As the coolness of autumn has started to be a regular feature of our weather reports, we are reminded that the winter’s crisp is not far away. Whilst this gives us a fantastic reason to re-evaluate the current state of our wardrobes and shop for new weather-appropriate ‘essentials’ (there are a new pair of ankle boots with my name written all over them!) we also need to re-evaluate how we treat our skin. Colder months bring with them the threat of dry and dare we say, scaly skin. Lower humidity levels mean less moisture in the air - this can leave our skin prone to becoming dry, dull and itchy, especially if you work or live with a dry heating system 24/7. The solution? A great moisturiser used the right way.
Luckily Pure Fiji has developed a range of skin care products that not only keep skin soft and supple, but also capture the essence of summer - perfect for banishing frosty blues! Pure Fiji uses the best blends of natural coconut oil and flower extracts to moisturise and condition your skin. They are also passionate about maintaining and contributing to the preservation of the Pacific culture, way of life and environment. Their socially and ecologically driven consciousness is a real bonus on top of their amazingly fragrant products!
PURE FIJI hydrating body lotion in coconut contains an exotic blend of nut extracts and fresh coconut milk designed to nourish skin and maintain moisture. The hydrating lotion houses a complete bio-network of essential nutrients and vitamins for your skin; the perfect defence against harsh climates. Absorbed quickly, the lotion can be applied right before dressing and won’t feel gluey against your skin - perfect for everyday use.
To use effectively to stop dry winter skin in its tracks, apply directly after showering. Take care to keep the water temperature from being scalding, as tempting as this might be! Very hot water can dry out the skin and damage the small capillaries beneath the skin's surface, causing redness and uneven skin tone. Once out of the shower, pat dry and apply Pure Fiji moisturiser straight away to lock in moisture. Apply liberally, all over your body.
Now close your eyes and take in the exotic scent of Pure Fiji. Imagine you are holidaying on a tropical island, in the warmth of the sun away from your daily grind. Then open your eyes (and face reality) with the assurance that at least the cold weather hasn’t gotten to your soft and sumptuous skin and that Pure Fiji Hydrating Body Lotion can take you away again on your very next application.
Are you vigilant with your skin care during colder seasons? Or are you a little bit naughty and wait until spring approaches to treat scaly skin before anyone gets a chance to see your bare pins? Let me know - I won’t tell! – Lauren
