Prevent skin dehydration in dry weather for a baby-soft physique

Prevent skin dehydration in dry weather for a baby-soft physique

As the harsh, dry summer months come back in full force, our skin often bears the brunt of the season, transforming from supple to parched.


Signs of dehydrated skin

Recognising the signs of dry skin is the first step to reclaiming that coveted softness. When your skin appears lacklustre, feels tight, and exhibits rough patches, it's signalling a plea for hydration. Ignoring these signs could lead to more severe consequences, including itchiness, flakiness, and an increased risk of developing cracks and fissures.


Why the skin gets dry in low humidity

Summer's scorching sun and low humidity levels create a perfect storm for skin dehydration. Our skin, especially on exposed areas like the face and hands, faces increased moisture loss. It's crucial to remember that caring for your skin during the dry months isn't just about vanity; it's a health necessity.


Exfoliate weekly to buff away dead skin

The first step to supple skin is exfoliation. Experts recommend exfoliating with a body scrub twice a week.

This exquisite scrub, enriched with Australian botanicals, harnesses the detoxifying power of pink clay and coconut oil to buff and polish, leaving your skin revitalised.


Moisturise your body skin regularly

The next must be a no-brainer by now. And for those who still need a gentle reminder ever so often: Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise! In dry weather, your body loses hydration even more rapidly than usual, so it's vital to replenish moisture consistently to maintain cellular health and a soft skin. 

Invest in a body lotion that works to strengthen the skin barrier in order to minimise moisture loss to the environment. Our Wonder Body Lotion is infused with Tasmanian Spring Water, composed of a myriad of skin-fortifying essential minerals such as calcium and magnesium. This reduces trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL) and ensures the skin retains moisture more effectively. Our formula is also enriched with three types of hyaluronic acid (yes, you heard that right), fermented sea kelp, and aloe vera to drench the skin with deep, long-lasting hydration.

The result? Soft, silky skin that defies the harsh climate's to rob it of its natural moisture.

Avoid hot showers 

While a steamy shower might be tempting at times, it can strip your skin of essential oils, exacerbating dryness. Opt for lukewarm water instead. This temperature helps preserve your skin's natural oils, preventing excessive drying. Remember, short and sweet is the key – aim for showers that last no longer than 10 minutes.


Don't forget to drink up

Beyond external care, don't forget the inside-out approach to hydration. Drinking water regularly is a simple yet often overlooked step in maintaining skin health. Staying adequately hydrated aids in combating the effects of environmental aridity, promoting a radiant and soft complexion.
