Winter is the season where the earth has shed its leaves, and the air becomes crisp and dry. We begin to reflect the changes of the seasons, and with it come dry skin. Our Spa Therapists have put together their top tips to achieve that summer glow, even in the middle of winter…
Firstly it’s essential to make sure your airways are clear so your body and soul can breathe with clarity. We recommend using Temple Spa Breath Of life – this product is an 100% essential oil that can be used in the oil burner with a little bit of water or you can place this onto a tissue and breathe in.
This will leave you with a clear head, feeling stimulated and revived and you’ll experience the essential oil’s antibacterial and antiviral healing properties. The key ingredients are eucalyptus and tea tree which are both brilliant for helping those winter colds and stuffiness you may be suffering.
We’re huge fans of the Muslin cloth – Sound strange? The reason being is you could use this over the top of a hot bowl of water and BREATH OF LIFE to help detox your sinuses – a common winter infection is sinusitis. The Muslin cloth is a natural fabric that isn’t going to drag or irritate sensitive skin and can also be used a hot or cold compress, great for relieving any headaches. Want to buff away any dead winter skin? Use the cloth as part of your facial routine to gently cleanse deep down into the skin and remove any dead skin cells.
During winter it’s common for your body to use a lot of energy tackling cold air, wind and central heating, which is why we recommend teaming up with our Temple Spa Life Defense, one of our favourite winter essentials. This is an SPF 25 moisturizer that is going to work brilliantly during winter, using its protective barrier that helps against free radicals, city pollution and cold temperatures. It provides broad Spectrum UVA/UVB protection and also helps defend against dryness – the perfect tool to achieve radiant skin.
During winter we all find that we need a reboot and some detoxifying superpowers. This is why we recommend our Temple Spa Work it Out Oil. This product is used all year round but especially brilliant in the winter, known as a “Body boosting blend”. During January when we focus on wellness and exercise our muscles might feel like they are taking their toll, so this is the perfect prescription. You can massage Work it Out Oil onto the back, legs or anywhere that has aches and pains – or use in the bath to get that special spa feeling.
We’re probably right in saying that you’ve spent a lot of your life searching for the perfect moisturiser. Well, look no further. Our Temple Spa Double Cream, an award winner of the 2017 Beauty Bibles, is a FANTASTIC moisturiser which is going to be perfect in the winter months. It is a super powering moisturiser blended with avocado oil and vitamin E, that alleviates dehydration, rehydrates, restores and nourishes autumn/winter fatigued skin.
Be the light during the winter months and achieve a healthy and radiant glow with Temple Spa Temple Spa Purification – the ultimate detoxing face mask. A rich marine land mud that is great for congested and dull skin which will help banish blocked pores, breakouts and purifying the skin. Ingredients such as Kaolin clay and tea tree are going to give that healthy glow.
Cracked lips… need we say more? A perfect winter essential for when your lips are feeling dry and flaky is our Temple Spa Read My Lips; blended with shea butter, avocado, sunflower and grapeseed. Buff away your dry chapped lips complete with a balm to leave them feeling silky smooth.
