How To Care for Your Skin, Hair & Nails This Winter

How To Care for Your Skin, Hair & Nails This Winter

Winter is in full swing! If you haven’t turned your beauty routine up a notch, you’re probably suffering the effects! Cold weather often leaves your skin, hair and even nails dull, dry, and damaged.

It’s weird how oily skin and hair appears drier, your nails become weaker and brittle and your scalp itchy or flaky. What do you do? How do you fix this damage? Well, simply turn to essential oils! They are best natural solution to help skin, hair and nails retain their original shine. You just need to choose the right essential oils.


Common hair, skin and nails problems in winter and the best essential oils to solve the problem For

Damaged hair

A change of season sometimes indicates changes in each hair strand. This alters the texture of the hair to a papery consistency that easily breaks when pulled. Sandalwood and geranium oils are the best for your strands and scalp. They help to breathe new life into your damaged hair. Geranium is packed with antioxidants that repair hair while sandalwood strengthens each strand.

Dry, itchy scalp

If you have dry flakes when you comb your hair, or worse, a “snowfall” on dull colored clothing, you could have a condition called seborrhea dermatitis, often caused by candida. The itching scalp is very uncomfortable but not as bad as the hair loss this condition triggers. Tea tree oil, also known as Melaleuca oil, works as an antibacterial and anti-fungal. It can help get rid of candida and, with the help of peppermint, soothes an itchy scalp.

Dull skin

Cold weather can leaveyour  skin feeling dry and looking dull. So, add a few drops of sandalwood and frankincense oils to your moisturiser or face mask. Sandalwood helps to soothe and moisturise the skin, while frankincense works as an anti-inflammatory to skin.

Brittle nails

Dry, brittle nails can also be an issue ! Use frankincense, myrrh and lemon oils on your nails every night to strengthen the nails. Myrrh moisturises, frankincense soothes inflammation and lemon oil strengthens the nails. You also need to pay attention to nutrition. The most common nutritional deficiencies that cause dry, brittle nails are iron and vitamin-B deficiency.
