Daily exposure to weather can be extremely damaging to your skin if
you’re not careful. With each season comes different conditions, each
equally a concern to our bodies.
Spring is a time when the weather is warming up and it’s just hot
enough to start spending extra time outdoors and in the sun. Sun
exposure can lead to damage to your skin including wrinkles, dryness due
to dehydration, and sun spots. Dry, rough skin can be treated by
moisturizing the skin more frequently and by keeping yourself hydrated
with water. Keeping your body moisturized will help create a barrier and
help prevent direct exposure to the sun’s harmful rays. This will
prevent your skin from cracking and toxins from entering. After a long
day, a sugar scrub will help remove the unwanted buildup of oils and
products from the outside layer of your skin. During these months, it is
usual for your skin to become more oily than normal. When your skin
does not have enough moisture, it will produce excess oils. To prevent
these excess oils, use Tree Hut Extra-Rich Moisturizing Lotion
as a smooth solution to your problem. A small amount can go a long way.
Massaging the lotion into your skin will make your body feel refreshed
and smelling clean instead of oily and unmanageable.
During the hot days of summer, our bodies tend to perspire more than
usual. This extra perspiration dries out our skin, causing the outer
layer of our skin to crack. Extra perspiration will also leave your skin
with clogged pores and an unhealthy complexion and breakouts. To get
rid of this dryness and unclog your pores, an exfoliating sugar scrub
will remove the dead skin cells that accumulate on your body throughout
the day. It is important after exfoliating, to moisturize with either a
Shea body lotion or Shea body butter. The natural extracts in Tree Huts
moisturizers will heal the skin and give you a healthy glow. When it’s
hot and the sun is shining, we can’t help but go outside and enjoy the
summer on the water. However, we must remember, before and after going
into the sun to moisturize. Moisturizing will hydrate your skin and
protect it from the element. When showering after a long day outside,
make sure to lather up with a body wash that will not only leave you
smelling nice, but one that will easily replenish your skin.
Fall is the time when the warm days are coming to an end and
exfoliating becomes an important part of your evening. Sugar body scrubs
are amazing for moments of exfoliation. Not only will the sugar scrubs
slouch away your dry flaky skin, but it will also help to hydrate the
skin as well. Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrub is a great choice for getting
rid of dry skin cells. The Tree Hut formula keeps its consistency and
does not turn into a useless liquid like other scrubs do. Moisturizing
is also important during the fall months. Just like during other seasons
of the year, moisturizing will ensure your body the feeling of being
refreshed and hydrated. Adding moisture to your body will help lock in
you natural moisture, throughout the day. This will help the skin remain
healthy and looking beautiful.
The winter season is the time to stay indoors close to the fire or to
relax in a nice warm shower or bath. As the cold, harsh winter season
approaches, the wind and the dryness in the air causes skin to become
flaky, dry and itchy. It becomes even more dehydrated than in the heat
of the summer months. Due to these extreme conditions, your body needs
extra attention in order to keep it from looking old and worn. After a
long day, jump into your shower and use a body wash
and a sugar scrub to get all of the dry, damaged layers of skin and
dirt off of your healthy skin underneath. This will leave your skin
smooth and refreshed. When done with your shower, immediately rub into
your skin an extra-rich moisturizer, either a body lotion or a body
butter, which will seal in all the moisture your body received from your
shower. For moments when your skin feels extra dry due to the harsh
winds outside and those problem areas, Shea Body Butter will give you a
deep miniaturization and transform your skin.
Now I cooked this in the slow cooker of my InstaPot for 4 hours and it was not long enough. So I decided to cook it on the stew/soup for 30 minutes IP and let the NPR. And it was perfect. This is amazing!
