Though Spring has officially started, many may still have dry winter skin from the various snowstorms this past winter. Dry scaly skin can also occur indoors from heating your home, which, unless you live in the deep south or tropics, you’re not likely to stop doing any time soon. So what can you do while you wait for the weather to catch up with the calendar?
You may have been told you need to find a good moisturizer, but where do you start? Do you need an oil-based moisturizer, a water-based moisturizer? A natural moisturizer? An over-the-counter drug-infused moisturizer? The choices are nearly endless, and the longer you wait, the worse your dry scaly skin will become. But how do you choose the best moisturizer if you don’t understand the underlying causes of dry winter skin, and what skin care ingredients will help address each cause?
What causes dry skin?
Cold temperatures cause outside air to lose humidity, and forced air heating systems do the same to indoor air. Your skin breathes air just like your lungs, so when the air is dry, your skin is also dry. The red patches you may see when you have winter dry skin are typically the result of inflammation. Inflammation can cause and/or exacerbate dry skin, so when looking for a moisturizer to re-hydrate your dry winter skin, it is very important you choose one that will not only moisturize but help reduce your skin’s inflammation as well.
Moisturizing Natural Skin Care Ingredients Helpful for Dry Scaly Skin
Coffee – the caffeine content in coffee makes it a natural anti-inflammatory skin care ingredient. Try our coffee cocoa bath scrub to experience the anti-inflammatory properties of coffee combined with the powerful moisturizing abilities of unrefined cocoa butter. Coffee’s natural anti-inflammatory abilities are also the reasoning behind our including it in our Cellu Coffee Soap to help reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Evening Primrose Oil – Certified Organic Evening Primrose Oil is both moisturizing and anti-inflammatory, and thus, addresses both causes of dry winter skin at once. We use Certified Organic Evening Primrose Oil as one of the primary ingredients in our Tre’Yours BeRestored Face Cream, making it an excellent choice of moisturizer for those with a genetic predisposition towards dry skin.
Keep in mind when using these skin care ingredients and products that they are not intended to treat or cure any disease associated with dry scaly skin such as eczema, psoriasis, or rosacea, though they are all excellent moisturizers to use if you have these conditions. But be sure to reapply them often to keep dry winter skin at bay.
How do I get glowing skin for a beach body? Are there any detox skin care solutions? What is a scrub, and why should I use one? If you’ve been asking yourself these questions, or are just interested in reading about natural skin care topics in general, you may wish to check out Castle Baths’ four new skin care solution articles.
Detox Skin Care Solutions from Castle Baths
In our last blog, we introduced our readers to the concept of detox skin care solutions as an alternative or addition to detox dieting. For those interested in learning more about detox skin care, we now have two pages on our website devoted exclusively to this topic, which go into much more detail on how toxins end up in your skin and how to remove them naturally.
For instance, did you know that your body’s biological detox systems such as the liver and kidneys detox your body by pushing toxins out of your organs and into your skin? Similar to the means by which tear stains can build up in your pet’s hair over time, toxins can lie dormant in the deep layers of your skin for weeks, months, or even years – accumulating to the point where they can cause acne, premature wrinkles, or in extreme cases, even skin cancer! Find out which natural skin care products work best for removing toxins from the body and skin before they have their chance to take their toll on your health, and where to purchase detox skin care products from Castle Baths.

Detoxing your body is a popular, and sometimes controversial topic in fitness and wellness circles these days. On one side, there are experts who say that our bodies are being exposed to toxins every day from air quality pollutants to toxins in the foods we eat. These experts argue that our modern lifestyles have supersaturated our bodies with toxins, and that detoxification methods such as detox diets are necessary to help our bodies’ natural purification systems eliminate these toxins before they cause disease.
On the other side, there are experts who argue that detox diets are actually bad for our health, and essentially starve our bodies of much needed nutrients in our efforts to eliminate toxins. Opponents of detox diets argue that such extreme dieting has the potential to result in fatigue, loss of muscle tissue, lower metabolism, and other health problems.
