With winter fast approaching its time to think about protecting your skin, both internally and externally from the elements.
There is nothing more drying for the skin than going from the cold autumnal air into a warm room and then back again. This constant change in temperature and exposure to the outside elements means at this time of year our skin has to work twice as hard to mainting its moisture and health.
One of the best internal skin foods is Flax Oil, it is rich in omega 3 oil which is great for the skin. Hemp oil is also a great skin food as this has a great balance of all of the essential omega oils that are essential for skin health amongst other benifits. Flax oil is available from Scoopaway from £5.69 for 250ml, and Hemp is available from £6.19 for 260ml. Also, dont forget the importance of drinking plenty of Fluids throughout the day, especially water.
Nothing beats a good protective moisturiser and finding one that suits you is the key. For the face, Scoopaway sells various moisturisers, from Burts Bees Day Cream and Night Cream to Weleda Wild Rose Day Cream.
