Chapped lips, cold winds and dry skin, yes you guessed it! It’s wintertime!
Heading into the cooler months it is normal to experience dry, itchy and flaky skin which is why it is important to invest more into your skin and layer your skincare just as you would your outfits.
The Sabbia Co team has updated our winter skin hacks and put together 5 skin tips & products to help you battle the changing seasons and get you feeling hydrated again.
Hydration is key in the cooler months. If you notice your skin feeling drier than normal and possibly experiencing some breakouts or redness, then we have the perfect product for you. Packed full of skin-loving ingredients our multi-vitamin moisturiser works to repair, nourish and naturally boost your skins collagen and elastin. Applying this moisturiser as an overnight mask will help to restore and hydrate your skin. Simply add 3-4 pumps, spread evenly over your skin. Make sure to apply a few hours before bed to ensure that sneaky pillow of yours doesn’t steal all the benefits.
Is your skin in need of some extra TLC with those winter winds drying out your skin? It is just as important to be doing your weekly face masks in winter as it is in summer.
Unsure of what mask to choose? Don’t worry we’ve got you covered! Perhaps you’re suffering with breakouts and congestion, then our Charcoal Adaptogen Clay Mask might just be the product for you, this product is designed to calm and soothe the skin while simultaneously drawing out any bacteria and other micro particles. Or maybe your skin is a little more sensitive and in need of rejuvenation, then we would suggest our Matcha Clay Mask. Targeting redness and inflammation this mask allows your skin to feel hydrated and plump.
Here at Sabbia, we love to add a drop of our antioxidant oil to our mask mix during the winter months. Enriched with antioxidants, superfood extracts and Omega 3-6-9 essential fatty acids this product helps to repair your skin barrier and regenerate your skin. You won’t know how good it is until you try it, so just trust me on this one and try it.
As much as it is important to apply your skincare to damp skin in the warmer months it is far more important in the cooler months with the humidity levels much lower. By applying your skincare to damp skin, you are preventing water loss and allowing the products to penetrate to a deeper level of your skin barrier. Think of it a bit like a sponge, the damper it gets the more water it can absorb. Products containing humectants (such as hyaluronic acid and glycerin) retain moisture and assist in the penetration of other skincare products. Rather than drawing moisture from the surrounding air which can often lead to drier skin if the moisture is provided these products are able to work more effectively, allowing your skin to feel hydrated.
Hydrating mists are amazing way to dampen your skin, our Revive face mist is your go-to product to strength and prepare your skin barrier for extra hydration and luminous glow.
If you are using a gel cleanser or water-based cleanser, then it might be a good idea to switch it up for the upcoming winter months. You want to use something that is gentle on the skin and has nourishing properties rather than those containing harsh chemicals. Our cleanse kits are the perfect alternative for a gentle cleanse. Meanwhile our Botanical Glow Cleanser is an essential too deeply cleanse, balance, nourish and reduce breakouts and inflammation.

Now you might be thinking sunscreen is only for summer. Well, that’s where you would be wrong. Wrinkles, pigmentation, loss of elasticity, skin texture changes and skin cancer are many of the risks your skin faces without SPF. Although the UV rays may not be as direct in winter, they can be just as harmful which is why it is essential to be using sunscreen all year round.
