Most of us are not thrilled that winter is just around the corner. If you’re like me, you’re probably still trying to defy the weather and wear some of your summer wardrobe.
Since the colder temperatures are inevitable (and buckets of rain here in Vancouver), it’s a good idea to start shifting into your winter skin routine.
How does your skin change in the winter? It tends to be less oily and more dried out. Cold dry air (and heated indoor environments), causes the skin to lose more moisture than it can replace.
The Green Beaver Après -Ski line of products are designed to protect and relieve rough, dry, and itchy skin by helping to minimize loss and keep your skin moist.
For maximum hydration, the products are naturally rich with shea and cocoa butter. They also contain soothing oatmeal and other natural plant extracts like aloe.
Boreal Body Lotion–This super-moisturizing lotion sinks deep into your skin and helps to replenish and protect your skin’s moisture barrier.
Boreal Face Cream–This rich (non-greasy) face cream absorbs quickly and has a velvety texture. I’ve been using this moisturizer with soothing Labrador tea and shea butter as a day and night cream on my sensitive skin (with absolutely no reaction).
Boreal Hand Balm–For instant relief of dry, cracked hands and cuticles, warm up this balm with cocoa butter and plant waxes in the palms of your hands and rub into your skin.
Winter Lip Balm–This soft, long-lasting balm contains aloe and vitamin E to soothe and protect dry winter lips.
Boreal Bath Oil–This hydrating blend of organic balsam fir, black spruce, and sweet birch essential oils has the relaxing and soothing aroma of the Canadian boreal forest.
