Protect your skin from cold harsh winter air!


All across the country we have been blessed with lots more snow and freezing cold temperatures.
We really need to be aware of the damage our central heating & the environment does during the winter months.

Throughout the winter as we go about our daily life our skin is going from cosy warmth into the freezing cold, sometimes windy, outdoors. Our skin really does take a bashing. Warm air holds more moisture than cold air, so if you heat up air, which is exactly what we are doing when we have our central heating on, without adding moisture to compensate it sucks the moisture from our skin, hair and lips. Although some recommend that we turn the heating down & wear more clothes, this is not very practical when we are having such low temperatures like recently. Cold air destroys the layer of the skin that protects it against drying out, when you go outside into the harsh cold air the moisture is being beaten out of our skin.
It's vital that we give our skin, lips & hair back the natural nutrients lost over these coming months....don't wait until your skin and lips feel chapped and sore or your hair is too dried out to do anything with.

The best and quickest way to prepare our face for the harsh months ahead is to use much more intensive day & night creams to hydrate, nourish and protect our delicate skin such as Lavera Wild Rose Organic Liposome Intensive Cream. The most important ingredients in this cream are Organic Wild Rose which is used mostly for skin cell renewal& helps mend broken thread veins, Organic Blackcurrant Seed Oil helps to prevent water loss through the skin therefore preventing dryness, Organic Shea Butter for Vitamins A & E that leave the skin feeling soft and smooth and extracts taken from the leaf of an Asian tree named Ginko for cell regeneration and stimulation of blood circulation.

Primavera Organic Moisturising Protection Lotion is also fantastic for winter weather and dryer skin. A light weight lotion also containing Organic Blackcurrant Seed Oil, Organic Neroli (also known as Orange Blossom) which is particularly beneficial for dry & flaky skin, Organic Jojoba Oil that strengthens skin's natural moisture barrier to protect against dehydration and also has a natural sunscreen, Organic Fig extract because it is deeply moisturising so helps to maintain smooth hydrated skin.

New in the Madara range is Deep Replenishing Organic Day Cream for all skin types but is perfect for use during the winter for dehydrated skin. Deep Replenishing Organic Day Cream is combination of essential hydrating, nourishing & moisturising ingredients taken from natural hedgerows and meadows in Latvia, which include Organic Jojoba Oil, Organic Linseed Extract, Organic Rowan Extract, Organic Nettle Extract, Organic Sea Buckthorn Berry Extract and Organic Calendula Extract.
