The best way to bathe to avoid winter skin
It isn't just your face that can be affected by lost moisture during the winter months. All of your skin can feel the effects of colder temperatures outdoors, as well as dryer air indoors caused by central heating.
Winter is one of the most damaging seasons for your skin as it leaches moisture that skin needs to stay healthy, repair itself and remain supple. If it isn't harsh winds and cold temperatures, it is the temptation to put the heating on full, which may warm your toes but does disastrous things to your skin.
Your face is the easiest area to look after and so it can be easy to avoid or repair winter skin with a good skin care routine. However, those hard to reach areas also need extra care. Luckily a bath can help to add more moisture to skin and keep it looking beautiful and feeling fabulous.
An important thing to remember is that stepping into a hot bath can actually strip more moisture from your skin. While you may be tempted to sit in a bath that is steaming away, use warm water rather than hot. This will protect your skin and ensure it doesn't suffer any more.
If your skin is particularly dry, you should avoid an extended soak. Staying in the water too long can also be detrimental to your skin so keep your bath to no longer than 20 minutes.
Use natural oils in your bath rather than bubbles or other types of detergents. Soaps can dry your skin out further by removing too much of your skin's natural oil. By adding oil to your bath you ensure the water doesn't wash too much away and also that you are adding extra moisture to your parched skin.
When you get out of the bath, to get the most of the oils you have soaked in, you should pat yourself dry with a clean towel rather than rubbing. Not only is this more gentle for your skin, it also makes sure you aren't removing too much of the oil from your skin.
If you find that your skin is still dry in particular areas, try applying extra oil to them. This will ensure that they don't dry out any more and will fully lock moisture in. It is a good idea to apply oils to your whole body after a shower, as they aren't as beneficial for your skin as baths.
- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHello Anoni, Ashwagandha is a stress reliever and controls the production of stress-inducing hormones. High production of cortisol can compromise the production of progesterone. When Ashwagandha controls cortisol, it automatically stabilises progesterone production levels. Hope this helps :)
- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHello, As Ashwagandha is an adaptogen, there are numerous ways that it can help you depending on what time of day it is. Most people like to use Ashwagandha in the morning as it has some benefits when it comes to naturally reducing anxiety which could help throughout the day. However, others take it at night to help with sleep. If you are having difficulty sleeping, take it before bed. Otherwise, it does not matter at what time of day you take it as long as you are consistent from day to day.

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Debbie, There is 340 mg of herb per capsule in our Ashwagandha. We usually recommend 2 capsules a day which are equivalent to 680mg. It is possible to take up to 1200mg daily, but only over short periods, so we prefer to stay well within the limits of safety, while still dosing enough to see the benefits. We always recommend to discuss taking the supplement with your GP before hand if you'd like to increase dosages. I hope this helps :)
