The amazing Luna Bronze community is worldwide.
Whilst LB is still made with total devotion in Australia, we love sending off our little black tubes of goodness to our bronzed, baben’ customers in the Northern Hemisphere. With this in mind, we wanted to share with you our tips and tricks for avoiding dry skin in the winter months.
Beautiful, luscious skin starts on the inside. Eat foods high in omega three fatty acids that have the ‘good fats’ to help your skin to look firm and healthy by strengthening cell membranes. This allows the cell to hold more water, which makes for moister, softer, wrinkle free skin. Foods that are high in omega 3 include seafood, eggs and nuts. Delicious, right?
Linked to internal care is water consumption. Our skin is made up of 64% water, so start reaching for the tap! Dehydrated skin appears duller, and wrinkles, cellulite and pores become more prominent. When the skin is plumped up with water it’s less likely to crack, which means that external particles are less likely to cause irritation.
From the outside, you can prevent cracked, flakey skin during winter by resisting the urge to step into the hottest shower. Besides looking like a red lobster (not attractive), super hot showers deplete your top most skin’s oil barrier. This means that moisture easily escapes, leaving dry, irritated skin. Wash in warm water and you’ll be totally fine.
Finally, after your (warm, not scalding hot) shower, make sure you apply Luna Bronze Gradual Tanning Moisturiser to help your skin retain moisture, reduce dryness and irritation and tighten your skin. The gradual, natural looking tanning properties in LB mean you will continue to sport a summer tan in the winter months. Just because the weather outside is drab and grey doesn’t mean your skin has to be!
And there you have it, friends. Enjoy your LB glow whenever, wherever you are in the world for luxuriously soft skin with a natural looking tan.
