We have gathered five essential moisturizing products to keep your skin hydrated this winter! These products use only pure and effective ingredients, providing an affordable solution for dry skin. Transform your skin into hydration heaven!
1. Face Mask
This can be a fun skincare gift set for yourself this winter season. The Alabaster Face Mask powder is formulated with gentle substances that are rich in nutrients, including oats and goat milk, designed to boost skin moisture levels, soften skin and brighten your complexion. Packed with vitamins and minerals proven to be effective for your skin, goat milk is recognized as a skin superfood. Goat milk’s pH level closely matches our skin, making it an excellent ingredient for a mild cleanser suitable for all skin types, unlike some commercial products with harsh surfactants that strip away natural moisture and oil from skin.
Other ingredients such as rhodymenia palmata, a red edible algae, and calendula flower provide antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-aging properties. Feed the skin with Sealuxe’s Alabaster Face Mask! Simply mix one tablespoon of the powder with one teaspoon of water to create a creamy paste. Apply to your face for 10-15 minutes for best results, then rinse off thoroughly with warm water while it is still moist. Check out other face masks like seaweed, rose, and charcoal by Sealuxe.
2. Lip Balm
Explore our variety of lip balms in delightful flavours: berry, vanilla, mint, caramel, and cotton candy – perfect for soothing chapped lips. Key ingredients like shea butter, beeswax, and avocado oil contribute to their nourishing formula.
Ensure you have a lip balm jar, can, or tube within easy reach – whether in your bag, pocket, car, office desk, or nightstand. These lip balms come in handy after a day spent outdoors battling the wind or staying indoors with the heater on. In environments with low humidity, it is common to experience dry skin, lips, eyes, and hair. Make sure to always stay hydrated and drink water even on cold, chilly days.
3. Hair Oil
For those with dry or damaged hair, we recommend the pecan oil hair serum/ hair mask from Nuez Acres, an Indigenous-owned and operated Company. The hair serum is available in two sizes: 30mL and 15mL. It is designed to protect, nourish, and improve hair and scalp using a blend of restorative natural oils such as cold-pressed pecan oil, jojoba seed oil, argan oil and ylang ylang. (Always perform a spot test/ patch test to ensure no allergies.)
The nutrient-rich oil delivers deep conditioning and strengthening effects to hair follicles, promoting shine, softness, growth, and strength while preventing breakage. To use, simply apply 3-6 drops to the scalp after wetting your hair, and then evenly distribute through the hair. It is recommended to use the product within 6-8 months once it is opened.
4. Body Butter/ Body Lotion
This ultra rich driftwood body butter with ingredients like shea butter, coconut oil, jojoba seed oil effortlessly absorbs into the skin, providing a soothing moisture and a healthy-looking glow to your skin. With plant-derived oil being used, this body cream gives a cozy, woodsy scent for a comforting experience. If you lean towards a floral scent, Sealuxe offers rose body butter, available at the same price and size. Secure a jar today before they run out!
5. Body Oil/ Facial Oil
Last but not least, we have body/ facial oil, a perfect solution for achieving optimal moisture retention and allows skin to retain water during the frosty season, especially for dry or dull skin. Soulful Indulgence’s Massage Bath & Body Oil can be either massaged onto the skin or added to your bath. Infused with rice bran oil and sunflower seed oil, known for their high absorbency, and richness in omega-6 fatty acids and vitamin E, this oil is suitable for all skin types. It acts as a protective shield against free radicals, leaving your skin texture feeling smoother and preventing skin dehydration.
For those seeking a facial serum, we recommend Sealuxe’s nutrient-rich seaweed Nourish Facial Oil. This serum addresses concerns such as pigmentation, dark spots, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone. After cleansing and toning your skin, massage 5-8 drops of the oil onto your entire face and neck, excluding the eye area
