3 natural winter skin hacks for a gorgeous glow

by Tania Griffin

Winter doesn’t have to be a time of skin woes and hiding behind layers of caked makeup. There is so much more to life in the winter months if your skin is healthy and problem-free. It makes you feel more confident, it makes you feel more attractive and it makes you feel ready to take on any challenge.

The first step toward a glowing complexion in winter is to hydrate from within. And what better way to do that than by sipping on some hearty warm herbal teas? Herbal teas like chamomile, green tea and peppermint are not only soothing but also packed with antioxidants that help combat inflammation and protect your skin from environmental stressors. So heartwarming for body, mind and skin. 

“Rather embrace the beauty of winter with a radiant complexion that will turn heads wherever you go. Grab your favourite moisturiser, prepare a wholesome meal, and let your skin shine bright like a winter wonderland. Because you deserve it,” says Nicole Sherwin, founder of Eco Diva Natural.

By following these three natural winter skin hacks, you can maintain a gorgeous glow all-season long. Hydrate, moisturise, exfoliate and nourish your skin from within.

1. Hydration Heroes: Drink up and moisturise – The key to combating winter skin is hydration. Start from within by drinking plenty of filtered or spring water throughout the day. Hydrated skin is happy skin! Additionally, invest in a rich, nourishing moisturiser that suits your skin type and balances your skin microbiome. Look for ingredients like superfoods, hyaluronic acid, shea butter, vitamin C and squalene to lock in moisture and protect your skin’s barrier. Apply the moisturiser twice daily, and don’t forget to pamper your body as well, as skin is one organ, so the whole organ needs your tender loving care. A luxurious body butter or vitamin-rich body oil/scrub will keep your skin supple and smooth from head to toe.

2. Exfoliation Elixir: Buff away dryness – Exfoliation is a game-changer when it comes to achieving a healthy winter glow. Gentle exfoliation removes dead skin cells, allowing your moisturisers and serums to penetrate more effectively. Opt for a mild exfoliating scrub that won’t irritate your skin. Go for natural and go for simple. Apply and exfoliate once or twice a week to avoid over-exfoliation, which can lead to irritation. Remember to be gentle and let the exfoliator do the work—no need for harsh scrubbing! Kindness is Queen, always. Your skin will thank you with a renewed radiance.

3. Winter Diet Delights: Nourish from within – What you eat has a direct impact on your skin’s health. During winter, load up on foods rich in antioxidants, vitamins and healthy fats. Include plenty of fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds in your diet to provide essential nutrients for your skin. Foods like avocados, walnuts, berries and spinach are particularly beneficial. Consider adding a daily supplement of omega-3 fatty acids, which can help combat dryness and inflammation. Also include superfoods like baobab, maca, hemp seeds and spirulina which also offer wonders in hydrating skin from the inside out. Remember, a nourished gut and body equals healthy, vibrant, glowing skin. Something we all need. 

Most of all, remember self-care equals self-love, and when you love yourself kindly, your skin glows. So get those happy hormones activated and leading the charge and make this the best winter your skin has ever had.
