Winter Health and Beauty Tips #1: Moisturizers are your Best Friend

Seriously use lotion on everything, every.single.day! Due to the dry winter air, your skin and hair will be dryer than normal. Moisturize your legs, face, arms, hands, lips, hair, feet, and anything else you can!

My Favorite Products to Use:

Winter Health and Beauty Tips #2: Sore throats? Natural Remedies!

Sore throats are so common in the winter time and they are so annoying. However, there are so many different foods to eat to help soothe and make your sore throat, well, not sore. In addition to fixing your sore throat, they are all very healthy for you to eat anyways. It’s really a win-win!

  • Tea (Lemon is my favorite)
  • Honey (put it in your tea)
  • Ice Cream (as if we need an excuse to eat some)
  • Bananas! (You should eat these everyday no matter what)
  • Cooked Carrots (I don’t like my carrots cooked, but this really does work)
  • Cooked Cabbage (I know it doesn’t taste the best, but it is worth it)

Winter Health and Beauty Tips #3: Watch your water!

  • First of all ALWAYS: Hydrate! I’m sure you hear this all the time, but it’s for a good reason! Water does miracles for your hair, skin, health, and body. Just drink it, all day long! Get yourself a good water bottle (my favorite) and take it with you everywhere!
  • Avoid hot water on your skin and hair! I literally suck at this and I always will. I LOVE steaming hot showers and I’m not giving them up. As a result, I have dry hair and skin. However, I try to end my shower with cold water, for a short time. If you can, avoid hot water. It dries out your skin and hair which we definitely don’t want!

Winter Health and Beauty Tips #4: Stay social and active!

Once again, I suck at this one in the winter time. It’s cold out and I just want to stay inside with my robe and slippers where it is cozy and warm. Don’t do this though. You need to continue to do activities with friends and family so you don’t fall into a slump. It is very common in Winter and sometimes uncontrollable, but planning weekly activities is a great way to try to avoid the winter blues.

  • Plan a girls/guys night
  • Go out for coffee or a meal with friends
  • Join a weekly activity in your community
  • Volunteer your time
  • Meet up with a friend once a week to try to learn a new hobby
  • Have dinner at your (parents, grandparents, friends, etc.) house once a week

Winter Health and Beauty Tips #5: Set weekly or daily goals

Finally, the last of my winter health and beauty tips. I recently started doing this one and it makes a huge difference on my overall mental health! Having a goal that you are working towards daily and weekly helps you stay motivated and stay on task. It helps my mind feel less distracted and stressed. Instead of thinking about every little thing that I need to do, I write it all down, and focus on my overall goal of the day and week. I also have larger goals for the month, year, and next 5 years. These goals may change and that’s okay! Most of all just make sure you are working towards something bigger, one day at a time!
