I don’t think i’m the only one that feels I need to give my skin a bit more attention during the cooler months! People’s skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis and other rashes tend to be exacerbated by cooler weather. So, read on for how you can support your skin through winter, from the inside out.
1. Herbal Tea (of course!)
The Mayde Tea Energise, organic chai, cacao cinnamon spice and rooibos turmeric chai comprise the spices cardamom, pepper, clove, ginger and cinnamon to improve circulation- resulting in higher amounts of oxygen and nutrients reaching the skin. These herbs also warm and support the digestive system- encouraging adequate absorption of nutrients and excretion of toxins.
2. Warming wholefoods
During the cooler months it is important to incorporate foods with a warming energy like ginger, parsnips, leek, pumpkin, pepper, garlic, leek and cinnamon. (solution- veggie soup with loads of herbs!)
Also, nutrients that reduce inflammation and improve the integrity of the skin are omega 3, zinc, and vitamins A, C and D. Increasing oily fish and other seafood, dark leafy greens, sweet potato, pumpkin and broccoli will ensure a high intake of these nutrients.
