I’m always looking for new must-have products for my beauty cupboard, and with the cold winter weather upon us, my skin is in need of some extra TLC!
Here are my must-have (NATURAL) winter body care treats available from Wellness Warehouse …
By now you probably know about the numerous health benefits of coconut oil, but did you know that it boasts a myriad beauty benefits too? It’s naturally antibacterial and antifungal, and is a great deep moisturiser. Enter the Nature’s Gate Coconut range! Let’s start with the Coconut Body Wash. Made with coconut water, fig and litchi, this body wash not only smells amazing, but it really lathers the skin well, leaving it feeling clean and hydrated. As it lathers so well, only a small amount is needed and the bottle lasts a long time.
In the cold and dry winter months, humidity levels drop and the decreased moisture in the air leads to cracked hands and dry and flaky skin all over. Of course, staying on top of your moisture game during this time is crucial, but it’s also essential to make exfoliation part of your body care routine. One of my favourite scrubs to date is the Nature’s Gate Coconut Coffee Scented Body Scrub. As you can imagine, it smells good enough to eat! It’s formulated with coffee powder to gently exfoliate while also cleansing, softening and smoothing the skin.
As I’ve mentioned, moisturising plays a crucial role in winter body care. My current favourite body moisturisers are the Nature’s Gate Body Butter with Coconut, and Oh-Lief’s Natural Roman Chamomile Body Lotion and Green Rooibos Natural Body Oil.
The Coconut Body Butter is a rich butter made from coconut oil, cocoa butter, shea butter and palm butter. Great for nourishing, hydrating and restoring skin moisture, it’s the perfect everyday skin treat!
Oh-Lief’s Natural Roman Chamomile Body Lotion is a rich, creamy blend of organic oils and natural clay that softens and nourishes the skin. It contains 100% natural and certified organic ingredients that work together to leave your skin beautifully soft, with a lingering floral scent. This is my ultimate before-bed skin treat.
The Body Oil from the same range is a great product to use regularly during winter. The beauty of body oil is that it moisturises the skin intensely, helping to maintain healthy, deeply hydrated and radiant skin. What I love about this product is that it doesn’t run when you spray it on. It’s easily absorbed and doesn’t leave the skin feeling sticky. I’m definitely planning on indulging in some extra pamper time by using this body oil over the winter months.
