Simple Tips to Get Your Skin Ready for a Winter Getaway - Dry Skin Treatment
Ready to make your escape!? If you are fortunate enough to be escaping the winter weather for warmer and sunnier days this spring, then you must read on for some dry skin treatment tips to keep you safe and gorgeous in the sun from head to toe.
Not only do you need to pack up all of your shorts and bathing suits for upcoming spring break sunny destination getaways you also need to get your face, body and hair (often overlooked!) all ready for every stage of sun exposure.
Here are some things you need to start doing right after you book that airplane ticket!
Start These Dry Skin Treatment Tricks 30 Days Before:
- Dry brush for 3-5 minutes before showering each day,
- Exfoliate with a body polish 2-3 times a week in the shower or bath,
- And top it off by moisturizing with an emolient body butter or body oil every day or twice a day if very dry skin.
- Increase your water and herbal tea intake to help hydrate your body and skin.
- Buy a good quality mineral based, natural SPF for face and body, a great big sexy hat with a wide brim, and a stainless steel water bottle.
Why should you do this?! Your winter skin is dry, flaky, itchy and crying out for you to give it some relief. It will take some self-care and effort to get it in good shape before you expose it to the sunshine.
While in the sun: Think Face, Ears, Lips, Hair & Body!
Ensure you’re using that clean & natural sun protection of 60 SPF applied 30 minutes before sun exposure to all of your skin that will be exposed (don't forget your ears, lips, eyelids too!). Check out Think Dirty and Leaping Bunny for some clean sunscreen suggestions.
Don't neglect your hair while swimming in the pool or lounging in the sun! I am definitely guilty of this one and my hairdresser reminds me often to take good care of my hair while on vacation. Watch this video of our Founder & CEO, Jodie, talking about how she has protected her hair from sun damage when on a sunny vacay.
For your lips, look for a lip balm with SPF and be sure to apply your face sunscreen to your lips, eyelids and ears too.
After You've Been in the Sunshine: Ensure you are using a gentle body wash or soap in the shower to get all the sunscreen off, and apply body butter at least twice a day to calm the body (Make That Kiss Last contains lavender and vanilla which is a great way to soothe sun kissed or irritated skin).
For your face, ensure you use something to calm your exposed skin with plant based ingredients. We suggest some soothing products such as our Rose Chamomile Face Tonic, followed by the Youthful Kisses Anti-Aging Serum and Anti-Aging Daytime Moisturizer (which contains a natural 30 SPF from ingredients such as Red Raspberry Seed Oil and other anti-aging ingredients) and at night use our Replenishing Avocado Night Cream.
Enjoy and stay safe while having fun in the sun! You deserve it, sunshine.

This is a common question that I get asked. With the uprise of facial oils in Western Society, it is a good one to ask for certain. Whether you have oily, acne prone skin or dry skin, you may also be wondering about the facial oil hype and whether or not it is the right skincare solution for you. The magical panacea you have been longing for perhaps. On the flip side, I've even had some people have a complete meltdown as an adult when oil touches their face because they still remember being covered in pimples as a teenager just for coming anywhere near oil on their sensitive, hormonal faces.
If you haven't yet introduced any facial oils into your skincare ritual, I highly recommend you overcome your fears and embrace the oil. In fact, in Eastern cultures women have been using plant based oils abundantly for thousands of years. And their gorgeous, youthful complexions certainly show it.
