We’re officially feeling the effects of the colder weather and dry air. Our skin is cracked, our lips are chapped, and we’re in need of some serious pampering! On top of the harsh winter weather, we’ve got the added stress of the holiday season and a pandemic keeping us busy and dealing with complicated social distancing guidelines.
Ahhh, time to take a deep breath. Trust me when I say I’ve got you covered when it comes to winter self-care. This guide to winter self-care features ways to boost your mood, relax your body and mind, pamper yourself, heal dry skin and lips, and find both comfort and joy during the winter months.
Use essential oils to boost your mood:
Stress and holiday busyness aside, the winter weather has a tendency to bring down our moods, especially after Christmas and New Year’s is over. One of the most effective ways to improve your mood is to use essential oils. You can add them to your unscented products, use them in cleaning products, add them to our hand sanitizer, or diffuse them in your house to lift your spirits. Try this Peace Herbal Blend Spray to spritz calming essential oils in every room of your house!
Bathe in dead sea salts to relax:
Relax tired muscles and sleep better with our effective dead sea salt soaks. Whether you’re experiencing stress, or you need to recover after working out, these bath salts will revive both your body and your mind. Magnesium, potassium, and calcium soak away aches, pains, and daily wear. I love the Peppermint soak for its festive scent, but you can also try this Unscented soak and add your own favorite essential oils!
Apply face masks for pampering:
There is truly nothing better for pampering yourself than using face masks. Not only do face masks cleanse, purify, and revitalize your skin, but they are also soothing, relaxing, and indulgent. I love the Detoxifying Clay Mask for that much-needed deep cleanse that removes pollutants and toxins from your skin. You can even use this mask for a spot treatment for any blemishes that you have. This Purifying Charcoal Mask is essential for cleansing your pores, purifying your skin, and gently exfoliating.
Use lip balm to heal chapped lips:
If there’s one thing you simply can’t skimp on during winter months, it’s taking care of your lips. Make sure you’re using lip balm daily to take care of your dry, chapped lips. I love using the Lip Care Duo which includes a shea butter lip balm with cherry, and a lip exfoliant.
Find a daily moisturizer and body lotion for soothing dry skin:
While you may already use a daily moisturizer for your face, make sure you’re also using a body lotion every day to ensure you’re combatting dry skin head to toe. For your face, try this luxurious Red Wine Deep Daily Moisturizer, and for your body, use one of these Shea Body Butters.