The problem is, both groups of experts are right.
Our bodies are being exposed to toxins and environmental pollutants on a daily basis, and detox diets can be dangerous for some people. Fortunately, there’s a third alternative – one which can help eliminate toxins from the body without risking the potential health hazards of any kind of diet: Dead Sea skin care products.
Dead Sea detox skin care solutions, such as those made with dead sea mud, dead sea salt, and dead sea brine, have incredible detox and deep-cleansing powers that you don’t have to starve yourself to experience. The restorative abilities of the Dead Sea have been known since ancient times, and have proven scientific evidence of their health benefits – something many proponents of detox diets have yet to produce.
Dead Sea products achieve their detoxification results by deep-cleansing the pores and deep layers of your skin, where few other bath and body products can reach. Furthermore, the skin is actually one of the main ways by which toxins enter our bodies. We put toxins into our skin every day when we use mass-produced synthetic cosmetics such as lipstick, nail polish, and even many lotions. That’s right – that giant tube of face cream you bought at the drug store that claims it will cleanse your skin is actually doing just the opposite.
To detox your body naturally using Dead Sea skin care products, try using Dead Sea Bath Salts with your next soak in the tub. For additional detox benefits, try some of Castle Baths’ Green Tea Infusion Bath Salts, which deliver not only the deep-cleansing benefits of Dead Sea Salt, but also a rich source of antioxidants (a key detox ingredient) found naturally in Green Tea.
The best part of all about using Dead Sea skin care products to detox your body is that, unlike detox diets, they carry absolutely no risk to you. Soak in Dead Sea Bath Salts as often as you like, use Dead Sea facial soaps every day, and you’ll be well on your way to detoxing and cleansing your body the right way!

After coming home after a day of skiing, Samantha removed her heavy winter overcoat and knitted hat. She proceeded up the stairs to take a shower, but was startled when the feel of the water droplets hitting her skin triggered a burning sensation. She checked the dial on the faucet, but as she suspected, she hadn’t set it to be as hot as it felt. After muddling through the pain of her shower, she looked into the mirror and saw red splotches all over her face and neck. Despite it being the middle of February, it looked as though she had all the symptoms of a sunburn.
If you’ve been in a situation similar to Samatha’s, be advised that her initial diagnosis was correct. You can indeed get a sunburn at any time of the year, even during a cold winter day. This is just one of the reasons it is important to take good care of your skin during the winter as well as in the summer.
But how? How is skin susceptible to sunburn during the winter, and what can be done about it? Aside from trying to find a sunscreen not overloaded with chemicals and preservatives, which is no easy task to be sure, there are several natural skin care ingredients you can use to help soothe and mitigate the effects of winter sunburns (and summer sunburns too, for that matter.)
How do sunburns occur in winter?
Before discussing the various skin care ingredients you can use to help sunburned skin, let’s first talk about how sunburn even manages to occur during winter. A sunburn is, essentially, a mild case of ultraviolet radiation poisoning. When ultraviolet rays come into contact with skin, they damage its outer layer by causing it to produce chemicals known as free radicals. Your body responds by increasing blood flow to your skin, resulting in the blotchy redness indicative of sunburn, and releases chemicals that trigger your skin’s pain receptors, alerting you to the damage. Sunburns can occur during winter due to a variety of environmental conditions including:
Snow: snow can reflect up to 85% of ultraviolet radiation
Ice and water: water or ice reflects 100% of ultraviolet rays, making reflective sunlight just as damaging as direct exposure.
Altitude: Ultraviolet ray intensity increases approximately 4% for every 1,000 feet above sea level, so if you go skiing in the mountains, be careful!
The pain, redness, and itchiness associated with sunburns will go away in time. However, the free radicals produced by sunburns, if left untreated, will continue to build up inside your skin over many years, eventually causing DNA damage that can result in premature wrinkles, brown spots, and even skin cancer!
What can people do to protect their skin from sunburns during wintertime?
