Skincare Q&A

Q: How do I prepare my skin for winter?

A: Since winter months are colder and drier, it’s important to keep your skin moisturized. Moisturizing your face and body is crucial to keeping skin healthy. It’s important to use a lotion that contains nourishing ingredients, such as argan, jojoba, and almond oils.

Q: Do I need SPF protection during cooler months?

A: SPF is important year-round. Even when you think the sun is hiding behind the clouds, it is still a good idea to use SPF. Winter sunburn is rare, but it can happen.

Q: How do I get rid of blackheads?

A: To get rid of pesky blackheads, it’s important to use an exfoliating scrub and drink plenty of water. By plenty of water, I mean at least 60 ounces per day. You can easily purchase a scrub or you can make one. Here is a quick recipe: Mix raw honey and baking soda until a paste forms. Gently scrub your face with this mixture for 2-3 minutes. Rinse with warm water. Use a scrub 2-3 times per week, depending on the severity of blackheads and oily skin.

Q: What toner is best for me?

A: It can be tricky finding a toner that works for your skin type. I keep it simple and make my own, using distilled water, rosewater, and witch hazel; this combination is alkaline and will help balance skin. You can use water and rosewater; witch hazel and water; or combine your own blend. Raw apple cider vinegar is also a good option.
