It’s that time of the year to start wearing layers to protect your body from the elements of the winter weather; have you done the same with your skincare?
The skin is the body’s largest organ and it’s nutritional needs change with the seasons.
In the winter it is important to increase the supply of essential fatty acids and water content within the skin. You can do this by eating foods that are rich in omega oils and healthy fats, like avocados, nuts, olive oil chia seeds, flax and more.
And don’t forget to drink your water!
Even with a diet full of omega oils and fats, topical application of nutrients is imperative to prevent dry skin and repair it. A targeted skin care regime during the fall and winter seasons will help prevent dry, taut and flaky skin. When our skin is dry we experience sensitivity and our skin tends to look aged and boasts fine lines. This is due to a lack of essential fatty acids.
