Calendula for Winter Skin
There are some things I miss about winters in New York—bundling up in layers, fresh snowfall, the cozy knocking sounds of steam radiators. Though having grown up in warm and humid South Florida, my skin was not happy with the drastic change in weather, and I’d end up with dryness and redness by way of harsh weather conditions.
As winter approaches, the air grows dry and cold with stronger winds and reduced sunlight. As a result we find our skin struggling with dryness, flakiness, redness, and flare ups of dermatitis, eczema, and psoriasis.
Sunny Calendula is filled with nutrients, antioxidants, essential fatty acids, and other plant compounds to support soft, supple, healthy skin and is the perfect plant ally for wintertime skincare. Calendula’s sunny energy also sweetly brightens our days as they grow shorter and darker.
Calendula helps to:
· Calm and heal redness, windburn, flakiness, and cracked skin.
· Soothe irritated conditions like eczema and psoriasis that can be exacerbated by cold, dry weather.
· Nourish the skin with fatty acids that help the skin barrier better retain water and remain hydrated.
For wintertime care, I recommend pairing Floral Serum and Rose Mist for a boost of Calendula and more. Floral Serum is filled with vitamins, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatories to soften and soothe wintertime skin, while Rose Mist is incredibly calming and hydrating.
Pairing the two offers an ideal balance of moisture (oil) and hydration (water) that supports your skin barrier against harsh weather.
