Protecting our skin (and hair) from winter's grasp

    Hair and skin loving ingredients:

    Hair Herbs: rosemary, nettle, chamomile, calendula, horsetail, geranium, carrot.

    Hair Oils: jojoba, wheat germ, evening primrose, almond, avocado, flaxseed.

    Now that winter is in full swing, it's time to evaluate your personal care regimen. Just as you change your wardrobe from season to season, so should you shift your approach to caring for your skin and hair. This must mean that you can forget about using the sunscreen you needed in July, right? Wrong.

    Although we do tend to spend more time indoors during the winter months, it doesn't mean we no longer need to protect our skin from the sun. For those who are challenged by winter sports, the need for protection is even greater. The exposure to ultraviolet light (UVA and UVB) may seem more subtle in winter than in summer, but, even on the most overcast winter day, the sun shines through and is reflected from surfaces, especially if the ground is covered with snow. Whether it be from a tinted foundation, or from a moisturizing lotion, a daily application of a sunscreen with an SPF (sun protection factor) between 15 to 30 is essential for everyone.
