During the cold winter months our skin can get dry and crack. At Australian Gold HQ we have compiled a few tips to help keep your skin hydrated. Remember, Hydrated skin means glowing skin.
Tip 1 : DRINK MORE WATER.
It may sound like a no-brainier, but a lot of us tend to skip out on water intake during the winter. Instead we opt for warmer beverages like hot chocolate and coffee. Its important to consume a few glasses of water per day and if your having a warm beverage choose tea – This will contribute to your water consumption. If you’re dehydrated then so is your skin.
Tip 2: PROTECT YOUR SKIN
In Winter we tend to forget to apply sunscreen because we’re generally covered up and don’t spend that much time outside. Did you know harmful UV rays still penetrate unprotected skin during the winter months? Australian Gold SPF products offer broad spectrum protection against harmful UV rays. A combination of ingredients like Vitamin C and Cocoa Seed butter also help to nourish and moisturise the skin. Check out the range Here
Its most important to apply an SPF to your face and neck as these areas are nearly always exposed. Australian Gold offers great face protection in the form of a Botanical Tinted Moisturiser SPF 50. This luxurious product offers protection, moisture and a hint of colour – It really is the perfect winter must have. Apply in the morning and then you are ready for the day.
TIP 3: WASH IN LUKEWARM WATER.
We’re all guilty of wanting to stand in a scalding hot shower in the winter because it feels nice – but try to refrain. Hot water will remove moisture from your skin and hair, causing it to dry out. That will only lead to cracking and irritation. Instead, wash your body and face in lukewarm water. It may not be as instantly satisfying, but it will do wonders for your skin
TIP 4: APPLY MOISTURISER RIGHT AFTER WASHING.
Don’t wait to apply your moisturiser after you wash your face or shower. Try to apply within 5 minutes after washing your skin. This will instantly give your skin the moisture it requires and prevents skin drying out. Australian Gold has a large range of Moisturisers that will help lock in moisture and nourish the skin. The hemp nation range can be used as a daily body moisturiser, containing Pure Hemp seed oil which provides supreme hydration.
