from hot water does wonders for opening pores and getting them super clean when you use your cleanser. All of our soaps are rich in shea butter and other hydrating ingredients and really make for the ultimate luxury bathing experience.
