Head-to-Toe Winter Skincare Tips

Cold, dry weather can wreak havoc on skin, leaving it dull, dry, chapped and itchy (yikes). In fact, it's right about halfway through winter that your skin can reach its peak dryness. So now's the perfect time to rejuvenate your skin with a head-to-toe regimen that includes chemical-free, nourishing emollients and, of course, essential oils.

Here are our favorite head-to-toe skincare recipes:

Shampoo for Dry Scalp

Dry Scalp Shampoo

A dry scalp can be more than just unsightly. It can cause itching, dandruff and even some hair loss. A key ingredient in this nourishing homemade shampoo is superb skin-nourishing carrot seed oil, which helps balance and heal dry skin. We added lavender, rosemary, sandalwood and palmarosa essential oil for a calming, yet stimulating, fresh scent. Be sure to make this with your favorite unscented natural shampoo!

Dry Skin Cleansing & Nourishing Oil

Cleansing Oil

This skin-nourishing and cleansing oil starts with jojoba — a carrier oil that's known for its skin balancing and fortifying benefits. We then added macadamia oil, which is a wonderful oil for creating a long-lasting sheen of superior skin-protective emolliance. Macadamia is also a go-to oil for protecting skin during dry winter months, or anytime skin is exposed to the weathering effects of outdoor activities. Carrot seed essential oil and Rose Absolute add further skin nourishment and a fresh, floral scent.

Winter Skincare Tips

  1. Long, hot showers and strong cleansers dry the skin. Take shorter, more tepid showers during the winter months and switch to a cleanser formulated with a moisturizer. Sprinkle 12 drops of essential oil on the shower floor for a pleasant aroma while showering.
  2. Dry air = dry skin. Invest in a humidifier. Or simmer a pot of water on the stove. Or simply fill a spray bottle with pure water and mist the air. Add 6 drops of essential oil per oz. of water to create a pleasing scent while you humidify.
  3. Retain skin moisture by applying a light skincare oil such as grapeseed, sesame or jojoba to wet skin after cleansing and patting dry. Add 6 drops gentle lavender, chamomile or geranium to each ounce of skincare oil.
  4. Consider a soap-free cleansing method. Choose from a sugar and oil scrub, sugar scrub bar or an oil cleansing method.
  5. Wrap up! Protect exposed skin with gloves, scarf, leggings and a hat whenever venturing outdoors. Keep gloves fresh by tucking a handkerchief sprinkled with 6 drops of your favorite essential oil into each glove.
