Winter is coming, is your skin ready?

Winter's arrival is a well-known challenge for our skin, as the colder temperatures often trigger skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. This season calls for introspection and a heightened commitment to self-care, embracing ways to nourish not only ourselves but also our bodies and skin.

Here are four winter strategies to embrace self-care and grant your skin a rejuvenating boost during these chilly months:

Revitalise with Dry Brushing:


In winter, we metaphorically shed our old skin, preparing for renewal and growth in the coming year. Dry brushing is a potent method that invigorates circulation, encourages lymphatic movement, and rejuvenates cells by exfoliating dead skin cells, promoting the growth of new ones.

Stay Hydrated:


Water is a powerful energy holder, so ensure access to fresh, filtered water to eliminate chlorine, fluoride, and other chemicals often present in tap water. Drinking coconut water can provide numerous positive benefits as well, keeping you hydrated, replenishing electrolytes, and enjoying a natural source of vitamins and minerals.True skin hydration begins from within, so if your skin feels tight or your face appears drawn in the mornings, it's a signal to hydrate.

Nourish Your Skin with Healthy Fats:


Moisturising your skin is crucial. After all, why apply anything to your skin that you wouldn't eat? Your skin, being the body's largest organ, deserves utmost care. At Esca, we advocate for natural solutions, steering clear of chemicals and harsh ingredients. Our nourishing skin and lip balms are packed with essential vitamins like A, D, E, and K, effectively providing your skin with the nourishment it craves during the harsh winter months. Make a delightful ritual out of applying our organic Tallow and Manuka balm or our range of lip balms.

Indulge in Epsom Salt Baths:


Did you know that a 30-minute soak in a warm Epsom salt bath can supply your body with enough magnesium to improve sleep and aid in recovery? Magnesium, often underestimated, is a skin-friendly mineral that also softens hair and detoxifies your body. This winter, treat yourself to the luxury of a long, relaxing Epsom salt bath – your skin will express its gratitude.
