The Ultimate Winter Body Care Guide

By Temple Spa 23 days ago 145 Views

Welcome to autumn and winter! Two seasons which bring us crisp golden leaves, darker cosier evenings and a chilly drop in temperature, signalling it’s time for warm wooly jumpers, boots, gloves, hats and everything else. But what body care routine can we do in the winter months?

Our protective skin barrier is exposed to new elements, like the cold air, low humidity which steals any moisture in the air and indoor dry heat keeping our homes warm from the outside weather. It’s no surprise that our skin can often be dry, flaky and generally irritated. Introducing your new winter body care guide – and everything you need to know for keeping your skin in tip top condition!

Cleansing

Having daily showers or baths might seem like an clear place to start with your body care, but in the winter we’d recommend turning down the heat and avoiding long baths and showers that can strip your body of its natural oils. These oils are keeping your skin protected and healthy all day so let’s give them a helping hand.

Mornings are great when started with Aromatic Bath & Shower Gel. The cool blue gel lightly foams to cleanse the skin, leaving it so soft and soothed. Just breathe in the aromatic Mediterranean scent to transport you to the spa or somewhere sunnier!

Exfoliating

We shed many dead skin cells every day and keeping on top of this with body exfoliators can help improve skin texture, tone and appearance throughout the year. We’re sharing a few of the best body exfoliators you’ll find at TEMPLESPA and where to add one in your body care routine!

If you have a spare five minutes in the shower or bath a few times a week, you’re going to love this body exfoliator. SUGAR BUFF Smoothing Body Scrub is the best body exfoliator you’ll find, creating soft skin and a radiant glow. It’s a sugar scrub with Mediterranean notes of olive oil, fig and pomegranate to rejuvenate dull skin fast. Take a generous amount to damp skin, then gently rub in circular motion to exfoliate the skin.

Moisturizer

Like we mentioned at the beginning the cooler weather can strip our skin of its natural oils causing extra dryness. We replenish hydration with a nourishing moisturizer, plus aiding in a smoother and softer appearance. So where can you find the best body moisturizers? It’s all in this blog post.

Our ‘hug for the body and soul’ is the cult-favourite DUVET Comforting Body Cream, bringing you deeper skin nourishment fast. The luxuriously creamy texture has a special ingredient called Aquaxyl™️ that’s an anti-dehydration saviour to keep skin firm, deeply moisturized and radiant. Envelop your skin in this moisturizing goodness!

For a touch of glamour (think of all those exciting Thanksgiving and Christmas parties and gatherings!) you’ll need BODYTRUFFLE Rejuvenating Body Radiance Crème. All of the hydrating goodness you’ll find in a body moisturizer, but added rose quartz brings light reflecting properties to boost radiance. This is one product you won’t want to be without this party festive season.

Top up your body care routine with an oil, incorporate a gorgeous massaging technique and you’ve ticked that self-care box too! Our oils are made with the finest ingredients, lightweight to leave skin smooth and soft, not greasy and brilliant essential oil blends to choose depending on your mood or activity. For calming, try DRIFT AWAY Relaxing Bathing & Massage Oil, or if you love to exercise regularly, our WORK IT OUT Muscle-Tox Bathing & Massage Oil will help eliminate toxins and ease muscle tension while hydrating.
