We all know that winter can still deliver some unexpected changes in our system whether we like it or not. Skin breaks, brain mishaps, weight gain, emotional imbalance - just to name a few. Here's a quick breakdown to combat these common side effects and maintain that healthy glow during this season.
1. It's What's Inside That Matters Most
To exhibit a healthy front, we must take care of what's inside. When our organs are happy and healthy, we will only need minimal maintenance. Enter in our gastrointestinal tract and its friends. I recommend ingesting vitamins that will nourish you throughout the day. My best example for this is the Swanson Vitamin website for easy access in different categories like immune system, cardiovascular, joint and even some holistic food ingredients.
Daily intake of vitamins is a crucial need. There are two different types, first, are the water soluble vitamin: A vitamin that can dissolve in water. Water-soluble vitamins are carried to the body's tissues but are not stored in the body. They are found in plant and animal foods or dietary supplements and must be taken in daily. Vitamin C and members of the vitamin B complex are water-soluble. Second, are the fat-soluble vitamins: Vitamin A, D, E, K, Calcium and Protein.
2. Glowing Skin
Believe it or not, our skin gets dry during winter. Though we don't get sunburn we get winter burn/cold burns so it is also best to protect the largest organ that we have, our skin. These are some links that I recommend for that deep conditioning nourishment we all seek for.
Dermstore carries all renowned and trusted skincare and beauty products. You will see selections for any skin problems. Here's the link for products that helps with dehydration and dryness problems we see recurring every winter. When choosing a skincare, I always go for a product with Vitamin C, i.e. Retinol Serum with Vitamin C or Hyaluronic Acid with Vit. C. Vitamin C helps to keep our skin moisturized and keep it together. When we don't have enough, that's when our skin breaks.
Willa's Skin Elixir is a new product they just launched. I thought of sharing this but I haven't tried this one yet. Let me know if you've tried this and comment below for your review.
Don't forget! Drink lots of water and exercise regularly to combat that cabin fever!
3. Vegan Makeup
Sensitive skin's need doesn't have to be tricky anymore. There are a lot of vegan cosmetic lines out there you can try. Tarte Cosmetics is one company that I like that keeps true to their vegan collection.
EcoTools are your best bet when starting to go vegan. Their brushes are affordable and high quality and timelessly know to beauty bloggers.