Free radicals cause damage to skin via oxidation – the same chemical reaction that causes iron to rust when exposed to rain and other weather over many years. To keep this from happening inside your body, look for skin care ingredients that contain antioxidants. Antioxidants are precisely what they sound like – substances that fight oxidation. One of the most popular antioxidant skin care ingredients you may know of is Aloe. Aloe contains many antioxidants including Vitamins, A, C and E, antioxidant polysaccharides and flavanoids, and also the mineral antioxidants, zinc and selenium. The next time you are sunburned, try rubbing Aloe Body Butter into your skin. Its Aloe and Organic Shea Butter mixture will help soothe your skin’s itchiness and pain while working on the deeper layers of your skin to break down and purge free radicals.
Mango Butter is also an excellent choice for soothing sunburned skin. Mango Butter is widely used by people living in tropical areas where strong UV rays occur year-round. In addition to containing numerous antioxidant and moisturizing substances, Mango butter also contains a triterpene known as lupeol, which has been found in laboratories to effectively inhibit skin cancer.
If it is your face, neck, or chest that is sunburned, you may want to try a Hazelnut Oil skin care product such as Tre’Yours Hazelnut Neck and Chest Cream to soothe your skin. Hazelnut oil is rich in B vitamins, as well as Vitamin E, plant phenolics, and other antioxidants. It also functions as an excellent moisturizer for dry skin, as well as help purify your skin of free radicals generated by other sources such as pollution.
Keep in mind, however, that these skin care ingredients, while excellent for soothing skin that has already been sunburned, may not prevent sunburns from occurring in the first place. The best way to prevent sunburn during winter is to simply use common sense: wear sunglasses, bundle up, never use a UV tanning bed, and try to limit your time outdoors on bright sunny days.
Imagine sitting at your desk in front of your computer, being so engrossed in what you’re working on that you suddenly realize you’ve lost feeling in one of your feet. You try to move it, only to feel a slight tingling sensation. Though your foot is obviously the same size it ever was, it also feels as though your foot has grown an inch-thick layer of extra skin that is preventing you from feeling the inside of your shoe. You stand up and brace yourself for the onslaught of the ticklish sensations that will soon envelop your leg. The sensations of having one of your feet “fall asleep” are certainly unpleasant, and can be quite embarrassing at times as well, especially if a coworker walks in on you trying to walk normally and occasionally bursting into laughter from the tickling of your leg, but chances are you’ll forget about it as soon as your foot returns to normal.
For a diabetic person, however, these same sensations can be an early warning sign of a serious medical problem. As such, if you or someone you know suffers from diabetes, it is extremely important to always take these symptoms seriously, and develop an effective foot care regimen to keep that person’s feet “awake.”
What causes these symptoms and how can I prevent them?
The lack of feeling in a foot, and the sensation of having grown an extra inch-thick layer of skin is actually the result of your foot swelling due to poor circulation. In essence, your foot does not receive enough blood and thus, its normally sensitive nerves cannot function properly. This actually causes the skin on your foot to expand and become puffy, though not nearly as visibly puffy as the inch-thick layer of skin imagine it has grown when this occurs. The tingling and tickling feelings you experience when you realize your foot has “gone to sleep” are actually caused by your body attempting to restore normal blood flow to your foot. To prevent these symptoms from occurring, it is essential to make sure your foot always has adequate circulation.
The best way to keep blood flowing to the feet, aside from making sure you or your diabetic friend’s feet remain in a natural position, is to soak them in a warm bath with Dead Sea Bath Salts. Dead Sea Salt is well known to help boost circulation, particularly so in the extremities.
But don’t bath salts make you sweat? And isn’t sweating equally bad for diabetics? The answer is “yes” to both questions in regards to typical bath salts made with Epsom salt. Epsom salt can be very dehydrating to the skin, and will likely cause sweating, which is indeed bad for diabetics. Dead Sea Salt, however, has a unique chemical structure found only in the waters of the Dead Sea that causes them to have unique healing properties. As mentioned, these properties include the boosting of circulation, and, unlike Epsom salt, they are great for skin moisturizing too!
