Balms Go Where Moisturisers Fear to Tread in Winter.
***Win Gift Packs
It’s that time of year again, the nights are chilly and the days are short. Cold wind and rain outside and air conditioning inside can play havoc with skin, causing dryness, chaffing and redness in the winter months.
“Cold weather means there is less moisture in the air outside which can cause the skin to dehydrate. Moving from air conditioning inside to cold weather outside can affect the natural moisture levels in the skin which can become dry and chapped,” says Mr Michael Wu, general manager, Nature’s Care Australia.
Mr Wu says that balms, as opposed to moisturisers can often be more effective in maintaining the natural moisture in the skin, helping to prevent dryness and sooth redness in colder weather.
“Moisturisers often tend to contain more humectants which draw water from the lower levels of the skin to rehydrate the upper levels of the skin. Balms on the other hand, tend to contain a higher level of occlusives which help seal in the natural moisture in the skin, acting as a barrier against external conditions,” he said.
In an all-natural base of beeswax, sunflower seed oil and Vitamin E, Nature’s Care Paw Paw Balm (30g, price $5.99), delivers superb hydration and helps to protect skin from the drying effects of the elements.
“Paw paw is a wonderful skin healer. It is packed with the classic ‘skin vitamins’ A, E and C and when combined in a rich premium base, it makes a wonderfully soothing balm to keep skin looking and feeling great during the colder months,” said Mr Wu.
Use Nature’s Care Paw Paw balm all over after the bath or shower and on exposed skin when out and about to keep skin soft and hydrated from top to toe.
Mr Wu said that lips are often the first to see the affects of winter de-hydration.
“The skin on our lips is much thinner than on the rest of our face and body and they do not contain sweat glands so they are more vulnerable to the drying effects of cold wind and air conditioning,”’
