December has arrived! We look forward to the holidays, to visits from friends and family, but what about the cold weather and icy winds? With the cold comes dry skin, dry hair, chapped lips, and dry, scaly hands. We have a solution: Skinny & Co. Coconut Oil! Skinny and Co. offers cold-weather solutions for your entire body!
Coconut oil is one of nature’s wonders and one of its many benefits is being very light and moisturizing. You can use it as a hydrating lotion on your hands, arms, legs, face - your whole body. The added bonus? Coconut oil smells good! We recommend trying one of our body butters such as the Skinny & Co. White Grapefruit Whipped Body Butter for long-lasting deep moisture, or our Calming Lavender Almond Body Melt for locking in moisture after your shower or bath.
Dry hair is annoying, especially if you have curly hair. Coconut oil can help keep it soft and moisturized without feeling heavy. Just apply a small scoopful to your hair and work into the ends, making sure to avoid the scalp. Using Skinny Coconut Oil as a leave-in conditioner creates a barrier between the cold and your hair.
Chapped lips are not only a nuisance but can be painful. Skinny Coconut Oil is a very good alternative to petroleum jelly based lip balms, and it doesn’t feel heavy like petroleum jelly can. Just grab a pea-sized dollop, spread it on your lips and let it soak in. Soon your lips will feel like they did back in the summer. You can also try one of our Lip Balms for a yummy, portable lip balm.
Lastly, if dry, flaky skin becomes an issue, we have a great solution for that - our exfoliating Vanilla Sugar Scrub. Using sugar scrub on your face and lips will slough away dead skin cells, leaving your face smooth and glowing. Use it in your shower or bath for head-to-toe exfoliation and to hydrate your skin from head to toe. Lastly, use it on your hands and feet for an at-home spa day and to show your hardest-working body parts extra love during the cold winter months. The best part - it is made with Skinny & Co. Coconut Oil as a base, leaving your skin well hydrated without the need for a follow-up moisturizer.
