Goodbye Winter, Hello Spring

Goodbye Winter, Hello Spring

With Winter almost at a close, our skin will be rejoicing when the Spring weather eventually kicks in.  But, the cold and dry weather really has affected our skin and a change in season doesn’t miraculously heal all wounds.  

At Bayeco, we care about your skin health and want to provide you with some Pharmacist recommendations on combating that dull, winter skin.  Not only is your skin care key to achieving that luminous healthy glow, there are other factors at play that help in achieving this goal.

Combat dull, winter skin with 6 easy steps:

1. Fish Oil Tablets
Fish oil can help heal and prevent niggling skin issues, and increase skin elasticity.  This miracle oil restores moisture to the skin and is great anti-inflammatory too.

2. Probiotics
Probiotics is a great all-round skin pleaser as it helps boost gut health, and helps build the immune system

3. Skin Care with Active Ingredients
Not only is what you consume key to achieving skin health, the skin care that you use is also critical.  Choose skin care with active ingredients that include:

Kakadu Plum - this small, but mighty plant found in Northern Australia is a superstar in ensuring your skin is glowy, soother and hydrated.  It is the world’s richest source of vitamin c, which helps with collagen production and brightening

Green Tea - not only is green tea a great winter drink, it is also extremely beneficial to skin health.  Green tea is rich in antioxidants, which protects the skin from free radical damage.  It is also great for anti-ageing because of it’s rich antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties 

The Bayeco range boasts ingredients rich in antioxidants and combine these with researched actives that result in beautiful, youthful looking skin.

The range excludes harmful chemicals, such as parabens, SLSs, phthalates, mineral oils and formaldehydes. 

4. Water Consumption
Winter skin is prone to dehydration due to exposure to cold dry air, and heater conditions, so water consumption is key to ensuring our skin remains hydrated.  It is recommended that we consume 2L of water a day, in winter this can be hard, so drink 1-2 glasses when you wake in the morning to kick start hydration levels

5. Foods
Eating foods rich in antioxidants, zinc and vitamins is a sure fire winner to aid your skin during these cooler months.  For example, avocados are loaded with antioxidants and good fats, pumpkin seeks are high in zinc which encourages collagen production and almost are rich in vitamin e, which is a great antioxidant and helps soften the skin.  

6. Hydrating Masks
Masks are key to help skin to restore and retain moisture.  We love the Karuna Hydrating Face Mask, which is enriched with Natto, which works to boost skin elasticity and exfoliate dead skin to help brighten the complexion; and Sodium Lactate to help skin retain moisture.
