There is no denying it, the winter is here and in full force. Itchy skin, dry eyes, chapped lips and a stuffy nose are just the start of winter woes. Today let's talk about winter care!



Try these simple tips and tricks to beat the harsh effects of the coldest months.





1. Don’t forget to moisturize


From skating to snow shoeing and snowy walks, winter is full of fun activities. However, we all know the cold can take a toll on our skin. In the harsh winter months, you should be paying more attention to your skincare routine. Try exfoliating more, limiting hot water and using a moisturizer. Dermal therapy body lotion is one option to help relieve dry, cracked, and itchy skin. With alpha hydroxy acids, it helps to replace old dry skin to reveal new skin and will help keep your skin smooth during the winter. 



2. Stay on top of dry lips


Exfoliate your lips twice a week to help prevent chapping. Before you go to bed, make sure you apply a thick lip balm to bring back some of the moisture you may have lost during the day.




3. Fight congestion


A stuffy nose and cold weather go hand-in-hand, and this can dampen your day. Sleeping with an extra pillow to elevate your head, using a humidifier and taking hot steamy showers can help clear your congestion. You can also try a nasal spray like hydraSense Medium Stream. I have found these to make a huge difference for me! hydraSense is made from 100 per cent naturally- sourced seawater and helps to flush out excess mucus to relieve nasal congestion. Free your nose this winter!



4. Combat dry eyes 


Cold winds and dry indoor heating are a recipe for eye discomfort. Make sure to give your eyes breaks during the day by looking away from your electronics or wearing glasses instead of contacts. hydraSense Advanced for Dry Eyes is one option for effective, long-lasting relief for your irritated eyes. It is preservative free and contains a clinically proven naturally sourced lubricant.   


5. Stay hydrated


You may be great at staying on top of your water intake during the summer because of the heat, but it is just as important to stay hydrated during the winter. I'm finding this especially important now that I live in Utah where it's really dry- extra water is essential for me! Don’t forget to carry around a water bottle and drink regularly throughout the day.  


6. Get your rest


Less sunlight and the chaos of the holidays can often make you feel tired, so getting a good night’s sleep to restore your energy is especially important during this time of year. Try your best to stick to a consistent sleep schedule. If you have a hard time getting to sleep, try a relaxing night time routine, such as reading a book or gentle stretches.

 


With fun outdoor activities, and the holidays, the winter is an exciting time of year! 

Don’t let the harsh weather hold you back from doing what you love.

  2. Moisturize for sure!!! My hands get so dry and I do not love the feeling of lotion. I do love a good salve like the Ultimate Strength Hand Salve by Kiehl's. Plus adding a bit of extra cool air moisture to your home air can be so helpful.

    1. Yes, when you find something that works on your hands/skin, you don't want to go back to other stuff! That's a good point about adding fresh air into the mix!
