Fight Dry Skin and Hair Loss this Winter with Herbs

Fight Dry Skin and Hair Loss this Winter with Herbs

 

Do you have skin that refuses to retain moisture in the winter, no matter what you do? Does your hair shed more in the winter due to scalp dryness? While many people welcome the cooler winter weather in Arizona, the combination of cold and dry can damage your skin, even if you have a naturally oily or blemish-prone complexion. In this article, we’ll give you a few strategies to keep your skin and hair healthy, all season long.

 

  • Drink a ginger-containing tea, like Lady Ginger. When the temperature drops, your body naturally draws blood flow away from the surface of your body to conserve heat. The result is lower circulation to, and poor hydration of, your skin. Ginger does wonders to alleviate this by raising the body’s temperature and boosting circulation to the skin, including the scalp and upper regions of the body. Especially if you suffer from winter eczema, give this strategy a try.

 

  • Brew calendula tea or infuse calendula into coconut or neem oil to heal dry or irritated skin. Calendula is one of the oldest heal-all herbs used for the skin and is superbly effective at fighting skin inflammation.

 

  • Soak your skin in a bath of oat milky tops or Love My Hair tea. This will be naturally hydrating and healing to your skin.

 

  • Consume an alkaline diet, consisting of high amounts of leafy green vegetables, low sugar, and low animal protein. Maintaining pH-balanced blood is so important for healthy skin. If your blood is too acidic, your body can use your skin as a detoxification channel (similar to a second liver or third kidney) to get rid of waste matter, leaving your skin irritated and prone to breakouts. You might be surprised that merely switching to a more alkaline diet can heal many skin ailments.

 

  • If your skin needs an extra boost, try adding a 1% hyaluronic acid serum topically to your skin and scalp. This will create immediate hydration and will prevent dehydration-related hair thinning and hair loss.
