Spoiler alert: glowing skin starts from the inside out. As much as I’d love to recommend products for glowing skin in winter and say “this is all you need!” I simply can’t. Badger stuff is pretty awesome, but it isn’t likely to impart glowing skin all on its own. Glowing skin comes from good health, which is a holistic process that includes awesome Badger stuff – and some other factors, too.
So I’m going to operate under the assumption that you are likely a pretty healthy human being. (I think this is a fair assumption, given that Badger fans care enough about themselves to use USDA certified organic body care.) However, if you aren’t taking good care of yourself at the moment (that’s ok! We all have ups and downs), or stumbled upon this article hoping for a secret hack for glowing skin (ok, there’s one secret hack at the end), you might not get the results you were hoping for. If so, bookmark this page and take a few weeks to drink lots of water, get some good rest, shake off that holiday stress, and meet me back here when you’re ready. Don’t worry, I’ll wait for you.
Now that we’re all on the same page, let’s look at the ways that we can assist our bodies for undeniably healthy, glowing skin this winter and for the rest of our lives! Here are my top picks for Badgers best products for soft, healthy, glowing skin.
This is my “can’t-live-without” Badger oil, and there’s something so deeply satisfying about using it. I think for me it’s the fact that I feel like royalty every single time I apply it. The light floral scent is uplifting, and if you use it while your skin is still slightly damp, it absorbs quickly and fully. And the magic of this oil is that the opposite is also true: apply a drop of oil to your face, and then mist with water. You’ll see that the oil holds the moisture close to the skin. Who says oil and water don’t get along?! (Science says that, but we’re talking magic!)
The jojoba and baobab oil combination is what really boosts your complexion. Naturally occurring vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids nourish and plump the skin while rosehip, seabuckthorn, and calendula provide a mighty antioxidant boost. It works best with Damascus Rose Cleansing Oil – but that’s a whole other blog post!
How it gives you glowing skin: you feel like royalty. This makes you walk taller and radiate with mystical powers of the ages. (Plus, since you use about one-quarter the amount you would generally use for a lotion, you’ll also feel lighter, cleverer, and thriftier because it will last a long time.)
In case you didn’t know, coconut oil softens skin almost instantly and beeswax helps to lock in moisture so it doesn’t evaporate from your skin as quickly. The combination of the two protects your skin for a day out in the elements.
How it gives you glowing skin: You smell like a cookie and feel just as sweet. The goodness radiates from within. You are a beacon of good tidings and reminiscent of macaroons. People love you.
Cocoa butter protects lips in the winter cold, especially when the air inside is hot and dry. But what puts this cocoa butter lip balm ahead of the others is the inclusion of tamanu oil – a sublimely soothing oil rich in fatty acids. The addition of tea tree and lemon balm provide extra herbal support when the arctic winds kick up.
How it gives you glowing skin: ok, here’s your one secret hack for glowing skin:
