A Rejuvenating Tip for Winter Skin

Body+Soul, November/December 2006

On cold winter mornings when no amount of coffee can zap you back to life, your skin deserves a bit of additional TLC. Adopting a reinvigorating ritual will ensure that your epidermis glows despite frightful weather. Rejuvenate with this revitalizing treatment: Before showering, dry-brush your skin from head to toe, and then massage your body with one cup jojoba oil, blended with three drops each of cypress, lime, and cedar wood essential oils. Dry-brushing your skin simultaneously increases circulation and removes dead skin cells, restoring radiant smoothness. Essential oils awaken the senses and treat the symptoms of stress. This soothing routine nourishes the skin and the mind, allowing for a beautiful beginning to the day.


Optimizing your winter skincare regimen is simply a matter of selecting the correct crop of products and incorporating proper care techniques.
