Winter Wellness: Boost Your Well-being with Natural Skincare and Self-care Tips

Winter Wellness: Boost Your Well-being with Natural Skincare and Self-care Tips

Crisp air nips at your cheeks, carrying the scent of wood smoke and pine
needles. Breathtaking sunsets colour the sky in fiery hues, and cosy nights
beckon with mugs of hot cocoa.

There is so much beauty and joy in these
winter days, but of course this season also brings its fair share of challenges.
Reduced daylight can often leave us feeling less energised, the biting wind
makes our skin cry out for moisture, and that natural urge to hibernate seems
to settle in deep.

While the season has its hardships, we can definitely embrace this time of year
without sacrificing our well-being. That's where Soapery 21 can support you
with natural, sustainable self-care and skincare rituals. We believe in
harnessing the power of nature's finest ingredients to nourish your body and
soul, all while leaving a gentle footprint on our planet.

So, let’s delve into natural, winter wellness. In this post we'll share our self-care
practices and natural skincare tips and products tailored to combat dry skin,
boost your mood, and leave you feeling revitalised even when the days are

Take Extra Care of Your Skin:

Winter's icy grip doesn't just extend to our fingers and toes; it wreaks havoc on
our skin too. The harsher winds, colder temperatures, and even indoor heating
can all contribute to dryness, irritation, and flakiness.

A carefully chosen natural skincare routine empowers us to nurture our skin
from the inside out. Forget harsh chemicals and embrace the gentle touch of
nature. Rediscover the joy of comfortable, healthy skin and let winter be a
season of self-care, not skin struggles.

Read on to explore our favourite products, designed to comfort, protect, and
rejuvenate skin through even the coldest months.

Cleanse with Kindness:

Ditch harsh products that strip away moisture and opt for gentle cleansers. These
natural wonders remove impurities without disrupting our skin's delicate
balance, leaving it feeling clean, refreshed, and ready for the next step.

The Gentle Cleansing Balm: specially formulated here at Soapery 21 to be
gentle and effective at cleansing skin, effective at removing all make up. Its
unique blend of oils is suitable for all skin types, nourishing for dry and
dehydrated skin and effective at clearing congestion and calming irritated

We’ve added Lavender & Bergamot essential oils for their antiseptic and
healing qualities and Grapefruit for its astringent qualities, opening pores and
helping to tone the skin.

Nourish & Replenish:

Winter winds deplete our skin's natural moisture reserves. Fight back with
nourishing serums and rich moisturisers packed with hydrating ingredients
and plant oils, these winter warriors deliver deep nourishment, plumping up
our skin and restoring a healthy glow.

and to keep it well hydrated throughout the day. We’ve added uplifting

while you sleep. We’ve added Lavender and Cedarwood essential oils to
harness their calming properties for both skin and mind as well as Neroli and
Frankincense for their gentle skin toning effects.

Don't Forget the TLC:

While cleansing and moisturising are essential, winter skincare goes beyond
the basics, it’s time to treat our skin with an extra dose of love. From soothing
face masks to overnight repair balms, targeted treatments address specific
concerns, leaving our skin feeling pampered and protected.

winter with nutrient rich cocoa butter and soothing calendula and vanilla

soften your skin, without leaving it feeling greasy. Blended with our balancing,
calming and restful ’Relax' blend which includes Lavender, Bergamot &

Soothing Self-Care Rituals:

While winter's frosty beauty is undeniable, it often leaves many of us feeling
depleted and drained. The shorter days, colder weather, and winter viruses can
take their toll. One simple way to shore up our resilience against the winterblues is building gentle self-care rituals into our daily routines whenever we can.

By nurturing our mind and body, we build resilience, boost our mood, and
support ourselves to emerge from the season feeling recharged and ready to
take on spring. So, let's look at some self-care practices that will transform our
winter experience.

Bathe in Tranquility:

Turn any bathroom into a natural spa haven with our Snow Shower Steamers
and Restore Bath Soak. Each infused with soothing essential oils such as
lemongrass, lavender and grapefruit essential oils, our Bath and Shower spa
products melt away tension and calm the mind, supporting a restful self-care
routine. Imagine sinking into warm water, inhaling the calming aroma, and
letting your worries dissolve, a winter sanctuary for both your body and soul.

Breathe in Serenity:

Embrace the power of aromatherapy with our Frosty Morning Diffuser Blend, a
crisp, fresh and woody scent to cleanse your space and calm your mind. This
winter aroma blend includes Balsamic Scots Pine, woody Cedarwood and
Petitgrain with a gently warming hint of Cinnamon. Take a few deep breaths
and allow the calming aroma to fill the room, leaving you feeling centred and

Remember, self-care doesn't have to be complicated or time-consuming. Even
the very smallest, intentional moments such as lighting a candle at dusk or
taking a few deep breaths in the crisp winter air can help us to feel grounded
in the season and make a significant difference to our winter experience.
So, prioritise yourself, embrace these self-care practices, and enjoy a winter
filled with calm and well-being. These moments of intentionality, big or small,
each weave a cosy blanket of self-care and help us thrive even when the days
are dark.
