Keep a healthy glow through the cold months with these top tips

Just like the leaves, the temperatures are dropping and before we know it, we will be knee-deep in winter. Canadian cold can wreak havoc on skin, so apply these winterproof principles to your routine to help keep skin in tip-top shape throughout the cold, blustery months.

1. Stay hydrated

WaterStaying hydrated throughout the winter can be tough, however it’s necessary for not only your skin, but your overall health. This may even mean upping our water-drinking game big time, running a humidifier in your home, or keeping those hot showers to a minimum as extra time under the hot water will dry your skin out. Try warm instead of hot showers in the winter months to save your skin from dehydration. (It’s hard, we know.)

2. Exfoliate

ExfoliateKeeping skin fresh and exfoliated helps remove any dry or dead cells and prepares skin for better product absorption. Ideal for use during the fall and winter months, Huna’s award-winning Clarify Exfoliate Fruit Extract Face Toner with neroli, citrus and strawberry exfoliates, clarifies and brightens gently and naturally, by sloughing away dead cells and leaving behind fresh, new, healthy skin. The mild fruit acid AHA exfoliating blend works overnight while you sleep, and your skin naturally repairs itself. You will wake to beautifully clear, refreshed, renewed and glowing skin.

3. Protect and heal

HealThe best thing to do before heading outside into the cold is to make sure skin is protected. Huna's Skin Nutrition Balm acts as a powerful skin protectant to shield exposed skin from harsh environmental elements like wind and cold. The award-winning balm deeply moisturizes, intensely nourishes, replenishes and protects while promoting healthy healing.

When skin does get compromised throughout the winter—whether it's dry and cracking or appears irritated—giving it extra healing nourishment is a must. Huna's Calendula Healing Oil will help return skin to optimal health... and maintain that. Calendula officinalis has been scientifically demonstrated to promote rapid healing of compromised and wounded skin, promoting healthy skin formation through fast healing, improving hydration and firmness levels in skin, and possessing potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant qualities.

4. Keep your gut healthy

GutThe connection between internal gut health and skin is strong. This is why it is so important to keep gut health in check, especially in the colder months when immune systems are already put to the test. Stay on track by eating healthy foods and avoiding caffeine and alcohol.

For a truly internal/external approach to skin health, sip one cup of Huna's Skin Nutrition Beauty Tea daily. Each Huna Skin Nutrition Beauty Tea has been expert formulated by an herbalist and is targeted toward internal healing of the symptoms associated with particular skin concerns: Revitalize Skin Nutrition Beauty Tea, for age-defying glow; Clarify Skin Nutrition Beauty Tea, for blemish-healing balanced skin; and Nourish Skin Nutrition Beauty Tea, for calming inflammation and soothing reactive skin.

5. Moisturize

MoisturizeLast but not least... the most obvious. The use of high quality moisturizers and serums is key for keeping skin glowing and supple all winter long, when skin is lacking moisture. This is where Huna really has your back, no matter your skin type!

Just a few drops of Revitalize Age-Grace Face Serum provides potent broad-spectrum antioxidant protection against environmental free radical and pollution damage, while giving skin a nourished glow. Clarify Blemish-Control Face Serum is a dream for oily and blemish-prone skin providing the ideal essential fatty acid profile to balance out oily and acnegenic skin, while protecting skin from environmental damage with a potent antioxidant-rich profile. Nourish Calm-Moisture Face Serum is the newest and most moisturizing and healing face serum, developed to intensely moisturize, support healing, and calm and soothe skin conditions.
