Winter may bring chilly, uncomfortable weather, but it also provides us with an opportunity to care for ourselves in unique and nourishing ways. In this blogpost, we explore rejuvenating Winter rituals – let's discover how these simple practices can elevate our wellbeing and bring comfort during the Winter months.
Face Masks: Winter Skincare Delight
Winter can be harsh on our skin, leaving it dry, flaky, and in need of some extra TLC. Enter the winter skincare hero – face masks. These potent skincare treats are packed with nourishing ingredients that can help replenish lost moisture and restore a radiant complexion.
Opt for hydrating face masks enriched with natural ingredients like aloe vera, or hyaluronic acid such as in the Biotulin® Bio Cellulose Face Masks. These ingredients work wonders in locking in moisture and soothing dry, irritated skin. If you suffer from facial skin conditions such as eczema, rosacea or acne, try the Dermatologist-developed skinicer® Repair Mask with the unique Spiralin® extract instead.
Apply your chosen face mask once or twice a week, and take this opportunity to unwind in a warm bath or with a good book. The mask will not only rejuvenate your skin but also provide a much-needed mental retreat from the winter blues.
Biotulin® Bio Cellulose Face Masks
Made from innovative bio cellulose material, Biotulin® Bio Cellulose Face Masks don't dry out or fall off – but mould to the face like a second skin so that the half bottle of natural, proven, skin-smoothing ingredients from Biotulin can best absorb. For smoother, plumper skin in 30 minutes.
skinicer® Repair Mask is a naturally active, Dermatologist-developed cream mask which is left on for 20 minutes (or overnight). Any leftover mask is wiped – not washed – off. Developed for dry, extremely sensitive or allergic skin but suitable for any skin type, for softer, hydrated and more supple skin.
Extra Tip: For Best Results & A Mini-Facial
Did you know that skincare can absorb up to 70% better when applied to freshly exfoliated skin? So if you want the best results from your daily skincare products as well as weekly face masks, be sure to include a gentle, hydrating exfoliation such as KOSHO Multi-Effect Peeling with your weekly mask routine.
Matcha Tea: Warmth & Antioxidant Boost
During Winter, the idea of curling up with a warm cup of tea becomes even more inviting. But instead of the usual brew, why not infuse your routine with the magic of Matcha tea? Matcha, a finely powdered green tea, is renowned for its exceptional, natural and proven health benefits and soothing properties.
Packed with antioxidants, Matcha can help strengthen the immune system and protect the body from seasonal ailments. Its unique preparation involves whisking the powder with hot (not boiling!) water, creating a velvety green tea with a subtly sweet, earthy flavour.
Enjoying a cup of Matcha tea in the morning or as an afternoon pick-me-up can be a delightful way to stay warm and nourished during the colder days.
Organic Matcha Tea
100% pure, organic Matcha green tea from the southern Japanese island of Kyūshū. Rich, smooth flavour & highest levels of antioxidants. Drink one cup daily for proven health benefits.
Japanese Matcha Whisk
This handmade Matcha whisk, also known as chasen, is essential for mixing the ultra fine, granite-mill ground Matcha tea powder and achieving the light, delicate froth.
Hand Creams: TLC for Your Hands
Our hands bear the brunt of Winter's cold, often becoming dry and rough due to exposure to the elements. Making a rich and nourishing hand cream part of your rejuvenating Winter wellness rituals can work wonders in keeping your hands soft and supple.
Look for hand creams that contain ingredients like shea butter, such as Biotulin® Handkiss which also contains 24 carat gold (not glittery!) which leaves hands feeling smooth as silk.
Keep a small tube of hand cream in your bag or on your desk, and apply it whenever your hands need a little tender loving care. The act of gently massaging the cream into your skin also provides a soothing moment of self-care.
For skin that is extremely sensitive or allergic, or anyone suffering from skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, opt for the skin gel, with the naturally effective, active antimicrobial and cell-regenerative properties of Spiralin extract instead.
Aromatherapy: To Lift Your Spirits
Aromatherapy can be a powerful tool to uplift your mood and alleviate winter blues. Essential oils derived from plants have been used for centuries to promote relaxation and emotional well-being. During the winter months, when daylight is scarce and the weather can be gloomy, incorporating aromatherapy into your daily life can make a significant difference.
Choose essential oils like lavender, chamomile, or bergamot for their calming and soothing properties. Alternatively, citrus oils such as sweet orange or lemon can help energise and invigorate your senses.
You can use essential oils in a variety of ways, such as adding a few drops to a diffuser, creating a DIY room spray, or diluting them in carrier oils for a relaxing massage. The delightful scents will create a serene atmosphere and provide a much-needed boost to your winter wellness journey.
Biotulin Hans & Franz
Smoothing Body / Cleavage Lotion
Biotulin Hans & Franz Cleavage Smoothing Lotion is the perfect lotion for a naturally beautiful bust and a smoother, wrinkle-free chest, cleavage and body. Combining amino acids with the skin-smoothing Biotulin ingredients, the mild grapefruit scent provides an uplifting moisturising experience.
Warm Oil Massages: Nourish Your Body and Mind
Indulge in the ancient practice of warm oil massages, known as "Abhyanga" in Ayurveda. During winter, our bodies can feel stiff and lethargic due to the cold weather. A warm oil massage not only provides deep nourishment to your skin but also helps improve blood circulation, soothe sore muscles, and calm the mind.
Select a nourishing oil such as sesame, almond, or coconut oil and gently warm it in a bowl placed in hot water. Starting from your head to your toes, massage the warm oil into your skin using gentle, circular motions. Focus on areas that feel particularly tense or dry. After the massage, wrap yourself in a warm towel or robe and let the oil soak in for about 15-30 minutes before taking a warm shower to rinse it off.
The warm oil massage not only nurtures your body but also offers a moment of self-pampering and relaxation. Make this ritual a part of your weekly routine to reap its full benefits throughout the winter season.
