Green Olive Body HQ is situated in the heart of Melbourne, a city that we adore for its funky bars, friendly people and coffee that tops any other we’ve tried - there’s a lot to love, but one thing that’s hard to reconcile with is Melbourne weather. The spectrum of weather that we experience makes it difficult for our skin to catch up! As soon as you feel like your skin has adapted to the heat and humidity of summer, you’re dragged into the season of the dry and the flaking.
The key to getting your skin through winter is to keep it moisturised. The cold temperature, wind and artificial heating all contribute to skin becoming extremely dry, leading to things like redness, flaking, itchiness, cracking, or even conditions like eczema and dermatitis. No one wants to be spending the winter season in hibernation because their skin is so dry it’s nearly falling off, so here are some quick tips to keep your skin glowing throughout the winter season:
Keep your showers lukewarm
Drink lots of water
Humidify the air
Avoid toxins and harsh chemicals in skincare products
Use products with natural oils
Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise!
While the first two tips are simple lifestyle changes that you can make immediately, the third, fourth and fifth tips may seem a bit harder… luckily, we make it easy for you ;)
Our hand & body lotions have been designed to keep your skin sustained throughout the winter, with ingredients such as extra virgin olive oil, shea butter, macadamia oil, jojoba oil and cocoa butter, our lotion will help your skin retain moisture for long periods of time. The formula is enriched with calendula, natural vitamin E and beta-carotene to help heal damaged skin as well as protecting it from any further damage.
Not only do you get to enjoy the benefits of healthy, glowing skin, but you can also smell divine in the process! Our favourite winter scent is Cedarwood… its warm, earthy fragrance gives us woodland fairy vibes. If Cedarwood isn’t your cup of tea, that’s ok - our lotion is also available in Rose Geranium and Lemon Verbena.
And remember to moisturise your lips with our beautiful Olive Balm.
