Say goodbye to your dry winter skin with these tips

Your skin has a hard time during the winter months. We make sure to brave the outdoors in thick coats, woolly hats and warm scarves, but our face does not escape the inclement weather. That's why it's important to take care of your skin during the winter months and prevent dry, gray, red and flaky skin. We will give you some tips in advance!

Tip 1: Vitamin C

Skin care and vitamin C go hand in hand. It is one of the most well-known ingredients in the cosmetics world precisely because it helps protect the skin from the outdoors and all that it brings. In fact, a lack of vitamin C can result in lower immunity and an increase in fatigue.

Vitamin C is additionally known for its equalizing effect, giving your face a healthy glow. By producing collagen and elastin (proteins), your skin will also maintain its firmness and youthfulness. At Marion Maakt , we developed an updated and more stable vitamin C serum that you make in just 10 minutes!

Tip 2: Moisturize

You already know it by now: in winter, skin is drier. But why really? It's because there is less moisture in the air during the winter months. And since water molecules tend to migrate to places where it's less humid, the water in your skin looks for a way out. So that's how your skin gets dehydrated.

To prevent dry skin, it is advisable to moisturize extra during this period. By applying a cream or serum yourself, you provide an extra hydration boost. Our hydrating serum is the perfect choice and also helps soothe your skin.

Tip 3: Recover and boost

If you notice that your skin feels drier and grayer during the winter, it is important to restore it in time. By going to work with a serum, you will rebalance your skin barrier and restore your skin's natural glow .

For this, we recommend our age with grace elixir. This serum not only strengthens, but is also packed with antioxidants and actives that help reduce fine lines (wrinkles). Repairing and anti-aging!

Tip 4: Boost Immunity

Supporting your resistance can also help in the winter. This is where essential oils can help!

Ravintsara essential oil is essential in winter. It is a powerful stimulant for the immune system and one of the most powerful antiviral essential oils. This oil is recommended in case of blocked airways, stuffy nose, sinusitis, cold sores, sore throat,...

To conclude, we will give you some additional tips that will come in handy when you have sinus problems. Ravintsara oil can work wonders!

  1. Put some drops of essential oil Ravintsara on a handkerchief and smell this occasionally.
  2. Do you still (occasionally) wear a mouth mask? Put 2 drops in your mouth mask.
  3. Put a few drops on the top of your pillow before bed.
  4. Vaporize: put 2 drops of Ravintsara, 2 drops of Scots pine and 1 drop of peppermint in hot water. Hang above it with your nose (do this quickly, because the effect dissipates through the hot water) and trap the vapor using a towel. Be careful: this may feel heavy. 
  5. Spray the same mixture (5-10 drops) of #4 with an aroma atomizer.
