Montana's Winter Skin Ritual For Dry and Tired Skin

How do we maintain our beautiful glow during the dry and cold winter? The lack of humidity in the air during the wintertime paired with reverse air conditioning, cold winds and many hot showers can dry out your skin making it feel rough and tight, sometimes even chapped, itchy or hypersensitive. When you experience these symptoms it’s important to note that your skin barrier’s ability to function is compromised. These harsher external aggressors can weaken and damage our skin barrier, making it difficult for our skin to retain moisture leaving us more susceptible to toxins, breakouts, dryness and skin conditions like eczema. The best way to nurture your skin through these cooler months is by nourishing and protecting your skin cells to strengthen your skin barrier function. Our beautiful founder, Montana, shares her tried and true skin ritual to combat dry skin and maintain her healthy glow during the cooler months.

Infused with the calming and anti-fungal properties of Lemon Myrtle plus our favourite natural antiseptic, Finger Lime; this combination is designed to provide hydration, clean and protect from bacteria, all whilst calming and reducing red sensitive skin.

2. EXFOLIATE

3. HYDRATE + HEAL (AM)

FINGER LIME SERUM

Take three deep breaths, place 2-3 drops of Finger Lime in the palm of your hand and evenly apply it to your face to help hydrate, nurture and protect your face from the harsh winter climate. Abundant in anti-inflammatory properties, Finger Lime is designed to work on a cellular level to help repair the skin barrier, to lock in moisture (and moisture binding substances), and keep toxins out. This can help prevent dry skin, acne, skin sensitivity and reactive skin conditions like eczema, rosacea and dermatitis.

4. NOURISH + GLOW (PM)

KAKADU PLUM SERUM

Applying 2-3 drops of Kakadu Plum in the evening can improve your skin vitality, elasticity, firmness and brighten your complexion. Abundantly rich in Vitamin-C and antioxidants, our Kakadu Plum serum works beneath the surface to boost your skins collagen production which can help combat any fine lines brought on by the dry winter climate.

5. INDULGE + ENJOY

YOUR SIMPLE SELF LOVE ROUTINE

Take special care this winter to nourish your body with nutritional foods and drink plenty of water; and ensure you make space to slow down and nurture your mind, body and soul. Take a moment, a few deep breaths, light a candle, look in the mirror and say something nice to yourself - because you deserve it. Glowing skin is more than just what we put on it - it’s a light that comes from the inside and one we share with others around us as we float through our day.