Pour lukewarm water into a foot basin. Make sure the water is not too hot, as this in and of itself will cause foot swelling and defeat the purpose of the salts you are about to add.
Add the Dead Sea Bath Salts to the foot bath in the amount specified on the label for the product you have chosen. For an enjoyable aromatherapy experience while soaking, try Dead Sea Salts that have been scented with a blend of essential oils.
Wash the feet with a bar of coffee spa soap, as this will also help boost circulation.
Let the feet soak in the bath for 20 minutes or the time specified on the instructions for your Dead Sea Salts.
Please keep in mind that these instructions are for preventative skin care only. If you or a diabetic person you know actually experiences the symptoms of one or both feet “falling asleep,” consult a physician immediately.

When it comes to selecting a romantic Valentine’s Day gift for your girlfriend or wife, spa products are always a staple. But, if you’re a guy, chances are you’re not all that up-to-date on the latest home spa and cosmetics trends for women. So how do you proceed? Sure, you could go into your nearest Bath & Body Works and ask a sales associate to recommend something, grab it, go through express checkout, and be done shopping in about half an hour. But what does taking this course of action really say about you? That you took the time and effort to get your significant other something you know she’ll enjoy? Or that you almost forgot all about Valentine’s Day and rushed to purchase the cheapest and quickest gift you could find on such short notice?
Chances are, she’ll interpret it to be the latter, especially once she notices that you forgot to cut the price tag off the bottom. So, if you do decide to go with spa products this Valentine’s Day, be sure to do your homework before you buy. Or, if you feel embarrassed about potentially being seen researching such a feminine topic on the Internet, just take a look at the suggestions below.
Go natural. Nothing says, “I love you” quite like a collection of bottles filled with cancer-causing chemical soup, right? Handmade, natural spa products make for a much more romantic (and healthful) gift than the synthetic, chemical-based products you’re likely to find in box stores. Many creators of handmade, natural spa products operate exclusively online, so you can shop around from the comfort of your home, and some will even offer you perks such as a free Valentine’s Day card with a custom, handwritten message, and free shipping.
Consider a gift basket. Not sure what she’d like. Give her some of everything. Natural spa gift baskets make great romantic gifts, and some can be enjoyed by both the giver and the recipient. For example, Castle Baths’ Love Gift Basket includes one 8oz bottle of natural massage oil, scented in a sexy aromatherapy blend of essential oils. Conclude the evening by offering her a sensual massage using the oil you have given her, and then let her do the same for you!
Three words: chocolate spa products. Chocolate, especially dark chocolate is another staple Valentine’s Day gift. But before you go and buy that box of chocolates like every other guy in line ahead of you at the store, consider thinking outside the box (literally) when it comes to your gift this year and give her some chocolate-scented spa products. Chocolate-scented natural spa products combine these two classic Valentine’s gifts into one. Also, did you know that dark chocolate is good for the skin? Consider this Cocoa Body Butter or Coffee Cocoa Body Scrub (pictured right.)
Soap is always useful. If you don’t know her tastes or she isn’t a big spa aficionado, handmade, patterned bars of natural soap are usually a safe bet. She can use it in the tub, in the kitchen, or just as a decorative item if the soap is patterned. You can even find chocolate-scented patterned soaps such as Castle Baths’ new Valentine’s Day Rose Soap Bouquet, available in your choice of dark chocolate or vanilla musk with a hint of white chocolate.
Be tactful with anti-aging spa products. Anti-aging spa products make great gifts so long as you do not draw too much attention to the fact that they are anti-aging. While she’s sure to appreciate and use the products you give her, she may interpret it as a subliminal message that you consider her less attractive. This is, most likely, not the case, and indeed, a good anti-aging moisturizing cream can benefit anyone, even people in their 20s. But to avoid any miscommunication during your romantic evening, it’s best you stick with natural, herbal anti-aging products if you choose to go this route for your gift. Natural anti-aging products, as opposed to the often less-than-effective “cosmeceuticals” sold in beauty stores, are more like good preventative care than purported miracle cures for wrinkles, and, when used regularly, can help delay the onset of many physical signs of aging. So why not give her a spa gift basket like this Tre’Yours Dead Sea Spa Gift Basket that says, “I want to preserve us, our relationship, and this moment forever,” instead of one that simply says, “You look old.”
