Smethwick, United Kingdom, December 02, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- For many people in the UK the arrival of winter unfortunately brings with it chapped and dry skin issues. ChemistDirect.co.uk offers a great selection of hugely discounted skincare products specifically designed to combat sore, chapped and dry skin without the use of harsh chemicals.
Excessive dryness during the harsh winter months can be caused by many factors, including cold weather, harsh winds, low humidity and central heating. Many people, particularly people with dry skin, choose to change their moisturiser with the seasons as they often find they require a richer textured moisturiser during winter to help combat the increased dryness.
Due to harsh ingredients found in many cosmetic products and environmental pollutants, skin related problems have increased 10 fold in recent years. The relationship between chemicals and skin problems has motivated doctors to focus their skin care efforts on eliminating chemicals and recommending skin care products that contain natural ingredients. Mitesh Soma, the founder of Chemist Direct, advises that “a great way to help improve your skin and get healthy, soft, supple and hydrated skin this winter is to try traditional approaches such as exercise, nutritious meals, avoiding smoking and excessive drinking and a good daily skin care routine with cleansers and moisturisers containing no harsh chemicals.”
“Natural skin care products that are free from parabens and artificial colours or fragrances that contain naturally active ingredients such as shea butter and natural essential oils can help protect our skin from the cold winter breeze and harsh free radicals in the environment that we can’t avoid” says Soma.
People are increasingly turning to more natural, organic skincare products rather than the likes of heavy cold creams containing all sorts of nasty chemicals that were once the norm. Chemist Direct offers a great choice of natural skincare products for all skin types. These include top selling products such as Trilogy 100% Pure Rosehip Oil 20ml at £12.99 (RRP £15.99), Weleda Wild Rose Day Cream 30ml at £8.50 (RRP £8.95) and Burt’s Bees Hand Repair Kit at £13.49 (RRP £14.67).
