Winter is here but you don't have to let your skin suffer (too)

Winter is coming may be a great line in Frozen or for King of Thrones fans but to many of us, winter just means dry, chapped skin. Cold winter winds can rip micro layers of skin off, exposing and drying the natural oils below. Add to the inner environment artificial heat that drys skin and airways. Outdoors or indoors, skin suffers in the winter.

But there is hope. Try a couple of these simple products from Natural Healing Tools to survive winter in style.

Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize – It is extremely important to moisturize the skin - winter is as important as in summer. Dr. Willard’s Aloe Gel is a great solution to care for the skin all year long, as it contains natural ingredients, as well as the Willard Water® patented catalyst. The Aloe in this formula is non-scented and formulated to dry quickly without any stickiness.

Don't forget your nose... that is the most abused skin in the winter! Keep on hand our Nasal Rescue.

Invest in a Humidifier – Cold and dry air is an enemy to the skin, sucking the moisture out, and causing the skin to dry, crack, flake and age faster.

Try our Warm Mist Humidifier. This version allows for essential oils to be added to the mist, creating therapeutic effects for your entire family. 

Masks – A great moisturizing mask can eliminate dry skin and give a needed boost of morale. There are a variety of scrubs and masks available but our favorite is the Episilk Moisture mask. 

Or just bathe in natural moisture with our Ancient Mineral Bath Flakes. No crazy perfumes. Just purely natural soft skin - while taking your magnesium. 

Just don't let winter get ahead of you by taking a moment to take care of your skin!
