We over 40's women are really up against it in Winter.

As if it's not enough that with age you are losing moisture - bye bye collagen, elastin, hyaluronic acid and all her various family members - then Winter has to come along and tip us over the dry-skin edge.

With the hormonal changes of the peri-menopausal, menopausal, post menopausal woman, dry skin is a little inevitable.

So I've put together my top 5 Winter dry skin products to help you deal with your annoying dry Winter skin.

I'm often surprised - and somewhat baffled - that women with dry skin, don't ask yourselves if your skincare is in fact serving you. If you're using the right skincare, you probs shouldn't really have dry skin. Know what I mean?

Nutritional biochemist, Dr Libby Weaver says that dry skin may indicate;

🚫 an EFA (essential fatty acids) deficiency,

🚫 poor skincare choice,

🚫 thyroid dysfunction,

🚫 poor quality diet,

🚫 a diet too low in fat,

🚫 poor digestion.

If your dry skin issue is especially persistent, consider consulting a specialist.

Dry winter skin tips for mature women

Tried, tested and much-loved by me, below are your top 5 Winter Dry Skin busters that will have you feeling plumped up, smooth, and revitalised fast ... welcoming back some of those depleted family members like collagen, elastin, hyaluronic acid and water ... plus give long-term improvements to your skin way beyond the Winter months.

A quick note before I jump in. You'll notice that all of the following suggestions are 100% natural or organic. The most important products to make the switch to natural and ethical options are those that cover the largest surface area of your body. Your skin absorbs somewhere between 60 - 90% of what you put on it. So Sister, it's worth contemplating making the switch as your health and well-being is important to me. Body lotions, body oils, body washes and scrubs are a great place to start, if you are interested in making the switch to clean, natural beauty.
