Dec 20, 2018

How to fight the winter cold? Now you can with the sweetness of natural cosmetics. You just need a few ingredients and our recipes to create nourishing and moisturizing creams: precious allies for our skin to be stored in skin care cream containers.

Cold can be a real problem for the most sensitive skin. Common symptoms are dry lips, cracked hands and a reddened face skin. What’s the reason? The blood vessels, contracting to maintain internal heat, provide less nourishment to the skin, making it more sensitive to cold and more irritable. Moreover, the reduced exposure to sunlight causes a decrease in vitamin D, a crucial element for a luminous skin. After discovering the essential products for summer skin care, today we will learn some homemade remedies to face winter with extra energy.

This cream makes the most of cocoa butter’s properties, a precious ally of beauty routine and the main ingredient of many cosmetics and homemade recipes. Cocoa butter is a food product consisting of a mixture of fats obtained from the seeds of the cocoa plant (Theobroma cacao), originating in South America and other tropical countries. Its main substance, theobromine, is cardiotonic and vasodilatory, while the high quantity of saturated fats gives it nourishing and emollient properties. Easy to absorb, it is therefore used to heal even the driest and chapped skin. In addition, the polyphenols stimulate the production of collagen, giving elasticity to the skin and helping to fight the effects of free radicals with a natural anti-aging effect.
