Winter Skin Survival Guide

Posted on November 30, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized |

How’s your skin holding up under this cold weather?  Tis the season for dry and itchy skin, if you are not doing extra things to keep it protected.  That means more than spreading on the moisturizer.  Keep your sunscreen (and lip balm!) applied on those bright, sunny days while playing in the snow.  Read the links listed under Resources to get neat tips on the steps you can take to help protect your skin from those frosty winds.

Green Your Skin Care is all about making your own skin care products to make sure you are only applying the purest materials to your skin (and avoiding the waste that empty bottles create in landfills).  So, instead of going out and buying something in the store… be adventurous and make your own body butters and creams.  Here are some links to get you going.  They range from the very basic to the exotic:
