It’s a new year, and you know what that means: It’s time to pick a New Year’s resolution that will actually stick. Naturally, for us, 2024 is all about a skincare glow-up. We recommend our Green Tea and Cucumber Collection to help you out.
Resolution: Remember to Use SPF in the Winter
One of the cardinal rules of skincare is to apply – and reapply – SPF every single day, even during the colder months.
Resolution: Exfoliate and hydrate your feet
The skin on our bodies is often overlooked in favor of the skin on our faces… and the skin on our feet tends to be the most neglected of all. And yet, our feet are one of the hardest-working parts of our body! In 2023, we suggest taking better care of your feet with a simple exfoliation and moisturizing routine. Want to invest a little more in caring for your tireless feet? Then why not look into regular foot baths? It’s your skincare routine, you can do whatever you want!
Resolution: Replace your liquid soap with bar soap
Liquid soap and bar soap are just as effective when it comes to washing your hands and getting rid of germs. Knowing this, why not make the switch from liquid soap to bar soap? Bar soap can be a more sustainable option, as it comes in paper or cardboard packaging, and thus avoids the thick plastic bottles and tubes that liquid soap is usually sold in. Did you know bar soap is also more cost-effective than liquid soap? Win-win!
What Are The Benefits Of Cucumber Extract For Skin?
1. Hydrates Your Skin
Skin hydration is the key to keeping your skin healthy and happy. Lack of hydration will lead to dry and flaky skin. It will make a visible difference in your skin’s texture and condition.
2. Reduces Skin Inflammation
Cucumber has anti-inflammatory properties that can reduce skin inflammation effectively. The cooling aspect of cucumber soothes the skin and provides relief from skin irritation.
3. Treats Sunburn
Cucumber can be used to soothe sunburnt skin. In case you have spent long hours under the scorching sun in the summer or the reflective sun off the ski slopes, cucumber can put an end to the burning sensation in your skin. Even though aloe vera is popular for soothing skin, cucumber does the job just as well.
4. Prevents Acne
Cucumber can control the oil production of your skin. It works like an astringent that tightens your skin pores and decreases your pore size. When your oil production is under control and pores are tightened, there is very little chance of an acne breakout.
5. Fights Against Free Radicals
Cucumber is antioxidant-rich and antioxidants are the one strong component that can interfere in the oxidation process by different means. It fights against oxidative damage to your skin caused by free radicals
What Are The Benefits Of Green Tea For Skin?
1. Fights Skin Irritation & Redness
High in polyphenols, green tea is blessed with anti-inflammatory properties. It can soothe your irritated skin, reduce the redness caused by irritation and also decrease the swelling of your skin. Skin conditions like psoriasis, rosacea, dermatitis can be itchy and irritating. Green tea reduces the itchiness and provides relief from irritation.
2. Reduces Acne
Green tea is a powerhouse ingredient that has antioxidant properties, is antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory. This makes it a great combination for treating acne. The polyphenols in green tea can reduce sebum oil production, which is the prime reason for acne breakout.
3. Prevent Early Ageing
Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) in green tea is capable of rejuvenating dying skin cells. It repairs the damaged skin cells and helps in the formation of new ones that keep your skin youthful and free from ageing signs like fine lines and wrinkles.
5. Moisturizes Skin
Green tea is also known as a source of multiple vitamins and essential minerals. It has vitamin A and vitamin E, which keep your skin moisturized and healthy. Applying green tea extracts reduces skin roughness and dryness. This will help you achieve supple and soft skin.
So, try and follow a better skin care routine so you can enjoy your days outside and inside this winter. HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!
