More THANN Enough To Satisfy Your Skin This Winter

Blessed are those souls who are currently basking under the hot sun while lying on soft white sand beaches but we, in Canada and in other parts of the world not so warm at the moment, are under the frenzy of taking out our coziest of parkas, matching our mittens and toques and stocking up on jars of hot chocolate powder.

It’s those three to four months that yes, the streets turn into a beautiful dreamy wonderland and the air is crisp with winter breeze but it’s also the time when our skin suffers the most. From chapped lips to dry and flaky skin, our radiant golden glow in the spring and summer is replaced with dull, sallow complexion. But it doesn’t have to be like that! There are a number of ways that we can keep our skin not only looking healthy but deeply moisturized and protected against the harsh elements.

Here are a number of tips from THANN that will ensure you have gorgeous looking skin this winter:

Exfoliate, Exfoliate, Exfoliate

Hot showers and hot baths seem to be an instant relief against the frigid cold outside and they are. However, they can also dry out your skin and deplete the body of its natural oils. How do you prevent that from happening?

Firstly, instead of using scalding hot use water, use tepid water during your bath or shower. Secondly, use THANN Sea SaltBody Scrub to thoroughly exfoliate your skin to get rid of dead skin cells – this will allow your moisturizers or body butter to penetrate deeper and stay in your skin longer.

Hydrate and Moisturize

One of the best things you can do this winter is to show your skin the ultimate love and pampering. Apply nourishing creams and oils such as the THANN Rice Extract Body Milk, Rice Bran and Olive Oil Body Spray, Hand Creams and Massage Oils and of course, the world famous THANN Shiso Body Butter – this will leave your skin soft, and luxuriously silky even when the temperature drops way below zero.

THANN has a wide range of bath and body products that will ensure that your face and your entire body is prepared and protected this winter. All our products come in different scents based on the science and art of aromatherapy principles: Aromatic Wood, Oriental Essence, Mediterranean Floral, Sea Foam, Jasmine Collection and the Shiso Collection.
