Winter Skin Essentials

Now that winter is here in earnest, it’s time to protect your skin from the icy blasts of snow and wind. Below are our top pics to keep you and your baby in tip top condition!
The Essentials

Raw Scrub and Serum
This combo of exfoliator and deeply moisturising oil is not kidding around. The scrub is a potent mix of ground Robusta coffee beans and essential oils. Just using the scrub on its own will leave your skin feeling baby soft and deeply moisturised (win!) but combine it with the serum and you have winter-proofed your skin. The firming serum helps with loose and uneven skin but it is also deeply moisturising; it absorbs almost immediately and leaves behind a pleasant scent.

Baby & Eve Calendula Multipurpose Baby Balm
Don’t be put off by the “baby” tag, this guy is fantastic for all ages. This balm is great for dry, irritated skin which is all too common in winter. If you or your babe suffers from eczema, give this balm a try! Calendula has been used to treat skin issues for hundreds of years, and this balm makes it super easy to incorporate it into your daily skin care routine.

Substance Baby Lip and Cheek Balm

This is a customer favourite! This balm comes in a handy stick form so you can just pop it in your pocket or your little one’s backpack and you are good to go. Unlike other barrier creams on the market, this guy has calendula (yeah, this guy again), chamomile (skin soothing) and nettle herb (natural astringent and anti-inflammatory) which moisturise and heal the skin. Substance uses a host of carrier oils; sunflower seed oil, coconut oil, jojoba oil and cocoa butter to create a barrier which protects from the elements naturally. Great for baby and for you. Seriously, pick one up, you will use it and wonder how you survived winter without it.

Substance Baby’s Own Chest Rub
If you or anyone in your family has ever had a cold or the flu, you know how much of a bummer it is to feel crummy. Luckily Substance has come up with an all natural remedy to chesty coughs and colds. This little wonder comes in a stick just like the lip and cheek balm, so you can just rub it straight on. Slippery Elm and Ginger root help soothe irritation, while essential oils of Rosemary and Balsam fir offer anti-viral properties to aid in baby’€™s speedy recovery. If you or your family have never experienced a cold or flu…How? What is your secret?