Finding the perfect romantic gift doesn’t have to be difficult, especially when you keep these tips in mind during your search. Have a happy, romantic Valentine’s Day this year, and many more to come!

What do you get when you combine a dozen roses, chocolate, and luxurious natural soaps and spa products? The answer is: Castle Baths’ new Valentine’s Day Rose Bouquet Soap. This Castle Baths specialty gift item gives you 12 rose-shaped natural soaps scented in your choice of dark chocolate or a musky vanilla with a hint of white chocolate. The product went live on Castle Baths’ website on Monday, January 14, 2013.
As its title suggests, the product was developed as a Valentine’s Day gift idea for women – one that could serve as an alternative to the cliche box of chocolates or dozen real roses.
“The idea was to give men who were uncertain what to get their sweethearts for Valentine’s Day or who wanted to give a gift that was different from what everybody gives a unique alternative,” said Castle Baths owner and product developer Laura Thomas. “A bouquet of real roses might be a romantic gift, but it’s something almost everybody does around Valentine’s Day. But you won’t find these chocolate soap roses anywhere else. Plus, 12 bars of soap are a lot more useful than 12 cut roses when you consider your gift choices from a practical standpoint.”
Unlike some of Castle Baths other gift items targeted towards Valentine’s Day, such as their Love Spa Gift Basket, which is available for purchase year-round, this particular gift item will only be available until February 14. Afterwards, it will be taken off Castle Baths’ website, not to be seen again until one month before Valentine’s Day 2014.
To promote the new, intentionally short-lived gift item, Castle Baths is hosting a social media giveaway. Those interested in receiving their Valentine’s Day Rose Soap Bouquet for free are encouraged to take the social media actions listed on Castle Baths’ giveaway page in order to increase their chances of being a winner.

There are no shortage of images people associate with wintertime, from drinking hot beverages while sitting by a fireplace, to kids playing in three feet of snow, to the crisp, dry air and freezing temperatures that allow you to see your breath. But when it comes to foot care, one unsightly image tends to come to mind before anything else: cracked heels.
If your heels feel rough, itchy, or painful, and you see yellowish lesions forming on them, chances are you are one of the many sufferers of cracked heels. Even if your symptoms haven’t yet progressed to this extreme, if you notice callouses or rough patches of skin on your heels, you may be well on your way. Fortunately, there’s a simple and easy solution to get your feet feeling soft and smooth again: body butter.
Typically used in place of water-based moisturizers to hydrate a person’s arms and legs during wintertime, body butters can also work wonders on feet. This is because cracked heels are, in reality, nothing more than extreme cases of dry skin. As you probably know, the drying effects of both cold outdoor temperatures and heated indoor temperatures can have a combined dehydrating effect on the skin. This is particularly true of the skin on your feet.
Though other factors such as standing for long periods of time on hard surface floors, wearing shoes with open backs, and being predisposed to other foot problems or skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema can influence or aggravate cracked heels, (which is why your heels may crack even in the summer from walking around all day in sandals) the solution is the same: just add body butter.
Pure, unrefined Shea Butter is one of the most popular body butters for foot care, butters made with Mango Butter or Cocoa Butter are just as effective. Our Slice of Life Gift Basket is also a great option if you’re looking to help a friend or loved one with cracked feet, as this gift basket includes a body butter among other spa products.
If you do not see any improvement in your cracked heels, or if your lesions have progressed to the point where your heels are bleeding and/or have open sores, please consult a podiatrist, as you may have developed a problem more serious than a simple case of dry skin. Also please keep in mind that this site is for informational purposes only and is not intended to be used for diagnosis or treatment of any medical condition.
We hope you find this winter season lesion-free. Be sure to check back with us next week for more skin care and beauty tips and information.
