January’s Skin and Body Care Highlights

In January our skin is often dry and irritated with the lack of moisture and forced indoor heat.  One of my favorites products this time of year is Hyaluronic Acid layered under my moisturizer.  Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring polysaccharide in the body that cushions and lubricates joints, nerves, hair, skin and the eyes.  This substance can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water.  So when we apply this to our skin externally moisture is magically drawn to our skin allowing for repair and hydration.   Here is a link to a great hyaluronic product from Sanitas Skincare  http://www.sanitas-skincare.com/store/hyaluronic-concentrate

One of my favorite moisturizers this time of year is Naturopathica’s Cassis Ultra Replenishing Cream which has 10% Hyaluronic Acid and is so luxurious and moisturizing https://www.naturopathica.com/products/cassis_ultra_replenishing_cream

For your lips and any rough areas such as elbows and knees I have been a fan of this Alba Botanical product for years https://www.amazon.com/Alba-Botanica-Petroleum-Multi-Purpose-Jelly/dp/B000OO7546

Go ahead and get comfortable with body oil and body butters if you aren’t already.  They are so nourishing and hydrating.  Here is one of my favorite body oils from Tata Harper https://www.tataharperskincare.com/revitalizing-body-oil

I have been trying this shampoo and conditioner lately and I am in love.  The coconut oil hydrates and smooths your hair.  I have very fine hair and it doesn’t weigh my hair down.  Also it’s 100% gluten free. https://www.amazon.com/Desert-Essence-Coconut-Shampoo-Conditioner/dp/B00N648M66/ref=sr_1_4_s_it?s=beauty&ie=UTF8&qid=1515084651&sr=1-4&keywords=desert+essence

And always drink tons of water!  At a minimum drink eight eight ounce glasses a day, more if you are active, pregnant or breastfeeding.
