As an herbalist and aromatherapist, I get asked more questions about how to support the skin holistically than perhaps any other topic.
In the winter months, we can find ourselves putting our skin on the back burner of our wellness routine. Schedules are hectic, daylight hours are short, and the many holiday feasts can leave our skin (and the rest of us) feeling tired. Not to mention, oftentimes, the winter season holds the unwelcome guests of sinus and chest congestion.
But our skin is important! We meet and greet the world with it every day.
Oftentimes, our skin reflects our inner state, both physically and emotionally. When we support our skin, we are caring for our whole selves as well. Seeing clean, healthy, and bright skin is a boost of encouragement and confidence for your day.
One of my favorite winter season holistic skin supports is an herbal steam. This tool is easy to create and use, and it is beneficial not only for our skin, but also for our mind, spirit, and respiratory system.
