Marula oil is rich in components necessary for healthy skin, such as antioxidants, vitamins E and C, and oleic acid.
As the leaves fall and the air gets a little nippy in parts of the country, it becomes time to make some changes in your skin care regime. The air becomes drier than in the summer months, and can cause irritations for sensitive skin. The bad news is sensitivity tends to reoccur with seasonal changes. As the air gets dry, the level of moisture your skin is exposed to will decrease, causing dehydration. This may result in rough skin, dull skin tone, skin turning slightly red, itchiness, dryness or even flakiness in some instances.
We might pack up our lighter weight clothes, in favour of heavier sweaters, suits and coats. But it is also time to make changes that will protect your skin, no matter what the weather.
Here are some tips to help you make a smooth seasonal skin transition.
As the weather cools, cut back on the super hot showers and baths. They, in combination with the harsh effects of indoor heating can cause dry flaky skin. If you are going to take a bath, sprinkle a handful of MatsiMela's Marula nut Kalahari Bath Soak into the water and soak for at least 10 minutes. The minerals of the salt are absorbed through the skin, creating a protective moisturising barrier, while through osmosis; the body's toxins are released into the water.
After your bath, why not liberally apply our MatsiMela Marula nut Body Butter which contains a high % of she butter or let your partner assist you with a rub with our Massage Oil - containing a unique blend of special emollients, Avocado oil, Arnica oil, pure Marula oil and Vitamin E - all excellent additives for the maintenance of healthy skin!
Marula oil is rich in components necessary for healthy skin, such as antioxidants, vitamins E and C, and oleic acid. It has free radical scavenging properties as well as a high concentration of palmitic acid which forms a protective coating on the skin's surface. Because of this, it is a great ingredient for dry skin.
