Natural Ways to Combat Dry Winter Skin - Lily of the Desert

Natural Ways to Combat Dry Winter Skin

As winter temperatures begin to grip the country, caring for delicate skin becomes a priority for many of us. In addition to cold winds and icy conditions, other factors can cause our skin to become dry and irritated, including…

  • Wearing heavier (and sometimes itchier!) fabrics and multiple layers.
  • The sometimes drastic changes in air temperatures between vehicles, heated rooms, and outdoor spaces
  •  Lower humidity levels (reduced by indoor heat)
  • The natural inclination to drink less water during cold weather (hydration is a year-round proposition!)
  • Hot baths and showers (irritating to the skin and can lead to dryness)  

Fortunately, you can manage winter itch and skin inflammation successfully by giving it the comfort and moisture it craves. Aloe vera, revered for its deep moisturizing properties, is the perfect natural solution for hydration-deprived skin. Let’s look at a couple of ways to update your skincare regime to help you survive the harsh days of winter.    

Soothe Skin with 99% Aloe Vera Gelly

As you prepare for the day, ensure the first layer you put on is our 99% Aloe Vera Gelly. This soothing gel replenishes, moisturizes, and hydrates your skin quickly without leaving a sticky residue. A perfect facial treatment, our Gelly brightens and revitalizes, giving your complexion a warm winter glow. And you can maximize the moisture further by using it as an after-bath and scalp treatment.

Equally effective after cold weather exposure, it quickly soothes itchy skin and those occasional dry patches. Ideal for the entire family, this topical formula penetrates at least three epidermal layers to protect and comfort sensitive winter skin.

Cleanse & Nourish Your Hands Frequently

Just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean we get to take a break from our hectic schedules. Outdoor projects, household chores, sporting events, and lots of trips to the mall all create the need to practice frequent handwashing. Our hands can quickly be stripped of their moisture, creating dry, cracked knuckles and leaving skin feeling tight. 

Clean and nourish your hands with our soothing Liquid Hand Soap, formulated with aloe, shea butter, and chamomile. Your hands will feel soft and revitalized and ready to take on the next item on your to-do list!
