The Prescription for Silky Winter Skin

Beautiful winter woman portrait looking happy

Is the winter season making your skin feel dry, tight or chapped?  Even in a warmer climate like we have here in south Texas, the colder weather can be harsh on our skin, and our hair doesn’t always like it, either.

There are some things you can do to keep your hair and skin glowing despite the gloomy weather.

  1. Drink water. Increase your fluid intake during the winter months when thirst is usually not a good indicator of hydration.
  2. Don’t skimp on your beauty rest.  Our bodies need that time to repair and rejuvenate.
  3. Cheers? If you’re having a cocktail, make sure to have one glass of water for every alcoholic beverage that you consume.
  4. Increase your intake of healthy fats to help lubricate your skin. Fish, olive, macadamia nut and coconut oils are a few of our favorites.

On top of these tips, my secret weapon, Hotze Face & Body Revitalizer Oil, is a lifesaver.  Made from Argan Oil, Rosehip Oil, Squalene and Vitamin E, this rich, intensely hydrating blend of oils is a perfect alternative to the chemical-laden moisturizers commercially available on the market.  As the name implies, you can use it on your face and body, but you’ll also be amazed by what it does for your hair, too.

Hotze Face & Body Revitalizer Oil:

  • Diminishes scarring caused by acne, eczema, surgery, chicken pox, and burns. It helps aid in the healing process by replacing scar tissue with healthy tissue.
  • Fights aging and helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Hydrates the Skin and helps restore the balance of healthy omega oils and water which re-hydrates the skin.
  • Lightens pigmentation (including “pregnancy mask”) because it increases the skin’s ability to produce new cells.
  • Reduces stretch marks by helping to repair and replace damaged skin tissue. In doing so, the appearance of stretch marks is reduced, and skin tone evens out.
  • Treats split ends and softens

You don’t have to wait until spring to have radiant skin again.  Call Hotze Pharmacy to order your Face & Body Revitalizer Oil today, (281) 828-9088.

Why You Should Change Skincare Products

Finding a good skincare regimen can be intimidating. When you walk the aisles of your beauty department, there are so many options, each with a different claim about health and beauty. Whatever product you choose, I encourage you select products that are the best – not just for your skin, but also for your overall health. You might not even realize the dangers of some ingredients in the products you use every day. In case you missed it, check out these ingredients to avoid.

Why you should change your skincare products

Change is hard. It’s even more difficult when you have found the perfect products for your skin. But did you know that most of us are slathering our faces with cosmetics that are filled with chemicals? Parabens, in particular, are some of the most prevalent chemicals to avoid in cosmetics.

Parabens are added to cosmetic and pharmaceutical products to act as a preservative, but can have dangerous effects on your body and have even been linked to breast cancer. Parabens mimic estrogen, and therefore can disrupt virtually every system in your body, including your thyroid.

Make sure to check the label when shopping for anything that you think might need to be preserved. You want to avoid products with any of these ingredients:

  • Methylparaben
  • Propylparaben
  • Isopropylparaben
  • Isobutylparaben
  • Butylparaben
  • Sodium Butylparaben

If you’re currently using Hotze Pharmacy’s compounded skincare, you can rest assured. Our preparations are compounded using only paraben-free ingredients so you can be sure you are getting the finest quality. If you have any questions about your current regimen and need some guidance, we are at your service. Give us a call at (281) 828-9088.
