OK, the weather is cooling down, so often showers are hotter & longer, there are more hot drinks like coffee or tea, the heaters are on, & exercise can drop off a bit. It is these little things adding up that can impact your skin & hair.
What to do?
Here are some of my favs to keep skin & hair looking good.
Keep these into your daily routine:
💧 Water – you need to hydrate! Go for approx. 2L a day – yup, even in winter
🍎 Load up on fresh fruit & vege
🥑 Add in some good fats THINK Omega 3 & 6 so oily fish like salmon or mackerel, avo, nuts & seeds, extra virgin olive oil
Cut down, or step back entirely from:
☕️ Alcohol & caffeine
🍔 Processed foods
Some extra tips.
💋 Use lip balm daily, to reduce the effects of heating & outdoor weather.
🛁 Choose a gentle body wash, so you don’t strip the natural oils from your skin. Our skin has its own little microbiome happening & this is easily disrupted with harsh soaps for chemicals. I love Castille soap or goat’s milk soap.
🍯 DIY exfoliator. Blitz up ¼ cup of instant oats, add ¼ cup water & 2 tsp. honey. If this doesn’t tickle your fancy there are loads of options on the internet.
🥥 Coconut oil is great for hydration. Dry off from your shower & use sparingly whilst skin is still damp & warm.
Of course, there are many other ways to help your skin during cooler weather, but these will definitely get you started.
